Newest Versatile XBOOM Speaker Perfect for Both Indoor and Outdoor Use
SEOUL, Sep. 7, 2021 — The new LG XBOOM 360 speaker (model RP4) from LG Electronics (LG) features a conical-cylindrical design and delivers authentic, omnidirectional audio that is perfect for any space or occasion. Pleasing to the eye, the speaker’s unique form factor enables LG XBOOM 360 to radiate sound in all directions for a lifelike performance with impressive power and clarity. Ideal for today’s lifestyle focused on small social gatherings, this stylish speaker will make its debut in key markets starting this month.
The attractive conical-cylindrical shape of LG XBOOM 360 isn’t just pleasing to the eye, its function is to accommodate the distortion-free reflector structure of the speaker.

So whether indoors or out, XBOOM 360 envelops listeners in rich, detailed audio, bringing a sense of three-dimensional vitality to every genre of music.
The premium build quality of the tweeter and woofer also helps to create a convincing and exceptionally well-balanced soundstage. The tweeter’s titanium diaphragm creates a linear frequency for superb performance and accurate reproduction across the high frequency range. Moreover, the speaker’s durable glass fiber woofer generates dynamic bass with a clear, natural mid-range response. The combination of powerful drivers and robust 120W output enables LG XBOOM 360 to turn any room or space into a listening sweet spot.
LG’s newest wireless speaker is designed to provide versatility and the multisensory experience today’s consumers demand.
