See how easily you can stream music to
your SoundTouch outdoor speakers »

What’s better than relaxing in your backyard, by the patio or pool? Listening to your favorite music while you’re there, and enjoying deep, full stereo sound. With the SoundTouch™ outdoor speaker system, you can stream Internet radio, Deezer, Spotify®, iHeartRadio®, Pandora® and your music library outside—all at the touch of a button. If you have a home Wi-Fi® network, you’re ready to make hanging out even more fun.

  • Wireless connection via your home Wi-Fi network to stream Internet radio, music services like Deezer and Spotify, and your music library outdoors

  • Rich sound and clear performance—even in large outside areas

  • Rugged speaker construction designed to withstand snow, rain and extreme temperatures

  • Premium remote control lets you use presets, control
    volume, skip, pause and power on/off with the touch of a button

  • Customize zones for different music in different rooms, or play the
    same music in every room (with additional SoundTouch™ products)

  • Choose your speakers: 251 or 151 SE speakers. Compare

Performance that has you covered

Most speakers can’t deliver sound evenly over a large outdoor area. But our outdoor speakers are uniquely engineered to give you full stereo performance across a much wider space. Choose 251 environmental speakers, our best wall-mounted outdoor speakers for powerful full-range sound. Or the versatile 151 SE environmental speakers that you can mount horizontally or vertically.

Built for the great outdoors

Whether you’re unwinding on your own or entertaining friends and family, you want your music to keep up with you. These speakers will stand up to the cold, heat, snow and rain. So when the weather’s just right, your music will be right there with you.

Everything you need to stream music

Both SoundTouch™ outdoor speaker systems include the SoundTouch™ SA-4 amplifier, SoundTouch™ wireless adapter and SoundTouch™ controller. The controller has an intuitive design that lets you immediately access and control your music wirelessly, so you don’t need to use your smartphone, tablet or computer.

Welcome to the world of streaming music

Not just another speaker

SoundTouch™ is an entirely new way to stream music wirelessly around your home, easier than ever before. SoundTouch™ systems connect directly to your favorite Internet stations and streaming music sources like Deezer, Pandora, Spotify and iHeartRadio, putting them right at your fingertips. Wi-Fi streaming is fast becoming the new listening standard. We’ve made it easier and more rewarding for you to enjoy.

 

 

Music is one touch away

When it comes to music, you know what you like. That’s why we designed SoundTouch™ Wi-Fi music systems differently than others. They feature six presets that you can easily set (and change) directly on the system or with the free SoundTouch™ app. Instantly, your favorite music plays at the touch of a button, like on your car radio. It’s an approach that makes streaming music as easy as turning on a light—only much more fun

Powerful SoundTouch™ app

The SoundTouch™ app makes it easy to explore new music and organize what you have. Use it to set up the system on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Then the fun begins. You can drag and drop any music source—a favorite album on Spotify, an iTunes® playlist, an Internet radio station—to your six presets. Now they're just a touch away. But when you want to venture beyond your presets, use the app to find more music. Browse the online musical universe or files from your own music library. You can also use the app to manage multiple systems in different rooms.

Built for multi-room audio

If you truly love music, you want it to flow through your home. That’s why there’s a SoundTouch™ system for every room—from small and portable speakers to outdoor systems and home theater. Start with any one SoundTouch™ system, and keep adding them whenever you’d like. These systems work together to create a multi-room listening experience, so you can play the same music everywhere or listen to different music in different rooms—even on the patio.

Manuals

SoundTouch™ SA-4 amplifier

Can I mount the speakers horizontally and vertically?

251 speakers are designed for vertical mounting only. 151 speakers can be mounted horizontally and vertically.

What conditions and temperature extremes can these speakers withstand?

Our outdoor speakers are designed to withstand:
    -  Sun, high humidity (rain and snow), salt and fog
    -  Temperature extremes (-40° F to 158° F; -40° C to 70° C)
    -  Permanent outdoor installation

Where should the SoundTouch™ SA-4 adapter be located when installing the SoundTouch™ SA-4 amplifier?

We recommend placing the SoundTouch™ adapter within one wall of the location where the speakers and SoundTouch™ controller are used. Also, the SoundTouch™ adapter should never be placed in a metal wall panel or cabinet.

Can I control multiple systems with one SoundTouch™ controller?

No. The SoundTouch™ controller is designed to control one SoundTouch™ system at a time.

What is the range of the controller?

Approximately 70 feet from the paired system in wood-construction homes. In concrete, stucco or brick homes, the range will likely be less and may vary. The number of other active wireless devices in the house may affect range as well. You can also use the controller outdoors, but you shouldn’t leave it exposed to the elements or mount it outside of your home.

Can I mount the SoundTouch™ controller to a wall?

Yes, anywhere indoors with the included wall-mount bracket. The SoundTouch™ controller magnetically attaches to the wall mount so you can easily take it when you need it. The magnet is in the wall-mount—not the controller—so for example, you cannot attach the controller to a refrigerator.

What is needed to set up my SoundTouch™ outdoor speaker system?

If you have a computer and a home Wi-Fi network, you have all you need for setup. Everything else required is included with the products that are included in this package.

Do I need a smartphone or tablet to use the system?

No. You can use a computer to explore music and personalize presets using the SoundTouch™ app. And you can access your presets directly through the SoundTouch™ controller, without having to use a tablet, smartphone and, once set up, a computer.

Are SoundTouch™ systems Bluetooth® compatible?

No. SoundTouch™ systems are designed for use in and around the home on your Wi-Fi network. Bluetooth technology is best-suited for mobile on-the-go applications where close-range connections are generally preferred.

What Internet streaming music can I play?

SoundTouch™ systems let you play Internet radio stations from around the world. Where available, you can also play music services like Deezer, Spotify®, iHeartRadio® and Pandora®. We'll continue to add new ones as they become available.

Can I play music stored on my computer?

Yes. SoundTouch™ systems can play music stored on your computer that is managed by iTunes® or Windows Media Player.

Can I stream different music to different rooms?

Yes, if you have multiple SoundTouch™ products, you can stream different music in different rooms, the same music in every room or customize zones to play what you want where you want.

Can I stream from apps or music stored on my smartphone?

You can stream music from an iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch® to SoundTouch™ Wi-Fi music systems via AirPlay®. You cannot stream music stored on an Android™ phone or from apps on an Android phone.

How many systems can I have on my network at one time?

It depends on the bandwidth of your home Wi-Fi network. For most homes, we expect you can have up to four systems connected wirelessly. For more than four rooms, we recommend using Ethernet wired connections to some of them.

What operating systems are compatible with the SoundTouch™ app?

The app is compatible with Windows® XP, 7, 8; 64-bit Macs running OSX 10.6.8 and later; any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS5 and later; Android devices running Android 4.03 and later.

Can I play stored music from an NAS drive on SoundTouch™ systems?

Yes, SoundTouch™ systems are compatible with select NAS drives, including Synology’s DiskStation and Western Digital’s My Cloud™, so you can stream your personal music library even while your computer is off.

What audio formats are supported by SoundTouch™ systems?

Right now, MP3, WMA, M4A, AAC and Apple® Lossless formats are supported. We plan to add FLAC as part of a software update in early 2014.

I already own speakers that I’d like to use to stream music. How can I do this?

You can use your own speakers to easily stream music with the SoundTouch™ SA-4 amplifier. The SA-4 amplifier works with your existing home Wi-Fi® network, so you don’t need any extra equipment.
