Yamahas STAGEPAS 300 has already become the portable PA system of choice for legions of musicians on the move, and now the STAGEPAS 500 is available for situations in which a little extra power and channel capacity is needed.
The basics remain the same: an incredibly lightweight, portable, easy-to-use PA system consisting of a pair of high-performance speakers with a built-in powered mixer. You can be set up and playing in a matter of minutes, and then packed away and on the road again with the same ease and speed when you’re done. And all of this is provided with no compromise in sound quality or versatility, plus some advanced features you normally would expect to find in systems in this class.
Getting great sound for live performance used to be a big deal. Now all you need is a STAGEPAS 300 or STAGEPAS 500! Whichever system you choose, you have a high-performance live-sound system that will deliver your music or message wherever you go, indoors or out.
High-performance 2-way Passive Speakers
STAGEPAS 300 speakers feature 8 woofers and 1 high-frequency units, while the STAGEPAS 500 speakers have 10 woofers and 1 high-frequency units. Both types deliver clean, high-quality sound.
Conveniently store cables, microphones, and other small necessities in the speaker accessory compartment for a truly streamlined travelling system.
Optional Microphone Stand Adaptor
The STAGEPAS mixer can be mounted on a microphone stand using the optional BMS-10A adaptor for convenient positioning at any height.
Dual 250-Watt amplifiers
Two 250-watt power amplifiers can fill surprisingly large clubs or rooms, or project your sound over a considerable distance outdoors. The class-D power amplifier has been painstakingly designed to deliver superior sound quality as well as reliability in a remarkably compact unit.
Versatile 10-channel Mixer with Monitor and Record Outputs
If there are more members in your band than the STAGEPAS 300s 8 input channels can handle, or you simply have a lot of sources to mix, the STAGEPAS 500 gives you 10 input channels in all: four mono microphone/line inputs and three stereo line inputs. The additional stereo channel can used for either a stereo or mono source. In addition to the main speaker outputs the mixer has line outputs that can be used to connect additional powered speakers for monitoring, and to send the mixer's output to a recording device.
Phantom Power for High—performance Condenser Microphones
The STAGEPAS 500 mixer features switchable phantom power for the four microphone/line inputs. This lets you use high-performance phantom-powered condenser microphones in situations where you want the extended, natural response they provide.
Built-in Channel Compression/Limiting
Channels 1 and 2 feature LIMIT/COMP switches that let you apply either limiting or compression to those channels. Limiting can be useful to prevent input overload and distortion with sources that have a wide dynamic range, while compression can add punch to vocals, bass, guitar, and other sources while smoothing out the sound and helping it to ride better in the mix.
2-band Channel EQ and Reverb
Like the STAGEPAS 300 mixer, the STAGEPAS 500 mixer has 2-band EQ controls on each channel, as well as REVERB switches on channels 1 through 4. A separate REVERB level control adjusts the reverb mix.
• XLR and phone-jack inputs on mono channels, and phone-jack and RCA pin- jack inputs on stereo channels allow connection to a wide range of sources
• MIC/LINE switches select microphone or line level input matching for channels 1 through 4
• Auto Limiter prevents overload damage to power amplifier and speakers.
• LED output level meter
• Speaker cables supplied
• Optional BMS-10A Mic Stand Adaptor for the mixer unit
• The STAGEPAS 500 speakers can be stand mounted without standard speaker stand adapters
The built-in high-quality reverb is indispensable for great vocal sound, and on the STAGEPAS 500 system the LIMIT/COMP switch can help to deliver smooth, punchy vocal sound.
The STAGEPAS mixer has more than enough input capability to directly handle a range of instruments from electric-acoustic guitars to electronic keyboards.
The "SPEECH" mode optimises the system settings for maximum clarity with speech. Of course, background music from a CD player or other source can be mixed in with the spoken performance.
Multiple microphone inputs make the STAGEPAS systems a good choice for band rehearsals or performances. MSR100 powered monitors (sold separately) can be added for monitoring.
