The MPA40BT-PRO's all-in-one control panel lets you add sources and control the sound with ease.

Built-in Bluetooth® connectivity

Behringer knows that today people consume their music through devices, so they equipped the MPA40BT-PRO with Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to stream audio directly from your phone, tablet, or laptop right to the speaker. The wired dynamic microphone lets you add your voice to the mix. The speaker weighs less than 20 pounds, so you can move it from location to location with ease, while built-in wheels allow you to roll it behind you like a suitcase if you prefer.

Powerful and versatile

The MPA40BT-PRO's efficient built-in Class-D amp sends 40 watts of juice to the 2-way speaker, which is sure to get your presentation heard at the coffee shop or conference. The unit's 4-channel mixer includes two microphone preamps if you want to add more voices to the conversation. And if you're a fan of Behringer's ULM digital wireless microphones, they can be integrated with this system lickety-split. You can get connected with the unit's two XLR inputs and stereo RCA jack. The 2-band EQ gives you control of the tone.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unit is very good (with this price tag) and we like it a lot. The only reason why I gave it a 4-star is because of the microphone, it's like a toy and making noise when moving it. I end-up went locally and bought an inexpensive wired microphone and that totally fixed the problem.

I bought this portable PA for our bridge club/unit. We have used it at several recent events and it has worked extremely well. There is absolutely no distortion, no feedback at any volume level. The sound is very clean and accurate, not tinny or boomy like other PAs I have been subjected to. We also purchased the Behringer ULM300USB wireless microphone. Though this microphone also works extremely well, we wish there was a wireless lavalier microphone recommended/available for use with the system.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this hoping to provide music on the beach. This little box was plenty strong enough to hit every ear on the beach. The sound quality is much better than I expected even at high volume levels! The battery holds charge for easily 4-6 hours. For the price the sound is good. I give it 5 stars due to it's performance to price ratio and it's ease of operation.

Pros: Portable, Good and loud sound

Cons: None

Behringer doesn't make a headset mic that can plug into the USB port, so you have to use a wireless microphone system (mic+transmitter+receiver package) to add that ability to this speaker. All those systems will require AC power for the receivers and you'll lose the portability that makes really makes this one special. The Samson XP106w is a similar speaker that does have a compatible USB headset mic that can be added, resulting in a completely battery powered PA system with wireless headset: Samson XP106w: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_899XP106W/Samson-Expedition-XP106w.html Samson Headset Mic: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_899SXPDHS/Samson-Stage-XPD1-Headset.html [ Jeff  Mar 09, 2018 ]  Staff
I checked the manual and didn't see any mention of being able to replace the battery. This doesn't mean its not possible, but does open the possibility up of the warranty being void if you were to replace the battery. You might want to check with Behringer first to make sure this won't be an issue. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul  Sep 02, 2017 ]  Staff
