I am concerned with the crackling sounds that are occurring and the fact that I lose power in them regularly. Why is this happening when they are so new?

Didn't even work right out of the box.


I bought this as a gift for my dad for his birthday. When I received it in the mail, I could tell that the box had previously been opened and re-taped. My dad opened the present on his birthday and it was a disaster. The speaker didn't even work and...

Wireless TV Speaker

No good


Was great for about three days. Great sound. Then the unit just shut off. Changed the batteries and started plugging the unit in with the dc plug, but then it started shutting off even that way. Save your money.

Love, but having a beeping problem


I got one of these a month ago for outdoor use. I like it a lot. But today it started beeping. Beeps twice then a few minutes later again. Continuously. I have tried with my iphone, my mac, plugged in and on batteries. No change and it won't stop doing...

Works perfectly


There were lots of wires and cables but i managed to figure out which one was which without the instructions. Most of the time, i use the transmitter and my daughters hook it up to their Ipods or laptops to play music in our backyard for parties or...

2nd one I have purchased, Great product!


Have ordered from Home Depot Site before and am never disappointed in the level of service I receive. Needed the Speaker with the additional transmitter and was disappointed the one in the stores only had the one with Bluetooth capabilities. Slight...
