Broan SPK110 Sensonic Speaker Fan Review
If you’re looking for a bathroom sound system that will blend right in to your bathroom, the Broan SPK110 Sensonic Speaker Fan is worth a look. Connect your phone or tablet to the speakers with Bluetooth and rock out with this combination of Dual High-Fidelity Sensonic™ speakers and quiet, high-powered fan. You can purchase Broan’s SPK110 on Amazon for $145.42.
For bathrooms up to 105 square feet, this is a great fan and speaker combination. The fan runs quietly, which lets your music be heard over the noise of your shower. The quality of the sound is impressive for how contained the speaker is, but won’t replace a full bathroom sound system. This can be helped by changing the equalizer on your Bluetooth device to accentuate midrange outputs.
This fan is ENERGY STAR certified and complies with CALGreen. Broan includes a 3 year warranty, which is definitely reassuring. The 13 x 14 inch grill of the SPK110 is white, but the polymeric finish can be painted to match your bathroom. For me, it’s a bit disappointing that there is no light included.
While I did note above that the speaker can only be used while the fan is on, some Amazon reviewers noted ways around this, either by hardwiring the speaker or giving the speaker and fan their own switches. It appeared they were both electricians and if you want to attempt this, I highly recommend finding someone who knows what they’re doing!
If you already have a Broan bathroom ceiling fan you’re happy with, you can also buy the speaker unit separately. Broan has a list of all models that are compatible with the speaker accessory (model SPKACC) on their website.
