Summary: These were the only 3 way speakers available in this price range. TIC seems to have a good reputation, so I bought them. Seem to be pretty well made and they sound descent. Time will tell how good they are. Our last patio speakers lasted over 15 years, hopefully these will too.
Summary: Great little speakers. Easy install. Mounted mine under the eves of my shed. The sound will carry over 300 ft and still sounds clear. If you stand right under them they sound a little tinny, but other than that an excellent addition to any back yard
