Shower Speaker FAQ:
What is the Difference Between Waterproof and Water-Resistant?
If a product is waterproof, it must have an IPX7 rating. Which means that it can float in a meter of water for 30 minutes before it stops working.
Water-resistant, however, basically means that your device will only resist splashing. And will not survive submersion underwater, even for a few moments.
If you are also looking for a dustproof speaker, the degree of protection you must respect is IP67. It provides the same resistance to water, but with the advantage of providing dust protection.
What is the Appropriate Power for Waterproof Enclosures?
If you want to use your speakers for a quiet, intimate picnic. Then you could get by with less than 10 watts of power.
However, to enjoy these BBQs or beach beats, we recommend that you go for a minimum of 12 watts. Make sure that when you turn up the volume. The sound not distorted so that you can still enjoy the immersive, impressive, crisp, clean sound.
