Our take on the JBL PartyBox 200 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Power up and party on
Ready to jumpstart the party? Plug a JBL PartyBox 200 powered speaker into an outlet and start rocking. This rugged Bluetooth speaker delivers beefy, hard-hitting sound to get toes tapping. And its three-mode light effects help set the mood.
If anyone wants to sing or play along with the music, the PartyBox has both guitar and microphone inputs. Stream tunes via Bluetooth from your smartphone or tablet. Or plug in a flash drive preloaded with your party mix.
You might use a Bluetooth phone or tablet as the music source most of the time, but you have other options, too. The stereo RCA input lets you connect a CD player or a turntable with built-in phono preamp. A USB port on the back lets you plug in flash drives.
There are two 1/4” input jacks — one for a microphone, the other for a guitar. Volume control knobs let you control their levels. These inputs let you either sing or play along to music already playing through the PartyBox 200. It's Open Mic Night in your living room.
