Califone Releases Two Updated PA System Models

Califone International, an educational audio equipment company, is releasing updates to its PA11 and PowerPro PA920 systems.

The portable PA11 offers the versatility of a wireless PA system, yet is compact enough for mobile use indoors, outdoors and on field trips for groups of up to 150 people. This product features a built-in carrying handle for playground use, meetings or tours, along with six hours of battery life with a low battery indicator. This unit can also operate while charging its built-in battery.

The PA920 is a complete, self-contained sound system. The unit features two wireless microphone receivers that support multiple presenters, Bluetooth compatibility to receive streaming audio from Bluetooth-capable mobile devices and a CD/USB Media Player that plays MP3 and MP4 audio files from CD and CD-R/W discs and USB thumb drives.

With 90 watts RMS of power, the PowerPro PA920 can provide audio for crowds of up to 1,000 people. The master speaker has two combination XLR/1/4-inch jacks for use with wired microphones and also includes a set of stereo RCA jacks that are well suited for connecting external audio sources.

The PA11 and PA920 are currently available for purchase through Califone and its dealers. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the PA11 is $382, and $2,590 for the PA920.

Califone is exhibiting at FETC this week in booth 1635. For more information, visit Califone’s website.
