For Bass
Silvers, 01.10.2020
From a bass player comparing the Bose S1 the MBA1... the MBA1 handles bass better. Still its easy to overdrive the speaker if not careful. Same can be said for the Bose though. At a comparative volume level though the MBA1 has a deeper cleaner tone for bass.
A normal acoustic guitar I would use the Bose....bass I would use the MBA1.
Would be nice to see more of these kind of battery cabs dedicated to bass though.... and not just for guitar

cute.
Peter R. 438, 23.11.2020
Plenty powerful enough for gigs in small and busy bars.
A bit "boomy" if not restrained by the eq, but trebble too can be overwhelming if not eq'd. Once eq'd, crank it up and rock out.
The echoe, or reverb, or what ever its called is a bit overwhelming too if not restrained by the controll knob. Not the best, but I never use it, so no problem for me.
Very light and sizewise, its a great package.
I really like this little beast,, but used on a stand at abou7t1-3/4 mtrs high, it punches out some real clean sound.
I reccomend it to solo performers. Very quick charge batteries easy last a full gig for anyone.
A little downer is the white noise in quiessance, but never heard in the venue, so absolutely no problem whatsoever.
Fast delivery and 30 days to return it if not happy with it.
We cannot go wrong.

MBA1
G J Pistorius , 19.09.2020
Nice product, especially if you use it for travel and acoustic guitar or bluetooth music.
I Bought it to use with my Mooer GE300 or Hotone Ampero but with both units it just sounds flat. The distortion sounds lack depth and sound overall thin.
The unit itself is a really good build and everything feels solid.
If you are in for a busking amp that does it al and is really handy this might just be the best pick. There is definitely no better quality to cost ratio speaker around.

Überwiegend positive aber auch etwas gemischte Erfahrung
GeZe, 28.04.2021
Dieses Gerät habe ich für die Beschallung einer Gruppe von ca. 25 Sportlern beim Fitnesstraining beschafft. Weil wegen Corona die Gymnastikstunde aus der Halle ins Freie verlegt werden musste, war ein Lautsprecher mit Batteriebetrieb notwendig, der nicht zu schmalbrüstig sein durfte.
Dieser Lautsprecher entspricht fast meinen Bedürfnissen. Er bietet für seine Größe und die Art der Powerversorgung einen erstaunlich druckvollen Klang. Alles funktioniert genau so, wie es in der ausführlichen Beschreibung des Angebots von Thomann (einschließlich der nachlesbaren Testberichte) ausgeführt ist. Auf eine ausführliche Beschreibung der Funktionen, die fast alle erwartungsgemäß und zur vollen Zufriedenheit funktionieren, verzichte ich deshalb.
Weil an anderen Stellen nachlesbar, hatte ich vor dem Kauf Bedenken wegen des weißen Rauschens, das der Lautsprecher produziert. Ich muss sagen: ja, es ist da, ich kann aber sagen: dass das Rauschen so leise und kaum hörbar ist, dass es nicht als störend empfunden wird. Eine Hi-Fi-Box hätte ich auch nicht erwartet.
Hervorheben möchte ich die wirklich kompakte Bauform. Sie ist nicht nur angenehm bei der Aufbewahrung und dem Transport der Box (eine Trolley-Funktion braucht es bei dem Gewicht von 8 ½ kg wirklich nicht), sie führt in Verbindung mit dem robusten und ergonomisch ideal geformten und genau über dem Schwerpunkt angebrachten Tragegriff auch zu einem angenehm guten Gefühl beim Handling des Gerätes.

Warum sagte ich vorstehend „fast“? Die Bluetooth-Funktion nervt ein bisschen! Am Procedere des Pairings und an der Stabilität der Verbindung über eine übliche Distanz gibt es nichts auszusetzen. Es bleibt aber ein Geheimnis der Konstrukteure, warum sich das Signal bei der Pause zwischen zwei Stücken „schlafen legt“. Das führt dazu, dass es beim „Aufwachen“ zu Beginn des nächsten Tracks zu einem kleinen aber nervigen Aussetzer kommt. Bei Musik fehlt der Auftakt und bei Sprache wird die erste Silbe verschluckt. Praktischerweise hat die Box eine USB-Buchse, die einen externen Bluetooth Musik-Receiver in USB-Stick-Bauform mit 5 Volt Spannung versorgen kann um dann das Signal über den 3,5 mm Miniklinke AUX Eingang einzuspeisen. Dieses 5,- € China-Teil hat solche Aussetzer nicht.

Einen Verpackungskarton wirf man weg – oder man (wie ich) hebt ihn auf, um Abfall zu vermeiden und um das Gerät bei Lagerung und Transport zu schützen. Die genau der Gehäuseform des Lautsprecher angepassten Styroporeinlagen legen das Nahe. Leider haben die Lageristen von Thomann es fertig gebracht, bei Verschließen der Umverpackung riesig große Klammern bis in den inneren Karton zu schießen. Diese Beschädigung schränkt die Weiterverwendung leider ein. Vielleicht will man auf diese Weise den Absatz der als Zubehör angebotenen Tasche oder des Koffers forcieren.
