Does this speaker exist?
« on: August 12, 2018, 04:17:02 pm »

Looking for a speaker that is Dante enabled, runs on PoE (i.e. no external power required), and isn't a ceiling mounted paging type speaker.

Oh and weatherproof for use outdoors also. 

Looking for something to go along with a laser light show type event experience.

What about this Soundtube speaker? Anyone use these before? Do they sound at all acceptable?

I saw the SoundTube stuff demoed at a trade show.  Not high-powered by any means, but the fidelity was actually pretty decent.  They're basically using a proprietary PoE box so they can inject higher voltages than the standard PoE protocol.

Depending on PoE standard and switch power supply, 25 Watts is available. Got a bunch of 48v injectors for all kinds of gear as well as some universal power supplies to run random gear off PoE.

Yamaha is releasing both a hipower POE switch and speaker...don't think it's weatherproof tho.

Y'all are kidding about the POE spec right?

100w is available and more is on the way lookup 802.3bt Type 4

Yeah the newer specs are pretty beefy in output, though the single port injectors will cost you upwards of $150 each. Going with a switch is slightly more cost-effective, but at the cost of reduced output per port (usually between 30-60W depending on how many powered ports are in play).

1) Do it right
2) Do it over until you do it right

Agreed, Cisco's new 9k series routers are 100w capable per port up to 3000w per slot with redundant capabilities IIRC.
