Our take on the Russound 5B65 by Crutchfield's Marshall Chase
The Russound OutBack indoor or outdoor speaker? Yes!
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.
I am very pleased with the sound quality and design of the product.

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 5B65 package includes 2 outdoor speakers (with integrated brackets), 2 grilles, 2 pair of end caps, and 2 bookshelf feet.
Woofer: The 5B65 speakers feature 6-1/2" injection-molded polypropylene woofers with rubber surrounds.
Tweeter: The 5B65s have 1" Teteron dome tweeters.
Terminals: Each speaker has a single pair of spring post terminals that can accept up to 12 gauge speaker wire. Russound recommends that you use 16 gauge speaker wire for runs up to 100 feet, 14 gauge up to 150 feet, and 12 gauge up to 200 feet.
Grilles: White painted aluminum grilles are included for each speaker. The grilles (as well as the mounting hardware) 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.

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 flat surface.
