Boom! Samson’s Bluetooth Speaker Is Powered By A Motorcycle Battery [CES 2013]



CES 2013 bug LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – Most Bluetooth speakers are pitched as being ideal for taking out onto the patio for barbecues and parties. But none of them is really loud enough. And that’s where Samson’s new Expedition Express Bluetooth PA comes in. It’s a Bluetooth speaker which is so powerful that it runs off a 12-volt motorcycle battery.

The enclosure contains a 6-inch woofer, a one-inch driver, plus other inputs in the form of XLR, quarter-inch and 1/8-inch jacks plus a threaded speaker-stand mount and that battery, which will rock the pool party for up to ten hours.

It’s not the best-looking speaker, but then that’s probably a good thing, as people can get a little light-fingered around hot-looking Jamboxes.

The price has yet to be announced, but should you want one they’ll be available at the end of May, just in time for Memorial Day.
