5W Immersive Boat Sound Experience: Stone 180 Review
The 5W Immersive sound gives good amplification but has been reviewed by many users as “not a very loud speaker” and is considered okay for a small room. The sound of the speaker is well and good when it is set at 70% to 80% of its volume level but the clarity simply fails to be good enough when the volume is set to a hundred and listeners can hear the distortion in the sound from the speaker. Also, the bass is not good enough.
Boat Speakers Review
Battery Capacity of 800mAh:
The company declares that the speaker has a battery capacity of 800 mAh which runs up to 10 hours but when used in real, it showed a battery backup of only up to 6 to 7 hours when the speaker is played on 80 % of its volume capacity. However, the battery backup strength significantly further deteriorates when played at the full volume capacity. It takes not less than up to 1.5 to 2 hours to charge up to full battery capacity with a 5 W charger only. The 5 W chargers are strictly recommended as any higher watt of the charger can affect the speaker’s durability and users cannot claim the warranty on this ground later.
