The Stagepas 500 is a portable PA system that comes with a mixer, amp and 2 separate speaker cabinets. The overall sound with this system is amazing for this price; you will get some really clean sounding deep bass, and crisp highs no matter what style of music you are playing or who is talking. The mixer has 4 microphone preamps and a 2 band EQ. I did want to see them include a 3 Band EQ at the least but I guess I will have to make due with 2 for now. This unit is very heavy to me, it weighs well over 50 pounds and that might not seem like a lot but if you are by yourself taking it to and from places that is more weight than you want to carry. The amp is a 500 watt amp, the mixer has several inputs; 4 XLR, 4 ¼, 2 ¼ and outputs 2 1/4 (Speaker), 2 1/4 , RCA Stereo.

These speakers are well made though and can handle some nicks and dings from getting them in and out of buildings. There is no microphone included with this system so you will need to have one or purchase one separately (I already had one so no need to purchase another).
The sound of this system is the only thing that makes me a happy that the I bought it, I dislike the fact that I get no 3 band EQ and I dislike the fact that there is no headphone output from the mixer/system. But I love the sound and how it projects across the room. The frequency response is great and the preamps are great as well. The price is affordable but I am thinking about upgrading to a different system soon. This is worth it just because of the sound you get, the mixer and specs are not that great but the speakers make it worth the money.
