A little higher than the $125 it was prior.

There are some reputable third party sellers on Amazon that matched the price and are showing no tax for me.

This would make it not much more than the Fry's deal ... and you don't have to deal with Fry's. I think a lot of the people from the Fry's deal are still waiting for theirs.

So it looks like maybe they've been cheaper (basing this off of comments) but at this price I think that's a smoking deal. I have the 5's, and the only thing I feel they lack is more fleshed out bass response. I picked them up for $100 I think on a slick deal, and the sound quality is pretty great for outdoor speakers. If I didn't already have some, I'd absolutely pull the trigger on these. Nice find, OP!

I purchased these from Fry's for 125 + tax BUT have not received them & was sent an email that the ship date is "indefinite" This seems to be a good deal.

Can anyone recommend an inexpensive amplifier for these?

I'm looking to add speakers outside and have been waiting for a price drop on the 6's or 8's.

here is the receiver I was going to get. Also dropped $20 off the other day. Basic with Bluetooth and 2x 100W channels.

I was gonna buy these when Fry had them at $125, but figured I would see if they went lower during Amazon Prime. I instead bought 2 AW-6500's at $149 each and love them. Saw this deal, and thought, it is still a good price. So, got one to try at $139.

I like the concept of one speaker producing 'stereo'. In big open spaces, stereo is hard to accomplish.

This. Black speakers don't match eaves and are just begging to get hot.

Picked up two for the patio. I also got the Yamaha s202. The Yamaha puts out good mids and high. If you listen to music with bass you will be disappointed. Any increase in the bass on the receiver causes a weird rattling distortion out the bass port. I thought it was the speakers until I picked up the Cambridge SR20. The cambridge puts out better lows and there's no distortion.

I've used SMSL SA50 50Wx2 [amazon.com] to drive a pair of Yamaha NS-AW350B on my back porch since July 2015. I paid $65 back then. At $56 I don't think you'll find a cheaper solution.

The Atrium 8 is nice, but I prefer the AW-6500 for a big open space. The Atrium 8 has two tweeters, but the AW-6500 has two woofers. I am sure my neighbors prefer the less robust bass of the Atrium 8's

Or... they can just offer them in white at the same price.

That way it doesn't take my time, resources (paint) and it doesn't end up looking like a kindergarten project.
