Is the BassJump 2 Hardware the same as the original BassJump?
Yes. The physical hardware is the same. All BassJump 2 improvements are software based. This means that if you previously purchased a BassJump, you can get all the BassJump 2 features and improvements for free - just by downloading and installing the new BassJump 2 Software here.
What does BassJump sound like?
BassJump mixes with the sound already coming from your MacBook speakers to create a fuller, richer audio experience from the speakers you already have. It's like going from the sound of a hand held AM radio to a full hi-fi sound system - using your existing MacBook speakers. BassJump just helps them sound better.
How does BassJump improve my MacBooks sound?
BassJump improves MacBook's own sound by becoming the woofer/subwoofer for your MacBook. Your MacBook speakers then function as stereo tweeters. This is often called a 2.1 sound system. This combined sonic performance sounds tremendously better than your MacBook speakers alone. You will be blown away by just how good your MacBook speakers can sound - with just a little low-end help from BassJump.

Is the BassJump Software necessary for the BassJump to work?
Yes. The BassJump software is what enables the BassJump sound output to mix with the onboard speakers in your MacBook. It also allows you to tweak the Crossover Frequency and BassJump Volume relative to the overall MacBook volume level. Plus it features two big analog-style VU-Meters that really just... look cool.
I have an old BassJump. Can I use BassJump 2 Software?
Yes. All BassJump hardware can use the updated BassJump 2 software and features.
What software can I use BassJump with?
Does BassJump work with external speakers found on the Apple LED Cinema Display?
Yes, BassJump is fully compatible with the built-in speakers on your Apple Cinema or Thunderbolt Display.
Does BassJump work with iMac?
BassJump works just fine with iMacs. We prefer to use BassJump with MacBooks on the go - as many great 'plug-in' speakers are available for home use. But if you want to add a bit of extra Bass to your iMac speakers. Or you want a ultra clean set-up without extra cables and speakers on your desk - BassJump might be the perfect add-on to your iMac.
Can you combine two or more BassJumps for double the bass?
Not at this time. Currently, the BassJump software will only address one BassJump at a time.
