Not sure they will fit your price point, but I am running Definitive Technology AW6500's and am very happy with them. I saw a used pair on eBay for $250.

I installed these at my father-in-laws:

I think they list for $350 but I bought last winter for $258

Where are you located? I ask because though there are some inexpensive models, they don't fair well in bad weather (such as where I am). $250 is easy though...Elan makes some good models that are truly all weather.

Hi Jason,


I'm in Colorado. While there is no sea-salt in the air, it can be pretty cold/hot and very windy where I'm at. They would be under a Sofit that has an attached canopy (though near its edges). Further thoughts?

I have two pairs of these in two different outdoor zones. They are unobtrusive, yet sound surprisingly nice. Bass is present and quite noticable given the right location. The design solution for protecting the wire connection is novel and effective. But, my bottom line was evidenced in the abundance of compliments I received during an outdoor party this past weekend.

I know this is out of your budget, but I highly recommend these speakers. I've seen them used in various outdoor locations with great ease. They have an excellent mounting system, as well as accessories that help protect itself over time.

You might be able to find a deal somewhere else if you look hard enough.

Hi Folks,


Thanks for all your insight. I found some Boston Acoustics Voyager 6 speakers for $220, so I thought I would give those a whirl -- given they're priced better than the market value.


Thanks,

Avery

Well, interesting story... at a price of $115, I wasn't sure if it was a per-speaker, or per-pair price. Most places seemed to sell them by the pair. When I asked the sales person, they told me it was a per-speaker price -- which still was pretty discounted.


Needless to say, two *pair* of speakers arrived at my door.


I ordered from thenerds.net; it looks like they're out of the white ones, but have the black ones still.


And, I found no indication that they're refurbished.


Good luck.

Thought I'd bump this thread to say I'm in the same boat.


I'm currently looking at either the Klipsch AW-650 or the Boston Acoustics Voyager 7. If anyone else has any further suggestions of what would be comparable to these two models, please list them. :)


(I've already taken the Polk Atrium 60's off my list... for some reason the sound seemed sort of muddy to me. I didn't really care for my Polk towers I bought a few years ago either, so maybe I'm just not a fan of their 'house sound.')

I'm bringing this thread back to life. I'm trying to decide between a pair of Definitive AW6500's and the B&W WM6 . Any insight would be appreciated.
