Yes, a regular bottle more than triples the physical volume of the Sodapop speaker cabinet, enabling the speaker to push more air and produce over 10db louder sound! For the human ear, this will sound approximately twice as loud.
No, but the speakers come with a USB charging cable, so you can charge it from your computer, phone-charger or any other charger with a USB connection.
Yes, this speaker has a 3.5mm aux port and is equipped with a 3.5mm aux cable that allows you to connect to a non-Bluetooth device via an aux cable.
You can press the “+” or “-” on this Bluetooth speaker. Press once will change to prev/next song and press long will turn up or down the volume.
This is fun to experiment with! You will get a different sound and a little bit more bass, but to fully make use of a larger bottle you need bigger speaker elements, this is something we are working on for future models of the Sodapop speaker.
You can watch this video from Unbox Therapy where they try with different sizes of bottles:
And this video from Stu´s Reviews:
Yes, it will connect with all smartphones, tablets and computers with Bluetooth activated.
The bottle is optional, the speaker delivers excellent sound when used by itself. It only gives you an inexpensive and easy way to upgrade your sound when you need it. This makes the speaker the perfect travel companion. Its small, and easy to carry with you in your bag or luggage, and a suitable bottle is available all over the world.
Well, the physics is roughly as follows: very general, sound waves are produced when a flexible membrane (diaphragm) attached to an electromagnet is vibrating in the speaker element. This membrane pushes the air inside of the speaker cabinet to produce high and low frequencies. The bottle more than triples the physical volume of the Sodapop speaker cabinet, enabling the speaker to push more air and produce over 10db louder sound in the 60-250hz audio spectrum range (where is where you’ll typically find the «bottom» of the bass and kick drums etc), than without the bottle.
In addition, the elastic walls of the bottle also boost both the high and low frequencies, as it becomes a “part” of the membrane and helps to push the air inside the closed cabinet. This results in the feeling of warmth in the bass without loss of definition. The problem with other small speakers with bass boost (they all use a passive bass membrane inside a very small cabinet), is that they only boost the bass and this makes the music sound boomy and less defined.
So, there you have it, real bass requires real space.
