I keep my Fire tablet in the kitchen, but the volume level was just too low even on maximum. Forget about cooking or washing dishes and listening to it - it was inaudible. The solution? A cheap Samsung soundbar connected via Bluetooth. It was a Goodwill Outlet find with no subwoofer, no power supply and missing a decorative plate on the end. I have power supplies, don’t need the sub, and it actually sits on the counter better without that plate - win win win. And, like the tablet, if anything happens to it - who cares?
