View Full Version : need a super cheep outdoor speaker
09-30-2005, 08:23 PM
I'm wanting to make a set of speakers that will go under the roof of a gazebo. size is not at all an issue. but I would like to have good sensitivity. I was thinking anyware from 8" to 15" woofer 2 way or three way. simple and cheep is the idea.

Are you opposed to PA style speakers, or would you prefer them?
Got a max box size to work with?

I built the BR-1s for this purpose. Cheap, nice speaker, and I got the plastic smart speaker support to hang it. I figure when the drivers wear out from being outside for under $20 I can replace each of the drivers.

Don's suggestion is a good suggestion in sound quality, I believe you are looking for quantity (SPL) vs. performance.
Which would you deem most important?
What are your intentions?

These speakers will not be played at high volumes, but I would like to have something with more range then the average bassless outdoor speakers.
SQ is not a concern as long as I don't have large spikes in the mid and treble ranges.
These are being built into the trusses of a 14' octagon gazebo. size is NOT an issue! :)
Thanks for the help!

I wasn't thinking PA style but if it's cheap I would go for it. when I say cheap I mean I was looking at $8-15 woofers on buyout and stuff like that. I was thinking 3 way with a 8" to 15" woofer, but If I can get away with an 8" two way and make it cheaper that would be great.
Thanks for the healp!
