Wireless Outdoor Speakers

Does anyone have experience with owning wireless outdoor speakers? I recently completed a 600 sq/ft patio that I would love to pipe either Pandora/TV/radio from my Marantz SR7005 located in my basement mancave. Not really worried if they would be battery or plugged in to a power source as I have either option available to me, however I'm not inclined to do a wire run to outside.

So far the only candidate I've seen that has good sound is the Soundcast system, however that may be overkill. Any suggestions or even more so experience with such an endeavor? Thanks in advance for your insight and time.

Re: Wireless Outdoor Speakers

I own 2 pairs of DUal outdoor speakers now for the last couple of years and they sound and hold up great... and they are cheap. These need to be plugged into a receiver though.

JZ -- Thanks for the input on your speakers, it's reassuring to know they are holding up (which is one of the main concerns for me on outdoor speakers). Unfortunately they need to be wireless as the wife will never approve me tearing up drywall :/ I do however have a spare receiver (or two), know of any outdoor waterproof enclosure for receivers?

Sorry, no. Even though I do have a setup outdoors, my equipment is in a "screenhouse".
