by the way coytee, what kind of speakers are u using in the outdoor cinema and where u happy with them, could leave them outside all year (like in rain or snow ?)
Those are Klipsch MWMs (s for single height cabinets, or something like that)
They are the same thing in the picture in the link I posted....except he's got tons of them verses my pounds of them.
I do not think they are for permanant outdoor installations unless you can perhaps cover them. The units I have are trimmed with aluminum as you can see and they are also covered with fiberglass which helps weatherize the but... I would never willingly leave them outdoors. I always pulled them into the garage using the front loader of my backhoe. They're very cumbersome to move unless you "roll" them end over end or "walk" them from corner to corner.
The double bins weigh something like 300 pounds or more (?) and the singles are about half. You can find them with handles or without. Handles come in VERY handy if you value your fingertips!!
Was I happy with them?
My house is on a lake. I live on the poor side. Across the lake is a retirement community, many of them are from "up north" (as I am). Many of them are from Michigan, I'm from Ohio. Although I never got into the Ohio State/Michigan squabbles (I went to a different Ohio college), I do have some Ohio State marching band music.
I put the CD on, turned it to 11 and let it rip. I wanted anyone on the other side to think I had the Ohio State marching band practicing in my field.
They are quite formidible and in my opinon, the foundation of an excellent system however, they are only bass bins. Getting the rest of the parts can be difficult and/or expensive. They are however, made to boogie outdoors. Since they're horn loaded, they can play quite loud and sound good doing it.
