Strength:

all

Weakness:

A little pricey.

I listened to similar outdoor speakers bose, jbl etc. These speakers are great. They are very crisp and sound awesome. When I was young I dabbled alot in car stero and had Quart car speakers which are awesome. I would have to compare these speakers to the Quarts. Bose can not come close.

Strength:

Sound quality Ability to mount either vertically or horizontally.

Weakness:

None.

I think the speakers are great! I bought a pair for my backyard deck, and they can easily fill up the entire backyard with crystal clear sound as loud as you want it. Of course, I wasn't trying to annoy my neighbors, either. I've played everything from hard rock to smooth jazz, and it all sounds nice, which is impressive for outdoor speakers. I'd definitely recommend them.

Strength:

I guess the price isn't too bad.

Weakness:

Sound quality just isn't there.

I'm still letting them break in a bit before making a final decision, but they do not impress me at all at this point. Thin sound, no highs or lows. I'm comparing them to a set of Boston Acoustics Voyager 2s and don't like these nearly as much.

Strength:

crisp highs, musical midrange

Weakness:

a little light in the bass department

I am completely satisfied with the Outriggers. Coupled with a Polk passive subwoofer, I get a great, full sound I didn't think possible from these small speakers. Without the sub they are somewhat lacking, but with it, fill my 15' by 30' patio with clean, rich musical sound. It's a large patio with 15' high cathedral ceiling, and I just can't believe I get so much sound from these speakers.

I have Infinity RS-3 bookshelf speakers in the family room, and have been very impressed by the sound and the quality. I needed/wanted outdoor speakers for the enclosed pool/patio area. Went to Circuit City and Best Buy, and listened to several brands. Wasn't really impressed w/Bose...I liked the JBL's at BB, but went with the Infinity Outriggers at CC because I'm so happy with the RS-3's. The Outriggers are awesome! Easy installation...full, clear and rich sound, plenty of power also, (I listen to DJ/trance, dance).

Eric from Shaunee,OK gave these speakers a bum rap. I don't think the speakers are his problem....he needs to upgrade his wiring (from the lamp wire to Monster XP would REALLY help!), double check the polarity (+/+;-/-) and probably upgrade his amp/receiver (a 20 year old, 25 watt system won't cut it anymore!). Also, sometimes a volume control connection can also degrade the sound quality.

I know I had some 'fun' at Eric's expense, but these speakers are phenomenal. I have absolutely NO sound quality problems with these speakers. My only drawback was the price, $149.99ea is a tad high compared to some other brands, but after the installation, that's now a mute complaint. Yeah, I know, if I looked harder, I could have gotten a better deal somewhere else. I am EXTREMELY happy with my decision to go with the Outriggers. A definite high buy rating!

Strength:

Sound quality for outdoor speakers.

Weakness:

None that I have seen.

I thought these are excellent outdoor speakers. I have running through a Lexicon MC-1 and an Outlaw Audio 750 amp. Could use a little more base, but what do you expect for outdoor speakers. Would highly recomend.

Strength:

They look ok.

Weakness:

Hmmm....is it live, or is it Charlie Brown's teacher? Oh, I guess it's just crappy speakers.

I bought these via mail order to replace my stolen Niles outdoor speakers, and these pieces of worthless crap make me want to stay inside. These speakers seem to be equipped with some kind of filter that allows only the bad parts of musical recordings to pass through.

If, however, you like to listen to full, rich recordings in a stripped-down, nasal, devoid-of-any-semblance-of-musical-character form, these just might be the speakers for you.

Similar Products Used: Niles Audio....they were only similar in that they were white and weather resistant.
