Summary: Terrific speakers! I've had to turn them down since they can really fill up a backyard (and neighbor's backyard) with sound. Very crip with great bass response. Have them hooked up to a 2nd zone on a Yamaha Receiver and stream Pandora on that zone when outside at the pool.

Summary: Excellent speakers. The only reason I gave them a four star rating is I was hoping for a little more bass at a very low volume , which I probably won't get with any speaker on my deck. Still having said that they are awesome. I just turn up the bass more on my receiver.
Summary: Spent a bit of time researching and must admit I made the right choice. I set the AW5500 speakers up to break in on an old Sony receiver in my music room and was amazed at the sound. I really didn't expect the clarity and bass response and they crank if needed.
Summary: These speakers produce an offensive amount of sound - I'm sure my neighbors won't like them. Well built, heavy duty. and some def weight to them. Speakers face the woods and are mounted on exterior wall under soffet. Lots of bass.
Summary: After reading many reviews on the Def Tech 5500 speakers I pulled the trigger. I have them connected to a Sonos Connect AMP that sits in my family room. The wire run for one speaker is roughly 45' the other 30' (I used Audio Quest 14 gauge wire).
Pros: Quality of the build, sound clarity and range, ease of install, and looks...
Summary: I installed these on my screened in porch and they provide plenty of sound to fill my entire backyard. They are wired into my Denon AVR 2100 receiver using the second zone. Considering I do not have an outdoor sub, these speakers provide a good amount of bass and a clean sound.
