Fender Debuts its Newport 2 Portable Bluetooth Speakers

While traditionally known for its guitars, Fender introduced its first “Monterey” and “Newport” Bluetooth speaker models in 2017, inspired by the ’60s Newport and Monterey Pop festivals.

The Newport’s design is inspired by Fender’s iconic “Silverface” guitar amplifiers featuring a brushed metal grille, toggle switches, sapphire jewel indicators, and numbered analog volume EQ knobs that control the treble, mid, and bass.

The updated Newport 2 speakers retain the introductory model’s classic shape but arrive in a range of new colorways which include “Titanium Gray/Black,” “Titanium Gray/Dakota Red” and “Champagne Gold/Black.” New tuning and sound quality upgrades have been added as well as Bluetooth 5.0, Duo Mode stereo, Party Mode, and a new fast-charging function that provides one hour of battery life with 10 minutes of charge time.
