Our take on the iHome iBT4 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Need a simple, go-anywhere boombox to use with your smartphone or tablet? The iHome iBT4 makes a great choice — and its modernist retro styling makes a bold fashion statement, too. Its big mono sound won't get swallowed up in the great outdoors.
Stream wirelessly to the iBT4 from your smartphone, tablet, or other Bluetooth-compatible device. Or go old-school and use the iBT4's FM radio to tune in some tunes, or the big game. There's an auxiliary input so you can enjoy other portable devices through the iBT4.
And if you want bigger sound, use the system's line-out jack to connect to another speaker. Daisy-chain two or more iBT4 speakers together to really kick out the jams.
Ready to go
The iBT4 features a built-in rechargeable battery for portable operation. The system's rugged case is rubberized for outdoor use, with a sturdy pivoting handle.
