    Worth the money!

    This thing is amazing. Really easy to install besides digging the giant hole to put it in. I’m pushing it with a QSC CMX800Va In bridge mode. Also have 10 garden speakers in the system and no hiccups. The sub sounds amazing and carries very well throughout the garden it’s in.

    Amazing speaker system

    This brand is the best outdoor sound you will find. I have it installed in such a way that my whole pool area is emersed in sound. No matter where you walk there is seamless transition. Your sound track no longer needs to be super loud because of the coverage.

    Outstanding Backyard Audio

    Absolutely outstanding backyard audio. Time consuming but easy to install, and the results exceeded expectations. The best part is that you can have low volume throughout your backyard area - no need to blast the speakers on one end of the yard so that the other side can hear it. Highly recommend.

    Incredible outdoor sound system!

    After a lot of studying, I purchased the Sonance Garden Series system for the audio portion of my outdoor renovation project. I have been thrilled beyond belief with my choice.

    We use this system around our pool/deck area. It is fantastic. With the distributed 8 speaker system you get a wonderful blanket of sound/music. When you have a social event, this means that people can have conversations through out the space while having a nice blanket of music surrounding them that doesn't disturb them as you don't have one area of loud music where central speakers are located.

    With this system, you also can have a nice level of music without disturbing the neighbors. By positioning the 8 speakers around the periphery of your yard/garden and aiming them back toward your outdoor entertainment area (away from neighbors), you get wonderful coverage and sound that is not amplified at your neighbors. It is incredible!

    As for installation, it is work but it's also what was expected. You have to run the speaker wire for the two channels (R+L) around the area you are installing the speakers and you have to dig a rather large hole to install the sub (which works wonders). The instructions provided are very good.

    I really can't say enough about the audio performance of the system. The audio performance is very impressive. Since putting this around the pool area, I was so taken with it, I have added in a MAG 4.1 system in the courtyard . As I am driving the pool area Sonance Garden system off of Sonos Port for streaming music, this creates a multi-zone system controlled by Sonos and driven by Sonance speakers.

    Vacation without the aggravation.

    What is more relaxing and convenient than having a pool in the back yard? Having a great sound system playing your favorite tunes throughout the day and evening with just a touch of your cell phone. Thank you Best Buy and Geek Squad for helping us transform our backyard into our favorite vacation spot.

    Sonance rips

    This system sounds fantastic around my pool. I have my sonos system providing the music through the Sonance amp. The sub woofer provides solid bass and the eight distributed speakers fill the large area with evenly distributed sound. Believe me when I say this system sounds great from low to high volume.

    I am a promoter and all my friends are asking what is this system. Totally worth a listen if you are looking for a really nice looking and sounding system.

    Excellent Quality

    Just installed the SGS 8.1 series system in my pool area. Being someone who is very critical of sound systems, I am unbelievably happy with this system. It fills my yard with sound to include incredible bass response from the buried subwoofer. It integrated seamlessly with my Sonos system which is a pleasure to manage. If you’re looking for a solid outdoor sound system, look no further. The Magnolia team who did the install was great to work with as well, communication was great, and project was completed as promised.

    Larger than life sound....and size

    Setting up an outdoor Sonance system, I was excited to get a subwoofer for fullness. When it was delivered, I gasped at the large size of the sub. I was about ready to send it back because of the size factor.

    Instead, I had everything installed and was blown away by the overall sound quality. This large sub is integral to making the system work.

    Following installation, I realized that this could be buried about halfway, which makes a difference. It doesn’t overwhelm the landscape as it does out of the box.

    I would buy it again.

    ML Outdoor Living Outstanding

    Martin Logan never fails to impress. I was torn on continuing my ML family into my outdoor space or considering another manufacture at about half the price. After countless hours of research I decided to go with the ML outdoor living series and I couldn't be happier. The adjustable satellite speakers are larger than expected but by no means off putting in their size. The ability to adjust for 8ohm (better quality less speakers) or 70w and 100w (lots of speakers to cover more space) is a very nice feature if you plan to scale your outdoor space. If you are considering an outdoor system there is no question that the ML Outdoor Living is a high quality and scalable system that will meet or exceed your expectations.

    ML customer service is outstanding as well. Within a day I had a response to my questions and we continued a conversation until I had every detail ironed out.

    Bottom line, if you are considering these speakers go with the entire system which includes a ML profiled Crown amp that has prebuilt EQs for multiple types of speaker deployments.

    Couldn't be happier

    Summer Jamming

    I’ve tried many outdoor rated speakers for my lake home; Definitive Tach, B&W and now these Martin Logans. The DefTech and B&W have a deeper sound capacity and is noticeable to anyone listening. However, the Martin Logan speakers have a much clearer sound - very crisp. They are also very versatile with setup. I went with each of them at a traditional 8ohms rather than daisy chaining. I would recommend these to anyone wanting a clean sound for their outdoor space.

    If you are looking outdoor speakers that have a clear and crisp sound with 7.5" woofer. Don't look anywhere else.

    ML Outdoor Living Outstanding

    Martin Logan never fails to impress. I was torn on continuing my ML family into my outdoor space or considering another manufacture at about half the price. After countless hours of research I decided to go with the ML outdoor living series and I couldn't be happier. The adjustable satellite speakers are larger than expected but by no means off putting in their size. The ability to adjust for 8ohm (better quality less speakers) or 70w and 100w (lots of speakers to cover more space) is a very nice feature if you plan to scale your outdoor space. If you are considering an outdoor system there is no question that the ML Outdoor Living is a high quality and scalable system that will meet or exceed your expectations.

    ML customer service is outstanding as well. Within a day I had a response to my questions and we continued a conversation until I had every detail ironed out.

    Bottom line, if you are considering these speakers go with the entire system which includes a ML profiled Crown amp that has prebuilt EQs for multiple types of speaker deployments.

    Summer Jamming

    I’ve tried many outdoor rated speakers for my lake home; Definitive Tach, B&W and now these Martin Logans. The DefTech and B&W have a deeper sound capacity and is noticeable to anyone listening. However, the Martin Logan speakers have a much clearer sound - very crisp. They are also very versatile with setup. I went with each of them at a traditional 8ohms rather than daisy chaining. I would recommend these to anyone wanting a clean sound for their outdoor space.

    Worth the extra money

    Having tried Speakercraft Boomtomb and the Niles garden subwoofer, I can claim to be an expert on garden subwoofer as I had to replace each of those units twice and even that wasn't enough. For those brands, even though they rate them as 500W capacity, they most certainly are not able to reach even half the stated capacity.

    With this Martin-Logan, I was careful to inspect the unit thoroughly and I was very surprised at some of the things I saw. Instead of a flimsy plastic structure that is used to mount most of these subwoofers, the ML used a one inch thick hollowed out round ring structure that provides a completely stable mounting super structure.

    Why is this important? One of the chief downfalls of outdoor subwoofers is that the mounting structures themselves are sufficient to keep distortion levels down so many times the bass you are hearing includes the actual vibration occurring within the shell itself. That means that your frequencies are going to be dampened or distorted by these vibrations. It's part of the reason that advertising that you're making the ground move is actually a horrible gimmick.

    The idea behind the in-ground sub woofer is to force as much sound up through the outlet rather than allowing the frequencies to pound on the container. Although, the aluminum mounting structure doesn't eliminate these issues completely, it does do it enough to actually matter.

    The second aspect that ML has over most of the competition is that most of them for some reason have set up their sound paths to involve some sort of deflection. In other words the sound you are hearing is actually the sound as it bounces off a deflection board so that the sound you are getting is actually after it has been dampened by some obstruction.

    For the ML, again getting back to the mounting method, the speaker actually is pointed right straight at the exiting tube. This means that even through you are still have the potential of some dampening of the upper part of the box, most of the sound is traveling right directly through the exit tube.

    Third, the exit tube's length is minimal, meaning that there is less travel time for the sound to exit which in turn means cleaner and clearer sound. The tube itself is topped off with a mushroom-shaped top. The topper is not cheap plastic either; it is actually a weather-resistant painted metal top meaning it could very well have been heat dried for longevity.

    As for the box itself, it too is minimal, allowing just enough room to fit the aluminum mounting super structure with only a few inches of clearance to the top. This is another thoughtful design that emphasizes the priority of getting the sound out quickly and cleanly.

    As for the actual box itself, it isn't cheap PVC or the like but rather feels like a composite almost. Whatever the process, this is no cheap plastic container but rather a very rigid container.

    But what about the sound? Currently, I recommend 100 hours of low to medium volume. Do not crank it up until the break-in period is complete. After 50-60 hours I did test at higher volumes for brief periods of time. I have to say, the sound quality is actually quite good with little or no distortion. The true test of any sub woofer is Pink Floyd's "Us and Them" and this unit performed wonderfully.

    I am running it off a Niles amplifier rated to 100W in bridge mono mode because this is an entirely passive sub woofer which I would recommend.and the sub is rated to 800 meaning that there should be little chance of incident with those margins but even then the other brands cannot handle what this unit can

    So you have a choice, Speakercraft for 600 or so, Niles for 800 and have them blow up or you can save your money for the Martin Logan. If you are serious about outdoor sound then the ML is the only way to go.

    Great for single position speaker

    It isn't the best speaker in the world, but one of these is enough for my patio area of about 400 square feet. I paired it with the TIC passive subwoofer to add some depth. Would recommend the sub. Only negative is that Best Buy was having a sale on the other color and wouldn't give me the sale price for this. The slate color is darker that my bluestone patio, and the lighter granite would have equally matched.

