How do you develop the industrial design for a speaker that stands up to Milwaukee's legendary standards of durability, yet stylish enough to use off the jobsite? That was the challenge for the new Milwaukee® M18™/M12™ Wireless Jobsite Speaker. Built to be tough enough for any jobsite, this new design delivers the durability that contractors expect from the iconic brand, with improved usability courtesy of an inspired design. The subdued but powerful composition integrates elements that have defined Milwaukee® jobsite radios for years while simultaneously breathing new life into the category. The hexagonal 360° body visually communicates durability, and adds a touch of modern style that impresses from every angle. The end caps and reinforced speaker grills are meticulously crafted to become non-intrusive elements that provide reliability and strength. The lightning-bolt- inspired red ribbon not only is a nod to Milwaukee's classic logo, but also visually ties all of the touch points together; the UI controls, the handle, the waterproof auxiliary inputs, and battery bay. The color-matching battery bay can accommodate Milwaukee's M18™ and M12™ battery platforms for convenience on the jobsite. The Milwaukee® M18™/M12™ Wireless Jobsite Speaker provides unrivaled durability and premium audio quality, with details inspired by a strong heritage.
