    any opinions as to the 'most' weather resistant / proof speakers ? I'm looking to use a pair on a deck environment with little or no coverage from the elements.

    Anyone have dealings with 'Outdoor Speaker Depot' ?

    I'm kinda leaning towards the 'rock' style or some other model that can be left on the deck surface.

    I'd like to keep it at or below $300 for the pair.

    Did you mount them under the eaves or on your deck ?

    price sure seems reasonable.

    They're mounted about 6 feet above the deck on the side of the house under the eaves. What's your outdoor area like?

    lovin, my area (deck) is a large L-shape variety. The problem is where I want to locate the speakers would be on the 'gable' end of the house, facing North with no protection. So they really need to be weather proof, granted they would come during the winter months and if I saw a bad storm a brewin'

    These speakers are relatively weather proof but I'd still add some protection, even a mini-eave/hood over the speaker to at least protect the wire connections. I never bring mine in, they stay outdoors. The mounts for these speakers are easily undone by hand, tho.
