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!

Amazing outdoor sound

 

I've been into high end sound equipment since an early age. These speakers were installed in our new tiki hut and exceeded all my expectations. They obviously cannot reproduce the extreme lows like a good sub will deliver, but they will out perform...

Great Outdoor Speakers

 

I have been pleased with their performance mounted outdoors under the 2' overhang. I have powered them with both low and high wattage amps, without having much issue with under powering them compared to other outdoor speakers.

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.

Hoped for more

 

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,...
