    What is the plug that comes with them in the picture??? I have never seen them before??? Can they be wired to my regular speaker wire??? figure it is something with waterproofing
    Charles W on Mar 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's a connector used to keep it water tight. The connector has tails on it, so you can use butt splices or wire nuts to connect your speaker wire. Shrink wrapping or electrical tape would be good to use from there.
    Can these be wired in sequence with Crown XLS 1502? I need two zones of sound, with multiple speakers being chained together within each zone. I know nothing.
    Houston L on Mar 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The XLS1502 is 150W into 4 ohms. The monoprice speakers are 8 ohms each. If you wire two speakers in parallel (not series) you will reflect 4 ohms to the amp channel. That would work an sound fine. If you are trying to put a higher quantity of speakers on a single zone you should look into a 70V system (amp and speakers).
    We just bought a house which has these speakers on the patio. The raw RCA wires feed into the garage. What is the best way to connect these to an iphone / ipad?
    New User U on Jun 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have these speakers hooked up to my iphone. They need power as the one person posted so they need to terminate into a receiver somewhere. What I did was purchase a chromecast and hooked that up to the receiver. Now you can connect to that chromecast from your iphone and control whats playing and even the volume.
    Can the grills be temporarily removed?
    A shopper on Apr 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No, the grills can not be removed.

    Best Bang for the Buck PERIOD!!!
    I have been in the Home Theater installation business for 25 plus years. I have found Monoprice speakers to be on par (if not better) with high end speakers in this category. The build quality and sound quality are unbelievable for the price. I have not had a single customer complain about the Monoprice speakers even when they originally wanted name brand speakers to begin with. I have over ten thousand dollars invested in my personal home theater/house wide system and use these. What better way to promote a speaker then to use it yourself?

    PROS: Perfect speaker for the price.

    CONS: None

    Outdoor Speakers
    As usual Monoprice delivers quality at ridiculously low prices. I just wish they would come in a black option since my backyard fence in a very dark brown. Anyone know what's the best paint to use for these?

    PROS: Quality product and a great price.

    CONS: Only having White as a color choice forced me not to give it a 10

    Radio Shack Sound
    I'm not sure what others are using as a point of comparison when stating that these have great sound, but it has a harsh, tinny quality. It may be the weather resistant construction of the cones that impedes the sound quality, but they do not, in fact, sound great. If you are used to mid-tier speakers (Bose, Klipsch, Boston, Polk), you will be disappointed by these.

    PROS: Good workmanship and build quality
    Plug port connector is weatherproof and protects the wires from oxidation
    Easy to install

    CONS: Lower than average sound

    Best outdoor speakers
    Don't let the price fool you, these are the speakers for your patio or cabin, I had several jaws drop when I told people how much I paid for these rain proof little jewels. I just can't wait for Monoprice to start selling receivers :P

    PROS: Loud, easy to disconnect for security, great full range of sound

    CONS: White colour shows the dirt

    Perfect for the application
    These speakers are the perfect fit for my deck. For the people that have written reviews against the terminal connections, being in the electronics world for many years, it is my opinion that in an outdoor application it is important to not have any connections exposed to the elements. These connections are completely covered and never will i have to worry about bad connections over the years due to the weathering. I highly recommend this product and for the price it is unbeatable.

    PROS: Easy to mount
    Corrosion free terminal connections
    Good sound

    CONS: week on the bass

    Great Speakers, Great Value
    I purchased these speakers to mount on the back of my house on my deck. I also purchased a spool of four-conductor 16 ga speaker cable. Installation was easy, but the provided pigtail cables on the speakers require a little bit of skill to make a solid, corrosion resistant connection . I chose to solder the speaker cables to the pigtails and use heat shrink tubing to seal the splice. Other reviewers complained about the non-standard plug/jack connection on these speakers, but I like it because it provides better protection from the weather and allows for easy removal of the speakers if you need to paint or pressure wash your house. The only complain I have is the provided pigtail cables are black. The speakers and four-conductor cable I purchased are white, as is the siding on my house where I mounted them. Everything blends nicely EXCEPT the 3 foot pigtails. Fortunately, I was able to coil the spare up behind the speakers so it is not as noticable.

    All in all, they look great and sound great. I am very satisfied with the value provided by these speakers.

    PROS: Solid construction
    Sound great
    Simple, clean design

    CONS: Pigtail cable requires some electrical skill to splice to your speaker cables.
    Mounting knobs difficult to align, but work well once you get them threaded

    Great Outdoors Speakers
    I bought a pair of these outdoor speakers and installed them so that I could use them while entertaining on my deck or listen to tunes when I was washing my car or doing yardwork. These speakers are great! I have owned them now for several months and they look and sound brand new.

    The sound quality on the speakers are great - they are crisp even when turned up. If anything, I get nervous that I play the music too loud and the neighbors will get upset. There isn't a ton of bass but that can be expected with this type of speaker.

    I HIGHLY recommend to any audiophile that loves listening to music while outdoors. I have received many compliments from guests on them.

    PROS: - Great sound quality
    - Very easy to install
    - Awesome swivel feature
    - Waterproof hook-up
    - Stand up to harsh east coast weather

    CONS: - Not a ton of bass (which can be expected)

    Great Deal!
    My wife and I just moved into a new house and I was forced to sell my last house with my outdoor speakers included. I spent about 80$ for the pair and I got them at Bestbuy, they were one of their cheaper pairs. All in all I was happy with those, they worked fine and I thought they were a good deal. After installing these speakers from Monoprice and crankin up the volume I couldnt believe how much better they sounded the my old ones and they were half the price! If your looking for outdoor speakers you would be a fool not to buy these, you arent going to find a better deal.

    PROS: Sound quality
    easy to install
