Sade Adu

The Sade period for this American life coincided with the purchase of an AWAI boombox with a graphic e.q. and pulsing bass woofer The Awai Boombox was too big for a Say Anything carry for anyone other than the Rock but looked nice on the mantle all the same.  Do you remember your first listen to the minimalist vocalist Sade? The hard thing for anyone not versed in the Sade vibe is her exquisitely paired down vocal. Not an extraneous run in her repertoir, Sade utilizes her sultry instrument with full vigor and the understated delivery. Subtle, charming,  Incomparable, Sade.

This is one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers I’ve ever had on the Unbox Therapy desk.

Here is some more info from the manufacturer –

The Exos-9 is the only portable Bluetooth speaker that boasts 5 active speaker drivers, including a 6.5-inch dual voice coil subwoofer, in its category.

Other speakers in the category have NO active subwoofer and are simply not as powerful. The Exos-9 features 200 watts of continuous power where the others top out around 40 watts.

How are we able to provide more powerful, better quality sound at a better value than the others? We believe in putting more resources into our products than into TV ads and celebrity endorsements. This allows us to build the very best products and offer them at the best value.

Linking two Exos-9s is easy and provides either stereo separated (L+R) or dual stereo (LR + LR) sound. Entertain a 75-guest party that will surely draw the attention of your neighbors and local authorities.

Crank the bass, mids, or highs. Or crank them all. We won’t judge. With 4 available pre-sets you can trust our taste or fine-tune the EQ to your liking. The customizable EQ makes the Exos-9 perfect for every genre of music as well as podcasts and audiobooks.

Sharing is caring unless your friends have poor taste in music. Share control of your Exos-9 or apply the Bluetooth lock to keep it paired to your device exclusively.
