RCA outputs to connect two together with a wired connection, USB playback to upload a set of music that is pre-made for your party, a DJ pad, USB charging for external devices, and concealed wheels rather than ones that show.
Up to 11 hours of play using an optional rechargeable lithium-ion battery
2 combo XLR – ¼” inputs
3.5 mm input
Frequency Response: 62 Hz – 17 kHz
The overall sound of the Bose S1 Pro Portable is solid, but the frequency response caters more towards a flatter, neutral response. While you’re not going to get exaggerated bass from these, they do still sound great.
Sony Bluetooth speakers, to me, have some red flags on them because they don’t offer full specifications for their speakers.
You cannot find the frequency response anywhere on their site or among review forums, which makes you expect the worst.
However, from what we do know, the SRS-XP700 comes with LED lights, omnidirectional sound, and a bass-boost feature.
What Should I Look For When Buying A Party Speaker?
What makes a party speaker or party song the the best is the amount of bass that it has.
The bass is the frequency of a song that really gives you the feeling in your lower body that makes you want to move.
So, when considering speakers for a party, prioritize the bass frequency response of the speaker.
How Big Are The Parties Going To Be?
When buying a party speaker, consider what the size of the party will be and how big you need the party speaker.
The most important thing is to avoid spending too much money on a speaker that is too powerful or not enough money on a speaker that is not powerful enough.
Will The Party Be Indoors Or Outdoors?
This is a big factor in the decision to choose how much power and loudness that you want in your party speaker.
If the party is indoors, you will not need as much loudness as you would if you were throwing an outdoor party, as the sound inside will echo from the walls and stay inside easier.
You want to find a battery that can last all night if you are playing outdoors or don’t have access to a charging port anywhere nearby.
Bluetooth is one of the most crucial features of a party speaker. Having Bluetooth connectivity will allow you to have your phone on you as you walk around the party instead of keeping it next to the speaker the whole time.
Depending on the Bluetooth version, you may or may not be able to walk around the entire party if it’s a bigger and more crowded house.
For example, Bluetooth 5.1 has four times the range as Bluetooth 4.2, so the version will matter in this context.
Whether we like it or not, having LED lights emitted from your party speaker is widely liked by party-goers, especially if it’s a younger crowd.
So having LED lights that can enhance the party will make the party speaker better.
It will depend on the size of the party, but generally they should have a max volume of at least 90-95 decibels.
Is 100 Watt Speaker Loud?
100 Watt speakers are fairly loud, and very loud for highly portable bluetooth speakers, but most speakers for parties will be at least 150 watts or above.
I would recommend something around 180-240 Watts for a house party with more than 30-40 people in it.
What Is RMS Speaker?
RMS is the amount of continuous power that a speaker can handle. It is a measurement of continuous watts over time, rather than a measure of watts that can be provided in one short burst.
Most speaker companies will have an RMS specification somewhere on their product page to give customers an accurate representation of their product, as it is important for speakers, especially loudspeakers.
How Loud Is 2000 Watts Speaker?
A 2000-watt speaker is typically loud enough to provide sound for smaller weddings (with a pair of them), and smaller outdoor venues.
They have an average of 129dB max output measured one meter away from the speaker, which is extremely loud for portable Bluetooth speakers.
Does More Watts Mean More Bass?
Not necessarily. Bass is determined by a few different things. First of all, it is important to have a bass frequency response that is relatively low.
Relatively low is around 45 Hz or below for large speakers and if you get a speaker any lower, it will inherently produce more bass.
The second most important factor is the RMS of the speaker, meaning how many continuous watts that the speaker has going through it.
So, yes, more watts means more bass because watts will mean more power, and bass is a part of the overall power, but the bass frequency response is more important than watts.
When it comes to large Bluetooth party speakers, the two industry giants with the best products are JBL and Ultimate Ears.
For a house party, every situation is going to be different depending on size, but I would recommend the UE Hyperboom as the best speaker in its class, but the JBL PartyBox 310 comes in as a close second.
