This is a reasonably good inexpensive speaker that performs well for casual outdoor listening. I have a pair of them on my deck and they are perfectly fine for filler music during a barbecue or while enjoying a glass of wine in the evening. They appear well built and sturdy and have tolerated our hot and humid Florida weather without showing signs of degradation.

While upgrading my 7.1 system, I tried them briefly as rear surrounds. Suddenly, what had sounded fine in the back yard was woefully inadequate in a good sound room. Thin, inarticulate, and slow when placed alongside my Paradigm Signature system.

So...good for elevator music type applications but not up to par for any kind of critical listening, either audio or home theatre.

I have a pair of Boston Runaboat 2's and I am very pleased. I looked at the Bose Indoor/Outdoor stuff but it is slightly muddy as they often tend too be. I also looked at the Polk Indoor/Outdoor stuff. It just didn't have the quality and sound I'm use to. So, I bought the Voyager and am thoroughly impressed! Boston is the leader in Indoor/Outdoor as far as I'm concerned. I also bought the Digital Media Theater system for my computer and I gotta tell you. Move over Harman Kardon and Altec Lansing. Boston is tight and very clean. I have always bought Klipsch but my next pair for Home Theater will be the new powered Boston's..... So, don't look any further or shall I say listen any further...

I was looking for a high-end outdoor speaker and the Boston Acoustics (BA) Voyager was recommended. This is my third pair of BAs and as usual, I am very impressed. They actually gave my BA PS9s and Allisons a run for their money especially in the mid and high ranges. I suspect that the Voyager has the next generation tweeter. They handled my 200 watt Adcom amp with no problem. Although they do not have the bass of a full size speaker, they do fine. The cabinets are made of Lexan and they are very very solid speakers.
I would recommend spending the extra money for these, I have a pair of Bose 151 outdoor speakers and do not come close to the Voyager

Strength:

Construction

Weakness:

No bass, not very efficient

This speaker's ok if you want background music outdoors, but if you really want the back yard rocking, or you want really good sound, it's not up to the task. This speaker has no bass at all to speak of. Considering the woofer's 5 1/4" and the specs only claim a low end of 70hz, I suppose that's to be expected.

It also takes quite a bit of power to get any reasonable volume out of them.

I got them for $200 a pair. I suppose for that price they're not too bad. If I'd paid any more, I'd be pretty disappointed.
