Default Any decent drivers out there that are waterproof?

I need a decent system for my garden where we spent most of the weekends.

I've considered the DC Gold ones (previously BABB) but I suspect of a company that doesn't provide T/S parameters of it's speakers.

Any other options?

I'd rather have highish efficiency and full or wide rangers.

Thanks,

xavier

I don't know about DC Gold, but Babb did provide full T/S specs for their drivers. I've got a pair of 534s in the closet, and every once in a while I run WinIsd and dream about big boxes. Good luck - Pat

Excellent driver. Does well in an SBB4 box tuned to 40Hz. I'd cross much lower than 2k though. Pretty serious inductance in that woof.

I sell these. But they are full speakers not drivers. I wouldn't consider any of them audiophile quality but they do fill areas with sound.

I like the rocks myself. If I ever get the garden finished, some of those will be essential.
