I swore my friends had one of these at a party this weekend and said you could link more than one together for all around sound.

No fair!

I recently bought something directly from Jlabs (Board of Circuits) and with the item I got a coupon for 75% off the Crasher. My final price would have been $50.

And here woot is selling it for LESS than direct from the company, with a coupon!

I have to chime in, I have now bought 3 of the pyle water proof ones that have been on woot and 1 sale a day, the fact that I have now been paddling about 12 times with the 1st unit in the ocean and it's still rocking says it all.. I would NOT waste my $$ on a non waterproof, cause dust will get inside of the JLab and ruin it like my jambox and the westinghouse one I tried. the pyle is by far the best for the $$$ bar none !!!

Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20kHz? I'd like to point out that high end Martin Logan speakers have that range for $5000 but I'd wager a king's ransom that a dinky 4" bluetooth speaker doesn't. Furthermore when a frequency response is listed without its variation across that spectrum at a given power, like: ±3 db for example, there's no frame of reference.
Despite this, it still seems like a good deal, I just dislike the misleading specifications.

This has been happening MORE and MORE online, ESP with Amazon, Padded reviews where some people only shop for highest reviewed products sometimes. I hate that

I just spent $29.99 for the normally 49.99/69.99 Auvio 4000375. I was thinking that something with a battery like that should also be able to charge a cell phone (but doesn't). Battery life is 6 hours. Freq response 100-15k. This looks like a deal.

Would this be good for sitting out on the deck with some friends? Not a big party, just a few buddies drinkin' some beers and grillin' some burgers.

Looking for something that I can connect my iPhone too and stream some Pandora.

And if that's not to your cat's taste, you can flavor it up with some of that Non-GMO Himalana Rock Salt I saw a couple weeks ago...

Got a link?

Does the Pyle charge up USB devices too?

I am curious how weather resistant this is. I would like to take it out on the boat and bike.
Also, does anyone see a weight on this one? I am thinking of getting it just for the extra battery power, since iPwn drains to 20% before noon these days. Speaking of which, does its USB output 2amps for iPad charging?

Neither these, nor the aforementioned Pyles, made the list, but at 1/4 to 1/2 the price these might still have some uses. Probably not on the boat, however. :-P

I bought a black Jlab crasher from Groupon for my husband to take to work. He works outdoors and with a lot of dust and debris in construction. Although it never goes through rain or bad weather, it does get beat up. He loves it. I'm deciding if I want one for me since his works so well. He even charges his phone from it when necessary. This is $10 less than I paid for his.....

I hardly think this is really a concern for people buying a $40 bluetooth speaker. But yeah I doubt this thing goes much below 100Hz with much authority.

Duh. From everything i see, this turns your ipwn into a transistor radio (sound quality).

Kudos to woot for posting the Ahrs. rating, but what is the voltage? Power = VA, remember. ;-)

If you want tunes all day, and ipwn charging, check this out:

in for one. for the price it has to be reasonably usable. it is obviously not high end audiophile equipment. one wonders why people over think somethings on woot. later people!

If you pay $5000 for speakers and they only have 20hz-20khz range, you have been ripped off. Unless they are super efficent or something. 2, 4-inch speakers and a sub-woofer can easily obtian flatter response over 20hz to 20khz than your device is likely able to output.

Wow. I'm not sure what fantasy-land you're living in. Unless you go through some major work using non-standard sub-woofer enclosure, driver and amp building techniques, you'll be hard pressed to even reach a smooth, clean, powerful 20hz. On top of that, it'll cost you dearly.

Also, a couple 4" drivers aren't going to supply you with the upper frequencies you need.

The original posters point stands. You are not going to get 20hz-20khz response with this speaker. It's impossible. There. I've said it.

If they're using that figure at all maybe they're talking about the amplifier and without THD figures it still doesn't mean anything.

I only wish that even cheap electronics like this were required to provide full audio specifications so that people could accurately compare products.

I guess they figure that since you're using a phone as a playback device and you're using bluetooth then you don't care about audio quality. LOL!

All this being said, this seems like it's worth this ridiculously low price just for convenience and portability.

All of you considering this speaker, please realize that the bass WILL be lacking because it's just impossible to produce out of a device with drivers this size even with a couple of passive radiators.

I'll buy one just to see what it's all about and for some music out by the BBQ. :-)

I don't expect the sound of a $150 speaker to come out of these, even though some people are comparing this to much more expensive speakers. I expect to get exactly what I pay for.

I'm in for one... The reviews I've found that compare this to other brands in the price range are quite favorable. Since its almost half off I'll try out 2-day shipping to see if it comes before I go camping Friday.

The wife and I talked about getting a bluetooth speaker this week end and I've been looking at the small Satechi models but today this one is priced the same thanks to Woot, it should be fine

Dude, the Person that typed that information probably doesn't know what frequency response is. Besides, they're mostly talking to people who don't know the difference between frequency response and the real world applications of a flux capacitor.
