Overview

One person can easily handle the Yamaha STAGEPAS 300 Portable PA System. The easy-to-use, ultracompact design incorporates 2 - 2-way loudspeakers, a 6/8-channel (4 mono, 2 stereo) mixer, and dual 150W amplifiers to provide a reliable sound system.

Each speaker contains an 8" woofer and 1" compression driver, driven by an efficient 150W (x2) Class D amplifier. The mixer features balanced XLR connectors, mic/line switches and balanced 1/4" jacks, 2-band channel EQ, and switchable 24-bit digital reverb. RCA connectors with separate level control for a tape recorder or a CD player are conveniently located on the front panel, plus stereo-out and monitor connections.

For added convenience, both high-impact molded speaker enclosures are polemountable with optional ADP138 adapters from Yamaha, and rear compartments house the mixer, cables, mics, and accessories.

I purchased the Yamaha Stagepas 300 Portable PA System because I needed a "Caf? PA" for small gigs. For small to medium sized rooms I had been using a Mackie 808M with a pair of JBL JRX115 cabinets but that setup was overkill for gigs like coffee shops and bookstores. Not only is that stuff heavy to lug around but it scares owners of small venues. To save my back and not scare caf? owners I wanted a smaller setup. I have used a Fender Passport P-250 system belonging to a friend and really liked it but I was hoping for something smaller. I checked the Kustom Profile One and Profile Two and B-52 Matrix 200 and both are good but the Stagepas 300 won out. It is the smallest of the lot and has excellent sound and is most portable of all. It's not perfect (see below) but it's small and sounds surprisingly good. The first thing you notice is that, unlike comparable PA's, there are only two pieces. The mixer locks into a slot behind one of the speakers, which are smaller than the Fender, Kustom, or B-52 speakers. The mixer is tiny, about the size of two stacked hardback books, but it has four channels with mic (XLR) and line inputs, a stereo channel with two ?" line inputs and RCA inputs, and a stereo channel with two RCA inputs. The four XLR channels have mic/line and reverb switches and all channels have high and low EQ knobs. There is a master volume and speech/music EQ switch. There are two powered ?" output jacks for the system speakers and two unpowered ?" outputs for monitors with a separate monitor volume control. Set up was easy. It took more time to get both speakers out of the box than to set everything up. The sound has surprisingly good bass for such a small package. I set up two mics, one vocal and one condenser for guitar, and got a decent sound immediately. A little tweaking and the sound & volume is perfect for small rooms. I was able to get a natural guitar sound with the mic and come pretty close using another guitar with a piezo bridge pickup (though I still prefer a pre-amp with EQ). Take down was just as easy. The mixer goes back into one of the speakers. The other speaker has a compartment that easily held the speaker & power cables and an XLR cable. The Stagepas 300 has a lot of pros but now the cons: the built-in reverb is a joke. It's more of a dripping slapback. Why Yamaha bothered to include such a useless reverb is a mystery. You could route one of the monitor outs through a stand-alone reverb and run it back into an input channel but the point of a caf? PA is simplicity & size. A simple digital spring-style reverb would have been perfect. My other gripe is that the speakers lack built-in stand mounts. Yamaha sells inexpensive mounts that attach via screws but with the mounts installed the speakers cannot be stood on end. With the stands mounted you must use speaker stands or lay the speakers sideways. (Or bring a screwdriver to install & remove the stands.) Since you can't depend on the venue having a place to set the speakers at the right height you're stuck dealing with external stand mounts. Finally, the guy at the store told me that the Stagepas 300 came with a case like the Kustom and B-52 but that isn't true. Yamaha sells one but it's a $100 accessory. The speakers have built-in handles on top that make them easy to carry but it would be nice to roll everything in with one trip. I'm thinking I might be able to find a rolling suitcase at a discount store that would work. If you want a small, good sounding caf? PA and don't need reverb or integral speaker stand mounts the Yamaha Stagepas 300 is a great deal. It isn't likely to get the vocals over a metal band but for small rooms at low volume it's great for live and DJ gigs.

Good system but fan is loud and prone to failure

I have had this system for several years and after the second fan went bad, I gave up and bought a small powered mixer (not Yamaha) to use with the speakers.

Great Product but don't buy from Guitar Center

By Mark Magee

from Englewood Ohio

Brought the unit home tonight and works and sounds great but don't buy this from Guitar Center. Much betters deals are available online. I bought this from the Dayton Ohio store and the experience was a nightmare. Spent two hours getting the system ordered from them and then they ordered the wrong system for me when I went to pick it up. The price had dropped $100 on the system from the day I first ordered it and I feel the PA I traded in on the system was basically stolen from me. I live 25 miles from the store and will end up making three trips to get things worked out. This will be my last purchase from Guitar Center! Buy online and save yourself the aggravation of a bad store and poor service!!!

