RE: Outdoor Speakers Sound Degradation

I have a pair of Yamaha outdoor speakers that are maybe 10 years old. Initially, they were in a protected spot. After we moved and built a trellis patio cover, they've been sitting on top of it, totally exposed for 4 or 5 years. Yeah, the black grills could use some rustoleum paint, not that anyone can see them.

As far as sound, I'm surprised. These were a model with 6.5" woofers and the sound is exceptional and can be played plenty loud enough to annoy all the neighbors before they'd hit the wall on being over driven.

Update: I just asked my son and his buddies that are playing beer pong out back, and they agreed, sounds great. Both of us were also amazed that they even work after all the poundings of rain and sun they're endured over the years.
