Ryobi has come out with a new 18V cordless jobsite speaker, PCL615, which can clamp onto a multitude of surfaces and objects.
The new Ryobi Verse speaker is Bluetooth-compatible with a range of up to 250′.
Not only that, Ryobi Verse speakers can be synced together, up to a distance of 150′ from each other.
The Ryobi Verse has a 1-3/4″ clamping capacity, and can be secured to table tops, 2x4s and other construction framing, and other such surfaces.
Multiple speakers can be synced together without having to use an app or other external means. The volume of each speaker can be adjusted independently, or synchronized via the user’s device.
Runtime is said to be over 32 hours when used with a Ryobi 18V One+ 4Ah High Performance battery.
Ryobi says the speaker delivers “crisp, clear sound for an enhanced listening experience.”
The speaker has a pivoting head and rotating base, allowing for adjustable audio placement.
Ryobi says that users can easily sync 100+ Verse speakers together. While an impressive number, keep in mind you’ll need a separate Li-ion battery for each one.
They show the speakers being used as jobsites, home, and on-the-go.
Press materials did not mention if the speaker is weather-resistant – that’s something to keep in mind if used outdoors.
