Bluetooth Drive-In Speaker Report for October... and other ramblings.
This isn't so much a "speaker report" as it's me making myself do a blog post! I have been slacking, but to be fair October is historically one of my family's busiest times of the year. With my wife in education and my son's last year of high school, this was our last "Fall Break" with us being able to take off for a vacation this time of year. Since my son was about to turn 18 (which he did a few days ago) we flew to Disney World to celebrate with him. It was one of the busiest visits I've ever had there, but with the combination of years of "Going to Disney Experience" and Genie+ we were able to ride everything we wanted across three parks and never wait more than 35 minutes. It's quite an amazing feat considering crowd size!
Yesterday, the 30th, we wrapped up our Halloween activities and since it is the end of the month I thought I'd show off three Bluetooth drive-in speaker sets that were finished up this month! I did one SPECO set with the classic Circ-Lite red glow strip in the J-Box, a nice Projected Sound set with baskets, and a 1950's Simplex set with heavy patina! I haven't done a set with speakers baskets in awhile, so it felt like time on the Projected Sounds. I've always liked them because that's what the drive-in I grew up with used. I also went with the classic Red and Silver motif. It seems like that ends up always being the most popular combination no matter what. Is that people looking back with Rose color... well RED colored glasses and think EVERYTHING from the 1950s and 1960s must have been red? It seems like 90% of any retro mid-century diner, kitchen, or themed room really focuses heavy on RED. Finally, at the beginning of the month I finished up a 1950's Simplex "In-A-Car" speakers set that had a red glo-top dome and kept the original vintage patina on the speakers keeping them really old looking.
Of course, all of these sets feature Bluetooth connectivity, an MP3 player, and are loaded with hundreds of vintage drive-in intermission ads, B-movie trailers, car and gasoline commercials, and other soft drink, snacks, and goodies from the 1950s and 1960! Anyhow... take a look at these most recent beauties!
