The magic of outdoor listening

I tend to keep one system I can pull outdoors when I am in the mood the freedom from room colorations is an amazing thing. Being outside listening to a great system playing wonderful music is magic. I have a bike race by my home and if the weather is nice many times I'm out jamming I have had large groups of cyclists stop 50 yards from my home to enjoy my music. Last year I has using a giant pair of RCA front horns with a full range in it this year going with a community leviathan system with radial. I pull out a tube amp when I jam outside. When I retire I plan on putting out a permanent outdoor horn system so it is ready to go when I am. Sitting still seated centered in a room all alone is enjoyable at times but also kind of tragic I am happy I have options. Maybe consider the outdoors as one of your listening spaces.


Pyle bluetooth outdoor speakers outside on deck under the eves...good enough for me. Rock speakers out back near woodline and gazebo. I would not say they compate in any way to a good indoor sound system, not even close. The room reinforces the sound. 

Its great listening at the beach or park I have a pair of Turtle Boxes they pair by bluetooth in stereo and EQed for outdoors  I had them disappear on the beach where the music sounds like it is coming from the waves

People aways come over and ask about them and thank us for the music 

Enjoy the Music


I firmly believe no one should have to listen to my music outside of my home and where neighbors are concerned, the understanding should be mutual. 

I don't have to drag it outside - just need to open the balcony doors.
One day last summer I got home early in the afternoon.
Put a glorious Bach LP on the turntable and turned it up louder then I have ever played it, threw the doors open to water plants.
By the time the side ended there was a knock on my door from the president of the Condo board telling me I need to lower it. I apologized and she stated that I didn't need to apologize to her but that she received calls from 3 different buildings and someone who lives 4 floors above me.
I found it embarrassing and a bit humiliating. After some thought I came to the same conclusion as noromance above. ...urban environment
