The application will be outdoors, but under roof with ample overhang. Mounting will be in drywall.
No direct exposure to sunlight or precip., but obviously exposed to fog and ambient moisture, bugs, etc.

Will the Klipsch R-2650-C's work, or do we need a true outdoor rated unit?

Who makes an outdoor recessed speaker of good quality?

Marlin guy,

If you have drywall outside and it has held up to fog, other moisture in that location, the Klipsch speakers you mention will be fine as they have weatherized components. I have had a H20 sitting on an outside fireplace shelf under a free standing, with three open sides, solid roof patio cover(30' x 16') for three years and no issues with it or the flat screen it goes with.

Set up:
Bonus Rm.- HR23-700 to Sony 70" Qualia 006 UMR calibrated w/Xbox 360 Elite
Denon 3808CI, Pioneer BDP-95FD, Toshiba HD-XA2
Polk LSi system, Velodyne SPL-1200
Office - H21-100 to Sharp 40" LCD
Master Bdrm - H21-100 to Sony 42" LCD Rp
Family Rm. - HR23-700 to Pioneer PDP-5080 w/Pioneer BDP-94HD
