ION Audio has announced the introduction of three new water-resistant outdoor speakers, all with wireless Bluetooth streaming capability. Recognizing an ever-growing demand for wireless outdoor entertainment solutions, these three new ION speakers give customers the ability to choose their speaker’s size and loudness capability to perfectly match their requirements, with the added bonus of being IPX4 water-resistant. That means whether a quick spring shower pops up or someone wants to use their speaker near children splashing in a pool, any of these new ION speakers is ideal.

The Block Rocker Splash boasts an impressive 8-inch 2-way speaker system powered by a 100-watt dynamic power amplifier. Its rechargeable battery lasts for 100 hours, so the fun keeps going without missing a beat. It streams music wirelessly from any Bluetooth device and also has a built-in AM/FM radio, plus it comes with a microphone and cable so users can be the MC at their own event or even have Karaoke parties in the rain!

The Tailgater Splash is very similar to Blocker Rocker Splash from an operational and feature standpoint, but it’s slightly more compact with a 6 ½-inch 2-way speaker, a 50-watt amplifier. Its trim dimensions make it perfect for tailgating or anytime you’re
taking a lot of gear with you and space is at a premium.

Tailgater Express packs much of the same performance and functionality as its larger brethren, but its extremely compact size and lower price means customers can enjoy ION’s outdoor sound and weather-resistant convenience in any situation.

“ION has always been known for delivering entertainment solutions that anticipate even the most imaginative customer wants,” said Wendy Fortin, Product Manager for ION Audio. “Our new water-resistant family of wireless outdoor speakers builds upon our history of producing great-sounding outdoor products, but with the added ability to enjoy them by a splashing pool or when the weather turns bad. If you’re willing to laugh at the weather, ION is right there with you.”

U.S. Retail Prices for the Block Rocker Splash, Tailgater Splash and Tailgater Express will be $199, $149, and $99 respectively. They will be available in the Spring of 2016.
