General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Outdoor Speakers Sound Degradation

Wow - thanks for the detailed reply, also to the other posters. In terms of scale I'm really just thinking "average backyard". I have no doubt I can find a setup that would sound great for my purposes, I'm curious about a discussion I had with a friend about outdoor environmental impacts. Assuming the speakers are a set variable, would a more "bushy" environment dampen the sound volume (break or absorb the waves) and would a pool for example cause sound to travel further?

I get that the actual impact may be very little to the untrained ear like mine, but in theory...?
