Best Speakers For Your Garage: Reviews

1. Dual Electronics LU43PB Outdoor Indoor Speakers

Dual Electronics LU43PB 3-Way High Performance Outdoor Indoor Speakers with Powerful Bass | Effortless Mounting Swivel Brackets | All Weather Resistance | Expansive Stereo Sound Coverage | Sold in Pairs
  • |DESIGNED TO LIVE INDOORS & OUTDOORS| - your studio quality speakers can be mounted/placed in any open space, by the pool, under your patio, in the garage, on a bookshelf; regardless of placement they will deliver Extraordinary Sound
  • |DIGITALLY OPTIMIZED FOR EXPANSIVE DISPERSION & POWERFUL BASS| - the synchronized harmony of your 3-Way Component Speakers & 4-inch Woofer create a state of accurate acoustic dispersion with deep rich sounding bass for a truly full range of sound

If you are on the hunt for an affordable pair of speakers that you can use in your garage, or even outdoors, then these Dual Electronics LU43PB Outdoor Indoor Speakers are a good option to keep in mind.

Now, something that we want to mention right off the bat is that this awesome price includes a pair of speakers, but the amplifier is not included, which you will need to make them work right and to complete the setup, but there is an amp from this same brand that also comes in at a low price, so it should not be a huge deal.

The Dual Electronics LU43PB Outdoor Indoor Speakers come with easy-to-mount swivel brackets, so you can put them on a wall, a ceiling, or on the floor if you so choose. What’s cool here is that these speakers deliver 120 degrees of sound projection, so they will really light up any space no problem.

They are not the most expensive speakers around, but they do still have Hi-Fi audio, really deep bass, and they go pretty loud, so for the low price, the sound quality is surprisingly good.

Moreover, although you can’t dunk them in the pool, these are weather-resistant speakers, so you can have them outdoors or in a garage, as long as there is not a torrential downpour.

Pros

  • Quite affordable
  • Weather-resistant
  • Easy to mount
  • Pretty good sound quality

Cons

  • Needs an amp
  • Grills may rust a bit

Who is this best for?

This option is best for anybody who wants a durable pair of speakers for a good price, with decent sound quality to boot.

This is another pair of nice garage and outdoors speakers, the Yamaha NS-AW150WH 2-Way Indoor/Outdoor Speakers, and they are slightly more expensive than the ones we just looked at, but they do also have some beneficial features. For one, these speakers have a high-quality sound.

They feature 120 watts of power, so they are quite powerful, and this means that they are fairly loud; they are not the loudest of all speakers, but for the price, you really can’t complain, and they are more than loud enough for a garage.

At the same time, the Yamaha NS-AW150WH 2-Way Indoor/Outdoor Speakers also feature high-quality tweeters and woofers, so they do have good sound quality, especially when it comes to bass.

What is also nice about the Yamaha NS-AW150WH 2-Way Indoor/Outdoor Speakers is that they are fairly compact, and they do not take up all that much space, so they work well if you are tight on room.

Furthermore, these speakers can be placed vertically or horizontally, plus they can also be mounted with relative ease.

What’s also cool here is that the Yamaha NS-AW150WH 2-Way Indoor/Outdoor Speakers are magnetically shielded, so you can place them beside a computer or TV without fearing for the image quality or image degradation on your display.

In terms of durability however, they are not the most long-lasting speakers.

  • Easy to mount – various positions

Not the most durable components

5. Enrock Marine Mini 4 Speaker System

  • SPEAKERS: This 200-watt, three-way Pyle Hydra marine speaker has been specially designed for harsh outdoor environments. Works great on your boat, deck, by your pool, or simply mounted outdoors, because it's completely waterproof. And it sounds great, too, thanks to a 24 oz magnet structure powering a 3.5' aluminum injection cone woofer, 1.75' wide dispersion cone for rich mids, and a 1' super dome tweeter for sweet highs.

What’s cool about the Enrock Marine Mini 4 Speaker System is that it is like a mini surround sound speaker system. You get a total of 4 small speakers, each with 200 watts of power, which is quite impressive.

Each speaker can be placed wherever you see fit in order to provide your garage with the best surround sound experience. They are very small speakers, so they don’t take up much room no matter where you place them.

Furthermore, they can be placed vertically or horizontally, plus they can be easily mounted using the rear brackets. Each speaker on its own is not all that loud, but loud enough that when all 4 come together, they produce quite a good volume. Their sound quality is not the best in the world, but it should be good enough for a small garage.

All this being said, there is some wiring that needs to be done to connect the speakers together, which is a bit of a pain, but nothing too serious. In terms of overall durability, they are also not the best.

Pros

  • 4 speaker for surround sound
  • Reasonable price
  • Decent volume and sound quality
  • Easy to mount

Cons

  • Some wiring that needs to be done
  • Not the most durable

Who is this best for?

If you want to create a surround-sound effect, it’s the Enrock Marine Mini 4 Speaker System is our recommendation. The Dual Electronics LU43PB Outdoor Indoor Speakers and the Yamaha NS-AW150WH 2-Way Indoor/Outdoor Speakers are affordable and fairly decent speakers as well.
