JBL Xtreme 3

If you're in the market for a wireless Bluetooth boom boxes to power your summer backyard barbecues and pool parties, Amazon is offering a new all-time low on a JBL model well worth a look. The price of the JBL Xtreme 3 portable Bluetooth speaker has been slashed there, dropping it to just $180, and taking a whopping $200 off its list price. We've seen it hit $250 periodically in recent months but today's price is far below anything we've seen in the past. This is a limited-time offer, though, so take that into account when planning a purchase.

The Xtreme 3 offers big sound for its size, including strong bass and decent clarity, delivering up to 100 watts of total power via two 2.75-inch woofers and two tweeters. The speaker has a detachable shoulder strap and weighs in at just 4.3 pounds, making it a portable option you can tote around. And it's rugged with an IPX67 rating water and dustproofing.
