Our take on the iHome iBT4

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.

Entertainment options

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.

Love this Device

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this item for my boyfriend for his birthday and it is great! We use in mostly in the house, but taking it to the beach or park is a snap!!! Small, light and the FM radio is great!



not the best product

Cliffpa from Pittsburgh, PA on 7/24/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Connects to Bluetooth easily, but not much volume. I told the guy on the telephone i wanted a device for outside on the patio, but i didn't want to spend more than $75. He told me he had a great unit for around that price. I bought it. I can see why they don't sell this anymore, it is not that good.

Pros: connect to bluetooth easily.

Cons: volume is not loud enough. Runs out of power in one dinner outside.
