Default Outdoor speakers

Today I pulled my Speakercraft OE6 Three speakers down for a spring cleaning and discovered the surrounds are starting to crack. At the time I bought these, I was looking at JBL Control 31ís, but decided to get the Speakercrafts. These arenít bad at a distance of 10 feet, but are boomy closer up - probably placement more than the speaker. Iím feeding them with an older 120 watt Sony ES home theater receiver.

Anyway, Iím looking for suggestions for replacements. Lots of suggestions for outdoor speaks from several years back, but nothing lately.

The Sonance Mariners are really good. Available in three sizes. I have them in four outdoor zones and have been very pleased with how they sound.

Well I finally stopped procrastinating and bought a pair of Klipsch AW-650’s. $295 on Amazon.

They sound solidly better all the way around. Descent bass and much better mids and highs. Best of all, the boominess is mostly gone.

I should’ve upgraded to these a long time ago.

Breaking them in right now while enjoying a cigar and a bourbon.

It turns out SpeakerCraft have either a 10 year or a lifetime warranty, depending on when you purchased them. Theyíre replacing mine free of charge. Iíll wind up giving them to my brother.
