Excerpt: The speaker cone for the dual driver eventually degrades due to cheap materials , despite being in a sealed housing . Also,. the granite coating flakes off and reveals the plain housing after about a year . Needs to be better constructed to last more than a couple of years.
Summary: This is the third speaker of this model I have purchased. Nice sounding landscape style speaker especially for the price. This is not a high fidelity great sounding speaker and not meant to be. It sounds as good as any landscape / rock style speaker I have listened to. The Four Seasons resort is nearby and these speakers are as good or better than the ones they have.
Summary: For an outdoor speaker they sound very good. I've had some for a couple of years and they still work well. This purchase was to add another pair to cover more area. They're good solid speakers that sound very good and handle the weather. If you can handle a slightly larger size "rock", I'd recommend you consider the TIC TFS10's (which I also have in another part of the backyard). They sound a little better than the smaller TFS6's.
Summary: I purchased 4 of these speakers and 1 Tic tfs50 sub for my patio. I have them hooked up to a Speakercraft 8 ch amp and they sound great. Once my landscape is complete I may get a few more, I have a large backyard. These speakers are great.
Summary: Do you remember how much you used to spend on stereo equipment, especially speakers? I bought these speakers without listening to them, which is the number one no no when purchasing speakers. I figured if I did not like them I would simply return them. I was very surprised to see how nice these speakers sounded. Nice Lows, No distortion, and just a nice full sound. These are a great look as well. they sit on my pavers and match quite nicely.
