I know this "ain't got nothin' to do with them there computers" (hey, i'm a Texan, ok?) but do any of you know if I can use just regular indoor speakers on my patio? I know the older ones were subject to extremes in temperatures-the cones would crack, the surrounds would deteriorate quickly, but not that experienced in the new materials out there. All I have ever run is indoor sound equip. The patio is 30x30 and the speakers would be shielded from rain, but not ambient humidity. Any thoughts on that. I was out of the country on assignment for most of '91 - 2011, so got behind on the tech.

as long as the cones are not made of cardboard and not mounted in a wooden box, which most are not in this present day and age.   if they are new speakers in abs plastic boxes i would think you'd be just fine!

Ok! 'ppreciate it. I was concerned about the high humidity we many times have in N Central Tx, Dallas area. As you said, the new plastics would be ok. I'm still sorta stuck in the days of heavy particle board and the old paper cones. When I got assigned to middle east/ western Europe many places still had rotary dial, if that. So, still playing catch-up. The programming I learned was CobAL and Fortran. That was what, Neolithic era?
