The Slix Bluetooth speaker has been designed with the aim of being "genuinely portable", with splash- and weather-proofing also on board. And you can buy it as part of a double pack if you wanted to pair two together.

The i-Box Slix features a 6W speaker, which the manufacturer claims to offer "compelling sonic delivery". It also features a rigid chassis with a rubber casing to protect it against every day use.

Connectivity comes courtesy of Bluetooth, while a hands-free speakerphone with built-in microphone is also onboard. The speaker is IPX5 rated, making it splash- and weather-proof and this means it'll be unaffected by rain and can be used in the bathroom without a fuss.

Designed with portability and convenience in mind, the Slix measure 155 x 58 x 28mm (WxHxD) - making it easy to slip into a pocket or bag. The 6W of power is delivered by two 1.5in full range drivers with accompanying passive bass radiator. 

The Slix speaker can be purchased as a double pack and allows users to benefit from a True Stereo Pairing mode. With this, two Slix speakers can be paired together to create a stereo sound.
