        Awesome power, has louder sound than expected and works very nice! The mic It came with didn't work but i really don't care, I got it to shoot videos so I don't feel limited when not having a power outlet to juice speakers! Its a great buy and I will buy another when this one gets old and beat up.

            Has a powerful loud sound that by looking at it you wouldn't believe it. I use it to shoot music videos.With a internal battery this makes it perfect you don't need a generator or have to use the car radio lol. Looks very professional to clients.Had 250 people at the last shoot the music was loud and clear!!!!
