Speakers Built for the Wet, Hot American Summer

With the weather getting oh so nice, a lot of us are trying to spend as much time outdoors as we can. Those of us with yards get to enjoy the great outdoors while also having easy access to our music -- but what about movies?

Sure, a boombox can bust out some garden party beats, but what about using your yard to screen outdoor movies? With affordable projectors, that also feature DVD players, turning your backyard into a sit-in is pretty easy. Add some Mariner waterproof speakers, and you've got multiplex quality audio to go with your big screen production...

The Mariner, made by Sonance, are weather resistant speakers that aren't just ho-hum cones, they feature five to eight inch woofers and high-output tweeters. And for those with limited yard space, Sonance has made a "single stereo" model that reproduces stereo sound from a single loudspeaker.

Speaker wires feed through a sealed rear entry port to covered terminals up front, so you don't have to worry about ports rusting with humid weather. And a lifetime-warranty covers most weather-related damage, so left the chardonnay pour!

And if you want to try to camouflage your cones, you can buy a rock-like enclosure by Sonance.

We think this accessory would look nice within the pool theater pictured above.
