5 Stars By Schwartz on 2016-05-15 Great party speaker. In the box you get the speaker, an infrared remote, a power cord for the speaker, and 2xAAA batteries for the remote.
I knew this speaker was big but the pictures didn’t do it justice, this speaker is large and heavy, it is just over 2 feet wide and a 1 foot high when set horizontally and weighs over 26 pounds. This isn’t your typical small and light bluetooth speaker but with the built in carry handles it isn’t too hard to move it around.
The front has the speakers and lighting behind a metal grill and the bass port front and center. Strobes sit just to the left and right of the woofers just outside the grill but within the handle opening. Overall everything seems to be pretty well protected.
The speaker will operate either vertically or horizontally and has 3 tweeters in the different corners that automatically switch to whichever 2 tweeters are upright. The bottom and left sides (depending on speaker orientation) both have nice rubber feet to help keep the speaker still and protect surfaces that it is sitting on.
The right or top side (depending on speaker orientation) has the controls. You get power, volume up and down, extra bass, and function buttons along with a built in NFC tag for bluetooth pairing. Indicator wise there are LEDs for input and extra bass selection. Around the back on the same side as the controls you have the rear I/O panel. You have power in, audio in and out via RCA style jacks, speaker add and party chain buttons along with LED indicators, a single USB port that puts out 2.1A, and a cooling fan mounted just under the panel. You can connect multiple units together via bluetooth or the RCA cables to add some more sound to your environment. You can even connect it to other types of devices via the RCA inputs, I have had it connected to a Chromecast audio and the line out from my home theater receiver and it has worked well.
The speaker is able to play .mp3 and .wma file extensions from the USB port. You can do this from a phone or from a USB stick. The speaker doesn’t have a screen or playback controls but the included remote does have playback controls and basic lighting controls. In order to get the most out of the speaker you really need to be using the SongPal app that is available for Android and IOS devices. The app gives you more control and visibility of USB playback, sound EQ modes, lighting adjustment, and other settings. The lighting does change with the music and you can use the app to select the best lighting for the type of music that you are playing.
When I first played the speaker my initial impression was it sounds really good but not amazing. The speaker can get very loud and still sound good. After playing with the speaker for a while and in different places I have come to realize this wasn’t meant to sound amazing, it isn’t for the critical analytic listener, it is meant to be dropped down somewhere and provide good sounding background music. It is the perfect speaker for dropping down in a room when you have friends over for drinks, at an outdoor party or cookout, out in the garage, or even camping. The only drawback is that the speaker is AC powered only so you need to have available AC power. I was able to use the speaker on a portable inverter with no problem so you can still use it where a regular AC outlet isn’t readily available.
Overall I really like and would recommend this speaker. It has grown on me and I know that I will be using it for years to come for many different parties and events where I want to have music and easily just come in and drop this speaker down and have a good time.
Update 1/5/2017: I caught these speakers when the price was lowered for a bit so I picked up another one since I liked mine so much. It was pretty easy to add to the other speaker to make one the left and one the right.
4 Stars By alex on 2017-10-19 An awesome product! I use the three I have for ... An awesome product! I use the three I have for a home theatre set up. The "extra bass" feature is awesome when you do or don't want that extra boom depending on what your listening or watching at the time. The more You get the better it sounds, really surprised about how well they flow together, the only inconvenience is that they could sync easier and stayed permanently synced once done so. Same with the remote, sense I have multiple sometimes one speaker won't pick up on when I'm turning up or down the volume etc.
5 Stars By BEE on 2017-04-06 I love this speaker I love this speaker. I connect it to my TV's, Ipod, Ipad, phone, tablets, etc. I have used the Bluetooth capability and it works great. I have also used the RCA connections as well and they are great too. This sounds really good for what you get and I like the addition of the lights. It turns your living room into a club.
5 Stars By Christopher B. Stamulis on 2017-12-20 If you don’t like this speaker, we’re not friends It’s Perfect. Only thing I’m missing is owning a club.
5 Stars By Ryan on 2017-08-10 Sounds great - excellent bass notes. First things first - I paid full price for the speaker and will attest that this review has not been influenced in any way. This speaker sounds great. Lets face it, this is a premium priced speaker but the sound is truly impressive for a bluetooth speaker. I didn't know you could get such prominent bass notes out of a bluetooth signal but this speaker pulls it off quite nicely. The signal range it good too - I've yet to take my phone far enough for it to lose signal to the speaker. Full disclosure - I've only had the speaker for a short time, and I've read some reviews claiming the speaker has died after only a few months. I'll certainly update this post if that should happen to mine but hopefully that isn't a common issue.
5 Stars By Deborah HILL on 2017-04-02 The sound is awesome.. The sound is awesome... I used it for a backyard party and had to turn it down... Neighbors complain it was too loud... Worth every penny
5 Stars By Cynthia Bailey on 2016-12-17 Good price good quality I absolutely love this speaker. It looks good and it's sounds good. I use it for a projector which gives it a theater sound and when I have people over, I switch it to Bluetooth and it automatically connects to my phone.
5 Stars By Kurt Bronstrup on 2018-04-01 great sound, control options were well thought out Quality build, great sound, control options were well thought out, the lights are an added bonus. For those interested in knowing the power consumption is 60 watts which isn't stated in the ad or really available anywhere but the owner's manual. Some reviews claim there is distortion at 100% volume but that hasn't been my experience and I favor rock and metal with substantial bass, maybe the people claiming the unit distorts at 100% are rap fans and there's a lot of bass in rap music. If you're looking for a portable unit with a battery this isn't for you. if you're looking for great sound and a little glitter at a reasonable price the GTXB7BC is right up your ally, I like it well enough that I'm considering buying a second unit so I can link the two for good stereo separation. At $200 this unit is well worth the price. We'll be using it outside to listen to music while we're enjoying our pool and in my workshop while I'm tending to the maintenance on our cars. The comparable JBL unit is upwards of $500, I have nothing against JBL but I can buy two of these for less than one JBL, LG has a 600 watt unit but my luck with LG products has been bad and the LG unit is also much more expensive.
5 Stars By Brad on 2017-07-31 AMAZING I listen to music every night. My little bose speaker was nice but when I'm outside it can't handle it. This speaker is way louder and might even have better sound quality. Definitely way more bass. The light feature is pretty cool. Bottom line is I love it and am looking to buy another to see how good two sound when paired.
4 Stars By Dylan Lauffer on 2017-10-08 Great Speaker Great speaker. Unfortunately, the 1st speaker I got, quit working after about and hour or so. It just shut off and wouldn't come back on. I contacted AlumiGogo and they immediately replaced the speaker. Love the lights and the sound is good. Amazing customer service! I would have given 5 stars but the 2nd speaker doesn't seem to have as crisp of sound as the 1st one did. Seems to have more reverb. But, I would still recommend this speaker.
