If you're looking for high-quality sound at high volume, look the other way. I would recommend this for public speaking engagements and music rehearsals, but that's about it. I have owned mine for 3-years now and have not had any problems with the unit. Road worthiness is lacking, so be gentle! The 740 Plus has served me well and was very much worth the price I paid for it
The features are what you should expect from a powered mixer. The effects are pretty cool and so are the dual EQ's.
As stated earlier, the 1/4-inch jacks on the speakers are mounted on thin plastic and aren't any too strong - be care with them! The speaker cables should be replaced right away with better 14 or 12-gauge cables. I use this strictly for my stereo keyboard rig when playing with our country-swing band at rehearsals - mostly pianos. The sound quality leaves something to be desired, however, especially at higher volumes. While playing out, I use a pair of Ashly 800-watt bridged power amps connected to a Yamaha stereo mixer and 2 Carvin 15-inch 3-way loudspeakers. This set-up rocks the house and well beyond, while the Phonic, well, is best suited for practicing with the band.
For the price, it's a good bet that you'll find this Phonic package useful in several applications.

RUN AWAY FROM THE EXTENDED WARRANTY NOW!

This PA sounded great and very powerful for the price. I got the extended warranty, to protect it. What a joke. I really want to write a review on the ADH Warranty. So people dont waste their time and money.

We jam once a week and after about six months, the jack input on one of the speakers popped out. I contacted ADH and they were going to send me a return postage for the speaker. In return they were going to give me about half of what it would cost to replace the speaker. The return postage never arrived though, so I ended up soldering the speaker and that worked out ok.

Then around the one year mark the PA started cutting out after 20 minutes of use. So we had to keep turning it off and waiting awile to use it again and then try it again for another 20 minutes or so. After some research seems this is a common problem with the PA. It quickly got to the point where it wasn't worth using at all and another band member got a cheap PA head to use, and we set the Phonic aside.

I decided after awile that since the Phinic sounded better and I did have this ADH warranty to try again to use the warranty. I called, and they were very nice over the phone and they agreed to fix it for me. They were supposed to send me a return shipping label, and in the meantime they gave me a confirmation code and phone number to call the next day to be sure the work order was in with the repair place. Satisfied I agreed to take the phone survey at which point I gave a 5 star review. Called the repair place the next day as instructed and was pleased that the work order was in. They said the whole process would be like a week and I would have my PA head back soon.

But the shipping label never came. I waited a few weeks and called back. Long story short they were nice again and were to resend the shipping label. This time through email as well as regular mail. I told then they were nice but declined the survey this time as I still was only half way there without the shipping label.

Again it never came. I had baby in the meantime so afew weeks went by again before I would call a third time. Same deal they said they would send shipping label both email and snail mail. Neither ever came.

I dont know the situation here but there is definately a problem with this ADH Warranty. I would run away from the ADH Warranty on any purchase, and although this is a great souding PA for the price, I would run away from it as well due to the common issues that many including myself have had.

    Comments about Phonic Powerpod 740 Plus / S715 PA Package:

    Good starter system. Offers a lot of features for a reasonable price. I would recommend this package for amateur groups that do not play/sing at extremely high levels and do not play extemely large venues. Lo-Z Mic jacks do not have locks but seem to make good contact. Some plastic parts on the speakers don't seem very durable. I do not think they would hold up for a full time working band.

    Comments about Phonic Powerpod 740 Plus / S715 PA Package:

    Had this setup for about 7 years. Was used extensively for the past 5 years. No complaints at all on the quality of sound. However when the fx return knob was damaged and making contact with its circuit board in the back it was unusable. Tried to get replacement part from Phonic and was told(after numerous attempts for them to contact me back)that the part was unavailable even though they still produce the product. There is only one contact person in the U.S. named Eric Schwartz who has the personality of a wet mop. His demeanor for being in customer support was deplorable. No desire to make me feel I was important and to keep me as a customer or make me want to buy another Phonic product. The powerpod is an awesome product for the money. But if something breaks on it, you may as well throw it out. Can't say I didn't get my money's worth out of it. I did get 5 great years out of it. But Phonic customer support is unacceptable to me. If you're on a tight budget go ahead and buy it but protect it with your life. Or save up more money and buy something you can at least gets parts for and repair. I DO NOT recommend any Phonic product based only on it's lack of customer support.

      These sound great. I needed them for a presentation/performance I was giving at my college. HOWEVER, when I got them fresh out of the box, one of the tweeter drivers was disconnected from the speaker wires and cabinet inside; it was bouncing around! I had to take apart the speaker and connect the tweeter and screw it into place. You can't crank them up too loud, the bass starts to get distorted. Definitely reliable for indoor use though.

      The price was great so I bought it. Its a cool rig in every way except for power. No volume whatsoever. I think they have drastically over rated the wattage on this thing. If you're looking for a gigable PA in this price range buy an old Peavey XR rig and speakers. Yamaha is also very good. You can find the old school stuff selling for roughly the same price. There's no point in lugging 15 inch cabs around if they're not giving you the sound you want from them.

      Comments about Phonic Powerpod 740 Plus / S715 PA Package:

      I have waited for 2 years to write this review so I could evaluate them. The unit has been used at many live music events with live musicians and also for DJ indoors and outdoors. When not using at events they are used at home for practicing. They are used at least 5 times a week. I do not over power them with music to try and destroy them like hard rockers do so they have worked great. I'm sure if you redline them for a long period of time they would blow just like any other brand (you can destroy anything if you try). They sound great and perform excellent. The music style is mostly Country, Bluegrass and older rock. I would strongly recommend these to anyone using them as I do. I recently had a request form a live band to use my unit over their expensive setup do to the quality of sound. They wanted to know where I got them and how much it cost. I will be purchasing another set soon to extend the one I have due to growing bigger and also to have a second set so we can do multiple events at the same time. GREAT PRICE, EXCELLENT PRODUCT!!

      I purchased this for a band startup to have something to use, planning on getting something better once the band got going, after a few months the limiter showed it was always peaked and no output from the pa. Phonic is a very hard company to get a hold of for warranty repair, by the time they got back to me it was out of warranty, would not rec. To anyone just save a little extra and buy better quality, I learned from this you get what you pay for.

      Comments about Phonic Powerpod 740 Plus / S715 PA Package:

      I purchased this system for my small cowboy church. I set it up with the two main 15" speakers 40' apart and added 2 10" monitor speakers between them at 8' apart. I placed the Amp at the rear of the room 55' back to a photo platform. The room is wood walls, and corrugated tin overhead. Not the best environment for aquatics', but this system seems to handle it very well. (Maybe a little help from above there too). The sound is clear thru the speakers no matter if we have singers or ministers at the microphones. I am very pleased with the system and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great PA system. Check out the sound at http://www.4ccowboychurch.org
