Those Cambridge Audio speakers pictured use BMW drivers .... you should read up on those to see if you will like their sonic signature ..... some forum members don't

Also since you want to use in the bathroom is would rather look at speakers designed for marine/boat usage since bathrooms can get steamy so IMHO you need speakers with a degree of moisture resistance

sorry not BMW drivers .... (bloody auto-correct on the cellphone) its actually BMR (Balanced Mode Radiators)

those Kef ones may suit your requirements as long as they have a measure of moisture resistance  :thumbs:

Been researching the bathroom speaker options recently, and although it does not need to be loud, it still needs to overcome the noise from the shower.  Purchased the POLK RC60i last week and extremely impressed with them. Read close to 80 reviews on them as well.

If you replace the lights you will have Music but shower in the dark - does not make sense :sh1tstirrer:

I dont think he wants to replace the lights - you can keep the lights but most people will be able to comparatively easily make holes in the correct size for spot lights or downlighters (usually around 80mm) far easier than for example to make holes for 8" or larger speaker drivers
