Fantastic sound very clear 5amp 18volt battery plays for 5 12hr shifts with out needing to be charged and goes in to the weekend easily. Only thing missing is radio if you dont want to use Bluetooth
Quality speaker excellent
Good speaker, perfect for site working, 5amp battery last a long time.
The sound quality is great. The bass is plenty deep enough for me and the volume is plenty loud enough for my purposes.I'm using 18v 5ah batteries and it's playing most of the day only using one battery. I've also used a 12v battery for a while which obviously didn't last as long.The volume needs to be turned up separately on the unit and your phone. I've had other speakers where the volume adjustment on the phone adjusted the volume on the unit but this does not have that.I did see a review which dropped marks because the phone charging usb port was on the outside which is not helpful when your phone is in the compartment, but the compartment has a notch to allow the lead to pass through which does solve this. It's also highlighted in the manual. Unfortunately in my case my phone is so long that the door bends the wire a bit tightly. However a 90 degree usb-c charging lead would solve this. (samsung note 10+)
I've had a few Makita radios, this one is the one one I've seen with an EQ setting that Allows you to mix up your settings for different types of music, the lack of radio is a little annoying but you can always just download the radio station app and play that through your phone
Amazing sound and build quality live the fact you can link up to others !!
The best makita speaker,
works well and sound is very good just what we wanted
