About Portable PA Systems

Portable PAs are a convenient speaker system for use in smaller venues. Usually consisting of one or two speakers and a small mixer, these compact PA systems are an extremely versatile way to amplify basic setups.

Popular uses for Portable PA systems are for karaoke systems, sporting events, aerobic instructors, classrooms, video game arcades, and professional musicians & function bands playing in cafe's, restaurants, pubs and clubs.

Some of the most popular Portable PAs utilise line array technology. This process combines lots of small speakers in place of one big speaker. Doing this allows more control over the physical shape of the system, as well as offering an even spread of sound throughout a venue. The Bose L1 range is the most popular example of this type of PA system.
