The Boombox has dual USB charging ports for your devices (smartphone and tablet not included).

This is one Bluetooth speaker that won't shut down before the party ends. The big, bad JBL Boombox can deliver up to 24 hours of non-stop music.

Plus it has dual USB charging ports, so your smartphone and/or tablet can keep the music coming.

Big sound indoors and out

JBL says the Boombox produces “monster sound,” and they're not kidding. The Boombox features two 4” woofers for solid midrange, and two 3/4” tweeters for crisp, clean highs. Dual side-firing passive radiators reinforce the low frequencies, for hard-hitting bass. Thanks to JBL's advanced digital signal processing, the Boombox can project rich, full sound without distortion.

Bluetooth for one — or more

Stream music wirelessly from any smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth to the Boombox. You can even pair it with two devices simultaneously so you and a friend can take turns being the DJ.

Download JBL's free control app to your Apple® or Android™ device, and you have even more options. Create your own impromptu sound system by wirelessly connecting two or more JBL Connect-enabled speakers — like the Xtreme.

Speakerphone and Voice Assist

When you receive a call on your paired phone, the Boombox turns into a speakerphone. Its built-in microphone uses SoundClear® technology to minimize echo and filter out ambient noise so you and your caller can hear each other easily.

Press the Voice Assist button, and access your smartphone's voice command program. Then you can use Siri® with your iPhone®, or Google Now with your Android™ smartphone just by speaking into the Boombox.

I was looking for a bluetooth speaker with enough volume for outdoor listening on the beach. I spoke to Nemo, a Crutchfield advisor, and he asked me a few questions and then made several recommendations. I went with the JBL Boombox and am so glad I did. The sound is amazing, plenty of power for outdoors. I really appreciate the help I got from your advisor, along with great price and 2 day shipping. You can't get all that from Amazon. Thanks Crutchfield.

Pros: Sound clarity at volume.

Crutchfield customer from Indiana on 5/17/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was looking for a something that could be used on the porch for the upcoming summer nights, and a bonus for anything that could travel with us to the lake. I've found once you're outside and more than 5 feet away, so many of the portable speakers sound like a tin can set on top of a cell phone speaker. The sound out of this thing is fantastic, and the outdoor mode bumps up the low end to help the music feel more full when outside. The water resistance makes me a lot more comfortable taking onto a boat as well. It connects easily to bluetooth devices, and while I haven't tried the JBL connect option for pairing multiple speakers, I may try this in the future.

Pros: Fantastic sound Water resistant Great connection options Great battery life

Cons: Expensive Heavy, but not bulky

This speaker is worth its weight in gold

Crutchfield customer from Appleton, WI on 5/3/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Best portable speaker I have ever owned. Words can not explain how great this speaker is 24 hour play time! Looks sweet! Super loud and clear it's so unbelievable. I use this speaker when I shower and do things around the house. I can have speaker in my basement and be two floors up and this speaker still works with the blue tooth clear as day. It's expensive but for sure worth it. Got it on sale so definitely worth it. The sound that comes out of this speaker is insane. If you not sure about buy this speaker... go to Best Buy. The have a floor model by the portable speakers and try out each speaker and you can tell a huge difference between this speaker and other speakers. It's a major difference how great sounding this speaker is. How it sounds in store sounds the same at your own place.

Like it so far. The sound is good but has no stereo image. The weight surprised me, fairly heavy.I would expect a better sound for the price.

Pros: Love the handle. Decent sound, can get loud.

Cons: Heavy, not much of a spatial sounding unit for the money.

This is by far the best portable speaker I have ever owned. I bought 2 of these bad boy. I'm a cook, behind the line it's loud, gressy, an hot. The boombox has no problem handling any of it. Not to mention the bass is outstanding. I alway have one strapped on the back of my 08 jetski. Even with the throttle wide open, the sound and bass still comes through clear as day! Highly recommended this to anyone

Pros: Outstanding sound Outstanding bass Long lasting battery

Great Sound!

Jess K. from Fairfield, CA on 12/11/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Let's start with the price. You're going to have to let go of some cash. With all that being said you get what you pay for. Right out of the box it looks well made. Not too heavy, a little big in size but doable. Comes pre charged so it's good to go as soon as you open it up. Some of the reviews mentioned static in between songs. I have not experienced that. Also some of the reviews complained about the volume not being able to go loud enough. I like my music loud and clear.... And this thing rocks. Oooo and about that BASS!!! Wow!!! It really does sound good you won't be disappointed.

Pros: Great sound. Good bass notes. Super loud.

Cons: Pricey$$$$$$ That's the only reason why I give it a 4 star.

I bought the JBL Boombox to replace my garage boombox that I had for over 25 years. I can't believe the power and thump the JBL provides in such a compact design!! The JBL Connect App is so easy to use and this unit delivers all that you could ask for and is also waterproof so I don't have to worry about it while washing the cars or hanging out by the pool!! A solid Five Star rating to the device and also to Crutchfield for their customer service, best prices, and prompt delivery!!!!! Thank you Carter for your help!! Jeff Thayer

Pros: Everything I hoped for and more!! Amazing sound and very easy to use!!

