Spring and summer months mean warm and beautiful weather, relaxing on the patio, and enjoying nature. It also means the start of baseball season! You don’t have to sacrifice the weather or our beloved Cardinals, just bring the indoors-outdoor with an outdoor television. SunBrite TV’s are the only time-tested TVs in the world that are designed and built for permanent outdoor installation. They are completely weatherproof with superior brightness. Their durable screens can endure temperatures as hot as 122 degrees and as cold as -24 degrees Fahrenheit, allowing you to leave your television outside all year long!

We understand it can be a lot of work setting up an outdoor living area, but SunBrite and The Sound Room created a product to help ease the process. The SunBrite TV Wireless HD Transceiver can send full 1080p HD content wirelessly to televisions. That’s right, no cables! As long as your outdoor television is within 150 feet, you’ll be watching HDTV in no time.

One of our favorite parts of the spring and summer months are backyard BBQ’s. There’s nothing better than spending time with those you love, cold drink in your hand, and enjoying some delicious food while listening to some great music. We have a complete line of Sonance outdoor speakers that deliver crystal clear sound with a rustic design that allows them to blend into your outdoor space. Now you can listen to the game on KMOX or enjoy your favorite tunes outdoors.
