What is the best budget portable Bluetooth speaker that is very loud?
details
Hello,

I am looking to buy a loud Bluetooth speaker. We currently own an iHome iH24, which does not support Bluetooth streaming. I am looking for a price around or less than $50.

I know that the D200 outputs 18 watts, but I'm unsure how much wattage the iH24 has, so I can't really compare. Has anyone used the D200? How is it?

Thanks!

Frequent Disconnects from iPhone
details
Usually I have my Jambox sitting within about 10 feet of my iPhone but I've noticed that occasionally it drops its connection from the phone when I receive an iMessage or text. This doesn't always happen when I get a message but it only happens when I get a message AND the screen on my phone is off. Has this happened to anyone else or does anyone have any suggestions of what might be happening/how I can stop this from happening?
