Our take on the Yamaha PDX-B11 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
You don't need much to start a party — just a smartphone or tablet and a Yamaha PDX-B11 portable speaker system. Stream tunes wirelessly to the PDX-B11 from your favorite Bluetooth-compatible portable player or laptop. The system is compatible with iPhones®, iPads® as well as Android™ smartphones and tablets. The compact PDX-B11 runs on AC power or batteries. Listen to it around the house or grab the metal handle and go!
Inside the unique octagonal case is a powerful 4" woofer to punch out mids and lows, and a 1-3/8" tweeter to deliver the high frequencies. And because it's a mono system, the sound is concentrated so it can really kick. The system delivers up to eight hours of non-stop music with 6 "AA" batteries (available separately). Or use the AC adapter to keep the music going when your at home.
