The Pyle PDWR30B 3.5" Indoor/Outdoor 300W Speaker Pair (Black) is a waterproof system that is ideal for use in marinas, on boats, by pools, patios and on decks. Made with heavy duty ABS construction, the speaker pair is tough enough to stand up to wear and tear associated with an outdoor, marine setting.

Factory packaging (only one layer of bubble wrap in a non-corrugated box) was woefully inadequate. As a result, although the outside of the product boxes were OK, the speakers came with crushed grilles and tweeters that had been knocked out of their ports (tweeters were not visible through the port and could be heard flopping about inside while unpacking). Adorama was not to blame, as they did a fine job packing. Given the cost of shipping them back, I decided to disassemble and repair the speakers. The grills are hot glued in place, and are a chore to remove. Once they were open, I found that rather than using a mechanical fastener to keep the tweeters in place, the manufacturer used hot glue only, so any impact can easily knock them loose. Furthermore, the hot glue was applied very sloppily, and covered part of the tweeter dome on all of the speakers. At the price point, I did not expect miracles, but the manufacturer should at least attach the internal components securely to the housing, prevent adhesives from coming in contact with speaker materieals and provide a reasonable amount of packaging to prevent damage. All that said, the speakers perform admirably as surround speakers for our small home theater, especially for the cost.
