Sound was amazing but the Mounting hardware was all messed up

Summary: Sound was amazing but the Mounting hardware was all messed up. The threaded inserts on the speaker housing were rotating in the housing. Couldn't get it tight enough. Was returned about bought new ones at Best Buy.

Summary: Not the PYLE I remember. These are horrible. The mounting brackets are pathetic strips of some metal, the thumbscrews that attach the bracket to the speaker stripped with no effort at all. The sound quality is terrible as well. NO low end at all. I even tried using an EQ to boost the low end, but the result was far from usable. All mid-range, no highs.
Currently they are working fine and the sound is good

Summary: I have only had the speakers mounted outside for a few days. Currently they are working fine and the sound is good. I did experince some problems with the mounting hardware. The receiving threads for the "knob" screws that hold the bracket on are not deep enough (or the knob screws are too long) so the bracktet cannot be tightened enough to hold the speaker firmly. The speaker is loose and "spins" while mounted to the bracket.
Summary: Speakers are OK for the price. However be careful when screwing in the brackets to the speaker the brass looking inserts come loose with very little pressure and then you can't get the captive screw back out or tighten up to keep the speaker in place.
Summary: These speakers are adequate for the money in terms of their performance, BUT there is a design/manufacturing defect. The threaded knobs used to secure the speakers to the mounts have threaded rods which are too long for the nutserts in the speakers. This prevents the user from adequately tightening the knobs to keep the speakers in place.
