Okay, we know, 2020 has kinda screwed us all when it comes to any form of partying or large gathering, but hey – this pandemic ain't gonna last forever, and besides, there should always be space on the shelf for a great quality Bluetooth speaker, whether it's for a family rock marathon, or a mosh pit for one. 

Nothing packs more punch than the monolithic JBL Boombox. For a shade under £200 at Currys (opens in new tab) you can grab one of the fullest-sounding, most durable speakers on the market. Sadly, the deal has now run out in the US – but there's still plenty of epic Black Friday Bluetooth speaker deals still going strong for those based in the States. 

When it comes to audio gear, we don’t recommend products lightly, but this one is easy to love considering it’s one of the top picks in our guide to the loudest Bluetooth speakers.

While Black Friday might be winding down, the Cyber Monday deals are just getting started – head on over to our Cyber Monday music deals page or our Cyber Monday Bluetooth speakers guide for the latest on what's hot (and going cheap).

JBL Boombox: Was £299, now £199, save £100 at Currys (opens in new tab)
At just 5kg, this speaker is light enough to carry around, yet with a rated loudness of over 100dB – about the same as your local cinema – it can easily soundtrack larger parties. The JBL Boombox is also water-resistant, making it one of the more rugged Bluetooth speakers around, and with a £100 off the list price this Black Friday, there’s never been a better time to grab one.

When it comes to Bluetooth speakers, most are prized for their small size, portability and – if you’re lucky – decent sound quality. The JBL Boombox, on the other hand, has been made with sheer grunt in mind. Despite coming in around 5kg – which is admittedly weighty for a Bluetooth speaker – this unique-looking unit can pump out some seriously window-shaking volume.

The Boombox contains two subwoofers – yes, two – meaning it delivers monstrously deep bass sounds. We also like the fact it’s IPX7 waterproof rated, so is ideal for trips to the beach or local park. If you already own any JBL speakers then you can chain them together to spread the sound even further too, which is neat. The JBL Boombox also packs in a huge battery which promises up to 24 hours of use on a single charge and can even give your phone a quick boost if you’re running low. You may or may not like the aesthetics, but there’s no doubting the Boombox’s ability to light up large parties.
