Default Outdoor Speakers for yard

Anyone have Bose 215 outdoor speakers? I just bought a pair, but want to feel out the crowd before I install them.

Some people seem to like the atriums.

I hate forums for this reason.

Just got the Polk Atrium 45's and 60's. Sound great! Haven't heard the Bose, but today with the internet there is equal amounts of bad reviews to Bose never ending propaganda marketing.

I've had a pair of Bose 101's for 25 years now! They were installed in the basement of my fraternity house for 4 years and survived a plethora of abuses. From there they installed outside for 20 years and have held up just fine. They are now in Maine installed outside my dad's house and I expect them to last forever.

I bought a pair of Yamaha's on ebay for $100 bucks last year and they sound great. Having said that, I have BW's in the house and they are the shit. I wanted to put them outside, but didn't see the point in putting $500 into outdoor speakers.
