Summary: I originally purchased a whole surround sound system manufactured by Audiosource. At the time, the whole thing, including a powered sub-woofer, was only a hundred bucks! That was five years ago. In my overzealousness one night playing a Stevie Ray Vaughn DVD, I blew one of the original satellite speakers. I was delighted to to find they still made these units, and purchased another pair. I LOVE these units, you just cannot beat the sound and quality for the price!
Summary: While most cars have places to put speakers, vans and VW busses don't. Outdoor speakers allow you to hang the speaker on the walls or in the corners. You can hear the stereo better because the speakers are above the cargo or seats and you can use less wattage to drive them. I have two complaints: 1. They come with plastic brackets that break going down the road.
Summary: I resently installed these speakers on the outside of my house (backyard). I was amazed at the quality of sound that came out of such inexpensive speakers. I recommend these speakers to anyone who wants a good source of background music for their outdoor activities.
Summary: I haven't had my Audio Source speakers that long but so far they have been great! I paid about $40.00 for the pair to put up outside our pool and deck area. They have brackets that you can mount to the side of your house and they hold great. It did come with some screws that I have no idea what they go to but we really didn't need them anyway.
Summary: Pros: Lightweight, easy to install with brackets included, and a GOOD price-performance relation. Considering the limitations of the drivers and the housing etc, it is a good deal. The mid-range and high-range definition is pretty good. Cons: Just slightly overstepping that what the bass driver can handle, and it will sound really ugly. When we reach that point, the speaker is hardly handling 18W RMS power. In other words: The speaker is overrated being called 100W.
Summary: Can't compare to Bose 151 but for the money it's a good speaker for the deck. I upgraded to the Bose but didn't really need to. I just wanted the best for my backyard to enjoy my Sirius radio by the pool and spa. And Bose IS the best.
Summary: I am really impressed with the quality of sound. The highs and mids are really strong and carry well. The lows are subdued, but still there. The bass response is not great, but these are about 5" speakers pushing the sound too. These are some awsome speakers for the price. I am very happy with them.
Summary: I hooked these up to my Dennon flame thrower to an outside B channel. The sound is as good as you'll get at any cost. I'm still cautious about decibels though, I just figure there easy to blow. But did go happy boy a few times and they still sound great. I always push my speakers before the warranty's up.
