Excerpt: Had to relocate a pair of these that I installed in 2004 or 2005, but they broke (my fault). The original set were left outside exposed to the elements year round and still sounded great. It was a no brainer to get the same speaker again. I was estatic to find that they were still making them 10 years later.
Great-Sounding Both for Personal Stereo and Community PA Use

10 March 2014
Summary: I was in charge of buying/supervising the installation of a better sound system for our very "live-sounding" (as in 'boomy') community room. 8 of these JBLs mounted on columns and walls made for a superb "blanket" of sound, especially since we have many older residents who are hard of hearing. Coupled to a high-end DIS conference mic system through a small Yamaha mixer and a DBX Eq and each of them having about 60w available for power, these little beauties sound great!
Summary: This is my second set of these. First ones have been semi-covered under an upper deck for 11 years and are still going strong. Sound is good for the application- not expecting to hear audiophile quality in my backyard. I power these on zone 2 of my yamaha receiver and they can get pretty loud before showing any distortion. I found the mounts easy to work with and adjust, although I haven't moved them much since I originally hung them.
Excerpt: I have had these in my garage for years now. I have them powered by a cheap Sony receiver and they still sound great. The bass they are capable of sounds very deep and rich. There have been many a nights in the shop with these baby's cranked up good and loud and they still sound clear. Would definitely recommend.
Summary: already had four JBL speakers and wanted to add to our outdoor entertainment. Have a classic jukebox and speakers are perfect for entire backyard music. Original speakers are approximately ten years old and sound and look as good as new...
Summary: I purchased the Amazon "Damaged packaging" product - JBL Northridge N24AWII 2-Way speakers. They sound is great. I moved my Yamaha 4 ohm outdoor speakers (see my other review) to the garage because I just purchased a new receiver which requires 8 ohm. Both JBL and Yamaha speakers perform great. Although there is some lack of bass, it works great for our patio deck area. The sound from these 4" speakers is crystal clear.
