    Just curious... The soundlink mini seems like a good speaker. rubber top and aluminium around it make it fairly rugged...but the 2 parts where sounds come from are not protected against sand and water.

    Do you guys know a solution wich could a bose soundlink mini water resistant?
    A sock around it would make it have protection against sand.....what about wwater?

    (liquipel no option they are not in europe.)

    I think it depends on how pretty you want it to be. I've put my jambox inside a ziplock bag to use it by the pool. Keeps the jambox dry and doesn't seem to affect the sound much (not that the acoustics are great by the pool anyway).

    Yeah that would be a solution. But it only has 2 points of entry where sand and water can get through. The front and back. Isnt there some kind of spray or stuff that fills the gaps in those grills?
    Thanks anyway for letting know it doesnt effect sound much.

    If you wanted to, you could try this product:

    http://m.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Stops-Rust-18-oz-NeverWet-Multi-Purpose-Spray-Kit-274232/204216476?N=5yc1vZblfg

    I don't know if it's available in Europe or if Home Depot would ship it to Europe, though.

    I also don't have any personal experience with it, but I've seen some very good reviews for it and there are a lot of YouTube videos about it.

    I have no idea how or if it would affect sound quality either.

    Finally, I have seen a few waterproof bluetooth speakers, so if you're not dead set on the soundlink then you might want to consider just getting one that comes waterproof.
