Serving as the backbone for a modern outdoor A/V setup, the new C Seed Hyde 125 outdoor speaker system can be configured by integrators to provide the soundtrack for summertime fun.

Launching in 2009, C Seed is a Vienna, Austria-based manufacturer of A/V products that include indoor and outdoor TVs and speaker systems. 

Since its inception, C Seed says it has "been working on the development of the ultimate speakers, having one thing in mind—redefinition of quality in outdoor sound."

According to C Seed, the Hyde 125 system combines its "minimalistic design and top-notch Austrian engineering with L-Acoustics' leadership in professional sound."

Developed to serve property owners looking for a discreet audio solution, the Hyde 125 system resides in underfloor storage enclosures that activate from a single button push from its companion C Seed Audio app. Once activated, the speakers will automatically rise up to face listeners, and then lower once a listening session has been completed. 

C Seed Outdoor Speakers Feature L-Acoustics Audio Engineering

C Seed and L-Acoustics, a well known manufacturer of line array systems, worked together to create a system designed to meet the full frequency demands of content including music, movies, and games.  

In order to deliver a wide field of coverage, the Hyde 125 system employs a passive L-Acoustics design that produces a dispersion pattern of 100 degrees. This allows integrators to setup systems ranging from simple stereo 2.0 designs, to full 9.1 outdoor home theaters. 

The speaker system is available in a choice of black or white finishes, with custom colors also available.
