FIND ANSWERS QUICKLY!
Welcome to the forum!
We don't usually share that information since it does not tell the full story, and we focus on delivering sound quality and volume more efficiently than most speaker systems. This means that sharing a watt/channel number is not the best indicator of how BIG JAMBOX sounds. That being said, it does employ am 18WPC Class D amplifier, but we still strongly suggest going to hear one for yourself.
You can find demos in stores like Apple and Best Buy! We think you will be impressed
I dont have any measuring toolkit with me but I can tell you that my living room with approx 35m² is really really well filled with music - lets say it is **Shhh**ING LOUD for it's size!
I find this response to be very dissapointing, Jawbone. As a Big Jambox owner myself, I would be very upset if I was given the same response to this good question. Technical specs are a very important part of products like this, don't be like Bose. You are very open about your products' batterylife, weight, and size, so what makes this any different? For any still curious, the information is easily available on the web, but regardless: The Big Jambox has dual 2.2-inch (high/midrange) drivers; dual 2.2-by-3.8-inch passive radiators (for bass), and 18-watt-per-channel digital amps (which should give the Big a total of 36watts). - info from soundandvisionmag.com
Thats great to know, but those specs alone make it better by far than most any other speakers at that size and package, why would you not give that information when asked?
Fully agree... I am tempted to go for this speakers as there seems to have a lot of nice features that I am looking for but I dont feel comfortable...
- No specs on Watts / Power
- No IE9 support... (This one I could really not believe)
- A lot of post with people facing issues with Windows x64
- No informationon Windows 8 / IE10 which is about to be released.
As a Windows user, this really does not give me confidence
I agree. In fact, I just replied to their lack of candor with this message to customer support:
Anyway, I was looking for the watts info for the small Jambox, so my search isn't finished yet. 18 watts sound fairly decent for the larger model, so I don't see why they are trying to hide this information. The only reason I can think is that it doesn't blow away the competition enough to justify the inflated price; what they don't realize is that this number won't even scare away an audiophile, much less a more casual customer.
The reason it is a good product is because of all the features that it offers, in addition to the appealing design.
The main reason I will likely be returning it to Target (even though I bought it when it was on sale) is because of the inflated price tag. However, I would have been a lot more likely to keep it if they had just replied and told me the number, whatever it was--as long as it isn't something like 0.5 watts.
It is one thing to not list it under the product specifications on the box or the web page, but it is kind of insulting to not tell a customer who took the time to send an e-mail to customer service who just wanted to know something very basic.
