Great little amp

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Crate TX15 Taxi Battery-Powered Combo Amp:

I wanted a battery powered amp for our upcoming bonfire event since there's no ac power at the fire pit. Looking at the other amps on the market I noticed most are for an electric guitar. This amp has a larger woofer than most of the competition, and a tweeter for the high end. So this is an ideal amp for playing an acoustic guitar or a keyboard through. You have to have external effects if you are planning on playing with any distortion. There is a limiter that compresses the sound so you don't get much distortion even when you turn the volume loud. Mine was a demo model at the store & the battery was bad. Folks, it's not that hard to find a battery. It's the same 12volt 7 amp hour battery that most computer ups power supplies & any alarm system or card access system uses. You should not be paying too much for the battery. You can buy it at any ADI or Grainger store. You will have a hard time getting the screws that secure the battery inside the amp out though, they put a glue on the screws that was impossible to get the screws out with. It's like they planned that the battey wouldn't go bad! I ended up drilling out the screw heads (there are 2) & replacing the screws & nuts to do it. This battery does not like to come back from deep discharge, so don't forget to turn the power off when you're done using the amp!

PA in a single package

By 

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Crate TX15 Taxi Battery-Powered Combo Amp:

The Taxi is a nice little package that lets you get to remote places and get your voice and instrument heard over the noise. It's designed like a multi-speakered cabinet that will accomodate a wide frequency range, so you can plug in a variety of devices. The dual-duty mic or instrument jack is a nice addition to the second 1/4" input. We'll see how long we get on the battery. So far it looks to last for what I would need to entertain the pedestrians long enough so can I can earn a cup of Starbucks before the battery drains.

The Taxi is good for traveling electric music

By 

from Salem, MA

Comments about Crate TX15 Taxi Battery-Powered Combo Amp:

The Taxi has been a great amp for three years now. It's battery has slowly deteriated and it lasts about half as long. I left it running once and drained the battery and didn't stay charged for long, but after a few uses it got back up to where it is now. I take the thing wherever I go and I find I can use it to play through my tv or computer if need be. It's an overall good deal, plus it goes anywhere.
