A new Bumpboxx coming soon !!!
...well, not exactly a bargain
Not a bargain, for the money? , it's 1/2 the diamond box and 122 db is quite loud. I am a DJ since I was 13. I'm 49. I get a lot of requests to do gigs outdoors without a power source or having to get a generator. This would help solve that issue. I'm actually on the fence between this and the soundbokx 2 . Even though the new bumpboxx might sound better, the soundbokx 2 I can put on tripods, waterproof, sandproof where the bumpboxx does not have that capacity.
I have heard the diamond and it was shocking how much quality bass that thing put out but I can get 2 soundboks 2 for the same money as 1 diamond box and put them on a tripod for a wedding or party in the woods.
Now for distance, since it has several drivers, the bumpboxx might actually shoot longer footage because of the driver arrangement. I am waiting for reviews to come out before I jump on either. There is a few people that have done distance tests between the other bumpboxx and diamond, and soundboks. I'm hopping they grab this so I know what's the better choice for my needs.
I like the fact that bumpboxx does make them with speaker grills for protection unlike diamondboxx does not....
Agreed on the grills. If there was a way i could get them up in the air easy for outdoor or beach weddings, I would have jumped on the pre-sale. Right now that is one reason I am leaning towards the soundboks 2. It has a pole mount and water resistant. From a DJ / pro outdoor standpoint, getting them up in the air for longer distance when you have 200 people in the way is key. My 2nd wish that I have expressed to soundboks, it has a 40 hour battery, why can they put an outlet to power a laptop and hard drive? I would take a 20 hour battery life powering a laptop and external drive in a heartbeat. Most gigs are only 6-8 hours anyway.
I feel Bumpboxx is on the right track but, they could expand it out a bit more and appeal to another market with little cost to them.
JBL is already starting to jump into the battery powered units called the Eon One Pro. Companies like Bumpboxx and Soundboks have been in the battery operated field longer but, im sure JBL will get that share of the market just because of the brand.
Sorry to go off topic a bit there.
oh you want a box like the TDK that had the pole mount feature as well....
Or the soundbox2 since its louder vs the TDK. And has a mic input.
I still prefer my RX-A2 but then I do not DJ either.
im to old for this modern stuff and it's mono....don't need anything louder than an m90, sony fh909
Love how the brand name is carved into the top of it.
yes thats cool Reli
i wonder if they fixed that mono problem with the newer models ?
i think they plan some stereo models in the future my friend
