Fender’s stringed instruments and amplifiers are the go-to items of many musicians. The brand is expended their product lines to other audio and lifestyle items, bringing the essence of the brand to a larger pool of customers. We are talking about the two recently released Bluetooth speakers, Monterey Tweed and Indio.
Fender tweed amplifier was first made in 1948 and has become the signature look for vintage 1950s Fender amps. The cloth covering, leather handle, red power lamp and the volume knobs have now been migrated onto the Monterey Tweed speaker, although the overall size is much smaller. In the speaker there are two 5.12-inch woofers and two 1-inch tweeters with a total output of 120 watts. In addition to aptX and AAC Bluetooth paring with different kinds of devices, the audio can also be connected via the 3.5 mm jack or the standard RCA inputs.
The Indio speaker is lighter and smaller than the Monterey Tweed, and is good for portable use with a maximum playing time of 24 hours for each charge. Indio is tailor made for smartphone pairing and features playback buttons, built-in microphone for support hand-free voice call and even a button for Siri / Google Assistant. Inside the speaker are two 3.5-inch woofers and two 0.63-inch tweeters for a 40 watts output. The Duo function allows pairing of two Indio speakers for stereo sound.
