Stage Right 130-Watt 8-channel PA System with Two 10-inch speakers
Amplify your next event or performance with this 130-watt 8-channel PA System from Monoprice!
This all-in-one system features two speakers, each with one 10" woofer and one 1" compression driver, and an 8-channel mixer with a built-in amplifier. The amplifier features a 20 Hz ~ 20 kHz frequency response range, with less than 1% THD. The amp puts out 65-watts per channel RMS, with 130-watts per channel peak power.
The mixer has four mono channels, each of which has one balanced XLR microphone input and one unbalanced 1/4" line input. Channels 5 and 6 are ganged together into a single stereo pair with a pair of unbalanced 1/4" and RCA inputs, while channels 7 and 8 use a single 3.5mm stereo TRS input. Phantom power is available for the XLR microphone inputs.
On the output side it has 1/4" and RCA unbalanced stereo pairs for the monitor, a 3.5mm TRS headphone jack, and two 1/4" unbalanced speaker outputs. The four mono channel inputs and the master volume control feature clipping indicators to let you know when the inputs or output are going into distortion.
The system is designed for portability and mobility, accepting input voltages in the 95 ~ 250 VAC, 50/60 Hz range. The speakers feature a standard 1-3/8" PA mounting hole, allowing them to be mounted on standard PA speaker stands, such as PID 602350. The mixer's cover features a large storage compartment for cables. The system comes with a power cable and two, 20-foot 1/4" TS speaker cables.

PROS: The pro's: Small/compact, decent sound quality, no frills system, but has what I needed.
CONS: Plastic storage compartment door catch cheaply made. Don't expect high volume levels-just loud enough for practice vocal and acoustic-okay for 25 person audience, I paid $27 shipping-had I ordered through Amazon shipping was free.
Check out youtube for the unboxing and video review.
PROS: Clean sound, solid construction, XLR and Phantom Power, compact and easy to transport
CONS: Echo effect is terrible, no Aux controls , faders are a little cheap
PROS: Great portability, great sound, great mixer and plenty of power
CONS: Not much bass and no EQ on the stereo channel
The first and only time I used these was at my band rehearsal, and everyone was quite impressed. I purchased it on sale, but even at Monoprice full retail, these are an amazing bargain.
PROS: Great Price, Portable, good sound quality.
CONS: Couldn't get the phono inputs working, but didn't try very hard. Will update my review when I do.
PROS: - Compact and easily portable
-All cables to set up right out of the box
- Just buy a 1/4" cable and plug your guitar in
CONS: - Access panel for cables could use work to stay closed
PROS: Light weight , portable , storage on one cab , mixer/amp on other. Plenty of power for the size of the system. Easy basic layout of the desk , runs cool (no fans creating noise). shipped very well. Oh its a true 4 channel desk (4 xlr + 1/4)
CONS: nothing so far.
First, I had said the output jacks were not labeled for left right, I was wrong- they are labeled but the writing is very small so I missed the labels.
Second, the way the mixer and cable container attach to the speaker backs is problematic. To be more precise, attaching them is not so bad, but detaching is difficult.
To attach the backs to the cabinets, you first slide the tabs in the mixer and cable container backs into the corresponding plastic holes at the bottom rear of the speaker cabinet. Then you click the top into place. So far so good.
To remove the back units from the cabinets you're supposed to slide a small switch that unlatches from the cabinet. But the latch has so much play in it that it takes more time to get the back off than it does to setup the unit. With (too much) experimentation I learned if I push the switch to the side while at the same time pushing the entire back up and twisting it, the back will come off. Way too much work. I may decide to just leave the backs off and keep them in a separate box or nylon bag. That would make three containers to haul around, instead of the original (and very attractive) two, but MUCH less hassle than wrestling with uncooperative and poorly designed latches.
Third, the cable compartment back has a separate lid to keep the cables under control. Great idea, poor execution. The latch is cheap plastic and the lid doesn't fit well. You have to gently, carefully close the lid so the latch catches. If you push too hard the lid collapses into the compartment and you have to use a screwdriver or something to pry up the lid. But if you are too gentle the latch doesn't catch and pops open, or interferes when you try to attach the back to the cabinet. More than once the cables spilled onto the ground because I had been too gentle. I suspect I'll ditch the lid and just use ziplock bags to control my cables,
MonoPrice- I suggest you invest some R&D effort into improving the latch mechanisms for the back units, and the cable compartment. The current design will not stand up to much use. But since the overall quality of the mixer and speakers is still so good I'm knocking my rating down only one star.
PROS: clean sound, price, easy to transport
CONS: won't fill a 30,000 seat arena with sound. In others word know your needs and don't expect this to be something it's not.
PROS: Great sound
Easy to setup
Able to pair with many different inputs
Not only that, it really sounds awesome!!! I've already used it for a children's party, an adult party, an all day event and used it as a public address system.
So to wrap it up, it's one of the smallest + lightest + loudest (for 10") + best sounding bang for your buck out in the pro audio market!!!!!
Easy to carry
Small enough to fit in a mini compact vehicle
Stereo and mono independent inputs
Level adjustments on all channels
Built in EQ
Built in effect
All cables included so you can use right out of the box
Probably many more Pro's I missed. I just loved it 5STAR +
CONS: None really, just as I mentioned you have to use a little common sense on the amplifiers stereo outs.
