Yamaha STAGEPAS 500 Portable PA system is no longer available. It has been superseded by the Yamaha Stagepas 600i.
Yamaha STAGEPAS 500 is a lightweight, portable, easy-to-use PA system consisting of a pair of high-performance speakers with a built-in powered mixer. You can be set up and playing in a matter of minutes, and then packed away and on the road again with the same ease and speed when you're done. And all of this is provided with no compromise in sound quality or versatility, plus some advanced features you normally wouldn't expect to find in systems in this class. Getting great sound for live performance used to be a big deal.
Dual 250-Watt amplifier
Two 250-watt power amplifier can fill surprisingly large clubs or rooms, or project your sound over a considerable distance outdoors. The class-D power amplifier has been painstakingly designed to deliver superior sound quality as well as reliability in a remarkably compact unit.
Versatile 10-channel Mixer with Monitor and Record Outputs
If there are more members in your band than the STAGEPAS™ 300's 8 input channels can handle, or you simply have a lot of sources to mix, the STAGEPAS™ 500 gives you 10 input channels in all: four mono microphone/line inputs and three stereo line inputs. The additional stereo channel can used for either a stereo or mono source. In addition to the main speaker outputs the mixer has line outputs that can be used to connect additional powered speakers for monitoring, and to send the mixer's output to a recording device.
Phantom Power for High-performance Condenser Microphones
The STAGEPAS™ 500 mixer features switchable phantom power for the four mono microphone/line inputs. This lets you use high-performance phantom-powered condenser microphones in situations where you want the extended, natural response they provide.
Built-in Channel Compression/Limiting, 2-band Channel EQ and SPX Digital Reverb
Channels 1 and 2 feature LIMIT/COMP switches that let you apply either limiting or compression to those channels. Limiting can be useful to prevent input overload and distortion with sources that have a wide dynamic range, while compression can add punch to vocals, bass, guitar, and other sources while smoothing out the sound and helping it to "ride" better in the mix. Like the STAGEPAS™ 300 mixer, the STAGEPAS™ 500 mixer has 2-band EQ controls on each channel, as well as REVERB switches on channels 1 through 4. A separate REVERB level control adjusts the reverb mix.
High-performance 10" 2-way Passive Speakers
STAGEPAS™ 500 speakers have 10?Ewoofers and 1?Ehigh-frequency units. Both types deliver clean, high-quality sound. The speakers can be stand mounted without standard speaker stand adapters(Tripod pole diameter is 35 mm).
The STAGEPAS™ 500 is a great choice for easy operation in a wide range of applications.
Solo Guitar Plus Vocal
The high-performance built-in reverb adds the finishing touch to great vocal sound, while an electro-acoustic guitar can be plugged directly into the mixer.
The STAGEPAS™ 500 mixer will accept up to four microphones, and small powered monitors can be added for an unbeatable street performance system.
Set the SPEECH/MUSIC switch to SPEECH and the STAGEPAS™ 500 mixer is automatically set for optimum clarity and intelligibility for speech or announcements. The output from a CD player or other stereo line source can be mixed in for background music.
Up to four microphones can be mixed with one or two stereo sources providing background music or other program material. Add video or projection equipment for an outstanding presentation system.
