Introduction

I admit, I've always been a little cynical about outdoor speakers. What better chance for a manufacturer to knick you a little extra for the ability to leave them out in the rain. Just walk into any big box store and you will see models of outdoor speakers from ho-hum manufacturers that command at least twice what their comparable indoor speakers cost. Hook them up and you will quickly find that serious corners were cut in regard to sound quality in order to "seal" them from the elements. That's the experience I took into this review, as I'd never experienced anything else.
