    iPod Speakers

    Hey up,

    I have been asked by the PE department to see if I can find some nice speakers for an iPod, presumably so they can play music in the gym/hall.

    I don't think they've bought an iPod yet, so I don't know which model it would be. But they're looking to spend up to £150 and it probably needs to be pretty loud and fairly robust. Anyone got anything they would recommend?


    Thanks.

    Maybe a portable pa would be a better idea - sure to be much louder and allow a greater degree of flexibility

    Just get any standard speakers and then just plug them into the headphone port.

    Rather than iPod speakers, a PA system with a 3.5mm line-in would be a better idea, as that would also work with other MP3 players as well as old-school things like CD players and cassettes (ask your parents!), too.

    We do have a "portable" PA system (it takes 2 people to carry it) but they just wanted something smaller and more portable. Though maybe just getting some speakers would be better than getting something iPod specific. As you say, we could then use them for more than just the iPod Has anyone got any nice speakers for around £150?
