All About Outdoor Speakers

Jun 17, 2008
Outdoor speakers are those speakers that are portable and can be placed outside our home. Actually these speakers help to carry our musical interest outdoor without literally moving any music player with us. We can enjoy our favorite music sitting at the back of our terrace while spending time with friends and family. These speakers are good for outdoor projecs.

They comprise a plurality of advantageously located speakers connected by speaker wire to a stereo system. Typically, the speaker wire runs under the roof space of the house or other structure or is buried in the ground in such a manner that each outdoor speaker is connected to the speaker output of the stereo system.

Let us go through some of the recommendations while wiring the speakers. The speaker wire should be run through the walls and not through a window or doors because there is the possibility of creasing the cable and a risk of short circuit. The speaker cable should be brought through the exterior wall close to each speaker location. It is always better to use less wire outside the house. Always make sure that the hole from where the speaker wire exits is sealed both for the insulation and as an insect barrier.

While buying outdoor speakers, you should keep certain things in mind that will help to enhance the musical experience of outdoor speakers. The weather resistant outdoor speakers are a good option if you want them to be installed in the yard. This will ensure that the speakers will not seize up at the first sprinkling of water.

If you want it on the ground or out of ground installation then you must decide on which position you want to set the speakers. Some speakers are intended to be set in ground and they are mounted either on the stakes, or just atop the soil or plants. For speakers meant for deck, porch or patio mounting stands should be considered.

After one has considered the features, testing the speakers is a crucial step. The best way to test the outdoor audio speakers is to listen to them outside, since sound is distributed differently outside. It is advisable to carry a CD so that you can check the speaker while buying it. Comparing prices in various stores can give you an opportunity to buy the best quality of speakers at the lowest rate.

One of the most popular types of outdoor speakers is probably a weatherproof garden sound speaker. These speakers have a garden look with good sound quality. They easily get blended with the environment. The garden speaker enhances not only music, but also the look of the garden. These outdoor speakers are easy to install and come at an affordable price.

Currently there are various types of garden speakers that are quite popular. One can also find various kinds of such speakers that look like rock, teddy bear, mushroom, frog, etc. Let us get some details about these unique kinds of speakers. The rock-looking speakers are used in the gardens and look great with the color of natural brown rock. The frog and teddy bear speakers not only add spark to the music, but also provide a romantic atmosphere to the garden, as if it were the birthday party of the children.
