After about 24 hours of play time they start to sound wonderful. They're a great speaker

Summary: They have survived two New England Winters outside. Be aware that they take some time to break in (in order to get optimum sound). I'm guessing this is due to the different materials used to make this an outside speaker (the cone/woofer in particular).
Summary: I tried many outdoor speakers. I ended up with a pair for $99 that are way better. These had a weird hum/sensitivity and the one cabinet had a mounting issue and I could hear some movement from the woofer when it was pushed.
Good sound, but the new ones are already showing ...

Summary: I have two pairs now under the eaves of a beach house, 100 yds from the Gulf of Mexico. Good sound, but the new ones are already showing signs of rust on the grilles, and it's not even a month. The first pair are still sounding good but look terrible after about 18 months.
Summary: Very good outdoor speakers, but not full sound. I don't know that any smallish outdoor speaker will truly satisfy me but these are about as good as any. And for the size and price, they are fine.
Summary: A little expensive, but so far very worth the price.. The whole family loves them, I bought them because of the good rating and since they work great and I have had no problems I am very happy with them.
Summary: These replaced AR outdoor speakers on our pool house. These Klipsch were on sale and do have pretty good bass for such small units as I have them mounted beneath the pool house gutters, not near the ground.