    Sonance - Outdoor Streaming Music System Powered By Sonos

    Our days of schlepping our assortment of bluetooth speakers out to the back deck are over. In fact, after an afternoon listening to these as I prepare to mount them on my back deck, I wondered what took me so long to explore the Sonos systems. This Sonance/Sonos speaker is an environmentally impervious solution that sounds really good. It’s really really good. It visually disappears into our outdoor architecture. (Unless you take advantage of the ability to paint them, which I’m about to do …. brilliantly.) It’s easy to understand how the Sonos-based whole-house systems have gained so much popularity. Sonance’s speakers surprised me with their ability to fill an outdoor space with rich, broad range music and dialog. As you can see from my photos, I’ve decided to make my speakers portable, while still taking advantage of their outdoor features. I created my own stands, so I move my speakers from the TV area, to the BBQ area, to my spa area. The best of all worlds.

    WHAT IS THIS? A simplified outdoor audio system including …

    The SONANCE speakers (2 in this kit) requiring wires connected to the AMP. Put’em where you want’em. This is very low voltage wiring so moisture is not an issue. The speakers are NOT wireless, not Bluetooth, not Wi-Fi. The speakers are IP-66 waterproof rated and conform to Mil Spec 810 for humidity, salt spray, temperature and UV.

    The Sonos amp only needs a power outlet and those wires to the speaker. The amp needs more care in its placement, tucked away from water, but it looks pretty rugged. I’ve got mine near my outdoor TV. The amp cannot send audio wirelessly to the speakers.

    SETUP is centered around the SONOS AMP with its WiFi, etc connectivity. The specifications describe 125watts for each of 2 channels (requires speaker cable, not included). The primary source of music is a lengthy list of streaming providers (TIDAL Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, etc) as well as any music I have on my Mac Music App, made available on the home Wi-Fi. The AMP’s 2 speaker connectors conceal the fact that you can double up wiring and easily power 2 pairs of speakers. [There is some commentary on the Sonos forums suggesting a 3rd pair right be added. Talk to Sonus support before you try this.] [About Sonos support: They are great. I needed them for an issue I had setting up the AMP. The CHAT queue was a 5 minute wait, and they took all the time needed to resolve my issue. Patient, knowledgeable, competent. ]

    The Sonos Amp will connect to Wi-Fi, ethernet (in/out), HDMI ARC for TV, a subwoofer output for a speaker you might own (or buy), right and left speaker outputs which are ready for banana plugs. A traditional RCA audio input allows for a turntable or CD player input.

    The stereo channels are an expected feature, but there is also a Mono mode, letting you over-ride the stereo signal coming into the amp in those situations where your speakers aren’t distributed in an ideal physical configuration. In my setup I wanted to distribute sound from the TV to a sitting area or maybe music to the spa area. Which brings us to ……

    MONO Mode (and why you care): In a typical family room or even bedroom you will create a “stage” where you’ll center your TV and music media. The recording helps create the stage illusion using either stereo or fully surround tracks. But what happens on your patio or around your pool or spa? Sure, you might be able to recreate a stage, but I’d bet, just as often, you’d prioritize reaching areas with sound, often with a single speaker. The ability to merge stereo tracks into a MONO signal ensures that everyone hears the entire performance, and not just the performers on one side of the stage. So, in my situation, I can mount one speaker closer to the TV and another closer to the spa, and merge the stereo signals. I can see I’ll be adding another pair of speakers for each area, but I won’t need another amp.

    HDMI ARC for TV: I have a patio TV for those times when I don’t want to miss a broadcast game while I’m getting some fresh air or time in the spa. Modern TV’s have only OK sound from they built-in speakers, and they definitely struggle in an open-air setting. I can’t imagine anyone daring to install home audio equipment outside. SONOS’s versatile Amp has this totally covered, providing a link to your TV audio output and managing to deliver that sound around your outside living space. The MONO mode is especially useful, again.

    OPERATION and SOUND:

    The APP (see pictures for sample App pages)

    The SONOS App manages to be comprehensive, controlling a complex system of any Sonos or attached speakers you might have, while also managing your array of media sources and a broad collection of media. I spend most of time switching between Pandora’s various “stations” I personally set up for me, or my music library on my laptop computer and all my playlists, or my the TV that’s attached to the AMP by an HDMI cable. It’s all very easy. It all adds to a feeling that you’re in control of the technology and not trapped in it.

    How it sounds

    I love to be wowed by audio/video equipment, and the Sonance/Sonos system I’m reviewing certainly surprised me. Delivering a nice music experience or satisfying sound for outdoor living spaces is not easy. It’s not just about the weather. There are typically no walls or even ceilings to reflect back sound and the “floor” may also be very sound absorbing dirt or grass. The Sonance Speakers do a wonderful job working in the wide open area of my deck area and they easily distribute the TV sound across the entire living space. Sonance has built in a reasonable amount of bass reinforcement, which are the tones most likely to get lost in an open area. The resulting sound is very well balanced. But, it’s also rich and “big”, having no trouble filling a larger area.

    SUMMARY:

    Bringing audio outdoors is a feat few companies have mastered. Accomplishing this in a way that builds seamlessly off of your whole house, indoor-centered, system is an even bigger accomplishment. Sonance powered by SONOS has earned its place as a premier outdoor music solution. It sounds great. It is pretty flexible in how and where you mount it, but you need to be aware of where the wires are installed. You can add it to a pre-existing Sonos system with no effort at all, connecting it to all of your current media sources. Or, start with this outdoor system and you’ll see how easy it is to bring it all inside. It’s not inexpensive, but who else is doing all of this so nicely? Recommended.

    Excellent permanent outdoor streaming system

    I finally installed an outdoor speaker system in my backyard. Whenever I had a patio event or screen projection outdoor movies, it was some inconvenience using portable speakers and especially putting them away before the blood-sucking mosquitos come out. This system is a great idea for a permanent outdoor entertainment solution rather than many portable outdoor speakers. A dedicated setup will allow a better listening experience.

    This Sonos Amp is a smart amplifier that powers passive speakers (indoor/outdoor), transmitting an impressive 125 watts of power per channel. The speakers are loud and deliver a pristine sound. The casing is made of hard solid glass fiber, and its mounting brackets are solid metal (probably aluminum), both of which have a good coat of matte white eggshell color. The texture feels a bit like a smooth eggshell, and I believe this is so one can paint over them (prime surface).

    What makes this smart is the wireless streaming from a huge selection of music streaming services, such as Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, and lots more. Note that the Bluetooth capability is just for the Sonos app; you can’t stream directly from a streaming music service app. Basically, you allow the Sonos app access to your streaming service, and you only use the Sonos app for the Amp system. The exception to this is If you have an Apple device, you can stream straight to the Amp via Airplay. Overall, the steaming of music works perfectly.

    Compared to traditional amplifiers, this system doesn’t take a lot of space and uses the least amount of wires. The front of the Amp has the basic touch buttons, play/pause, and volume control. This minimalistic look allows the placement of the amplifier in any room in the house. The back of the system is the main power cord connection, two speaker terminals (set includes banana plugs for simplified and neat connection), an RCA line (optional connection of a turntable, a CD player, or any other audio component), a line-out for a subwoofer (not included), and an HDMI ARC for TV. I use the HDMI connection to watch a movie when I have an outdoor movie projection. If you want to use a 3.5 mm stereo female AUX, use a 2-RCA male adapter and connect it to the RCA line in the Amp.

    The connection cables allowed are up to 14-gauge (not included). The outdoor speaker connects using the wires to the Sonos Amp, which must be placed indoors. For best performance, I mounted my speakers at ear levels. With the impressive 125 watts of power per channel, I am sure you can connect two and maybe three speakers per channel.

    Conclusion: Properly installed, the speakers and the Amp will give you many years of outdoor entertainment. One of the biggest benefits of having a separate amplifier and speaker system is the capability to upgrade any of them in the future. But, rest assured that the Sonance system will provide many years of entertainment pleasure. This system is truly a perfect outdoor entertainment; it is all-weather resistance, loud and delivers pristine sound all the time, and looks very nice.

    Brilliant All Weather System for Outdoors or Home

    First impression can be summed up in one word, Wow. The speakers are artfully designed, they look fantastic, and you can see immediately that there are serious engineering and production skills that speak to a company with experience. These speakers are the first time I have ever seen a Sonance product, and I am sold. As a tagline, I have always had top-shelve speakers in my home and can tell you this set is a winner. Excuse my many adjectives, but at times reviewing a new product is pure joy.

    The weight of the amp and speakers is 14lbs which is fairly heavy for bookshelf size speakers, have found weightier amps and speakers typically produce the best sounds.

    Now on to Setup – you need speaker wire; I used 16 gauge which works well and easy to install.

    Three setup steps instructions in the QuickStart Guide:

    1. Connect speakers to amp with the banana plugs

    2. Download Sonos App

    3. “Enjoy music, TV and more”

    Sonos App walks you through the rest of the setup steps. Setup was smooth and easy. Installed my system in my garage which required the most work for me running cables up and over roof to speakers. Sans my wiring I believe the setup would require about 30 minutes.

    Sonos Amp - 125W/Ch at 8 ohms

    Clean sound and design with tremendous power all in a small footprint, brilliant.

    Capacitive touch controls – excellent touch control for volume and flipping through songs.

