TIC Outdoor Speakers

Does anyone have experience with these? How do they sound? Do they last in the rain and sun?

Why buy the double pack? Why not single speaker with receiver and extension speaker?

They get pretty bad reviews on Amazon. The wired speakers seem to be pretty good, but these are questionable. I would think you would need the remote control to use them? Otherwise I agree with buying just the extensions, but I’m not going to buy any of them…

Must be referring to Neil Sedaka’s song since the LedZep one was 2 years into the future.

Here’s the link from a past round with these speakers. Including commentary from a Tic Tech:

wow the 5" extension speaker really dropped in price since the last time they were on here. $70 the last sale. $30 this time.

I can vouch for the wired TIC speakers FWIW…I’ve had them outside for 3+ years in sun, rain, sleet, humidity, cold no problemo. Can’t speak for heavy snow though.
I also have a similar receiver/amp. It’s OK too, only rear jacks are spaced v closely together.

How can I get this to work with my iphone? I have called TIC numerous times but am unable to get a call back. Help!

Mine just came in, I ordered the extension and the “primary”. Sound very good. The transmitter is in my basement in my mechanical room with my other AV equipment and they are having no problems. Also ventured outside with one and no problems. Havent ventured to try these with the batteries yet…
