SPEAKERS AND A COOLER...THE PERFECT COMBINATION

Why combine these two things together? Think of any event you go to where you would bring your cooler. Now, think of any event where you wish there was music.  The reality is, they always go hand in hand.....Cold drinks and good music.  Coolers are typically bulky to transport but are essential for every outdoor gathering.   Outdoor stereo's typically lack the power and capacity needed for a full music experience.   When combined, you get the benefit of a full sized sound system, without the added burden. 

HOW MUCH SOUND ARE WE TALKING?

We've all experienced the same situation, your out and about with a group of friends and the only music you have is someones phone, or just as disappointing, a portable stereo that just doesn't cut it.  The stereo system needed to really enjoy your music is not gonna be found in a device that fits in your pocket or a small pouch, especially when your outdoors.

This is why we decided to put our focus on making the ultimate outdoor stereo that gives you huge sound, without being a huge inconvenience.  This is what gave birth to the Boombox Cooler.  It's a full range sound system, with a weekend long power supply, that is seamlessly integrated with a product that goes hand in hand with it, a beverage cooler.  We realized early on the synergy that exists between these two products and used that as our foundation.  We were able to create the stereo system with the quality and loudness we needed, without compromising the performance of the cooler or detracting from its portability.

Take a look at one of our engineers discussing the design and performance of the cooler:

Let's talk sound and performance...

In addition to loudness, it's important that the stereo system is physically able to playback all types of sounds...highs and lows included, so you can enjoy crisp vocals and deep bass tones at the same time...

 With a stereo system that has been specifically designed for use outdoors, it's just as important that the components and infrastructure are just as 'Outdoor Ready'

WHAT ELSE IS BUILT INTO THE DESIGN?

The Boombox Cooler doesn't stop at just music and a cooler.  Other features we felt were essential to the design include:

  • A built in auxiliary port, so you can plug virtually any device that plays sound into the cooler, including a microphone or your guitar. 
  • An attached USB port for charging your smart phone to ensure it can keep up with the Boombox.
  • A fully wireless Bluetooth(TM) connectivity so you can keep your phone in a safe place no matter where your cooler goes. 

Keep in mind, the entire system is weatherproof and portable! Any drink spills or splashing from water is no problem for Boombox Cooler. Also, the entire unit weighs in under 25 pounds, keeping the unit portable and user friendly.

WHY CROWDFUND?

The truth is, we are ready to get a new custom designed Boombox Coolers for ourselves.  We have spent countless months planning and designing what would be the perfect Boombox Cooler, and now its time to make it! In order for that to happen though we have to be willing to make quite a few, that's where crowdfunding comes into play.

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE GET FUNDED?

First and foremost, the creators of the Boombox Cooler will be thrilled! Funding would enable us to place the first order of our custom designed and carefully engineered Boombox Coolers. We have spent the last two years testing our prototypes, perfecting our design, and engineering the ultimate balance between stereo and cooler with no compromise to performance or portability of either part.   It has been a long road from concept to production and we can confidently say we have taken all the precautions necessary to make a quality product for everyone to enjoy. This funding will get us past the prototypes you see in our video and allow us to create what will be the next big thing in the outdoor sound.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge we will face is during our transition to larger scale manufacturing. We have established all of our relationships with reliable suppliers and manufacturers and are ready to start production. We will be heavily involved in every step of the process to ensure the final product is a high quality product. That said, if any component or manufactured part doesn't meet our standards, then we will be making the necessary changes. This may come with a toll of taking more time then anticipated, but we don't want to put an inferior product out on the market, so patience is appreciated. On the flip side, if all goes smoothly, we will do our best to get the Boombox Coolers to your home sooner then our expected delivery!
