I'm a jazz guitarist playing small clubs, art galleries, coffee houses and small outdoor venues. I've been using the Fender Passport Deluxe PD-150 PA System for about 2 years performing a couple of shows per month. For smaller shows, I use the Passport PD-150 by itself and plug my Epiphone Joe Pass Archtop or 1960 Gibson ES-125 directly into it. I add a pair of 75 watt subwoofers to fill out the sound on outdoor shows or indoor shows with more than 100 guests . If you're using the Passport 150 primarily for vocals with a band, it's good for small venues (200 capacity). I used it at a recent blues-rock gig with drums, bass, keys, 3 guitars and 3 vocalists and it really struggled to keep up. The Passport PD-150 is not a good choice for loud bands. The Passport PD-250 is a better choice. For most gigs, I use backing tracks on an mp3 player. The guitar sound is pretty good for a PA system, but most of the time I play though a 1965 Fender Tremolux and use the Passport PD-150 for the backing tracks. It is PERFECT for this. I can setup in 10 minutes, plug in the MP3 player, guitar and subs and it's good go. I use the effects loop out for the subs; there isn't a sub-out jack. I have three complaints: 1) The reverb has a very digital sound to it, so I don?t use it and can?t recommend it. If you need reverb, use your favorite outboard reverb on the effects send/receive loop.2) There isn?t a sub-out jack. 3) There isn?t a monitor-out jack. The work around for sub and monitor outs is to use the tape-out or the effects-out; however, there are drawback to doing this.The Fender Passport Deluxe PD-150 is a well designed, high quality PA System in convenient, light weight, self-contained package. It's small enough to fit in most car trunks and will save you countless hours in setup time, so you can focus on your music, not music engineering and visits to the chiropractor.

I was so excited when I first saw the Passport. Finally, a truly portable sound system for solo artists or small combos. So why did Fender scrimp on the most essential features?First, the sideways layout of the console with it's silly preschool-toy knobs is confusing, but only ONE EQ knob per channel? Come on, that's simply not adequate for anyone who cares about sound quality.And even the master channel has only low and high EQ (no mid).If you're playing acoustic guitar, forget it unless you've got outboard EQ and a good pickup. Your typical under-saddle piezo pickup will sound buzzy and nasal through this rig.Fender could have put smaller knobs and arranged them vertically (sheesh!) with 3-bands per channel and at least a 5-band graphic EQ on the master, and this probably would have been a worthwhile product. As it is, it's a toy.Sorry Fender, you blew it this time.

Great Portable Unit

By Pastor Myles

from Red Deer Alberta Canada

I am a pastor of a large congregation, and use to some pretty serious sound equipment, but this little unit is wonderful! I am a EQ nut and was surprised with just how well this unit did with its limited (very limited) eq! I bought the optional converter and battery pack and now I am totally portable for any event whether there is power nearby or not. Max audience of 300 I would say for speaking, and less for decent live music as the bass is what you would expect out of such small speakers. Great Job Fender (although it could look more professional with less playschool nobs) Recommend highly for anyone needing a VERY portable sound system!

Perfect for Our Meetings with 150 People

By DK Gregory

from Martinez, CA

Our high school basketball officials association with 150 members was looking for a portable audio system to conduct training. After thorough research on the web, we decided to purchase the Fender PA-150 (used) and Fender ST-280 Passport Stand Kit. Used the system for the first time yesterday. Easy to set up, plenty of volume, easy to control. Only drawback is the storage compartment for the mic is limited, and you cannot store the speaker wires in there if the mic & its cable are in there. It would also have been good if Fender had provided a longer cable for the MP3 hookup. However, the system worked just perfectly, and Musicians Friend has just terrific customer service people, along with the best price compared to the other vendors recommended on the Fender web site.

Recommended.

By Guitar30

from Hollywood CA

Okay, the passport was the first PA system I have ever used. Not to bad looking back at it. It was one of the PA systems in my high school music class. It with stood all of the morons messing with it, and dropping it, so I would recommended it to any, ANY highschool band. When we did a show out in Long Beach, CA, we dropped it down at least a flight of stairs, worked fine. It does get a little "iffy" past 7, but i would recommended this for any one starting off, or a veteran musicain looking for something reliable, but won't shatter the windows loud. Thank you Fender.

Not too shabby

By sgpersoniguess

from North Carolina

Extremely portable and compact (great for cramming drums, guitars, stands and this system into one van). In fact, the day before a major gig (400+), our bassist dropped it down a flight of wooden stairs. we tested it out, and it was working perfectly fine! only problem is that it cannot handle the bass very well when cranked past 7, so low notes are too quiet when in front of a large crowd

Exactly what I needed

By DJ Cizzle

from Florida

THis product was exactly what I was looking for. I have had it for about a year now and I use it everywhere that my church has to go and sing. I run my computer through it as well for just playing CD's. I have to setup and break down a full drumset when I go places and this allows me to have a PA system with minimal setup and breakdown.

Good buy-Excellent Features

By Stratplayer88-08nZT

from Kentucky

I bought the passport about two years ago and it is still kicking just fine. It was plenty loud when I got it but just recently bought two more peavey 12 powered monitors. I didnt buy this unit for its portability, but it packs up very nice and small with a decent sized cargo space inside to store cables, mics, pedals, ect. I am just an over zealous gear hungry guitarist that was looking to upgrade his home sterio. Plenty of inputs make it easy to have any setup you want. Personally I run my ipod directly into either of the sterio channels, and get big clear sound any time I want. Sounds great at high or low volumes. Also comes with microphones that dont sound that bad even compared to my shure SM58's. I took one apart and construction seems to be similar. Whether you are looking to play smaller gigs, or rocking the walls out of a room at home this is the right product at a great price. No problems so far.

Do not hesitate to buy!

By FireWalker

from Dayton, OH

I didn't expect such a clear, crisp and at the same time, warm sound from this set up. If your eyes were closed you would not believe the sound is coming from such a compact unit. I use it with my acoustic electric guitar and vocals and I could not be happier. The reverb sounds great The FREE speaker stands are AMAZING! Bottom line, if your performing, you will perform better with this PD 150 from fender.

A small box that rocks

By dTrav001

from Central NH

I was quite suspicious about this purchase ... a 27 lb. suitcase PA with 5" woofers? But this thing blew me away, quite loud and with an amazing low end ... you should feel the air move through those little ports. The built-in reverb is nice, a bit smooth but not at all annoying, the mid/high end is very open and 'un-beamy' ... and best of all, you can position them many feet *behind* the mics and they just don't feed back ... we don't need monitors! For a small 2-4 pc band they'll comfortably lift your vocals above the stage instruments, and there's almost nothing to pack up at the end of the night. (Slight point loss for somewhat Fisher-Price-styled knobs ... I face it away from the audience!)

Oh yeah!

By GuitarTommy

from Chandler, Arizona

I have had them a week now. I love em. Sound is great. I bought them for small gigs and my practice room. I would have given them four 5's on the rating but my only concerns upon receipt are you can see where they glue the rubber grummet together on each speaker. A very minor cosmetic issue but it must be noted. The sound is crystal clear. I hear things I didn't even hear on my last system. The reverb sounds excellent. My little trio is able to produce excellently through my new favorite toy! I even plugged my acoustic/electric directly in to check sounds and it was far better than my last several PA's. Wow, Wow. Love my new fender!
