JBL Xtreme 2

The Xtreme 2 is waterproof — and we mean waterproof.

The brawny JBL Xtreme 2 Bluetooth speaker can kick out high-energy sound at the beach, poolside, on the slopes — wherever the fun takes you. It's completely waterproof, designed to withstand full immersion. A sturdy built-in metal base keeps the speaker stable as it pumps out the tunes.

Power to go

The Xtreme 2 can charge your smartphone via its built-in USB port to keep the music playing. The high-capacity battery delivers up to 15 hours of speaker operation between charges. And the detachable strap has a bottle opener built into the buckle, so you can recharge yourself, too.

Big sound with impressive bass

Wide-open spaces need big sound. The Xtreme 2 has two 3/4" tweeters and two 2-3/4" woofers, bi-amped to deliver your music with clarity and detail. Dual passive radiators help it kick out big, bold bass. And don't worry about cranking up the volume. JBL's advanced digital signal processing ensures the Xtreme 2 can project rich, full sound without distortion.p>

JBL Connect app

Download the free JBL Connect app to your Apple® or AndroidT device to get things rolling. The app lets you pair two Xtreme 2's for stereo sound. Or pair even more compatible JBL speakers — up to 100 speakers! (And we should know — we tested it.) The app also lets you use your phone's built-in voice control assistant software to select music via simple spoken commands.

Clear talk

When your paired smartphone receives a call, the Xtreme 2 turns into a speakerphone. Its built-in microphone uses SoundClear® technology to minimize echo and filter out ambient noise. Both you and your caller will enjoy a conversation with clear, natural sound.

Crutchfield customer from Columbia, SC on 5/31/2019

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

This is a perfect unit for taking to the mountains , the shore or just the backyard. It was purchased after the hard drive on the old I-pod Classic began its death spin and we decided to transfer our cds to an extra smartphone we had after updating our wireless contract. The bluetooth is great but its also nice that there is an AUX input on the unit if needed. We looked at the more powerful JBL unit but figured that would be volume overkill and not all the neighbors are interested in hearing the White Album on a summer evening. This unit is plenty loud enough as it is and much more compact. Very pleased that even MP3 files sound clear and resonant. The audio software on our phone has an equalizer but we always bypass it because the sound is much richer played directly through the unit. Doubt we will ever want to connect 100 satellite units but its nice to know we could if we ever, well, decide to restage Woodstock.

Pros: Sounds great, compact size, all the volume anyone (except perhaps Black Sabbath) could use.

Cons: The quick start manual is a bit squirrely. It's written in about 10 languages (but no Klingon) although we understand companies need to do that when they sell products worldwide. There's a lot about the connections and the like but it would be useful to include more info about charging times and how long battery can be expected to last at various volume levels. There's no mention at all about the charging LEDS and had to go online to ferret out that info.

This is my first experience with a bluetooth speaker. The first impression is the loudness of the speaker. The sound is very clear and with no distortions. The bass is incredible.

Pros: Sound, and details in design.

Cons: None.

CRUTCHFIELD picks me out another winner!!!!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this one on a recommendation from a Crutchfield associate. I told him what I wanted to use it for and this is the one he said would be great for my usage and he was right. It is awesome. Great clear sound and we use it on our deck all the time, especially when grilling.There is ample volume and the phone charging is a plus to the product. I can't wait to take it out on the pontoon boat. No worries about water splashing on it. It is waterproof. THANKS CRUTCHFIELD!

Pros: Great clear sound, ample volume, charges phones and is waterproof.

Cons: No adjustment for fine tuning base and treble.

The battery life is as not good as my charge 3, no where close to the 15 hours try to say. sound is not much different either, I do like the carry strap. Between the 2, I wish they still had the charge 3.

Pros: Carry strap

Cons: Loudness, battery life, price the smaller ones are just as good without paying as much.

I think the JBL Xtreme 2 is as well made as the Charge 3, which I already own. It could probably be a bit louder, but it does sound great and I highly recommend it!

Pros: Quality Sound Ease of Bluetooth connectivity

Cons: Could be a bit louder

As they say you get what you pay for!!

Clint from Carlsbad, NM on 9/9/2018

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

I purchased 2 of these speakers & I would highly recommend them to anyone. These speakers are heavy & (that is a plus not a minus) Fit finish & appearance is amazing. They sound outstanding & the fact that they are waterproof is a major plus. We were using them outdoors & an unexpected thunder storm rolled in & in our haste to get our pop up shade down it began to rain & could not get to them before it started. Every one was freaking out cause they were outside in the rain & still playing. Panick turned into amazement. So if you are looking for a high end portable speaker then quit looking & but these. Yes they are expensive but absolutely without question worth every penny. As they say you get what you pay for & in this case I received an outstanding set of speakers that I am proud to own.

