Summary: I was able to fire these babies up for the first time the other day - after I got my iPod docking station hooked up. The sound is clear and crisp. Installation was easy and foolproof. They're waterproof and are mounted outside near my pool - under roof eaves to give them some protection from the sun and weather. Very professional looking. I love the sound.

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.
Summary: I went to mount them, but the knob screw stripped right away. wasn't able to mount them. Brackets are not strong enough anyway. Tried to return, but couldn't. (hazardous material) They weren't "hazardous" when they were sent to me. Gave them away, and bought Bose 151's. They're great, but I I'll never buy Pyle again. These speakers belong in the Dollar Store. You get what you pay for, and I paid for a "Pyle" of junk.
It really is a "pyle" - spend a few extra dollars and save yourself the trouble

Summary: I was looking for some low-cost speakers to mount in the storage area of our RV for playing music outside under the awning. We are not after studio-quality sound so a budget option was on the menu. The larger woofer on these got my attention and so I purchased. I will say for the price, the sound is actually pretty good. Nice low-end, crisp highs, and all-around decent tone. The problem is the mounts. Both speakers are now unmountable due to cheap hardware and anchors.