    Auto software updates

    • HDMI ARC for TV

    • 60Hz - 30kHz frequency response

    • Peak Power Handling 80 watts

    • Speaker enclosures are sealed

    • Output for Subwoofer

    • Two banana plugs for speaker wire – nice

    • RCA AUX input for audio devices

    • Ethernet ports (2)

    • Stereo or dual-mono sound

    • Optical output supported (optical adaptor required)

    Sonos App:

    • Adjustable bass and treble & balance controls (App)

    • Home Theater controls

    • Surround sound control for two Sonos Speakers with Wi-Fi

    • All your services in one place, your App

    On my App I have the following services (believe that about all streaming services are available):

    • Sonos Radio

    • Plex Server

    • Spotify

    • Line-in

    • Music stored on my tablet

    The All-Weather speakers have an environmental range of -13 to 140 degrees. Gone are the days of lugging my Bluetooth speaker to and from my garage in hot/cold weather. Love it!

    The speakers are IP-66 waterproof rated, this spec I had to look up:

    “A rating of IP66 means that the product is fully protected against

    dust and solid objects. Moreover, the product is protected against powerful water jets projected by a nozzle (12.5mm) from any directions.”

    Additionally, the speakers are Mil-Spec 810 which protects the system speakers from humidity, salt spray, and UV rays.

    Mil-Spec 810:

    “Part One of MIL-STD-810 describes management, engineering, and technical roles in the environmental design and test tailoring process. It focuses on the process of tailoring design and test criteria to the specific environmental conditions an equipment item is likely to encounter during its service life.”

    Bottom-line, these speakers are made to take the weather in effectively any environment. The design and construction are seriously incredible, that Sonance developed speakers that work in wide-ranging climate ranges and deliver wonderfully rich music. Being a techy audio person, I am clearly astonished at Sonance’s technology and more to the point, the tunes.

    Best way to stream music in the backward

    I installed this sonos amp and snace mag speakers in my back yard. The music streaming services are endless, from Pandora to SiriusXM, YouTube music, music on your phone or tablet, amazon music, newly added sonos radio and on....

    Installation is easy, I simply mounted my outdoor speakers to the lower half of my siding where I knew there was a 2x12 for a solid attachment, then drilled two 1/2" holes for my shielded speakers wire, along with 4 holes per speaker mount. Then I ran my speaker wire through my basement drop ceiling into my wall cavity to my entertainment center where my sonos amp is installed. Connect the amp to the speaker wire, then I plugged the amp into my other sonos amp with ethernet cable for internet connection. Next just plug in the power cord and connect to the sonos amp for setup.

    The sound and volume is incredible, totally fills my backyard and them some with audiophile sound outdoors. These speakers have nice rounded sound with perfect highs and boomy bass. I like that you can tweak the EQ in the sonos ap settings, there's also a Loudness setting which I keep Off.

    I now find myself wanting to find excuses to enjoy my backyard more now, since I have endless music that sounds great on tap. I highly recommend giving this sonos amp and sonace speakers try. You will not be disappointed.

    Great speakers. Great amp.

    Sounds great and easy to install. You’ll need to buy speaker cable to hook it up. No distortion and no rattling at all at all volume levels. Recommend.

    streaming music to your outdoor speakers!

    wow what a perfect way to enjoy your music outdoor! sonace outdoor speakers is her for me to enjoy the outdoor

    a lot better than before.

    Pros

    - the speaker size is 7.5 cm wide it’s 12.5 in tall

    - sonace speaker also comes with all the brackets required to install outdoor

    - the color is white, not sure if they have black version out, but you can pain the grill to which ever color you’d like

    - it’s ip66 weather proofing, so you shouldn’t have any problem or worried about it getting wet all year around.

    - let’s talk about how it sounds coz these speaker are amazing, so for those thinking these are weak, you will be surprised.

    - but of course these speakers will need to be powered with sonos amp that came with the speaker, that’s when these speaker is about to go to a whole new level of outdoor sounds.

    - the amp is the real star of the show, it gives the speaker the access to be able to be used on literary anything you can connect to your phone.

    - you will need your phone to use this amp, will need to download the sonos app, to transfer sounds through the speakers

    - The sonos amp comes with banana plug to where the speaker wire can connect into

    - I placed the sonos amp under my entertainment center, I have also used the HDMI ARC to connect to the tv, so when I play music videos, I can listen to it though the sonace speakers outside

    - the amp also have internet port at the back, and the ability to connect your turn tables to play music

    - alll major music applications can be listen through your sonace outdoor speaker, using sonos, it just gives an extra layer of music freedom around your house

    Cons

    - I do wish that they included speaker cables inside box, this would be another portion you will need to spend on

    - these speaker combination is not cheap it retails aboit $1200, at the time reviewing this it’s on sale for 1k

    I have enjoy listening to Sonace outdoor speaker for almost a week now, from the audio quality that this speaker and sonos brings is amazing, say good by to my small bluetooth speaker I used to listen to outside, now these outdoor speaker just competed what I needed for a great experience.

    Absolutely phenomenal outdoor sonic experience

    I had been looking for a permanent music solution for my new patio for some time when I came across the Sonance Outdoor Streaming System. Knowing how excellent Sonos equipment is, I jumped right on this system. Once unboxed, I set it up temporarily on my workbench in the garage to do the initial network connections and some basic testing (didn’t want to start drilling holes only to find out there was an issue after the fact).

    After tracking down some speaker wire, which for some strange reason is not included in the box, I downloaded the new Sonos app (S2) as the original app is not compatible and began the amp setup. In the meantime, I wired each speaker to the amp. An interesting design note here—the wire feeds through a grommet in the rear of the speaker and the actual connections are made in the front and are covered by a dust cap.

    At this point, the amp had finished connecting to my network and going through the obligatory update. I had absolutely no hiccups during the initial setup process and it was as simple as following the on-screen prompts. It took about 10 minutes start to finish. Now it was time to see what this thing could do, but the app is not super intuitive on how to actually start playing music. After digging around a bit, I figured out how to add my streaming music services of choice (there are a lot of choices here so your favorite or two should definitely be there) and authorize Sonos to access them. I went ahead and set up my Alexa account while I was at it so I could have voice control should that be necessary. I also found and tweaked the EQ (in settings select system, then look for your amp under products, then scroll down to sound to find the EQ) which obviously had to be tweaked again once I actually had music playing in the final location.

    Back into the app to play some music. There is no intuitive way to play a specific song or station from a desired music service. At least not that I’ve been able to find. Since this is billed as a “streaming system” I would expect the app to be more streaming friendly. Fortunately, there are some easy work-arounds. First, there is a search function that will look for your selection across all of your enabled and linked accounts. Not ideal for me but its there. Second, and much simpler if you have an iOS device, is that the Sonos amp supports Airplay so you can go to your normal app and just cast directly to the system. That has been my go-to and it has worked well for me so far.

    Once I got all of that figured out, I got to experience the awesome sound of this system. Although the bass won’t rattle the neighbor’s windows, the overall sound quality is phenomenal especially considering these are outdoor speakers. The highs are crisp and clean, the bass is punchy enough to know it’s there, and the mids stay right where they are supposed to. After fiddling around in awe listening to different genres I decided I had to get these things mounted.

    I installed the included mounting brackets to the rear of my house near the eave and drilled holes through the wall into my attached garage making sure they were just slightly larger than the speaker wire my wife had gone to Best Buy to purchase while I was playing…I mean testing. I fished the wires through the holes from the inside, through the grommets in the speakers, and snapped the speakers in place. After making the connections (which again are in the front), I pulled the excess wire back into the garage and made the final connections to the amp inside. Although it should be obvious, it is worth noting the speakers are weather resistant but the amp certainly is not and should be installed in a protected space. Total install in the final location took less than 20 minutes for me but your mileage may vary. After some minor positioning and EQ tweaks, I was done and have been out on the patio listening to music at every possible moment since! Everyone who has come by has commented on how clean the install is and how great the sound pumping out of these speakers is. They are not small by any stretch but the color blends very well with my home’s trimwork so they don’t stick out like a sore thumb, much to my wife’s liking. You can paint the grills if you’d prefer them to be a different color and you can also remove the Sonance badge from the grills if you feel that necessary.

    Overall, I cannot say enough about the Sonance Streaming System. Apart from my small beef with the app design as far as music playback, I have no complaints and no longer have to pull out multiple Bluetooth speakers and link them together to enjoy music all across my backyard and pool area. I just can’t wait to be able to have parties again to really let the neighbors hear what this thing can do!

    Unobtrusive Outdoor Speaker System Good Sound Q

    The Sonos Sonance MAG6.1 is an outdoor speaker set designed to be placed unobtrusively through your hard. It comes with 6 speakers, an amplifier, and a subwoofer. Not included is a 100 feet or so of 14/1 speaker wire which you will need to complete the job of wiring everything. If you're doing it yourself, and will be trenching wire to hide it, expect 3-4 hours of installation time, maybe more depending on how hard your ground is and any final adjustments you make to your plan to lay out the speakers and sub. While there are 6 speakers, this is actually just a stereo system. Three speakers (and the sub) are wired for L and the other three speakers (and sub) are wired for R. There are instructions that provide guidance for placement to get best L/R and speaker area coverage with the sub to be placed (and wired) ideally in the midpoint of all the speakers. The speakers are on stakes for easy insertion into typical backyard/garden soil/grass. The sub is designed to be buried, but in my installation, I had a natural curve in a tree in my yard that made it a good place to semi "hide" the sub. The whole point is for the entire system to be essentially hidden, unobtrusive in your yard with sound seemingly coming out of nowhere. While my yard wasn't 100% conducive to meeting this goal, they are still pretty unobtrusive once installed (I think having installed them myself, they were more likely to catch my eye) and with the normal growth that comes with spring, even I would start having a hard time spotting anything but the sub.

