Summary: These speakers "rock" I installed these under our deck where we have a finished patio with Jacuzzi. We have a small 20' strip of flowers there with mulch. After running my speaker wire (14gauge) to the speakers I pointed them into the center of the patio...one on the far left, one on the far right. These sound awesome with wonderful bass response even with the Jacuzzi running.
Pros: Cant go wrong with Klipsch. Buy them. They look real, not too heavy, and look great in any landscaped area. The speakers have just enough weight to keep them to the ground. Klipsch provides a landscape hold down steel peg with each speaker for added security to the ground.
Cons: I was timid in wanting to spend $300 per speaker... would have been nicer to purchase as a set for $300....but they are worth the money!!
Summary: These speaker sound awesome. The bass response is EXCELLENT for an outdoor speaker. They play loud and clean. So well in fact that I've already had a few conversations with the neighbors since I installed them. I only gave 4 stars instead of 5 since one of my speakers won't play in stereo. The others all work fine.
Summary: Purchased this speaker to replace a blown KLH rock speaker. Tried using one speaker since it can be hooked up to reproduce both channels. The treble and midrange are incredibly clear but I ended up ordering a second speaker to hear the separation of the two channels.
Pros: Great crystal clear highs and midrange
Cons: Bass is ok but not as good as the KLH that these replaced. Price is high considering they are made in China.
Summary: I have had these for two seasons now and they are wonderful. I was a little skeptical because of the price, but with the warranty and quality, they are perfect. The sound is very deep and rich. the sandstone color looks somewhat fake, but I have them on both sides of my patio (about 38ft apart) pointing to the center of my patio (think of a triangle), and because of their location I do not see them very much. So the color does not bother me.
Summary: Not only do the Rock Speakers look great in my newly landscaped yard, but the sound is truly amazing. I now have Klipsch throughout my house. I sent my Bose back. I am glad that there is finally an outdoor rock speaker worthy of praise.
