Received this offer of a wireless speaker from "Creative" from whom I purchased a Zen Neon MP3 player some time ago.
Wireless speakers


It is the cheapest of the ones on offer and i ask those experts out there how it would go in the van.
Said to have a range of 10 metres.

Of course I would need to change the wireless to one with bluetooth capabilities as my Kenwood lacks this.

Any thoughts, including the best radio to replace Kenwood appreciated.

Your idea is seriously flawed unfortunately. These are 240VAC speakers and Vans are 12v. In fact how would you have powered the speakers anyhow if you don't want to run wires.? Even if they were 12V you would have need a 12v wire to the speakers and by then you could have run speaker cable.

I would recommend you run normal car stereo speakers and run speaker cable, there are many ways to run the wiring in a van.

Thanks for that Terrafirma.
I should have had the speakers done when ban was being built but diddn'e.

Thought this would be a nifty way to overcome my problem.

From enquiries made it is not an easy solution to install 2 outside

Anyway thanks for your help

You can buy wireless speakers that run off batteries, but IMO I've never heard any that sound all that good.

Battery powered wireless speakers

You could try the Bose portable Ipod dock, it has a sound that rivals most home stero systems, but is priced like most Bose products too :( You would also need an Iphone/Ipod to provide the music or any late model phone that has a stereo out jack, I know my Blackberry can be used on one.

Funny really... over 50 years ago you could buy something called a wireless just a transistor radio running off batteries take it wherever you wanted totally portable.

These days we make some product that still doesn't do the job of something that did it years ago, go figure.

Cheers.
