The UE MEGABOOM (pictured in blue) is IXP7-certified waterproof, delivers 360° sound, and keeps the party going with 20 hours of battery life.
True to its name, the UE MEGABOOM packs a powerful punch. Your phone or tablet supplies the tunes wirelessly as the speaker pumps out party-fueling 360° sound. It goes all night long with up to 20 hours of battery life. But this beast of a Bluetooth speaker can also travel anywhere.
First off, it weighs less than two pounds. It's also cleverly designed — you can grab and carry the speaker as easily as your favorite beverage. And the UE MEGABOOM is stain-resistant and IPX7-certified waterproof. That means you can enjoy it at the beach, the pool, or even while relaxing in the tub or shower.
While the UE MEGABOOM excels on bass-heavy tracks, this speaker can handle your whole playlist. Just press play. Two 2" full-range drivers cover the highs and mids, while two passive radiators reinforce the low frequencies. Meanwhile you can just set the speaker down, then move around and mingle. With up to 100 feet of wireless Bluetooth range, you're not tethered to the speaker with your phone.
Still not enough boom? Wait, really? Okay. With the UE MEGABOOM app for iOS® and Android™, you can stream simultaneously to two UE MEGABOOMs and nearly double the volume. Or use the app to make them a stereo pair for a really fun listening experience. The app also lets you adjust EQ or set an alarm.
If someone calls and interrupts the music, you can answer it right on the UE MEGABOOM. It doubles as a speakerphone. Give your friends directions, ask them to bring more ice, and get back to the tunes. You'll hear the person on the other end clearly, and the UE MEGABOOM's built-in microphone lets you talk to them with ease.
Average Customer Review(s):
Great sound qaulity and battery life
Great product...this was 2nd purchase...1st for myself..2nd as a gift....great sound.... battery is outstanding as charge lasts a long time
Pros: Great sound and battery life..
Great speaker!! Very user friendly Amaizing price!!
Killer sound, amazing battery life, super durable and portable. A steel at the sale price! My brother has a Bose soundlink and we tested them side by side and agreed that overall the UE Megaboom was the winner. You won't be disappointed.
Pros: Sound, portability, durability, size, battery life, ease of use, looks.
An amazing blue tooth speaker that has incredible sound and battery longevity. I have to get another one for sure. PERFECT!!!
Pros: Ultimate Bluetooth speaker. Great bass and highs. Very impressive sound indeed. Easy to transport and the App works fine.
Cons: None that come to mind.
This is a fine speaker. It delivers clear, loud sound. It's waterproof and goes well in my bathroom while I shower - I don't worry about it being damp or even wet. It takes up a tiny amount of space, just three inches square. It pairs easily with my iPod. Its battery lasts many hours. It recharges quickly. It's easy to handle and move - my hand fits around it. It has a friendly drumbeat sound to respond when I turn it on or off. Crutchfield delivered it in just a few days with no shipping charge. It's my second UE Boom speaker - I like the UE Boom so much that I bought the UE MegaBoom
Pros: clear loud sound, waterproof, small space, pairs easily, long battery life, recharges quickly, easy to handle and move, friendly response sounds
Great deep sound. Super loud at only 1/2 volume. Awesome purchase.
Pros: Great sound in small package
Didn't like it as much as it's little brother the UE Boom 2 and the Bose Revolve
Great wireless speakers. These are my second set (2). The first set are UE Boom (first generation). Other reason for the purchase is price. The only caveat is the UE Megaboom APP. To me hard to navigate or use the App.
Exceeded all expectations-- packs a quality sonic punch in a pretty small package. I twinned it to an identical second unit and wow! Great for use around the hot tub
Pros: Sound quality and volume. Good app
Cons: None yet visible and I now own two of these
Its exactly what iI was looking for in a bluetooth speaker. Had several other ones and was not satisfied until I bought this UE Megaboom.
I may have used this product six times over the course of a year and a half and it will not hold a charge. That would not be so bad, if you could just replace the battery without having to solder. Very disappointed in this product and brand.
Pros: Sounds great!!
Cons: For the money, not durable
I arrived home and heard my wife watching a movie on our big home theater system, only to find out she's actually watching her tiny laptop and the only audio was the UE MEGABOOM! This thing cranks. Thanks, Crutchfield!
Pros: Great sound, great price!
HANDS DOWN ONE OF THE BEST SPEAKER'S I HAVE PURCHASED... MONEY WELL SPENT...
Not as loud as I expected would like more volume for the price
Love this speaker, big bold sound. We have 2 of the smaller speakers for each kid, and wanted a larger one for the house..best purchase ever!
These speakers are excellent! My fiancée and I are pretty much throwing our own wedding so I purchased two UE Megabooms with the idea of eliminating the DJ. They're very impressive in our nearly 8000 sq. ft. backyard. They play amazing highs and mids. However, this isn't the speaker for you if you want aggressive lows. I honestly don't think that they were made for deep bass. They stream exceptionally when our devices our connected to the WiFi at home. The app is easy to manage and it is very impressive to hear the 360° sound and how clear it is the further you are from the speakers. I absolutely love this product and yeah, they're a little pricey, but it's well worth it!
Pros: Sound, ability to sync multiple devices to one source, range
Great speakers works very well single and even better as a pair. The sound is amazing and the it looks nice too. Will highly recommend these portable waterproof speakers to the audio enthusiasts.
Pros: Portable and waterproof. Available in four attractive colors.
A bit light on the bass, but overall a quality sound.
Cons: Light on the bass
i purchased ONE "mega" for my wife as a gift for Christmas (we enjoy our music in the outdoors and, until now, have had very limited quality of sound). IMMEDIATELY after hearing it in and around the house i ordered 2 more! The sound is superior to any single unit that i have found in the past (and i consider myself an Audiophile)! A simple rotation of the speaker, or just moving around a bit, increases the range of frequency to extents i have never found in such a compact device. Simply put, you MUST hear it to believe it! We discovered with two, in tandem, not only was the sound quality/level increased but stereo achievable. You MUST try! With Crutchfield's guarantees and great customer service reputation, how could you go wrong?!
Pros: Sound. Portability. Quality. Wireless OR direct line in.
Cons: Uses a battery, but what doesn't these days?!
Good powerful speaker is worth the money out of the speaker found the right one.
