  • Our American Legion needs a battery powered speaker for use at cemetaries

    I looked around and found the Alesis Transactive Mobile, a Samson powered speaker with a built in wireless mic, and the Roland BA-330. Sweetwater also has a couple of things from MiPro but they're quite a bit more expensive than the others. The guys told me they'd be using this for speech. When I asked about budget they said they weren't sure, but I'm positive they are willing to spend enough so they won't have to worry about this again.



    Any suggestions?

    Consider using a battery and an inverter, then you can use any of the powered speakers with the features you need.

      I mentioned that option but they didn't seem too keen on the idea. If there are no viable battery powered options we're going to have to go that route...I'm just hoping we don't have to.

        Anchor Audio- purpose built (not adapted) for scenarios like this.

        Explorer Pro is probably the product your looking for. Give them a call and let them help you spec a system for your needs. You can get it set up with a wireless mic system built in, so that all you need to do is put it on a speaker tree, turn it on and grab the wireless mic. No external power needed.
        I love to sing, and I love to drink scotch. Most people would rather hear me drink scotch.

          Agreed. Expensive but the right tool for the job.

            Yup. Anchor owns this market. Definitely not audiophile, but vocal clarity is good and it's durable gear.

                How about a Honda EU 1000 generator and any ol gol darn powered speaker you'd ever want to use? Perfect.

                  We have 3 Yorkville TVM50 battery powered amps we send out to various sporting events. I used 2 of them last summer with a psm700 system as a wireless battery powered delay line for a graveyard service. $299 list.

                    We replaced our aging DC Anchors with the MiPro things. Both worked well for these purposes. How many folks are they speaking to?

                      Thanks for the replies. I can't imagine this being used for more than 50 people (any more than that and I think they'd make some special arrangements.)



                      The more I think about this, I'm going to try to steer them away from anything wireless so they won't have to worry about batteries or reception problems (the goal is to eliminate any possible distractions during the services.)



                      I am a little concerned about the cost of the Anchor Audio system. I'm going to their fish fry this Friday and should be able to pin down their expectations and budget.
