    Any suggestions for my outdoor speakers? (2) Need to stay under 200. I have a Yamaha rx-v1300. Thanks.

    HTD has Level Two outdoors for $59 a pair. I also recall seeing some site, Oudoor Speaker Direct, I think, that had some decent looking models with good specs for good prices. Also look at the AR Edge Pro's at Acc. 4 Less. Good Luck.

    I am using the HTD Level 2 Outdoor speakers . They sound just fine. I have had them for the last couple of years. At only $59, they are a bargain.

    The only reason I'd lean towards getting the Russounds is the fact they are fully sealed in the back. If the speaker is totally exposed to weather this might be a potential issue.

    The HTD ones look like a bargain but I'm not so sure..Still for that much if they crap out so be it. It's only a $120.

    Parts Express has a large variety at a wide price range, but I don't know about quality.

    Harmanaudio.com has some JBL's for less than $200. Might be worth looking into.