Product arrived on time. After opening the box, the product came with a nice protective cylindrical box. The product itself had a good rugged feeling. After downloading the UE app for iphone, the full connectivity took little longer than expected. The equalizers within the app, is ok and does not have wide range to choose from. I tested the megaboom with different kinds of music. I would rate the product above average in terms of quality of music output. Considering the high price for a speaker, I was expected better low frequency response but it was ok. The primary reason for low rating is that the product won't charge (even through overnight charging) and yet the display on my iphone UE app and "+/-" touch on device said it is at 40%. The speaker eventually died after few hours of operation. I couldn't figure out the tap functionality (I tried couple times) as I was too focused on the charging issue. The one star is for Crutchfield's quick customer service response and easy return.
Pros: Rugged look and feeling Loud volume
Cons: Defective item with charging problem Low frequency response can be better
Not as loud as I would like it to be.
Pros: Water and dirt proof
Cons: Not loud enough
Good product Bought two to run in stereo which works fairly easy with the UE app. (Why I chose these after research) Speakers seem to run forever on single charge, sound quality is rich and full. Was a bit disappointed with total volume, am concerned that sound will not be loud enough for outdoor patio come summer ? Good value at speaker sale price. Marginal if paying full bust out retail.
Pros: Excellent battery life on single charge Capability to use 2 speakers in stereo Rich sound quality
Cons: Max volume could be better
Great portable outdoor speaker for use around grill, fire pit, and on pier. Very good sound for a portable. Have yet to exceed the battery life in usual use.
Pros: Portable, sound quality, battery life
Cons: No charge port for devices.
First, I am also soooo grateful to Crutchfield; they really got me the item within 2 days! TWO TWO TWO! And I live in the US Virgin Islands. I could not believe my eyes. This speaker gives great sound!! I absolutely love it. I would have loved a volume control button on the device itself.
Sounds amazing battery last a ling time can pair multiple speakers togather
Pros: Battery life
Cons: None at this point
I own two megabooms. Sound great. One note to remember. Make sure both speakers have current and/or same firmware to sync.
Pros: Great sound. Very simple connection.
Actually, I like this device, but it was purchased to work with a UE Roll, which it did until the latest firmware update. Logitech decided to pull the rug out from under all the "mixed speaker" users. This device no longer works with the UE Roll. As for the Boom, buyer beware. Logitech can ruin your day with the next software release. I just spent a hour with their tech support. Conclusion: "Tough, you cant roll the update back and we're not changing it." Don't you hate it when a respected company leaves you out in the cold with an update and doesn't care.
Pros: Sounds Nice
Cons: Logitech drops features on a whim
Excellent sound , Excellent range of connection, 360 sound and high level
This things sounds fantastic, and I can listen to it for days before recharging. Awesome!
Pros: Great sound, long battery life, the app from UE to control it is very handy.
Best Bluetooth speaker I have purchased. Great sound, crisp and clear. The sound fills the room. Will be getting another very soon to link them together.
Pros: Portable Great sound Perfect size
Great size, Great sound. Easy to use
Great speaker. Perfect to use around the house or in the garage or with the iPad to watch shows.
Great product, great service, fast delivery!
It's been a year since l bought my UE Megaboom and it is absolutely the best investment I've made on any bluetooth speaker! I originally got it to use around the house, but when I realized how great the sound was I decided to try it at work and got great results. I use it every day at an average of about 8 hours a day at home and at work in an elementary school cafeteria kitchen with the volume cranked up almost all the way. I found that listening to music with clear sound is an excellent way to get our crew and student helpers in good work moods. A definite plus for the workplace! With my usage a full charge will last me almost 2 days . This speaker has the ability to fully charge in a little more than 2 hours while in use. It is also very durable outdoors in windy and rainy weather when I'm doing yardwork or washing the car. The waterproof feature comes in very handy when I need to give it a light scrub down every so often to keep it looking brand new like when I first received it. The UE Megaboom delivers great sound for its size and must personally heard to fully appreciate it. Along with purchasing this product I have also received surperb customer service and support from Crutchfield and the Ultimate Ears company. I use the speaker to stream a wide range of music from hard rock, to entertaining dinner with background music, to putting our two kids and us to sleep at night with spa relaxation sounds. It is by far the best bluetooth speaker out there. It's awesome!
Love it ganna get another one so I can link up two
Pros: Very loud and lots bass
I picked this particular model because of one of the reviews that suggested it was perfect for its use and told me to ignore the criticism of the audiophiles. I would echo that same sentiment. If you were looking for perfect sound outdoors, then you need powered to outdoor speakers and not a Bluetooth unit. However if you're looking for good sound by the pool, the ocean, or any other reasonable outside expectation, this is a fantastic choice.
Pros: Portability. Loudness. Battery life.
Cons: By design, it is not a small unit.
This is an outstanding product. The sound is rich, with lots of volume, and surprisingly good bass. Honestly, you won't believe that sound that good can come from a speaker this small. It is worth the money. I am buying another.
Pros: Portable, doesn't need an internet connection or wifi to play - you can stream using bluetooth directly from your phone. Great sound.
Cons: Can't think of any.
I bought my first UE Megaboom at a cell phone store. After listening to half a dozen other offerings I chose the Megaboom. It had the frequency coverage I wanted, the volume I wanted, and pairing it with my phone was no problem at all. One thing the Megaboom had that no other offering had was a filling low end. The bass and mid-range of this speaker was far better than anything else offered, and that included two top of the line name brands. The clarity is remarkable, again smoking the competition. After hearing that there was an app that allowed me to pair with another megaboom I bought my second one from Crutchfield. That alone should tell you how much I liked the first one. The app works well, and I am really enjoying having music throughout the house.
Pros: Great sound Good battery life Easy Bluetooth pairing
Have had our blue Megaboom as the primary speaker in husband's '88 Mazda Truck. It's been in the boat 3 times, and camping twice. Ran it allllll day while fishing in the morning, skiing and tubing around noon till 4 pm and fishing again till dark. About 16 hrs of jamming, never had to recharge. Excellent product in every fashion. Thanks Crutchfield!!! Mine was a Sweepstakes Win BTW. A Fine Virginia Company and a Very pleased Virginia family! Humbly yours, Amy H.
Pros: Anything you can think of! Seriously.
Cons: Absolutely nothing.
Great wireless speaker. Sound is amazing. Only thing I was missing the charge cord. Had to use my own
Pros: Great sound.
