Summary: Ive owned many types of speakers and these are by far the nicest speakers I have ever owned in my life. The sound they generate is amazing and will surely not let you down. Perfect for outdoors!
Summary: Great little speakers. Awesome sound. Ample bass response due to large rear-mounted passive radiator. No need for subwoofer with these speakers. Easy to mount. Adjustable directional brackets. I bring them inside during the colder months and use them as satellite speakers for my home theater system.
Summary: We recently bought two sets of outdoor speakers (Bose Fee Space 51 and Definitive AW 6500) and connected them to a Sonos wireless system (using the Connect: AMP). We like both sets of speakers but the sound is crisper from the Definitives. Bose as always does a good job delivering bass and the in ground form factor fits that space very well - but several people who have listened to both speakers prefer the sound from the Definitives.
If you're debating between 5500 and 6500, definitely go bigger!

Summary: Sounds great! Very clear with adequate mid range bass response. Don't expect these to be very full outside in a large area, though. I had them hooked up inside for testing and break-in prior to installing outside, and they sounds AMAZING inside. Definitely made me want better speakers for my home audio/theater system as well.
Summary: i had another brand of exterior speakers before, but the sound was really nothing compare to this. totally worth the price, the look is also very chique to combine with my pool and external area.(where we entertain a lot) nothing bad so far! and i have these installed for 6months already! at least no more complaint from my husband for bad sound when he plays the music loud.
