Several years ago Soundcast was an early innovator in the Bluetooth and wireless speaker categories, bringing together dealers and consumers that wanted to add outdoor audio to their homes without adding siginficant costs to their electronics installations.

Adding to its selection of products, the San Diego-based manufacturer announced the latest product to its VGX line at CES 2017

"We designed the VG1 and VG7 as a direct response to the market's demand for high-definition Bluetooth speakers designed for optimal sound quality no matter the performance setting," says Oscar A. Ciomei, president and CEO, Soundcast.

"We studied the market extensively and have moved forward with our partner's and consumer's desire to continue to produce products that offer studio-type sound in the outdoors. The VGX Series embodies the notion that there shouldn't be a need to sacrifice really rich audio for a rugged, weather-resistant enclosure."

The VG7 outdoor speaker employs a 7-inch down-firing woofer and four 3-inch drivers. Supporting its use indoors and outdoors, the speaker also features a choice of EQ (equalization) modes that help to tailor its sound for any type of placement location.

The speaker is engineered to produce a wide and immersive soundstage, and offers the ability to link multiple VG7s to cover larger listening areas.
