These speakers are perfect for the covered patio. Easy to install, can turn to direct sound up/down or side-to-side. I used these to replace larger box speakers and am very pleased.
These are not speaker that will put out sound levels that will blow cloths off, but if you want an affordable weather proof speaker that will add a little extra sound where it is needed then your search is over. I added these 200 watt-ers to my existing patio system and they sound great even when wet.
These are sturdy two way weather proof speakers. I now have four (4) of these speakers on my Patio. Since they are 4 OHM, I wired them in series in a crossfire (X) situation. I first hooked them up parallel to an inexpensive 100 watt reciever I bought to leave outside, I was unimpressed. The highs were tinny and midrange was weak bass was ok. Spaciail imagery was poor. After I rewired them they seemed to come alive, sound is clear across the spectrom. At low volume, the sound is clear and at high volume (which you can hear a block away) it is still clear with no hint of clipping. I listen to an oldies radio station (60's - 80's) and am now hearing notes in the music that I never heard before. The spacial imagery is now outstanding, the patio is 20' x 46' and there is about an 8' band across the patio where you are totally enveloped in sound. Just close your eyes and it sounds like the Band is right there. So far these speakers have been through two Texas coastal storms with 5 inches of rain and wind gusts to 60 mph, no problem, I did have to dry out the reciever though. Strong winds blew the rain horizontal and under the covered part of the patio where I thought the reciever was safe. Two of the speakers are attached to the eave of the house, the other two are fully exposed to the weather. The only con I have against these speakers is with the mounting bracket, it is to flimsy to hold the speakers in a horizontal position, they rotate down, these are heavy speakers. I wedged pieces of styrofoam between speaker and bracket to hold them in place. Problem solved
