Spring is almost upon us and that means only one thing — outdoor party time by the pool or picnics in the park with the kids. Consumers have a lot of options in 2023 when it comes to portable outdoor loudspeakers and LG is making a strong play for that business.

In addition to its OLED TVs and Soundbars, LG makes a lot of other entertainment products, including its XBOOM speaker line. XBOOM speakers are designed for party and on-the-go entertainment. For 2023, LG is adding to its XBOOM Speaker product line with the new XL7 and XL5 models. Let’s check out what they have to offer.

Karaoke: The XL7 and XL5 both include Karaoke capability with a mic and guitar input with Echo Control and Karaoke Star features.

Wireless Party Link: LG’s Wireless Party Link feature allows you to wirelessly connect up to 10 LG XL7 or XL5 speakers for a room or home-filling music listening experience. 

XBOOM App:  LG also includes access to the XBOOM app (iOS/Android). This allows users to easily use the feature and setting controls for XBOOM speakers. The app also provides a DJ function that can make you the true life of the party.

Multi-Color Ring Lighting: This produces light shows with various rotating, flashing effects that perfectly sync to the music to add an extra dimension to the listening experience. 

Customizable Lighting: This feature allows users to choose their own colors, patterns, animations, and personalized messages via the XBOOM app to create custom lighting effects that perfectly match their mood or playlist.

Pixel LED lighting: This feature comes with Animation Mode which expresses colorful patterns, a Visual EQ effect, characters, or customized text on the speaker’s LED panel to enrich the atmosphere of any space.

Power Output: The XL5 provides up to  200 watts of audio output. 

Portability: The XL5 is smaller than the XL7 and has a carry handle, but it’s not a telescoping handle as is provided with the XL7. As a result, it is a little more inconvenient to move.
