Soundmatters Fox Lv2

The Soundmatters foxLv2 is small enough to take with you anywhere

Sure, you can easily slip the compact Soundmatters foxLv2 Bluetooth speaker system into your pocket — but portabilty is only half the story. This sleek, platinum-finish system delivers truly amazing sound from your smartphone or computer.

Bluetooth for wireless music and talk

The system features advanced CSR aptX® circuitry to receive uncompressed Bluetooth signals from compatible devices, such as Apple® computers running Snow Leopard or Lion, or select Sennheiser Bluetooth dongles. You'll enjoy remarkably clean, clear sound from the foxL.

Don't have aptX in your device? No problem. The foxLv2 works with virtually all Bluetooth-enabled devices, including Android™ phones, iPhones®, iPads®, Blackberrys®, and PDAs.

Small system — incredible sound

Four high-performance amplifiers provide up to ten watts of total power to give your music real presence. The two 1" speakers are an ingenious combination of woofer and tweeter, delivering solid mids and clear high tones. There's even an ingenious "BassBattery." The system's lithium-ion battery, encased in rubber, doubles as a bass radiator to pump out the lows.

And Soundmatters includes a small "yoga mat" to place the foxLv2 on, to keep it from vibrating across the table when the bass kicks in. But if that's still not enough, a line-level output lets you connect the system to an external sub.

For more than music

A built-in microphone lets you carry on hands-free conversations through the foxLv2. You can even use it as an impromptu speakerphone for conference calls. And because the microphone is noise-canceling, you'll hear — and be heard — with greater clarity.

Serious sound for wired connections

There's also minijack input, so you can connect the foxLv2 to your laptop or other portable devices through their headphone jacks. Watch videos on your PC or play games with your handheld and enjoy them with bigger, better sound from the foxLV2. Included with the system is a high-performance AudioQuest Evergreen minijack-to-minijack cable. The Evergreen cable keeps signal distortion and electronic interference to a minimum — it's a difference you can hear.

Portable convenience

The foxLv2 is made for on-the-go listening. It features a removable hinged grill that swings out to serve as a stand. Its built-in rechargeable battery gives you up to 8 hours of operation, and can be charged either through its AC adapter or a USB connection to your computer or other device. And with the included international power adapters you can always keep the foxLv2 charged wherever you are.

Just slip the foxLv2 into its travel pouch, and tuck it into your pocket. Or carry it by its included lanyard. Either way, you're ready to share some great sound with your friends at a moment's notice.

Amazing sound and very portable. It's just a wink bigger than the small Snickers bar.... Highly recommended!! Crutchfield customer service is amazing and they ship items as fast as a tele porter.....

Features

Personal Audiophile Loudspeaker: The Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum is pocket-sized, personal music system that upgrades the listening experience from your smartphone, MP3 player, laptop, mobile gaming system, or portable/micro projector. The Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum provides clear highs and smooth bass from a compact, self-powered speaker. The foxLv2 Platinum can be connected to your compatible audio source via a stereo minijack cable or aptX Bluetooth (A2DP). The Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum even features a built-in microphone for hands-free communication from your smartphone. The foxLv2 Platinum operates off of standard AC household current or battery power.

Digital Amplifiers: On-board amplification is supplied by four ultra high-efficiency digital amplifiers delivering a total power up to 8W @ < 0.1% THD (via AC power). The amplifiers are limited to 4W @ < 0.1% THD (via battery power).

Linear Magnetic Drive Twoofers: The Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum employs two dual voice-coil 1" (25mm) Linear Magnetic Drive Twoofers (tweeter/woofer combination) that provide wide response with remarkable clarity. The foxLv2 Platinum is engineered around this pair of proprietary, highly sophisticated acoustic drivers, unique in their ability to reproduce both extreme high (tweeter) and low (woofer) frequencies from a single very small diameter 1" (25mm) dome speaker, dubbed the "Twoofer". The Twoofers incorporate soundmatter's Linear Magnetic Drive topology featuring field-focused, back-to-back, dual Extreme-Energy neodymium magnets and a 1-inch, dual voice coil.

