SOURCE: What's the best way to connect a PC (with DJ

Best way is to use a 1/8 TRS (stereo) to 1/4 TRS (stereo) cable from the PC into the Stereo 1/4 inch jacks right below the RCA stereo input jacks.

TRS stands for tip-ring-sleeve which means the jacks have the extra "ring" over a mono jack.

Unless you abused the cable badly, this is UNLIKELY. More probable is failure of the amplifier.

SOURCE: One of my Fender Passport

You have probably blown the speaker... swap left and right to verify it is the speaker... These speakers are NOT too well suited for bass... They typically have low impedance speakers in series. You run a risk of popping the amp running with a blown speaker. You MAY have to replace all the speakers in the defective cabinet. ALL the speakers must be identical. The Passport 250 uses four 2 ohm speakers in series... not sure about the 500. It may have two 8 ohm in parallel. Do not use the speaker until it is fixed... the amps are hard to repair if a defective speaker cooks them.

Fender Passport pro 500 - speaker static temporary, then goes away. Usually occurs shortly after turning system on.


If this system is still under warranty get it to a warranty service center. This is an early stage symptom of failure with the Power Amp IC. Fender has a good warranty policy on this stuff - 1 to 3 years

If not under warranty you may want to wait until it the problem is more persistent - easier for a tech to fix - unless it IS every time right now. A good tech can identify the issue quickly once "on the bench". My 'gut' feeling is the Power Amp IC when the system is first energizing to full stable power.

One of my Fender Passport 500 speakers has started to crackle sometimes, particularly when the song has a lot of base. What could be causing this? Would a regulator help?

You are in danger of popping the amp. The Fender passport 150 would be capable of covering about only a 20 foot by 20 foot area. If your area is bigger than that, you need more power and certainly bigger speakers. I would NOT recommend the larger Passport systems as the speakers are too directive for what sounds like your use... also there are reliability issues.

I purchased a Passport 500 less than one year ago, used it maybe 10 times and recently turned it on to use and it would not power up. No lights nothing. Checked the fuse ok. Tried a new fuse nothing. ...


Check that the power cord is seated completely. These are hard to work on and if there is a failure in it, it is unlikely you will get it restored in time. I would suggest renting a system until you get it repaired. You need rent only a powered mixer with suitable cables as your speakers should be fine. The way the Fender Passport is packaged makes them difficult to work on.

What's the best way to connect a PC (with DJ software) to a Fender PAssport 500 PRO (I want stereo input)?


Best way is to use a 1/8 TRS (stereo) to 1/4 TRS (stereo) cable from the PC into the Stereo 1/4 inch jacks right below the RCA stereo input jacks.

TRS stands for tip-ring-sleeve which means the jacks have the extra "ring" over a mono jack.
