Fender’s four new Passport systems—the 500 PRO, 300 PRO, 150 PRO and EXECUTIVE—are being presented at the NAMM show.
The Passport 500 PRO, 300 PRO and 150 PRO systems have more natural-sounding reverb; each has an improved mixer and control layout with a clean new look and recessed LEDs; each speaker enclosure has standard 35mm stand sockets and each system is actually more affordable than its earlier version, according to the company. The 300 and 500 models boast a sub-out line, and the 500 model includes USB playback and record features.
The Passport EXECUTIVE is described as “an ideal sound system for the mobile presenter on the go; perfect for meetings, seminars, tours and presentations”. About the size of a small briefcase, it’s designed to be easy to use, easy to move and easy to set up, all of which make it a compact and efficient solution to many different small-group audio support needs.
It has 100 watts of clear stereo sound through state-of-the-art NXT flat-panel speaker technology, all in a slim, lightweight design that slips easily into its included laptop-style form-fitted travel bag.
