Sometimes it is necessary to “start” a party off properly – for these purposes, high fidelity of sound is already fading into the background, and the main thing is the speaker’s ability to pump the room.
Or even sound the lawn (if the speaker has a built-in battery) – nobody canceled outdoor recreation. Our new selection contains the ten best PartyBox speakers: they won’t make a hole in your pocket, and they will allow you to have fun from the heart.
So, the rating of the speakers for parties (remember that the epidemic is still underway, the number of contacts must be limited – so while these speakers will serve well for your family’s parties, and as restrictive measures are removed, they will entertain the guests as well)!
10. Panasonic SC-TMAX10GSK
Powerful, harmonious and affordable – this is the whole Panasonic SC-TMAX10GSK. The speaker is equipped with a built-in CD-player, FM-tuner and USB-input, modern Bluetooth 5.0 has not been forgotten, and a pair of 60 mm and 200 mm speakers (in the woofer, for better response, by the way, a double voice coil is used) provide good pumping of the hall. The proprietary AirQuake Bass bass reflex guarantees no “thumping”, and 2 x 150 watts of power and 10.2 weights speak of the seriousness of the design.
9. Blaupunkt PA15
Similar to a suitcase with wheels, the Blaupunkt PA15 is marketed by the company as the “Professional Audio System”. Well, the thing came out quite modern and well-made – the model weighs as much as 18 kg, so you can forget about the resonances of the case. This is largely determined by the use of the battery – the system can work autonomously, up to 3.5 hours of operation is allowed, and the speaker will be fully charged in 9 hours. So, the system is also suitable for outdoor trips – this is where the form-factor of the “transportable suitcase” comes in handy. The system can work via Bluetooth, the column is equipped with an FM radio, reads microSD cards and has a line-in. The sound quality is very high.
8.JBL Boombox 2 squad
“A compact and elegant party star.” The JBL Boombox 2 squad won’t overload your hands while delivering an overwhelmingly powerful sound. Add IPX7 water protection and a built-in battery for up to 24 hours of continuous playback – and we get a real breakthrough for this market segment. If the power is low, you can connect other similar speakers “in a chain” – however, the existing set of a pair of 0.75 “and 4” drivers performs very confidently (the frequency response lies in the range from 50 to 20,000 Hz).
7. Marshall Tufton
The velvety sound of the Marshall Tufton is hard to confuse with any other party speaker, and the speaker’s retro design is another factor in moving the scales towards the firm. The system achieves 80 watts of power (absolutely honest power!) And guarantees a frequency response from 40 to 20,000 Hz. The battery will allow you to function on a single charge up to 20 hours. Simplicity and elegance – with one “but”: the speaker is not designed for large halls.
6. LG XBOOM ON88
LG’s newest flagship, the XBOOM ON88, combines DJ functions and allows owners (as the company claims) to be the master of the dance floor. The audio capabilities are quite decent – the three-way speaker with Dolby Audio has a high power, and the option of creating playlists from several Bluetooth-connected devices at once looks like a real “cherry on the cake”. Of course, you can apply DJ effects to any recording, as well as remove the voice from the track (to use karaoke) – so the LG XBOOM ON88 seems to be a really ultimate solution in this price range.
5. Ultimate Ears HyperBoom
The success of the Ultimate Ears Boom 3 and MegaBoom 3 speakers prompted the company to release a truly powerful system – HyperBoom. This column will cope with an average room, and “away from the socket” will work for up to a day (charging one hundred percent will be very fast – this will take only 2.5 hours). An impressive array of speakers (2 x 4.5 “woofers, 2 x 3.5” passive radiators, 2 x 1 “tweeters) are capable of delivering up to 100 dB SPL. Well, the rigidity of the case is such that the speaker can withstand a fall from one and a half meters without any problems. The system’s sound is very coherent and accurate, and Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music or Deezer clients are already built in.
4. DreamWave Rockstar
Rockstar’s “indestructible” DreamWave is housed in an ultra-tough, rugged IPX5 certified enclosure. The model has a built-in battery for as much as 26,000 mAh and develops an honest 80 watts of power. The sound talents of the speakers are excellent – the sound is collected, clear and detailed. The device has already become a classic and deserved a real ovation from the audience.
The huge JBL PartyBox 1000 uses as many as four speakers: two 7 “midrange, 12” woofer directed to the floor, and a high-frequency compression driver, so beloved by the company. BassBoost mode adds scale, and the TrueWireless Stereo connection lets you hook up a second PartyBox 1000 wirelessly. The sound of the JBL PartyBox 1000 literally blows away from the chair, and the front surface of the speaker, covered with a colored LED matrix, can create unique lighting effects (for controlling the backlight, a touch bracelet is included that reacts to gestures and touches). A very cool performance – at a power of 1,100 W and with a frequency response from 30 to 20,000 Hz, the reproduction is like a “roller coaster”.
2. Mackie FreePlay LIVE
Producer of speaker systems for studios, Mackie is widely known in a narrow professional environment. With FreePlay LIVE, the company also enters the household market – the speaker has a Bluetooth interface, uses 1 “(polyethylene naphthalate cone) and 6” (paper cone) speakers and reaches 75 W of power. The speaker plays from 60 to 20,000 Hz and does so with absolute neutrality and honesty. Yes, the system is very expensive, but the reputation of the manufacturer and the quality are more important.
1. Sony MHC-V90DW
170 cm of “height” and as much as 2,000 watts of total power – Sony MHC-V90DW is capable of inspiring “shock and awe”. Almost any connection options, even support for DSD format, TV connection via HDMI, instant pairing of Bluetooth devices via NFC … It is not entirely clear why there is a DVD player here, but all other things being equal, it is difficult to imagine what else you can dream of at a party – the Sony MHC-V90DW’s “wall of sound” is excellent.