    The speakers and sub are a brown color, perhaps to blend in with the ground or soil and by not being shiny, won't draw attention due to sunlight reflecting off of it. That also fits well with positioning near a tree, it actually doesn't look too out of place. The material seems durable, on par with premium exterior furniture, so I'm not worried out the finish wearing quickly due to UV exposure and rain. There was some concern with water and rust on the electrical connections, but each speaker comes with some water resistent wire nuts. The amp/controller itself is just a matte black affair, the usual color of home electronic devices. If anything, that may be the one that catches the most attention as one doens't typically have something like that in the back yard. However, it can be hidden depending on what you end up using to supply audio. It has HDMI, actual speaker inputs, and wireless streaming. The wireless streaming made the most sense for me as my backyard wasn't already wired with audio. The HDMI option isn't that great - there's no passthru so really, it means you'd be running this off an audio recevier that has HDMI out. Luckily, my projector (which I use for random movie nights during the summer) has stereo audio out, so I can make do with that. As there are only three touch sensitive buttons on the amp, you'd need to Sonos app to actually configure the amp and act as the connection to whatever streaming service you want to use (there's also an ethernet input if you want to route yet another set of wires though you'd still need to configure things with the app). Luckily, it seems to support all the major players, pun intended.

    The sound quality was good. Surprising even for a system of this size that was dispersed through the backyard. There is clealy some position dependent behavior, but that's to be expected from a stereo system like this. But being within the large "sweet spot" of L/R coverage, the sound was pretty good considering it was just stereo and over a wide area. I was very pleased. The sub provided a detectible bass, especially if you were leaning against the tree. The instructions suggest putting it against something solid or structural to help enhance the bass effect if you want more. I now wonder what it would be like actually partially buried in the ground! While you could play/pause advance music from the amp, as it was out of the way, the simpler thing is to use the mobile app or another device. I already use a mini device from a certain rainforest named company which previously was paired to a set of bluetooth speakers that I'd put outside for parties. This gives me both app control and a physical device that is located in a more accessible setting. Volume wise, this will get loud enough to cause enforcement level disturbance calls. I didn't even push it to the max during the period that I was playing with the Sonance for this review. Perhaps a summer party will give me the excuse to do so.

    In summary, I think is a a great speaker system. You are limited to stereo and a lot of sources will need to be gated by the Sonos app, but you get great sound with decent coverage in a large yard. Everything is easy to setup, though the initial speaker placement and wiring running in particular is labor and time intensive. It does a good job of hiding away in the background, though your ability to do that will depend on your yard configuration. Given the directionality of the speakers, that can be tough in some areas. What would make this system perfect from that standpoint are omni-directional speakers that you could essentially bury in the ground - pretty much having a similar setup to the sub, though perhaps without a dome. Another plus is that it appears that you can expand the number of speakers on each side. This could be nice to cover a larger yard or perhaps completely surround a centrally located patio or backyard area.

    Great sound, installation does take some effort

    Like many people we were accustomed to using a Bluetooth, portable speaker out by the pool or moving it around the yard depending on where we were located. Well, those days are gone now after installing this Sonance MAG6.1 outdoor streaming sound system. When the box arrived one can tell you’re definitely stepping up to a complete sound system. The box is on the large size and once opened it’s easy to understand why since the subwoofer itself is a pretty good size at about 11” across. The six speakers and the subwoofer are a nice brown color that feel very good quality wise and hopefully for the price tag will prove to be very durable to the outside elements.

    We chose to take on installation of the system ourselves, but those who don’t have the time or ability to do so may want to pay the Geek Squad or others to take care of this. Before starting the process I went online and ordered 14/4 CL3 speaker wire. The instruction manual is nicely done in text and illustrations and includes a chart on what speaker wire is recommended based on the distance from the amp to the furthest speaker. The speaker wire we purchased was over a $100 so just keep in mind that you’ll be incurring this expense too. After that, it was on to digging a trench from the point of the last speaker location to the entry point into the house and digging a 11” hole for the subwoofer. Yes, this is not the fun part and takes a while! Then on to rolling out the speaker wire in the trench, partially burying the subwoofer, connecting each speaker with the supplied silicone filled wire connectors and connecting the amp. We drilled a hole through the back wall of our house and took the speaker wire through that into our laundry room. The amp is sitting on a shelf in our laundry room where power is available and the WiFi signal is adequate. Once done, it was rewarding to download the Sonos app, create an account and link to our Spotify service to test the sound out.

    The sound quality does not disappoint and can be taken to a level that the neighbors will take notice. It does help that each of the six speakers is easily placed to control the direction of the sound. Ours can be enjoyed by the pool and on our back patio without being too invasive to our neighbors. The Sonos app is user friendly and everyone in our household was able to sign on to the same Sonos account. Within the app we can select which family members Spotify account to play from by simply using the drop down arrow under the Spotify logo. It looks like we can access our Iphone’s music library by uploading it to a streaming music service, using Apple AirPlay or playing your tracks to Sonos from a mac, pc or NAS drive.

    The climate where we live allows outdoor enjoyment of our yard a good part of the year so the cost of this system is worthwhile to get quality sound in a large portion of our yard by simply accessing the Sonos mobile phone app. For those with Sonos speaker systems in other parts of their home the continuity to outdoor spaces seems logical for simplicity of use. Given the great sound, user friendly Sonos app and nice landscape aesthetic of system components we’d recommend the Sonance MAG6.1 outdoor steaming sound system.

    In a word…WOW!!!

    UNBOXING, AND INITIAL IMPRESSIONS:

    First and foremost, this packaging is NOT “environmentally friendly”. While the six primary speakers are packed inside two large ‘egg crates’ (three speakers per), the subwoofer & Sonos Amp are all packed huge pieces of environmentally-UNfriendly Styrofoam. Also, be forewarned that the primary box is HUGE & HEAVY. Instructions are divided into two separate manuals…one from Sonance (for the MAG6.1 speaker system, and the other from Sonos (for the Amp). Both are quite sparce, but the great majority of information needed. Unfortunately, speaker wire is NOT included, so be sure to remember this when ordering and/or picking up the MAG6.1 system. Not knowing this caused a delay in my being able to install the system. One final thing to note before getting into the review – although this is called a “6.1” system, it is NOT a ‘surround’ system…you will have three “left” speakers, three “right” speakers (thus the ‘6’), and a subwoofer (thus the “.1’).

    SETUP:

    Setup, like the instructions, is a 2-part order. The Sonance instructions covers everything you need to know to install the speakers, wire gauge needed, and connecting to the Sonos Amp, while the Sonos instructions covers the incredibly simple 3-step process for getting the Amp operational. Starting with the speakers, you will need between 100-250ft of 18-14 gauge speaker wire. While it is possible to use traditional 2-conductor speaker wire, it is advisable (and HIGHLY recommended) to use 4-conductor wire (commonly referred to as 14/4, which is exactly what caused my delay, as all three of my local Best Buy stores didn’t have any in-stock, and I had to order it. Also, due to the “lay of the land”, I did NOT follow the wiring as specified in Figure 3 (more on this in a bit). Finally, the speakers should be placed (depending on the siz of the yard) approx 8-10 feet apart. The primary reason for using 4-conductor wire is so that you can alternate between “left” & “right” speakers. As such, when wiring the speakers, you NEED to remember which wires (colors are red, black, green, & white) you’re using for “left”, and which you’re using for “right” – crossing them could produce ‘interesting’ results…or no audio at all.

    Whereas Figure 3 indicates wiring should be in this order – Amp, left, right, left, sub, right, left, right, my wiring is more like a ’T’, going from Amp to sub, and then 4 left/right speakers to the right, and 2 left/right speakers to the left (see diagram at end of review). This is because I decided to run 4 of the speakers (and sub) along the back fence, and the other 2 speakers along the open area on the right side of the house. If you want, you could even run all 6 speakers, one after the other, with the sub before, or after, all 6 speakers. The choice is entirely yours. However you choose to wire them, it is HIGHLY advisable to test the system BEFORE burying the wires, and BEFORE setting the sub in the hole you dug. Speaking of the sub, and that hole I just mentioned, in case you weren’t getting it, approximately two-thirds of the sub is placed below ground level (Figure 2 give the dimensions needed). Once all wiring has been connected, and you’d tested the system (to be certain it’s working), only then should you bury the wires & sub.

    Moving onto the Sonos instructions, as I said, it’s a simple 3-step process. Step 1 is to connect the speakers to the Amp (which also happens to be step 1 of the Sonance instructions, as shown in the previously-mentioned Figure 3). Step 2 is to download the Sonos app. For those already owning other Sonos speakers (or another Sonos Amp, as I have), you can skip step 2, and just go to ‘Add Product’ within the app’s settings. Step 3 is optional, as it allows you to connect your Amp (via HDMI cable) to your TV. You can also add another audio source, as there is a L/R ‘Line-in’ (for example, if you wanted to add a CD player, or have your TV’s audio, so that those outside can listen to whatever game is on TV).

    IN-USE:

    If you already own, or have owned in the past, any Sonos components, then you’re already aware of their outstanding streaming ability, as well as the incredibly-good sound quality their amplification components can create. Additionally, if you own, or have owned, any Sonance speakers, you already know the fantastic sound quality of their speakers. Put these two together, and you’ve got one of the best streaming sound systems you can get. Although (officially) designed for outdoors, I have the original Sonos Amp, as well as a pair of Sonance Mariner 54 Outdoor speakers, set up in the master bedroom, with the speakers wall-mounted above the bed…and, I can confirm that the sound quality is extremely good, and powerful.