Cons: Missing partCrutchfield response on 7/26/2016 We're sorry the USB cable was missing - it is typically hidden in the base of the Megaboom's storage case. Kelli (from our Customer Support team) read Kate's review and immediately contacted her. We've sent out a replacement cable.
its so good you want to it'll be an great gift
Pros: really loud
Cons: dont know
I bought 2 speakers and was please with the loudness after linking them up. It does take some time to link them up because you have to download and app but fairly easy. I did run into trouble on the 2nd time using the speakers trying to link them, but once linking all was good again.
Loud, clear, waterproof. Relatively portable (although not exactly light). Comes in nice colors. What more could you ask for?
Pros: Loud, clear, waterproof.
Cons: None observed so far.
I've only had this for one week. I'll say that I like the packaging/carrying. case it comes in. Though I believe the carrying case is a little bulky, and could have been made smaller so as to not take up so much room in a bag of packing for a weekend trip, camping, or whatever. -I love the battery time. I didn't use it for the 20 hours continuously as it claims to have, but def used it for several hours without needing a recharge. -I really like the loop which it has on the one end where you can set it up on a camera tri-pod. I used the loop to hang it so it doesn't take up counter space or could get knocked over easily. -As far as sound, I have an untrained ear, but for the money, I thought it ought to be able to pack a little more umphf! All I have a is Bose Sounddock (original version) to compare it too, and the Bose is way better. But my Bose is not portable or waterproof. All in all, I purchased it with a gift card I received, so I'll most likely end up keeping it.
Pros: Cool features- especially loop so you can hang, or set up on tripod so it's out of the way. Other reason I bought is because we do a lot of boating, so the fact that it's waterproof was the big draw for me (though I did not test this feature). Otherwise, I would not have opted for a cheaper option.
Cons: Sound quality isn't as great as I hoped for at this price for the unit.
It has great sound and is so portable. I highly recommend this item.
Excellent speaker; the blue tooth mates up with my Chromebook with no problem. I plan top purchase another...
Pros: portable, easy to set-up; good battery life, great sound....
Cons: none i can think of at the moment..
This speaker is absolutely AMAZING! I can't believe the clarity that comes out of it. When connected to Bluetooth through my iPhone, I can also control the volume and the equalizer. I'm definitely recommending this to my family & friends....but I'm sure the speaker will speak for itself "pun intended" when they come by for our next pool party!
Pros: Sound clarity Size Battery life Traveling case
Backyard, grill, pandora,,, Megaboom!! Awesome sound!! Buying another to go with the other!!
Cons: Base,(for the neighbourhood)
The UE MEGABOOM have a great sound, very long battery life and a cool look. it connected to my IPhone immediately. This is a bigger unit but still very portable and the supirior sound worth the extra size. the only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is no phone charger. i would have loved to have in it a phone charger because i run out of battery on my phone streaming music while the UE battery is still full.
Pros: sound, battery
Cons: No phone charger
A friend had bought 3 UE Mega Boom Box for us before going on vacation. Went to the USVI St. Thomas with friends. We had such a wonderful time. I was bringing my box at Megan's beach and anywhere we went around the island. So cool to listen to music inside of the jeep. So grateful and happy to receive a present which I had only thought to buy. Wishes granted. Thanks.
Took it in the Caribbean ocean with me, the salt water did not phase it, great crisp clear sound and it cranks it out
Pros: Does what you bought it for
Cons: Can't think of one
Great speaker, loud and sounds good. Just buy it!
Nice but price is too high. Sound is very good for inside use.
Pros: Portability. Sound.
Overall good Bluetooth speaker. I have both the boom 2 and this speaker. If you are on the fence about one or the other, get the megaboom. The extra bass is very noticeable.
Pros: Good battery life Great sound quality
Cons: Size. It's a little big for a portable speaker
Not as loud as I expected. Bass is thinner than I expected. Just to compare, a Sonos 1 is just a little bigger, but has sound qualities 300% better. That being said, I would buy the product again for its durability, battery life, ability to always know how much battery percent you have left and most importantly the awesome waterproof abilities.
Pros: Battery life Waterproof
Cons: Cost Not stunning in terms of volume
Durable. Excellent sound.
Pros: 5 stars
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my girlfiend and it arrived promptly but had an internal defect. The sound was muffled and it made a poping sound everytime it went to the next song. I decided since it was a manufacture defect I should send it back to the manufacture. That was my mistake. I went to their website they had an email link so I sent them an email. About a week later I finally got a response. They asked my to try a few things like turning it off and on again and others it still wasn't working right so I replied back. Another week goes by they ask for copy of my receipt so I sent that off. No response so I send another email asking what's going on. I get an email back saying I have been forwarded to their highest level of customer care and I will be getting a ra# in 24-48hrs if approved a week later after several more mails I get an email that I'm aproved and ra# will come in 24-48hrs. I sent my 1st email on December 26th I finally got the defective speaker replaced February 3rd. I got several emails asking about my satisfaction and even a survey not once did anyone even respond and say they were sorry about their incompetence. Over a month to do something that should take a hour at the most. If you buy this item you will probably have better luck dealing with Crutchfield since Logitech the company that makes ultimate ear doesn't care about you or their product. If I had it to do over again I would've bought the jbl oh well
Pros: If the speaker works well out of the box you're fine. Don't expect any help from Logitech on waranty repairs.
Cons: Logitech's customer service department is totally incompetent and they couldn't careless about their products or customers.
Have 2 of these and they are very impressive.! Sound is full and crisp.
Pros: Battery runtime. Sound quality .
Cons: None yet..
Love It no complaints Great outdoors by pool sound is awesome.
I love it. Love how much louder it is.
Pros: I love all the upgrades
Cons: Wish it had a better case
I recently upgraded from the original UE Boom speakers and these Megaboom speakers do not disappoint. The sound quality, range, portability, and battery life are all top notch. Bottom line, if you are looking for the best bluetooth speakers on the market, look no further than the UE Megabooms.
Pros: Double Up Feature Sound Quality Bluetooth Range Battery Life
Cons: Once in a great while when the speakers are doubled up, the audio will occasionally drop off, which was also a minor issue with the original UE Booms
i bought this speaker for my boyfriend so that he could have a portable speaker, but one that is loud enough for a large PA backyard. he has tested out it's loudness (without me present) and said that it was really loud. i have heard it at 50% and it was quite loud; we needed to lower it because my cats did not seem to like the sound. its just small enough to take around too. he is buying a case to be able to bring it while biking. the app is great and the speaker can be turned on and off with the app.
