Russound asks, when you've got terrific speakers like the Acclaim 5 Series OutBack, why limit them? Sure, you can use these speakers in weather-stressed environments like your pool, patio or deck. But they also stand up perfectly to life's other challenges like tax-time in your home office, meal-time in your steamy kitchen, or downtime in your "man-cave." Sealed enclosures, salt-tested marine grade hardware, and aluminum grilles make them tough. Wall mounts and bookshelf feet are included to make them usable anywhere in your home. Flexible placement lets you mount this speaker horizontally, vertically, in corners, on poles, or standing upright.
Average Customer Review(s):
Horrible sound. I connected these speakers to a Sonos Z120 unit and the sound was worse than horrible. I am going to donate the speakers to the salvation army.
Pros: Nothing good
Cons: Horrible sound
These speakers came free with the purcahse of a SONOS ZP120. For free I won't complain, but if I was paying I wouldn't be too happy. They are not great at higher voumes and lack bass. I would have purchased Polk or Yamaha with my money and still may upgrade when the right deal comes along.
Pros: Good mounting hardware led to easy installation.
Cons: Sound quality is mediocre at best.
Not a bad deal for the price (well I got mine for free with a Sonos ZP120), Good for background music but can use a subwoofer for a deeper base. Distorts at high volume.

Design: The Russound Acclaim 5 Series OutBack outdoor speakers are designed and built to withstand the rigors of outdoor environment. They can be used in a wide range of temperatures, and are unaffected by extremes in humidity. This 5B45 package includes 2 outdoor speakers (with integrated brackets), 2 grilles, 2 pairs of end caps, and 2 bookshelf feet.
Woofer: The 5B45 speakers feature 4" injection-molded polypropylene woofers with rubber surrounds.
Tweeter: The 5B45s have 1" Teteron dome tweeters.
Terminals: The speakers have a single pair of spring post terminals that can accept up to 12 gauge speaker wire. It is recommended that you use 16 gauge speaker wire for runs up to 100 feet, 14 gauge for 50 to 150 feet, and 12 gauge for 100 to 200 feet.
Grilles: White painted aluminum grilles are included for each speaker. The grilles are corrosion-resistant to give you years of service in any kind of weather.
Painting: The speaker mounting bracket, enclosure, end caps, and grille can be painted to match your home's exterior if you desire. Care should be given to prevent getting paint on the terminals or drivers.
Installation Options: The 5B45 speakers can be installed horizontally or vertically using the provided mounting bracket. The speaker rotates on the bracket up to 45° left or right with 13 stop positions. The bracket has provisions for corner mounting or pole mounting (using U-bolts), as well. Each speaker comes with a bookshelf foot that attaches to one end of the speaker for installing the speaker vertically on a bookshelf.
