Thodio .50 CAL A-BOX™ The Original Ammo Can Boombox
The Best Wireless Ammo Can Speaker System
The .50 CAL A-BOX is a wireless bluetooth speaker built into an original 50's design .50 CAL ammo can. The A-BOX is a compact power house which produces a punchy clear sound far exceeding your expectations for a portable speaker this size. It's ready to be taken to the "party"field and beyond.
Next to its uniqueness, the robust military spec design ensures it can handle bumps, drops, some rain and even some napalm that would melt any other plastic speakers on the market.
You can use these wireless speakers anywhere at any time. Whether you’re at home, in the park, at the beach or in case you need to intimidate the enemy in a warzone from a helicopter, yes, Apocalypse Now.
We reinforced and insulated the ammo can with 3 different materials to get it to sound as great as its hand crafted solid wooden brother, the iBox XC does.
The 200 watts RMS audiophile amplifier driving the custom filtered kevlar coned coaxial speakers with softdome tweeters are what makes this box boom. Louder and with more transparency than any portable bluetooth speaker or boombox you have ever experienced.
Everybody in the neighborhood will know who is coming when you turn this baby up, whether youre inside the house or outside…
"Militia chic with clear and punchy sound" -Wired Magazine on the .50CAL A-BOX
"It's difficult to describe literally how amazingly good this speaker is (I am talking about Thodio Audio’s .50 CAL A-BOX). I have had top notch audio gear: studio gear (Neve, Genelec, DynAudio, Avalon, Neumann..), guitars (Fender, Gibson, Gretch..) and guitar amplifiers (Fender, Mesa Boogie, Bad Cat, Diezel..) and others. But I’ve never been this impressed about any piece of audio gear like this box. I had last weekend a party where 50 people were dancing, and the sound came only from this box. And we were outside. It’s insanely good sounding and so loud and punchy, 2x100 W. The sound stays clear all the way: it sounds fantastic also when the volume is turned down. People said it’s impossible that the sound came from that speaker. Me too. It makes people smile wide. This is SO MUCH ahead of big brands’s portable speakers that are on the market. This personal review sounds ridiculous, because I don’t mention any flaws, but there ain’t any. I ordered it with an USB bus and with an optional battery (which lasts 46 hours). I have charged my mobile phone now 4 times from the speaker's USB-bus, played about 15 hours and it keeps going. I haven’t got yet a chance to try the guitar bus. The speaker is so well hand made that it will last decades: if some parts needs to be replaced one day, it’s easy, because you just open the lid and change the part you want. 5+ stars out of 5. P.S. (Now one month later I have charged the speaker 4 times and it just works)" -Antti Suomalainen aka Lex Luthor Music Producer, composer Helsinki, Finland - Facebook Review
"I expected something good but the sound is just perfect, I've got 2 80Watts home audio speakers pluged on a amplifier, with an already very good quality but your box beat them on the punchy aspect, the gradings are just perfect, it slaps you in the face, and no vibrations, every detail is over-clean, you're a Dutch magician" -Charles D. from France on the .50 CAL A-BOX
"I received my A-BOX about a week ago. I love it! Great design, great sound. Can't wait to hit the beach with it this summer! Thanks again for the great product" -Joseph P. from the US on the .50 CAL A-BOX
"The sound is amazing!!!!! I have no idea how so much sound can come out of such a small box!! and a metal one at that!! Absolutely fantastic job mate! Worth every penny. Well done sir" -Jose R. from the US on the .50CAL A-BOX
