Spring connections for speaker wires were not very strong and wires pulled out easily. Had to modify the setup to ensure the wires stay put. Also, the speaker description says they are water proof, but the literature that came with says water resistant, and recommends they not be left out in direct exposure to rain. Since the boat hasn't been launched yet I'll find out more after they go through their first storm. I did give them a 2 instead of a 1 because they look and sound good on the boat in the garage.
Retailers note: As we say in the description the speakers can handle splash and spray, but not submersion. We call that "waterproof" but some might call it "weather resistant" instead. We try to keep the definitions the same for all products on our website so customers can make fair comparisons. The manual specifically says the speakers can handle moisture, but of course the less water any speaker is exposed to the longer it will last.
