My 4 piece band uses this PA package. We got it when it was priced cheaper. The speakers are nice, and bigger than I thought. The PA itself is decent quality. Knobs slightly flimsy, but usable. The effects are OK, though we only use reverb. The power output is great, plenty of power for our small to medium gigs. We only put vocals through it mainly, sometimes keys and kick. It can be very loud if set up properly. I have found the output jacks to be a PAIN to figure out. The manual doesn't describe it well. It has mains and monitor outs, and various switches to select between the two, so rather difficult to get working properly. So far it has held up well to gigging. We had one time when it was not producing any sound. Turned it off and back on again and worked fine again. It has even held up well to the hardcore kids we let use our PA if we happen to be gigging with them. Overall good buy.
I 'settled' with this system because of a tight budget. My needs weren't extensive, but I still wanted something flexible, and powerful enough to be heard in a variety of settings. I had my doubts.When I got them in and tried them out, I was not disappointed at all. Good sound and lots of adjustment. The mike it comes with is cheap, but usable. The speaker cables included are 25' and don't have the nice shielding that most do. I'd suggest investing in a pair of 50 footers if you want a little better quality there. Should also think about adding some buzz and feedback filters to clean up the noise made from the cheaper power supply. But i'm being picky. You get ALOT more for your money with this perfect startup system.
Have this unit for about a month now. I primarily bought it for vocals and keyboards. This unit works well for most instruments, plenty of volume and good tone. I am still struggling with the vocals and feedback issues which forces me to drop the volume even though I tweek with the EQs, speaker and mic positions etc.. Considering the price, you can't expect much which is why I rated it so high. I would have traded the "special effects" for better feedback control and a little more power. Overall I am not complaining, its appears to be a solid unit so far. If you need a PA for practice, messing around or small venues, on a tight budget this is a good value, but don't expect to get more than it is. Not a very good manual and the mic is pretty low quality. For the price it is still a good deal.
Wow - Very pleased with the Phonic Power Pod. The speakers are large and well constructed. The mixer has plenty of power for my current uses. It will work well for small venues, parties, and practice/jam sessions. I like the EFX programs and mainly use the reverb. You can run a small guitar practice amp into the powerpod and crank it up. It fills the room nicely. I would have spent this much on a large guitar combo amp, but can add in the vocals and other instruments with this.All around good deal.
I use it for weekly DJ gigs at a small club (80 - 100 people), weddings and occasional house parties. The sound quality is excellent and I have never felt like I needed more power. I did have to return one speaker due to a noisy cabinet, but Musician's Friend took care of me, no hassle at all. I recommend their Gold Coverage for situations like this. All in all a very good PA at an excellent price. Sounds better than Nady and Kustom systems I've used and is equal in sound quality to a friend's Mackie SRM 350s. You can't go wrong with this one.
Really awsome! I just started my band and this was the first pa i got. It works great. it is plently loud (i only have it up 1/4 of the way and my ears ring) the speakers are not great for bass, but the sounds from all the instruments blend well. The mic is ok.
this is a great price for a small gig and practice P.A. i plug mics, acoustic guitar(if needed)and i run the bass through it too. of course the bass is backed up by its own amp aswell. the only problem is the buzz. some buzzes i enjoy but not ones from speakers. its an easy fix though. just buy a buzz eliminator and run it through your P.A.
I'm in a contempary rock band. We bought this for when we do coffee shop like stuff. We run three mics, up to the three acoustics, and a keyboard. This is a great little system it doesn't do a whole lot. But that's alright. Our bass player has his own cabinet. We don't run anything real low through this. The speakers are good but not that good. But it's flexible. Buy two monitors and you've got a complete system. When we play our harder shows this thing can put out enough power to get the vocals loud enough to cut through the band when we've got two cabinets going and full drum set. highs sound nice in the system I like it alot.Guys this doesn't really have all that many features, but it certaintly gets the job done. The speakers are very nice
I have owned this system for a little over 2 months now and I must say that I am very pleased with how well the Power Pod 740 sounds and its overall performance! The Sem 715 speakers are high quality and compliment the Power Pod 740 Mixer very well; I plan on getting 2 more of the SEM 715 to be used as stage speakers and 2 Sem 710 to use as floor monitors which will make the system complete.This PA system is really nice for gigging, the whole band can plug in which is an added convenience because you are spending less time lugging around and setting up heavy Guitar,Bass and keyboard amps and enjoying more time Jamming
I purchased this unit about a month ago. I have a Contemp. Jazz & Gospel Show and an "Ol Skool Funk" show and I am very pleased. I am so happry I am already looking to upgrade for more power. Not that this system can't handle it. I'm just greedy! I'm using the Motif ES6 and also running a talkbox when doing my tribute to Roger Troutman. Great deal for the price.
