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.
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.
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
Bought this system about a month ago. For the price I didn't expect much. Right out of the box I was highly impressed. Had more sound than I will ever need for my personal use. Sound clarity, tone and quality exceeded my hopes for the price. Included phonic mic has a good sound with little feedback. This little system has plenty of volume with low noise and an incredible crisp and clean tone. EFX are pretty good only complaint is that it does not appear that they are assignable. Overall I would recommend this little, big sounding system to anyone. Great Value !!!! Thanks Phonic
You cannot find a package deal that packs this much quality in a PA system for the price. I bought this for use as small venue karaoke system and it works fantastic. Plenty of power if the master volume is cranked up high and the input levels on the mics are on the low side. I am very happy with my Phonic. Havn't had it very long now so I hope it stands the test of time but for this price I would defintely recommend it as a first time PA. I usually only need one speaker connected in bridged mode due to a smaller space that it's used in. The UM-99 mic isn't bad either. I use a Shure Beta58A as the main mic and the UM-99 as the secondary mic.
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.
The Phonic Power Pod 740D/SEM715 is an ecellent PA system. Vocals are clear and mine had to work as the Bass AMP one night, I was surprised that it not only sounded good but it did not distort. You have to keep some distance because you will get feedback. Have a 50ft line at least. I have worked with a PEAVY PA before and this system compares to it, except you save big bucks.
I just bought one of these and have had it for just over a week. It is very loud and clear. Not a lot of feedback. The effects are very soft. You can barely hear the difference with most of them so if you plan to play guitar through this and need effects you will probably need a pedal. It is beautiful and has handled everything I've thrown at it.
I purchased the phonic 740 D with the 15 inch speakers. Very good quality for the price! Plenty of power and range for jamming, definately gig quality in a smaller club however we are old boys and just rock out in the studio for our own pleasure...this unit has performed well and at the fraction of the price of high end units. Buy it now before the price jumps!
I got this system not too long ago (maybe around a month and a half ago). I really was in need of a PA system instead of using my 2 speaker guitar amp. I was very pleased with the look and quality and its small weight. Don't be fooled though. These are great if your in some dire need of vocal equipment. It catches everything from my high metal voice solos to my low bass vocal chorus. It catches everything, and without a bunch of feedback ( well make sure you get a 50 ft cord.... you will need it). I also use a SM58 Shure Microphone. Its a nice little set up. So go ahead by all means from my point of view get it. Love the price and the good quality for that price. I recommend this for any vocalist. Oh and it works great when you plug up different mics and a keyboard. It all is great combined together in my opinion. The Phonic PowerPod 740D/SEM715 PA System is worth every penny.
The first thing I realized when I got this system was simply how big it was. This was a positive suprise because before I got it in the mail (the shipping was also very quick) I assumed the speakers would be small and flimsy...wrong! The speakers are huge, about up to my waist. So I unwrapped everything and tried it out, wow. I was really impressed at the low end and the highs, it was the perfect mix. I really also liked the included mic, it was heavy and seemed much higher quality than the other flimsy mics I got through mic stand combos. The powered mixer is pretty confusing, and I don't think that I really understand it yet, but that will come with time. The effects are probably the worst part, they're pretty much pointless. I mean who wants delay on your voice when you're playing a concert?? Also, all 400 effects pretty much sound the same. The power is pretty good, I can easily hear myself over the drums and amps and thats all my band really wanted. I think the system will be good for small shows, great for practice and even good for recording live demos.
ive had this system for about 3 weeks now. my band uses it for vocals and playing music through while taking a break. this system is excellent for what we do. i would possibly even use this for some small shows. it has plenty of power and is extremly clear sounding. overall i would recommend this to anyone looking for a good quality system.
I've used this to practice with my band a few times now and have been extremely impressed with it. With the volume just over half way, my vocals and acoustic guitar sound great over the drums, electric guitar, and bass. The sound is very clear and loud. We just use it for practice, but it would easily handle a small to medium sized venue. I highly recommend this to anyone.
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 '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.
I was looking for a very affordable and self-enclosed system for my son's band, but one that had excellent sound reinforcement and built in effects with significant power to use in small club environment and also use as a monitor or practice studio system for my own professional band. This unit seems to have fit the bill perfectly. Seems road-warrior capable for new practicioners like my kid's band, and also for me as monitor system in major applications. Are there canvass covers available for the former use, to protect against rain damage in transit is my only question. Very highly recommended for price/use ratio. Nice warm sound and internal FX surprisingly versatle.
Only had this unit a few days but I'm very pleased with it. The sound is clean and controls are very user friendly. The effects are better than expected and the volume is there. All in all a great value for the money and fits my purposes perfectly.
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.
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.
This is a GREAT PA if your just starting out. The head mixer is fan cooled ( most are not ) and does not overheat after hours of use. The first thing I did once getting this system was, I tossed the speaker cables and got some heavy duty ones which not only sounds better but, put less of a stain on your power supply. A tape hiss comes from the speakers when not in use and, when mp3`s are played other than that, no complaints.
