The weather-proof Soundcast Outcast Outdoor Speaker
Spring is finally here and it’s starting to actually feel like summer might be around the corner after all. Once the weather does keep warm, you might want some music for entertaining outdoors. You could set up something indoors and just open a window, but then it’s loud inside and doesn’t sound that great outside. Instead it’s better to pick up a speaker that can withstand the weather, no matter what it may bring. Well, ok, so it might not do so well in earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes, but what would?
This approximately 1000mm tall speaker is an all weather portable outdoor speaker set up for your iPod. You just put your iPod on the dock and leave it indoors, then it will transmit wirelessly to this speaker. It will do so up to 100 meters away. This is a slightly more high end speaker, so you can be reassured knowing that it will likely have great sound quality. The speaker is thankfully not affected by microwave ovens, phones or other random wireless devices. It has an 8” bass woofer and four 3” high frequency treble speakers and a 100 watt digital amplifier. It will operate for up to 10 hours using the rechargeable NiMH battery pack. This will cost you £464.89 or about $675.
