Ok, so I've been searching online and on the site and haven't found exactly what I'm looking for; heck it may not exist, but I doubt that.
-What I've got, is a roughly 700 sq ft. covered patio in the back of my house.
-I have a sound bar setup in the living room just inside from the patio.
-And I've got a desire to listen to music while out BBQ or just hanging out.
Right now, I have a Logitech Bluetooth adapter
hooked to my Sony Soundbar setup
in the living room and my iPhone 4S streaming Pandora.
It works OK, but frankly the soundbar just doesn't get loud enough sometimes for my needs, and you have to have it nearly maxed out volume wise to hear it outside, which then means whoever is inside prepping food has to deal with it being so loud. Plus when its really hot outside we like to keep the windows closed to the house to keep the A/C unit from working too hard.
The second option I have is taking my iHome portable speaker out and setting it on the table. Again it works decent, but what I really want, is a pair of outdoor speakers mounted to the beam on the awning that I can connect my iPhone to directly via bluetooth OR Wifi if thats how they do it, and stream directly through them without the need of a separate receiver.
Does a setup like that even exist? Any other ideas?? I can run A/C out there pretty easily.