All around great sound, Bluetooth reach and battery life are what were advertised. I'm all set for the beach!!
Pros: Great sound, use to accept calls, control by using the app
Cons: Wish it was buoyant
purchased this to replace my JBL Charge which has seen better days. Had to send first one back battery would not charge (it happens). Replacement has worked fine very great sound as a drive a truck all day with no radio. Battery life is great listen to it 8 to 10 hours a day no issue . Only have 2 minor issues wish there was a battery indicator on speaker itself and case to keep it in when carrying about. But these are minor issues and do not distract from the overall product of great sound
Pros: Sound,The App waterproof
Cons: No carrying case, no battery indicator on speaker
Great sound and an even better battery life !
I just purchased two of these as gifts for our two sons. I have owned my Megaboom for about six months and have for the most part eliminated my stereo. Very portable.
Pros: Great sound in a small package. Easy to use. Well made.
Cons: I little pricey but Crutchfield was the best price I found anywhere. Found no other cons.
Has awesome sound
Pros: I take it wherever I go
Cons: Haven't found any yet
Very pleased with this product.
Pros: Sounds great! Easy to use with app.
Cons: $100 too expensive
Wwaterproof to 3ft and sounds great. What I didn't like. Not loud enough for my needs. Cylindrical no place to sit without rolling. Otherwise a great choice for wet environments.
We bought it because it is water proof and so we could have it on the boat without running the boat batteries down along with being able to throw it in the beach bag when sitting on the island when the water cools down. Great match to the iPAD mini music source - exceeds our expectations.
Pros: Waterproof, Sound, Bluetooth and easy to pair up
Cons: None at this point
very good for the cost
A great replacement to the Beatspills XL that got recalled. Would have definitely bought this one first if we knew about it. Love the design, loudness, and the yellow power cord!
Product is a great value. I recommend to anyone who enjoys music and good sound quality.
The UE Megaboom is impressive in everyway. If you are looking for a wireless speaker look no further.
Pros: Battery life, Quality, Loudness, Sound Quality
Cons: pricey, but you do get what you pay for in this product.
Great sound out by the pool, don't have to worry about it getting wet. Battery was half charged when received took about 2 hours to be fully charged and lasted for 3 days by the pool over the holiday weekend.
Pros: Waterproof, volume level outside
Cons: Size, but the sound is worth it.
This product does everything that is advertised on it and exceeded my expectations. Well worth the money, quality, easy to use, great sound! Don't think you could find anything compareable. Totally satisfied !
Nice speaker, Very Loud and highly Portable
Pros: Good Battery Portable Loud
Cons: Only con is the ease of switching between multiple bluetooth connections - you have to reset the speaker by holding power + down volume.The speaker can only hold a set number of pairings / switches between pairings.
I bought this as a replacement for a FUGOO Tough, swiped by my firstborn as he went to college. It's loud, light and well designed. I like the small form and equalizer app. The battery is enough for a full day at the beach.
Pros: Firmware updates by Bluetooth, Great sound, Loud, Small,
Cons: Dull voice for battery status.
I like that it is smaller in most cases compared to many Bluetooth speaker products that are out in the market today. Allowing the customers selective colors to choose from is a good option For the size and weight of such speaker, the battery seems to last a pretty long time @ a fairly high volume I'm also intrigued that two speakers can be connected to one device to act as the left and right speaker.
Pros: Light Weight for the Quality of Sound/Product The shell or body, is pretty durable -One of the specification I find nice is that it's waterproof. -BIG button display for +/- volume -Quality sound & bass for the size of the product!
Cons: -Unable to seek/rewind from the speaker to the device it's connected to while in Bluetooth. -I believe or suggest that there be a sturdy possibly retractable band to carry the speaker around without having to be stored in the shell casing to move about. -Whatever selective colors that are available for one size speaker should be available for all sizes (UE Mini Boom, Boom, & MEGABOOM) -I find that the Bluetooth signal to source device does not reach 100ft or even really close from my experien
Im very happy with this product!!! It is built very very well, and appears to be very sturdy. The volume is solid and it does a pretty good job at high levels. The weight isnt too bad, and the size is big enough for sound, but small enough to travel.
Pros: Good build, Loud, Good sound, Portable, Slick.
Cons: Only con is the ease of switching between multiple bluetooth connections - you have to reset the speaker by holding power + down volume.The speaker can only hold a set number of pairings / switches between pairings.
Great product! Bring it everywhere I go and use it often. Durable, good sound quality, and easy to carry with you.
Awesome sound from such a small speaker !!!! Would recommend to anyone looking !!!
I have two of these, and I really like them, but.they operate with Bluetooth, and when a human body gets between the iPhone/iPad and Megaboom, the connection breaks momentarily. So, keep the iPhone and speakers out of the path of fellow humans. Perhaps keep them high up if you're going to have a lot of people around. If it is just you in a room, no problem. Plus, you cannot carry the iPhone in your pocket and walk around, because when you turn so that your body is between your phone and the speaker, guess what! The connection breaks momentarily. It is a sucky issue with an otherwise superb product (great range, great sound-I use them outdoors). I suspect this is also an issue with other Bluetooth speakers.
I received this speaker a few days ago and have been impressed with the battery life and volume. I listen to a wide variety of music and was a bit underwhelmed with the audio quality of this speaker. At lower volumes it definitely suffers the least desirable audio quality. Sounding just "ok" and not very clear or crisp. This improves when you crank the volume up, but it is then not at an ideal volume for everyday listening. I feel this would be perfect for a BBQ or party due to the volume. I am not a bass head, but this does ok in that department. The bass seems to sound best when near a wall or corner. What I was in search of was a speaker that could reproduce clear vocals, acoustics, etc. Currently this does not meet my expectations in that department. If the acoustics were better the price is justifiable, but at this price not worth it. My old Kicker amphitheater sounds way better by a mile at the lower to normal listening volumes, in all departments of audio quality. But then again the Kicker does not have the pick up and go portability. The Jury is still out on whether I will keep this product. Not sure all the other pros can outweigh the audio quality.
Pros: Battery life, Portability, Build quality, and definetly volume. It can get loud.
Cons: Audio quality lacking, mainly in reproducing vocals and acoustics, even after using the available app to adjust the higher end audio frequencies. Price is definitely not justifiable.
