Fender Wireless Speakers

Fender is a legendary name in the world of guitars and amplifiers, now the iconic company brings its audio expertise to wireless audio with two new Bluetooth speakers that look just like mini guitar amps. Borrowing classic design details from its line of legendary guitar amps, the speakers come in two models, the 120W Monterey ($349) with a quad-driver setup for room-filling sound, and the smaller more portable 30W Newport ($199) with crisp full range sound and a tri-driver setup. Both speakers have vintage designs inspired by the brandīs classic 68 Custom amplifiers, with the same retro grilles and labels, knobs, and buttons. They also come with AAC and aptX wireless audio codec support and are equipped with a pair of RCA jacks and a 3.5mm aux input for plugging in analog devices.
