Summary: I purchased two of these units along with one TF-S10 subwoofer from the same manufacturer. Less than 3 months after installing the products the paint is already chipping off on the TFS-50. Note that the TFS-50 and TFS-10 appear to use the exact same paint. It has only rained one time and there are no sprinklers anywhere near the unit, so the paint is basically falling off without any provocation.
Summary: This is a superior speaker. Beware though, it is only one speaker. The interface with the speaker wire is a little funky though. It is designed to be an Omni speaker, handling both right and left channel. However the input for speaker wire does not accept a doubled wire. Very narrow. Probably only comfortably takes a 14 gauge wire. However, sound is exceptional. i have it paired with two stereo Yamaha speakers. Great enveloping sound.
Summary: This rock speaker unit is a nice addition to my existing setup. It is lacking crisp highs, but when paired with a Polk Atrium speaker they complement each other well. The Tic speaker makes up for the deep lows the Polk otherwise doesn’t reproduce well. Although this speaker unit is supposedly for outdoor use, I do have my doubts on how well and long it will hold up to the outdoor elements.
Summary: For an outdoor speaker they sound great. 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 provide very solid bass (but don't expect the type of bass you hear from a nearby car that's been outfitted with subwoofers and 1000 watt amps). They're just good solid speakers that sound very good and handle the weather.

Excerpt: Just wanted to drop you all a note to say how pleased I am with the Omni speakers. They sound wonderful!! I was worried about not being able to hear the music and would the speakers be strong enough. What a surprise! I ordered 4 speakers, 2 speakers fill my pool area and my neighbors yards with a great sound. BTW, the extra two speakers allow me to hear my music without blasting my neighbors (and we're on 3+ acre lots!). Many thanks for the excellent service.
Excerpt: Hi, I did receive the new speaker and it works great. Tic is the best outdoor speaker I have ever heard. I was even at a house this weekend that had the ____ outdoor system and I was not impressed. Any questions feel free to contact me.