BassBattery/Flatmagic: The foxLv2 Platinum pocket-sized, personal music system's dual digitally powered Twoofers are assisted in their task of reproducing low frequencies by a miniaturized version of the high mass "moving-wall" passive bass radiators found in Soundmatters' award-winning SUBstage home subwoofers. To add the additional bass driver, without compromising stringent weight and space restrictions, Soundmatters engineers developed an innovative solution, known as the "BassBattery". This patented design was created by rubber-encasing the unit's built-in high capacity, lithium-ion battery, enabling it to provide the mass for, and do double duty as, an acoustic suspension bass driver.  Moving the battery from the inside of the speaker to become part of a "moving-wall" radiator, frees up critical internal airspace to drive the bass.

"Skintight" DomeForward Enclosure: The Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum incorporates high-tech glass-filled composite walls to form a "skintight" ultra-rigid totally sealed acoustic enclosure (often confused with metal, but much lighter for portability). Unlike other manufactures that mount their acoustic drivers in manner that actually obstructs the sound, especially if the listener is off-axis from the front of the speaker; the foxLv2 Platinum Twoofer speakers, are mounted "dome forward" from the enclosure, protected by a grille designed to maximize acoustic transparency.  Another reason why unlike typical small speakers, the foxLv2 Platinum sounds open and airy, almost regardless of its location.

aptX Bluetooth Technology: The Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum pocket-sized, personal music system offers Bluetooth music and hands-free capabilities. The Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum employs aptX Bluetooth technology for CD-like wireless audio streaming (when steaming from an aptX equipped Bluetooth device). The foxLv2 Platinum automatically connects to your Bluetooth enabled device for instant wireless streaming from your smartphone or music player. Bluetooth wireless technology offers a 25-30' range.

  • Music Streaming (A2DP): The Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum features Bluetooth wireless A2DP stereo technology for audio streaming from your Bluetooth enabled smartphone, music player, or laptop. The Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum employs aptX Bluetooth technology for CD-like wireless audio streaming (when steaming from an aptX equipped Bluetooth device). The foxLv2 Platinumconnects automatically and is optimized for maximum audio fidelity, including low distortion and minimal noise. This unit does not offer Bluetooth AVRCP (remote control).
  • Hands-Free Communication (HFP): The foxLv2 Platinum features Bluetooth HFP wireless hands-free communication and provides a built-in "business-quality" microphone for speakerphone/conferencing calling. The built-in noise and echo canceling microphone circuitry, coupled with the Twoofers remarkable voice clarity, make the foxLv2 Platinum a superb choice for hands-free and conference call applications. When a call comes in while listening to music streamed via Bluetooth, the foxLv2 Platinum automatically switches so you'll hear and be able to speak to the caller. When the call is finished, your music returns. With a quick press of the unit's front Bluetooth button, you can even remotely reject, answer, or terminate a call.

Note: Not all Bluetooth enabled devices will be compatible, due to the differences in Bluetooth technology.

Apple Device Compatible: The foxLv2 Platinum is compatible with the iPad (1/2), iPhone (3G/3GS/4/4S), and iPod touch (2nd gen/3rd gen/4th gen) via Bluetooth and 3.5mm auxiliary connection.

Auxiliary Input: The Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum is fitted with a 3.5mm stereo audio input for a hardwired connection of your smartphone, MP3 player, or laptop.

Note: An AudioQuest Evergreen audio cable is included for the highest resolution critical listening.

Subwoofer Output: The foxLv2 Platinum features a 3.5mm stereo audio output to connect a powered subwoofer for extra bass.

Fold-Out Stand: The foxLv2 Platinum pocket-sized, personal music system's protective grille doubles as a foldout speaker stand.

Anti-Slip Acoustic Mat: The Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum includes a anti-slip, acoustic mat to help deaden any unwanted resonance.

Power Requirements: The Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum pocket-sized, personal music system can be powered from using the included external AC power supply or the unit's integrated Lithium-ion battery.

  • AC Power: The foxLv2 Platinum operates off of standard household current using the supplied AC power supply. The unit's output wattage doubles when powered via AC (up to 8W) vs. battery (up to 4W). A universal power travel adapter kit is included with 4 types of AC power adapter plugs (for US/Japan, Europe/China, UK/HK, and Australia)
  • Battery Power: The foxLv2 Platinum also features an integrated rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that can last up to 8 hours on a full-charge, depending upon volume levels. The integrated Lithium-ion battery can be recharged via the included AC power supply or via USB, using the included USB charging cable.

Optional Carrying Case: The Soundmatters UK PRO TT10 travel case (602UKPRO10, sold separately) is designed specifically for the Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum portable powered speaker. The travel case has just enough room to accommodate the Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum portable powered speaker, its AC adapter (disassembled), and audio cable.
