Sonic Impact has quietly begun to ship its i-F5 portable speaker system for iPod. The i-F5 is a black zip-closed system featuring a built-in iPod dock, two 1.5” drivers and two 1.5” passive radiators, Maxxbass for improved bass performance, auxiliary input, rechargeable Ni-H batteries offering 8 hours of playback, and an included remote control. Unlike many other speaker systems, i-F5 trims back its power consumption and maximum power when it’s running off of batteries, dropping from 4 Watts down to 3 Watts for extended run time. The i-F5 is currently available online from Dr. Bott and sells for $150.
