Acoustic Energy Extreme 5 Weather-Resistant Speaker : Great speakers, be careful who you order from

A pair of these now grace the space under the eaves and they seem to disappear and not stand out (which is a good thing). They sound excellent with a decent bass and a very detailed top end. The tweeter is the same size and type as the larger more expensive ‘extreme 8’. . Why have they fitted the ridiculous neutrik speakon connectors?. They are a major fiddle to fit and don’t accept decent (large) speaker cable. I have used other brands of outdoor speakers over the years (i tend to leave them at houses i’ve sold) and normal connectors are just as weather resistant. The speakers do come with the connectors needed (so don’t fear that you need to go out and buy them), but be prepared for a fiddlethese speakers are a moderately high price when buying a pair, however they’re well made and sound great.

Great speakers, be careful who you order from. I chose these speakers to go with a sonos zp120 and to provide music on my patio when bbq’ing etc. The sound is very detailed and the bass satisfying considering their size. I have to disagree with the other reviewer, i found the speakon connectors no more difficult to attach than banana plugs. I ordered these on monday from amazon seller ‘superfi’ and paid for express (1-2 days) delivery. On thursday i contacted the seller to see where they were and got an abrupt email back saying my order had been canceled as they had sold out.
