Outdoor speakers let you move the party outside
Outdoor speakers are built tough -- they laugh at wind, rain and weather. Tuck a pair under your eaves and they'll pump out the tunes to keep everybody smiling and swaying at your next cookout or pool party. We also have some "rock" speakers that blend seamlessly into your landscaped lawn or garden.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Purchased these speakers as a Christmas gift for my daughter to replace defunct speakers on her deck. I just installed this weekend. Had to replace old wires with 16 ga. since the old were not sufficiently sized. After connecting, the speakers sounded very good to my ears. My daughter thought they were a much better improvement in sound then the old ones that died. I'm sure increasing the wire size was a big help. Wire run was about 35 feet.
Pros: Excellent packaging and prompt service and delivery from Crutchfield. The speakers seem to be very well made. Sturdy brackets and excellent directions. Easy to install .Wire connection posts were simple and the easiest connectionsI have seen.
