    JBL XTREME Wireless Speaker

    I have been looking at the JBL XTREME wireless speaker at Best Buy. Do you think they are sufficient for musical presentations in senior centers? Thanks

    No .. If looking for light and quick, I'd go with the AA ELS GO 8BT .. not the greatest sounding unit, but very easy to set up, runs for hours on a charge, has a decent mixer .. plays off SD cards, USB sticks and Bluetooth .. or hardwired. I paid $320 for a pair at the DJ Expo. Good for events that don't need a lot of sound, but you'll get more than the JBL.

    I agree with Steve. It's the best $177 I ever spent on a Speaker

    If you want something that sounds better, I'd go with PYLE Battery Powered Speaker. I have one of these, and it came with VHF band Lavalier head set, and microphone built in. The mics are cheap, but they work "ok". The speaker sound quality is better than the ELS 8 Go BT, but the ELS will get louder. Pyle PPHP109WMU - You can find it on Ebay for $169.86 New. The FM Radio on it is very weak though...almost doesn't work. Bluetooth works great on it.

    Hey DJ Dick good name.

    Years back I knew of a DJ called Big Dick Entertainment. He was a 340 pound DJ. That's all I know though.

    The Governments new way of spying on you as you DJ. Pretty in green. They got the technology from the Aliens.

    Not sure about the green other than it's on the new srm line too.. I'm not a fan of the boom box look either, but it's got 2 separate compression horns and a decent size low-end. It'll run idea open for hours and sound clear as a bell doing it.its just been a flawless piece Everytime it comes out it's bag
