ok.. i have been waiting for this Kaboom to finally make it to the states.. i received mine today.. some things to mention.. this is a 40 watt kaboom.. not the 52 watt older kaboom.. the side firing subs are also smaller.. if you love the deep deep bass of prior Kaboom models.. dont buy this one.. if you like moderate "in your face" mid/bass.. then this Kaboom is for you.. it's almost the same size as older kabooms.. and has a managable wieght.. so carrying it around wont break your back.. item is "MADE IN CHINA" unlike older kabooms that were solidly biult in Malaysia.. and it shows.. cheaper plastics and parts were used in this Kaboom..

item lacks the durable shoulder strap/remote holder from previous Kabooms.. it's now a funky strap/plastic lachy thingy.. it also does not come with batteries for the remote.. a sign of cheapness.. is it worth $300? nope.. $150-$180 perhaps.. IPOD intergration is simple at best.. it does simple functions.. but it's not fully intergrated.. but the main reason i bought it is that it protects the IPOD from damage.. this it does well.. i did not try the USB input.. but i'm sure it works as intended..

bottom line.. if you want the BASS that Kabooms were known for.. this will not fill that void.. stick with the older units

but if you want a nice compact carry anywhere self contained boombox for your IPOD this will do fine.. it does get plenty loud..

sign of the times.. the day of quality electronics is no more..

Use to have a JVC Kaboom Box when they first came out when they had a cassette and was blown away from the sound! Been without for sometime now and music just wasn't the same! Decided to purchase one on Amazon and so glad that I did! Missed the awesome beat that it produces and powerful bass. Not sure about some of the negative reviews I've read about the sound because it has great sound to it.

THIS is my second BOOMBOX, from the first time I saw them in the 90s I just love them so, the masquline, massive cylindrical shape realy got my complete attention!!. Then the round, dynamic sound quality with a deep mellow bass got me spellbinded!! I love the heaveiness of them as well!!. MY beloved mom was almost frightened when she first saw it, she exclaimed, "this is a MONSTER of a radio..wow!!!" the excitement and satisfaction continued for years untill I moved and left my favourite GADGET behind, I search high and low and just could'nt find one!! only to discover that they were off the market!!.Imagine my disapointment!!.
I waited, and to my suprise they're back!!. I purchased mine at BRANDSMART USA, it is basically not as weighty, loud and thick as the earlier ones but it's very very close in overall appeal and sound quality. I prefer the earlier ones, but this will do nicely. IT sounds much better inside an enclosed room than outside. I don't like the carrier belt, the hooks are fragile, I removed mine.
They are using less and cheaper materials to make them in CHINA. MALAYSIA & INDONESIA did awesome jobs with the first ones.
Built for Ipod and USB, I know that they will do very well on the market.
Overall these POWERED WOOFER CD SYSTEMS by JVC emit a fantastic sound with a heavy bass that I'm fully satisfied with. As a single unit...they are realy great, far greater than any other radios i've ever heard, peraphs the greatest radios in all the world... It is indeed my favourite GADGET...Give one a try and very quickly... it will be your favourite GADGET too...

I purchased the new version of the kaboom boom box locally thinking it would be of the same quality. I was wrong. I will say they have made it ipod compatible to a degree and it can play mp3's off of a usb drive. The bad is they redesigned the way the bass drivers vent and made them smaller. They use to vent out through tuned ports on the back of each side of the box, now though they vent through the front. The old kaboom consumed 50 watts according to its UL label which means it had a stronger amp. The volume on the old model also went up to 50 and only sounded bad when you got close to that even with bass music. The new kaboom only consumes 28 watts so you know they are lying about its capability right out of the gate and the volume only goes up to 30 and sounds bad with moderate bass close to its limits. I own the original so I can make a far comparison. I will say this will maybe impress people who have nothing to compare it to. I wanted to upgrade for the purpose of the ipod and usb drive. I think JVC is ripping people off with this boombox.
