Summary: What a great sound! Put the out at the pool with the 14 G wire and used the TIC couplers to connect to the receiver. I had the 5" speakers and they just didn't carry the base as well. You will have to dig a pretty good size hole to get these installed correctly so be prepared. I installed the approx. 30 feet apart on each side of my pool, no regrets there...
Summary: Great speakers for outdoor use. MY house already had them when we purchased in 1994, and almsot 20 years later they finally gave out. Speakers were outside year round with no pyblems. I have them hooked to home stereo and they can really jam out very loud. Great product and will buy again in 20 years.
Summary: Just received shipment of a pair of these and installed them in the back yard. They are easy to install, hookup, and they sound great. Like them so well that I'm going to add a pair of the 5 inch models to enhance the sound.
Summary: I am not a audiophile. I do however like music. The sound from these speakers amaze me. I have speakers all around my home. Paradigm, Energy, Bose, Boston acoustics. These do not fall short. Very pleased.
