I used to have a pair of "rock" speakers hanging around the yard. I couldn't tell you how much I paid for them, but it wasn't much and I got what I paid for. They weathered away within a few years into what looks like rock-shaped multi-color foam-looking pieces that don't do anything but make the backyard look trashy. So I read around to a few places (like cnet, wired, poc and so on so on). There are a LOT of speakers out there. This time I decided to spend a lot more than I did before and get something. Poc had some things to say about the Bose when I read their review and thought to myself that these not only sound like they sound good (that sounded.repetitive lol), but they look abstract and I like that. I wound up picking up a pair and love them. I wound up designing a surround for my porch with glass panels in it every 1.5ft to give the yard a more artsy rich look. In the end these cost me a lot of money because they made me want to start working on things back here haha.
Pros: Loud, decent range, look nice and have some bass to them.
Cons: A little expensive, but they are boss after all.
