Bulkhead type plugs for outdoor speakers

I'd like to have some small outdoor speakers on magnet mounts that I can use in camp. Does anyone here know of a weather proof fitting with a plug or cap that I could use to plug the speakers into when in use? Thanks for any help.

Have you considered a wireless bluetooth outdoor speaker? They come in all shapes and sizes and you can play music from your phone/tablet/whatever and you don't impact your van's batteries at all.

This gets my vote. We recently bought one of these and I'm blown away by the sound quality.

Agree for a number of reasons, but primarily because a vehicle dash stereo can draw up to 8 Amps of current. That can run down a battery pretty quickly.

That's perfect!!!! We've got some pretty nice BT speakers, but for our purposes ( weather radio, HAM, etc.) this will be better. I was going to have a rotary switch feeding it for multiple feeds. Our SMB has a switch that allows the audio system to run off the house batteries. With the solar panels, amp draw shouldn't be an issue. We don't have any amps, sub woofers, etc. Thanks for the advice guys! Love this forum.

Can this product's internal battery be charged by plugging it into a USB or 12V source?

Their marketing copy makes a big deal about using it to re-charge a phone. Not my concern. I want to know how to charge the speakers.
