Outdoor tv sound bar dilemma
Anyone have an outdoor tv sound bar? We just did a covered patio and elected to only do a sound bar for music/tv sound instead of mounting speakers.

I had no idea these things ranged from $200 to $2k. Can anyone recommend something? Should I buy something built for all weather or just replace every several years?

It will be used for football games and playing music. Occasionally will want it to be pretty loud for parties and stuff. Would also like it to be an all in one.

Appreciate your responses in advance!

I did a Sonos Beam.

Already had Sonos in the house so it was a no brainer.

I have a Sonos soundbar outside. It used to be inside and we upgraded that one and moved the old one outside. It has worked great for 2+ years

I did the same thing. One advantage of Sonos is you can instantaneously switch between TV audio and music with the app. When watching football outside I play music/switch back and forth to TV audio with 1 button.

Am I understanding correctly it’s not Bluetooth compatible?

Sonos are wi-fi enabled speakers that connect to an app/other speakers using your in-house wifi network.

I have a Polk sound bar. Works great. Plenty of sound. I can switch from one tv or the other or Bluetooth from a device by selecting input on remote. I normally don’t buy warranties, but suggest it in case humidity gets to it.


Quick question…since Sonos connects to WiFi, is there a timing difference with the tv?

No. You connect the TV with HDMI or Optical.
