If you’ve ever considered placing outdoor speakers in your backyard or by the pool, you know that most require wires for power, which can be a bit limiting, or you have to bring them inside for recharging.

Wireless speakers have been around for a long time and are available in every price range. In order to stand out in the marketplace and be priced at $129.99 (down from the original $169.99), the House of Marley Get Together 2 Mini would need to excel in many ways to justify the cost. Do they succeed? In my opinion, wholeheartedly yes.

We’ve previously covered SOUNDBOKS speakers, so when the latest SOUNDBOKS 3 Bluetooth Speaker arrived at my doorstep, I already knew this wasn’t the typical “Portable” Bluetooth speaker. Built for performance, the SOUNDBOKS 3 speaker looks more like a monitor you’d see in front of a stage at an outdoor summer concert. It’s truly a massive speaker at 31.5″ tall by 19.69″ wide by 15.75″ deep, and it weighs about 35 pounds.
