Yamaha NS-AW150W 2-Way Outdoor Speakers (Pair, White)
Yamaha's compact NS-AW150W bookshelf speakers provide an affordable way to enjoy your music or television programming on a deck or under a porch. You can bring them in during the cold months and set them up indoors, too: their high build quality and good sound lend them equally well to two-channel indoor listening.
The speakers, which are sold as a pair, each use a 5-inch high-compliance, polypropylene, mica-filled woofer and .5-inch PEI dome tweeter. The drivers are optimized for high rigidity but low mass, giving them reasonably high sensitivity (80 dB with 2.83V at 1 meter), another way of saying modest amplifiers won't have much trouble driving them. Their acoustic-suspension cabinets are sealed to prevent undue resonance or tubby, tuneless bass, which often results from low-cost ported designs.
With a nominal impedance of 6 ohms, the speakers will work nicely with amplifiers up to 35 watts per channel, nominal, or 120 watts, peak power. They boast a frequency response of 80 to 40,000 Hz (+/-3 dB), giving you decent bass output for their compact size and unusually extended high-frequency response for your most demanding digital media. For indoor use, you may want to augment their performance with a subwoofer to deliver deeper and more powerful bass; be sure to select one with a variable crossover so you can tailor its upper frequency to effectively "take over" at the point of the NS-AW150Ws' lowest deliverable frequency.
The speakers are magnetically shielded, so you can place them on or near a TV or video monitor without fear of picture degradation from their magnetic fields. Five-way binding posts simplify connection with several different terminations of speaker cable (including banana plugs), and the NS-AW150Ws even come with two lengths of cable to get you started.
While you wouldn't want to leave the speakers exposed on, say, the deck of a boat, they are water resistant and designed to withstand light wind and rain--a benefit of their sealed enclosures and rugged metal grilles. The speakers come with mounting bases and brackets.

These Yamahas are solid outdoor speakers. They are well built, but are not particularly efficient. I am powering them with a Pyle 2x75W amp, but wish I had more power or a more efficient speaker to drive a mid-sized church meeting room. We use this system to show movies or for background music during small social events. Sound quality is very good. My guess is that I'll get a bigger amp over time, but the Pyle 75w is fine for now.
Mounting is easy and any balance or leveling issues may be compensated for by the multi-adjustable bracket. (Note that the easiest option...the super-mount...is only possible if you have the main bracket, likely a component of costlier Yamaha systems.)
Upper and mid-range frequencies are handled with deftness and are characterized by the usual Yamaha sound in this price range: general favorable, with just a touch of brightness. The lows are a bit boomy, but that can be throttled back by emplacement and making sure your receiver's bass control is down a few ticks at 100Hz, which is very close to the speaker enclosure's resonance frequency.
With minimal installation time and effort, reasonable emplacement determination, and a few adjustments to your receiver, these are a great choice for any location where background music is desirable.
