I've done this search years ago for outdoor speakers to mount to the back of our house and ended up going with the Klipsch speakers. While they have served their purpose, I have to admit they are probably over-priced a bit. So, rather than purchase those again to mount underneath our cabin down by the pond, I started searching around for something less expensive, but still of worthy quality. I found quite a bit of info on the RSL Outsiders, and ordered a pair: https://rslspeakers.com/products/rsl-outsider-ii/

These come direct from RSL with free shipping, and a 30 day trial with no restocking fee. Similar to SVSound... how can you go wrong. They believe in their product enough to offer a money back guarantee. So we'll see how they do. Once I get them in and get them mounted, which will be a few weeks since I still have to install the cypress siding prior to mounting them... I will then take a few snapshots and post it here.

Considering RSL's high praise amongst various a/v publications I'm sure these will sound better than fine : )
I can't wait for your thoughts!
