Here's a deceptive little speaker from Mackie, pumping out a massive 150W out of its snack-sized speaker.

Our Verdict

A handy, portable PA solution.

For

  • Very portable. Loud!

Against

  • Lacking in the low register.
Buying options

This shoebox-sized, portable PA has two combined quarter-inch inputs and a phono input. There's a Hi-Z instrument switch and phantom power.

Around the back there are line-level XLR ins and outs for chaining units together. The unit can be fitted to a mic stand for really useful placement when used as stage or DJ foldback. The 3-band EQ keeps things tuned accordingly - and best of all, it goes really loud.

There's obviously no real low-end but for a compact portable solution, it's crystal clear and really usable. Even though it's portable, there are a lot of good monitoring options competing in this price range.
