Speakers for outside listening?

The other day I purchased a mint Denon DRA-397 integrated amplifier.  I had been looking for something to use when I wanted to listen to music outside while mowing, lounging, etc.

Now I'm trying to figure out what speakers to use.  I guess I could haul a pair of Heresys up from the basement every time I want music outside but I was hoping to get something that I could use solely for that purpose.  I wouldn't be leaving them outside so I don't necessarily need outdoor-rated speakers. 

I came across these on Facebook:

Apparently some have called them a "poor man's Heresy".

I was hoping to stay around $100 for whatever I get.

a used pair of Peavey SP1 but at the age they all are now a xover re cap will be manditory. be careful they will spoil you as they are better than a La Scala.The CH1 horns were designed by a couple of engineers who had left Electro Voice after Don Keele left EV. They are the real deal but they can be found for peanuts.

Shoot.  There was a pair of those near me really, really cheap recently.
