Hi there,

I need some kind of way to have music in a warehouse/retail space - 3000Sq Ft. For music source, I was thinking Pandora commercial via my laptop. What kind of speakers would I need for this? or do I need more stuff like a receiver? Simple laptop + speakers not good enough for such space? I would like to keep costs as low as possible. Any help regarding this would be great.

Thank you

Actual exact budget?

Will this be used for just background music for shoppers or do you need it loud?

It sounds like you are going to need an integrated amplifier of some sort and a pair of speakers. The Sony SSB-3000 speakers are $70 or so and would probably be good enough for that.

You can probably find a used receiver or amplifier fairly cheap, since it doesn't have to have the latest features.

With the space of your size one set of speakers is not enough. The best solution is to use ceiling speakers placed every 10 feet all over that place. Than you will need few professional amps to drive them. Get the cheapest you can find, you do not need anything fancy for that purpose.
