How many watts do I need?

If you want to find out what the volume of each speaker is, the wattage of the portable speaker is one of the specifications to look for. But, wattage only doesn't describe the loudness of a speaker. Much more complex indicators need to be considered. To keep things simple, the wattage can give an indication of the maximum volume. Always be careful comparing the wattage of speakers. For example, a speaker of 100W will not be twice as loud compared to a 50W speaker!

What wattage do you need?

As a rule of thumb, the JBL speaker with a higher wattage will indeed be louder and have less distortion on higher volume levels. Besides, at lower volumes the sound quality can be better. The best question is to ask yourselve where are you going to use the speaker? Will there be much background noise? Or do you need a large or an open space to fill?