    Now, not only do I have that same ability for outside, but there’s the addition of the “boom” of a sub…plus, I can hear the music no matter where I am in the back yard. Ok…gotta be truthful…it’s not so much a “boom”, as it is powerful low-frequency audio. It’s not exactly the same as having a subwoofer producing low-frequency tones via its own dedicated sub output (although, it DOES need to be said that the Sonos Amp DOES have a dedicated sub output, but it is NOT a powered output. At the same time, it does do a VERY good job at filtering/producing only the sub frequencies. What I suspect (I’d have to disassemble the sub, and one of the satellite speakers, in order to prove/disprove it) is that each of the seven speakers (the sub, plus the 6 satellites) each have their own built-in crossover, with the sub filtering out the above-80Hz frequencies, and the satellites filtering out the below-80Hz frequencies. As for the sound quality, and power, color me ‘impressed’, as it sounded better than I expected (due to it being an outdoor system.

    Although the Amp only has three touch controls, the majority of true control will be done through the Sonos app…so, get used to using it. I’m not going to go into the app, as it’s (mostly) self-explanatory. If you’ve used iTunes, Google Play Music, iHeartRadio, or any other mobile music app, then you already have an understanding of how the app functions. My best suggestion is to just “play around” with the app, and learn it’s abilities.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

    I know I already mentioned this…but, I feel the NEED to reiterate it once more – this system does NOT come with speaker wires. And, to be completely honest, I don’t understand why. When you purchased a security camera system that uses PoE cameras, the system ALWAYS comes with Ethernet cables (typically one 50ft cable for each camera). While you might need a longer cable (or cables) for 1-2 cameras, at least it comes with cables. As such, the Sonance MAG6.1 Sonos System SHOULD come with speaker wire…even if it’s not the length, or gauge, that the buyer needs…as it would, at least, get the buyer started. If the buyer wants/needs longer wires and/or the buyer wants a thicker gauge, they’d have the option of buying it.

    FINAL THOUGHTS:

    Overall, I thoroughly like the Sonance MAG6.1 Sonos System. I really only have two complaints – the price, and the lack of including speaker wire. For each, I deducted 0.5 stars, thus the reason behind the 4-star rating. If you’re looking for an all-in-one outdoor streaming system, this is an excellent choice. As for the “Would you recommend this” question, honestly, I don’t think I even need to answer, as I’m guessing you already know my answer…but, since Best Buy requires an answer, it is where it’s supposed to be. If it wasn’t for the overly-high price, or the lack of including speaker wire, this would have received a 5-star rating. On the ‘plus’ side, Best Buy DOES put this system on sale, and, when they do, it’s at a very reasonable price. If it’s on sale, and you’re looking to get an outdoor streaming system, grab it, QUICK.

    Disclaimer: This product was provided free, or at reduced cost, for the purpose of reviewing the product. Nevertheless, the above review, be it positive, negative, or somewhere in-between, is a 100% honest review, and the price paid absolutely no part in my review.

    Exactly what I wanted and more!

    Last year I searched all summer for an outdoor speaker system for our pool. My criteria seemed fairly simple as follows:

    -Speakers needed to be hard wired so I didn't have to bring them inside to charge them

    -Sounds quality needed to be solid

    -I didn't need AM/FM, CD, etc.

    -I didn't want Bluetooth (distance concerns), but instead wanted to be able to control the sound from my wireless network so I could seamlessly play music from Pandora, Prime Music, Spotify, etc.

    After searching all last summer for a system that met my needs, I had pretty much given up.

    This spring, my wife messaged me a link to a Sonance system. While this system wasn't exactly what I was looking for (the speakers in the system she shared mounted on a deck/wall but I wanted in ground speakers instead), but reading more about the Sonance line of products gave me a sense of hope. Then, I stumbled upon the MAG Series 6.1 system and became intrigued.

    After reading about the system, I became increasingly excited. The system was on sale at BBY (apparently this is a BBY, Sonos and Sonance exclusive system) and after a ton of research, I bit the bullet and ordered.

    Reading the reviews, I knew I was going to have to be the speaker wire and decided to buy 100 ft of 14/4 buried cable on Amazon at the same time I made the purchase.

    Both the speaker wire and sounds system arrived on the same day. It was the middle of the week and I didn't have the time nor energy to install it, but hooked up two of the satellites and the base to the AMP, installed the Sonos app, and immediately knew I made the right choice. The sound quality was absolutely amazing! My wife and I sat in our kitchen and listened to music on the system for probably 2 hours. I was jazzed!

    On Saturday that same week, I began the process of getting the wires buried and getting everything installed. I knew it was going to be a bear, as my pool area has rock landscaping. I painfully pushed the rock back and dug a trench for laying the wire. I also channeled a small hole in my walk out basement siding to chase the wire in to connect to the AMP. While it took longer than I thought it would, I knew it would be worth it.

    When I was done, I had installed the 6 satellite speakers around my pool (all facing toward my house) and dug a hole and placed the sub in the middle and backfilled the rock.

    When everything was done, I got the joy of listening to the result of this hard work. And, I can say with certainty, it was completely worth it.

    The base is amazing. The dual channel satellites are crazy good (I run in dual stereo, but you can apparently run in single channel if you'd like). And the Sonos app rocks!

    The neighbor kids that come down to swim now all have the Sonos app and can play what they want when they want. Also, I can turn the volume down from my phone if they get a bit crazy.

    What's even cooler is that the Sonos app also works with Alexa. So if I want to play something outside, turn the volume up or down, all I need to do is ask Alexa and it's a done deal.

    Net, net, at the time I made this purchase this system was on sale which convinced me to pull the trigger. And, while I did get a nice discount at the time of the sale, I wouldn't hesitate knowing what I know now to pay the full price. This system rocks and is well worth every penny.

    This Is a MONSTER

    This way exceeded my expectations. First the sound I was amazed how clear it sounded even at low volume it’s better than anything I have in the house. Love the receiver and app super easy to stream from the Sonos app. This is an absolute ten for sound and features and the sub was about perfect.

    Great sounding landscape speakers .

    I’ve ran this setup in 4.1 and 6.1 . Sounds great either way . In 4.1 more power goes to the each speaker so there’s a louder output . But if you have a large area 6.1 is ideal.

    Discrete, Powerful Sound

    I have been using the Sonance 6.1 outdoor sound system for about three days now and have experienced the following.

    Installation:

    Sonance does a pretty great job with instructions. Everything is well laid out in the packaging, so you know where everything is as you go through the instructions. The subwoofer is intended to be buried in the ground; however, this is appears to be optional. If you want a less “permanent” installation this is a nice option. The speakers are planted into the soil via ground spikes which is very easy to do. I found if you use a metal rod like a screwdriver to first loosen the soil where the speaker stake will be going its much easier incase the soil is hard. Then, you run the cables from the speakers to the home base amp which I located in a shed outside my house. Keep in mind, Sonance does not provide enough speaker wire to run the speakers to the amp. Make sure you buy some extra speaker wire that’s outdoors friendly. I bought 200 ft of wire since I was running each speaker about 30 feet from their location to the amp. The cables to the amp is super simple to install and the instructions have that all laid out.

    Sound Quality:

    Wow, these things really sound incredible. Up until now I’ve been using a pretty nice Bluetooth speaker for my outdoors music. This is not even remotely comparable. The Sonance sound system is very loud and incredibly directional, which is especially important. I have neighbors to my right that are no more than 30 feet from my sound system which was a concern of mine. I don’t want to be the annoying neighbor with the loud sound system. Due to the directional nature of this system, I was able to aim the speakers in a way where minimal amount of sound bled towards his yard. This allows me the ability to play the sound pretty loud without disturbing the neighborhood. If this is one of your concerns, then just know you can mess with the directions and keep it pretty private. One more thing ill mention about the sound is the quality of the bass. I was very interested in if you would be able to feel/hear the bass since it’s a pretty large outdoor area. You can feel the heck out of the bass. If I lived somewhere more private, I would crank that thing all the way up and it would sound incredible. If bass is important in sound profile to you then you will be very happy with this unit.

    Conclusion:

    The Sonance Outdoor 6.1 sound system was designed to hide in your backyard, and it does just that. I placed my speakers in a way that you couldn’t see them unless you were deliberately looking for them. The brown color makes it even easier to blend them into the foliage. I am extremely satisfied with the system. Just understand you will be doing probably around 3-6 hours of labor to do this properly. Clear instructions, great sound, discrete looks, makes this a big winner.

    Perfect For Gathering Around The Fire Pit

    Great Product. Very happy with the sound quality. As others mention you have to bury the cable which requires effort but it’s worth the high quality sound. Also the Sonos Amp has to be indoors. I added it around a new 45”x20” patio with an outdoor kitchen. So far everyone is impressed with the sound coverage and clarity. Speakers are well concealed in landscaping. Well worth the purchase.

    Klipsch outdoor speakers

    I am using these as garage speakers, with a Yamaha 202 receiver. Play with the placement and toe in before permanently mounting and you will be very happy with these speakers.

    If you do not need ear bleed loud music, these will work well, very clear good sounding speakers with most kinds of music.

    The Yamaha is 100watt and great match, it can push these 50 watt speakers harder than they should be pushed but has good sound.

    Overall very happy with these speakers.

    back yard speakers

    Purchased these speakers based on previous Klipsch purchases. (I have a complete surround sound system in my home. Knowing the companies reputation, I got a pair of outdoor speakers. The KIO-650 outdoor speakers are less than my favorite speaker from Klipsch. Be prepared to dish out some power to run these and get full range sound from them. .still, they fail short in the mid to high range. I love Klipsch products, but these are not my favorite speakers!

