Comments about Fender Passport CONFERENCE 175W Portable PA System:

What happened to The Fender Passport 150. I was one of the first to ever have the Fender Passport 150 bought about 18 years ago. I turned on about 100 professionals to using it. After 18 years it finally blew out. My purchase of the new replacement 175 Conference is a weak substandard version. Doesn't have nearly the the same umph! My 150 I never went above 1/2 way on master. Now with the Conference I have to go all the way to get a mediocre less powerful sound. Why do companies have to keep messing with perfection. Shame on Fender and their CEO for allowing this to happen. I'm searching for a competitive product.

Comments about Fender Passport CONFERENCE 175W Portable PA System:

Great for outdoor events (speaking/limited music use) -- settings don't let you add reverb or much else other than volume and tone, but extremely useful for what I bought it for.

Comments about Fender Passport CONFERENCE 175W Portable PA System:

This product is total garbage from top to bottom. Terrible sound, limited range, feedback issues, channels cut in and out, signal from one channel causes loss of gain / presence of another channel. Cheap components and a limited design. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Spend the money on something better from a company that specializes in this. Stick to guitars, Fender. You would get a better sound out of one of those Karaoke machines from the 90's you could get at Circuit City.
