In addition to enhancing the listening experience both indoors and outdoors, the speakers establish a new, meaningful product category for the brand to further diversify its offering.
The Take Classic I/O Series speakers are designed for maximum performance for backyard decks, sunrooms or other weather-exposed areas not suitable for regular home speakers. The white cabinets can also be painted to match any décor.        
As weatherproof speakers, both the I/O 4 and I/O 5 feature UV-treated cabinets, rust-resistant grills, mounting brackets and five-way, gold-plated binding posts to withstand the elements for extended use. The Take Classic I/O 4 is an indoor/outdoor speaker with a 0.5-inch tweeter and a 4-inch woofer, while the Take Classic I/O 5 boasts a 1-inch tweeter and 5.25-inch woofer. With the addition of dual M6 threaded inserts, the versatility of the speakers is nearly limitless. 
“This product launch is very meaningful as we remain focused on developing high performance sound solutions capable of meeting any listening need that is relevant to any part of the home,” said Tommy Jacobs, director of customer development for Energy. “We look forward to entering this particular market with these exceptional products, and we are confident the experience will lend to future developments for the Energy brand.”
The Energy Take Classic I/O 4 and I/0 5 retail for $99.99 and $149.99 (U.S. MSRP) respectively, and are now available at authorized retailers.
