Take the show with you! The Alesis TransActive Mobile PA system is the ideal solution for traveling troubadours, outdoor occasions and public presentations. Its portability and versatility make it a great decision for all small-scale public address uses.

Built-In Rechargeable Battery

One of the biggest impediments to most portable PA systems is the need for a power source. As anybody who's needed a system in a variety of outdoor venues can tell you, searching for an available outlet can really kill the party before it gets started. Keeping this in mind, the good folks at Alesis included a built-in rechargeable battery with over 6 hours of battery life at full volume. It's a no-risk solution for your next gig or speaking engagement - and with the TransActive's built-in battery indicator, you can always be aware of how long you've got left before you need to charge it next.

Travel-Friendly Features

Many portable systems can be a pain to transport, with heavy weight and the need to set up speakers, power, and mixer separately. The TransActive complete system, however, manages to keep it simple by putting all of its features in a single easily transported unit. The onboard power amp provides 15 watts RMS to a 5 inch speaker with additional high-frequency driver. This two-way system helps you keep both bass and high end well defined, no matter what you're using it for. The system also has a built-in retractable handle and flight-case rollers, so even at its light weight you won't throw out your back bringing it over from the car. Additionally, its heavy duty aluminum construction will help keep you rocking through the most rigorous outdoor performances.

Versatile Functionality

The TransActive system, beyond its portability and quality of construction, is unsurpassed for ease of use and versatility. It includes a balanced XLR/TRS combo jack for microphones or balanced instruments, a standard 1/4 inch input for guitars and similar instruments, and an RCA connection for a host of other audio sources. Each of these three channels includes its own gain (volume) dial, with a master volume dial to control everything. Since it's most often used to amplify the voice, the people at Alesis included a high-quality dynamic vocal microphone and XLR cable so you're ready to rock right out of the box. In addition, if you want to keep the party going between sets, the TransActive features an integrated iPod dock for easy music access. The TransActive dock can also be used to charge the iPod via a switch in the back, to save on the battery of either device. The PA also includes an integrated pole mount if you'd like to put it up on a stand for better projection. Finally, if you've got another amplified system nearby, you can send a feed from your TransActive and expand your sound.

Note: This product uses a 30-pin Apple dock connector.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Working great for me"
Overall: Been using the Transactive for small club gig. Power is just right for the small bar that I play to... using the iPod connection works wonders for me as I produce BG bass and drum tracks to play with on stage. Have had it for about a year now and there have been no breakdowns as of yet. Wheels are great for my aging back! This product is probably a godsend. I'm glad I purchased it for the application it's used for.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
