Hey guys, first post here! I have always been a big fan of Halloween. Over the last 5 years I have gotten into really decorating my yard, but in a nice creepy way....not the blow up crap I see in the neighborhood. So in addition to the normal stuff I do, I purchased a few of the AtmosfearFX sets and 2 new Epson projectors. I ordered the material from India I think, referenced in another thread. I also went to the fabric store and purchased the other material most people get, I do not remember the name but it has a gray / purple tone to it. So with all of this set up what about the audio?

I want to leave the projectors going steady may 2 weeks before Halloween and would like the audio outside so whatever is playing in the top floor window could be heard down in the yard. Halloween is really big here, tons of people show up since there are 300+ houses here. I thought about an outside speaker but damn, that is a lot of wire running through the house. I also thought I could just run the wire outside the top floor window and put the speaker on the roof if it was not obvious. I just need some ideas here, I do not want a gaudy setup.

if your not worried about delay i used apple airport express, with the audio out running to powered speakers, play the video file in itunes and send the audio to the apple airport.

Personally, I'd just run it out the window, and put the speaker on the roof. Not only will you save yourself some time, effort and money, but the sound will appear to becoming from the intended source, rather than several feet away. If the sound is coming from near the window, it would be more likely to draw people's eyes up to that window.

I can use one of the rock looking speakers in the garden, for downstairs. But for the upstairs window could you guys recommend something that would king of blend in on a shingled roof?

Also wondering about how many watts I would need. Since I cannot post links yet, Amazon has a Lapai 20w amp and a Pyle 120w amp, I will need one for each floor. Is the Lepai going to be powerful enough?
