Soundboks makes big Bluetooth speakers with big speaker sound. The existing model wasn’t exactly easily portable, but now with the $699 Soundboks Go, you can take that big sound anywhere, and for a whole lot cheaper.

The third-generation Soundboks is a beast. It weighs 35lbs, has a backpack accessory, and it can connect to up to four Soundboks using the SKAA wireless protocol. But good luck finding four other people who own a $999 speaker.

The Soundboks Go does have the same TeamUp functionality as its bigger counterpart. The speaker measures out to 18 x 12 x 10 inches and weighs close to 20lbs. That’s about half the size of the Soundboks Gen 3.

The Go is rated IP65 for dust and water. You also get a whole bunch of sound customization options via the app. Those include custom EQ and preset sound profiles.
