No matter where you are, the beach, backyard BBQ and especially tailgating, having good tunes to accompany and enhance your experience is a must. But music in the great outdoors inherently has its hazards between the natural elements and a place to put the source where your sound will be emitting. Good thing we recently discovered the Swimmer Duo Bluetooth Speaker from Polk BOOM and took it tailgating.
As you can see in the video, the Swimmer Duo Bluetooth Speaker from Polk BOOM is a small yet powerful portable bluetooth speaker that is resistant to the elements and can be taken anywhere. The two different attachment accessories allow you to wrap the “tail” around anything like a chair armrest, a backpack strap or even your pop-up tent leg. The suction cup attachment allows you to stick the speaker on any flat surface like a car window or the inside of the shower since it is waterproof.
(Disclaimer: We received a sample of the Swimmer Duo Bluetooth Speaker from Polk BOOM free of charge. The fact this sample was provided to us for free in no way influenced our opinion of the product nor did it impact our ability to test and review the product fairly and objectively.)
We took the Swimmer Duo Bluetooth Speaker from Polk BOOM tailgating to test it out. We chose to attach it to our pop up tent and also use the suction cup attachment and stick it to our tailgating vehicle. The bendable tail made it very convenient to hang it from the tent frame or even wrap it around the tent leg. The suction cup worked best against a glass window but could also be suctioned to the metal of the car.
While tailgating, we wanted to test the range and strength of the Bluetooth capabilities. With music playing, we walked away from the tailgating space to see how far away we could get before the sound started cutting out. We walked about 12 to 13 parking spaces away from ours before the music started to cut out. Pretty good range if you ask us. You could walk away from your tailgate with your phone playing music in your pocket and assuming the port-a-potty was about 100 feet away, you could keep the music going without having to leave your phone behind. (We suggest you resist using your phone in the port-a-potty for obvious reasons…)
The volume and sound levels were quite impressive for such a small package. The ability to pair two of these speakers for true stereo sound is also a bonus. This little guy may be small but it super durable. It is waterproof, shockproof and dirtproof. That’s the winning combination to make it more than welcome at any tailgate.
After thoroughly testing out the Swimmer Duo Bluetooth Speaker from Polk BOOM, it is definitely “Tailgate Approved”. The fact that this little speaker is waterproof and can be placed just about anywhere, it is perfectly at home at any tailgate party. No worries that your friend’s shotgun fail will ruin the speaker if it gets beer spray or worrying where to find table space to place the speaker. The ability to wrap it around your tent frame allows the music to come down into your tailgate party area and not just from one side.
If purchased directly from Polk BOOM, the Swimmer Duo Bluetooth Speaker costs $59.99 and comes in four different colors. It is also available from Amazon for $26.95. Buy two for true stereo sound from Amazon and they will ship them for free.
