Altec Lansing - RockBox XL Portable Bluetooth Speaker Review Thanks @BestBuy! #Ad @alteclansing #myalteclansing

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

Growing up, I could never sing on key, but, I nearly always carried around my boom box. It had a double cassette deck along with AM/FM radio. I took it to places like 4th of July fireworks where radio stations played music synchronied to the show, and I was sure to share (play it loud). The Altec Lansing RockBox XL Waterproof Bluetooth Portable Speaker is today's equivalent, where instead of music coming from a cassette or the radio, more typically, it is coming from a streaming service like Spotify.
While I liked to carry my boom box around, the RockBox XL is the perfect party speaker. It weighs just over nine pounds so I wouldn't want to carry it around for that long. Instead, position the speaker to take advantage of the music coming out of both sides of the pyramid shaped design. The speaker deliver bass boosting sound that will light up the party! With 5 different LED light modes, customize your lighting feature to match your music. Then, watch the built-in LED strobe lights dance around to the beat of your music blasting out 50 Watts of soundthrough the dual 3 1/2" Ferrite Woofers, 30mm x 2 Mylar Tweeter, and dual 160mm x 83mm Passive Radiators.

Partying with the RockBox XL is not limited to indoors, too. With summer still here, you can bring it to a pool party and not worry if it gets too rowdy. Not only will it float upright in the water, but it has an IP67 waterproof rating to protect against all the elements. IP67 means the unit can be dropped into a body of water up to 3 feet/a meter deep for half an hour.

If you're concerned about your party outlasting your speaker, the RockBox XL can last for 20 hours of battery life. At that length, you should be more concerned with your phone running out of power to play the music, but, the speaker has that covered, too. It has a built-in USB charging port to ensure your music won't stop when your devices battery does. The one thing it does lack though is a Qi Wireless Charger.
Sound out of the speaker won't disappoint. First, setup is a breeze, syncing like nearly every other speaker/headphones nowadays. Then, the music happens. You can get some heavy bass out of the speaker or listen to something a bit more classical. The speaker didn't disappoint. It is a bit of overkill for your bedroom, but if you need something perfect for an indoor/outdoor party, you won't be disappointed with the Altec Lansing RockBox XL Waterproof Bluetooth Portable Speaker.
