outdoor - HTD Q50's

559 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  ncst8wuf
I'm looking for some patio speakers. Somewhere middle of the road, not too expensive.

I've listened to the Yamaha NS-AW350's and the Klipsch KHO-7's. Where do the HTD(Home Theater Direct) Q50's fall in sound reproduction in comparison with these two?

I listen to rock, some jazz, and standards(Sinatra). My wife likes rap. The low ends are much better on the Klipsch, but I'd rather not spend close to $300 if possible.

HTD = solid products & great service. Will they be remakable? Nope, but they have few real flaws. Just a solid product line (note - I base this on experience with their indoor stuff)
I got some and hooked them up under the soffit by my patio. For $80 they sound AWESOME!!!!! I was suprised they even have a bit of bass :cool:
Thanks for the input.

You live in the Raleigh area, ncst8wuf?
I have a pair under the soffit over my deck. For 80 bucks, they are wonderful speakers. Well built and good sounding. The metal inserts for the brackets and speakers are brass and stainless, and the speakers have solid binding posts on the rear.
I have a pair of the previous version that I bought about 2.5 years ago. I feel they are a tremendous value, but the current ones are definitely better built and probably even better sounding.

I live in Wake Forest. Moved here from near campus.
