Summary: I bought these to replace some very old exterior speakers; and over time speakers have gotten much better in structure and sound. These are attached to the outside of the house over our deck. They have only been installed for a short time so the long term durability has yet to be determined.
TIC Architectural speakers - a real hit on the deck and beyond !

Summary: As an audiophile and owner of some good gear in the house, I found these to be perfectly fine for outdoor use, great quality sound... I added a TIC Subwoofer (GS-50) to run with them. All powered by a new Sherwood receiver.
Excerpt: They are powerful, loud, handle long cable runs, and have great frequency response. They are heavy like all good speakers are. Best used with an outdoor sub woofer to deepen the sound. I have had mine on a houseboat for 3 - 4 years and they still sound like they did the day I installed them.