    The function is great, but the all-weather finish didn't hold up. Purchased these in August 2016 to install by our pool and the white speaker part rusted within a year. They are still up and functioning, but certainly don't appear luxurious anymore. Decided to post this review now that I'm looking for something more aesthetically pleasing.

    Best outdoor speakers

    I had bought A pair years ago for my old house. When I moved I just had to take them with me and replace with less expensive klipsh for the buyers. I tried them out for the few weeks before I moved and did not even come close to the quality of the b&w. I now installed these in my new home and bought another pair of the same so they all match and have equal sound distribution. I have 4 of these now hooked up to a Sonos amp and they sound amazing. FYI the Sonos amp is 250w total so these speakers are getting 62.5 watts each and are way louder then you would need. Unless you don’t like your neighbors. The speaker says 100 watts peak power . No way do you need that much power . I keep these speakers with the volume way lower then they can handle right now as it is. But they have plenty of room for more .

    Excellent Sound, Design and Finish.

    I've installed several outdoor speakers from various brands and these B&W speakers are by far the best in terms of installation, sound, and design. These use a single swing arm style mounting mechanism with integrated wiring and terminals. The way they mount is very unique compared to other offerings. The overall fit and finish give a very clean install. Keep in mind that prior install preparation and technique will always yield a flawless installation regardless of the speaker choice.

    The sound is incredible. If matched to a good amplifier with adequate power these will more than satisfy your sound needs. For their size, they provide a great amount of bass projection and clarity. In part due to the bass radiator design on the back of the speaker housing and the shape/construction of the housing.

    While these are not inexpensive, you are getting a well-crafted speaker that meets and exceeds all requirements for an outdoor speaker compared to others in this category.

    These speakers sound great for the price. I replaced a set of Dual outdoor speakers that lasted 9 years so I hope these Yamaha speakers last as long. For best results install the speakers under your deck so that the sound is not blasting into your ears. Much easier to hear your guests talking when the sound is underneath you and it helps to improve the bass. The picture I am attaching to this review shows where I installed my speakers under my deck. This also helps to protect the speakers from the weather.

    Not the greatest sound, but you get what you pay for! I use it for background music on my patio. Sounds a lot better than the small, portable radio I used to listen to out there. Fits nicely under the overhang & easy to install. I have to be careful not to “crank it up” too much because my amplifier puts out more than the speakers can handle! But for my purposes - music you can play while still having a conversation - it word well. Anything “better” was over twice the cost.

    Fantastic sound for my restaurant

    I purchased 6 of these for my small restaurant driven by AudioSource AMP 1200 in bridged mode (80 RMS watts @ 8-ohms). Music or TV audio plays through them 12 hours a day – 7 days a week (mind you I’m using these indoors not out). They are mounted 11ft high, angled down towards the customers; each speaker covers about 400 sq ft. of sound

    Mounting them was super easy and the speaker swivel helps aim them. They only weigh about 10lbs and can be mounted vertical or horizontally. I used 50lbs rated - metal drywall anchors to mount these speakers on my ½” thick drywalls (I mounted it vertically so that I can aim up\down)

    The sensitivity of these speakers are high (92db), which is a good thing in that they do not require a lot of power for them to get loud; therefor I only have them turned about 50% of the way up to produce 55-58db of background music. During sporting events, I’ll turn it up about 70% of the volume (producing about 82-85db) so that they can still be heard over the cheering crowd. Trust me these speaker can go very loud without much effort.

    With the amp that I have powering these, the highs and mids sound crystal clear and no distortion at high volumes. The wall facing 5.5" x 10" low pass radiator speaker produces some bass (tight punch), but quickly fades away the further you get from the speaker. The bass is better than its outdoor competitor, but you’ll need a subwoofer if you want the lower frequencies, there’s just no way around that fact.

    Designed for outdoors, I see no issues of these going bad anytime soon using indoors and the 5 year factory warranty is a huge plus.

    I did test the speakers out with my Denon AVR Receiver (100 watts RMS) at home and sounded fantastic for music and movies. The bass is a bit more present in a smaller 4 closed walled room, but I’d still recommend a subwoofer if you are in search of a bit more bass.

    I would highly recommend these speakers for a residential and commercial use.

    Worth the money!

    Great sound, quality product. Product came nicely packaged with detailed installation instructions. I have been a long time Definitive enthusiast so I had high hopes for these speakers. These speakers do not disappoint!

    I mounted them horizontally on the ceiling of our patio, which is just vinyl siding covering up the ceiling joists. We added "studs" between the joists so we could mount them onto solid wood. I put rubber washers between the bracket and the vinyl and there is no rattling or vibration of the siding. The design of the bracket makes for easy adjustment to ensure a straight and level installation. I mounted the bracket 7" from the wall. There is not much clearance between the speaker and the bracket so using banana plugs for the wires makes for a tight fit. Connected the speakers to Zone 2 of a Denon 2307, using an Apple Airport Express to play music from our iOS devices. The patio is 30x15 with another 50ft stretching out for the pool area - these speakers fill the whole space with crisp sound even when only using a moderate volume. We are extremely satisfied and would recommend these speakers to anyone who is sound quality conscious and looking to improve their outdoor space. You get what you pay for, and these are worth the money!

    Exactly what you can expect from Def Tech

    I spent a great deal of time searching for a good sounding outdoor speaker. I tried the Yamaha NS-AW390BL and they had no bass to speak of and the sound quality wasn't much better. I listened to the Klipsch AW 650 and they sounded good. I wasn't able to listen to the Def Tech's before purchasing so knowing my experience with Def Tech quality and reading tons of good reviews, I took a chance and ordered. This speaker has amazing sound quality and bass, even outdoors. I have these connected to a Sonos Connect amp. Since the speakers are 8 ohms they're only receiving 55 watts each. Even still these speakers are loud and are a audiophiles dream come true for outdoors. These speakers are a larger speaker, but still tucked neatly under my soffits. Sure these are a little more expensive than the others, but they are well worth the money. If you just want something to make some noise out side, don't waste the extra money on the Def Tech's. However, if you're an audiophile that enjoys a well balanced great sounding speaker, then AW6500's are what you want.

    You won’t regret this purchase.

    I’m a long time Definitive fan so when it came time to replace the Paradigm Stylus 370 speakers in my backyard the Definitive AW6500 were the only choice for me. These produce great highs and mid-range but where they really shine is in the lower end. They produce bass that my my former outdoor speakers just couldn’t achieve especially when positioned under an awning where the passive radiator can reflect off a wall.

    Wow, couldn't be more impressed!

    Sonance did an incredible job with this new 4.1 system! Our patio feels like an awesome summer concert without the stacks of speakers! The speakers are also directional with the buried subwoofer so neighbor complaints aren't an issue at all for us! Make sure to grab some wire before taking on the install. Not to difficult, used a little edger type tool to make a mini trench to hide the wire and bury the speakers! Sound system is 10 out of 10 stars, would highly recommend for anyone looking to completely change the atmosphere of their patio!

    Full sound for outdooors

    My old outdoor speakers were JBL’s, I was skeptical buying a speaker without hearing how it sounded. This speaker not only looks & sounds great, but the bass is much more present than my old speakers. Great outdoor sound, would highly recommend. My prog rock: Yes, Genesis, Rush, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, and the shedders: Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Van Halen, all sound great outside. Page, Plant, Jones, & Bonham fill my yard with the best Zeppelin sounds like no other neighbor for miles around. Worth every $$, should be more money for this sound. Enjoy the music.

    I purchased these speakers to put on my back patio. I wanted to get something that was on the lower end of the price range as we don't use them a lot. Once I got them hooked up, I was amazed at the sound. I am powering them with a small class-d amp that's hooked to an AirPlay device. The bass isn't the strongest I've heard in outdoor speakers but it's more than sufficient. Highs are clear and I've been able to crank them up with little to no distortion. Installation is a snap, I'd recommend these to a friend.

    After reading many reviews and debating on spending lots of dollars on Bose I decided to buy these Polk speakers. I am not disappointed. For the money these speakers are great and I can fill my entire yard with sound if I wanted to. Powerful enough to disturb the neighbors if I wanted. I mostly listen to Rock and Country and both sound great. Nice full sound and crisp highs. Compliments the house well.

    Makes sitting on the patio even more pleasurable.

    I e owned Polk Audio surround sound speakers for the last 15 years. I've had them hooked up to two separate Onkyo receivers over those 15 years...

    Just like the surround sound speakers this pair gives out incredible sound and you can even hear the smallest details in the speakers also.

    Makes it even better when I got them for $99 :-). You can't go wrong with this.

    Excellent Outdoor Speakers

    After doing considerable research, I opted to roll the dice and give the Polk Patio 200's a try. They appear to be identical to the Polk Atrium 5's with a slightly different grill. I believe Polk makes these specifically for Best Buy with slight modifications. I am still waiting for confirmation from Polk customer service to see if they are in fact the same speaker.

    Regardless, the overall build quality seems excellent. The mounting brackets and grills are aluminum so they won't rust and the other metal components are either brass or stainless steel, so you know these will last. Also, I've had bad experiences with Poly tweeters for outside speakers as that material eventually dries out and disintegrates. The tweeters on these speakers are aluminum so they should be more durable. They are mounted under the eaves so that will offer additional protection.

