Installing a sound system in your van conversion

I looked in to fancy sound systems but it got fairly complicated and expensive; needing amplifiers, speakers, Bluetooth modules.. and honestly I do like music but adding this technology was going to cost about $500 if it is going to be good.

On top of that there is a space aspect, where will the speakers go.. where will they even look good.

In the end I decided not to bother. I did not really want to put in technology that might just go out of date – or require more maintenance.

The simple solution is simply some USB Bluetooth speakers. I think this is better for the following reasons;

  1. They can deliver great quality sound

  2. You can use them on your adventures

  3. Powered by USB – simple is always good!

  4. Can connect to your phone

  5. If it breaks – it does not affect the van build

  6. You can move it around the van as you wish

  7. If the technology goes out of date.. doesn’t matter

For me it was a relief not to have to think about an inbuilt sound system and this solution is by far better.

I got these Taotronic Bluetooth speakers and they work well:

I got them from Amazon here for about £40.
