Outdoor speakers allow you to move your music with you into your backyard, the beach or anywhere else you want to go. Whether it is a quiet time alone on the patio or a day at the beach with the family, we can surround our ears with our favorite tunes.
For backyards, when using conventional, or wired, outdoor speakers this means deciding where they will be placed and then running the wires from the stereo system to the speakers. Wires will typically be buried underground or under the roof of the house or structure in the yard (like a large wooden shed).
The type of speaker should be considered before you start your wiring as it will affect where you place your speakers and therefore where you wiring will go. Speakers that are meant to be used on the ground should be set in a position so that the sound is not muffled or distorted in any way. Likewise, speakers that are intended to be off the ground should be set on stands.
When wiring your speakers, you should follow some sage advice. The first bit of advice is to avoid running the wire through a door or a window. Doors and windows open and close and the wire could be caught where it could be sheared off in a scissors like manner by the door or window. Instead, the wires should be run through the wall. After the hole is drilled in the wall, the wire should be run through the hole and then run to the speaker without too much slack in the line. The less wire exposed the better.
One big aspect of outdoor speakers is their resistance to weather. When purchasing speakers that are meant for the great outdoors, you need to make sure that your speakers will endure the first sign of moisture and cold. A popular type of outdoor speaker is the garden speaker which is virtually weatherproof. The speakers blend in with your garden, are easy to install and are generally affordable by most consumers.
There are many different types of these garden speakers. The garden speakers can be in the shape of real things or animals you would normally find in a garden. The speakers can be in the shape of rocks, frogs, lizard or mushrooms. These speakers are typically painted or colored to look like the real thing so that your guests will be unaware and the speakers do not stick out like a sore thumb.
When looking to purchase outdoor speakers, you can also go with wireless outdoor speakers as well. These will function the same way as wired speakers, but they will not require the work required to install the wires. The only thing you will need to keep tabs on is how far away the wireless speakers are from the stereo system.
Whether it is wired or wireless, outdoor speakers will allow you to bring your music with you.
