RE: Compression drivers used outdoors

Some companies do make water resistant compression drivers but even these are not meant to operate with a horn full of water.
Your best bet is to keep them pointed down such that water will run out on it's own should wind blow it up in side.

At work where we sell loudspeakers for outdoor stadiums as well (our synergy horn systems are in about half of the 100,000+ seat stadiums here), we use a metal screen plus open cell foam behind it as a water diffuse, the water that gets to the open cell foam, collects and runs down and out.
