Patio Speakers: Are they Worth investing into?

After picking up some of the best boxing gloves I have ever seen in my life (for those that dont know, I am an avid boxer whos life is not solely related to speakers), I came across a pair of patio speakers. Car audio has been my passion for years but noticing the patio speakers when shopping for my boxing gloves, I suddenly and unexplainably became very interested.

If you find yourself moving your stereo equipment outside to your patio every time you are entertaining friends, it may be time to shop around for patio speakers. Patio speakers are simply speakers designed for outdoor use.

Patio speakers should be waterproof and weather resistant. They have to withstand extreme temperatures and climates. Some units may have special weatherproof case or seal for protection. Because of this feature, you can place patio speakers safely near your pool. You can leave them outdoors and you do not have to worry that the elements will damage them.

You should be able to adjust your patio speakers or move them easily to get good coverage. You also want clear and high quality sound and a good mid to high volume range. Outdoor speakers or patio speakers should have good bass for optimal sound output. For average outdoor use, one speaker with 100 watts of sound may be enough. Two patio speaker systems will produce a stereo quality. If your patio has many features like landscaped walls, foliage and other architectural structures, you may need to consult an expert to determine the best speaker layout for your patio.

Some add subwoofers to their patio speakers system to achieve a full sound. You can also look for patio speakers that you can hook up with an amplifier system in your home. Consider using a waterproof cable for connection. Most patio speakers have watts ranging from 60 watt to 300 watt. The higher the watt, the louder the volume can go and the better the quality of sound even at a lower volume.

You can mount patio speakers beneath your patio roof or you can look for designs that come with a base so you can place them securely on the ground. Your patio speakers should come with an installation guide so you can install them yourself. Choose a unit that is easy to install and, if you are unsure about installing your unit, it may best to have a professional install for you.

The price of patio speakers varies like most audio products. It can range from fifty to three hundred dollars. Obviously, the cost depends on the features that the speakers have.  High definition patio speakers will cost more but they may be what you need if you will be hosting frequent dinner or barbeque parties in your patio. Therefore, beside the price, you have to look at the features that will best match your requirements.

What to do when your favorite Car Speaker goes on sale

Car stereo sales happen at audio stores regularly. When a car audio manufacturer launches a new product, the prices of prior models drop drastically which may prompt the store or the brand name to initiate a car stereo sale. Most especially when a new technology comes out, a good example would be like the introduction of the Compact Disc technology, suddenly all cassette player car stereos became dirt cheap, no matter how cool that LED display might be.

Another avenue of car stereo sales are at expos and conventions. Most of the time, the good stuff come out at expos’, whether it be a car expo, audio system expo, but usually the largest car stereo sale happens at a gathering of car audio manufacturers. Well, at these kinds of expos’ and conventions, it’s not usually a sale because the manufacturers usually try to get buyers for their newest product. If you have the money and you’re out there to buy some serious hardware, then by all means, SPLURGE AWAY!

But first you have to know what it is you want to buy. Don’t go running off to a car stereo sale without knowing what it is your system needs. There are a lot of items in a car stereo sale, shiny, glittery and LOUD items that might get your attention but don’t let it tempt you to whip out your wallet just yet. Although most car audio enthusiasts need not be reminded of this (because they know their stuff well, it’s probably all they think about all day) any car stereo sale newbie might get the itch to impulse buy, especially when the item displays high wattage. Or even if it just looks spacy and high-tech.

When planning to go to a car stereo sale, you have to prepare, prepare, PREPARE. Take a good look at your audio system. What does it need? Do you need a complete overhaul of your stereo system? If it doesn’t really need anything but you just want to take it up a notch and upgrade it, make sure what you’re planning to buy is compatible with your existing system. Don’t but a high watt bazooka speaker if your amplifier can’t handle it. Although audio parts like these have very high resale value, save yourself some trouble and buy the right parts. You don’t want to end up buying a very expensive paperweight.

Also, do what other enthusiasts’ are doing. READ MAGAZINES! These car audio magazines contain reviews and price listings of the items you may be looking for. You’ll also get acquainted with products you might have never heard before, it will surely open up your choices and options.
