Outside speakers

We're putting an Alpine AM/FM/sat receiver inside our 21. We have the same unit in our 19 but the sound isnt really audible outside where we spend most of our time unless we crank it up which doesn't make the neighbors (or our cat) happy. We're exploring weather proof outside speakers but really don't want to cut holes in the shell to mount them.

Anybody have luck with outside speakers?

Greg

That Alpine have Bluetooth?
That's the way to go. And you can find reviews of best rated speakers on The Wirecutter.

I have no solution but I'm glad to read your comment about your neighbors. Some of us don't even like our own music outside, let alone someone else's. Unless it's Merle...or Waylon...or Beethoven...or Tchaikovsky. Just kidding. I really like to hear rivers, streams, birds, etc., when camping. Thank you for being thoughtful!

Go here: The Best Portable Bluetooth Speaker | The Wirecutter
It does but so far, I've only found that It will receive audio and play it thru its speakers. Haven't found a way to send the audio to a bluetooth speaker.

I found a pair of 4" 2way boat speakers at West Marine for $20.

I've been told you can get a Bluetooth accessory for old iPods that plugs into the AUX. jack.
I'd be inclined to go with one of those plugged into the Alpine with the UE Bluetooth speaker.
I've got JBL Bluetooth speaker and it is fine for my ear.

I use a Blue Tooth transmitter that plugs into the earphone jack; transmits to my Sony Bluetooth speaker up to 25-30 ft away. Speaker has it's own volume control on it. Transmitter recharges from the USB port on the stereo while plugged into the earphone jack.

I need to buy something.
