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!

Yep... as promised... the wife and I both are surprised at how good these sound. The bass response is remarkable. We have the Infinity Primus Bookshelf speakers inside, and we can walk from inside to outside and the sound outside is better than inside... even though it's open and they are mounted up high. Very impressed by these speakers. We have SiriusXM playing thru a Dish Satellite Wireless Joey. While I was staining outside ... several days worth of it... I listened to these the entire time. They will jam pretty well too... they are not shy.

Thanks guys... it's my wife's "she shed" that "she said" to build for her after we sold our place at Gantt Lake... took me a little over 2.5 years to get'er done... working on it 1-2 days per week on average.
