Q: I am more of a bassy songs listener , i loved the design of marshall But looking at the price difference and extra feature of being as a powerbank by xtreme is very cool. which one should I buy
A: Both speakers have exceptional sound quality, however you’ll find that the Marshall Kilburn is able to go louder. It has a 70 watt power output in comparison to the JBL Xtreme ’s 40 watts. That does not mean the JBL Xtreme can’t get very loud, it just means the Marshall can probably handle higher volume levels. That being said, the JBL certainly has a lot more features than the marshal, such as its power bank feature, water resistance, and its hands-free speakerphone functionality. So, it’s really about what’s more important to you. Both have subwoofers, and decent drivers. The xtreme has 2 subwoofers, but they’re smaller than the kilburns 4 inch woofer. The xtreme is definitely a good choice when it comes to money value, and what you’re getting out of it. If you plan to be out, and on the go with your speaker then I believe the xtreme would be the better choice. If you want something strictly for home use then I would suggest the Marshall Kilburn .
Q: I am planning to Buy one JBL xtreme and two JBL Flip 3 to listen synchronously movie sound by keeping JBL xtreme in front and JBL flip 3 at backside (L/R). So Anker speakers are better than JBL and Can anker speaker synchronize with each other like JBL?
A: The Anker speakers listed have a much smaller watt output the JBL Xtreme 's setup. The JBL Xtreme has two 63mm woofers, and two 35mm tweeters. Unless you're trying to listen to all your music at very low volumes, then none of them would match up to the JBL Xtreme in terms of the power the speakers can pump out. The highest watt device on that anker speaker list is about 20 watts with the Anker A3143 . So I would say, no, they are not better than the JBL Xtreme 's speakers. As for whether the anker speakers can synchronize with each other, the answer would be no. None of the anker speakers listed in your related section have the ability to connect to other speakers like that.
Q: Hi there, Is the JBL Xtreme worth the difference in price to the JBL Charge 3? Why is it so much more expensive?
A: The reason that the JBL Xtreme is so much more expensive is because it is much larger and more powerful than the Charge 3. It's difficult to see in pictures, but the Xtreme is more than twice the size of the Charge 3 and requires a shoulder strap to carry around. If you're looking for a huge booming speaker for a party or something, the Xtreme is a great choice, but because of its size it's not nearly as portable as the Charge 3 (which is also very durable and waterproof).
Q: Is Vava Voom 21 anywhere close in bass and loudness to JBL Xtreme?
A: You'll find that the VAVA Voom 21 's goes sufficiently loud for most scenario's, and the bass is exceptional. The device has two 5W drivers, two passive radiators, and a 10W subwoofer. It does only have half of the power output that a JBL Xtreme has, so you'll find the JBL Xtreme can reach much higher volumes before sound degradation takes place. The JBL Xtreme has been reported to have 80 dB, while the VAVA Voom 21 has been reported to have 78 dB. In terms of how much louder a difference of 2dB is, if you compare 70 dB to 80 dB it's about double the loudness.
Q: Regarding Bluetooth specs, JBL Xtreme state four ft, does that mean you have to be in a 4-foot range?I'm confused...
A: Hi there, I think you maybe perhaps mean the Bluetooth version? Bluetooth 4.1 (used for this item) is able to offer a reliable connection to up to about 30 ft (10m) away from the targeted streaming device, as long as there aren't any barriers like walls in the way.

Water Resistance

Speakers range from not being able to handle even a drop of water to being able to be fully submerged in water for several minutes. Do you plan to take your speaker outside? To the beach? To the pool? In the shower? Then you definitely need to verify the level of water resistance before purchasing. You can tell the water resistance by the IP rating—the higher the rating, the more resistant the speaker is to the elements. For reference, the first digit refers to dust protection and the second digit refers to water protection. It reads as: IP68. Anything higher than IP66 will be dust- and splash-proof, meaning it can handle some contact with water, but cannot be fully submerged or soaked.

Battery

Battery life for Bluetooth speakers is measured in milliampere hours (mAh). Manufacturers will report the battery life of a speaker in the average number of hours it takes to empty from a full charge. Keep in mind this number is based on medium levels of usage. If you play the speaker on full volume, it will drain the battery faster. Some specialty features like using the speaker to charge your phone or casting an LED light show will also drain the battery faster. The manufacturer reported number is just an estimate, and may be slightly different based on your usage.

It’s also important to consider is the type of battery. Rechargeable lithium-ion (LI-ion) batters are ideal, but some speakers only take standard or rechargeable AA/AAA/C/D batteries. You may even find Bluetooth speakers that recharge via solar power—great for outdoor use!

The JBL Xtreme is definitely worth the difference in price if you are looking to hit very high volumes. It has two woofers that are 63mm each, two tweeters that are 35 mm each, and a power output of 40 watts. the JBL Charge 3 has two 50mm transducers, and has a power output of 20 watts. That means the JBL Xtreme has twice the power output, thus can get much louder.

How do I charge this item? I can't find the charger - is it sold separately?
Related: Nubwo A2 Pro, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 26 days ago
A: Every USB charger will do the job

Using the provided USB cable, connect it to a common USB chargeur (like the one from your phone) or to a USB port on your computer. The first option is the best choice and I would recommend a 1 A charger, because the battery is huge and takes time to fill.
