The 10 Best outdoor speakers
It might not be worth risking them in the June drizzle, but when the sun's out this lot will brighten up your BBQ...
Requiring a power supply, this one won't fare well if it rains or if you are in a park. But it packs a punch in terms of volume and bass.
Despite appearances, this is not a garden lamp – it's a discreet speaker encased in aluminium.
Instead of electricity, this uses acoustic amplification, so you can listen all afternoon with no thought of AA batteries.
Pretty, these certainly aren't – but looks aren't everything. They're tough, waterproof and heat resistant with great treble and bass.
Not the most powerful or pitch perfect of speakers – but perhaps the prettiest. Each one comes with a coloured fabric cover.
This is fine for an inexpensive and portable Bluetooth speaker that you can run off your iPad, iPod or smartphone.
Go all 1980s Brooklyn with your very own boombox. Just slot your iPod into the front of the battery-powered player and you're away.
The odd rain shower doesn't scare Yamaha. These two-way 120-watt speakers are nearly – but not quite totally – waterproof.
Part-time audiophiles need not apply, this is a serious bit of "weather resistant" outdoor kit and that's reflected in the price.
The most enviable speaker in the park this summer is the ice-cool Jambox. It's light, fits into your bag and recharges via a USB port.