I bought this to take on my boat-now I can listen to music while cruising around and like the fact that it can get wet as well. My only complaint is the case it comes with is terrible-it never closes right or stays closed. If you buy this just be careful carrying it and dont trust the handle on the case or the latch on the case. The actual speaker works great with my iphone-nice crisp loud sound. It wont match your high end stereo but for most it will be great especially , if like me your boat , did not come with a sound system.
Pros: Good sound, Waterproof
Cons: terrible case
I have only had one other bluetooth speaker--Bose--and this UE Megaboom blew the Bose away, mostly in overall sound quality especially the bass response. Coolness factor an additional big plus. Still getting used to the slightly larger size/weight but the tradeoff in awesome sound quality well worth it.
Pros: Impressive sound, quite cool, set-up ultra easy and intuitive.
Cons: A tad hefty in size and weight.
I bought a pair of these to use on a large scale model train that pulls passengers. I previously used a set of UE Booms so I was familiar with the attributes of the product. Pairing two speakers is what sold me on them in the first place.
Pros: The extended range of these gives more flexibility with placement and the additional battery life is a plus.
Cons: I only wish they were louder as I use them in an outdoor situation.
Best bluetooth speaker I've ever owned. Great sound! !
This is a great speaker, sounds great, looks great and easy to pair with your Ipad or phone. How do they get this much sound from such a small speaker, great base, mid range and highs. Wish I had another so I could take advantage of the ability to use two for stereo. Also like the UE Megaboom app.
Pros: Great sound, great looks, easy to pair, love ng battery life.
My wife had a UE Boom. She loves it. When Mega Boom came out I had to buy one. It was so awesome that we bought a second one and use the app for stereo.
Pros: Great Sound, Good app, long battery life, great BT range, Waterproof
Works as promised. Sound quality is excellent for the size; people are invariably impressed when I use it. Loud enough to fill the whole backyard with a single speaker. Easy to connect and use. Crutchfield was excellent too - filled order fast and shipment arrived sooner than I expected.
Pros: Sound quality, size, portability
Cons: If you are a true audiophile, you might have a problem?
Great speaker. Very easy to set up. Very well made product
Wanted this speaker for a while and did not disappoint, I would highly recommend this speaker and this website, I originally ordered this off of the UE website and after two weeks it still had not even shipped!! What good is a speaker if I can't use it? Crutchfield came in clutch and it was at my house two days after I ordered it. Will definitely order all audio equipment from here from now and and so will all of my friends.
Pros: Love the waterproof, the ring on the bottom, the battery life and the ease of use, no problems connecting to any devices, great Bluetooth range, just an overall awesome speaker for indoors and out.
Cons: Not much for cons but I'd have to say the price is a bit much and the charging takes a little longer than I'd like but with such a long battery life I can't complain, only thing I would add to this speaker is a charge out feature.
Battery life and quality are amazing. Good sound even in open areas. Larger than some portable speakers but the quality and waterproof nature easily outweigh this minor detriment. Have used it camping, at beach, on deck or patio and have been very impressed
This is a great speaker! We use it in our pool area, on golf cart and on the boat. It is great to have a really good bluetooth speaker that can be so portable.
Pros: Size, sound and portability
Great deep quality sound in open area, with long battery life. Greater WiFi range would make it even better due to sometimes limited WiFi when at vacation rentals.
Pros: Great sound quality with good battery life.
Cons: Needs extended WiFi for streaming.
Fills the patio with great sound. I like the almost 360 degree sound. Lasts all day (I don't max out the volume).
Pros: Easy controls, useful app. Waterproof, great sound
Outstanding sound. We bought this to play on the beach and we were not disappointed.
Pros: Sound quality. Loudness needed for outdoors
This is easily the best all around speaker out there. Sure it's expensive , but it sounds amazing, gets 20 hours on one charge and can be used where ever the music takes you. Great product and Crutchfield has great customer service. If you're looking for the ultimate travel party speaker, look no further. You won't be disappointed!
The UE Megaboom has had no problems that hinder it in my opinion. The volume - no matter how loud - is still amazing quality ( perfect for a pool party or of such ). 10 out of 10. 100 out of 100. Best speaker ever!
Pros: Sound, Volume, Shape, Look, Controls
Cons: Portability, Charger
Purchased this after listening to UE Booms that I bought my daughters for Christmas. It is larger and louder than the Boom, but I was disappointed in the sound. If you Crank it up, it gets muddy and slightly distorted at higher volumes. It is, however, well built and has nice features. Very portable and battery life is excellent. It is waterproof, so that is a big plus. I think overall, it is a decent portable player, but overpriced for the sound quality. You would be better off buying 2 UE Booms and pairing them for a little more money. I purchased the two for my daughter's.
Pros: Waterproof, well built, portable, battery life
Cons: Sound quality
I have had portable speakers in the past and always been disappointed usually with quality of sound and a few with battery life. I wanted to buy a new BT speaker and researched thoroughly and this unit kept coming up as my match. I was hesitant because of the price. I was concerned I would be disappointed like the other BT speakers I have owned. I planned to return this unit because of price if I was unhappy at all. This is the best BT speaker I have owned. The sound quality is excellent. I am very very happy with the battery life. Note: I had issue with charging until I learned to turn on Bluetooth Smart to charge. I use this unit more than I have ever used any of the other BT speakers e.g. attach to hiking backpack (wish a little lighter), vacation by pool, in bathroom in mornings, office, at GFs. This speaker does everywhere with me. I thought about buying a second unit for the "double up" stereo sound, but cannot imagine carrying two of these units with me. And the sound is excellent with just the single unit. I would higly recommend this purchase. It is well worth the money.
Pros: Excellent sound quality and battery life
Cons: It is a little large and heavy but not terrible
My family and I love this speaker great out at the pool nice sound without the worry of leaving out in the rain and getting wet from water.
Pros: Waterproof and sound quality loud enough for a small party along with link ability of another speaker for stero sound. Tremendous battery life, links to several devices this is a must buy
Cons: Have problems with sound linking to my iPad, not sure what the issue is speaker or ipad
We bought two of the Megaboom speakers to "Double Up" together. One alone sounds great and two sounds even better! The hook at the top to hang them is a nice feature. The directions for doubling them together are not that good and it took me three days to finally get it to work.
Pros: Long battery life, slim design, great sound, syncing of two speakers together, hook for hanging
Cons: Double Up instructions aren't that detailed and took a while to figure out.
I love this speaker......It sounds great and is easy to carry.......Battery is great......I am not disappointed at all.....It rocks, buy it!
