Is the EcoTrek waterproof & can the EcoTrek be used in water?
YES. The EcoTrek meets the IPX7 waterproof standard. The EcoTrek can be used in the pool, the hot tub and the ocean without issues. Batten down the hatches and play your tunes worry free! Plus, the EcoTrek floats! (Be careful, the charging caps and waterproof compartment must be closed properly to keep the EcoTrek watertight.)
What is IPX7?
The IPX7 Waterproof Standard means that the product is protected against water immersion. ECOXGEAR tests all their products by submerging them in AT LEAST 3 feet of water. This means that our products, including the EcoTrek can withstand use in the water. Be careful of other products that claim to be waterproof but are only IPX5 or less. They will leak and sink to the bottom of the pool under the fun conditions above.
Does the EcoTrek work with any Bluetooth enabled Device?
The EcoTrek waterproof speaker connects to any device that uses Bluetooth connectivity for audio. Laptops, Desktops, Tablets and Smartphones are all compatible! All Apple, Android, Blackberry and Windows devices are sure to be compatible.
How far can the EcoTrek be away from my Bluetooth device?
The connectivity for the EcoTrek is designed and tested to far exceed 30 feet (up to 100ft) from your Bluetooth device. Walls, leaded glass windows and metal studs inside the drywall will affect the range operation.
The sound is distorted, how can it be improved?

The MIC port on the EcoTrek is for use with dynamic microphones only (please check to ensure the microphone you are using is dynamic and not condenser type).

To adjust AM/FM reception, move entire product. To improve FM reception, do not use USB charging ports and unplug from AC power.
Water is draining from bottom of unit, should I be concerned?
Holes in the base of the EcoTrek speaker are designed to allow excess water run-off to drain away from the speaker. Water draining from this area is normal and safe.
Volume level is low when playing, how do I make it louder?
First, increase the volume on your device to maximum. Next increase the volume on the EcoTrek by pressing the Volume + button. If increasing the volume on the EcoTrek and / or increasing the volume on your Bluetooth device does not work, the EcoTrek may be in Power Save Mode.

How many watts is loud enough for a party?
If you’re going to start a raving party, you’ll want your speakers to be as loud as possible! Wattage, however, is not a good indicator of how loud the party speaker will be, it’s simply there to tell you how much power it can handle. For example, a 200W speaker could be as loud as a 500W one.

What should I look for when buying a party speaker?
A modern party speaker does more than just play music—they have a wide array of features to boot. Here’s what you need to look out for when buying one:
The speaker should be easy to carry around and strong and durable enough to be taken everywhere, like the beach.
Sound quality is extremely important for any speaker. The perfect party speaker should have crisp and clear audio, and be loud enough for a party of at least 50 people.
How can you check the quality of a speaker?
Check the sound quality
Play some music on the speaker and check how it handles the sounds of different instruments. A good quality speaker will let you hear small details that you never heard before in a song, like background instruments.
Crackly noises are a sign that the speaker is of poor quality.
Check the build quality
Give the speaker a light tap. If it sounds hollow, the audio quality, let alone the durability, might not be very good. A good speaker should feel solid.
Check the water/dustproof rating
Make sure the speaker has a water/dustproof rating of at least IP68.
How do I choose a party speaker?
Choosing the right party speaker depends on what you’re expecting from it and what you’ll be using it for. Here are a few questions you need to ask yourself:
- Where will I be taking it?
- What other features do I want aside from sound quality?
- Do I want to use it at home too?
- How long do I want to play music?
Once you’ve painted a picture of what you truly want, you’ll be on your way to picking out the ideal speaker
