    Hello there

    I'm looking to buy some speakers for my iPhone5 that will be loud enough to fill a hall full of dancers!

    I'd be very grateful for suggestions.

    Many thanks.

    I have a Jam box and a Big Jam box. They are portable and have great sound. I'm very happy with them....

    Bose just released the new SoundTouch systems that's basically next gen connectivity but require a wi-fi network, so no bluetooth. For bluetooth go with the SoundLink speakers. Yes I am biased with bose speakers; reliable, durable and great customer service.

    Not expecting the best but for the price and portability I think they may be okay.. We'll see though.

    First of all, best and audio in general are always highly subjective matters.

    How big is this hall? What's your budget? Always provide details and don't just assume that we know what you mean by "best" no matter what you're asking about.

    It can probably be inferred from the quality of the OP's question that he's probably not looking to drive a set of Wilson Alexandria XLFs with his iphone.

    Cerwin Vega VS-150's (black) flanked by CV AT-15's, each speaker getting 250 watts of light dimming, four floors up neighbor bitching power. There was a 15" CV Stroker (first gen) in a 5 cubic foot properly ported enclosure with its own 450 watt subwoofer plate amp in the back corner.

    Good times.... good times!

    I did later get a bigger tv. The one in the pic was a 37", later put that in my bedroom and had a 42" in the living room. At that time I also didn't have the Vega's, but had a very mint set of Klipsch Forte II's coupled with a Marantz receiver. Much better sound quality, but not knocking the CV's as they were good also. Still had the sub.

    Damn... play some Toto - Africa on those Klipsch' man... orgasmic haha.

    Always been into sound and not the TV... ;)

    Haha. I am into the tv size. I rather spend more on a large tv than good speakers:).

    This, Sir, is where we differ. ;)

    I'm content with my little 13" MBP and a killer stereo haha. I've had the big expensive nice toys, tv's, 1,400 TRUE watts surround sound and all of that, but a nice 2.0 or even 2.1 setup is all I really want. The screen is only to display the GUI for me so it's not really that important.

    JBL charge - bought this for work, I work in boiler rooms a lot and the ambient noise is loud usually. Everyone Lways comes up to me and can't believe how loud the little JBL charge gets. Plus it can charge your devices when it itself is off the charger. $150

    Bose sound link 2 - real nice, got this for my mom. Best sound of a the Bluetooth speakers out there. Cannot charge your devices, $300

    Been using the big jam box for about a year now, I use it every night at work for 8-10 hours. Love the thing so much! I work in a very loud environment and have had no problems hearing it yet.
