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.

Summary: Simply put, these speakers are amazing. I wanted new outdoor speakers for my 30x18 patio and BBQ station area (last summer scrapped my gas grill for a kettle charcoal grill and love grilling outdoors more than ever). I was replacing a pair of workhorse Infinity Outrigger Jr. speakers that served me well for 18 years, and still sound as good as the day I first installed them.
Summary: I bought these for outdoor speakers for my patio area. They sound and work great. They can get quite loud. I hooked them up to a sonos amp so I can control it from my phone. Extremely satisfied.
