    Visaton are a long-standing, reputable company. I'd doubt they'd sell crap but I don't know anything about these particular speakers. These appear to have both 100V line capability and standard hifi 8 Ohm connection which means you'll likely pay a little extra for a feature you probably don't require.

    You did say cheap...
    Studiospares are also a reputable seller of pro music gear and have some own-brand products such as these:

    https://www.studiospares.com/Headph...-Forte-BG205-Passive-Speakers-pair_248600.htm

    On the face of it, very similar specs to the Visaton but considerably cheaper. I've purchased some great value stuff, incl speakers, from Studiospares before so I know what I'd plump for.

    QTX have a range of outdoor speakers and, I would think, are more widely sold than Visaton. Not saying they're any better though:

    QTX Sound BC6V-B Black 100v Line Speaker 120W

    Moving upmarket, Acoustic Energy sell outdoor speakers too:

    Acoustic Energy Extreme 5 Outdoor Speaker

    Prices stated for speakers can be for a single item rather than a pair.

    Thank you. I bit the bullet last night and got the wb13. I got a pair for 70 quid with 5 postage which was about my budget. I will let you know what they are like. Their website looks reputable, i just cant see why there is a lack of info on the web. I thought someone must have reviewed a pair??

    That would be good. AFAIK, Visaton aren't a popular brand in the UK. Might be in their native Germany though.
