Line Array Speakers
Line array technology is the reason why the Profile is able to deliver great sound with deeper penetration into the listening audience than conventional speaker systems.

Line array technology focuses read more sound energy where it is needed.

Additionally, the use of two speakers in a line array results in a 6db increase in SPL (sound pressure level) or greater volume.

The Profile System One speaker cabinets are equipped with an internal 1 in. (25mm) pole mount cup for use with 1 in. speaker stands.

The Profile mixer is equipped with internal 5/8 threads for mounting on the optional KPSSS100 stand or with a trifold microphone stand.

XLR Inputs with Phantom Power
These inputs are designed for low-impedance microphones or equipment that has a mic-level, balanced output (often called a direct out).

Also these XLR inputs are phantom powered. Phantom power is a small amout of power that is necessary when using most condenser mics. Condenser mics allow you to capture frequencies that are unachievable by most dynamic mics. Most condenser mic require either an internal battery or an expensive adapter. The Profile System One mixer provides 15-volts of power the the XLR jacks which will not cause damage to any dynamic or non-condenser microphone.

"Portable meets powerful in a quality product that is meant for the road."
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars
I will probably use this until it's dead or I get a big fat check from someone for a nicer portable system. (For my big dances I do have a true DJ rig).

Sound
For the size of the speakers the quality that comes out of that little system is amazing.

Features
You can't get any better than this product for $450. It is just impossible. I use this two to three times every week and can't believe how reliable it is. It also travels really well with it's included travel rolling bag. I would say that the most useful feature is the volume for the auxilliary audio jacks that are separate from the main. I use this feature in taching my dance classes as I can turn it up separately from my wireless headset mics. Then it becomes a really nice as an all in one DJ kit. I have my computer plugged through it, I hit my playlist and everyone is dancing.

Ease of Use
This thing is a breeze. Super simple set-up and tear down. It takes me 10 minutes to set up and 5 to tear it down.

Quality
I beat this thing up. Like I said, I use it two to three times a week every week and it keeps going. I have had it for over two years now and it is just fantastic.

Value
I would never have expected something that cost me $450 to last as long as this thing has. I am very impressed in the quality and workmanship that has gone into this system. I may have read more to upgrade sometime soon to the profile 2

Manufacturer Support
No opinion, I haven't had to use service.

The Wow Factor
It does look great. It is really very nice and smooth, looks great set up on a table or on it's stands. (That is probably the only complaint about the product is the proprietary stands).

Musical Background:
Active Musician, Choral Director, Swing Dance Instructor
