Great value By:
They have good sound. For what I am using them for they a perfect. I have them connected to my patio tv. The sound is clear and were so easy to connect of the audio cable jack from tv to speaker. I would recommend them for someone that is looking for a good outdoor speaker that will hold up to the elements.
Good Speakers By:
Needed something for outdoor movie nights. This works great for what I need no problems as of yet.
So far, so good. By:
Good speakers. Enough sound quality for my deck/patio.I have read that these fail after a few short months of use. So far, so good.
Sound great and very easy set up By:
Surprised about how good the speakers sound, especially at this price! Exceeded my expectations. Very easy set up and was playing them within 5 minutes of taking them out of the box. Very satisfied and would recommend.
Good Speakers for the Price By:
Speakers arrived quickly and were easy to mount. Sound is real good for the price. We mounted them in an outdoor picnic shelter and they provide plenty of volume for our area.
These speakers are wonderful! We have many wireless cylinder speakers By:
These speakers are wonderful! We have many wireless cylinder speakers. We can never find them and when we do, they’re dead. These connect every time and don’t need a charge. Great sound too!
Good little speakers for a great price! By:
I mounted this set of speakers outside on my back porch. It’s a screened-in porch so I have them facing the chairs that we sit in. We go out there to listen to music. The Bluetooth automatically connects with our phones. The sound is great, not fantastic, but they are definitely worth the purchase.
Great value By:
Installed these under our pergola on our deck. For the price, the sound quality is outstanding. Easy to pair, plenty loud for our needs.
Easy set-up By:
Sounds great and they are easy to set up and install. A breeze to sync with Alexa. Can't wait to use at our Labor Day Cookout
Worth the money By:
Works great... range could be better with the iPhone but when it’s hooked to Alexa it’s great. Loud enough for my patio

Drives my Klipsch RP280s beautifully! By:
I had two Klispch RP280F towers that my A/V reciever wasnt driving very well. So I started searching for home audio amps and came across this smoking deal! This thing drives my Klipsch tower speakers very well. I didnt even know what I was missing out on until I hooked it up! I am very pleased with this purchase!
Using this for a speaker system on a submarine By:
Exactly what I was looking for
Awesome but too heavy! By:
This amp is a beast! I use them with a pair of. Behringer b215s amazing tones and tons of power to spare.Only gripe is they are too Damn heavy. One of these amps weighs almost 30lbs. The XLS versions weigh only 9lbs but are more expensive. Imho its worth the extra money for the reduced weight.If you are running a stage rig where you need mains, plus wedge monitors you're going to need more than one amp in your rack.Good luck loading that in and out of venues, up stairs or tracking them through grass or across a busy street, because the manager of the venue wont move his car, or the venue has no dedicated load in lanes.Bottom line great product, but buy the more expensive and lighterweight XLS MODEL
Cinco estrellas By:
Este producto bastante buena calidad lo recomiendo 100%
Works Great. Just What I Needed. Runs Hot. By:
I had a Sonos burn out. The outdoor speakers were too powerful for it. This is great. I now have an amazon echo going into it as the source and this has enough power to really pump up the volume on my outdoor speakers. Very happy. Good value compared to other units.
Suitable for home use By:
Excellent build for the money
Awesome power By:
Awesome amp!! Great power, good price. Went great with my setup
Beautiful Amp By:
Very powerful
It Works Amazing! By:
I bought 2 new crown amps, this XLi2500 and I also bought the new XLS2502 Crown amp. The XLi2500 is a Class A/B amp and weighs 29 Lbs. The XLS 2502 is a Class D amp and weighs only 11 Lbs it also has a built in cross over. I use the XLi2500 for my 2 18" Subs and the XLS2502 for my 2 15" mids with tweeter horns and use a dbx 223xs digital crossover to seperate the lows and the highs, It Works Amazing!

