Power to party loud!

Get massive JBL sound from your wireless audio devices – – for your party or your own fun. The latest smartphones, tablets and MP3 players deserve the best sound. That was our intent behind the JBL® OnBeat Rumble™ wireless loudspeaker and dock: floor-thumping, room-shaking sound from your iPhone 5, iPad mini and other latest-generation devices, including smartphones, tablets and laptops. Because it features Bluetooth® connectivity with HARMAN TrueStream™ technology, you can use any device that’s Bluetooth-enabled and hear all of your audio with power and clarity. The dock is equipped with the Lightning connector, so you can dock your iPhone 5 and new iPad and iPad mini while blasting music, watching videos or playing games. But let’s not forget about the dock’s incredible sound – an oversized, down-firing subwoofer provides rumbling bass that you can feel in your bones. For a more intimate experience, you can use your own headphones – just plug them into the onboard headphone jack. The JBL OnBeat Rumble dock works with our free JBL® MusicFlow™ app, which empowers you to edit playlists and dial in your EQ settings, and can be used with popular DJ apps to entertain your crowd with one track through its speakers, while you already check the next one over the headphone output of JBL® OnBeat Rumble™ to cut it up like a real DJ. However you go, one thing is for sure: You’ll feel the rumble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound that fill a room I love this unit. It exceeds all of my expectations. I wish I had known how good it was I would have bought more as gifts. By the time it was delivered it was too late to order more at the same price. The offers need to go about a week longer.

Why isn't an updated app for IOS 11, that can connect with this ? I have had this On Beat rumble for several years, like it a lot - but it's a shame, that you don't update JBL music app for this product :(

I have an iPhone 6s Plus and an iPad 4 mini... Will both these work with this device? There won't be anything I need to buy to make there work correct?

Asked by: JägerDave
The ONBEAT RUMBLE has a lightning connector for iOs devices, and as you would know, the iPhone 6 plus and the iPad mini 4 utilizes the lightning port which would make both your devices compatible with the speaker and you would not need to purchase any accessories for them to work.

How can I connect this JBL Onbeat Rumbel to my LED TV?

Asked by: Raj Chandran
The ONBEAT RUMBLE features Bluetooth technology, you can use any device that's Bluetooth enabled to stream audio. If your TV is not Bluetooth enabled, the ONBEAT RUMBLE also has a 3.5 aux input that allows you to run a standard audio cable from the TV’s headphone jack, to the 3.5mm auxiliary port in the ONBEAT RUMBLE.

You have conflicting answers about the furnished power supply. Is it really auto voltage (110V and 220V)? Or are different power supplies required for Germany (220V) and the US (110V) .

Asked by: stanalar
The power supply for the ON BEAT RUMBLE is set to Auto Volt so you can plug the unit into either a 110v outlet or a 220v outlet without any issues.

Does an iphone 6 plus fit in the docking set

Asked by: Lynda
The RUMBLE utilizes the lightning connector and so does the iPhone 6 Plus, so the phone will work with the dock.
