Is anyone aware of any WiSA-certified OUTDOOR speakers? I am working on an outdoor projector set-up for a backyard project and had my sights set on one of the LG 4K Cinebeam projectors - either the HU810PW or the AU810PB - which are both discounted $400 through tomorrow. Based on my application, I didn't see a good reason to upgrade to the AU810PB EXCEPT for the WiSA compatibility feature which could make a substantial difference in terms of set-up capability but 1) I don't have much familiarity with WiSA as I have mostly been focusing on a more standard wired landscape-type system and 2) I cannot find any WiSA certified outdoor speakers. If anyone has any specific WiSA experience or suggestions, I'd appreciate the input!

WiSA speakers are a great idea, but have a higher implementation cost and it isn't something I would use outdoors under almost any circumstances. The speakers themselves need high voltage power for the integrated amplifiers which are required. It makes far more sense to use traditional speakers as they use low voltage power which is safer in an outdoor environment and will be more reliable long term.

The electronics associated with WiSA speakers means that it may be many years before we see outdoor rated versions of the speakers.
