What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

The Gigaboom is our Staff Picked favorite speaker. It's  comes in two color ways, raw or gunmetal. Staff picked because:

1) THE BUILD IS BEEFY - it's constructed with a double-shot injected FULL TPU from body to core. Most speakers use over or single shot molding processes that aren't nearly as strong/thick. This process allows us the insane 4k lbs. crushproof rating. 

Since we use TPU, the speaker also absorbs shocks better than most speakers, which are generally made from abs plastics. ABS plastics are weaker and more brittle than TPU, but are used because...well...they're about half the price to use. TPU has insanely high shear and elastic strange, making it great in impact situations - for us, from 100ft. to the dirt, or from 30ft onto concrete, guaranteed. 

2) THE SOUND IS SUMPTUOUS - this is the speaker which caused one blind tester to say it had, "depth and clarity that gave [them] chills." We cannot summarize it better. Of all its totable competitors, this 86db, 50w speaker takes the cake. It quite simply has a fuller sound, and better bass. The 6 massive drivers and 2 T.I. amplifiers just do their job. As one of our team members said, "Think B*se, but bulletproof."

The Macro.II is the Packable alternative to the Gigaboom. 

Familiar with our smaller, Macroboom speaker? It's 2x as powerful, and is a big step up in bass. This is a perfect "step-up" speaker that sounds great on its own, and CRUSHES in surround mode when paired with another RoamProof speaker. Easily Packed/Carried.

When we first started developing the Macro.II and Gigaboom, we decided we would have uncompromising standards for quality of parts and construction...

...then it was suggested we make our packaging out of cardboard. So we did the opposite, and made the packaging rugged adventuring products of their own. 

Gigaboom - RoamProof's "Camp Chest"

  • This aluminum campers chest is as versatile as it is sturdy.
  • Latches closed on two sides, w/ built in top-side handle on the fully detachable lid. 
  • Design inspired by old Aluminum coolers popular in the 1950's & 60's. 
  • Can function as a small cooler or rugged tote for camping/fire/climbing/boating supplies.
  • Size: L 15 x W 10 x H 10in

Macro.II - RoamProof's "Coal Carry"

  •  Made from Aluminum Alloy, the coal carry is an outdoorsman's perfect "go-bag."
  •  Simply twist to open/close using built in top-side handle on the fully detachable lid. 
  • Design inspired by old Aluminum lunch pails popular with coal miners years ago. 
  • Can function as a small cooler/picnic vessel, or rugged tote for camping/fire/climbing/first aid supplies. 
  • Size: Diam. 7 x H 11.5 in w/ handle

RoamProof Customer Reviews

The following are reviews from real backers/customers of our first speaker on the market, the MacroBoom. The MacroBoom is our entry level speaker, the "younger brother" of the Macro.II, and the "child" of the GigaBoom. 

"I found RoamProof browsing through Kickstarter and backed their unit MacroBoom. After months of waiting my unit arrived and I was thrilled with its performance. Unfortunately an issue arose with the speaker and it stopped working. I contacted RoamProof, provided proof and they promptly arranged a replacement, which has been roaming with me for ages. The quality of the unit is great and so is their service. Good stuff guys, I'm happy to support such a stellar company."

-C Williams (MacroBoom Backer)

"This really is an awesome piece of equipment! And it definitely is equipment. Heavy duty as all get out! The mounting attachments you get really open up the possibilities of where you can conveniently take this thing. I listen to it in my truck because it sounds better than my old worn out sound system. I put it on my dirtbike and essentially drag this thing through the mud. Hang it up in the shower. Doesn't skip a beat."

-R. H. K (MacroBoom Amazon Customer)

"This is an amazing piece of audio technology, and it's virtually indestructible. I take it everywhere - beach, pool, hiking, biking. I even take it in the shower! I have been wanting a waterproof Bluetooth speaker for years and am so glad that I waited to purchase one because the MacroBoom IP67 has more features and functions than I could have imagined. But the best part of what this unit has to offer is the crystal clear, rich and deep soundscape and the long battery life. I would recommend the MacroBoom to anyone who is wanting a portable, rugged speaker with audiophile sound quality. This is truly a top shelf product!"

- D. Cobb (MacroBoom Amazon Customer

Risks and challenges

RoamProof has been established and running for 2+ years. We've successfully run 3 crowdfunding campaigns, and continue to sell product daily through our website, Amazon, and other online retailers. We have a function system of customer service, and a small team that manages each piece of the manufacturing process. We have fully functioning samples and are poised for full production.

As with any Kickstarter, our primary/only risk is timing. We have established a history with backers and customers who trust us to deliver product. We will ALWAYS prioritize quality over timelines - However, we feel our predictions for delivery are conservative, and can be easily met. Feel free to find out more about us in the team section, or at RoamProof.com
