    underwater speakers

    okay anybody know of any full range like 4-7'' speakers that can be in and out of water and then back in the sun and be okay for at least a couple of years?

    when i say in water i mean in and out of the water all day and sometimes totalty submerged.

    thanks for your help.

    Re: underwater speakers

    I don't know that any speaker you'd want to use is capable of being completely submerged with no adverse effects. Even marine-use designed drivers aren't supposed to be completely underwater...

    Re: underwater speakers

    Any rubber surround, poly coned speaker that's VERY well sealed into a very well sealed enclosure could last well in and out of water for a long time.

    Re: underwater speakers

    The speakers I posted in that link above would be kinda bulky but they would work.

    What you need there is an amp that needs little to no cooling. Then all you do is completely drown the circuit board in silicon.

    Actually, if you took apart an amp, coverd the board in silicon...... then used individual heat sinks on all of the FET's you'd be in pretty good shape.