Pros: Sound, Battery, Easy Portability
Cons: None yet
Incredible Bluetooth speaker, much louder than my previous Bluetooth speaker and much better sound quality, water resistance is a huge plus for tailgates and parties, price is a little steep though
Pros: Sound quality, loudness, water resistance, case included
Brought this camping, it worked extremely well and I didn't have to worry about it getting a little wet. Bungeed it to a kayak as well
I listened to many in an audio store. The sound of the mega boom was phenomenal!
Pros: Nice range,full sound no distortion when turned up like others I listened to nice highs and great base.
Cons: Thought it was pricey but very well worth every dollar comparably
Overall best portable speaker I've ever owned
I spent months watching YouTube videos and checking specs. I always research items like this to death before making a decision. Go out and do the research but what I have found is that I narrowed the devices down to two. The UE Megaboom and the Bose Mini. The Mini had better sound quality and for indoor use only it would be great but the fact that I will use this by the pool influenced my final decision to go with the mega boom for its water proof rating. One YouTube reviewer placed this is a bucket of water and it functioned perfectly after. I put this on a video camera stand next to my above ground pool so I can reach the volume controls from inside the pool. The loudness is excellent, the bass sounds are not as good as the mini but for outdoor use it is great.
Pros: Durability, water proof, battery life
Cons: Bass can be adjusted with phone app but not as good as it could be.
Had the Mega Boom for a week and so far so good. I use it near my pool and outside bar, loud enough to enjoy not so loud it would tick off the neighbors. I don't use the app after reading all the negative reviews, so I just turn it up or down using the big buttons or the volume on my ipad.
Pros: Sounds great, water proof, no sticking wires
Cons: haven't found any yet.
Great sound, style, and easy setup.
Love how loud and durable this product is. Not too portable however because it is a bit heavy and big. The waterproof feature is great as well.
Pros: Loudness, durability and water resistance
Great sound for a small compact unit
Pros: Small easy to carry
Cons: None really
Excellent, great product to take to the beach, cool design and very good sound. You can improve a little bit the range, but nothing to worry. This speakers are loud and for the price is amazing.
Cons: It will be the perfect speaker if they sounded a little bit louder with fidelity, but they have pretty good sound.
The Logitech UE Megaboom Bluetooth speaker is probably the best sounding portable speaker I have ever heard. Superb base, (as well as mids and highs) Great battery life, very well made. About the only bad things I can say are the sttep price tag (although well worth it once you have heard it!) and my 15 year old keeps stealing it because it sounds so much better for anything else he has ever heard. Thinking about adding a second one ASAP!
Pros: Sound, Sound, sound, battery life, ease of use.
Cons: Cost (more than I really wanted to spend, but well worth every dollar!)
I can't add much more to the other reviews. The device has great sound, and is sufficiently loud and easy to use. My mom who knew nothing about Bluetooth easily paired the device to her phone.
Pros: Sound quality, easy to use
Cons: -1 for the green charger . . . I guess you wont loose the ugly green thing.
Compared to the JAWBONE Big Jambox, this speaker has a much cleaner sound at high volumes!
Pros: Very durable. Relatively clean sound for a water resistant speaker. It is quite a bit louder on full volume than I expected and the equalizer helps you to customize the sound even more when the speaker is being used with extreme bass levels.
Cons: Pricey. Otherwise, the Logitech App that updated the firmware is in transition. The firmware has a bug and you'll need to either call Logitech or look at their forums to find out how to get around the issue. The issue deals with charging the speaker the first time. Once you get past that initial problem things work great!
I have the UE Boom from Crutchfield...liked it.......MEGABOOM blows it away! More than loud enough. I've bought 4 small speakers before this one trying to get the right one.....this is my favorite of all
Pros: Great bass and sound, easy to carry, like and bought the red. Crutchfield delivered when they said they would.
Cons: only one.....I could not figure out how to sync the UE Boom with Megaboom. OH WELL....not a biggie.....I would probably never do that anyway because plenty of sound out of the Megaboom aloneCrutchfield response on 5/27/2015 Thanks for your review. While you can pair up two MEGABOOM speakers or two BOOM speakers, there's no way to pair up a BOOM with a MEGABOOM.
This speaker is definitely worth the price tag. Sound quality is excellent. Portability is made even easier with the great carry case thats included. Thank you for a great product!
After reading the reviews I had pretty high expectations, but I must confess the UE Megaboom exceeded them all. It looks, feels and most importantly sounds really good. The instructions are somewhat minimal, but you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure everything out. It connects easily to all of my Bluetooth devices and the design makes it easy to set up and use practically anywhere.
Pros: Design, construction and Sound!
Cons: The USB power cable to recharge it could be a bit longer, and it and the plug are a hideous color. It's not a big deal, but just seems odd since everything else about the UE Megaboom seems so well thought out and tastefully designed.
I enjoy the portability and sound quality as well as the ease of use. Range from device could be better.
Pros: Build quality sound quality ease of use battery life
Cons: Bluetooth range loudness not much better if any from its smaller brother
Kids bought this Megaboom for Dad's birthday since he lost his Boom speaker. Clear, much louder. Awesome. Best Bluetooth speaker.
If you're looking for a Bluetooth speaker this is perfect. I use it all around the house, at the beach, in the garage, at work; it's perfect for everything. It's a bit pricy but I feel it's worth every dollar so far. No more playing music from my phone speaker. Best speaker/entertainment buy I've made in awhile.
Pros: Loud, super portable, looks awesome, great battery life and range
Cons: Expensive, no custom colors
I had been looking for a speaker I could take to the beach and for the boat. Most speakers that are water resistant suffer from poor sound quality. I saw this speaker and the reviews from multiple sources, and decided to try it. I have not been disappointed. Its tough, but the sound is crisp and clear, and for its size, the base is very impressive, even outside in the open air. The battery life is as advertised around 15 hours at a fairly high volume. Great Speaker, and worth the price.
Pros: Built for folks who want music outdoors without having to worry what mother nature will throw at you.
The Megaboom is the perfect speaker for a pool, the shower, shop or small backyard as long as your expectations are not for Klipsch highs or Velodyne lows. This is NOT an audiophile grade speaker. It is a hand held, very water resistant little sound machine that you won't have to baby. It is plenty loud if you live outdoors in a subdivision. It will not go to a distortion level when maxed out but does go too loud if you have neighbors. Voice and guitar type music sounds slightly muffled when compared to a good set of speakers but the sound is very good when outside and you compare it to what a similar size radio from the past would sound like. I highly recommend it for anyone as long as you aren't going to compare it to you home theater system. If home theater sound quality is what you are looking for, this ain't it.
