Summary: The Stagepas 500 is the last set of speakers I will ever buy. Got them for larger (and outdoor) venues, to compliment the Stagepas 300 system I already had for smaller gigs. They do everything a performer could possibly ask for and sound great, too.
Summary: I use this PA for church weddings and pre dinner gigs.It has more than enough power for these applications. I have used it a couple of times for night time gigs (100-150 people in a small/medium size room) but felt I was driving it a bit to hard although there were no sound quality issues. Would love if Yamaha would address the issues I mentioned above and also consider bringing out the stagepas 800 or even 1000!!!
Summary: This will be the mainstay of our small coffee house/small hotel lounge gigs. We'll reserve our 15's and 14 channel board/monitors for large rooms/outdoors. This little workhorse can carry the load without us breaking our backs or compromising our sound.
Summary: This system is an EXCELLENT value for the money. It is very powerful and so easy to move around using the Yamaha carrying cases. Awesome options and very well built system. The sound quality is top notch!
