Summary: The Sharp portable stereo delivers quite a lot of bass and quality sound. I use it on the boat, in the garage and indoors while exercising. The battery option is nice, but the heavy bass will drain them quickly. Also, the radio option is not very good, but it is ideal for i-pod or i-phone.
Any input using 1/8" or 1/4" is ran through the guitar/vocal electronics and sounds like garbage!

Summary: ONLY BUY if you is apple gear. Android users are going to suffer. Any input using 1/8" or 1/4" is ran through the guitar/vocal electronics and sounds like garbage!! A simple out from your phone is totally overdriven and lacks any headroom. Makes everything sound like an AM radio quality. No good. The CD sounds really good. Everything else didnt work for me. The MP3 usb never worked well. I finally got a old Sanza to work but my android tablets didnt.
Speakers not protected by grills on side, otherwise ok, but not great

Summary: Pretty good box, not as good as the older JVC (not as powerful) it replaced. Speakers on the side aren't protected, so your hands touch them when you carry it. So don't buy this one if you plan on carrying it around a lot. Otherwise, a good box.
it would be by far the best box I have ever purchased

Summary: If this thing had a tweeter, it would be by far the best box I have ever purchased. A little bit on the large side, but I guess that's because of the speakers and sound it gives. I don't understand the complaints about the color, I feel that it helps it stand out, as it should, this box is amazing.
Summary: This radio sounds great - really, REALLY good bass - it will shake the windows/walls and your neighbors house. I checked it out on U-tube before purchase. Only thing is it uses the 30 pin vs. the lighting connector, but got a adaptor from ebay and works fine. Gave it to my daughter and now her friends are very jealous. I will and have been recommending it.
Summary: It is large and powerful. A unique product in the world of portables. Great sound with great bass response. Docks an IPOD perfectly. We bought this for my adult daughter so she could have some tunes. Easily presets FM radio stations and has selectable EQ settings. Has some weight to it for a quality feel. Remote control is a plus! My sons are electronic gurus and they unboxed it and set it up when it arrived. They texted me, and said, "This thing rocks!