Pros: Size. All weather condition capability. Longevity of the rechargeable battery. Durability.
Cons: Sound quality.
Big Sound? As an owner of both Boom and MEGABOOM I am completely happy with the big brother! Both have great sound for what they are.
Pros: Big 360 sound, great battery life and still very portable.
Cons: Expensive...But you get what you pay for!
Awesome speaker - great sound & toughness!
Pros: Water proof - no flimsy bits to break off - just the right controls on the speaker itself - and fabulous iPhone app for remote control.
Cons: Wish it had more mounting options than for tripod - e.g. would like a nice way to mount to a 1" diameter rail, which is commonly found on boats.
excellent bluetooth wireless speaker, great sound and long battery life
Pros: portable, long battery life, quality sound
Cons: some songs with heavy bass need adjustment at the highest volume setting
Great looks with amazing sound! And it really is waterproof! Great for the lake or pool parties!
This is primarily used by my teenage son who loves it. The wife even started to use it.
Pros: Range, waterproof, sound, battery life
Cons: None yet
I like that you can sink two speakers but at the price I paid, it's way to expensive
Pros: Water proof and built well
The mega boom is a very well constructed Bluetooth speaker. It connects easily and sounds very good for a speaker its size.
Pros: Build quality
Cons: None come to mind.
I use this in my UTV while I'm riding the trails.
Pros: The UE MEGABOOM is built extremely rugged. Water proof. Good shape. Great sound quality. Portable. Can be paired with a second UE MEGABOOM. It's so easy to use the phone app to control every function of the MEGABOOM and makes firmware updates simply a breeze.
Cons: Not quite loud enough to be heard over running UTV engine, but paired with a second MEGABOOM, I'm sure there won't be any problems.
The sound is great and it is definitely waterproof. I left it out in a thunderstorm the day I got it and it works just fine.
Great sound. Intelligent design. Stylish packaging. Great controls and App. Long range for Bluetooth. Terrific product.
Just an amazing speaker, small and light, yet very powerful!
Pros: it's great to be able to access from your phone app
Cons: It's a Bluetooth speaker so you won't get the richest sounds possible
A definite step up from the original Boom .
Pros: Water resistant, replaceable battery, Sound quality , linking to other UE booms.
Cons: A little heavy and bulkier than the original UE Boom.
Great speaker! Very nice sound. The more you listen to it, the more you can appreciate the sound quality.
Pros: Portable. Great range and battery life.
Cons: None that I can find.
Needed a quality bluetooth speaker and after hearing the boom I bought the megaboom without even listening to it. Great 360 degree sound and portability. Very pleased with the megaboom.
Pros: Take with you sound. Build quality. Cool!
I did a ridiculous amount of internet research on bluetooth speakers before deciding on this one. My wife has a Bose Soundlink Mini and it has a great sound. No bluetooth speaker can compare to a great set of true stereo speakers so I dismissed all the "audiophiles" who felt it necessary to point that out. I also dismissed any complaints about size, weight or dimensions, because that's certainly easy to find out online and shouldn't be a "post-purchase" complaint. I've looked at, compared, and HEARD JBL, Bose, Infinity, HK, Denon, Beats, and several lesser brands. I chose this speaker because of the ruggedness, battery life (very impressive - Mine had over 20 hours), waterproof construction and more. Sound quality is such an individualized opinion, but I think this speaker holds its own well. Even from genre to genre it sometimes sounds better or worse than the Bose mini, but never dramatically one way or another, except at higher volumes, and I believe it handles that better. Its less directional than the bose and with the volume edge, outdoor friendly construction, and far superior battery life I think it justifies the hefty price. Very pleased.
Pros: Battery life. Rugged construction. Clean sound
Cons: Slightly less rich base at low volumes.
I bought two of these to replace my original UE Booms, and boy are they so much better in every way. They are definitely fatter than the originals, but not much heavier. The bass is more pronounced, but there is room to improve with the lower frequencies.
Pros: Loudness, battery life, and longer wireless range.
Cons: Bigger size can be a little bulky, and the lower end frequencies can be distorted if turned up too high.
I owned the JBL Charge 2 and really liked it but it left me wanting something more in terms of sound presence and loudness. I decided a more bulletproof build than the charge 2 provided was also important, and I was willing to spend more to get it. I took a leap on the megaboom because of everything I read. It arrived and I was excited to see if it lived up to its billing. The form factor, understated yet slick look, and solid build quality impressed me right out of the cylindrical box. At first listen, the megaboom sounded balanced and clear but something was missing. The MB provides a tight and generally bright, but basic sound. Although clear with a broader bass tone than smaller units like the charge 2, it lacked the airiness and clear frequency reaponse of other front projection devices I listened to. The more I listened however, the more I appreciated its 360 degree sound delivery. We have an open floor plan in our home with high ceilings. When this unit is placed centrally within the space, it sounds consistent at all angles as you move about. This design really lends itself well to a party atmosphere. The more I listened casually, the more the megaboom sound and presence appealed to me. Because of its build quality, portability, bluetooth range, and 360 sound experience, its value is in its utilitarian and flexible form. Add pretty good but not "amazing" sound, and you have a solid device. Is it worth 3 bills? Maybe. I think the megaboom will continue to grow on me.
Pros: Build quality. Seems rugged and capable as a portable device. Great battery life and bluetooth range. 360 coverage makes delivers broad and generally good sound in social settings. Improved bass response and loudness over its predecessor. Ability to pair multiple mega booms for stereo seperation. Portability. Waterproof and tough enclosure makes it resilient under all conditions, which means it will last. Firmware upgradeable.
Cons: No aptx support (although it could in a future firmware upgrade?) Requires a second megaboom investment to get a stereo return. A flat experience for audiophiles. Bass quality drops off at high volume. A little pricey. Premium construction with less than premium sound.

