Radiance is an innovative bollard speaker type that delivers 360-degrees of sound.

They also have adjustable power settings for different size set-ups and sound quality, which we can discuss during our complimentary walk through.

Helping you configure Your Radiance System

Here are streamlined guidelines to optimize both lighting and audio setups:


Lighting Strategies:

Pathway Lighting:

  • Place lights 6 to 10 feet apart for continuous, even illumination.

  • Ambient/Accent Lighting:

  • Adjust the spacing between 10 to 15 feet based on desired aesthetic and garden features.

Security Lighting:

  • For areas like entryways, use a tighter spacing of 5-6 feet to ensure no dark spots.


Audio Setup:

Speaker Placement:

  • Position speakers about 12 to 15 feet apart to achieve a uniform sound field that overlaps slightly, ensuring consistent coverage and great sound.

This approach ensures your outdoor areas are effectively lit and sonically enriched, providing a perfect setting for any occasion.
