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.

Hello...I am an owner of the Fender Passport PD-500 Sound System


Replace the fuse only once. If it blows right away, then servicing is required as continued replacement will likely damage more inside.

Most of thes have a fuse holder that is a part of the input power socket. There is a little rectangular panel adjacent where the cord connects with a tab that you gently pry out and carries a small fuse. Replace the fuse and re-install the carrier.

These units are very hard to work on due to packaging.

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

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.

Fender passport goes in to protect


I had a problem like this that was caused by a short between the two windings of the toroid in the power supply.

The solder blob is probably supposed to be there as there are numerous common ground points.

This unit is miserable to work on....

Behringer UB1222FX Pro: Problem With Left Channel Cutting Out


Try cleaning al of the sliders using an electronics cleaning spray. Choose one that contains a lubricant as well. Dirty sliders can cause this especially at low volume levels. If that does not resolve the provblem, update this and we'll look further.

P 150 system fails when 2 or more inputs are used at once


If you have an owners manual make note that channel one has a VIP feature with a control. This feature makes channel one override the other channels and is used for voice over announcements. The manual explains how to use the threshold control to set this. It can be downloaded at Fender.com/support.
