    I've seen pretty much nothing but rave reviews on this "mighty" portable speaker on Amazon and YouTube and would really like to find a portable, battery-powered (rechargeable) yet not anemic sounding speaker to use with my Amplifire for spontaneous mid-volume jam sessions both indoors and outdoors and also for just jamming/practicing at home at reasonable volume levels.

    I'm not delusional (lol not much anyway), so I know it's going to be loud enough to hang with a full acoustic drum set and a bassist by any means or is going to be able to rattle the windows or replace a guitar cab, combo amp or powered PA speaker with a 10" or 12" driver, but for the above mentioned uses, if anyone here has any first-hand use with this speaker and any decent modeler, could you share your thoughts? Would this do as well as say a 6"/8" powered studio monitor? Everyone raves about how loud the thing is and how much bass it can handle and put out without distorting. Seems like it would make a great practice/intimate setting jamming speaker solution based on reviews and clips that are out there.

    I have an Aiwa Exos9 it's ok For a bedroom

    Rather like a mini Firehawk 1500 Speaker array

    But Roland Cube Street EX goes louder at gig volume

    So do a pair of TC Helicon Voice Solo FX150s

    You should have a listen to a Yamaha THR10 going into the aux input with your Amplifire. Amazing little amp plus the built in modelling is also great. Yamaha market this as a "3rd amp", well worth checking out.
