Product Description

As either a standalone powered personal vocal monitor or the main unit for a multiple monitor system, nothing can match the compact and powerful Galaxy Hot Spot PA5X140. The on-board power amp of the PA5X140 produces an unbelievable 140 watts RMS (4 ohms), enough to power its internal speaker and up to 2 additional Galaxy Hot Spot VC Personal Monitors (or any other 8-ohm speaker). Its 114 dB maximum sound pressure level is louder than most systems many times its size and with a frequency response of 200Hz to 18kHz (sensitivity 98 dB (1 watt/1 meter), the PA5X140 delivers unsurpassed intelligibility, superior gain before feedback, and can cut through the most extreme stage volume levels. The PA5X140 features both 1/4 in. and XLR inputs (24-volt phantom power), a 3-band equalizer, and Galaxy's custom designed ferro fluid cooled 5 in. driver with a very beefy 40-ounce magnet structure. The PA5X140's very tough ABS molded cabinet features a rugged black cast aluminum faceplate/grille for added protection and the tilt-back design of the PA5X140 allows for either floor or mic stand placement in close proximity to the performer (the closer to the performer the lower the stage volume needed and the less likely it is to cause feedback or interfere with the house mix).

All Hot Spots, both powered and unpowered, have a built-in microphone stand mount; just slide the microphone stand into the receptacle on the bottom of the Hot Spot. Some microphone stands may require an adaptor (SA-1 microphone stand adaptor sold separately).

4 out of 5 (51 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "We've conerted to these near-field monitors, and will never switch back."
Sound: Our band almost didn't buy this system because of the reviews -- sounds crappy, etc. We were realistic in our expectations, and did not expect it to really pump out the kick drum or bass with this tiny speaker. It sounds GREAT to us, a 3-piece acoustic rock-n-roll folk band (Dog Mountain Band). Nice highs and mids, weak bass (of course, its not a 15 inch driver!) We drive 2 of the passive Galaxy monitors with it. When special guests join us, they rave about how good the sound on stage is. Near field monitors are a great new idea, and our entire monitor system fits in a suitcase...that was a big part of the decision to spend $600 on this system. We were tired hauling around 3 big floor monitors for our little band, and we are absolutely sold on near field monitors now. I'm guessing that the folks who think this monitor sounds crappy are rock n rollers who have already blown out their ears with floor monitors and have to turn it up too loud. ;~) We're acoustic, and think it sounds great. Feature: XLR and 1/4" inputs with separate gain, 3 band EQ, easy mounting on a mic stand. You can use it as a micro PA for intimate venues too -- this unit for power, driving up to 2 passive near field Galaxy monitors. We've tried this once off a 4-channel passive mixer, and it worked like a charm. You can drive more of these powered units as satellites, with them driving their own passive satellites. Ease of Use: Our ONLY complaint is that this unit is much louder than the 2 passive satllite monitors from Galaxy, even when the passive ones are turned up full. We wish there was a way to get more volume from the satellite ones, to match this one, or lower the volume on this one. So 2 of us share this one, our drummer gets a satellite monitor, and any guests get the 3rd one. Quality: Heavy, solid, thermoplastic body that takes dings well. We torture these things. I've dropped it twice, it's HEAVY. No problems. The satellites are light, but this thing needs a sturdy mic stand. Value: Kinda pricey. But not many options out there. We'll never switch back to floor monitors, and they are pricey too. Manufacturer Support: Had a couple questions while putting the system together, and emails were answered same day. The Wow Factor: If you've never tried near field monitors, you should. Rent or borrow some. It's a very different experience on stage. For our small acoustic band, it's perfect. For a loud rock n roll band, your mileage may vary. Our band split buyning our PA. One guy buoght the amp head, the other bought the Mains, I bought the monitors. We have to set up our own part of the system for every show. Now I carry my part in a suitcase, and get it set up in 10 minutes! Overall: We love the entire system.

"Packs a punch"
Sound: It may be small but it's powerful as heck. The only problem I came to was when I plug my laptop to it, it sounded bad. I tried making my laptop output mono and it sounded perfect! Piano, sounds good, Ipod sounds good, vocals sound good. I haven't tested my guitar to it yet. Feature: I wish that track one and two were combo plugs so I had the option of plugging in one of the 3 combinations of XLR and Phone Cable. I'm happy that it does have one XLR and one phone at least. Ease of Use: Plug and play Quality: I think it will last forever. I've literally just dropped it, (by mistake of course), and it's fine. Value: The thing is, I like music gear that is good and doesn't cost so much. I might maybe 200-250 for this.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

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