Great sound, light weight, looks great.
Looses signal soon as someone stands near it and if it's inside a house.

    “The reception on this unit is nothing less than completely awful. Crackling constantly no dab indoors and terrible dab at best with distortion. Do dewalt ever do product testing? is there a fix to it? Ive tried the old method of putting some copper tube on it but it barely helps.”
    1. Adam replied on
      Must be faulty pal because mine works almost any where
