that's the first thing I thought, but would you want your 100 dollar set of pioneers crushed by a boulder...

Cool idea. It could be a 6.5 tho. Once again geat idea, but why you would want speakers outside your truck is beyond me.

get a good set of marine speakers and some 6" light housings, then make your own set with a decent set of speakers. pyle is a waste of an attempt.

Just buy some Bose speakers that look like rocks and set them up in your favorite off-road camp site. Then you dont have Pyle speakers or open doors!

Yes, they hold up.

Yes, they sound awesome.

I don't even use marine audio stuff (er, I mean car audio painted white) crap. Have done 3 or 4 complete boat stereos this year, will be doing 2 more over the winter. I do this professionally and have tried a lot of ideas and combinations.

I totally agree. Just because the cone is poly and waterproof doesn't mean the center dust cover, or surround, are that way. Marine speakers, designed for a good soaking, would be the way to go.

My lights on my front bumper have been fully submerged briefly, and pilingup water in front of the truck -- that's an AWFUL LOT of pressure on any speaker, and I question would any of these hold up then. Probably belong on your roof or something. It's a neat idea for a PA speaker, but not on the bumper for sure.

They wouldn't survive as a PA speaker, they don't have the power handling or the sensitivity to be able to produce enough decibel-age to be heard from more than 10 feet away. Plus if you put more than 15w on those they're gone!
