I really like the JVC Kaboom.
Pros; Fabulous sound, easy to use and you can shake the house apart with it if you so desire. Great for outdoor partys, sounds great even with loud ambient noise. Overall I'm happy with it and would recommend it.
Cons; Heavier than I expected and it takes 10 D cells heavier yet. For the money you'd think they would've put a top handle on it as well as a shoulder strap. The carry handles are on the sides and they don't recommend carrying it by only one handle so its a two hand job.

Sounds great. Bass is incredible for the size of the unit. My guitar sounds great through it also; it's perfect for a practice amp. I like the fact that the sub woofer control is separate from the volume making it possible for the perfect sound mix at any volume. It has an audio in mini jack in the rear also for patching in a computer, MP3 player etc. I use the iPod dock also, which works well. The remote even controls the play/pause and skip features for the iPod when it's docked. These units are hard to find in stores but are worth the money if you're worried about not hearing if before ordering online.

JVC Kaboom July 18 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Nice boom box, very satisfied with unit. Sound quality may not be perfect, but good enough and lots of bass with the sub-woofer. I'm not familiar with the original Kaboom so I can't compare the old vs the new. I wanted all the input options, USB, MP3 CD's, Itouch, etc. Mostly, I wanted a line-in so that meant I had to get the RV-NB70 instead of the NB50 model. The guitar/mic input may get used for karaoke some day. The strap included is awkward to use, mostly due the size of the unit. I decided to get a duffel bag for it and padded the inside. That way I have a pocket for all the accessories. I haven't found a way to play material in a random fashion from the USB or CD yet, not sure if a way to do that exists. It would be nice if it could.
The only problem I've had is that I could NOT find a car cord for this Kaboom! The CA-R150 cord can't be found anywhere. Called JVC customer service and was told nothing exists in the catalog for a dc-in cable. So I went searching for something to use. I found the plug here.
[...] Great Amazon deletes URL's Why? So it was supposed to say cordsplus . com Anyways search for the Philmore 255 plug
3.3mm x 5.5mm Power Plug With 1mm Center Pin Philmore 255 Part #1783 $8.39

Then I wanted to be able to clamp on to a battery and have some versatility so I used banana jacks on the other end. This way I can use a cigarette lighter converter like this: [...] ( This was a RadioShack Enercell(tm) Vehicle Adapter Plug w/ Banana Jacks Catalog #: 270-036) or switch to use a terminal clamp to attach to a battery.

Great System! Aug. 28 2011
By Aaron Schrader - Published on Amazon.com

Just ordered this Kaboom for my wife, she's a cheer coach and needed something that will not distort at louder volume and can fill large areas for practices, like a gym. She hasn't used it yet in the gym, but set up at home was a pretty impressive experience. This thing is loud.

Positives:
1. Docks & Charges iPhone, iPods. Music plays right through it and with the remote you can control FF and REW within a song. Only functions for controlling iPhone/iPod on the actual boombox are play/pause. So don't lose the remote!
2. Loud! Bass knob on left, volume on right. Large, easy to turn knobs with numbers of volume on blue LCD screen. Subwoofers on ends are protected by metal screens. I'm not an audiophile, so to me this thing sounds pretty good.
3. Smart doors! CD door and iPhone/iPod dock door have a nifty little twist to open feature. I've had portables before that all you have to do is push to open, so consequently any time you bump the doors they open. Not the case here, I like their set up.
4. This has an auxilary/line in, in addition to a 1/4" guitar jack. I'm not sure why JVC wouldn't advertise the Aux In, as people care more about that now days. There's one on there!
5. Easy layout- buttons on the front are there, big enough, simple to use.
6. Not too heavy.

