Probably, it's kind of rude and not everyone wants to hear your music. Also most conventions have strict rules about NO MUSIC PLAYERS and the like

Yes/No. If you had them outside say in the parking lot areas, you can often see people carrying speakers along. I see this at one of our cons up here, as there are evening raves so people I suppose are generally alright with it, not to mention the outdoor atmosphere sort of drowns it out.

But if you're elsewhere, like in the dealer rooms, hotel hallways or panels, I'd say it's considerably rude for most people. And it's even worse if people are dancing along to whatever you might play, as they're probably obstructing a clear walking path for people trying to get around 'em.

So, in short - it's probably safer to not bring along your speakers in consideration of the other con-goers.

You're usually not allowed in convention halls. Check your cons policies, but indoor areas usually prohibit it for several reasons.

I would check your local con rules though.

It's probably better if you don't. Even if there are no rules that directly say you can't, as other people here have said, it's kind of rude/annoying to many of the other congoers. I've been to cons where there were no rules against it, so people did play music of their own, and it got really agitating -- ten different songs playing, fifty different people yelling over them.

More likely yes than no.

I've been to cons where people played music in one area, and have had con-goers join in on dance parties and stuff; that, I don't mind. Incidentally, I find those Ocarina players pretty unbearable... Nobody wants to hear you play Saria's Song for hours on end. And there's no playing "quietly," either--those notes travel like no one's business.

If there's no legitimate reason to be doing so (e.g.hosting a dance or rave, a cosplay that involves music and in a way that makes sense to add it, adding some at a photoshoot), then yes, it's pretty annoying. Extremely so indoors, tolerable but not wanted outdoors.

If it were music or sound effects related to your costume I could understand the need for speakers, other than that I'm not sure why you couldn't just use headphones...

If there are no explicit rules against it then you're obviously free to do as you please. Still I'd recommend keeping it to a reasonable volume, make sure there's nothing overtly offensive in the music being played, and respect the wishes of others around you. If there are enough complaints event staff will likely ask you to stop.

Depends if it's blasting 24/7, can definitely be douchey looking if you do it just walking around lol (unlike it's part of your cosplay!). I saw this awesome Kill Bill group do it with the theme song walking around at Fanime and it was amazing. Also if you bring it just for dance battles is kewl tew.
