Our speakers play music at volumes that will fill a large apartment or your bedroom. They are great for outdoor use, like backyard BBQs and beach days. People are always surprised at how loud our speakers are!
Trash Amps are SMART: they automatically turn on when music plays, and fall asleep after 30 seconds of silence. Alternatively, if you unplug the Trash Amp from your device, it automatically turns off. This really prolongs your battery life – you can’t forget to turn this speaker off and waste the batteries.
Trash Amp is a legit guitar amplifier! We’ve seen Trash Amps used with electric guitars, electric ukuleles and keyboards. Use a ¼” adapter to plug into any standard instrument output. Don’t forget to request a Free Guitar Adapter.
Yes, each speaker includes one 3.5mm cord that can plug into any device with a headphone port.
Select speakers have both INPUT and OUTPUT, so you can connect Trash Amps together for bigger sound! Just plug the first unit into your device, and plug subsequent Trash Amps into the previous unit’s auxiliary jack. This lets you get even louder volumes for both MP3 and electric guitar use!
True stereo sound can be achieved using a stereo splitter between the audio source and the two Trash Amps. You can pick one up at your local electronics store. In normal operation, Trash Amps internally mix the left and right audio signals together for a full-bodied sound experience.
No, it’s impossible to blow out the speaker! Our 2.4W amplfiier cannot overpower the 2″ full range driver because the speaker is capable of handling up to 5W RMS. So turn it up all you want!
Without the can or jar around the speaker, the speaker loses its great sound, especially the bass. The can / jar creates a sealed speaker cavity for full range audio.
We design and build our speakers in Santa Clara, California with an intense attention to detail, so you end up with a great product!
In September 2010, we filed a utility patent application for the Trash Amps Speaker. In January 2013, this patent was officially granted. Now we’ve got some protection! Look for “Patent Pending” or Patent No. on the product when you get it!
Yes, please visit our Wholesale page.
Great idea! We are currently researching solar panels for our speakers and hope to offer this option in the future.
All of our speakers currently use a cord. In the future, we hope to release a Bluetooth Trash Amp Speaker, so stay tuned!
