    Seem to recall it is not suited to long sun exposure, but if it is shaded on the porch shouldn't be a problem

    I agree, don't leave it in the sun as UV light is the main suspect (at least mine) for causing panel surface degradation and stickyness. The electronics heat themselves up pretty well even in standby so I wouldn't consider moisture a big concern in that area. Keep in mind though that the bass woofer membranes are basically stiff paper with a bit of coating. I would not assume they are too fond of moisture. Certainly advisable to check them once in a while.
    And I don't need to mention what the user's manual says - or doesn't say - about outdoor use, right?

    If I am not mistaken the Radios fare better outside
