What do you want to be? The singer-songwriter, breaking hearts at the local coffee house? The fitness instructor that's always got the perfect mix-CD for a high-energy class? The Business professional that makes a name for themselves with the perfect presentation? Whatever you end up doing, you're going to need to be heard, and the Fender Passport Portable PA systems are the easiest, most convenient, and best-sounding way to amplify your voice, you music, and your ideas. While Fender has many Passport models, from light and compact to big and powerful, the Fender PD250PLUS has the right blend of volume, clarity, features, delivering self-contained amplification for any situation.
Everything You Need
The one thing no one wants is to be the A/V club president, hunched over that loaded-down equipment cart, keeping track of all the necessary components and connectors, fumbling to get everything connected in time for the big event. With the Passport PD250PLUS, setup couldn't be easier. Absolutely everything you'll need is included with the Passport, and everything folds up into a single-piece that can be easily carried with one hand. The Passport combines the main PA system components, a mixer and a power amplifier, into one core unit. The other most important part of a PA is the speakers (also included), and they attach firmly to the center mixing unit for transport. Not only does this all-in-one concept save on setup time and make portage easy, but Fender made sure that every piece of the PD250 system is perfectly matched and calibrated to one another. No worrying about whether your speaker enclosures are the correct impedance and power handling for your amplifier, or trying to figure out Ohm's law to make sure you're not going to blow your system. The Passport has everything figured out for you--it's a truly plug-and-play PA. And when we say "everything you need," we mean everything
. All necessary power and speaker wires are included and fit neatly into the back of the mixer for storage. . . there's even a high-quality microphone included that's perfectly-suited for both singing and spoken word. Finally, the PD250PLUS has the added bonus of a built-in CD player. You've got instant accompaniment to your workouts, underscoring for you presentations, or background music for you to take a break between sets. And with that CD player built-in, there's no fussing with wires or fooling with headphone output volume; the entire Passport system is complete and ready to go at a moment's notice.
Power And Clarity
Ease-of-setup is nice, but the main goal here is to be heard. The powerful PD250PLUS boasts 250 watts of power. It's enough wattage to address or entertain groups of up to 500 people, all without having to contend with distorted music or indistinct vocals. The Passport achieves an unrivaled sonic fidelity thanks to its perfectly-matched power amp and speaker system, but also because of the design of the speaker enclosures themselves. Each of the two cabinets features two 5.5-inch woofers for low- and mid-range frequencies and two 2.75-inch tweeters for higher-frequency reproduction. The dual-woofers provide power and punch for music, while the tweeters keep vocals crisp and articulate. The design also provides wide sound coverage, so that no matter where your audience is, you can be sure they'll hear you.
Flexibility For Any Situation
The mixer layout on the Passport 250 is simple, but effective. The first four mono channels are suitable for microphones or instrument inputs, and the linked 5th and 6th channels can accept stereo instruments, like keyboards and DJ gear, or a second auxiliary input, like audio from a computer or MP3 player. It's got plenty of channels for small acoustic groups with multiple instruments, or presentations with multiple speakers and audio sources. Each channel has its own equalization controls to sweeten the sound of individual instruments or voices, and there's a master EQ that makes it easy to find and eliminate feedback in any space. The PD250PLUS even sports a digital effects section. If you're feeling adventurous, why not experiment with the on-board reverb? It's amazing how such a simple effect can add professional sheen to sung melodies and acoustic guitar. All the controls are clearly labeled and intuitively arranged, so even if you're a live-sound novice, you'll be sculpting your mix with the confidence of a seasoned pro.
Every aspect of the Fender Passport was designed to make your amplified life easier. From transport to setup to operation, the PD250PLUS nearly operates itself! With plenty of power, crystal audio clarity and self-explanatory controls, the only challenge in owning your Passport 250 will be deciding what you want to use it for!
