Halloween Yard Haunt Audio

Ordered a couple of HMDX Burst rechargable speakers in gray to use with a small inexpensive battery powered MP3 player for Halloween night. Need some Dia de los Muertos music playing in the background to complete the haunt. While not weatherproof, I like the fact I don't need to run a power cord to it. It can easily be stashed behind a tombstone or placed in the corner of the front porch if the weather isn't cooperating. It's small enough that it could be hidden in a prop for sound effects. Way back in the early 2000's we had a wireless outdoor speaker but it continually lost signal and played more static than sounds/music. For the past several years I've used a pair of small powered computer speakers with an MP3 player which always became a hassle with running the power cord and all the speaker wires involved. The reason I ordered two of these little speakers is they're pretty inexpensive, so why not have a spare!

    1. It does add "ambiance". Highly recommend music by Midnight Syndicate.

  2. Got the HMDX Burst speakers today. I'm super impressed with the sound quality and overall loudness for such a small portable speaker. Only paid $16 each too!
