I'm looking for the most powerful portable speakers for around 300. So far, I have seen the Bose SoundLink and the Jawbone BIG JAMBOX.

Obviously they have to sound fine at maximum power.

Now, I usually can find better products for Bose's money, but apparently not this time.

Any ideas, comments or recommendations?

That looks really nice. But I'm looking for something much more portable. Something you can have on a backpack.

For example, to take it to the beach, to a camping, etc.

But I would get that probably to wake up my neighbors.

I would probably look at powered speakers that run off of 12 volts, and carry a stout lithium ion battery to power them. Many of the alternatives would be easy to backpack.

I don't know what you consider to be appropriate in terms of size, weight or SQ; what your duty cycle would be, but this approach provides you with a ton of options.

For example this battery weighs about a pound and puts out 15 amp-hours of 12 volts:

12 volt 15 Amp-hour battery, 500 grams and $80

I've used smaller versions of batteries like this to extend the useful operational times for cell phones, pad computers, and portable music players. This is a working approach!

Depending on how loud you turn them up, the battery above could keep some nice computer speakers going for a while.
