Back in 1985 – when Aquanet fogged up school locker rooms and kids could be found break-dancing on a broken-down cardboard box in the hallways between classes – the must-have holiday gift was a massive boombox. We’re talking about 5-band graphic equalizers, dual cassette decks with high-speed dubbing capability, and faux-chrome accents. If you were lucky, the thing only weighed 50 pounds once you loadied it with 10 D cell batteries which lasted maybe a couple of hours before fading out. But, damnit, you would lug that thing around on your shoulders bumpin’ Run-D.M.C like it was no big thing.
Thankfully, those days are over. Today, wireless, portable speakers come in packages so compact, you can fit ’em in a fanny pack – not that you would ever do such a thing. What is this, 1993?
Check out the J-Lab Crasher. It’s a colorful Bluetooth wireless speaker with a built-in, USB rechargeable battery that will pump up the jam for nearly 18 hours straight. And the best part of all: We’re giving one away.
Just leave a comment below telling us what old-school jam you want to blast with your new JLab Crasher and which color combo you want – Miami purple/mint, sport gray/yellow, air aluminum/white, or midnight black/gunmetal. In one week (that’s December 24th, folks), we’ll select a winner, close the contest and announce the winner.
Be creative, make us smile, and good luck!
