Sonic Impact SoundPax review: Sonic Impact SoundPax

  • 1

The Good Portable; inexpensive.

The Bad Cardboard material susceptible to the elements; distortion at high volume.

The Bottom Line These foldable speakers will bring life--and a lot of music--to any gathering. Despite light bass and some distortion at high volumes, we were impressed with what we got for the inexpensive price.

7.3 Overall

Sonic Impact SoundPax portable speakers

The SoundPax portable speakers offer great sound that will get your party started, and they're available for a mere $69, much less than other speakers of this caliber. Designed for mobility, these cardboard speakers are particularly lightweight, and they fold into a traffic cone-looking pyramid that's 12 inches wide, 16 inches high, and only 2.5 inches thick. The SoundPax speakers come with their own nylon carrying case and a digital audio amp. No PC-related installation is needed, and setting up the speakers is fairly simple--an included sheet guides you through. Just put batteries in the amp and connect the included color-coded speaker wires to the amp and to your laptop, MP3 player, or CD player. Although we heard some distortion at higher volume levels and the bass was a little weak, these speakers produced louder and better-quality sound than other portable speakers.