Negatives:
1. There are some features that can only be accessed through the remote, so don't lose it. Which brings me to #2-
2. No remote dock! Portable stereo? Yes. Big in size? Yes. So why not slim the remote down a little and make a docking slot for it on the unit so I don't have to put on sticky velcro and ghetto it up.
3. Price- For this price (paid $270) it performs, but is missing some of these important features listed, lending a four star rating over five.
4. NO FREAKING CORD WRAP! Come on! I couldn't believe that a portable system, with a SHOULDER STRAP for crying out loud, would not have some kind of power cord wrap on it. Give me a break. Especially at this price, it's a major oversight. This combined with a missing remote dock/storage option is enough to make me want to give it 3 stars.
5. Not a huge fan of the plastics used. Here's what I'd love- tough trash can type plastic for the body with rubber ends. Again, at this price, I think it's something JVC missed. I feel like they are capitalizing on it being a guitar amp and charging more for that (in my opinion, irrelevant) feature.

Would I buy it again? Yes. Price is too high though, and if the price were to stay there then it needs some more very PRACTICAL features on it. But it works- does the job and plays music how it is supposed to: LOUD.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!!! March 21 2012
By murray conerby - Published on Amazon.com

first off let me say, the sound of this thing is like a full on component stereo system, it is INSANE!!
I was looking at stereo recievers that have usb ports, they are hard to find and very expensive, so i
started looking at "all in one" boombox type systems. that is when i came across this baby, complete usb,ipod,
cd,fm, and it looks mean and bad ass!!! i am a heavy metal/classic rock guy and playing tool on this system
is f'ing incredible, sabbath sounds awesome!!! the bass is so good you will not believe it, and there is
a seperate volume control just for the bass. you get an awesome remote. the one thing that i wish was
different is that when you turn it on and it is on usb, you have to turn it to "random" that's another word
for "shuffle" each and every time you turn it on, when you turn the system off the "random" turns off and when
you turn it back on you must hit random again, it's not a big deal you just use the remote and it takes like
2 seconds, but it would just be nice if it just stayed on random. that's my only complaint and it's not a big one,
as for carrying this around town ect..., i have no comment, mine is place in a stationary position and will probably
never move from it's spot.

Cannot like this Boombox enough Aug. 26 2012
By Joseph D. Lanzendorfer - Published on Amazon.com

First of all, this thing is LOUD. I'm amazed at how much this thing can rock my house with 10 D-cell batteries, and how incredibly long those D-cell batteries can last. Separate knobs for volume and bass control is an awesome, and the side-firing sub-woofers put out great bass. I love taking this thing to parties. There is one plug for a microphone or guitar and there's a switch between the two, so it's easy to use as an amp, a megaphone, or a karaoke machine. You can control the mic/guitar volume separately from the main volume, so it's easy to control how much of your voice is mixed in with the music. The shoulder strap makes it easy to carry. The USB port on the front will read media off a thumb drive or search the internal storage on a device like a phone, and can also be used to charge devices, like phones. I connect my phone to the USB but connect the headphone jack to the audio input so I have full control over what I want to listen to while charging my phone. It makes an awesome Pandora setup. CD-player up top just in case, good antenna, programmable radio stations, AC and DC power inputs (but only comes with AC power cable), sealable iPod dock protects your iPod/iPhone, remote control, equalizer presets, headphone jack, and a video output for iPod/iPhone videos.

Overall it's just a really well engineered piece of equipment. JVC left no stone unturned. It does pretty much everything I could ever want it to do and more. It's just so versatile it makes it perfect for parties, flash mobs, chilling out, whatever. It makes me wish boom boxes never went out of style because it's just so awesome. Definitely my favorite toy.

One tiny little problem I should note. It is not hot-swappable between AC power and battery power. It turns itself of when you switch from one to the other. Other than that, no complaints here.

Awsome! Sept. 22 2011

Bought this to play the ipod in the back yard. It works GREAT!! Super sound and well built. As a side note, I used this in a wedding ceremony that had no access to a PA system. Bought a 25.00 mic and was able to be heard by about 100 people very clearly
