Best Outdoor Speakers
Whether you are grilling in the backyard, relaxing in your pool or hot tub, gardening or simply enjoying the spring time outside, music makes everything better.
With technology improving every season, you can now purchase really small and sleek speakers for your listening pleasure. Gone are the days of huge speakers that take up all that space. Now, small speakers you can tuck away easily provide crisp, quality sound.
The outdoors provide a much different listening environment than inside your home. If you have been to indoor and outdoor concerts you know this first hand. Here are a few things to take into consideration when choosing your outdoor speakers:
- Do they stand up to the elements? Colorado has all four seasons (sometimes in the same day) and weather and conditions vary dramatically. Make sure your speakers are going to last through all of the elements. Most manufacturers recommend placing them in a protected area, such as under an awning or porch roof.
- Do they provide enough bass? With the sound able to go everywhere, and much more background noise than indoor, be sure your outdoor speakers do not dilute the sound too much. For best sound, select speakers with low frequency--60Hz or below.
- Do you prefer wireless speakers? Depending on your yard setup, you may want to opt for wireless speakers. These are flexible and easy to move around.
- Do your research. There are so many options to choose from when it comes to purchasing your outdoor speakers. More options are available online, but brick and mortar stores offer the chance to try them out before purchasing. Go to your favorite local store and ask for recommendations on best sound quality, durability with environmental elements, and the best deal. Then look online to compare features and prices. This will give you enough information to make an informed decision on your purchase.
There are so many varieties of speakers to choose from: Wireless, mountable, table top models, water resistant, and more. You can even get speakers that look like rocks to blend in with the atmosphere of your outdoor living space. Decide what factors are most important to you.
Bring your party outside with some great outdoor speakers this spring!
