Excerpt: Some outdoor speakers almost taunt bad weather, and the Mariner 52’s watertight design could make it a worthy scuba-diving buddy. The speaker wires feed through a sealed rear entry port to covered terminals up front, where there’s a polypropylene enclosure and perforated aluminum grill.
Pros: Flexible mounting options (horizontal, or on poles), and brackets that can be adjusted 180-degrees. Lifetime-warranty covers almost any weather-related damages. Small size and design make it easy to tuck away under eaves, or on a patio.
Cons: Design is subtle but dry-toast bland. The bass is tight, but thin, so hip hop and other heavy music can overwhelm.
