STAMFORD, CT – – November 16, 2020 – Today, HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated (NYSE: HAR), the premier connected technologies company for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets, announced JBL BassPro Go. A hybrid automobile subwoofer and portable speaker, this versatile speaker system connects music enthusiasts to JBL’s Signature Sound for an exceptional audio experience on-the-go.

When docked inside the vehicle’s trunk, the JBL BassPro Go adds powerful bass to the existing car audio system, delivering sound performance equivalent to a traditional aftermarket subwoofer system.  Engineered with a subwoofer and two passive radiators, the sub system allows users enhance the bass response to their listening preferences.

The JBL BassPro Go also operates as a portable Bluetooth speaker when undocked from the vehicle. The speaker is designed to deliver big concert sound to outlast any tailgate or party with its 8 hours of play time. Users can connect up to 3 mobile devices and take turns playing DJ when it’s detached from the mount. The JBL BassPro Go also features JBL Connect technology that can wirelessly link two BassPro Go speakers together to amplify the listening experience.

The speaker’s sleek, iconic design integrates with any vehicle’s interior while delivering superior sound. In addition, the water resistant covering lets users embrace an on-the-go lifestyle without worrying about rain or spills. Built for versatility, the system is easy to dock or undock with no tools required and has the ability to charge devices via USB so users are always connected.

“The JBL BassPro Go is the first of its kind and will set a new standard in the Aftermarket industry,” said Shawn Spedding, Director of Sales, Mobile Audio Aftermarket at HARMAN. “With its dual functionalities, consumers get a quality subwoofer system to enhance their in-car audio system with the added convenience of doubling as an exceptional portable speaker, ready for outside use.”
