  1. Good review. One question. Others say this is rated at 100 watts RMS. You say it runs on 30 watts of power. What is the difference? Thanks.

    • Hey Tom. When I mention 30 watts, it’s about the power consumption and not about how loud the speakers go.

      Most people look at the total number of watts to see how loud a music system can play. That’s why a lot of manufacturers display the total number of watts in RMS. The thing is, the RMS value is quite meaningless when it comes to showing how loud a music system can play your music. Check out this article if you’re interested in reading more about the topic.

      But don’t worry, this boombox sounds really loud and can fill up a room our outdoor space with no problem whatsoever.