Pros: Build quality, waterproof, great sound, looks, party mode

Cons: Are you kidding

Great speaker. Loud, clear, crisp audio in a portable form factor. Fills up large rooms with ease and when in stereo mode it really shines. Don't be scared of this price tag, it's worth every dollar.

Pros: Clear loud crisp audio even at high volumes.

Cons: Not much to say here.

Features

Portable Waterproof Design w/ Shoulder Strap: The JBL Xtreme 2 Bluetooth speaker features an ultra-rugged rubberized housing and a durable fabric material grille which will hold up indoors and outdoors. The Xtreme 2 is IPX7 waterproof rated which means no more worrying about rain or spills; you can even submerge the Xtreme 2 in water up to 1 meter (3') for up to 30 minutes. The included shoulder strap lets you carrying it with you on a hike, to the pool, the patio, the porch, on a picnic, and more. The shoulder strap even features an integrated bottle opener for added convenience.

Notes:
  • The Xtreme 2 can only be submerged in water for a short period of time. If the speaker is playing and then submerged in water, it will sound muffled, as anything submerged in water would sound like. Submerging the speaker more than 1 meter and for more than 30 minutes will damage the speaker as the water will penetrate through the waterproof barriers due to pressure.
  • To ensure that the JBL Xtreme2 is waterproof, please remove all cable connections and tightly close the cap; exposing the Xtreme 2 to liquids without doing so may result in permanent damage to the speaker. Do not expose the Xtreme 2 to water while charging, as doing so may result in permanent damage to the speaker or power source.

Room Filling Sound: The JBL Xtreme 2 employs digital signal processing to generate room-filling audio from a compact speaker. Using four active drivers (including two 0.75" tweeters and two 2.5" woofers), a built-in 20W x 2ch amplifier, and dual 3" side-firing passive radiators, the JBL Xtreme 2 delivers room-filling, full-range JBL sound with big bass response. The JBL Xtreme 2 Bluetooth speaker can play from either a vertical or horizontal position, so you can place it in a variety of locations for great sound.

Bluetooth 4.2: The JBL Xtreme 2 is a self-powered Bluetooth (version 4.1) speaker which supports wireless audio streaming (A2DP 1.3/AVRCP 1.6) and hands-free communication (HFP 1.6/HSP 1.2), along with digital voice assistant integration for iPhone (Siri) and Android (Google Now). Up to two devices can be connected with the Xtreme 2 at once, so you and your friends can take turns streaming music. Once paired, the JBL Xtreme 2 will automatically re-connect with paired devices when in wireless range (up to 33').

  • Wireless Audio Streaming: The JBL Xtreme 2 portable speaker streams stereo music wirelessly from Bluetooth source devices; such as your smartphone, tablet, computer, laptop, or other device. You'll be able to stream stored music libraries, music apps, and other audio content. You'll also be able to control Play, Pause, & Skip functions from the speaker. You will need to continue to use your Bluetooth source device for advanced music navigation and to view song/artist information.
  •  Hands-Free Communication: The JBL Xtreme 2 has a built-in microphone with echo and noise cancellation technologies, so you can use it as a hands-free speakerphone for your smartphone (including iPhone or Android). Use the Xtreme 2 to answer phone calls, talk on Skype, or with Facetime. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to view video calls, manually enter phone number, and control advanced phone functions.
  • Voice Assistant Integration: The JBL Xtreme 2'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 9.0+ or Android OS 5.0+) to wirelessly link multiple JBL Connect+ enabled speakers, like the Xtreme 2, 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.

USB Charging Port: The JBL Xtreme 2 is capable of recharging the battery of your Bluetooth mobile device from the speaker's built-in USB type-A port (rated at 5V/2A). Now you don't need to carry an extra charger to keep your smartphone or tablet powered up. The USB charging port is located behind a waterproof rubber cover.

Note: This USB port does not support audio playback. There is also a mircoUSB port for service purposes only.

Aux Input: In addition to built-in Bluetooth, the JBL Xtreme 2 is fitted with a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of almost any portable audio player with a headphone jack or analog audio output. The Aux input is located behind a waterproof rubber cover.

Battery + AC Power: The JBL Xtreme 2 Bluetooth speaker has a built-in Li-ion rechargeable battery (3.7V/10,000mAh) that provides more than 15 hours of playback time on a single charge. The battery is easily recharged from the included AC power adapter; a full battery charge takes approximately 3.5 hours. The AC power adapter can also be used to power the speaker.

LED Indicators: Clearly visible LEDs let you know when the built-in battery needs to be recharged, as well as when the JBL Xtreme 2 is in Bluetooth listening or pairing mode.
