Portable Powerhouse

Imagine a speaker small enough to carry around with a built-in 6" subwoofer! The VG5 has huge sound, yet is still light enough to move around pretty easily.

Rugged Design

Soundcast speakers all meet IP64 or better specs which means they are totally resistant to dust, pollen, or any solid and they do not mind getting splashed.

Bi-Amped Immersive Stereo

The VG5 can really throw out big, rich sound with its active DSP amp system using dual aluminum drivers and a 6" subwoofer.

About Soundcast VG5

Soundcast VG5 Speaker at a pier

The VG5 Bluetooth speaker has the same form factor as its little sibling, the Soundcast VG3, but you’ll need a duffle bag instead of a backpack to tote it around. At a little over 17” tall and about 8” wide and deep, the VG5 is moving into the serious speaker part of the Soundcast lineup. We like the rear carrying handle which balances it out, but you probably want to find a better way to tote this 12 ½ pound speaker if you are going more than a couple of hundred yards with it.

The VG5 gets an IP rating of IP64, so like the VG3, it is pretty immune to everything but a long dip in the pool. You get a big jump up in speaker components with the VG5 as you move up to two 3” aluminum-cone drivers and a separate 6” powered subwoofer. The configuration is the same as the VG3 with the drivers firing out to the sides for big sound. You’ll be able to feel the bass with the VG5 and fill up a much bigger area than with the VG3. Two of them paired together are a great idea for your next pool party.

You get a max of 10 hours in playtime on the VG5, which will take about 4-5 hours with the included charger. Some people may decide to make it a flexible speaker and use it both indoors and out, which Soundcast realized and added an eq that changes the tonal quality with an indoor/outdoor setting. We see the VG5 as more of an outdoor speaker you take to the boat dock, a tailgating event, or out by the pool. It’s heavy enough, you’ll not want to have to carry it too far, and it does not have the long weekend battery life of the VG3, but obviously sounds much bigger.
