Great outdoor speakers


The speakers were mounted in my screened-in porch and connected by a sonos connect amp to my total sonos system. Sounds terrific! Couldn't be happier!

Great sounding speakers


I was impressed by the sound of these speakers. They sound great, delivering all the necessary highs and lows for all genres of music. I like the ability to swivel them to where I want the music. Very easy to install.

I was hoping for more for $400 compared to much cheaper speakers. I have a full set of 8040ST/8060HD/1000s for my HT, and was upgrading my lanai set up with these, but am going to return in hopes the 6500 deliver what I'm looking did. They sound good,...
