    Have just done out the bathroom and wanted to fit some flush mounted ceiling speakers. Some cost up to £250, NO WAY !!!. Any reason apart from being 4 ohmms that i can't use car speakers. Sony.Alpine,Clarion do some great looking speakers from £25.00 upwards

    Cheaper to take a laxative and then you'd be out that much quicker that you wouldn't need inbuilt entertainment

    Best speakers to use in the bathroom are the LINN SWEETSPOT. These are about £100/pair but are steam proof. Rated at 50w/channel.

    I think Ian J might be an American where bathroom means toilet, so to clarify bathroom as in bath where you dunk yourself into big tub of hot water to clean one self. :smashin:

    Sorry. No - doesn't seem to be much reason to me why such a thing wouldn't be possible (apart from for aesthetic reasons). Assuming you have loft space you have a bit of scope to get quite a decent sound using infinite baffle principles as well.

    How are you going to drive them? Multi-zone output from a receiver?

    MuFu.

    P.S. I imagine paper-cone speakers would be out of the question.

    You could replace the toilet with a velodyne subwoofer and crap down the bass reflex port whilst watching the D-Day landing scene in Saving Private Ryan.

    The reason you couldn't use in car speakers is because they won't be water resistant, and the water vapour may or may not damage them- you take a risk if you put them in a bathroom. Linn Sweetspots are good, but Boston and Speakercraft both do round, in-ceiling speakers which are ideal for bathrooms.

    Some car speakers are resistent to water. Think about it, the speakers in your doors are subject to moisture.

    BTW, Ian talking about a half bath :D
