The Gallo Acoustics Micro SE Speaker is the high performance version of the Gallo Micro Speaker and offers an incredible sound from such a small unit. We have this style of speaker in our van conversion and can’t recommend them enough – and trust me Will is fussy about his speakers! We have two Micro SE speakers in our cab in Urban Grey as this colour matches the van carpet really well, and two in the living space of our van in copper.
There’s a few reasons why we think Gallo speakers are perfect for van conversions and campers. The main reason is they’re really small! The Micro is a 4″ sphere which means they’ll fit pretty much anywhere. They weigh in at just 737g each which also makes them ideal where keeping under 3.5kg is a concern. Despite being small, these speakers give off an impressive crystal clear sound with an extended frequency range (100Hz to 22Khz). They’re also easy to mount on a table, wall or ceiling. Finally, the range of colours mean they’ll coordinate with your van aesthetics perfectly!
Each Gallo Acoustics Micro SE Speaker is supplied with an Isolation2 surface mount. This is an aluminium and silicon rubber ring that allows placement on a table without losing acoustic integrity. If you’re using these speakers in a van you’ll need to ensure they’re fixed down though for driving, and not just placed on the ring! The Wall Mount and Table Mount are great options.
The Micro SE has a redesigned all-metal terminal area. This allows for connection via standard-sized banana plugs as well as speaker cable up to 4mm in diameter.
There’s a few options for playing music with your speakers. The first is to connect them to your van’s existing radio/music system, the second is to install a bluetooth amp to enable music to be played from your smartphone via iTunes, Spotify etc. There’s plenty of options for small amps available online, including the Fosi Audio BT20A or Nobsound Mini Amp.
We’ve listed a few core colours of speakers that we think look great in vans, as well as the Micro SE Copper speaker. Gallo can also colour match your speakers to any colour you want. If this is something you’re interested in please drop us a message to discuss.
