The LD Systems Roadbuddy 10 is an elegant solution for voice and music transmission on the go. The 2-way speaker with a 10″ custom woofer and a 1″ compression driver is operated with a rechargeable battery for up to 8 hours and is powered by a class D power amplifier with a highly efficient switching power supply and 480 watts of peak power.

For wired devices, the Roadbuddy has two channels with combo jacks and individual volume controllers that are switchable for microphone and line level, a stereo input via RCA (Cinch) sockets (mono summed) and a 3.5 mm Aux input. Treble, Bass, Echo and Master volume controllers complete the control panel.

On the top, there is a handy storage compartment for up to two hand-held transmitter microphones. The plastic housing of this lightweight device has been designed to accommodate a 35 mm tripod mount.
