Klipsch’s GIG XL & GIG XXL Loudspeakers Will Rock Your Next Pool Party

Your neighbors might hate you if you run a stereo pair of Klipsch’s GIG Party Loudspeakers. Your next pool party almost demands that you do.

Klipsch GIG XL and XXL Party Speakers

Klipsch has decided to enter the party speaker market with two entries, the GIG XXL and GIG XL. These portable party speakers are lightweight and designed to deliver great sound both indoors and outdoors. 

Klipsch sees the party speaker market as a great fit as many of their speakers have already been used in dance clubs, listening lounges, and at college events for over 70 years. By entering the portable party speaker market they broaden their reach even further.

How GIG Party Speakers Are Different

The Klispch party speakers consist of two models so far, the Gig XXL and Gig XL. What makes these party speakers different from other Klipsch models is that they don’t incorporate Klipsch’s Horn Technology and feature a light show that can be synchronized to your music and is customizable based on user preference.

There are also inputs for microphones to inspire karaoke parties.

Tip: A wired microphone is included with each party speaker.

Here are some of the shared features of the GIG XL and XXL.

True Wireless Bluetooth Stereo: Not only can you stream content to GIG speakers from your smartphone or other compatible Bluetooth source, but you can also use Bluetooth to pair two Klipsch GIG speakers together for a stereo listening experience.

Connection Flexibility: In addition to Bluetooth, the GIG party speakers also provide connection flexibility with 3.5mm, USB, and Karaoke mic inputs. 

Multi-Colored Light Show: The GIG party speakers include multiple lighting modes to add more flavor to music listening and the party atmosphere.

Onboard Controls: Onboard controls are provided for input selection, volume control, audio settings, and lighting effects. The XXL also includes guitar volume and echo control. 

Playtime: At full volume, the party speakers will last up to eight hours thanks to their class-leading rechargeable lithium batteries.
