Powered Bluetooth® speaker (Cream)
Our take on the Marshall Woburn by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Classic look, killer sound
Make no mistake. The Marshall Woburn is not a small guitar amp. Rather, it's a big powerful Bluetooth speaker with an impressively big sound. The confusion's understandable. The Woburn features Marshall's script logo on a woven speaker grille. The vinyl-covered cabinet has an inset brushed-brass control panel with three smooth-motion knobs and a toggle power switch. But really, the Woburn's for streaming music wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet and playing it loud.
Top-mounted smooth-motion control knobs resemble those on Marshall amps. (Requires AC power.)
Choice of wired connections
The Woburn also gives you a choice of wired connections for even more entertainment options. It has a stereo minijack input for your portable devices, with a coiled stereo minijack cable that looks like a guitar cable. Stereo RCA connectors let you hook up your turntable with built-in stereo preamp, or other audio component. And there's an optical digital input for playingsound from your TV, Blu-ray player, or digital music server.
Quality sound and build
Inside the Woburn's sturdy enclosureare two 3/4” dome tweeters and two 5-1/4” woofers. Each speaker is powered by its own Class D amplifier, ensuring clarity and rich details in your music. And with 140 watts total system power, chances are your music will be heard, no matter howbig the space.

Two-Way Stereo Speaker: The Marshall Woburn Bluetooth speaker houses two 1" dome tweeters and two 5.25" woofers, powered by a 4-channel Class D amplifier rated at 20W x 2ch + 50W x 2ch. Built with advanced components that deliver an accurate response throughout the frequency range, the Woburn packs a punch without compromising the details. The sound is rich and articulate across the entire spectrum, from the deep and powerful bass, throughout the midrange and onto the highest highs. The overall effect is brilliantly reproduced music, full of energy and drive.
Dual Bass Ports: The Marshall Woburn Bluetooth speaker features a Bass Reflex enclosure with two rear-firing ports for higher efficiency and deeper bass response.

The Woburn can be paired with a variety of Bluetooth-enable devices; including Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Windows Phone/PC, Mac computer/laptop, and more. The Bluetooth wireless range is approximately 33'.
- Wireless Music Streaming: You are able to wirelessly stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled device to the Marshall Woburn Bluetooth speaker. Playback control, search functions, and song/artist information will still need to be done from your Bluetooth source device.
- aptX Codec: In addition to the standard Bluetooth's standard SBC codec, the Woburn supports the high-quality aptX codec from devices like Android (OS 4.0+) smartphones & tablets. With aptX you can enjoy wireless "CD-like" quality sound.
- Multi-Device SSP: Simple Secure Pairing (SSP) allows devices to be paired without entering PIN codes. The Woburn remembers the last 6 paired devices and connects automatically to the last paired device when turned on again.
