    Comments about Fender Passport Conference 175W Portable PA System:

    Overall I really like this product. I bought one for my work and we use it frequently for speaking and playing music. Also, some people sing with the music and we usually have a good time using it. Like I said in the title, I would recommend it for entertaining smaller to medium sized crowds. I hosted a work party tonight with about 40 people and it did a good job.
    It comes with a mic that works fine but we also purchased a wireless mic that comes in handy. The passport has auxiliary port which makes it easy to hook up your devices. I really think it's cool how it folds up like a suitcase and carrys fairly easy. I can hide it neatly under my desk and its not too heavy to transport.
    I don't have a lot of complaints about the passport. Maybe they could have made the storage container a little bigger to accommodate the mic and all of the wires. Right now it comes with the storage compartment and it only holds 80% of what you need. It just seems a little silly going that far but not far enough to hold everything.
    Overall, this is great for smaller events. Just don't expect too much out of it. If you need to disturb your neighbors get a bigger system. I would definitely recommend it in the office setting where you need something simple. However, this product offers a little versatility with multiple channels and the auxiliary input for multiple mics and inputting music. I just think its neat because you can use it for practical purposes yet have fun too.

    Comments about Fender Passport Conference 175W Portable PA System:

    I bought these for bar and backyard band performances. They get the job done. They set up easily, the sound quality per dollar is incredible. They won't blow down the neighborhood, but you can throw an amazing concert for sure. After a year of use, they're still going strong.

      We use this product for hosting trivia. The sound quality seems to be good thus far. It is easy to pack up and store out of the way and has everything we need for casual speaking uses.

        There is no effect system. So I can only use it for speech. It is also too heavy.

        Great for outdoor events (speaking/limited music use) -- settings don't let you add reverb or much else other than volume and tone, but extremely useful for what I bought it for.

        Comments about Fender Passport Conference 175W Portable PA System:

        What happened to The Fender Passport 150. I was one of the first to ever have the Fender Passport 150 bought about 18 years ago. I turned on about 100 professionals to using it. After 18 years it finally blew out. My purchase of the new replacement 175 Conference is a weak substandard version. Doesn't have nearly the the same umph! My 150 I never went above 1/2 way on master. Now with the Conference I have to go all the way to get a mediocre less powerful sound. Why do companies have to keep messing with perfection. Shame on Fender and their CEO for allowing this to happen. I'm searching for a competitive product.
