QFX PBX-61080BT Review 2019
- Finalist for Best Bluetooth Speaker 2019
Portable Bluetooth speakers have surged to popularity since they allow you to take your music anywhere without having to mess around with a bunch of wires. Small, portable Bluetooth speakers are convenient to use and you may already have one yourself. Many of them can produce a decently loud sound. For some people, however, the sound just is not big enough.
If you are looking for bigger sound than a small Bluetooth speaker can provide, you should look into getting a big Bluetooth speaker. Big Bluetooth speakers are excellent for entertaining at parties. There are quite a few options out there but in this article we will discuss the QFX PBX-61080BT Bluetooth Portable Tailgate Speaker.
QFX has 30 years of experience when it comes to the field of electronics. They continue to manufacture products with innovative designs to satisfy all your entertainment needs. They have a wide variety of products to choose from. Whether you are looking for speakers for a college dorm party or for your family home, QFX will have what you need.
What Makes A Good Big Bluetooth Speaker?
If you are on the market for a big Bluetooth speaker, it is likely because you are looking for a bigger sound. Any good, large Bluetooth speaker should produce a big sound-enough to fill a good sized area. They are often used for parties so you want to make sure it will be loud enough to get the party going- not be a party killer.
As far as sound goes, it should produce clear highs as well as a satisfying, deep bass. Even at high volumes, the music will sound clear with little distortion.
Although the speaker will be big, it needs to also be easily portable. If it is on the heavier side, wheels and a handle are great for easy portability.
Since most Bluetooth speakers are wireless, a long battery life is a must. A good Bluetooth speaker will give you several hours of listening time.
QFX PBX-61080BT Product Overview
The PBX-61080BT Bluetooth speaker measures 13 inches by 12.4 inches by 19 inches and weighs in at 15.4 pounds. It is certainly a big Bluetooth speaker. It features an 8-inch woofer protected by a metal grille.
The volume, treble, and bass controls allow you to fine-tune your music.
You can easily connect your device via Bluetooth or alternatively you can use the built-in FM radio, insert an SD card, or plug in a USB to play music. It also has an AUX port to connect non-Bluetooth devices.

QFX PBX-61080BT Pros and Cons
Users are happy that it gets very loud with little distortion. With such a variety of inputs as well as a built-in radio, you can listen to your music in a number of ways. The battery life is good and will last you through any tailgate party. The wheels are a big plus since you can easily wheel it around. It has a sturdy feel but is not too heavy.
The most common complaint about this speaker is that it doesn’t produce that deep, powerful bass that many love. For the price, it should perform better in this area. Users also complain that it does not have a wide connectivity range when using Bluetooth. Some have experienced a constant buzzing sound when connected via Bluetooth.
The Sylvania SP328 is also a pretty good Bluetooth speaker for a better price. It doesn’t have as many features as the QFX speaker but it is a great buy.
This big Bluetooth speaker gets very loud which is a good reason to buy it. It also has some features that its biggest competitor does not have such as inputs for a USB and SD card. If a powerful bass is not important to you, this is a good option to consider. Since the bass is lacking, however, you can find cheaper options that perform almost just as good.
