The Expedition XP115A offers 500 watts of output, more than enough to make yourself heard. The built-in Class D amp delivers that power to the 15" woofer and 1" tweeter, producing plenty of low end punch and clear details. All this is contained in an all-polypropylene enclosure that resists the thumps and bumps of the road, and also tilts back to serve as a floor monitor. The XP115 also features three handles and a standard-sized pole mount.
The back panel of the XP115A includes an XLR/1-4" input for microphones or line level devices, an XLR output to allow you to hook up additional speakers, and a contour switch that offers a 100 Hz or 12 kHz boost. Best of all, this powerful, convenient speaker weighs only 33 pounds. Let Samson lift your sound to new heights.
