Climate Garden System (CLG) Speakers Blend Big Sound with the Great Outdoors

Discreet all-weather satellite/subwoofer design brings natural full-range audio to gardens of any size. Designed for excellent concealment in any garden landscape, the Climate Garden System will transfer our award-winning hi-fi audio quality from home to garden, providing music lovers with the lifestyle experience of big, wide, detailed sound in the great outdoors.

Its super-discreet all-weather satellite/subwoofer design has been beautifully and expertly engineered by Monitor Audio for ground level installation amongst shrubs and trees to deliver a luxury blend of unobtrusive aesthetics and natural full-range audio in gardens of any size. The system comprises the Climate CLG140 and CLG160 satellite speakers and the CLG-W12 subwoofer. With up to twelve satellites in each line arrays per subwoofer, the system is expandable with additional satellite and subwoofer sets according to garden area.

The luxury of discreet sound with flexible design

The Climate Garden System extends the reach of our innovative award-winning hi-fi sound and technology from the home to every part of the garden. Its luxury, high performance satellite/subwoofer design delivers a scalable, flexible and super-stealthy way to enhance garden spaces of any size with naturally pulsating audio.

High quality from the ground up

The satellite speakers are a robust high sensitivity design built to deliver richly detailed hi-fi quality mid/high frequencies. Engineered to withstand the most extreme temperatures and weather conditions, their rigid conical cast-polymer enclosure houses the company’s signature 1” (25 mm) C-CAM Gold Dome tweeter co-axially aligned with a 4” MMP (CLG140) or 6” MMP (CLG160) bass-mid driver.

The horn-shaped housing provides excellent audio directivity in free air conditions when positioned close to the garden surface on a bracket/spike assembly, which neatly encapsulates and channels the connecting cable into the ground for a discreetly installed result. Alternatively it’s possible to mount the satellite speakers on a tree, pole, wall or fence. Supplied in a durable dark brown finish for excellent coordination with garden colours, the satellite speakers casing can be painted to blend with any environment.

Subterranean Bass

Completing the full-range frequency response of the Climate Garden system is the CLG-W12 passive subwoofer. Optimised for discreet sub-surface installation, its proprietary Monitor Audio bandpass design incorporates an internally loaded 12” C-CAM driver which sits in a waterproof rotationally-moulded polymer enclosure buried below the garden surface – only the CLG-W12’s domed output port is visible. From this domed port powerfully taut bass frequencies will join the clean mids and highs of the surrounding satellite speakers for punchy and articulate full-range garden sound.

Easy daisy-chain installation

The CLG-W12 can be powered from a single amplifier channel at 4 ohms, with its 70/100 V line option recommended for cable runs over 10 m (30 ft) and for adding subwoofers to the system. In this line configuration, the satellites speakers are daisy-chained to the CLG-W12, one after the other, up to a recommended maximum of twelve per subwoofer. System expansion to larger garden spaces simply involves the addition of amplifier channels, subwoofers and satellites.

In the simplest designs, satellite speakers are connected in a mono configuration to one amplifier channel, the other channel powering the subwoofer. The use of a stereo power amplifier with 70/100 V line capability and crossover features will allow the adjustment of levels between bass and mid-high range. Alternatively, the system can be designed to provide stereo operation by adding elements to create left/right zones.

When installed the Climate Garden System delivers a smooth, wide-open and controlled frequency response from 30 Hz to 30 kHz in the targeted environment: better than many home audio systems! For patio or deck applications, the CLG-W12 will install within a planter box to enhance Monitor Audio’s CLG Series all-weather cabinet speakers with deep bass frequencies, giving custom installers additional design options.
