Everyone’s making Bluetooth speakers these days, so it seems Sondpex figured just making a portable PA system for live and recorded music wasn’t enough; instead they would make a portable PA system and attach a 40-quart cooler to it to stand out from the crowd. Will Smith isn’t really doing music anymore, but I wonder if this would be the Fresh Prince’s new definition of summer madness.

That said, it’s hard to gaze at this blue plastic beauty and not envision the perfect Independence Day beach-blanket singalong, with bottle ’n’ cans and clapping hands. The KoolMax holds 48 cans or 28 12oz. bottles, and with both quarter-inch instrument and XLR mic inputs for the 350W maximum PA output, it could be perfect for a singer/songwriter who wants to get buzzed while busking, or for adding a live-music flavor to your cookout or camping trip.

It also plays music from a built-in FM radio receiver, or audio input from a wireless Bluetooth device up to 30 feet away, an SD Card, a USB input port or a minijack audio input. Either the rechargeable lithium-ion battery or an included AC adapter powers the KoolMax’s two main speakers and two additional tweeters, and it also provides USB device charging.

With wheels and a telescoping handle, the KoolMax is yours for just $359 to haul off to your next blues & brews outdoor gathering.
