Rated 5 out of 5 by from HomeySteve's Review It is an all round great speaker, it has a lot to offer for the price point. I have done a lot of tests to see if it will distort and it won't seem to happen. It has been the best speaker that I have used in a while and it was worth it all.

My Jbl will not connect to my Samsung S8 Anyone have any advice/solution?

Asked by: Francois
Worked for mine, and I have the s8+, you just need to hit the bluetooth button on the stereo and turn on bluetooth on your phone, then you'll see "charge 3" and that's all.
