Looking for a portable Battery Powered PA for a client.

Needs BT & WL Mic.

Would like 2 options (budget & expensive).

---

I've used the Denon/Marantz Envoi and it was/is excellent. But it's discontinued :(

I've used the MiPro MA-808 before and the BT is junk and for $2k isn't worth it.

I know Anchor is the old standby but after experiencing them, they're super overpriced and a simple horn + woofer would do 10x better than their lame "line array" *laugh*

I thought Bose had a system, but I can't find it now.

I'll toss my 2-cents in here since I've been through the same situation (mostly).
I do mostly weddings and needed a small portable system (SOS and 2 wireless) for ceremonies far enough from power that running extension cords would be impractical.
Did not want to deal with dragging a generator around and dealing with fuel, etc.
Started with an Anchor system, can't remember which one but it was mid-level. Did not like the sound of the speaker and did not get nearly loud enough for a windy ceremony.
Also tried the Galaxy TQ8, which worked okay but again, not loud enough.
So it finally dawned on me that since I already bring 4 Yamaha DXR10's and an Audix dual wireless, why not try and use those?
I hooked up the small system with 2 DXR10's, a QSC Touchmix 16 and the Audix wireless and monitored power usage with a Kill-a-watt. I ran music from an iPod and used the mics for about an hour to get a good reading. 97 watts, 1.11 amps. .06 KWH.
Ordered a Jackery Explorer 500 battery pack from Amazon and ran the same rig for almost 2 hours. Had battery to spare.
So the only extra piece of gear I have to bring is the Jackery, which is pretty small and very quiet (it does have a small fan). If I need BT I use my Switchcraft 318BT into the TouchMix.

While the SM80 does what it does quite well, when I think of a KF650... an SM 80 is missing the entire LF bandpass.

 I have both 650's and the Danley's. The SM 80 took the place of a pair of KF650z and do it with half the weight and 1/3 the power requirements. Now I did have the help of Ivan Beaver in setting up the rig but I constantly do shows with the SM 80 that used to be done with KF650's. The 80's are louder and wider and carry further.

It's what you need to keep Lucas electric on your Brit bike from failing.
Why do Englishmen like warm beer?
It's because they have Lucas refrigerators.

Lucas, the Prince of Darkness

Back in my mechanics days, i made good coin getting the smoke back into MG and Triumph "electrics"....

I use Backblaze for backups - it's a pay one price regardless of how much you have to back up or how many attached drives. Restore can either be over the internet or they'll mail you a drive for $139. Restore your files, return the drive and your payment is returned.


One more vote for Backblaze. Good pricing, fantastic service, and Amazon S3 compatibility. They even go above and beyond and publish extended metrics on drive failures per manufacturer every year - an invaluable reference when purchasing disks for my personal use.

Have you looked into the QSC PL380? They’re pretty stout; we had a bunch of them when we ran passive JTR subs and were really impressed by them. Check with Mike Pyle for better pricing.

To me, the PL380, although a great amp, would be a sideways move. Plus losing the good DSP processing of the ITech if you need it. I still power my Danleys with an ITech 6000 and it just works and works, over 10 years and running and who knows how old it was when I got it. If it ever started acting up where I questioned its reliability, I might consider the Powersoft T-series or Danley's DNA re-badged Linea series.

Yes.  I think the SH46 would be a better comparison/step up, or more accurately - a modern KF850 in a KF650 box.  The main points of the KF650 are that it had output, clarity (3-way), low-mids (15" driver), and arrayable.  The SH46 has even more output, even more clarity, OK low mids, and more arrayable.  At lower weight (than KF850), lower cost, and lower amp cost. 

Other potential competitors are the Peter Morris PM60, if you're up for DIY.  Or TW Audio T24N, the Fulcrum models above, Bassboss AT-312.  Maybe even RCF TTP4A.

These models were exactly along the lines I was thinking.

I know this is a rather old thread, but....It sucks that QSC dumped the handy dandy PowerCon in and out with a jumper cable included for a single Edison in! The PowerCons are a quick and easy and safer way to hook up a QSC quasi line array. My $.02

I have a dozen or so K series boxes in my inventory.  None have powercon.  All are IEC as are the KW boxes in my inventory...

What choo been smokin' Willis?

Tom Danley did an interesting recording of fireworks a few years ago.

I don't think he shared how he did it but I suspect he stuck a mic down in the throat of a huge horn.
