Overview

Fender Passport Series portable PA systems have been in production for quite some time and have undergone numerous refinements. The current version, the Fender CONFERENCE, is the most features-rich version ever produced and reflects the best value yet in easy-to-move sound reinforcement in a middle-sized offering.

The Fender Passport CONFERENCE is a self-contained portable audio system that includes everything you need for great sound anywhere you go. Providing extremely easy operation, the Passport CONFERENCE is perfect for the layperson who needs quality with simple functionality. Carry your Passport as you would a suitcase, and simply flip open the cabinet release latches when you're ready to set it up. Inside you'll discover two full-range speaker cabinets, a powered mixer and all the cables you'll need to get started.

Passport CONFERENCE is ideal for an array of applications, including education, sporting and worship events; meetings, seminars and presentations; and gigs at parties, small clubs and coffeehouses.

      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.

        Comments about Fender Passport CONFERENCE 175W Portable PA System:

        Much more compact and easier-to-manage than my old Harbinger PA. Been waiting 2 years and it was worth it. As a professional Hypnotist, I need something that can entertain 10-100's per event and this does it all (assuming the crowd of 100's is quiet/attentive otherwise the back may have trouble hearing you). As someone who works out the 30 lb system isn't terribly heavy & I love how the 175 watt system conveniently locks together as one main "suitcase" unit. Happy to have this with me on tour and works well with my wireless mic system!
