The Speakers You Need For Your Outdoor Area


With summer well and truly underway, everyone is bound to be hosting their friends and families at one point or another. Be it a cosy evening by the barbeque, a heavy pre-drinks, or a lazy day by the pool, one thing remains a constant; the music. 

Music doesn’t only bring people together, it sets the mood and ambience of almost every imaginable situation. It can well and truly break or make any social gathering. With that being said, you wouldn’t want to risk your old dingy speaker to ruin a potentially extraordinary atmosphere.

Here at Gadgets, we are willing to offer you that much needed helping hand. We have found the best speakers that suit your musical needs, all whilst continuing to suit your financial ones!

Polk Atrium 4 – Best Priced

The compact Atrium 4 loudspeaker produces high fidelity sound quality anywhere you want great sound. Its small size and one click speed-lock mounting bracket makes it ideal for outdoor installation, managing to squeeze itself into tight previously unused space whilst still delivering a sound that is crisp and bassy! 

Included in its build is an aluminium weatherproof grille, ABS cabinet and brass terminals which means that withstanding the elements is a cakewalk for this robust device, making it immune for rusting. It also means that it can survive our salty weather, making it ideal for outdoor pool areas.