Great sound, impressive lows and plays forever on a charge

Crutchfield customer from Concord, CA on 6/27/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Nice full range sound with impressive lows. I bought this mainly for camping and the drive-in theater. It is not a petite speaker, but for me it didn't matter. Camping it was awesome. I could have it at a low volume, and it still had a nice solid drum beat. I listen mainly to country. My kids like top 40 and hip hop and when playing this thing produces some serious bass. I had it playing for about 14 hours each day and when I would plug it in at night it still had more than half a charge left. I connected an iPod with a tuner for the drive-in theater. We typically sit in folding chairs, not in the car so we need some audio source. My son commented that it was the first time the drive-in sounded like being in the actual theater. It is nice to have the two USB ports for charging. My phone battery does not last long anymore, so I plug it into it while streaming. If you really start cranking it up, it will back off the bass to protect itself. At that point it is almost too loud anyway. I have Klipsch AW-650's outside which are incredible speakers, but I think I would be almost equally satisfied with one of these on the patio. I am thinking of picking up a second one just to see how they sound paired in stereo. I am very impressed with this speaker.

Pros: Battery life. Bass. USB charging. Water proof.

Cons: If you want to nitpick... no FM Tuner. No EQ

Best of the Best

Scott from Indiana, PA on 1/20/2018

Hands down, this is the best bluetooth speaker I have ever owned. One of these speakers blows away the 2 UE Megaboom speakers I previously owned. The sound on this is crystal clear whether listening at a lower volume or cranking it up and really ticking off the neighbors! The battery life is also incredible as the unit came with about 60% battery and I have yet to charge it after playing it low to mid volume for 6 hours a day for the past 4 days. If you are looking for a top notch bluetooth speaker, look no further than the JBL Boombox.

Pros: Awesome sound, great battery life, great bass

Cons: None

Wow!!!!!!!

Robert from St Louis, MO on 1/13/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Wow!!!!!. Let me start by saying I'm a machinist and I wanted a speaker to listen to at work using my iPod. I purchased the jbl xtreme and was disappointed. It sounded good at home but at work it wasn't nearly loud enough. I had the volume at 100% and could still barely hear it over the machines. Which also drained the battery quick. So I decided to return it and purchase the jbl boombox instead. It blew me away. Sounds perfect at home. Clear crisp bass and perfect highs. Took it to work and it's perfect. Gets very loud and clean and has a lot more bass than I thought it would. It even produces a sub bass. I worked a 12 hour shift and the battery lasted the whole time and the volume was at around 75%. I also love the option of the indoor/outdoor button. The indoor produces more bass while the outdoor tones the bass down and kicks up the highs. I know it's a pricey speaker but you get what you paid for. And I'm in love. I'm a serious music fanatic and listen to a wide variety of music. But my playlist mainly consist of rap and rock. My only problem I'm having now is that I'd like to buy a second one but I gotta convince my wife to let me. I would recommend this speaker to everyone. All my coworkers were impressed too.

Pros: Sound, battery life, size. Did I mention sound.

Cons: None

  • Voice Assistant Integration: The JBL Boombox's built-in mic can even act as an extension of the microphone on your Apple iPhone 4S and newer or compatible Android smartphone, so you can access Siri & Android's digital voice assistant (like Google Now). Simply press the Play/Pause button to activate your device's digital voice assistant. You will need to set this feature up through the JBL Connect App on your Apple iOS or Android mobile device.
Note: When the digital voice assistant is enabled through the app, the Play/Pause control function for wireless music streaming is disabled.

JBL Connect App with JBL Connect+: Use the JBL Connect App (for Apple iOS 8.0+ or Android OS 5.0+) to wirelessly link multiple JBL Connect+ enabled speakers, like the JBL Boombox, together for amplified sound. You are able to link two speakers together so each speaker acts as a left or right channel for stereo sound. You can also link up to 100 speakers together so each speaker plays back both left and right channels for playback of the same Bluetooth source from multiple speakers. Software updates for the speaker can also be done using the JBL Connect app.

Note: The JBL Boombox requires a firmware update to utilize the JBL Connect+ feature.

IPX7 Waterproof: The JBL Boombox features a rugged, rubber housing and is covered with durable waterproof fabric. The JBL Boombox carries an IPX7 waterproof rating and can even be submerged in water (up to 1m for up to 30 minutes). 

Note: To ensure that the JBL Boombox is waterproof, please remove all cable connections and tightly close the cap; exposing the JBL Boombox to liquids without doing so may result in permanent damage to the speaker. And do not expose the JBL Boombox to water while charging, as doing so may result in permanent damage to the speaker or power source.

Aux Input: In addition to built-in Bluetooth, the JBL Boombox is fitted with a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of almost any portable audio player with a headphone output.

Dual USB Charging Ports: The JBL Boombox is capable of recharging the battery of two mobile devices (like your smartphone or tablet) simultaneously from the speaker's dual USB-A (5V/2.0A) ports. Now you don't need to carry an extra charger to keep your devices powered up. The USB ports do not support audio playback.

Rechargeable Battery: The JBL Boombox stereo speaker has a built-in, rechargeable Li-ion polymer battery (20,000mAh/74WH) that provides more than 24 hours of playback time on a single charge. The battery is easily recharged using the included AC power adapter. A full battery charge takes approximately 6.5 hours. The AC power adapter can also be used to power the speaker.

I chose this because it is waterproof and has the longest run time. Important for a extended sail trip. Also, I love thumping bass and Benn G recommended it in the Crutchfield catalogue. I'm partial to Bose, but wasn't impressed with their waterproof or run time. [ Daniel  May 19, 2019 ]

Q
is there any easy way to add an fm tuner to this without an internet connection?
[ cory  Feb 04, 2018 ]

A
A portable FM tuner like the Eton Executive could be used with this speaker to listen to FM Radio: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_710TVLRIII/item.html Also, some smart phones come with an FM tuner built into them. If you have one of those and have turned on that tuner, then it could be used here without needing an internet connection. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101
