What’s a better way to enhance your outdoor experience than by adding some great outdoor audio? Whether you’re barbecuing in the backyard, relaxing on the porch, or swimming in the pool, good music can make everything more enjoyable. In this blog post, we will discuss what to consider when choosing outdoor audio equipment and how to get the most out of it!



Is It Weatherproof?

One of the most important things to remember when choosing outdoor audio equipment is to make sure t it is weatherproof. You don’t want your speakers to short out after a few rain showers! Be sure to do your research and find something that will work well in your specific climate.


Is It Bluetooth or Does It Connect Directly to a Streaming Service?

Portable speakers are Bluetooth or have a streaming device built-in.  Permanent audio systems can be designed to play via Bluetooth, your outdoor TV, Amazon or Google devices, and even the music system in your home.


What Is the Sound Quality Like?

Of course, you’ll want to make sure that the outdoor audio you choose has great sound quality! This is especially important if you’re using it for entertaining guests or hosting parties. There are a few things to look for when checking the sound quality of speakers, such as frequency response, wattage, and impedance. Proper placement and spacing are a big factor in sound quality as well.


How Will it Power?

Portable speakers will require either electrical power or be battery operated.  Permanent speakers are wired (wireless options are available, but are not as reliable) and will be connected to an amplifier.


Where Will You Be Putting Them?

You also need to decide where you want to put your outdoor audio. If you’re looking for something to mount on the wall or ceiling, many great options are available. Pathways, planters, or around the pool are all viable options.  Speakers can look like pots, rocks, lights, or even be buried in the ground.


How Many Do You Need?

Another thing to consider is how many outdoor audio speakers you need. If you just want background music while you’re relaxing on the porch, then one or two might be enough. But if you’re looking to have music anywhere in the yard, then you’ll need several! A properly designed system will allow for a comfortable volume level to be maintained throughout your outdoor space – no more angry calls from the neighbors to “turn it down!”


Will They Also Have Lights?

Some outdoor audio equipment also comes with built-in lights! This can be a great way to add some ambiance to your outdoor space. If you’re looking for this feature, then be sure to check out the different options available.


Do They Match Your Atmosphere?

Last but not least, you’ll want to make sure that the outdoor audio equipment you choose matches the atmosphere of your space. If you have a modern home, then you might want something sleek and minimalistic. Or if you have a more rustic setting, then you might want something with wood accents. There are many different styles available, so be sure to find something to complement your space.
