Every speaker’s features are written in detail so that you can make an informed decision.
Buyer’s Guide to the Best Party Speakers:
1- Your needs and your budget:
We all have a specific budget before buying a speaker. If you have a large budget then you can easily buy the premium speaker like Sony GTKXB7BC
Question yourself; Where are you going to use the speaker frequently? At home are outside? Then search through the above list and find out the one accordingly to your needs. For example, if you live in an area where you have to use the speaker outside but the weather is always unsuitable, then you can consider buying the SoundBoks-2 water-resistant speaker.
2- Sound Quality:
You need to have a clear understanding of the different features of a speaker and how they affect the sound quality and bass of a speaker. Woofers are used to control the bass level i.e. low-frequency levels while the tweeters, on the other hand, control the treble i.e. high-frequency levels.
A standard woofer is made to produce sound between the frequencies 20 – 2000Hz. The sound quality decreases as the speaker approaches either extreme end. To cope up with this issue and to ensure that the speaker provides a badass bass, usually, a subwoofer is made to cope up with the low-frequency sounds (bass) which have a range of 20 to 200Hz. This basically means that sub-woofers increase the sound quality at low-frequencies.
Watts tells you about how much power the speaker can generate. The best way to determine the loudness of a speaker is by checking its wattage. But you should know your surroundings in which you are going to use the speaker and only then you can check which speaker would work best.
What does dB rating mean?:
High decibels (dB) means the ability of a speaker to use the power from the amplifier. The higher the dB range the louder the music in general.
3- Portability and other Features:
You should always check if the speaker is portable enough for you carry it around. Checking the dimensions and weight of the speaker can give you a good guess about this. Moreover, do check the features which the speaker is providing. Like; Bluetooth connectivity, weather-resistivity, battery consumption etc. You might also be interested in features like LED lighting-display and the overall look of the speaker. These are the things which you need to ask yourself before going to order the speaker.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the Best Party Speakers:
What is the difference between a passive and active speaker?
The main difference between an active and a passive speaker is the presence and the absence of a built-in amplifier. If you use active speakers, you are saved from the hassle of buying a separate amplifier for it. For passive speakers, you need a separate external amplifier. The type of amplifier depends on your needs.
Check out our guide to buying an amplifier. For more details, don’t forget to read our guide for best studio monitors – which basically is made for studio monitors but that will surely help you to grasp the concept of passive and active speakers.
What does RMS mean for speakers?
The RMS (root mean square) value generally tells you about the power handling of the speaker – how much continuous power it can handle. This information is of importance when you are working with a passive speaker and you want to buy a compatible amplifier for it. You will have to make sure that the RMS and peak values of your speakers and amplifier match for proper working.
Why should you pay heed to “Watts” or “Peak Power”?
“Watts” is the measure of power the speaker can handle. Two values are generally given
- RMS Value – That we have already discussed above.
- Peak Power – What power the speaker is capable to handle in short intervals (bursts) without getting burnt/damaged.
What does dB Rating indicate?
dB (decibels) is a unit to measure the loudness of a speaker. Sound Pressure Level (SPL) also known as ‘Sensitivity’ is measured in decibels also. The higher the SPL value, the more the loudness. Remember that for every 10dB increase, the sound will be twice as loud!
Conclusively, I would like to add that if you are looking for sheer power and bass then go for Soundboks-2 or SONY GTKXB7BC. These two are the best party speakers that will run just great whether it’s a pool-side party, BBQ or a basement DJ night, they will never disappoint you. However, if you are low on a budget you might want to take a look into ION Audio Party Rocker Live made absolutely for parties.
