    If this isn't the correct forum for this, i apologize. I'm looking for opinions on the Fender Passport PA system. My partner and I are using this ONLY for vocals. He plays acoustic guitar and I play bass. Both of us have our own amps, mics, cables, etc. I checked the reviews on MF and most are very good, but I'm always interested in what fellow TB'ers have to say. If anyone has a suggestion for an alternative small pa system, please share your thoughts. Will be using this for small to small/medium venues. Thanks in advance.

    For what you are doing I would say it would be a great little set up. However here is a heads up on some things about the PD150. Price is good yes, durability is also good. Comes with crappy mic (get a 58 or something). Does not come with speaker stands, thats sucks ass. The layout of the mixer is not all that user friendly, but works just fine. Has RCA inputs on channel 3 (selectable between XLR/Phono) and on channell 4 (maintaining stereo). You probobly know all of this though. Might I also suggest the Peavey Escort? Its a little bit more spendy and in my mind sounds a little better, the warranty is 5 years and peavey is pretty good with that stuff. Also has 4 XLR's which you may not care about but for some its important. Comes with speaker stands and a stand for the powered mixer part, which all fold up into the case. Its more portable and easier to use in my mind.

    Thats my two cents, I used to work at a rental house so I am very familiar with both. Hope that helps.
