Milwaukee’s 2891 M12/M18 Bluetooth speaker is a compact and nice-sounding jobsite-style speaker. It’s IP54-rated for water and dust resistance, and can connect to your music (or podcast) source via Bluetooth or an auxiliary cable connection. There’s even a 2.1A USB port for charging your devices.
It’s a good cordless speaker that works with both of Milwaukee’s cordless power tool battery sizes, M12 and M18.

Awesome find! This speaker is loud, sounds good and lasts a long time between charges on m18 batteries.
This thing is invincible… Mine has fallen off 4′ tables and has sat outside in a drizzle. No signs of damage physically or sonically. Love this thing.
Believe few sites have had it on special for $105 past few weeks with the free battery but they might of sold out.
Ryobi’s Bluetooth hybrid speakers are also on sale at HD, $100 for 2 (base + 1 satellite) , $200 for 3 (base + 2 satellite), $250 for 4 (1 base + 3 satellite) $300 for 5 (base + 4 satellite)
I may have to try one again. I wasn’t pleased with mine, yet I know everyone loves it.
I know a week or 2 back, the speaker was on sale for under $100 (with coupon) at one of the tools sites and it came with a free battery, no charger. Now with all these tool price jumps, I might have to grab at $119
You may want to jump on tools sooner than later, as a few retailers have the older pricing still.
M12 3/8 & 1/2″ Stubbies $179 (+20)
M18 Fuel 1/2″ High Torque $249 (+30 from old retail, but seemed to drop to $200 in October), One-Key $299 (+20)
M18 Fuel Sawzall $199 (+20, but again $149 for a long time before the hike), One-Key $259 (+10)
All the newly released tool kits went up $50. The chainsaw, circular saw, super sawzall, & table saw.
I do like those apples 🙁
I really wish I had this one! I got the m18 radio. I never use the AM/FM, I have a huge need for Bluetooth, and I have an excess of both 12 & 18 volt batteries.
Oh well win some and lose some.
There’s always a Bluetooth adapter for the auxiliary port. That’s what I did with an old DeWalt radio and it worked pretty well. A whole lot cheaper than a new radio/speaker.
Yup, I did that with my Ryobi P740 18v speaker/radio. Bluetooth adapter into the aux-in. Never used it much; the sound wasn’t great, but I had pondered opening it up and building the Bluetooth adapter into it. Right around then, Ryobi came out with the P742…
I’m guessing this doesn’t run off AC?
It normally comes with an AC adapter.
Thumbs up for the Ryobi speakers. I bought them when they first came out. Not worth that high cost (or there’s better speakers available for their original price), but a steal for the price they are now. They connect absolutely instantly to each other and you could create a type of “surround sound” if you wanted to by using multiple speakers. Although the “stock” sound isn’t bad, an eq app can punch the bass and treble up to really rock out. “Poweramp” works well if you have Android. Also, the speaker’s FM radio feature picks up a lot of stations clearly.
I’ve just been using the $50 M12 USB charger (48-59-1201) to continuously charge the $20 bluetooth speaker I already owned, bonus it can charge the battery if I’m near a USB source, and the whole ensemble is smaller than that 2891 behemoth.
It’s probably not as loud, but I don’t need to fill a warehouse.
Blain’s Farm and Fleet (farm supply store in IL and WI) has this combo in their flyer for Cyber Monday at $79 (also says free shipping over $35).