I've the version before the 2 along with Mega, there is quite a difference. Holds more bass and volume [ GLENWOOD Sep 05, 2017 ]
I have the original UE Boom (not the 2 version) and the MegaBoom. MegaBoom has more bass, and a fuller sound, but I don't know that it is significantly louder (if volume is what you refer to as amount of sound). I prefer listening to the MegaBoom, but actually use the original Boom more since I carry it with me when I travel (doesn't take up much room in suitcase) [ David Sep 05, 2017 ]
It stops blinking green on the top. [ AMY Aug 31, 2017 ]
I don't see why not. It's water proof/resistant. I've used it outside in Chicago during the summer when it's 100% humidity. Haha hope this helps. [ Mario Feb 08, 2017 ]
Yes. Up to 10 of these speakers can be connected. [ Allen Aug 28, 2016 ]
Yes, but the speaker seems to crackle and go in and out at times. You definitely lose some distance when they are both connected. The crazy thing about it is there are times when it connects together real easy and sounds great and others it is horrible. I use mine with an iPhone 6. [ DARRIN Aug 24, 2016 ]
Here is some helpful information from the product page. If you click the blue box that says keep reading you will find this info: With the UE MEGABOOM app for iOS® and AndroidT, you can stream simultaneously to two UE MEGABOOMs and nearly double the volume. Or use the app to make them a stereo pair for a really fun listening experience. The app also lets you adjust EQ or set an alarm. Hope that helps. [ Kenny Aug 24, 2016 ] Staff
I always point the +- at the top towards the audience, but I have not experimented with other orientations. It is multidirectional and fills a large room nicely. An excellent speaker. [ William Jul 16, 2016 ]
IOM anyway you position it it will work just fine [ Mario Jul 15, 2016 ]
Point it at the audience. It has great sound but it will sound differently in different rooms due to acoustics. I've had it up as a tall speaker and on its side. Either way is fine. Experiment with it until you like the sound the most. [ Angela Jul 15, 2016 ]
Doesn't make to big of a difference. I like the - + on The top and the volume away from your audience [ James Jul 15, 2016 ]
Yes, either wirelessly via Bluetooth or through wired connection: "Auxiliary Input: In addition to built-in Bluetooth, the UE MegaBoom is fitted with a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of almost any audio device with a headphone jack or analog audio output" [ Randy Dec 22, 2016 ]
I have a friend who uses it with iPod and iPhone. [ William Aug 24, 2016 ]
It can be used with any bluetooth device. My teacher has one and uses it with an iPhone and iPad. [ William Jul 16, 2016 ]
If the iPod is wifi compatible it should haven't tried it though [ Victoria Apr 22, 2016 ]
As long as your iPod has Bluetooth [ joseph Apr 22, 2016 ]
it comes with a standard usb cord with a wall plug. So I would say yes as long as you buy a separate cigarette plug. [ Mario Apr 20, 2016 ]
It comes with a USB chord and wall adapter. You could charge it from a lighter, but you would need to buy that separately. [ DARRIN Apr 20, 2016 ]
It comes with a cord that connects via USB to a wall socket charger like an iPhone/iPad. You would have to purchase a cigarette charger to connect via USB to the cord. [ Duane Wren Apr 20, 2016 ]
It has a standard USB charger and cord included. If you use a USB adapter in the cigarette lighter, it will charge. This is an excellent speaker. [ William Apr 20, 2016 ]
I don't think so it has a cord and adapter you have to use. [ James Apr 20, 2016 ]
No smart tv uses wifi this speaker uses Bluetooth [ James Mar 01, 2016 ]
I really don't think it was designed to float or be submerged in water. [ William Sep 15, 2015 ]
Not sure I would immerse this speaker in water to try it. I will tell you it fell out of my golf cart twice last week going 20 mph and it still works great. [ DARRIN Sep 15, 2015 ]
No it won't float [ James Sep 15, 2015 ]
36w RMS [ James Aug 11, 2015 ]
No, it can't charge devices. [ Taylor May 22, 2015 ]
It will not charge your phone. [ DARRIN May 22, 2015 ]
No the adapter is for charging it wont charge a phone with the mega boom battery [ James May 21, 2015 ]
Yes [ ELAINE May 21, 2015 ]
Unfortunately, no. The UE Megaboom uses a micro USB port for charging, and charging is very quick, but you cannot charge other devices from the UE Megaboom battery. Well, you could, but you'd have to drill some holes and get creative. Oh, and you'd have to void your warranty. ;) [ Dana May 21, 2015 ]
Yes, that is something that can be turned on and off. [ William Aug 24, 2016 ]
Yes, it does. The speakerphone can be turned on or off. [ William Jul 16, 2016 ]
Yes, once your phone is connected via bluetooth, you can use it as a speakerphone. [ William Sep 15, 2015 ]
the UE MEGABOOM does have a speaker phone [ Michael Feb 20, 2015 ]
The UE MegaBoom features an integrated dual microphone so you can use the UE MegaBoom as a wireless speakerphone for your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone. The UE MegaBoom will automatically pause the music to let you take your phone call. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to view video calls, manually enter phone number, and control advanced phone functions. [ Jeff Feb 10, 2015 ] Staff
The plastic case it comes in for shipping is a pretty good carrying case. It probably could use a better carrying case. I've had good luck carrying it for weekend trips in the plastic case it is shipped in [ Jacob Jun 12, 2017 ]
No, a carry case is not included with the UE MEGABOOM.. [ James Jun 11, 2017 ]
Yes, there is a carry case with a handle on one end. However, I only keep the Megaboom in the case for protection. I would not advise 'carrying' the case, as its closure is flimsy and doesn't close properly. I bring the speaker back and forth to our pool, so I put it all in a small gym bag. [ DEMETER S Jun 11, 2017 ]
No, you buy separately. [ STUART K Jun 11, 2017 ]
it comes in a circular box that can be used as a carrying case. [ Roy Jun 11, 2017 ]
I don't have an Echo Dot so I can't answer to that but I can say it has not had any problems connecting to different Bluetooth devices. It is a great speaker. [ LINDA T May 11, 2017 ]
Thanks for your question. 3-5/16" diameter x 8-15/16"H and weight: 1.93 lbs.You'll find this information on the product page under "Product Highlights". Hope that helps. [ Kenny Sep 24, 2016 ] Staff
Yes, and it works great. you just need to update the older boom's firmware and download the megaboom app from the app store. [ Alessandro Jun 22, 2015 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget. [ Krissy Oct 17, 2017 ] Staff
I didn't have to replace it. However, it seems it is no possible because it is sealed for waterproofing. [ Jose E Reyes Mar 20, 2017 ]
Don't think so [ Scott Mar 20, 2017 ]
