    Needing Some Speakers This Season?

    I bought a pair of Niles RS6Si Rock speakers when we built our pool a few years ago and I also have a Sonos Play 1 under the deck. Have all connected through my Sonos connect App. Have been very happy with the results and sound. Can't wait to open our pool next week!
