Excerpt: I mounted these under my porch at my shop. They were easy to mount and sound good. I have an old 70's high powered receiver with a pair of big Sansui's inside. These speakers fill in good for getting sound to my back yard without rattling the neighbors windows with the Sansui's.
Pros: Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: I had another pair of outdoor Yamaha speakers on my deck. I added another pair to an area to really complete the sound. The other pair of Yamaha speakers I've had for two years and have loved them.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: I purchased these outdoor speakers & was pleasantly surprised. The only thing was that the grills are coming off & the installation was a little difficult because their for out door no for indoor use. The brackets that where provided are more for indoor use. Had to go purchase additional hardware at a local hardware store.
Pros: Attractive Design, Good Power Output, Great Appearance, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I have had two pairs of these speakers outside for 6 years. One pair on the deck under an over hang the other mounted to the house on the patio exposed to all elements with no shelter. This pair takes direct sunlight over the summer from about 1pm until sunset. They are hooked to a Lyri-Q whole house audio system and sound terrific. I believe they would sound even better if they were attached to a system that could output more power and push them harder.
Excerpt: Mounted this under the eaves outside over our deck, sounds great...if you're looking for super audiophile quality or high bass response, these probably aren't your deal - but they were larger and nicer-sounding than expected and I'm very happy with them.
Pros: Attractive Design, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Somewhat hollow metallic sound from the speaker. This is not the speaker you want if you are looking for disco quality sound. It works fine for the back yard patio and it plenty clear enough to understand, but it just isn't a very high quality sound.
