Lots of us have tunes outside and you wouldn't know it. Or if you do- I have come over and talked to you first. I've been asked to "turn it up" without sarcasm before.

I have regular FR speakers outside, but am considering replacing these with high end marine ones

Relaced the factory ones with these. The sound is great. Notice they are aimed down. seems to keep the sound in my area.

Do you remove the while traveling? What did you do with the holes from the stock outside speakers?

No we don't remove the speakers. They only extend 1 1/2 inches out beyond the awning. For the 3 seasons they have been there there has been no issues and I don't see where there will be. The holes where the old outside speakers were I covered. If you look at the picture you will see a white plastic board. I when to Bed and Bath and picked up a cutting board. Cut it in half, sanded the edges and bolted it on the side. I used plenty of caulk and stainless bolts. The bolts extend inside and end up in a set of cabinets where there are nylon nuts and big flat washers. If you need more detail let me know and I can send some more pictures.

Just get your favorite sounding speaker that is a poly cone and all will be golden!

Not quite...you need a poly or other synthetic cone + a butyl rubber surround + a plastic grill.
Polk db651's would be a good example of a good sounding auto speaker that can also be used outside or in marine situations.
Polk Audio db651 6-1/2" 2-way car speakers ó for 6-1/2" and 6-3/4" openings at Crutchfield.com

Most people would never be able to tell that an audio stream is Bluetooth A2DP, unless the device started losing connection. A2DP typically provides audio anywhere from 200kbps to 328kbps, depending on quality, which is dependent upon the version of bluetooth being used by both devices, as well as bluetooth signal. Your typical mp3 file is encoded at 192kbps, and higher quality versions are 320kbps.

Don't knock bluetooth audio until you've tried it.

Interesting wasn't aware of that, but you would still need a power source for these bluetooth speakers
