Samson Expedition XP308i – 300-Watt Portable PA
One Portable, Great Sounding System.
The Expedition XP308i gives you the power to perform wherever you need it. With powerful, full-range sound in an all-inclusive portable package, the Expedition XP308i is an ideal single system solution for a variety of live sound applications.
A compact PA system with dual 2-way speakers, on-board mixer and 300-watt power amplifier, the XP308i is the ultimate in portability thanks to a clever, lightweight design that allows you to connect all the pieces together into a single, easy to transport case. The internal 2 x 150-watt Class D power amplifier produces an incredibly clean and powerful stereo sound. The system’s speakers are 2-way vented enclosures with heavy-duty 8″ woofers for deep bass. These are complemented by a 1″ titanium tweeter set in a custom horn with a 60° x 90° coverage pattern. The result is consummate dispersion and loud, lucid audio.
The XP308i’s 8-channel mixer can be removed from the speaker for tabletop use and you can use the kickstand to set the mixer at an ergonomically correct angle. The mixer features four mic/line inputs, two stereo inputs, bass and treble control on each channel input and Phantom Power. For enhanced convenience and versatility, the XP308i includes a built-in iPod dock, which easily connects to most iPod models for seamless music playback.
Now With Bluetooth Capability…
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. Ultra-convenient and easy-to-use, you can now control your music from afar with minimal effort, whether it’s to skip to your favorite track or pause the music when the outside world comes calling.
With all these features and capabilities set in one portable, great sounding system, the Expedition XP308i stands out as one of the most versatile and inclusive portable PA systems on the market.
Your Musical Voice
Though the XP308i was designed for providing quality sound reinforcement in musical settings, the dynamic range of musical settings that can benefit from the system’s features is unparalleled. Whether you’re a singer/songwriter gigging in a coffee shop, a full band practicing in a rehearsal space or a DJ entertaining people at a small club or bar, the XP308i will ensure your sound is well suited for your space. In addition, the system’s speaker enclosures lend themselves perfectly to a variety of musical performances when being used as floor monitors.
Business Professional Sound
With the XP308i, your voice will command the boardroom podium with as much authority as the stage. The XP308i provides the perfect solution for a business professional leading any sort of presentation. No matter the application (PowerPoint presentations, company meetings, corporate events, etc.), the unit will allow you to convey your ideas in a clear, concise manor and perform your job better. Specifically relevant in such cases, the XP308i’s integrated iPod dock or the included BT30 enable you to playback audio clips in promoting a more interactive listening experience for any audience.
In addition to all students, teachers and professors utilizing the XP308i in some of the same circumstances as business professionals (presentations, audio playback), the system possesses some functions unique to music education. The unit is ideal for directing large instrumental ensembles. XP308i will help conductors keep even their percussionists on task. Thanks to its iPod dock and the BT30, soloists and small ensembles can practice along with recorded accompaniment. Also, the XP308i’s audio playback abilities make the analysis of recorded music easier, as well as a more interactive listening and educational experience.
Take It Outside
Beyond producing impeccable public announcement sound quality, the XP308i’s elements of portability make it ideal for countless recreational uses. For a traveling instructor, the XP308i is perfect for leading exercise/yoga classes in fitness clubs. Outdoor functions pose no problem whatsoever for the XP308. Block parties, sporting events, and matters of crowd control now have a more practical, and still extremely portable, alternative to the megaphone. The XP308i is also sure to excite the tailgating crowd, now able to demonstrate their team spirit at a level never before possible, or simply provide musical entertainment for a classic tailgate party.
The Expedition 308i is ideal wherever a smaller PA system and great sound are required.
