JBL Boombox 1 Specs, Tech Specifications

Here, we list the complete JBL Boombox 1 wireless speaker technical specs.  So these give its physical size, weight, waterproof level certification, battery charge time, and play time.  They also give its frequency response, power output, battery life per recharge, and power bank capabilities.  Indeed it’s obvious from reading through these specs that the JBL Boombox sounds great.

Secondly, it plays plenty loud, with its thirty watts of total output power. Plus, that hefty driving audio offers more bass than similar sized models.

Moreover, perhaps the most interesting feature, is that this speaker functions as a power bank as well.  E.g. You can charge your cell phone, tablet, or other mobile device right from this speaker’s 20 amp hour battery.  Thus, the specs by no means belie the quality JBL put into this upper crust portable Bluetooth speaker.
