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.

Design

1.volume

24628.6cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
8.weight

5.25kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
9.height

254.5mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
A passive radiator is a type of driver (speaker) that doesn't have a voice coil and a magnet. The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep bass tones.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
