How to Select the Best Party Speakers

When we categorize stuff, often, we prefer the bigger and more expensive stuff assuming that it’s the best and it’s what you need. But most of the time, we end up having a gadget that we don’t maximize. To help you buy the right party speakers that fit your preferences, here are some qualities and characteristics you may want to follow.

•    Wattage

The wattage rating of your speakers tells about how loud it can get. The general rule suggests that 1-watt can fill 1sqm of space indoors. So, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to have the speakers with the highest rating. Also, take into account the difference between RMS rating and the peak power rating. Many speaker companies advertise their products with a high maximum power rating.

Although they can play songs up to the power rating mentioned, it is not advisable to max out your speakers as it may overheat and break. Look for the RMS rating instead to see how loud it can play continuously without damaging your speakers.

•    Indoor Use

If you are hosting a small indoor party, towering speakers may be a bit of an overkill for the event. It may even sabotage the socialization of a small group of people. If you are most likely hosting indoor parties that involve only a small group of people, a low wattage speaker may be enough.

•    Outdoor Use

Planning an outdoor party would require a speaker with a higher rating. You will need more power rating to be able to fill open spaces outdoor as the environment can suck up the vibrations in the air and give you thin sounding music.

Powered speakers with high RMS are best used outside.

•    Wireless Connectivity

Everything needs to be remotely and wirelessly operated nowadays. Without this feature, speakers can be a little difficult to operate. Wireless capabilities make playing music easier. Chromecast, Bluetooth, wireless LAN, NFC, are some ways you can connect with your speakers.


•    AM/FM

This may be a trivial feature nowadays because we can easily stream music online. However, for some people who are fond of radio programs, this may be a good feature.


•    Water, Dust, and Shockproof

These are some default features of modern-day electronics. This protects your gadget from harmful environmental elements. This also means that you don’t have to worry about bringing your speakers near bodies of water for an enjoyable pool or beach party!


•    Battery and Power Source

Most portable speakers are equipped with high capacity batteries that can power your speaker for hours. Alternatively, they can also run on AC. Determine how and where you intend to use your speakers. If you plan on using it outdoors mostly, battery-operated speakers will go a long way.


•    Pairing

Many portable speakers feature the ability to be paired with many other speakers that can play in sync wirelessly. If you need to fill different rooms with the same music, pairing your speakers would do the job.

 


Last Words

Selecting the best party speakers can be a difficult task because of the huge selection you have to choose from. Different situations may require different types of speakers. Also, the question of how much you are willing to spend for them plays an important role.


Among the 8 selections we have here, DiamondBoxx XL 231 beats everything else regarding sound quality, battery life, and durability.


Well, I hope you have finally made up your mind on which party speakers you will get! If you have some suggestions, or if you know a party speaker that beasts everything on the list, feel free to comment it below and we will get back to it.
