5 speakers for the 4th of July that really boom

If there’s one thing we all associate with the 4th of July, it’s fireworks.

Fireworks light up the sky and thunder with a large boom. But, that’s not all that booms this season — it’s the time of year when people celebrate outdoors, have cook outs, and enjoy the sun; it’s the time of year where the festivities could really start booming by having the best speakers around.

Klipsch KH07

The KH07

The right music can be a huge boost to your party, but only if your guests can actually hear it. A lot of outdoor speakers start to lose their sound as the volume knob creeps up. Not the KHO-7, though. This speaker loves to show off what it can do. Each KHO-7 speaker is rated to play at 75 Watts consistently, and they peak at 300W. So, not only can these impressive speakers provide background music for your get togethers, they can keep the party pumping if that backyard barbecue turns into a summer dance party.

Jamo S 426HCS

The S 426HCS

Boom, there it is. The music that is. Stylish looks meets quality performance for this loudspeaker ensemble. The floorstanding speakers have dual woofers in a reflex-optimized enclosure, as well as a low-resonance tweeter. The result is clear, full audio without resonance, so your audio will sound better than ever. Add to that a powerful center channel and two bookshelf speakers for an encompassing surround sound system. The included wall brackets allow you to easily mount the speakers and provide versatile placement options. This sound system will keep you in the music.

Klipsch KHC6

The KHC6

The Synergy Series line produces sound that delivers power, detail, and emotion. The KHC-6 drivers sonically match the freestanding models in the Synergy line, producing the same wide dynamic, low distortion performances. Constructed on a rigid, low-resonance cast-polymer frame, the two-way KHC-6 delivers robust bass from its 6.5″ IMG-cone woofer. On the high end, its coaxially mounted 1″ aluminum-dome compression driver tweeter is mated to a 100° Klipsch Tractrix Horn, which raises the driver’s efficiency and controls its radiation pattern to minimize detail-blurring reflections. With the KHC-6, you’ve got one powerhouse of an acoustical system.

Energy Veritas Series Surround Speaker

The Veritas Series Surround Speaker

All speakers are not created equal, and all occasions don’t necessarily call for the same type of sound. The Energy VS is a powerful 3-way speaker that can be switched between bipole and dipole modes to create enveloping sound fields for music, or for more directional listening for concerts or the like. The 1″ tweeter, dual 2″ midranges, and 5.25″ woofer work together to create audio that brings your music experience together in perfect harmony. Elegant looks and versatile mounting options make this a speaker ideal for nearly anywhere, and the compact size gives it an unobtrusive look, even as it creates head-turning sound.

Sonance Mariner 51

The Mariner 51

The Mariner 51 outdoor speaker pair’s 0.75″ tweeters and 5.25″ woofers combine to create an impacting soundscape wherever you mount them. Which is surprisingly easy with Sonance’s Fastmount bracket mounting system. A polypropylene cabinet, perforated-aluminum grille, and Protected Access Connection Terminal system offer advanced weather resistance. This impressive speaker pair will be sounding out the tunes all summer.
