View Full Version : Any recommendations on outdoor / all weather speakers?

07-13-2007, 02:56 PM
I'm having someone install a small patio roof outside and he asked me if I wanted it wired for speakers. I hadn't thought about it, but that makes sense. Polk Atriums was my first guess, but if there's something out there that will go louder with more umph, I'd like to consider those. Any recommendations?

Also, any issues with the wires getting wet at the binding posts? Could that cause a short?

The Atrium 55's have a nice full sound, but after a fairly substantial break in. Mine didn't really start to turn the corner until I had close to 200 hours on them. I've always been a fan of the Boston Voyager series for 'inside sound, outside'.

Klipsch offers a couple of larger all-weather models that might offer more "dynamics". Also, there are quite a few "pro" audio type of speakers that are weather resistan and available in almost any size you could imagine..:)
