IP Rated Speakers - what is an IP rating & which one do you need in your background music system?

IP Ratings Explained

IP ratings are found almost anywhere when searching for an electrical appliance, but what do they actually mean in relation to a background music speaker? 

IP ratings also know as Ingress Protection are regulated under international standard EN 60529 (British BS EN 60529:1992, European IEC 60509:1989). They are used to define levels of protection against intrusion from foreign bodies such as moisture, liquids, dirt and dust etc.

Each number that follows 'IP' has a specific meaning informing you of its level of protection.

FIRST DIGIT EXPLAINED: Indicates the degree of protection from moving parts, as well as the protection of enclosed equipment from foreign bodies.

SECOND DIGIT EXPLAINED: Defines the protection level that the encloser has from various forms of moisture (rain, drips, sprays, submersion etc). 

Take a look at the diagram below for a better understanding along with an example of an IP54 rated speaker by Inter-M the WS-50T Wall Speaker
