    Let's be real. When it comes to interior and exterior speakers, your choices on which speakers to buy go on and on and on and on.... PLEASE...stay away from the speaker section that's out in the open and get your rear end over to the Magnolia room!!! BB has a Magnolia room for a reason....and that "other section" full of less than $100 speakers is there for a reason (buy an inferior product and you'll be back in a couple years buying another...aaaaand another - sorry BB, you are doing the right thing for the person who has a budget in mind, but the Magnolia room is the only place to buy GOOD quality speakers). You'll find the BEST long term, best sounding, highest quality speakers in the Magnolia room. Are they more expensive? Obviously! But, if you can understand the "once and done" method and if you live by it, you'll experience only the best...PERIOD. I picked up these speakers and installed them myself (for real...this isn't rocket science...anyone can do this...follow the directions!). Treble is phenomenal and the bass was surprising. Again, the guys at BB won't turn the speakers up full volume unless you insist. That's okay and all, but you need to hear the speakers at their best. The distortion that every speaker normally gets comes in at volumes that you will NOT listen to these exterior speakers at. I'm on the back patio right now listening to them and the sound quality is 2nd to none... I've had the others...Klipsch, Def Tech's, Polk, Yamaha... FINALLY, I was in a position to get the speakers I've always wanted and I'll NEVER look back! All the interior speakers are B&W's and now I have the entire house wired with the best that's ever been manufactured. Quality, clarity, durability, .... you won't be disappointed!

    Crisp clear richly detailed sound with warm full bass sound and they are not yet fully broken in yet. If you get to compare with other outdoor speakers and want the best sound, the choice is easy. Others may sound really good and then you hear the B & W and you know in the long run despite the price, the quality of sound gives you more than your moneys worth.

    Warm as it gets in a weatherproof monitor

    Because of the fancy diaphragm B&W designed, they have managed to produce a lot of low end out of a weatherproof/sealed monitor. these almost sound ported, but less than a fully ported box, maybe more like a passive monitor on the backside. Overall great sound, especially if you like exaggerated lows.

    I was looking for a speaker for my patio and I came stumbling on this Indoor/Outdoor B&W speaker. I read the specs and reviews but I was kinda hesistant at first because of the price, and I thought I give it a try. It struck to me the incredible detailed and balanced rich sound. Excellent choice. I never looked back.

    I was really impressed with the sound quality of these speakers. Clean sound, great bass. I use them outdoors but I think they actually sound better than my indoor speakers (which are high end)

    Great sound. Very pleased with purchase! Geek squad installed and these guys were the best. Cleaned up after drilling holes in stone to mount speakers. Couldn’t be happier with my choice.

    These speakers are great. They fill up my backyard with great sound. I think they are a great value, and the Geek Squad was great to work with to get this project done.
