House Party

Compact Wireless Speaker System with Built-in Light Show


Transform Any Room into a Dance Club

House Party™ is the easiest way to create an instant dance party anywhere. This powerful and flexible all-in-one sound system will amplify almost anything—iPad, iPhone, iPod, Android® devices, microphones, and instruments.

Beat-Sync'd Lights and Booming Sound
House Party’s built-in lighting automatically bursts into action, pumping and pulsating in time with your music while changing colors and patterns. These dazzling and colorful light patterns are projected onto ceilings and walls, giving you an instant party atmosphere, while its powerful speaker fills the room with thumping bass and dance-club energy.

Convenient Wireless Connection
Plus, House Party’s wireless capability means you can keep your iPad, iPhone, or other Bluetooth® music-playing device right by your side as you blast your music. You can adjust volume, skip tracks, or even mix between tracks using popular DJ apps, all while you dance and stay where the action is. Plus, House Party also has an 1/8-inch input—to connect non-Bluetooth music players—and a microphone/instrument input, so you can connect guitars, keyboards, or a micorphone and really get the party started. 

Multiple Modes
House Party's lights can be set to Beat Mode or Party Mode. In Beat Mode, the lights swirl and pulsate in time with your music. In Party Mode, there are no rules! The lighting takes on a life of its own. The lights can also be turned off, so you can use House Party for music only.
