The Samson Expedition XP308i - 300-Watt Portable PA packs up into a single unit that weighs just under 40 pounds making it suitable for schools, conferences and presentations, as well as musicians and singer-songwriters. The system includes a removable 8-channel mixer which powers the XP308i with a 300 watt (2 x 150) Class D amplifier.

The 8-channel mixer features four Mic/Line channels with XLR and 1/4" inputs, allowing you to connect microphones or line signals. It also includes two stereo input channels for connecting external devices like MP3 players, keyboards and more. It has a built-in phantom power for condenser microphones. There's also built-in DSP to add digital reverb to your voice or instrument. Each channel features 2-band (bass and treble) controls.

The system's 2-way vented speakers use 8" woofers and 1" high frequency drivers to deliver clean, powerful stereo sound with 60° x 90° coverage. For display flexibility, the ABS high impact plastic enclosures feature integrated 1-3/8" speaker stand mounts, as well as a kickback design for use as floor monitors.

For enhanced convenience and versatility, the PA system features an onboard 30-pin iPod dock. You can also use the iPod dock in combination with the included BT30 30-Pin Bluetooth® Receiver to transform the XP308i into a Bluetooth-enabled system capable of streaming music wirelessly from smartphones, tablets and laptops.
