Is this the Most Bass from a iPhone Speaker Dock?

0 comments
American's love bass. Compared to Europeans and Asians, we love bass more than anyone. Don't believe me? Go to your local hi-fi store (if you are luck enough to have one in your area) and listen to a pair of B&W speaker compared to say a mainstream brand like Polk or Definitive. You'll notice a distinct difference in the manner in which they portray the bass portion of the program. But this is for a different post.

Today we look at the Pyle Home iPhone speaker dock, meant for non-iphone 5 users. This unit packs some heavy duty specs.
  • S/N: 85dB
  • Weight: 13 Lbs.
  • Drive Unit: L/R Channel 5.0 Inch
  • Frequency Response: 150Hz - 20kHz
  • Output Power: 300 Watt Max - 150 Watt RMS
  • Dimensions(D x W x H): 485mm x 225mm x 210mm (19.1" x 8.8" x 8.25")
Thirteen pounds is a pretty darn heavy speaker dock. But given it looks nice and has a large amplifier complement and decent S/N ratio, it certainly should be considered by those who like their bass to have substance.  Five inch woofers are not large by bookshelf speaker standards but are killer in a device of this size.

Audiophiles need not apply. Despite the definitive boom in this box, most audiophiles will note the lack of definition in the low end according to most reviews. But most folks will just hear loud satisfying bass. And honestly, for  $108, you really can't ask for much more.
