The newest powered model in Galaxy Audio's Hot Spot line since 1998, the PA6S takes full advantage of recent improvements in speaker and amplifier technology, making it the lightest, most powerful, and best-sounding compact PA system Galaxy Audio has ever offered. New features such as the XLR pass-through on each channel allow independent control of mics without affecting the signal sent to the house PA. A -20dB Pad switch on each XLR input ensures that even the hottest signals will be accepted without overdriving the inputs. An additional 1/8" Line input on Channel 2 will accept stereo or mono signals from sources such as tape or digital medial players as well as line level instruments.
While the PA6S has been redesigned from the ground up, Galaxy Audio has kept the basics. The freshly designed outer shell retains the distinctive shape of the original Hot Spot, but with a 21st Century look. The cabinet now uses two specially designed speaker components, the new 155-watt NEOLITE 6.5" woofer and Galaxy Audio's highly efficient 1.5" 60-watt tweeter.
The PA6S's two-way speaker system gives it a much wider frequency response than earlier models. This means that full-range music such as keyboards or backing tracks will come through with solid bass and crisp highs. This enhanced frequency response makes the PA6S a great standalone PA system for small club gigs as well as lectures and A/V presentations. Plus, a simple adjustment of the 3-band EQ can alter the response for singers who love the time-honored accentuated midrange of the classic Hot Spot vocal monitor. The PA6S gives you the best of both worlds.
The built-in 170-watt amplifier inside the PA6S is designed to handle the most demanding audio situations. This high-tech Class D amplifier produces plenty of power to cover a wide variety of applications. It allows the PA6S to function both as a standalone PA system and as a high-powered vocal monitor to cut through loud stage volumes. For larger gigs that require more coverage, you may simply patch from the Preamp Output to the main house PA, while using the PA6S as your onstage monitor.
The PA6S also features a built-in 18dB Compressor/Limiter circuit with Compressor and Clip LEDs. The compressor acts to smooth out transient peaks in the signals, thus improving overall sound quality and increasing apparent volume. The Limiter helps protect the woofer and tweeter from being damaged by amplifier distortion. The Clip LED indicates when a reduction in volume is recommended.
