The Kustom Profile Two PA Speaker System is the big brother of the popular Profile System One, with increased power and more inputs. The Profile Two is built around a 5-channel powered mixer, which pumps out 300W, with 150W per channel stereo. The 8-band master EQ lets you shape the sound, and dial in lows precisely with sub frequency/subwoofer controls. Each channel also has 2-band (bass and treble) EQ controls. The 5 mixer channels all have balanced XLR and 1/4" combo inputs, with stereo inputs on channel 5.
All channels on the Kustom Profile Two feature monitor volume controls and stereo panning controls. An additional discrete AUX channel has stereo mic and line (1/8") inputs. A 24-bit digital processor delivers 16 effects, including Double Take Vocal, a vocal doubler that gives any singer's performance a bigger, richer sound. An effects loop allows insertion of external effects units. Each Kustom speaker cab, made larger for enhanced projection and performance, features 2 heavy-duty 8" speakers, plus a neodymium compression driver with 1" exit.

what it would have been like to use this system. I purchased a used unit at a great price and it rated "condition 1". After receiving the unit in a very beat up box (Fed Ex?), I hooked everything up and eagerly plugged in some music to play through it with my computer. The very minute I plugged into the line input I heard alot of noise and interference. The volume controls were also not working properly in that you could hear the music even though the main or line volume controls were turned down. However, when I cranked it up and adjusted the sound quality, I was blown away at the thump these double 8" speakers produced, except for the wavy volume undulations that I heard. I suspect that the freight carrier abused the package and may have caused the damage. After calling MF about returning the item, they were VERY helpful in paying shipping (although I would have been required to after purchasing used merchandise). I just wish I could have the opportunity to hear the system in good condition. BTW, I hooked up my electric acoustic guitar to it and it sounded fine. The main problem were the line inputs. This may be a hidden blessing in that I begin to wonder why Kustom would discontinue this line of PA's and offer a new line so quickly.
Have owned this PA for two years now. When it works it's an awesome PA for the price. Loud and clear.However, I've had to have it repaired twice. First was under warranty and nothing more than a cold solder joint (Made in China, no shocker there)Second time was on my dime. A bad capacitor. $1.00 for the part $100 for the trouble-shoot/labor. The only other fault I could find with the unit is, while it seems well vented and heat-sinked, I found that in a warm environment it tends to get pretty warm, and at higher volumes, some sort of thermal protection (I assume) starts to make the unit clip.. I bolted a small 4" AC fan to the rear vent and have had no problems since.All in all though, not a bad unit for the $$. Couple of minor probs, but that's kinda par for the course with lesser expensive Made in China stuff these days.
I was very unsure about buying this pa, but am so glad I did. This little baby is a powerhouse! I cannot wait try it out in front a crowd this saturday- I believe that it sounds better than my larger pa and is so easy to tote. THis was a great bargain!!
If you are on a tight budget and need a small PA, this is a good choice.This is NOT a "line array." It DOES have two speakers aligned vertically. Some people confuse that with "line array." This design is called a "D'Appolito configuration" after Dr. Joseph A. D'Appolito who developed it.The D'Appolito design of these is a good idea; so good in fact that it makes the cheap speakers perform beyond expectations. The amplifier / mixer is not super hi-fidelity, but it is not bad. It is perfectly matched to the other components, so novice users will find it easy-to-use but hard-to-kill.As cheap as this is, it is still FAR BETTER than the Fishman loudbox, better than the Fishman Solo (which is twice the cost of this and merely Mono) and has MUCH better fidelity than any of the Roland acoustic guitar amps. Simply because this is a STEREO SYSTEM with separate speakers, it will devastate any single box for imaging regardless of price. I have installed these in several low-budget ?coffee-house joints? and have had no failures; even though the "average user" is a tattooed-teen who can't play a radio without tech-support. This system is nearly goof-proof.Kustom made intelligent choices with realistic compromises so that the system, AS A WHOLE, performs better than the sum of its parts. All components are matched so you are not spending too much on any single component that gets wasted on a cheap link somewhere else in the chain.The mixer is nowhere near the quality of Mackie, but it is more reliable than any Behringer product. The power amp is nothing compared to any QSC amp, yet it has adequate muscle and safely ?fits? the power-handling of these speakers. Caveats: Do NOT expect this to be a bass-crazy DJ?s Dream. It can reproduce frequencies as low a 60Hz, and up to 16 kHz intelligibly; which is just fine for most music in noisy commercial spaces. These are 4-ohm speakers, and although the amp could probably handle a 2-ohm load, I would advise against adding more speakers in parallel. I have wired these amps to four speakers in series with no problems. Both for Size and Price; this performs VERY WELL and sounds much better than acoustic guitar amps that cost twice as much. Use it as-is, without modification and within reasonable limits. You will get your money?s worth.
I have used this system for small to medium Karaoke gigs and it has performed wonderfully! I have had 3 microphones and a stereo line input going into it and everything has worked well. It is astounding sound considering the size and portability of the unit. The sound is crystal clear. The digital effects and EQ are very useful and hard to find in this price range. It even has a line level monitor out which I use to run a powered singer monitor. I also purchased the optional speaker stands, which are a must, since regular speaker stands will not work with this system. The only thing I would suggest is a better quality roller bag. It only lasted a few gigs when it fell apart. The build quality of the unit itself is fine.
This Kustom Profile Two system was purchased to replace a Kustom Profile One for vocals and micing saxophones for a big band in small to medium venues and I have to say that it does a nice job at that. We use 10 brass and with this system the saxophones and vocals have no problem coming through. It has plenty of nice features and very clear sound quality. Now the negative stuff. The composite material that is used on the amp and speakers chips very easily, though it appears to be the same material that was on our older Profile One system but we did not experience the same problem on that system. Another problem is the on this particular system the Kustom name has been placed upside down on one of the speakers, to me that is something that should have been caught in final inspection at the factory. Lastly, one of the biggest selling points to me for this system are the bags that come with it, I need something that packs up quickly and is very portable. The zippers on all 3 pieces are the cheapest I?ve ever seen, it?s not easy to open or close them as they will pop open at any point within the zipper, how expensive are zippers anyway. Along the same lines the shoulder straps are useless as the clamps on the ends tend to get sprung the wrong way. Overall I rate the sound quality, price, and features very high but very low on the quality control.
This system is better than you would think for the price. The quality of sound is great! I a not disappointed.
