This was a far better experience than I ever expected given that the only other option I had was to purchase another pair for $269 Cdn plus taxes.
2 thumbs up for Bose
These speakers have survived the weather quite nicely. One of the speakers gets pretty wet by the gutters overflowing when we have heavy rain, and they have both had snow on top of them, and they still work fine this Spring.
I am considering buying another set for my screened porch area. The only reason they don't get a "five star" rating from me is that the ease of installation also equals ease of deinstallation. I have yet to find an outdoor speaker that has locks or a special tool to keep them from being easily stolen. At this price I would like a little extra security.
In fairness, the speakers get 90 degree heat and Sun all summer and our Colorado winters are quite cold and dry... but that's why I bought all weather outdoor speakers.
Bose has been accommodating (the store where I bought the first pair wouldn't even replace the first pair), but this is just getting old. I'm going to try a different brand.
These are good, somewhat over priced speakers if you are looking for:
1.) Background music outside on a patio or deck.
2.) Music that can be heard at a comfortable level at a decent distance, but does not interfere with conversation (I really think that is the bose secret sauce...)
These speakers are bad if you are looking for:
3.) Really good sonic quality
I have a cheap pair of powered computer speakers inside the garage that sound better than the bose outside, but again, the bose are good for hearing the music at a comfortable level without the music interfering with conversation. Classical piano sounds great, rock and roll, samba or rap - things where you want some bass - just don't sound terrific on these speakers.

Amazing sound! Works great with our Bose sound touch amplifier.Published 3 months ago by Amazon TLKS
I have no idea why the reviews of these are positive. These speakers suck. If you like the sound of your favorite music played through a wet sock, by all means pick up a pair. Read morePublished 3 months ago by S. Bluhm
