Ingress Protection (Ip) Rating

Turtlebox Gen 2 ip67
LG XBOOM 360 XO3 ip54

Ingress protection ratings refer to the level of protection offered by an electrical enclosure, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represent a number The first number of the IP rating refers to protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquid.

Having a value of IP67, the Turtlebox Gen 2's rating is read as, the first value of 6 denotes that they are completely dust proof, and the second number of 7 means that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.

Sound Quality

Has A Subwoofer

Turtlebox Gen 2
LG XBOOM 360 XO3

A subwoofer is a speaker that delivers lower frequencies in the range of 20 -200Hz, the low frequencies are produced by instruments such as pipe organs, bass guitars, even the kick drums, and any explosive sound effects say in a movie. Devices that have a subwoofer inbuilt give a richer bass sound when listening to bass-heavy music like hip hop.

Size Of Subwoofer

Turtlebox Gen 2 190.5mm
LG XBOOM 360 XO3

Bigger subwoofers are capable of producing deeper bass sounds. Turtlebox Gen 2 has a 190.5 mm subwoofer

Driver Unit Size

Turtlebox Gen 2 63.5mm
LG XBOOM 360 XO3

The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. Turtlebox Gen 2 driver unit is 63.5mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.

Drivers Count

Turtlebox Gen 2 1only
LG XBOOM 360 XO3

A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. Drivers come in different sizes and modes, but generally, you'll find three types: tweeter driver, which handles the high-frequency treble range (above 2,000 Hz), and midrange driver: which handles the midrange frequencies (200 Hz to 2,000 Hz). Woofer driver: handles the low-frequency bass range (below 200 Hz).

Based on the frequencies they handle more drivers may result in better sound quality, Turtlebox Gen 2 has 1 only.

Has A Passive Radiator

Turtlebox Gen 2
LG XBOOM 360 XO3

A passive radiator is a type of driver in speakers that can get extra power and resonance from a speaker system, usually used in smaller speaker systems. This radiator is called passive because it is not powered by electricity but by air pressure found in speaker cones.

The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep, resonant tones that would normally be produced by speakers in large boxes powered by AC.

The LG XBOOM 360 XO3 and Turtlebox Gen 2 both have a passive radiator

Snr - Signal To Noise Ratio

Turtlebox Gen 2 80db
LG XBOOM 360 XO3

The signal-to-noise ratio is a measure that compares the meaningful sound a speaker produces to the level of noise produced by internal components of that speaker, the higher the number the less perceived noise. Turtlebox Gen 2 has an audio signal level of 80 dB higher than the level of noise.

Audio Output Power

Turtlebox Gen 2 120w
LG XBOOM 360 XO3 50w

The audio output power of a device is based on the number of speakers and their power in watts Turtlebox Gen 2 has 120W, this is the amount of power the speakers can be loaded with "comfortably".

A higher audio output power results in louder, clearer sounds though this is not the sole factor determining the device's loudness. To get a better understanding of how loud any speaker can get, there are other aspects to look at such as sensitivity, sound pressure, etc.

LG XBOOM 360 XO3 has an audio output power of 50W
