Yamaha-PDX-11-Portable-Speaker

It’s been a long time since there was a product we were willing to buy 6 AA batteries for. Once you hit a certain age in life (post GI Joe/Transformers/TMNT) you don’t even really expect Christmas presents to need batteries. Yamaha is going old school with the boom box style PDX-11 Portable Speaker. Load up the stage-light-style PDX-11 with 6 AA batteries, throw your iPod/iPhone in the dock connector and get down. The acoustic experts at Yamaha understand the importance of bass, so they somehow managed to pack a 4″ woofer along with their unique two-way speaker system into the roughly 9″ x 9″ x 9″ package. There’s also a remote and four different colors available so you can customize your impromptu dance party to your liking.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
