Yorkville EXM-12 Battery Speaker Sound Quality

The Yorkville EXM-12 is by no means the best speaker on the market for music playback. It will work if you’re in the middle of nowhere and you want music without a power source. However, if you want to produce a full-sounding DJ set, this is not the speaker for you.

If sound quality is your primary objective, we recommend a setup with a generator and higher-quality powered speakers. The EXM-12 is designed for power efficiency, compromising on low-end frequency response to reduce power consumption.
