Super-portable and convenient PA system that will go where you go, and keep you sounding great.

The PA50 PA System from Kustom combines quality performance and convenient features, all in a highly portable package. You’ll find that the PA50 works well in a variety of environments, amplifying vocals, instruments, keyboards, drum machines, audio devices, and more.

The two 4.5" speakers and high-frequency driver provide just the right combination of high and midrange sounds. This balance ensures your vocals cut through the mix while minimizing harsh and unwanted frequencies. The PA50 Construction is based on the same tried-and-true techniques as the rest of our speaker line. This includes a heavy-duty steel grill and rigid corners. This model also utilizes a high-frequency driver for crisp, accurate reproduction of treble frequency and articulate speech.

For the soloist or acoustic duo, the PA50 works well when positioned on a standard speaker stand. As your following grows, so does your sound system; multiple units can be connected to increase the sound coverage in your venue of choice.

Features

  • Master Level Control
  • Twin 4.5" Drivers with High-Frequency horn

    I own 2 of these, and have used them for over 100 gigs in the last year - (acoustic,electric guitar & vocals) - Surprising amount of Bass for such a small box, a perfect feature-set - Guitar + vocals + Ipod for breaks... They started as an emergency back-up for my Loudbox amp, but I use these more often. The lack of reverb is not an issue - I love the sound of My Taylor guitar & Nady microphone thru this amp - No EFX, it sounds REAL, my clients always compliment the sound.

    Okay - So I am trying to be generous here. The first unit I recieved had a badly bent speaker frame, blown speaker and bent speaker cage. The second one they sent me made my acoustic guitar sound like a heavy metal player - extremely distorted and overdriven sound. I am an experienced musician and I am used to setting up sound equipment. I never turned the main past 12 o'clock and the channels were never pushed past 12 either. Kustom quality control sucks. On the plus side - the little pa pushes out a LOT of sound. I could see that if it was working properly it would easily support backyard cookout jams and coffee shop gigs. On the plus side - so far MF customer service has been good. I'm going to try one more and hope for the best. Next competitor (Behringer B205D) costs nearly twice as much. I guess you get what you pay for. If you buy one of these - do it in person and check it out thoroughly before. Sadly, I can't recommend.

      Very handy piece of gear. Perfect for practice, parties or tiny venues. Also great for a personal monitor. As you would expect, the small speakers don't produce much bottom end. The bottom gets better when its placed on the on the floor rather than a stand. The power, price and portability are amazing!

      Comments about Kustom PA50 Personal PA System:

      I ordered two of these bad boys from MF on a Sunday and they came 3 days later.

      I use them mainly to hear music when I am beating on my drums.

      They have Phono plugs as inputs so you will have to deal and adapt to that, which of course is rather easy.

      I have used them as a sort of PA when I go to the local music stores for jams, they are more than adequate for basic drum miking.

      I also take them to friends houses when they have parties.

      I take a small portable DVD/CD player with me and run the RCA plugs into a phono adapter and my friend are stunned when the hear the results.

      Great value for the cash, pick up a set of stands when you can afford to and you will be good to go.

      Plenty vids on You Tube showing what they look and sound like.

        I bought this for my home studio, I researched this a lot before buying and yet never noticed that there was no reverb on this,(my fault) It also picked up that my cell phone went off and it causes interference with the sound, weird..What I really like was that M.F. get's it shipped fast and easy.I guess I better look for a small reverb unit.

            Comments about Kustom PA50 Personal PA System:

            I bought two for my solo gigs during the summer. They were put to the test for an outdoor festival that had the artist do busking-style performances. I have a nice acoustic amp that has my guitar and vocal inputs with the type of reverb that I like. I connected the post eq output to the PA on a stand and synced it with the other.
            Well, It was perfect. Great sound, quality volume output and super portable.
            Seemed that one was good enough so I let another musician borrow the other to save his time loading in a PA. For what we were doing it was fine. But later I synced them both up and was told that together they sounded like a big PA system.
            My back is going to thank my this summer. We'll see how the hold up.

              Comments about Kustom PA50 Personal PA System:

              For the money, this is one of the most useful tools in my box. This thing is loud enough to be used as the sole source of amplification for my Roland Keyboard, cutting thru the mix of several guitars, bass, drums and voices. I would not, however, use it in this way as a rule. I own some very good equipment - on a larger scale, but this little guy is the most handy!

                Pleasantly surprised with the sound, solid construction, and overall value for the minimal cost. I plan to use it as a spot monitor and with a little equalization in the high end, it should work quite nicely.

                I had already bought one of these to use as a monitor with the band and was amazed with the volume and clarity. I perform solo ocassionally and now use two of these as my PA in small venues. It easily supports my drum machine, mic and guitar as well as my vocal harmonizer. You just can't beat the price for the quality.

                  As a jazz guitarist who plays with a trio mainly,wherever I play I usually let people sit in which means I get a lot of singers and Besides my rig I end up bringing more equipment than sometimes the gig is worth.Enter, two pa50s delivered a day before the gig.The gig is at a fairly large restaurant/bar here in Toledo.To my surprise these babies out performed all my expectations with plenty of headroom left over.I ran them backline supplementing a Hammond and also supporting two vocals and they hung right in.Great product!!!
