I am in the process of looking for new outdoor speakers under $600. About a year ago I listened to the Boston Acoustics Grand Voyagers and loved them, only to put off the purchase to this summer. Now they have been discontinued (with the Voyager 7's taking their place) and was wondering if there were any other speakers I should consider before making the purchase.

FYI: I live in NJ and while I could leave them up all year, I plan on taking them down in the harsh East Coast winters. Not that it makes much of a difference in the responses.


Any advice? Thanks in advance....

I would see what the Voyager 7's sound like before discounting them, especially since you like the sound of the other Boston's. That said, I just got a pair of Polk Atrium 55's for less than half your budget I really like and you could move up to the 60's for $400. It would be very easy to take them down for the winter, all you do is loosen the top and bottom mounting screws, leaving just the brackets.
I know enough to know I don't know enough!

Check out the AW650s from

These are much less than your budget but sound awesome.
