So I'm thinking about wiring in some ceiling speakers into my gazebo. The ceiling is cedar car siding with some decent clearance to the rafters, so if I need to box it, I can.
Is there a brand that someone would recommend? I'm actually considering using a good set of 4 6x9's from the car audio side of things and building boxes around them.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I don't really see why you would do that when there are so many speaker models specifically built for the outdoors. Unlike car 6x9's, they are sealed against moisture and are "voiced" for the outdoors. I would check into the Boston Acoustics Outrigger series or Polk Atriums, each start at $200.00 or so a pair.
I know enough to know I don't know enough!
