The box that rocks

It's a good thing JBL visited us with their PartyBox 1000 powered speaker. Actually seeing it and hearing it in person, I understood just how remarkable this speaker is. The massive, 76-pound PartyBox 1000 kicked out the sound with forceful clarity.

The box that rocks

JBL PartyBox 1000

It's a good thing JBL visited us with their PartyBox 1000 powered speaker. Actually seeing it and hearing it in person, I understood just how remarkable this speaker is. The massive, 76-pound PartyBox 1000 kicked out the sound with forceful clarity.

And its light show was first-rate. Blocks of color pulsed and rippled down the front panel of the speaker in time with the music.

Many music options

What can you use a PartyBox 1000 for? A Bluetooth speaker, portable PA system, karaoke machine — even a guitar amplifier. Stream music wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. A stereo minijack input lets you make a quick connection from a portable device. A stereo RCA input lets you connect a CD player or a turntable with built-in phono preamp. There's also a USB port for plugging in a thumb drive loaded with music files.

Big JBL sound

The PartyBox 1000 features one high-frequency compression driver, two 7" midrange drivers and a 12" subwoofer with a rear-firing port to reinforce the bass. There's also selectable Bass Boost if you want to make your tunes thump even more. And it's all driven by a built-in amplifier rated at 1,100 watts maximum output.

DJ control pad

One of the coolest features is the built-in DJ control pad. A set of 16 color-coded pads on the top panel can control the built-in light show, so you can set the mood. You can also use the pads to trigger built-in sound effects from preset drum, keyboard, piano, and "DJ" sound banks. Plus you can store an additional 16 completely customizable sound samples, accessed through your thumb drive. You can even capture sound loops and mix them together on the fly.

Air Gesture wristband

The speaker comes with a JBL Air Gesture wristband. It connects to your PartyBox 1000 via Bluetooth, and helps you step up your DJ game. When you select colors for the speaker, the wristband displays the same colors. Move your wrist one way, and the colors change. Move it another, and they change again. Shake your wrist or clap to trigger programmed sound effects.

Add your voice to the mix

Use the PartyBox 1000 as your portable PA. There are two 1/4” input jacks — one for a microphone, the other for a guitar. Individual gain knobs for each input let you set their levels independently.

Or you can play along to music already playing through the speaker. A Voice Cancellation button removes vocals from the music you're playing, letting you be the star. No need for special mixes. You've got instant karaoke!

Strength in numbers

If 1,100 watts maximum power isn't enough, you can pair two PartyBox 1000s for two-channel stereo. They can be paired wirelessly via Bluetooth, or with RCA cables. In fact, every PartyBox speaker has its own built-in amp and a line output, so you can daisy-chain PartyBox 1000, PartyBox 300, and PartyBox 200 speakers via RCA cables.

Surprisingly portable for such a large speaker

Weighing in at over 76 pounds, this is a lot of speaker to haul around. Fortunately, the PartyBox has an integrated carry handle and built-in wheels so you can transport it without a roadie. Just wheel it in, plug it in, and it's ready to rock when you are.

Greetings Vinny, and thank you for your question. The Party Box 1000 does not have an internal battery, so yes it does have to be plugged into household current.

I hear a small static sound on my JBL 1000 party box when no music is playing?
stephen  Mar 15, 2023
1 answer
This is most likely nothing to worry about, Stephen. I would double check your sources (say more static when using line/mic ins), but with no source music playing when linked with Bluetooth there will be a small amount of sound (the static you mentioned) when volume is turned up loudly. You will notice this actually with most every amplifier/speaker combo that does not utilize a gate on the signal if you did get close to the speaker with no source playing. This PartyBox 1000 is more like a PA speaker than a home speaker and can reach some pretty impressive sound levels! If this is more than just a slight static, feel free to call our Technical Support Guru's and we can help you troubleshoot any items purchased from us. You get that support for life!

Where would you find model number on the JBL party box 1000?
ryant  Feb 14, 2023

JBL posts the serial number near the inputs on the back of the party box. Their manufacturer model number which is #JBLPARTYBOX1000 is sometimes posted on the bottom.

Why does my sound go out after going past 50% volume? (bluetooth)
kevin  Jun 27, 2022
1 answer
Good question. So there could be a few different reasons why your sound keeps going out past 50% when you bluetooth but if you could give us a call at 800.324.9695 one of our advisors can help troubleshoot the issue better.
arielle  Jun 27, 2022 (Staff)

Unfortunately JBL does not provide details on the tuning of the subwoofer section of this system.

This JBL PartyBox 1000 cannot power additional speakers. The amp built into it will only power the speakers that are built into it.

Can I connect my singtrex kerokie to rc line in and still Bluetooth songs from my tablet at the same time?
guy  Jan 29, 2021
1 answer
Yes, you would connect it to the mic input and then bluetooth your device in. The Partybox 1000 is amazing!
jared  Jan 29, 2021
What is it's outdoor rating? I'm thinking about using it on my boat dock.
steve  Jul 04, 2020
3 answers
Agreed! It is an amazing piece of sound equipment. My buddy has one and I have one. We connected them together and rocked the neighborhood.
jared  Jan 29, 2021
I only use the speaker outdoors. It is smooth and loud. If you were to have 2 of these (you can link together) it is the equivalent of having a high end DJ at your place. You can have a block party with one. Two will shake the neighbors homes if you turn the bass up.
nicholas  Jul 05, 2020
Has fun of power and sounds great outside but you'll need an outlet not waterproof though
