Kicker Bullfrog® BF100 Music System
Waterproof portable Bluetooth® speaker (Green)
Our take on the Kicker Bullfrog® BF100 Music System by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Portable and powerful
When I tried out the Kicker Bullfrog BF100 I was impressed by two things — its compact size and its outsized sound. This portable Bluetooth speaker is about the size of a quart container of milk. The tough BF100 is both water- and dust-proof. It's great for outdoor adventures.
The BF100 features two 1-5/8" full-range speakers with two 2/58" passive radiators for enhanced bass. One speaker/radiator pair faces front, and the other faces rear, generating a 360° soundfield. No matter where I was in the yard, the speaker sounded great.
The BF100's casing has an IP67 rating, meaning it's waterproof and dust-proof. In fact, it's designed to float on the water's surface. So enjoy your tunes at the beach, on the slopes, or by the pool worry-free. And if your BF100 gets splattered with dirt or mud, you can just hose it off.
Kicker Connect App
Download Kicker's free control app to your Apple® or Android™ device and really take control of your BF100. With it, you can remotely adjust volume and EQ settings or even pair two Bullfrog speakers for two-channel stereo.
Music all day or all night
The speaker's built-in rechargeable battery gives you up to 12 hours of portable operation. The BF100 comes with its own USB charging cable. Just plug it into a computer or a spare AC/USB adapter.

Features and Specs
|NFC Touch Pairing||No|
360 Degree Sound: The Kicker Bullfrog BF100's unique driver design gives you speakers on both sides of the unit for 360 degree sound. There is one round 1.4" full-range driver and one oval 1.4" x 2.8" passive radiator on each side of the speaker. The two 1.4" full-range drivers are powered by a built-in 16-watt amplifier.
Water & Dust Resistant (IP67 Rated): Its IP67-rating means the Kicker Bullfrog BF100 offers complete protection against dust and power water spray on all sides. So you can feel confident when taking this speaker system to the pool, beach or camping. The rubber cap that covers the Aux and USB ports needs to be installed for the speaker's IP67-rating.
Note: Even though the Kicker Bullfrog BF100 is water & dust resistant, it cannot be fully immersed in water (this will cause permanent damage to the speaker).
Bluetooth Audio Streaming & Hands-Free Speakerphone: The Kicker Bullfrog BF100 offers built-in Bluetooth with support for wireless audio streaming (A2DP/AVRCP) and hands-free phone communication (HFP). You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music and music apps from your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer to the speaker system with basic playback control (such as Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track). You'll also be able to easily answer and make phone calls with the BF100's built-in speakerphone, so you're never out of touch.
- 100' Wireless Range: The Kicker Bullfrog BF100 system combines Bluetooth with its own proprietary wireless technology for an amazing 100' wireless Bluetooth range.
- Multi-Device Pairing & Auto-Connect: You can pair the Bullfrog BF100 with up to 5 Bluetooth devices, but only one can be connected at a time for playback and hands-free communication. It will automatically reconnect with the an already paired device when it comes within range.
Kicker Connect App: The Kicker Connect App (for Apple iOS 8.0+ & Android OS 4.3+) lets you select from 5 EQ presets (Kicker / Outdoor / Voice / Treble / Flat), create & select FM presets, control volume, and check battery level right from your compatible smartphone or tablet.
DoubleKick Connect: Using the Kicker Connect App, you can join two Bullfrog BF100 speakers together wirelessly for twice as much sound. This feature is called "DoubleKick Connect". The wireless range between speakers is 30'.
Aux Input: The Kicker Bullfrog BF100 features a side-panel 3.5mm Aux input for connection of practically any portable audio source with an analog output or headphone jack.
USB Charging Port: A side-panel USB (type-A) charging port will charge your connected smartphone, tablet, or portable digital audio player. The USB port is rated at 5V/2.1A.
Side-Panel Controls: The side-panel push-button controls consist of Power On/Off, Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, Source (Bluetooth/Aux), Pair, and Volume Up/Down.
Rechargeable Battery: The built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery (7.26V/2600mAh) provides up to 12 hours of music playback. It takes 2.5 hours to full recharge the battery using an optional AC/USB power adapter (sold separately). Five top-panel LEDs indicate battery power level.
Auto Turn-Off: If no audio signal is detected for approximately 5 minutes, the Bullfrog BF100 system will automatically turn off (in Bluetooth or Aux mode).
1/4"-20 Threaded Insert: There is a 1/4"-20 threaded insert located on the bottom of the speaker which allows you to mount the Bullfrog BF100 on top of a tripod stand.
