Audiophile Performance. Designed for the Outdoors.
With Garden Oasis (GO), the bass is meant to be handled by a dedicated subwoofer that uses a specially designed port and hood to evenly distribute bass within a listening area. This not only removes a lot of stress from the other speakers, but it also means you get an incredible full range sound at ALL volumes. Since the bass is being handled by a subwoofer, the other speakers can also be much smaller in size making them easier to hide while still providing great sound.
Performance outdoor sound is easy to achieve with the Garden Oasis Essentials Outdoor System, an all-in-one package with 8 speakers and ground stakes, 1 in-ground subwoofer and waterproof wire connectors for easy installation in outdoor spaces. Even coverage means you can enjoy music at comfortable levels without any hotspots or dead zones, all without disturbing the neighbors in the process.
Proven Paradigm Performance
We put the same care and dedication to quality sound into Garden Oasis Essentials as we do all our audio products. If you already enjoy Paradigm’s legendary sound indoors, this system takes it outside.
Everything You Need in One Box
Paradigm's legendary sound is easy to achieve outdoors with Paradigm’s Garden Oasis Essentials, an all-in-one package with 8 speakers and ground stakes, 1 in-ground subwoofer and 20 waterproof wire connectors for easy installation in outdoor spaces up to 3,000 square feet. All you need to add is speaker wire and amplification.
Performance Without Complexity
You won’t need special amplifiers to power Garden Oasis Essentials. If you already have a second zone-enabled AV receiver, then you have the necessary electronics. Of course, you can step up to a dedicated power amp for even better performance.
Garden Oasis Essentials is easy to install with stakes and speaker housings that assemble without tools. All that’s needed to finish the job is a shovel and a pair of wire strippers. Just add speaker cable.
The Neighbor-Friendly Music System
Our landscape system uses multiple speakers with a subwoofer that are placed out in the yard facing in towards the listeners. This not only lets the speakers blend in with the landscaping more effectively, but it provides more even coverage and reduces noise complaints since the system is more easily heard especially at lower volumes.
Reduced Edge Diffraction (RED™) Technology
Garden Oasis Essentials includes patented technologies like Reduced Edge Diffraction (RED) which provides cleaner and more powerful midrange sound thanks to a unique tweeter housing. With irregular edges and an off-center placement, you won’t have any of the standing wave artifacts that reduce performance in traditional designs. This, combined with the wide-dispersion design of the satellites, means you get more even coverage AND better clarity.
Plan a Scalable System
Garden Oasis speakers are scalable. Unlike many other systems, you can start with just a pair of satellites and a subwoofer, and expand the system as your needs change, or as your budget allows. Garden Oasis can fit any size space, large or small, for ultimate flexibility.
To fill in the bottom end, all our in-ground subwoofers use high-output, water resistant drivers inside a HDPE enclosure (the same material used for underground water systems) for worry free operation. These 8” (GO Essentials System), 10” (GO10SW) or 12” (GO12SW) subwoofers are designed to be discrete with only the “mushroom cap” hood visible. This hood not only evenly distributes the bass, but it keeps the driver protected from the elements and provides a constant flow of fresh air for worry free operation. Garden Oasis speakers carry an IP54 rating, and all Garden Oasis subwoofers carry an IP58 rating and have been successfully tested underwater and in environments from -20°F to 185°F.
Quick Connect System
Mount the speakers on the ground, on a deck rail, in a tree, or under an eave. The half-inch threaded “Quick Twist Cap” mount works universally with all three speaker mounts: Ground Stake, wire-protecting Inground Conduit Box, or Surface Mount for decks and walls. These mounting options give you the flexibility to “plant” these satellites anywhere to get the sound coverage you desire.
Reduced Edge Diffraction (RED™) Technology
Patent-pending RED Technology consists of a tweeter housing that significantly reduces the negative effects of diffraction, while improving critical midrange frequencies even in the expansive outdoor environment. Its irregular edges and off-center placement break up the performance-robbing standing waves typically generated by traditional woofer cone and tweeter housing designs.
Winter can be harsh, but we've got you covered...literally! Protect your speakers during the off-season with water-tight rubber covers.
Planning the System Layout
The Paradigm Garden Oasis Essentials Outdoor Music System is designed to deliver seamless, and evenly distributed sound coverage in an ‘open air’ environment. The illustration above shows how a daisy chain of satellite speakers and a subwoofer should be strategically placed to create even, balanced coverage around the outdoor environment. The satellite speakers should be spaced from 6 to 10 feet (2.4 - 3 meters) apart for optimal coverage. With a tighter spacing, more satellites will be required to fill out an area, but with the advantage of more consistent coverage and volume levels across the intended entertainment area.
To achieve the best balance between the satellites and subwoofer, the subwoofer should be placed as close to the center of the satellites as possible. Keep in mind that this is simply a suggestion and that your unique environment may dictate otherwise. If more bass is desired, placing the subwoofer near a wall or other solid surface will greatly reinforce the low bass frequencies.
Rotary Selector Switch
The rotary selector switch on the rear of each GO4 or GO6 speaker is easily accessed, allowing for quick conversion from 8-Ohm to 70/100V configurations.
