Re: Bose 151 Speakers... Opinions
A little off topic. I like music and I like good sound. I was about to rig a wired sound system into my boat and paused and decided to take a reluctant step into the 21st century. I got a boom box type thing from Creative (not the old style boom box - no radio, just speakers) that has blue tooth. Mine runs on 4 double A batteries and can also plug in to boat elec. In the cabin, it sits on a shelf and sounds great. I can bring it out to the cockpit, or cabin top (lashed, if necessary). The blue tooth allows me, or any visitor, to connect wirelessly from anywhere on the boat, play off stored songs or off Pandora through cell phone. You can control it, obviously, from wherever you have your cell phone or other mp3 player. Can be taken to the beach, etc. It has worked out real well. A lot of flexibility. I know there is sacrifice in sound quality using mp3 to blue tooth, but I think when outdoors, the speakers are more important than the source.
