If you own a home and prefer a bit of DIY work, the ideal choice is to install a set (or multiple) of outdoor speakers outdoors. They are larger than your typical Bluetooth speaker, meaning that they will deliver clearer, louder sound; as well as, you no longer need to constantly carry them inside and out of the house. They are very portable, which means that you can use them at parties, barbecues, or just enjoying the fresh air on your patio. To choose the right outdoor speakers, however, it is important to consider what type of sound and volume you are looking for. Also, it’s important to know whether you will want them to be used indoors or outdoors.
Outdoor speakers are available in many styles and varieties, but the most common types are mounted on brackets. These are commonly used outdoors, such as on patios or decks, but some are also suitable for indoor use. Outdoor speakers differ from indoor speakers in the way they are mounted and placed. For example, outdoor speakers that are mounted on brackets are often equipped with vibration isolation, which is important for preventing outside noise from affecting the quality of sound.
It is important to know that most outdoor speakers (besides Bluetooth) have a range of frequencies, which limits their ability to play anything within their range. However, if you are looking to play music or video, it is worth knowing which frequencies the speaker can play. Most will allow you to play music and watch TV with ease, but some will only allow a few selected frequencies. This will depend on the type of audio source; for example, if you intend to play music from your mobile phone/ FM radio, a radio will only allow a few frequencies.
The next thing to consider when looking to purchase outdoor speakers is the Woofer. The woofer can be positioned near the front or rear of the speakers for optimum sound; however, this often makes the speaker difficult to handle. The best speakers tend to be those with a larger woofer; therefore, if you need to carry and transport a large speaker, then it may be best to choose one with a smaller woofer. As mentioned above, the frequency of the speaker’s range will limit its performance. For this reason, many recommend using an amplifier to increase the power of the speaker. There are many quality amplifiers available, including those manufactured by Yamaha, JBL and Crest.
Finally, if you want the best sound quality possible, then it is worth investing in good quality speakers. The size and shape of the enclosure of outdoor speakers vary considerably, as do their specifications. For example, while many manufacturers make outdoor speakers with a 6.5-inch woofer, others can provide enclosures as large as nine or ten inches. In addition, some use shock-absorbers and sound dampeners to prevent external sound from entering the audio input system. On the other hand, some use rubber surround to help dissipate sound.
The final consideration in outdoor speakers is to ensure that they are waterproof. Outdoor speakers do not come with feet, thus it is important that they are placed on a sturdy surface and are not to be weighted down by anything. If the speakers are heavy, then they are most likely to crack or break, causing damage to your speakers and equipment. A reliable waterproof Bluetooth speaker is ideal as these speakers will not be damaged by rain, and they are highly resistant to rust and corrosion.
