The Tough Turtlebox Gen 2 Speaker Provides Excellent Waterproofing

The Turtlebox Gen 2 has taken everything that made the Gen 1 a best-seller, and stepped it up a notch—or three. With the addition of a wider and gripper (plus bombproof!) handle, a stronger brick-patterned speaker cover, a newly located control panel, stainless steel tie-down, and full waterproofing, it’s a tougher device than ever.

Despite its light weight (just 10 pounds), it packs some seriously loud sound, with an outdoors-specific frequency curve that slices through wind noise and covers real distance to turn any garden hangout, beach day, or backyard BBQ into a proper party. It’s also got mic and AUX inputs, Bluetooth pairing to create surround sound, USB-C output to use it as a portable charger, and a 25-hour battery life (at easy-listening volume).
