Out of curiosity, I just recently pulled out the broken rock speakers from the junk pile and dismantled them to see what had gone wrong. It turns out that we hadn't been at fault at all, and they speaker components themselves were actually defective.
The awful "blown" sound we had been hearing was actually the result of severely cracked surrounds on both drivers that would rub and rattle with any bass notes. The baskets were also very rusty, which means that there was quite a bit of water leaking in through the cracks and seals as well. I do still have the speakers and shells in the parts pile, but they're pretty useless at this point.
I'm pretty disappointed as I usually expect better from Monoprice. The price is great, and the sound is (was) great, but unfortunately the pair I received did not last very long at all.
After reading some of the other more recent reviews, it seems others had similar issues, there may have been a bad batch that got sent out. I would hope they have caught the issue at the factory by now.
PROS: Great sound and great price. Fairly convincing appearance when disguised with plants.
CONS: Did not last more than a few months, started producing very poor quality sound.
PROS: Half the cost from big box store. Pretty good sound, easy to install
CONS: ugly paint, but it is supposed to look like rock
PROS: Great Price
PROS: Sound great. I put them out in my back yard and I love the way they sound, clean and crisp
CONS: They try to look like real rock but no.
PROS: - Easy to install
- Look great
- Sound great
CONS: - No terminals on speaker, you have to splice into the speaker wire provided.
PROS: Excellent sound/cost ratio
CONS: Frequency response could be smoother
