Bluetooth 5.0 technology provides a fast, stable wireless connection up to 100' away. For more advanced control, download the free Thump Connect 2 app, which allows you to access five-band EQ, compressor, delay and reverb effects. XLR, TRS and RCA inputs, as well as a USB charge port, offer flexible connectivity options for a variety of applications.

Road-Ready Design
