Overview: The Fender Passport Conference is a portable and
versatile audio system designed for small to medium-sized audiences. It includes
a powered mixer and two full-range speakers that conveniently snap together for
suitcase-style portability making it ideal for meetings, seminars, sporting
events, and for gigs at small clubs and coffeehouses. The Conference features a five channel mixer
with nine inputs: Three XLR, five 1/4" TS, an 1/8" stereo jack, as well as an
1/8" stereo line (headphone) output. The built-in amplifier provides a total of
175 watts of power, 85 watts per speaker @4Ω,
for clear reliable sound.
Front Panel: All of the Conference's inputs are located on the front

Channels 4/5 are configured as a stereo/dual-mono input with an 1/8" stereo jack
and two 1/4" TS (L/R) jacks. Each of the 4 channel strips has its own Tone and

headphone output has its own Level control and a Master Volume control is
provided for the overall output of the mixer.
