Title: New Outdoor Speakers
Post by: Towndrunk on April 11, 2017, 03:30:28 pm
When I built my house I ran some speaker wire so I could have some speakers on my back patio.  I am really happy with my Definitive Technology AW6500's that I have mounted on the house, but I was looking for something that I can put a little further away from the house.   Sort of fill in the back yard with audio.

I have been looking at getting some more 6500's, but I would prefer something I don't have to mount.  I have been looking at rock speakers as well as some In-Ground speakers.  I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations.  Of course I don't want to go to to cheap, but cheaper is good.  I don't want to spend more than $500 for the pair, but would rather stay closer to $200-$300 if possible. 

So far I have these three that I'm looking at.  I would like to use these for my screen when it is up as well.  I have it all connected to my Sonos, so I just stream my laptop to an input on the Sonos, then play that input on my "Patio" speakers.
