Outdoor speakers

Need some advice from you stereo aficionados out there

I have a detached garage that I have build to look like a pool house ... Porch faces the pool

I want to add some outdoor speakers facing the pool area ... I have a pair of Polk Atrium 4 speakers inside the garage that sound good ... Same thing for outside or any other great recommendation?

I like the Klipsch, but they may not fit in your landscape plan. I too have Polk Atrium on the deck. Good speakers but not much bass outside.

I'm also looking for patio speakers and the Definitive AW6500 seem to get rave reviews all around. Watch Amazon, the prices have been going up and down in past weeks - I have them in my cart and they've gone from $199 each down to $149 each. Currently @ $159. As soon as I figure out how I am getting wiring out to the back of the house and where to mount, I will pull the trigger on them.

I've used Jamo outdoor speakers and am very happy with the sound. http://www.jamo.com/custom/outdoor/?sku=I-O3A2

+1 to the Klipsch AW650 @ $400 pair. Reasonably good bass and midrange, especially for an outdoor speaker. They are a bit larger than most weak sauce outdoor setups.

This. I ordered mine last week from Amazon for $135/each and free shipping. I did the black because the white speakers don't seem to hold up as well outside.
