Summary: I purchased these speakers to use in our youth classroom at the church. We power them through a Pyle amplifier to boost the sound from Mp3 players and YouTube videos. It's a fairly large room (15'x25') and the speakers work flawlessly. We mounted them on the ceiling so that the sound didn't migrate into the room next door. I fully expected the bass to be weak but am pleasantly surprised at how good the response is.
Summary: The sound quality is fantastic. The mounting brackets are a little weak, but work well if mounted solidly. The speakers look good when installed. I'd suggest these to anyone wanting high quality outdoor speakers.
Nice speakers - but make sure you want them cause they are non-returnable

Summary: I got these speaker and thought...Whoa! This are pretty big. They produce a nice big sound, but overwhelmed my medium sized backyard (50'wx20'd). So I thought I would try the smaller 3.5 speakers and return these if the 3.5s worked out. The Pyle 3.5 sounded just as good as the indoor speakers, so I go to return these...and they are non-returnable. They sound really good, as good as any other speaker, a lot better than what I expected for $50.
Summary: The package arrived a bit battered, but the speakers appeared to be in good shape. In fact they could have been run over by a tank and still been in good shape, they are heavy. Connected them to my home system (Onkyo) in place of the main speakers, they sounded really good. Now I must figure out were to put them on my O'day 280, probably below decks in the cabin with long speaker wires so they can be put in the cockpit when desired.
Excerpt: These speakers are decent sounding for a home deck or surround but will not handle the claimed 100 - 500 watts. Maybe 50 watts tops. This isn't the first time I have seen Pyle speakers with a absurd power rating stamped on a under-powered speaker. I don't know why they do it.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Great Sound Quality
