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.
