My new favorite inexpensive battery powered sound system, The Samson Expedition Escape. This puppy is LOUD AND CLEAN! Up to 20 hours on a single charge. I ran mine hard yesterday for 3 hours and two of the three green battery charge lights lights were still lit. I'm thinking real world it would run 5-6 hours on a charge at almost full power. Very light, as it weighs only 8.5 pounds 15.75” X 10.5” X 10.5” makes for very small footprint. It is speaker stand mountable, for more coverage. The 6' full range driver and 1” compression driver give it exceptional frequency range bandwidth. It has built in bluetooth, a 1/4” input and a 1/8” input. There's a USB jack to charge your phone at 1 AMP/HR capacity. The carrying handle cavity will hold a smart phone or MP3 player. The 1/8” input would work for Keyboards or Active pickup acoustic instruments. I used an old Samsung Galaxy II for backing tracks through the 1/8” jack. I then used my Samsung Galaxy S III microphone app through the Bluetooth, as the S III has an exceptional condenser mic built in. I plugged my passive pickup 'ukulele into my belt mounted Line6 Pocket Pod and then into the 1/4” input. It performed like a champ. I could pack the entire system into a backpack. Ric
It's easier to ask for forgiveness, than permission!
