I live in Texas, and purchased / installed the speakers in the heat of summer. They handle the Texas heat and humidity of the coast well. No issues. Great investment.

Great sound

B&W is always a good brand. Just beware of buying open box items without having them tested from the store

Excellent Sound, Design and Finish.

I've installed several outdoor speakers from various brands and these B&W speakers are by far the best in terms of installation, sound, and design. These use a single swing arm style mounting mechanism with integrated wiring and terminals. The way they mount is very unique compared to other offerings. The overall fit and finish give a very clean install. Keep in mind that prior install preparation and technique will always yield a flawless installation regardless of the speaker choice. The sound is incredible. If matched to a good amplifier with adequate power these will more than satisfy your sound needs. For their size, they provide a great amount of bass projection and clarity. In part due to the bass radiator design on the back of the speaker housing and the shape/construction of the housing. While these are not inexpensive, you are getting a well-crafted speaker that meets and exceeds all requirements for an outdoor speaker compared to others in this category.

Excellent Sound for an outdoor speaker

The B&W speakers are on my patio. They are so smooth and pleasant to the ears. Anyone that comes in back yard from friends to contractors love the sound. An excellent speaker purchase.
