Surface-mount patio speakers are a popular choice for bringing tunes to the deck or patio, and today’s patio speakers offer remarkably rich sound quality. These speakers are generally mounted under eaves and are designed with non-water-absorbing materials that stand up to harsh weather conditions. Like indoor speakers, patio speakers come in a variety of sizes. Most patio speakers are 2-way designs that divide the sound between a woofer and tweeter, but you can also choose 3-way patio speakers that include a woofer, tweeter and midrange speaker for a fuller frequency range. Power handling capabilities and speaker sizes vary from small , medium to large to fit different size decks and patios, and patio speakers come with swivel-brackets for mounting them vertically or horizontally.
