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.

There's also built-in DSP to add digital reverb to your voice or instrument. Each channel features 2-band (bass and treble) controls.
