Default Portable PA system

Do you have any ideas on how to create a portable PA system? I need it for my project. Any help would be greatly appreciated

How portable? One you can carry on a ten mile hike, one that fits in the back of a car, or one that needs several stage crew to load in the back of a truck?

The S400 is nice, but at 15kg+ it quickly bekomes a hernia generator! A (modified) ghetto-blaster seems a better joice. E

I certainly agree, probably for you and I..lol...I don't know the physical abilities of the OP, but if they want to carry a portable pa 10 miles...well, I thought it would be a challenge to solve that one. Class d amplification and NEO sounds like a must. I suggested the S400 due to sound quality and onboard 12v rechargable power supply..and it is hard to find anything powered for less than 34 lbs...maybe this:

Cool horn. Not the first iPhone hone I've see, but certainly the prettiest.
Of course I love the quote "...if you're dead serious about good, clear sound, you buy a headset and some killer Bose speakers and you're set."
