Default Hangar Tunes

I need tunes for my hangar. I have been using a small JLB Flip wireless bluetooth speaker but it does not have the power that I would like to put out some high quality music with good volume.

I am looking for a bluetooth speaker with some power that produces excellent sound at good volume. I do not have wifi in the hangar so I am limited to bluetooth and plug in connections from my ipod. It would be good if the unit also had a built in radio.

Any suggestions for a good hangar music source?

FWIW I use a cheap Polaroid Bluetooth PA speaker and it works very well in my hangar. YMMV

There are many of us that are old enough to have BIG stereo speakers left over from the golden age of "you can never have too many watts going in to your speakers". We've even got the big old amps. Banished from the modern household by newer, Hi-Tech devices, they have found refuge in hangars where they can blast the volume out to their hearts content. A simple patch cable from the iPhone/iPad, or other music device works just fine.

For tunes, you might try and find the very rare "Air Circus" by Barb McLeod. Barb is a unique individual who has a PhD in conversational Mayan, teaches aerobatics (she did a video on "The Long Spin" in a C-150 years ago), and does distinctly unique folksy music....

Default UE Boom 2 or Mega Boom

Go to Best Buy and try this speaker at their display. 360° sound and waterproof. I was very impressed when my boss used one at a house gathering. Small package with good sound quality. You can even tether a pair (or more) together if you wanted. It has 3.5mm Auxiliary Input for chord connection.

If you want bigger look into the Mega Boom.

Craigslist is a great place to find those vintage speakers that Paul described as well as not-so-old amps/receivers that can drive them...

Examples from my local CL: https://jacksonville.craigslist.org/...204520066.html, https://jacksonville.craigslist.org/...246647892.html

All you need to connect phone/ipod is a 1/8" stereo to RCA cable - cheap on Amazon

Default Bose

I use the Bose soundlink mini II that came as a bundle with the Bose A20 headset. I am amazed at the sound quality this little box can put out.

2nd for this option, although at times I would like more tunes I am not sure all my neighbors at the airport would agree.
