If you're looking for a portable, powerful PA system that's easy to use and easy to transport, take a look at the Yamaha STAGEPAS 400i. Ideal for anything from acoustic combos to dancehall DJ's to spoken word performers, this compact PA delivers outstanding sound in any environment.
The 400i has everything you need in a portable PA.
This all-in-one PA system consists of two lightweight speakers and a detachable mixer, along with one pair of speaker cables and a power cord. In a remarkably smart bit of design, all this great gear fits together into one neat package that's light enough to be carried by hand. Setup is quick, easy, and intuitive – even for inexperienced users – so the STAGEPAS 400i is ideal for church or school functions where a variety of people might be setting up the system.
Fiddling with the mix isn't the fun part of performing, so the 8-channel STAGEPAS 400i mixer is designed to help you get the sound you want with minimal stress. One knob controls the SPX digital reverb, which lets you choose between four settings. You also get one-knob control over the 2-band EQ, so whether you're giving a speech, playing a show, or DJ-ing a wedding reception, it's easy to get just the right sound for the gig.
The onboard feedback suppressor – a feature usually found on high-end equipment – lets you get rid of annoying feedback with the touch of a button. And the handy iPod/iPhone connection gives you quality playback, while charging the device. Extra outputs mean you can expand your system (or add a monitor system) with additional powered speakers or a subwoofer, so the STAGEPAS 400i gives you plenty of room to grow.
With the mixer supplying 400 watts of power, the speakers have all the juice they need to fill a reasonably-sized room with sound. Thanks to Yamaha's digital signal processing (DSP), the sound will be distortion-free, even when you really crank it up. The DSP has built-in limiter circuits, so you'll get years of use out of your STAGEPAS 400i without worrying about accidentally blowing the speakers.
A few years ago, I purchased a STAGEPAS 300, and I used it about 4 or 5 times a week. I play me bass guitar through it, and also use the other inputs for keyboard and vocals. After hundreds of hours of use, something shook loose, and it quit. I'm sure it can be repaired, but I needed a replacement quickly,and purchased the STAGEPAS 400i - receiving it only 5 days later. Since then I probably have about 20 hours on the new unit, and I love it. The added monitor outputs are a great addition.
Simple and straight forward, my family has loan it to our Church for their weekly meetings. I show them one time how to hook it and they love it.
Pros: Works great and set up is no problem
Cons: Should have bought it earlier
Purchased this product for use at my wedding. The singer and operator as well as myself are quite impressed with this set up. Good job Yamaha! Thanks Crutchfield for knowledgeable staff!

Hi-Z Switch & Phantom Power: The Hi-Z switch allows a passive pickup instrument to be connected hassle-free, without a direct box to input channel 4. You'll be able to connect and acoustic-electric guitar to enjoy high-quality performance with low distortion. Phantom power for input channels 1-2 (+30V) allows you to connect condenser microphones directly to STAGEPAS 400i to get the best sound quality possible. It also means you won't have to worry about DI boxes losing their charge during a performance.
Monitor & Subwoofer Out: Expand your front-of-house system or set up a monitoring system by using the STAGEPAS 400i together with other powered speakers such as Yamaha's DXR lineup (sold separately). Add more bottom end to your system by connecting a powered subwoofer such as the Yamaha DXS Series (sold separately). Simply plugging in a subwoofer will assign a high-pass filter to the STAGEPAS 400i speakers automatically.
EQ & Level Control: The Yamaha STAGEPAS 400i is equipped with a 1-knob Master EQ & level dial, as well as a 2-Band EQ and level dial for each channel.
Note: A level meter, consisting of five LEDs, shows the level of output signal from the STAGEPAS 400i's speaker outputs (L/R).
SPX Digital Reverb (optional Reverb Footswitch): One knob gives you access to four different high-quality reverb settings (Hall, Plate, Room, Echo); perfect for vocals and acoustic instruments. Simply turn the knob to change the reverb type and time, and then you're ready to apply just the right amount of high-resolution effect to each channel. For hands-free control of your reverb, connecting an optional footswitch (sold separately) allows you to turn the reverb on and off instantly; perfect for MC-ing events or speaking during solo performances.
Feedback Suppressor: Avoid the uncomfortable feedback that plagues so many sound reinforcement novices and professionals alike. Usually found only on high-end gear, this intelligent function removes feedback automatically with the push of a button, giving you a clear, professional sound.
iPod/iPhone Connectivity: Connect your iPod/iPhone using a USB cable to play music and charge the iPod/iPhone. Use the "LEVEL" control of channels 7/8 to adjust the volume, since the music signals are mixed to those channels. This connector supplies 5V power to the connected USB device. This connector does not support digital audio playback from USB devices other than the iPod/iPhone. For playback of such devices, use appropriate stereo minijack or RCA connectors.
