Louder Than You Think.
A large portable speaker was never practical for me, but smaller speakers usually aren't loud enough. This Bluetooth speaker changed that. Compact, easily carried in a toolbox, while also being LOUD. I've dropped this thing off ladders, bench tops, and even a roof, and it still works perfectly. This speaker uses the 20v batteries so music is never interrupted for charging. If a battery isn't available, it comes with a standard wall plug as well. The portability, volume, durability and using the same batteries as all my other tools earns this speaker a perfect 10/10.

Great for working on the go
Had it for a few months, overall very pleased with the purchase. Only issue whatsoever is that it could be louder. Quality product and good sound as expected from dewalt.

Overall a good buy
I bought this product several months ago and have used it many times over the course of the months since I bought this product. I overall love the product it charges my phone well and using a 20 V larger hour amp battery in it last several days. I personally wish it was a little louder and with this product, and a couple others I wish you could charge the battery why the speaker was plugged in. Overall though I am very happy with this product.

only drawback
I'm very pleased with the single speaker, but when I tried to link/sync two wireless Bluetooth speakers to my android it was no-go. The Android only pairs to one speaker at a time. Don't know if an iPhone would connect to multiple speakers simultaneously or not

A must Have!
This is the one DeWalt product that comes out and gets used BEFORE any other tool.

I’m pretty sure my neighbors hate me because when I’m outside working, I’m using this speaker to blast my extremely diverse playlist.

It sounds great and uses very little power. I was using it 10-12 hours a day for several days on a 3ah battery before needing to charge the battery again.

I just plug my phone in to keep the phone charged and enjoy the tunes and my DeWalt tools.

Awesome speaker
The sound on this little speaker is amazing! It has great futures and are super easy to operate. It's super tough, mine has taken a few drops and kicks and just keep going. Small and handy, doesn't take up any space and packs around great. Definitely recommend it.

Doesn't run on 12VDC
Just tried to run this on the included 12VDC power adapter but it didn't work. Runs fine on a battery. 119VAC at the wall, 11.8VDC from the adapter. Maybe I got a bad one. I guess this will cost me another trip back to the store to return it. Disappointed.

Little speaker with a punch!
My wife bought this for my for Father's Day and I've been using it since. I like the fact you can charge your phone while listening to music, along with the Bluetooth option. I enjoy using this while working in the garage or out in the yard. The price was around $70 at Lowes before my 10% military discount. I would definitely recommend this DeWalt product.

DeWalt tough for sure.
I recieved this as a gift going on 4 years now.
The only trouble i have had with it thus far is i can no longer run it off of the batteries due to it draining the batteries beyond the charge.
Now the pros:
I have dropped this off a 2 story roff numerous times, operated during a thunderstorm, and aside from it being covered in sawdust there are no visible defects.
The volume is definitely not an issue on mine, as i have stated i used it in the thunderstorm, i can hear it just fine 100 yards away (possibly further, i haven't gone that far yet
Oh and it has been dropped in the river while fishing ( don't recommend any of these experiences)
I honestly expect it to last another 10-15 years just because it is yellow and black and says DeWalt :)

How do I change stations. ?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Changing stations is not an option as this is not a radio. This is a Bluetooth speaker. If the device you are using to send the speaker a signal has a radio station or podcast app, you can stream that audio to the speaker and then you have a channel changing option. Ill bet most use the DCR006 just like I do: I use a music service/app like Spotify, Deezer, Pandora or Napster to store a large volume of music on my iPhone or iPod. Then I connect/pair the iPhone/Pod to the speaker (Settings-Bluetooth menu) via Bluetooth wireless technology. I power the speaker with a Dewalt 12/20V battery or I plug it into a wall outlet. I navigate to the music I want to hear and it plays through the speaker. It is a very excellent speaker given the size and a 2 amp 20 V battery will last for more than a day. I put my phone in my pocket and as long as I am with in about 120 feet of the speaker the wireless connection is maintained. I admit to being initially skeptical because of its small size and inexpensive price. But I am totally impressed. Great sound and it works with my DeWalt 12/20V batteries if 110V is not available. Again, this is a Bluetooth speaker with multiple power options to make it run. It is not a radio or battery charger. BIG home run for DeWalt!!