Good quality for a small package

By Christopher Thelen

from Gurnee, IL

Whenever I have a smaller DJ gig that doesn't really call for my lugging out the big speakers, I use this setup. I like that it has its own built-in mixer (though it doesn't offer a whole lot of room for expansion), the speakers are lightweight so I can easily travel with them, and despite their smaller size, they do pack a nice punch in terms of audio quality. I've had this particular set now for about 10 months, and it's proven to be reliable and durable to this point. If I had to select one negative, it's that you have to spend an additional $20 to get brackets for the speakers - but this is not a huge investment. It's also not a "waterproof" system (though what really is?) - I won't set it up if there's a threat of inclement weather, and prefer to use it indoors. I still rely on my JBL EONs and Mackie mixer for the big jobs or when I need the volume to cover a greater distance, but for small gigs where I'm either cramped for space or I don't need to rattle people's fillings, this has worked quite well, and has been well worth the investment.

Great Little System!!!

By David S. Moore

from Goshen, IN

I play old-school finger-picking blues instrumentals. I wanted to start playing alone so I started shopping for a PA system. After several weeks of looking, I bought this one. Perfect! It's compact and easy to learn how to use - very simple. I bought myself some speaker stands, a mike stand, a mike for my guitar, + a couple mike cable and I was ready to roll. The system is perfect for small venues like coffee shops - where I perform mainly. I'm sure it will work fine in small bars or clubs. The only problem was when I went to mount the speakers. I got a pair of free speaker mounts with the stands that I bought separately - but they did not give me the screws! I contacted Yamaha, and they sent me some within a couple of weeks. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable, but solid PA system.

Nice system!

By Dave

from Tennessee

I really like this little system! Compact, very portable and good quality sound. I use it prodominately for wedding ceremonies where there is no sound amplification available (outdoors,etc.) Easily set up and taken down, it fits my needs and allows me to provide an additional service for my clients.

Simply Perfect

By Ty.P.O.

from Leander, Texas

Some say that simplicity in music can make great songs. Well I think that a similar rule applies here. Such a simple, compact set up, but with so much power and clarity it's... simply perfect! The salesman at GC showed me lots of different PA packages to choose from, but kept saying that this one is the best bang for your buck. The reverb on it is just enough, and doesn't sound like you're in a closet. BUY BUY BUY!

Great product!

By Fran McMahon

from Binghamton NY

I have to say, I was a bit concerned when I opened the box and saw the size of the unit. I also thought I had missed something seeing that it only took me around 5 minutes to get the whole unit assembled. My concerns were gone shortly after I turned it on. I couldn�ۡ���t believe the sound quality and volume this thing had! To give it the ultimate test, I used it for a karaoke gig at the club I play at on Fridays. This unit put out ample volume and bass. The owner of the club was equally impressed. The lack of speaker mounts and the strange reverb (more of an echo) effect were minor setbacks; but I would trade those any day for the overall performance of this system. I�ۡ���ve used the mixer for some recording on my laptop with a good deal of success as well. The storage compartments in the back of the speakers are very convenient too. All I can say to anyone looking to buy a PA for DJ, KJ, or a small band, look no further than this system.

Greatest purchase this year..

By jeffrey

from austin, tx

I bought this PA about a month ago for coffee shop gigs and house concerts. I play with a mic'd nylon string guitar, so I always deal with issues of feedback. This PA has been a god-send. Virtually zero feedback, great sound, ample volume, small and light. The mixer can be attached to a mic stand with an optional attachment -- well worth the extra few bucks. If you're looking for a small solo performance PA-- your search has ended.

Good System

By benjamin

from oak ridge, TN

This thing was better then i thought it would be. Great clear sound, and simple to use. You can set it up in under 10 min, and take it down in the same amount of time. The only thing is that the STAGEPAS is made for rooms that are no more then 80 to 100 feet long. anything bigger and you have to get a bigger system. But still a Great system.

A Great System for blues or jazz too!!!

By Commander "D"

from chicago

My band just used this Yamaha PA at Sox Park in Chicago (an outdoor concert) and this PA system really got the job done. It was loud and clear and cut over the guitars, drums, and keyboard. We did not use or need monitors. This is a great system and proves you do not need to spend thousands of dollars. I heartily recommend this small Yamaha system, it made a believer out of me!
