Energy Take Classic I/O 4 and I/O 5 Outdoor Speakers

Energy today announced their first-ever outdoor speakers with the debut of two budget-priced models: Take Classic I/O 4 (0.5-inch tweeter and a 4-inch woofer) and Take Classic I/0 5 (1-inch tweeter and 5.25-inch woofer). As weatherproof speakers, both feature UV-treated cabinets, rust-resistant grills, mounting brackets and five-way, gold-plated binding posts to withstand the elements for extended use.

The Take Classic I/O Series speakers are designed for maximum performance for backyard decks, sunrooms or other weather-exposed areas not suitable for regular home speakers. The white cabinets can also be painted to match any decor.
