5-1/4 Inches 2-Way Indoor/Outdoor Waterproof Speakers (Pair) - 40W Nominal, 80W Max

What's better than a warm summer day than lounging by the pool with some burgers and hotdogs cooking on the BBQ and a cool drink in your hand? How about all of the above plus some high-quality speakers from Monoprice filling the air with some sweet, sweet music?

You don't have to put your speakers in the window to get good music in the back yard, nor do you have to settle for low-fidelity portable stereos. These all-weather, indoor/outdoor speakers from Monoprice are a perfect, hassle-free way to get your music outside, even when it rains.

I have been using these speakers for over a year and haven't had a single issue. The sound is great and they are extremely durable!

Hi bkoehn,

Thank you for your review on PID 6971. I truly apologize that the adapter is no longer functioning. If within the one year warranty, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement. If you would like to proceed, please provide the order number and I can get that setup for you. Sorry again for the trouble and I hope this helps!

Great deal

Pros: Price, value

Cons: None

These are good looking, good sounding speakers, especially for the price. You would have to pay 2x-3x as much for others that start to sound better. Light on bass but that is to be expected at this size, plus they seem to be sounding a bit warmer as they break in. My only worry is the plastic used in the bracket-to-speaker connection time will tell how well it stands up to MN hot summers and miserably cold winters.