    These speakers are being powered by a Niles volume control. The sound quality is excellent given their size. The bass is surprisingly full for a small 5 inch woofer (you can't expect heaven and earth at the price point and size). Mids are very warm and highs are crisp. I could not hear any distortion even at higher volumes. For the money, I'm not sure you can get a better bang for your buck with the Patio 200's!

    Awesome outdoor speakers!

    I purchased these speakers at an open box price, but if I knew how good they were, I would’ve paid double the retail price! They sound louder and crisper than my Bose speakers and have weathered the extreme hot and cold with no issues. These speakers are a great value!

    Good for Surround.

    I use these for the rear speakers on my surround sound and they do the job pretty well. Fairly well balanced speakers but wouldn't reccomend nearly as highly for dedicated speakers. Works great to add to a surround system though.

    Great cheap option for small room table-top rear surround speakers. Not sure of a scenario in which I would ever use them as mains. Sound and build quality just isn’t there and price suggests this.

    Very happy customer

    Have the Mariner 86 installed by Magnolia in the eaves of a covered patio. Sound quality is quite good for outdoor speakers. These speakers actually produce some legit bass, although it can become bloated on bass heavy tracks. Using a Denon pma 600ne (45w) amp, which provides plenty of power for clean sound at loud volumes if desired.

    Hands down, this is the best outdoor speaker you can purchase. I had previously purchased Def. Tech 6500, and the driver blew, then B&W outdoor speakers, and I returned them for the Mariner 86. It feels that you are at live concert when you turn them up. Spend the extra few hundred and upgrade to these. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

Turned them on to some Jason Mraz CD...."They're the absolute best speakers I've ever heard, especially for outdoors. They fill up a large area with sharp, clean, high's and killer bass!" I actually thought Jason Mraz was playing live! Highly recommended!!!

    One Stop Party Machine and Bluetooth Speaker

    This is not small speaker, it's 30.9 pounds just to give you an idea how much power this speaker has, it's a one stop shop for your music party needs.

    You can stand this speaker vertically or horizontally. This speaker has 2 sub woofers and 3 tweeters, it's loud enough to be outdoors and more then enough for indoor house parties. No need for another speaker but just in case want to use another one, you can sync up to 10 speakers but they have to be from the Sony XB speakers family.

    Its has infinity mirrors positioned around the speaker lights. The lighting is sync with the music of your choice, it's really a cool feature. You can also customize the colors settings with the Sony recommended "Fiestable" app which you can download if you really want to take advantage of all the features of this speaker. I personally didn't like the Motion Control option the app has, which allows you to change settings(DJing, Lighting, Replay, Scratching, phaser, isolation) by shaking your phone. It gets kind of annoying. I like the touch screen (its a circle and you touch it to activate and deactivate options) for better navigation between the effects in the app.

    DJ controls through the app are pretty cool idea, it has a reggaehorn and voice effects which says, "come on, lets go! and Here we go!" which creates a party atmosphere. You can use these effects while playing music at the same time. Over all the Fiestable app is a nice app with easy navigation you can use with this speaker. There are other features through the app; i don't want to get too detailed but I recommend downloading it. You'll enjoy just as much as i did.

    Ths speaker itself can be used like a simple bluetooth speaker, you can make outgoing calls and receive calls. Sony says it has up to 16 hours of play time not plugged in but if you read the fine print its 16 hrs without lights and volume level 16, and up to 3.5 hours of battery life at maximum volume with lights off as well. You can also use "stamina mode" which will help make the battery life run longer.

    The bass is nice, the sounds is great when on maximum. No distortion and muffled sound. You can also use a microphone for those karaoke nights, the back of the speaker has a mic level knob. You just need a dynamic microphone with a normal plug in(sold separately).

    I really like this speaker, i can see myself using it for karaoke nights with friends, having outdoor barbecues, tail gating at sport events. Everyone has been asking me where i got this speaker because they love it too, it's not too big and not too small, it's just right. I would recommend to anyone, this is a great speaker and packs a lot of punch. You won't regret it.

    I will never complain about bass ever again.

    Sony GTK-XB90 is perhaps the most exciting bass party speaker I have ever witness and used. The speaker is loaded with features right out the gate that keeps all of your friends in shock. I decided to host a party over the weekend and everyone asked about the speaker and where did it come from drawing them in with the LED colors. Sony Audio team have crafted one of the best Bluetooth speakers I've ever used in years. I love bass heavy music that's just who I am so when I got the chance to use this speaker I jumped on it. I also like to note that there are massive improvements over the XB70 such as the built-in huge battery.

    Design: It's a massive black beast being 30 pounds but it's not difficult to pick up, Sony designed this speaker with "portability" in mind putting handles on each side horizontally. The Sony logo is imprinted on both sides the GTK-XB90 giving it that nice touch of modern speakers. Colorful LED lights in an oval shape hides behind the grill are beautiful giving this speaker life. Not only that but another separate pair of lights near the speaker changes different colors. It's visually striking to anyone around. Something cool about these speakers is the Infinity mirror that bounces the lights back and forward on a mirror endlessly, creating a nice atmosphere in your party environment. I'm much more a fan of this design over the XB70 as it does set the mood and tone of the room. Lighting becomes intense in darker environments and the mirrors are not reflective to the point you can see yourself in them. If placed vertically you can place an iPad, tablet, or smartphone in a slot at the top. but over this, I would have just preferred a wireless charging spot for your phone/tablet. These speakers are not waterproof so if you have a party on the beach or near the pool I'll keep it a little farther away from the water. The speakers are durable with a thick coat of plastic surrounding the speakers so I think it can take a beating.

    Sound: With something that looks this good, do they sound good? Yes. They sound incredible. I can't get over how powerful these speakers are. The bass when activated punches through the ground where you can feel it so far away. On the XB90 there are 2 woofers (7.09") and 3 tweeters (2.36" Cones) and they blast so hard through the air. Features DSEE and Clearaudio+ but sadly there is no APT-X in the Bluetooth but LDAC is here. I can't get over how good the speakers sound and friends keep asking where to get them one. I'm by no means an audiophile but I do happen to enjoy these Bluetooth speakers for causal listening experiences as well. I did have the Apple TV connected to it for movies and the bass blast though. honestly, they are great with clarity throughout.As usual Sony Audio team put their heart into engineering a great listening party experiance.

    Battery life: Lasted the 3.5 hours at the loudest volume all the way through but at normal volume levels I was getting about 12 hours on the battery when unplugged. If I had the speaker on low I got the 16 hours of battery life. so, all in all, I think its good as I most likely won't be blasting out the block all the time. It will most certainly last the hours of a beach party.

    Features: Its a powerful Bluetooth speaker with a lot of features I happen to enjoy with using this. NFC worked fine with my Google Pixel so Android users have the easy pairing, Phone calls work through the speaker and the speaker itself have a mic on it. Most of the buttons are on the top/side but there are some additional inputs on the back of the speaker.

    Stamina Button: Allows you to put the speaker in a mode where you can get the max out of the battery life. This helps out if you are using it wireless giving you those few more hours out of the party. It drops the volume giving you another 5 hours of playback. In my experience, it works. (holding down the button will tell you the battery life levels)

    Function Button: This is for pairing the speakers.

    Extra Bass: Adds an INSANE amount of bass to the speakers which I love.

    Add Button: You can add more of Sony XB series line of speakers. Up to 10 speakers if you really want to get insane with it.

    W Party Chain Button: Yep this would let you use up to 10 speakers. So you can also add nine XB90 speakers with Bluetooth, if one so choose or you can mix it up with the XB40, XB30, XB20 to sync the same music and lights. (Something I will intend to do.) So no matter where you are in the house all the speaker's sync to the same lights/music which I know is a visual treat.

    -TIP- When the speaker is in standby mode the lights flashes when plugged in. It shows you a demo of the lights while off. To stop the lights just hold down the "W Party Chain" button. if you want to turn demo light mode on again just hold the button down again.

    Play & Pause Button: Pauses music and plays music. This button can also answer/end phone calls. (Side note here these speakers DO NOT come with a remote like the XB70.)

    Power Button: Turns off the speaker, Puts it in standby mode.

    Vol + & - Buttons: Turns up the volume levels.

    INPUTS & OUTPUTS: RCA Inputs and outputs, USB (playback), and Microphone input. And if you are wondering, yes Karaoke is so much fun when using these speakers. The family had a blast!

    Music Center / Fiestable app: There is a lot to talk about with the app. Music Center is where you can setup the speakers with various features. you can use EQ's, Change the LED colors of the speakers, local playlist, turn the bass on/off, and a host of other features. Fiestable is where you can use special sound effects like the Ruggie-horn to become your own DJ and can control the color of the LED lights. Sadly while the apps work fine they are super slow to load on both platforms (Android and iOS) and need improvements.

    There are so many features to these speakers that it's insane, and the main feature is the Sound and bass which is powerful. Sony delivered something special with these speakers and I hope they continue this line of the GTK. Everyone who seen the speaker loved it and its something to behold when you first encounter it. With the improvements over the XB70 I say its worth it. I already recommend this to friends and family who just want an awesome speaker.

    I had a small speaker that I took eveings and they all love the speaker, but then I thought of upgrading the speaker to something bigger so I reviewed so many brands and decided for the Sony for so many reasons.

    Earn GEEK CRED With This KINGDADDY Party Speaker!

    The Sony GTK-XB90 is the most powerful, best sounding Bluetooth "Party Speaker" that Sony has released to date. That is no small feat, as Sony created this market & introduces progressively more upscale & bold models. This BEAST is the KINGDADDY of "Party Speakers"!

