What is the usual playtime on a SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3)?
The BATTERYBOKS used with New SOUNDBOKS lasts for ~40 hours when playing music at mid-volume and ~5 hours at full volume (126 dB) depending on the amount of bass frequencies being played.Do I need to use the SOUNDBOKS app with the SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3)?
Nope, but we highly recommend using it. The SOUNDBOKS works as a speaker fully on its own—meaning you can play music wirelessly, connect devices to the ProPanel and use TeamUP to connect multiple Gen. 3 speakers. However, without the app you won’t be able to access the sound and performance upgrades. You’ll also miss out on the advanced controls and EQ profiles. Plus you can’t use TeamUp to assign speaker roles, and that stuff is really cool.Do I need to register my SOUNDBOKS in the SOUNDBOKS app?
If you want an additional year of warranty (on top of the standard SOUNDBOKS 2-year warranty) or if you want access to the full world of SOUNDBOKS, additional speaker security and the awesome features we’re currently developing, then you need to register. But if none of that matters to you, then feel free to enjoy your SOUNDBOKS as it is out-of-the-box.Why does a Bluetooth speaker need to be durable?
We don’t know what your shindigs look like, but our parties and events are unpredictable, so we designed the SOUNDBOKS to be ready for almost anything while still sounding full and loud. The coated poplar plywood cabinet of the SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) is acoustically resonant and light, with optimal strength and flex – while the coating keeps it water resistant. The internal components of the SOUNDBOKS have an IP65 rating (though the bass ports mean that it should never be fully submerged), and the electronics and battery can play in temperatures from -10 to +40 °C (+14 to +104 °F).Can I connect multiple SOUNDBOKS speakers wirelessly?
With TeamUp mode, absolutely. Your SOUNDBOKS can Host up to 4 other speakers in Join mode. Using the amazing SKAA (pronounced like the musical genre) technology, the newest SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) is changing the game with the ability to wirelessly connect up to five SOUNDBOKS speakers. Through the AUX output on the Gen. 3 Pro Panel, you can also connect earlier generation SOUNDBOKS speakers with a 3.5mm cable.Can I connect instruments and microphones to the SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3)?
Hell yes. Connect your mixer, guitar or any other instrument that uses TS or XLR outs to your Pro Panel found on the backside of the SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3). The Pro Panel has two XLR/TS (6.35mm) combo inputs (labelled CH1 & CH2), plus one 3.5mm AUX input and one 3.5mm AUX output to connect to other speakers, including early generations of the SOUNDBOKS.Can I charge and play my SOUNDBOKS at the same time?
The SOUNDBOKS was built for maximum performance while running on the battery only. The charger T-jack was designed to be used while playing at moderate volumes, but the charger is NOT a power supply. You CAN charge and play at the same time, but to avoid damaging your battery, keep your SOUNDBOKS under HALF VOLUME—12 o’clock on the dial with 5 lights illuminated—when playing and charging simultaneously. This is with your Bluetooth device on full volume.What is the wireless range of the SOUNDBOKS?
The range on your TeamUP SKAA wireless connection is largely determined by the setup you choose for your SOUNDBOKS speakers, the environment you’re in, and the amount of people moving through the signal. When using the SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) you want to make sure you have the best conditions for the wireless connection between your SOUNDBOKS speakers, and when placed optimally, the signal is tested at 50m (150 ft).
The Bluetooth 5.0 range from device to SOUNDBOKS is also dependent on the above factors, but when tested optimally, the signal is 10m (30 ft).
