Speaker cab for modeling pedal?

    I've got a Vox Stomplab 1G that I use for headphone practice. I'd like to get something that I can take outside to practice with too, but don't want to wear headphones outside.

    The reviews of the little Vox Amplug cabinet sound like a toy AM radio. Are their any decent sounding battery powered cabs that I can plug the Stomplab into?

    I know their are battery powered amps that would do the trick, but I dont need all they offer. The amp sims on the Stomplab are pretty good sounding, at least through headphones.

    Search out a Bluetooth speaker for 'phones that also supports a cable input. Some of them are really rather good. Some are shonky as all get. Mine has no manufacturer marks on it, but is called a Model BE-10. Stereo, 5-6 hours battery life per charge and for close quarter listening, really good. Capable of going quite loud.

    Just came across the Marshall Killburn. That thing looks about perfect!

    Like usual though, I just wasn't planning to spend that much.

    Found the Samson Escape for $99. Rechargeable battery and 1/4" line level input. Can't find any sound clips though. Anyone ever try one?

    I had an atomic amplifire 12 which sounded great through headphones but it sounded bad with some bose speaker I have.

    I would recommend to try your stomplab with the speaker before buying.

    Do you have a portable stereo with an AUX input?
    How about an unused set of powered speakers from the computer.

    Of course.... $10 junk will sound like $10 junk, but if you have something decent laying around - put it to work. I have an old set of Yamaha computer speakers I wouldn't hesitate to hook up to my modelers for low volume usage.

    The little Roland battery amp, 2 watts, good sounding effects, pretty decent tone, loud enough to practice outdoors or can use headphones for room.
