    I bought a couple of cheap projectors to try outside. This is only going to be used a dozen or so times a year. I kept a VANKYO LEISURE 3 Mini Projector 1080P and am very happy with the quality of the video. The audio volume is very low. I hooked it up to 5 different portable BT speakers...

    I am looking for help with a projector, screen and active speakers for my backyard. I would like something decent and this will only be used for outside. I was targeting about $1k for the projector which puts me at roughly the Epson Home Cinema 2250. I don't mind spending more if it is a big...

    Backyard speakers - budget $600. Right now I have some OSD AP670s that are okay sounding but honestly I want something a bit better.
  6. Screens
    Hi All, I'm collaborating with a community organisation that wants to organise an outdoor cinema, and they are trying to sort the screen to be hung in front of a shipping container. I was looking into Blackout Cloths but seems that the sizes are smaller than what we need. Based on their...

    I currently have a Sintra fixed screen behind our shop that is roughly 14' wide using the advice from Mississippi Man. It has worked great for the past few years, but now I want to move the setup directly to our backyard. I am hoping you guys can pass on some good advice as to which screen...
  8. Outdoor Theaters
    Not sure if this is the correct sub for this question, but it seemed to fit the best. I am looking at donating a new PA system to our local little league baseball organization. Currently they have two powered PA speakers on tripods that need to be moved each game (not ideal) receiving the...

    We are in the middle of a new pool build and I am looking for ways to set up a 3 zone system that will allow me to play music (via pandora or spotify).

  13. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    So here's my setup. I've got an outdoor TV hooked up to an old Denon receiver via HDMI. The receiver powers five overhead speakers, no sub, so it's 5.0. It's fine for my limited use outdoors. I send audio via ARC from the TV (which is a TCL Roku TV) to the receiver. I don't ever plan to get...
  14. Outdoor Theaters
    I'm sure you've got a lot of these questions so sorry in advance. I've been googling for awhile, but still very confused on what to do. I'm looking for a sub $1,500 outdoor projector. The backyard is small, about 16 feet across and looking for an 80 to 100 inch projection starting a little...
  15. Speakers
    Of the two, which one would y'all recommend. I currently have B&W CM9s and love the sound. This outdoor setup will be under a covered patio and therefore not directly exposed to the elements. It will be powered by a Pioneer Elite VSX-80, and be used for music and the occasional football game...

    I need to get some in ceiling covered porch speakers. I have searched on here and in general and can't figure out what to get. Don't want/need top of the line just something decent at a reasonable price. I have some SpeakerCraft mounted speakers for our deck and they are great but cost more...
  17. Speakers
    I need to set up a wireless speaker array around a residential pool area. Two wireless speakers to start with the possibility of expanding to 4 or 6. The pool owner likes the idea of rock speakers, but we're not married to it. I'd need to wirelessly tie them in to a typical stereo receiver...

    I'm about to pickup these used 525s, but I don't get why they have two sets of 'posts' on the back...other pics I've seen only have the red and black connector (one each). Is this to accommodate two separate inputs (i.e. two separate amps)? Could these have been modified to have hookups this way...
  20. Speakers
    Hi I am setting up a rooftop cinema this summer. I am a bit clueless on the audio side of things. The event is outdoor, and is for 60 people. I was looking to buy some secondhand speakers but do not know what to look for. Should I be focusing on wattage, or ohms or decibel peaks? I will keep...
