JBL Boombox review: specs and price

The JBL Boombox speaker is one of the most powerful Bluetooth speakers currently on the market, with four active transducers and two JBL bass radiators that deliver major sound with heart-pounding bass. If that’s not enough, though, it can also connect to over 100 JBL Connect+ enabled speakers for even more sound and power. Multipoint is included, too, allowing you to connect to several devices at a time so that you and your friends can take turns being the music DJ.

This portable Bluetooth speaker has a tough exterior to guard against accidental bumps and drops, making it ideal for the outdoors. You needn’t worry about accidental water damage either, as it has an IPX7 waterproof rating that protects it from the rain or even being completely submerged in water. Its built-in rechargeable battery supports up to 24 hours of straight playtime, so it is perfect for scenic all-day jam sessions. It even has a unique outdoor sound mode that will increase the range of the music being played and pump up the bass to impressive volumes.
