The Soundcast VG7 Bluetooth portable speaker weighs 9.5 kg and measures 48 cm by 28 cm just like all Soundcast speakers. This speaker is made to be used outside.
Soundcast VG7: characteristics
The Soundcast VG7 has a high efficiency 7’’ inch boomer with an IMPP cone (polypropylene), a rubber suspension, and a ferrite motor. The boomer is oriented downwards for more powerful basses.
Four 3’’ full range speakers, each including a neodymium motor and an aluminium cone, project the stereo sound 360 degrees.
The speaker is bi-amplified, 30 watts for the basses and 2 x 15 watts for the medium high, each driven by a type D amplifier.
Soundcast VG7: interface and use
The Soundcast VG7 has a control panel. The speaker has the following buttons: on/off, play/pause, Bluetooth activation, volume +/-, TWS ( Qualcomm® TrueWireless™ Stereo). It is possible to mute the sound coming from the speaker using the mute button. This is indicated by a colored LED.
The new feature of this Soundcast VG7 Bluetooth portable speaker is an “inside/outside” button which makes it possible to switch the speaker balance depending if the speaker is used inside or outside. The outside mode increases the basses for more dynamics. The high tones are precise but not too clear. The bass is neutral and the sound is very precise.
Soundcast VG7: technology and connections
A 3.5 mm jack auxiliary input is available in order to connect your tablet, smartphone, or other devices. A yellow led indicates whether or not a devise is connected using the AUX input.
This Soundcast speaker is equipped with the Qualcomm® TrueWireless™ Stereo technology which makes it possible to connect two Soundcast speakers together, thus creating a stereo system.
The Soundcast VG7 Bluetooth portable speaker uses the 4.2 Bluetooth version and can remember up to 8 devices. It is equipped with the Hi-Res AAC + aptX Bluetooth (high definition quality Bluetooth) thanks to a 24 bits processor.
A NFC connection is located on top of the Soundcast VG7 Bluetooth portable speaker so that you can easily connect your smartphone to the speaker. It is a positive feature and provides an ultra fast connection.
There also is a USB output to charge your smartphone, tablet, and all your other devices.
Soundcast VG7: Autonomy
The battery life varies depending on the volume (between 10 and 20 hours). A red led indicates the battery level. When the speaker is charging, there is a solid red light. When the battery level is low, the light blinks. When the speaker is charged, the light turns off.
