Soundcast has added a new premium outdoor speaker to its VGX Series. The VG7 combines four omnidirectional three-inch drivers with a seven-inch down-firing woofer in a shock-absorbing, weatherprpoof cabinet that measures 18.9 inches tall and weighs 21 pounds. This portable, battery-powered Bluetooth speaker supports aptX and AAC, and it features indoor and outdoor EQ modes to tailor the sound to each environment. The VG7 is available now through select retailers for $799.
Soundcast has announced that the VG7, the latest release from the award-winning audio manufacturer’s VGX Series of premium, powerful portable speakers, is now shipping. The VG7 features 360 degree sound for an immersive sound profile and is equipped with the shock absorbing and weatherproofing capabilities that come standard with any Soundcast release, allowing for clear playback in any listening environment.
The VG7 features a proprietary long-throw, down-firing woofer to underscore booming low-end sound range and volume for large outdoor areas. Encompassing four omnidirectional 3″ drivers, the portable Bluetooth speaker produces fully immersive sound, creating a listening environment reminiscent of home theater installations. Indoor-outdoor EQ mode also allows sound to translate evenly no matter the listening environment, with outdoor mode providing an upper bass boost when engaged and indoor mode reducing bass levels. Early reviews of the VG7 upon its debut at CES 2017 praised the speaker’s “superb highs and mids and chest-thumping bass (TechHive).”
“Soundcast conducted extensive market research when designing the VG7, and we found that consumers want the ability to move their speakers to different areas of the yard based upon their activity, whether they are in the hot tub or the outdoor kitchen area,” said Charity Hardwick, vice president of sales and marketing, Soundcast. “The VG7’s powerful, 360-degree sound and formidable, weather-resistant design makes it the perfect speaker to fill a homeowner’s premium, outdoor living space with audio.”
Available for purchase for a limited time only at goSoundcast.com and later available for purchase at a Magnolia Home Theatre or your specialty A/V home retailer domestically and internationally.
