    Nice Little Speakers

    Pros: Good power handling, good mounts, good highs/mids

    Cons: Poor low end, weak IP65 connectors

    Great speakers for highs/mids. As expected they don't have much low end. Overall I am happy with the tone and power handling.

    Best Bang for your Buck

    Pros: Easy Installation
    Strong Mounting
    Very Good Sound for Price

    Cons: Limited Bass (for certain mounting positions)

    I've had these installed for a couple weeks now and have hosted a dinner/gaming party since. These speakers work very well for the price point. You'd be hard pressed to find a better speaker at this price point. I do agree that bass is a bit lacking but not terribly. I'd argue there's no WAY you could get more bass at this price. It is what it is. They do a great job getting the sound out there with good clarity and, ultimately, create the ambiance most people are looking for when entertaining outdoors.

    Tips of Achieving Good Bass Results...
    I mounted these (2 sets) on my front and back porch. On my front porch, I mounted facing inward where they could bounce off walls. The bass response is much more pronounced. On my back porch, I mounted under the soffit facing outward with less wall to bounce off of - the result, as you can imagine, is less bass. Think about your positioning before install. You can get really good bass if you position properly.

    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!
