  • Know of any 8 ohm marine-grade ceiling speakers?

    I'm looking for ceiling speakers for my patio/deck, but since I live on a saltwater canal I'm looking for something not just outdoor rated, but marine grade. Don't want to replace the speakers every couple of years. Any suggestions? They don't need to be super high quality, but something to provide background music outside.

    Forgot to mention that I'm looking for 8 ohm speakers. Most marine speakers I've found are 4 ohm for installation in boats.

      Pyle has some outdoor rated marine grade that are waterproof and they are 8 ohm impedance.

      Here is one I found. https://www.amazon.com/Pyle-PWRC81-W...iling+speakers

          Do they have any 8 ohm impedance speakers? A quick look at their website only shows me 4 ohm.

            Yea forgot about that, you could wire 2 in series to get your 8 ohms.

              Thanks guys for the suggestions. I knew I'd find some here. I ordered a pair of these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1.

              They didn't get great reviews, but I'll give them a shot.
