Review: The FoxLv2 Personal Professional Loudspeaker – This is Rocket
by Bruce Owens on July 15, 2012
I recently was shipped the foxLv2 Personal Professional Loudspeaker for
review. My first impression upon seeing this unit was “ok it is small and
compact, cute – but how does this sound”. I imagined the foxLv2 would sound
like a quality computer speaker and nothing more. I could not have been more
wrong. This little powerhouse is a mere 5.6 x 2.2 x 1.4 inches and kicks out
4 watts of power. This is a very efficient 4 watts because the foxLv2 easily
fills a room with music. The tiny unit has two “Twoofers” that produce
crystal highs and realistic thumping bass.
The first test I put the foxLv2 through was using it with my Motorola Droid
4. The Droid and the foxLv2 found each outer via Bluetooth with no effort on
my part. I simply needed to push play on my music library and I was in
business. Even with the phone 10 to 20 feet way from the foxLv2 the music
was clear and loud. In wondering how the foxLv2 would perform with other
audio apps on the phone I fired up the mobile Netflix app. This is amazing I
am getting home theater quality audio and HD video from two devices that fit
in my pocket.
The foxLv2 gives the user 8 hours of house rocking Bluetooth performance,
with an audio cable I found myself getting 2+ days of use in the office with
my old school iPod nano. If you want to shake the house loose from its
foundation the FoxL has an output to connect a sub-woofer.
What initially drew me to this device was how Guns N’ Roses Guitarist
Richard Fortus and shred guitar goddess The Great Kat were using the foxLv2
as a portable guitar amp. I plugged my Gibson Les Paul Traditional through
the foxLv2 via my Vox Amplug Metal headphone amp. The tone and response was
as if I was playing through a Marshall JCM 800 stack. The sound is loud and
powerful with beautiful harmonics and perfect articulation. The fun part of
this is I am able to place the foxLv2 in my pocket and stroll around my
backyard shreding away. This is a great practice amp option that fits neatly
in my gigbag and gives me total freedom from AC power.
This is a best of breed gadget for the musician, audiophile, or movie fan
that wants quality audio at home or on the run. The FoxL even comes with a
built in noice-canceling microphone for the business user for wireless
If you are reading this saying to yourself this is not rocket science the
foxLv2 is just another portable speaker keep this in mind. Soundmatters
