Purchased a set of three of these a month back from the "buy 3 deal" was posted (1 primary and 2 secondary). The multi-speaker audio is nifty and perfect for a basement, garage, or outside. This is not audiophile quality so don't expect Bose or even a decent "normal" Bluetooth sound but it is absolutely usable in the right environment. The sweet spot in my view is 3 total speakers, maybe 4. In all, a pretty good toy to have if you are in the Ryobi ecosystem. I would never pay $99 for one but at this price they well worth picking another up.

Tbh I see having multiple of these being a pain. 3 or 4 requiring 3 or 4 batteries? So if you dont get them their own batteries they would end up pulling from your other tools so you'd have to switch them back and forth all the time. Why not just get a nice mid tier bluetooth speaker that would sound better and have its own longer lasting rechargeable battery?

When you have a set of 10 batteries from all the clearance deals posted on One+ tools over the years it doesn't become an issue! ;-)

In all seriousness, these Ryobi speakers are not really in the same league as a "good" indoor Bluetooth speaker you'd put in the living room, bedroom, etc. Sure it would work, but they are industrial looking and are designed for portable environments and use cases. The ability to tie 3-4 speakers together in your backyard or in a garage works much better than a single portable Bluetooth speaker.

I'll be the first to admit the speaker quality is decent, but the trade off and benefits are well worth it. The way I looked at it, why get a nice mid tier bluetooth speaker that sounds great in my bedroom and risk it getting wet outside or using it where all the best sound quality won't mean all that much...

I was interested in getting these for outdoor around the pool but was under the impression they aren't waterproof or even water resistant. I have outlets I'd plug them into but don't want to put 4 speakers away and bring them back out every time I want to hear music in the back yard. Much easier to just get a decent bluetooth speaker and put it out on the deck for me.

Thanks OP, I picked these up for back yard get togethers. I bought the primary set and 2 secondary speakers. I have 10 or so batteries so this works out well for me. My home depot had the primary+secondary set for $64.88 and plenty of the secondary speakers for $25.88.

Brickseek shows plenty of both of these in stock (on clearance) at my store, but the Home Depot site says not sold in stores (so no aisle info there). Where has everyone been finding them in store? The HD site Q/A says they are in lighting. But after my experience having to get an employee to find the $159 brushless kit at the top of overstock I'd really like to know where to look.

For comparison, Amazon is showing the secondary speaker for $36 and pair for $75.

There is a good review of these speakers at https://www.protoolreviews.com/to...ers/32871/

One important detail:
Quote :
If you connect a device to the AUX IN, you cannot then broadcast that audio to other Secondary speakers. That would require an analogue to digital conversion, which isn't taking place in the P760 speaker. Also, there are no AUX inputs on the Ryobi P761 secondary wireless speakers.
However, one of the comments states:
Quote :
David, actually you CAN indeed play Aux In audio through the local speaker and transmit wirelessly to all secondary speakers. Just like you can in Bluetooth and FM modes.
Anyone know the truth?

I ended up picking up the 2 pack with the primary and a single secondary. In my Home Depot they were in an endcap with many other Ryobi One+ tools. No hint they were on sale until I checked out and the prices came up as posted: $64.88 and $25.88
Supposedly $.88 indicates a special buy so not sure if the price could go down in the future: https://www.reddit.com/r/HomeDepo...ice_codes/
I do think they were overpriced originally.

They seem like a nice little speaker--not much taller and wider than a battery footprint. Not super high quality or extremely loud, but do OK on both counts. If you aren't near FM transmitters the reception is weak (works fine when holding the handle, but not otherwise, might be able to rig an antenna). The aux input does broadcast to the other speakers.

The Home Depot reviews indicates a long battery life (e.g. "With the P108, I only used a quarter of the battery after 15 hours of use."). If you have plenty of batteries around this seems like a good deal. An easily replaceable battery is a nice feature for something like this.

One nice addition is each speaker comes with an 18V 1.3A adapter. I think I will be using one of those along with a gutted dead NiCd battery to make an AC adapter for other low power tools like the lights.

On the fence about getting more. I'll probably wait and see if the price drops even further, but think that's unlikely. The big weakness is if the primary speaker breaks the secondaries are useless.

Thanks, OP!

Found a set at mine for 64.88. Been looking at these for a while when we get a huge group of people with trailers at the beach. Easy to spread the music around. Wasnt going to pay MSRP, but $65 is more than doable. Now to decide on one or 2 secondaries.

Only $25, get 2, I have a total of 4 speakers, I think it will work out great having one in each corner of the back yard
