Danley Sound Labs is expanding its OS “Outdoor Series” of fully-weatherized loudspeakers, including a new subwoofer.
Although all Danley products are optionally available with level-2 weatherization, which includes fiberglass seams, stainless steel hardware, and protective coatings over all wooden components, the fact remains that those wooden components will have a shorter life span in the elements than they would have had in an indoor installation.
In contrast, Danley OS products are constructed of molded plastic with a custom injection molded shell rated to last 50 years. The cabinet is sealed so the inner components are also protected from harsh outdoor elements. The materials are sourced from within a half-hour of Danley’s Gainesville, GA headquarters, which is particularly helpful with large orders and/or short lead times.
“Like all of our Synergy Horn loudspeakers, the Danley OS-80 sounds fantastic,” says Mike Hedden, president of Danley Sound Labs. “Fidelity is excellent and distortion is remarkably low at all SPLs, and the OS-80 has the same highly-articulated coverage pattern and arrayability for which Danley is known. What sets the OS-80 apart is that its construction and materials make it impervious to the weather, for years and decades to come. Our local sources and molding machinery make it easy for us to turn over large Outdoor Series orders on short notice. Moreover, the molding process itself is very efficient, which allows us to sell the OS products at fiercely competitive prices.”
Soon, the OS-80’s versatile 80-degree conical coverage pattern will be joined by other OS models available with several coverage patterns that will give designers greater flexibility to meet the needs of a range of outdoor situations. These will include the OS-90 and OS-100. In addition, the new Danley OS-115LF subwoofer will extend the bottom end of the OS line and the OS Nano will meet very small applications.