I picked this up to replace my power amp section of my 15 year old Nad c370 integrated Amp, It was plug and play and it soundsas good as the finals that use to work in the Nad.. The only negative the power amp has is no 12v trigger to turn it on with the preamp (c370).Happy I purchased it, and it was cheaper than repair cost for the finals in the Nad

Insane sound quality with portability = perfection! By:
We own a wedding business and provide sound for ceremonies on the beach. We needed portable, yet high quality, and battery powered speakers. We put off purchasing one for several years (and own two speakers from a competitor) but we needed a third and decided to bite the bullet and try out the BOSE S1.Wow. I was blown away. The sheer volume it puts out is incredible. We had a guitarist play for a beach wedding ceremony and the output was clean, crisp, and beautiful. I love the tonematch effects integrated into the speaker and the fact it links to the Bose app. The Bluetooth pairing was simple and worked flawlessly. We have used it for vocalists, instruments, and cueing pre-recorded music and in all circumstances it has exceeded our expectations. For being so small it also provides incredible bass and low ends. I can’t say enough good things about this speaker. If you were considering the cheaper competitor off brand, spend the extra $ and get this speaker. The sound quality alone is 100x greater. You won’t be disappointed!
Small, versatile By:
I own 2 QSC 1000w speakers but at 15lbs, this little unit is easy to load, setup and my go-to in most situations. The sound quality is good enough that I accept the trade-off.
Es más liviano de lo que esperaba By:
Muy buena potencia y fidelidad de sonido
High Quality By:
Amazing clear sound. Easy to use,.
Good times - hello summer! By:
Fantastic sound, and plenty loud for backyard party.
Best portable speaker ever. Sounds great. By:
Wow! Great sound. I love this speaker. The bass is great and music sounds crystal clear!
Great Little Speaker! By:
Love the inputs and the Bluetooth option! Perfect for a small setting!
Great tones for vocal and guitar, super easy to use, light weight By:
So far so great,Guitar and vocal Tone is awesome, used on 2 gigs one small bar, and one out door music in park. Sounded great in bar, also sounded great outside but the fullness and warmth of system kinda faded once beyond 50 or 60 feet away. Still could here it fine just sounded a bit thinner beyond that.Great system for small gigs, very lite and easy to use. I live it. And if I get to where I need more I will upgrade to a beefier system but will always use s1 pro even as a monitor
One bad ass speaker By:
Awesome sound and mobility
Excellent Bass Practice Amp By:
Bought for Bluetooth access to music from my iPhone, but have also found this to be an excellent practice amp for bass guitar (Fender American Deluxe 5-String Jazz bass). The built-in EQ feature is amazing! Battery life is good with no hassle charging. Love this amp.

I know, I've never heard of them either, but... By:
So I was a bit skeptical about these speakers only because I didn't recognize the brand. I can't speak into the durability because I've only owned them for a month but I can say that the sound quality far exceeds the Yamaha speakers that these replaced. It was very noticeable. The most notable differences are the cleaner highs and deeper mid bass. Also, the Yamaha speakers were only 2 years old so I can't say they were worn out.
Excellent By:
Very good sound and build quality for the money
Five Stars By:
Nice sized, sound great, adequate bass (for the size of speakers)... good purchase.
Solid, great sounding speakers! By:
Solid, great sounding speakers! They've outlasted one Missouri winter thus far and still sound great.For those wondering, the threaded inserts on the back of the speaker take a 6mm x 12mm screw. I combined my speakers with a OmniMount 15C Speaker Mount and attached the supplied plate (with the mount) directly to the speaker with 2 stainless steel 6mm x 12mm machine screws (per speaker). Solid, reliable setup.

I am pretty tough to please and everyone that hears these is impressed just like I am with them.
Excellent outdoor speakers! By:
Sound is very sharp with good punch. Completely outperforms several other indoor bookshelf speakers I have on hand that came with a $700 home-theater-in-a-box system from Onkyo. The mounting hardware is simple, provides a quick and easy install. Couldn’t be happier! Have so far seemed to hold up to the elements quite well, though it’s only been a few weeks.
