Great Music Makes a Great Party!

  1.    Most Importantly create your playlist.
  2.    Add natural looking rock speakers to blend in with your yard.
  3.    If your yard is large, you will need speakers that play both left and right channels.You will also need speakers in each area on both sides so the sound blends and is not too loud in one area and too soft in another.
  4.    Depending on the location you can run the speakers directly from you home stereo system or you may need to add a second receiver or a wireless music player closer to the backyard area. Run the cable wire from your system under ground. Put the wire within pvc conduit to give you extra protection from gardening tools.
