Need help with outdoor speaker system for the pool (pictures attached)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a bar being built in front of the house (pictures 1 and 2), and then on the other side I'm building a cabana. What I need are good outdoor speakers. Keep in mind that the ground is concrete all around.

Max budget is probably $2k-$2.5k for receivers + speakers. Would prefer to use my iphone to control the music, but I assume I can do that with an apple TV or something. Also any suggestions of where the speakers should be placed etc would be great.

I had a pool installed last year and went with www.outdoorspeakerdepot.com for my speakers. I used the 250W speakers for the front and 150W for the rear. Granted this is a wired speaker system before concrete was poured but they also have wireless systems. Speaker wire can be easily ran even with concrete it just depends on how creative you can be. I drive my system with a Denon AVR 1713.This receiver has a second zone to add another receiver for more speakers. I have a second Denon that was an open box from
Best Buy to keep the cost down. I ran Cat5 to connect it to my home netowrk. You can run your music from your Smart phone, internet radio, pandora or the fm tuner. It also has HDMI connections to run Cable or Sattelite. Denon had a nice app that connects everything. Last thing i will add is a 250W Subwoofer. This is all within your budget. As far as sound goes it is very crisp,clean and has plenty of power when needed. I have a set of 250W speakers that have been outside for 4 years and still sound as good as the day i put them in. Hope that helps.
