Default Outdoor speakers


I am looking for a decent pair of outdoor speakers for under $100. Does anyone have any experience with Yamaha? I'm leaning toward their speakers...

Well, this is a DIY site so have you considered making your own? If so tell us what you want them to do and maybe we can help.

My mistake, I assumed this was just a general audio site. I am not interested in making my own speakers, though that does sound fun.

for outdoor use, I'd be looking at the cone material to see if it's durable, e.g. polypropylene or carbon fibre. These aren't usually Full Range though. (However, I've known paper cone drivers that are under cover to last well, as long as they don't get wet...)
Impedance varies with frequency, use impedance plots of your drivers and make crossover calculations using the actual impedance of the driver at the crossover frequency
