Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing speaker! I got the boombox 3 just over a week ago and all I can say is WOW! This speaker is amazing for its size, it is alittle bit and heavy but nobody should be complaining considering the sound it puts out. Its literally a portable concert! I own the Boombox 2 also which is still a great speaker. But in my opinion the 3 is better. The bass is very deep and the mids and highs a crystal clear. It gets very loud with no distortion. I also own a partybox 200 and the boombox 3 sounds better with more bass. If you decide to purchase a boombox 3 you will not be disappointed! Remeber, you only live once. Just go for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packs a Punch This will get everyones attention, neighbors beware. It is loud and is the best sounding product I have seen that you are able to carry around. Bass, Mids, Highs are all crisp and clear. I do have a large 2 acre lot, if I am up late at night, I will turn it down slightly. Easy to connect, super long range, i can walk all the way back to my house, and it's still connected for great range. Long play time, the 24 hours is accurate. My only knock is that it may be a little large and heavy for your liking, but if you can get past that, you will not need anything else. Amazing product as always JBL. Thanks for bringing us this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice boombox3 This speaker is great. I used it at a get together at my house and had it outside and the sound was awesome. I use it inside the house as well and the mix between treble and bass are great. I used it with the JBL app as well and this boombox 3 does the trick.The handle fits perfect in the hand and is very easy to carry around. The look is simple and sleek. This is one of the best speakers I have. Wish it would connect to the party box and charge 4 I have but unfortunately it does not. This is the only draw back I see. The sound is of high quality, crisp and clean. Would recommend to anyone. Easy to connect and play. Battery run time is awesome I played it for 8 hrs straight and still shows over half battery left. Charging is simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speaker - Incredible Sound and Battery Life! Great speaker with incredible sound quality, convenient portability, and a long lasting battery life! The sound quality is great, even when you turn the volume up to the top. This speaker can get very loud especially for a speaker of this size. This speaker is perfect for any situation. Great for parties, whether that party is a casual barbecue or a bumping pool party. The fact it is waterproof allows you to relax when around water. This speaker is portable so it is very convenient to bring anywhere without having to be plugged in. The battery life lasts a long time as well which means you can use it all day long. It is perfect for playing loud music during workouts as well. This speaker is my new favorite speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique sound I received the bb3 and i am very satisfied and happy. Unique sound with sophisticated subwoofer bass. I have made the comparison with the bb2 and the bb3 is louder and has a cleaner sound with more sophisticated bass. I fully recommend it

how to fix problem with other people connecting to my speaker

Asked by: kgame
thanks for bringing this to our attention. We understand that you want your speakers fixed so that you can enjoy music by yourself. For now, there is no available feature to put a password on your JBL Boombox 3. What we can suggest is resetting the speaker to factory default settings. In power ON mode press and hold the "Volume +" and "Play" buttons at the same time for more than 3 seconds reset the speaker.

is it stero or mono?

Asked by: GTrilogy
Our JBL Boombox 3 plays in stereo coming from 2x40W RMS-midrange drivers and 2x10W RMS-tweeters .

Boombox 2 has 45-20Hz frequency whereas Boombox 3 has 40-20Hz Frequency. Correct me if I’m wrong, it means BB3 is much more louder than BB2 ? 

Asked by: gp915
Thank you for your question. Frequency has nothing to do with the volume, it is the range of the sound that the speaker can produce so it might sound more full. Should you wish to receive further support, you may contact the Harman Customer Support team by telephone, email or chat in order to receive direct assistance. Please see https://uk.harmanaudio.com/support-contact.html#ns for further details. Thank you.
