    I took a gamble on this system, and it paid off. I highly recommend this unit for anyone looking for a good start up PA, or for a good practice system. the amp is bridgeable, so you could continuously add to it. Very pleased!
    I will start by saying this is a budget system, so my opinion of this system is based soley on the fact that it is an inexpensive PA.

    I was hesitant at first to purchase this unit because I have always used Mackie products in the past. My band was looking for a dependable budget line practice PA, so we decided on this one. I was absolutely blown away by its performance, it is built very well and operation is simple. It has just about the same options as an expensive Mackie 808. The speakers are perfect for a small room practice situation, but more speakers could be added to play small to medium venues with no problem. The speaker cables this unit comes with are chep..they do the job, but I would recommend investing in some heavy duty cables.



    Now for the mic....WOW! First of all, I use mostly Shure mic systems. I have a lot of low end to my vocals, and sometimes it can be hard to find a good mic to clearly pick that up. Usually when I get a cheap mic with equipment packages I toss them to the side. I started off with my SM58, and just for the hell of it decided to plug the Phonic mic in..HOLY MICROPHONE! This mic has almost a studio quality to it, it blows the SM58 out of the water! I have been performing for about 20 years people, and I am not kidding when I say this mic is amazing! I have contacted Musicians Friend in an efford to purchase atleast 10 more of these mics. They do not sell them seperately, but they are working on it for me.


    When this PA arrived I noticed a clanging sound when I lifted the speaker out of its packaging. I had to take the speaker apart and noticed the tweeter was not attatched to the horn. I simply screwed it on, and have had no other issues.

    This package has a great price and seems to be a good value for a starting setup but you'll find that you need to upgrade parts almost from the start. The Cables are worthless for one thing. I also found that the mixer colors your sound in a bad way. A better mic helps but not by much. After a few uses the FX section died - Most of the time it doesn't power up with the unit and even when it does it doesn't function. Also the EQ controls aren't smooth at all. I really wish I had waited to get a better setup. Currently using it only as an P-amp until I can afford active speakers.

    Up and running an hour out of the box. Able to hook up six mikes and monitor with very little tweaking. Fills the performance area with good sound even toward the back. Ideal system for our church, small venues, and outdoors. Will make good use of it. would recommend it for anybody with similar needs Read negative reviews and was somewhat leary, but found my fears were groundless. Hope for durability.

        Comments about Phonic Powerpod 740 Plus / S712 PA Package:

        Didn't know anything about PA system but needed one for our 150 people outdoor church event. Did some homework and picked out 3 systems that fits our budget and need. When I called the nice folks at MF, the sale rep was very helpful. He took the time to learn what we want to do and the venue's physical character (in a paddle tennis court) before recommended this Phonic Powerpod 740 Plus / S712 PA Package.
        The system arrived as scheduled. But when we tested the system w/ the included mic we had no sound. Luckly it was due to the bad XLR cable that came w/ the system. Changed a cable and the wired mic works fine. We also connected a GTD Audio G-622H 200 Channel UHF Wireless microphone System to it and all 3 mic worked great. We had many speeches and music thoughout our 4-hour event and the system delivered clear & good sound without heating up.
        I just called MF customer service regarding the bad XRL cable and they are sending me a replacement cable tomorrow, no ifs, ands, or buts. I'll recommand MF to anybody for their friendly & professional service and products.

        I use this for singing, playing my acoustic/electric guitar, and my electronic drums through. It has a nice clean sound. My guitar sounds great playing straight in with no other effects needed. The built in effects are just ok, but considering the price you just can't beat this system.

        Bought it for DJ purposes, Satisfied and very reliable

        Works great
        I've had this system for about 7 months now and I love it, it never fails on me and has enough power to fill up a Gym full of highschoolers with loud music. I would say you need a subwoofer because the 12" woofers don't produce alot of bass. The amp/mixer itself works perfect, i dont really enjoy the selection on effects it has but thats just me. I would recommend this package to anybody who needs a nice, affordable sound/PA system!

        This unit is feature packed; it contains more amenities than most small organizations with limited budgets would opt for if they had to purchase them separately. 5 months and counting still works like a charm!
