Question about Fender Passport P-51 Consumer Microphone

Open Question

Fender Passport 250 PD

I dropped one of the speakers face first from a height of about 2 feet. The result was the phone jack that was plugged into the front of this speaker loosened the female connector located inside the speaker cabinet.  I've tryed to take the speaker grill off from the front by removing the to screws that hold it in place to the plastic molded cabinet.  The grill will not move.  Can you tell me how to proceed.  I would like to get insode to see if I need to do to repair it.   I'm a machinist so repairing should be no problem, but I don't want to destroy the front of my speaker grill trying to get inside the cabinet.  I can not find any information on the web on how to take it apart safely.  Thank you for your help in this matter.  Tom B.

    I think......and this is from experience a number of years ago with a Passport system......I think that the grill must be removed but the adhesive they use to stick it on is very very strong........I know I've had one apart and replaced a woofer at one point. I remember it not being obvious just how it came apart. Are there any rubber or plastic plugs that might pop out and reveal a screw head?

Sorry about the delayed response, I just noticed this posting.

The protect indicates a problem with the output section of the amplifier. Effectively the amp has been shutdown to prevent further damage. Although the unit should not have been working (at least not well) at 30V, unless they htried to run it at full volume, there should not have been damage. The outputs are blown and this unit requires repair. If I remember these units correctly, there are 8 output transistors, most of which may require changing. WIthout seeing the unit and taking some measurements, I can not say for sure, but expect $40-$70 in parts.

SOURCE: how do I open a fender passport 150 speaker cabinet?

There are screws running down the sides of the front panel which you will have to remove. The circuit board is secured to the front panel by the nuts, washers etc. that the controls and jacks are fastened with. Once you get the panel; loose gently move it forward so you can see any connections to the circuit board. Make careful note of all of these and draw diagrams. You will have to completely remove the panel from the enclosure and then the circuit board from the panel. The jack in question will be mounted on the circuit board and soldered to it on the reverse side. You will need to unsolder it, obtain an exact replacement, solder in the replacement and replace the board on the panel and the panel back in the enclosure. Make sure everything is connected exactly the way it was originally. Hope this helps.

Can I place my Fender Passport P-150 SPEAKERS ONLY on another system as ''extra speakers'' to a larger system. The larger system is a Samson XM910 900 Watt.


The speakers are 8 ohm (three 2 ohm in series in each cabinet).

You can connect them in parallel with others HOWEVER you cannot go below 4 ohms a side with your amp. This means you could use ONE other 8 ohm speaker in parallel with one of the passport speakers PER side.

Since the amp can vastly exceed the passport speaker rating you need to be careful to not overpower the passport speakers. One way to HELP regulate the level to the passport speakers is to use a LONG small gauge speaker cable on the passport speakers. Use a 50 foot 16 gauge speaker cable while using heavier, shorter cables on your mains.

With your Samson I would use mains rated at 300 Watts CONTINUOUS power, or at least maintain discipline in volume level to [revent speaker damage.

ALWAYS loop your speaker cables through handles of the enclosure to prevent them being pulled out during use which will destroy your amp... VERIFY the plugs are seated before pwering the system.

When the the Fender Passport 250 is plugged into the computer through the stereo out, there is feedback/buzz in addition to the sounds the microphones pick up, even when the mikes are off.


If there is a 120hz buzz then there is a ground loop between the computer and the passport. You need to get a ground isolator to go between the two. If the buzz is deeper the may be a audio ground off or the hum is comming from the power supply

Left speaker channel dont work , sound shorted


Make sure the PAN controls are set to center. If they are, the amp may have a failure. Hint: these systems are hard to work on due to the way they are assembled.

Fender Passport makes loud chirpping knocking sound after on for only 5 10 minutes


I have one that is doing the exact same thing. It's at a Fender
Authorized Service Center now. Hopefully dude can find the
problem. Fender says there is a 5 year warranty on it, so I
expect them to make good on their promise. Did you get
yours fixed?

Passport 250 PD dropped face first and it loosened the inside speaker connection


I have experience with the original Passport 250 as leader of the design team. To get inside of the speaker cabinet, you will need to remove a couple of small screws that hold in the grille at the top and bottom of the cabinet face. Once these screws are removed, you will need to carefully pry out the grille from its pressure fit in the plastic noting how it is placed so you can reassemble the grill later. Once the grille is removed you will notice several holes located around the outer perimeter of the speaker panel. Inside these holes, you will find the screws that secure the front of the cabinet (part with speaker attached) with the back of the cabinet housing. Once you have all of the screws removed, you can separate the front panel from the housing and fix the wires or dislocated parts such as crossovers, etc.

Once repaired, use the reverse method to reassemble the cabinet. Don't tighten the cabinet screws excessively as they can strip the plastic.

I hope this repair works for you.
