Good outdoor speaker

RickG, Crutchfield
25 August 2013
  • Summary: Speakers have good quality sound, seem to be constructed well.
  • Pros: Sound. Sold as a pair.
  • Cons: The drain hole on the bottom does not appear to be large enough as the speaker does get water inside after rain. There is nothing obstructing the drain hole as the speakers were placed over stone as recommended. Hoping this doesn't cause any problems.

Great outdoor speaker system

  • Summary: These are great speakers. Totally water proof and easy to install they offer very great sound for the money. Outdoor speakers often sound very flat, but these offer more dynamic range and good base response.

  • Summary: I got these and hooked them up in my back yard, they sound great! Even in the rain we now sit in the terrace to watch rain and enjoy music. The service was awsome, the package arrived on time.

High quality, good sound

milesm, Crutchfield

  • Summary: This is the second set of Free Space ® 51 speakers that I have purchased. I don't believe there is a comparable speaker on the market. The first pair has been in place for more than 4 years and perform just as well today as they did when I buried them. The sound produced is somewhat subdued which is both good and bad -- great for parties and relaxation. With their relatively compact size, they do not produce DEEP base well.

Bose free space 51

  • Summary: These are the nicest outdoor speakers available. The price is a little high, but are a much better choice than the 151s (which I also own). They claim they can be left outside in any weather conditions, but at $449 I can't bring myself to do it. If you are looking to create an outdoor entertainment area, these speakers are a must have. I highly recommend them.
  • Pros: Great sound, seem to be durable
  • Cons: price

  • Summary: I recommend purchasing these speakers, solely based on their sound... but hey, what's what speakers are supposed to do, right?
  • Pros: I don't know how Bose does it, but they do! Great sound!
  • Cons: If you can't hide them with plants, they stand out.