    Weighing in at 31 lb & standing a full 26.4" H, 13.2" D & 13.2" W, this speaker makes a powerful statement just by showing up. Fire it up - WOW!

    LIKES:

    1- Fully customizable dazzling lights create a festive atmosphere; you set woofer & surrounding ring colors, as well as the strobe lights wirelessly with a free app. The high-spirited lighting drew more accolades than the musicality of the speaker! At one point, I sat this speaker in the family room during a family reunion with quiet conversation, and turned the music off. Ever changing hues augmented the spirit of good-fellowship in this intimate setting.

    2- A microphone jack with variable input level on the back of the speaker blend with direct plug-in or Bluetooth audio to facilitate a perfect Karaoke setup.

    3- The Bluetooth range is the most extensive of any speaker I have tested. I set the iPad 30 feet away and it played continuously without any dropouts.

    One touch NFC Pairing makes Bluetooth connection a breeze for phones so equipped.

    4- Audio Equalization, Flanger, Isolator, Wah, and other features are wirelessly customizable via the free App.

    5- Extra Bass is a simple, one touch setting on the control panel. It has a similar effect of "Loudness" equalization. I leave it on all of the time.

    6- The built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery makes it a killer Tailgating Machine. It can last up to 16 hours with modest volume & no lighting, or 3 hours at full volume, Extra Bass & lighting.

    7- The Carry Handle makes this "Party-In-A-Box" easy to transport.

    8- I intend to buy a second GTK-XB90 (you can Party Chain up to 10) to spread the sound & lighting. The music & lighting are automatically synchronized!

    9- Who else but Sony would include DSEE on a Party Speaker - a cool feature that enhances the quality of compressed digital music files. The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine is very effective & adds clarity to high frequencies.

    10- This is the only Bluetooth Speaker I have ever tested with BOTH Audio Input & Output connections. Amazon Fire TV connected to a projector via HDMI, then audio fed to this speaker using R+L RCA jacks change a "tin horn" 3" projector speaker to a room-filling overture. Still not enough bass? Add a subwoofer to the output jacks! BOOM!!

    11- Up to 3 smartphones can connect to this speaker simultaneously via Bluetooth, allowing 3) music libraries to share tracks.

    12- With 2) 7.09" Woofers & 3) 2.36" Tweeters, the GTK-XB90 plays horizontally or vertically in full stereo. Or add additionally speakers as aforementioned & spread the stereo effect.

    DISLIKES:

    1- I would prefer even more bass at lower overall volume levels. This can be accomplished today by plugging in an external subwoofer to the output jacks.

    CONCLUSION:

    Sony totally built the GTK-XB90 to create the ultimate "Party-On-The-Go". It nails this with brute power to play LOUD, yet with the finesse of clear audio. When you ROCK OUT with this Club Speaker, you will earn GEEK CRED! I am loving it!!

    Big Speaker with Big Sound and Big Fun

    The Sony GTK-XB90 is a big speaker that packs a big sound punch. Perfect for a party or karaoke, the strobe lights, led lights and infinity mirrors provide visual accompaniment to the thumping music.

    The speaker is portable because it has a rechargeable battery that will give you up to 16 hours of play time. The Sony Music Center app allows you to control the music and the lighting and there is a mic input that will allow you to talk or sing along with the music.

    This can also be party chained wirelessly with other GTK-XB90 speakers to expand the sound. Not only does the music sync between all of the speakers, but the lights sync as well.

    It can be positioned upright or on its side, and has rubber feet on two sides to accomodate either position.

    The sound is clear, smooth and loud but it's the ambiance that makes this speaker shine. It's a really cool speaker!

    Amazing sound

    I’m no audiophile but the music coming out of theses things sounds fantastic to my ears. I’m able to hear them even at the very back of my yard without having to blast them to the highest volume. We just had a new patio poured so before that happened I ran 12 gauge Monoprice direct burial speaker wire underground and hooked up to a Sonos Amp so I have all my speakers on one system. I definitely recommend! Picture attached to show depth of yard.

    Love these rock speakers by our pool!

    These speakers play well at several different volume levels in our backyard. We like to use them to fill in the background and have music, while people are still able to talk without yelling. Many people have commented on how nice the speakers sound.

    They are hooked in to a second zone that plays music by our pool. I am glad I didn’t spend over $1000 for an inground subwoofer type of backyard speaker system. These two speakers ($450 total cost) play bass sounds well all in a package that blends in with the landscaping. Very happy with this purchase!

The other choices were not nearly as well designed as these, they were ugly, and gimmicky. These fit perfectly into the landscape, they sound great and come with a subwoofer you bury in the ground. Here's what makes this so great, the system includes 8 satellite speakers, that's the real secret of what makes this so perfect. By spreading the speakers all over the yard, you can have the music at moderate levels and still enjoy it everywhere. If you only have one or two speakers you would have to crank them up to get sound all around your outdoor space. I live in Minnesota and winters don't get worse than here. So if these things survive that, you can bet they will easily survive your wussy weather :-). I hooked these up with an Difinitive Technology 300W amp, and an AudioQuest direct burial speaker wire as well as a Sonos Connect wireless streamer. It's perfext. You can con control your music from your phone and steam Pandora as far as your WiFi reaches. I took the leap and don't regret it.

    Awesome system

    I just had this system installed and I LOVE it. My wife and I didn't think we needed that many speakers for our yard however the benefit to the system is that we can play it at a low volume and we can hear it everywhere without blasting out the neighbors. Super cool product!

    POOR quality

    We bought the system for our pool, it was installed approximately two years ago. Initially the system sounded and looked excellent. However two years later, the paint and the grills on the speakers have not held up well. I do not recommend the system, look elsewhere. For the price, this system and the speakers should be more durable. Thanks.

    Great Rock Speaker

    I have been using my rock for about 3 months. I wired it to a Yamaha receiver. I set up 2 of these as Left and Right speakers and bought a bigger rock (different brand) for the center speaker. Even though these are smaller and less expensive than the bigger one I think the sound is very similar, these might actually be better than the larger more expensive one. When price is taken into consideration these are definitely better. The sound is very good. They don't have to be very loud to carry through the backyard. I have a pretty large yard which is why I got 3. For a larger yard you definitely need more than one or the sound will be off when not in front of the speaker. They can definitely get loud enough for neighbors to complain. Very pleased with the sound. the color is a little darker than I would like but it blends with everything. hopefully they last at least a few years, if so I would replace with the same.

    Great Rock Speaker

    I purchased this for the flower beds around our pool. I use the Sonos Amp to control so I can easily control volume with my iPhone which makes this super cool. The sound blows the harmon kardon outdoor speakers I have mounted on my porch out of the water. I was hesitant because I previously had wireless speakers which were battery powered and they were a pain, but running the wires and hooking this up to Sonos was amazing. They are fully sealed and silicone so nothing will penetrate the shell. They have a nice wire coming from them which was easy to hook up. I did have a outdoor volume control knob installed by a professional so I can turn them off if need be, but they sound so amazing I want ton always keep them on. The black granite is nice, it doesn't necessarily fit in with the other rocks, but for the price I am extremely happy!!

    Amazing sound

    I’m no audiophile but the music coming out of theses things sounds fantastic to my ears. I’m able to hear them even at the very back of my yard without having to blast them to the highest volume. We just had a new patio poured so before that happened I ran 12 gauge Monoprice direct burial speaker wire underground and hooked up to a Sonos Amp so I have all my speakers on one system. I definitely recommend! Picture attached to show depth of yard.

    Love these rock speakers by our pool!

    These speakers play well at several different volume levels in our backyard. We like to use them to fill in the background and have music, while people are still able to talk without yelling. Many people have commented on how nice the speakers sound.

    They are hooked in to a second zone that plays music by our pool. I am glad I didn’t spend over $1000 for an inground subwoofer type of backyard speaker system. These two speakers ($450 total cost) play bass sounds well all in a package that blends in with the landscaping. Very happy with this purchase!

    Good value, good sound

    For under $200 this is the loudest portable speaker that you can find. It has booming sound and a fairly easy to use interface. The FM mode is a little wonky as you can only auto-set stations and then rotate between them, not tune to a specific station.

    The bluetooth worked fairly easily to find and sync to a device. The battery life is decent, but suffers significantly, as most batteries do, in the cold.

    The rolling wheels are okay, but if you're taking this somewhere off of paved ground, like the beach, on a picnic, ANYWHERE you might want to take it, they wheels aren't big enough, or wide enough to handle the load. I've had much better luck attaching this to an external frame backpack with some ratchet straps.

    Great speaker for the price

    I usually don't write reviews but for this speaker I will. I bought this speaker having never heard of it before. I was looking for a speaker for outdoor get togethers and had been shopping several higher priced speakers. I've only had it a couple of months but it is a good loud outdoor speaker - easy to transport and easy to use. I've only used it plugged in and haven't tried battery usage - it also came with a microphone that people can use for karaoke. Bottom line - I'm happy with the purchase &I can't see anyone being disappointed in this speaker at this price.

    When I searched for wireless bluetooth speakers these came up on your website under that classification. When I received the speakers I found that they had to be wired to my main system. I returned them to the local store the following day because they were not what I expected when I ordered them.

    Took them back due to mounting system.

    They looked and sounded great mounted high on the wall in the store, but I had to order them to and so didn't get to examine them at the store. When I did get them they sounded OK but the mounting system they came with was too flimsy and not suitable in my opinion for an outside mount. So I returned them and bought another brand that sound better and a mounted solidly.

    Probably make good inside surround speakers.
