I just completed this installation of a squeezebox into my bathroom.. worked really nicely and didn't involve taking the unit to bits.

Nice job. I was disappointed to find that your guestbook link doesn't seem
to work. I have a few songs to add to your bathroom playlist. :)

Nice install and the write-up was very entertaining. I agree, the perspex window does sem at bit pervy, especially when viewed from the attic side. I'd love to be a fly on the wall when viewers come round if you ever sell ...

A question; is your bath really 30 degrees off level, or is the second photo misleading? Also, do bathroom scales read accurately at that angle, or do you get them specially calibrated?

Little Feat's "Wait 'Til the S*** Hits the Fan" comes
immediately to mind...

I've been looking for something for my bathroom, How do those speakers sound? would you be able to install them in a false ceiling? what is the clearence behind like?

not perfect, a little top end heavy... I think this would improve if you had the bigger sizes (these are 4" they do a 6" as well) and a sealed void to mount them in. but considering most of the time the water is runnig as well it's not so important. to me.

They are designed for ceilings i think. the 4" speakers would need about 2-3" clear behind the plasterboard... I guess this would be propotionate with the bigger speakers. the same firm does wall mounted ones as well.

and in answer to the other person.. the bath and floor are level it's a composite photo that skews everything.. or were you joking?
