    Awesome speakers for the price

    I bought a house that was prewired for surround sound, and each speaker location had a wall plate where the wire was. I found mounts on the internet that allowed you to use the wall plates to secure a speaker on the wall, however, I wasn't set on what speakers I wanted to get. I also wanted to avoid using in-wall speakers, as you can loose sound in the wall, as well as I wanted to avoid sawing, and patching. I lucked out I and found these in an open box section of Best Buy. I looked at the back bracket and saw these would perfectly fit on a wall plate, with some rigging. I just bought some special screws at the hardware stores, and used metal washers to secure the speakers. The speakers sound fantastic, and are crystal clear. It even produces some good bass, if you don't have a subwoofer. These would do well for an indoor or outdoor installation. You won't be disappointed with the sound produced from these things!

    Super crisp highs, tight lows

    This purchase was not a disappointment. I was a little reluctant spending just over $100 for speakers that are sitting outside in the elements, but I am very glad that I bought these Yamahas! The sound quality is very very good. Tweeters jump out at you, and the low end hits with a nice degree of tightness. Ive pushed them pretty hard, and no clipping, no distorting. Yamaha has done it once again. My band's PA is all Yamaha Club V speakers, my home entertainment system uses all Yamaha speakers, and now my deck has Yamahas! All of which have impressed year after year after year.

    I purchased these speakers to put on my back patio. I wanted to get something that was on the lower end of the price range as we don't use them a lot. Once I got them hooked up, I was amazed at the sound. I am powering them with a small class-d amp that's hooked to an AirPlay device. The bass isn't the strongest I've heard in outdoor speakers but it's more than sufficient. Highs are clear and I've been able to crank them up with little to no distortion. Installation is a snap, I'd recommend these to a friend.

    Excellent Outdoor Speakers

    Small, compact but pack a punch with loudness and decent bass. You don't want to put on a rock concert in your back yard (darn neighbors), but these will do the trick if need be. Love their compact size and that you can get in white or black to help fit in with most home decor. Took about 5 minutes to replace/install each one where the previous speakers were and have not had a single issue. Bought these for the front of the house where speakers were placed and bought the larger set for the backyard where I can have a little more noise.

    I've had them for about a month. Installed on my garage for entertaining in the back yard. The speakers are good looking and sound good. I say good because they are not the Bose speakers that I have been putting up and taking down. The day after installing them, it started raining.. and raining, and raining. the speakers came through it perfectly (they are installed under the overhang but definitely got wet). I use them all the time and I am satisfied with the purchase. I rated 4 stars because they are not quite as punchy as I think they should be. Other than that they are as advertised.

    This was my second purchase of this Yamaha product. The first had been in my yard for about 5 years before my young son took a baseball bat to one and broke the screen off. Overall these are durable and have a great sound even at loud levels. Not the bassist things in the world but that’s okay. Be ready to run outdoor speaker wire. I bought a paintable type and used a staple gun to attach the wire to my deck. Overall I highly recommend this product.

    I received these speakers as a gift and was skeptical about the size and being able to deliver a decent sound outdoors. Was I ever wrong!! These speakers deliver such good sound with my sattelite radio and cd player that, for the 1st time ever, I have the bass and treble settings at 0 or neutral. I have had them 2months, installed under the eave of my roof about 10 feet apart and 15 feet from my deck. The sound is very well balanced and clean. I would highly recommend these speakers to my friends and family.

    I purchased these speakers because they were on sale and were from a company that has a good reputation for quality. My problem is that the speakers sound like inexpensive car stereo speakers. They're all mid range with not a lot of bass or treble. The same stereo is connected to a pair of 1980's Bose speakers that sound fantastic so it's probably a very unfair comparison. They work fine and I'll probably buy better ones in 2 years. If I would have listened to them in the store I may have made a different choice.

    My wife and I brought these for our covered patio, pool area. They sound excellent, very loud and good quality. For the price, we were highly surprised. I would recommend these to anyone that is looking for something simple and nice for their covered patio. We receive lots of complements from our friends, and it makes us use our patio and pool area much more.

    I listened to several speakers at the store and could not notice much difference in the Bose and the one at review. I have not tested its water endurance and will report back if problems exist per the one review. I can only play the speakers at 35% of max in my back yard due to the great volume. I combined the speakers wtih a 20 year old Sony Amp and WOW!! What a sound.

    We purchased 2 sets of these speakers on the "Christmas in July" sale. One set was to replace some old speakers so the wires were already there...took less than 5 minutes. The other set was just as easy to install after running wires in the garage rafters. The sound is great although it does lack some bass. I'm sure after some adjusting on the stereo it will be awesome. We now have tunes on all sides of the yard/garage and we love it! We like them so much that the next time they go on sale, we will pick up another pair!

    Had my kids stop and get me a receiver and speakers. They came home with the receiver that I wanted and these speakers, they were not what I wanted but installed them any way and am very excited and happy with them. They are much better than I thought they would be. Great sound for such small speakers. They are installed in my garage and can be heard over 100 years away and are very clear with out any distortion at the higher volume my receiver puts out very happy with these speakers

    Great Sounding Speakers

    I used these speakers as some beefy surround speakers for my home theater. While not the intended purpose of this product, they do provide a nice sound for rear speakers. While on the large side I did have to make a simple wood block to mount them too as I did not want them to stick out a lot like they would if you use a mounting bracket. Overall I am happy with them and they sound nice.

    I was having an outdoor pool party and needed to bring my sound system outside. We had a Yamaha tuner and speakers inside. We really loved our sound system and wanted to enhance it for outside as well. I was able to hook up my i-pod and play the party list outside. It wasn't too long before everyone was dancing and having a great time. Now that the party's over, I am still sitting on my deck by the pool and listening to music. I am so happy we got these speakers!

    We have them over our patio facing the backyard and the pool. We use them when swimming. We have adjusted them but there is a bit of a "dead spot" in the sound when you are about midway between the 2. We have adjusted the angle but maybe we just have them a little too far apart. We had Bose before and they lasted a very long time but one finally died so these are replacement. Aren't quite as good but works good for the money. Other than the one thing, they are fine. Good sound.

    Was a lil worried bout how they would sound considering how small they were. I was pleasantly surprised with quality of sound these lil things put out. Handles bass well without distortion. A breeze to install on side of garage.

    I needed outdoor speakers for my porch, and it was these or the comparable polk speakers right next to them. These won because they were an open box and about 40.00 cheaper. Pretty pleased with the ease of install and clarity of sound, which I took for granted since they are Yamaha. Next time around I would go with the next model up for the 6.5 woofer, these really don't reproduce the lows that well. Great buy overall.

    Purchased these speakers to replace smaller low end speakers that were distorting sound in my backyard when playing with othee 6” outdoor speakers. These speakers really complimented my outdoor system. Now thinking about replacing 6 other speakers with these. Nice full bass sound

    I purchased this pair of speakers to replace a pair of rock speakers we had used on our deck for more than 10 years. I chose to mount these under the deck in the same general area the rock speakers had been on the surface of the deck. I am pleasantly surprised with the sound quality and bass response from these speakers. I would recommend them to anyone looking to add sound to a small or medium sized outdoor area.

    Great sound from these little speakers. The have held up great to direct sun, rain and other weather over the last 10 months. Definitely worth the money for a reliable pair of deck or backyard speakers. Not built for strong base response, but that shouldn't be why you are buying these. I only push around 40 watts per speaker and they sound great (plenty loud enough) and no distortion.
