    Outdoor speakers for pool and patio

    Does anyone have any experience with these speakers?

    Amazon.com: TIC GS-3 150-Watt Outdoor In-Ground Speaker: Home Audio Theater

    I wanted to install four around my pool and two around a patio and hook them up to this receiver, that I will put in a nearby garage. I will use my iPhone to play music.

    Amazon.com: Pyle P2002ABTI 2000 Watts Hybrid Receiver and Pre-Amplifier with AM-FM Tuner/iPod Docking Station and Bluetooth: Home Audio Theater

    Thanks.

    Re: Outdoor speakers for pool and patio

    I have 4 of the GS-3 speakers around my pool I installed this past spring. I'm using an older Sony receiver and they sound very good. I've been happy with the purchase. I also bought an apple airport express to extend the wifi to the back yard and to be able to stream music over AirPlay from the iPhone or iPad from Amazon Music.

    i have also painted the speakers to blend in with the landscape because the green they come in wouldn't have looked that good where I was putting them.

    I thought my outdoor speakers sounded good until I heard these:

    Amazon.com: Definitive Technology AW 5500 Outdoor Speaker (Single, Black): Electronics

    You can find them for $99 occasionally at BestBuy or an Amazon sale. Really great sound.

    We bought two of the TIC GS-3 for the far side of the pool, and two Polk Audio speakers for the pavillion. Were very happy with both sets.

    I too have two of the TICs in addition to 4 Polk Atriums, 8 Polk 6" ceiling speakers in the patio and 16 others throughout the house. They are all powered by a Pyle 8,000W amp and our receiver.

    The TICs sound surprisingly good especially considering the price.

    We have 2 Klipsch AW-650's and 2 JBL's. Personally I think it's better to buy 2 very nice & capable speakers that will give you plenty of coverage- no need for overkill

    I went with Definitive Tech speakers along with an Insignia Bluetooth stereo receiver. I then added the Amazon Dot and everything is perfect.

    I've found more is better. Not volume. Number of speakers. Stage Presence. If you only have 2 speakers you'll have to really crank them up when a party breaks out. To the point where you'll one day get to meet Officer Friendly with a noise complaint.

    I have 6 speakers and 2 subs. 2 X OSD Audio RS840, 4 X Definitive Technology AW 6500 and 2 X Earthquake Sound Granite-10D Subs. Speakers powered by Yamaha RX-A3030 with 4 zones (4th used for HDTV at the bar). Subs by Polk SWA500M amp.

    The result is full pool coverage Voice/instruments with awesome Bass at a lower volume. Only 2 complaints over 3 years. I live in a retirement community (I retired early). Lots of cranky Old Farts around. No Problems.

    If you live in the country.... disregard all above. Party ON.

    Re: Outdoor speakers for pool and patio

    Totally agree on the definintive Technology speakers, I have the larger AW6500 Speakers, mounted against my garage where the passive bass radiator can use the garage wall as a reinforcer. A pair of these with a Sonance volume control gives me awesome stereo sound and separation with volume control independent of the source volume control. This is the way to go, as I a have another pair in my outdoor kitchen area, I can balance the sound between the two pairs, or not use one pair at all.
