Outbound Reviewed: The All-Weather Speaker with a Kick, The Bullfrog Kicker 200

The Kicker Bullfrog 200 is a Bluetooth speaker designed for listening, no matter the weather.

If you’re looking for a portable, outdoor-proof speaker that delivers a punch, the Kicker series is for you. I recently took the BF 200 on a road trip up California's Central Coast to put it through its paces.

An all-weather Bluetooth speaker designed for listening no matter the conditions, The Kicker Bullfrog 200's IP66 weatherproof rating makes it completely dustproof and waterproof. Rain or shine, this guarantees you will have beats for whatever you want to do.

Connect your phone via Bluetooth, an auxiliary cable, or via USB. If you can’t decide what you want to listen to, listen to the FM radio. Rubberized buttons let you pair your phone, change the volume, switch tracks, and switch input. A handle lets you carry this like a kid carrying her lunch to school.

The Kicker Bullfrog 200 features a 360 degree design. Unlike regular speakers designed to only play sound out of one side, this allows you to hear what you’re listening to, no matter what side of the picnic blanket you’re on.

Bass heavy tracks will heartily boom out of this speaker. It’s like you just got your first car and you cranked the bass up high cause it’s the cool thing to do. Whatever kind of sound you're looking for, you are able to tweak the listening experience with the Kicker Connect App.

For the surround sound experience, play two speakers at once by connecting to the Kicker Connect App. The app allows more flexibility over what you’re hearing with a five band equalizer. If you’re someone who still listens to the radio, use the app to program six FM presets.

The Kicker Bullfrog 200 is a bomber, weatherproof speaker that does not disappoint.
