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.

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.

Fender Passports are notorious for being badly built with poor reliabilty. Trade it in for a fiver and buy something of better quality.

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?

I just bought a fender passport 150 and it isn't very loud and the channel lights aren't even coming on when I plug in my guitar or my mic. You can hear the guitar and mic but only when the volume...


Turn down the VIP knob and try it. This is on channel 1 for announcement voice overs overriding everything. It has a threshhold setting for adjusting that. Here is the manual for it.

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.

I'm using an external reverb (T.C. Electronics Nova) through the effects loop and I can only get verb out of one channel (left I think) and in fact it seems that the "stereo" section (knobs etc.) have no...


The external effects when used would require an effect processor with left and right channels. You need four cables total for the effects... the two channels out to the effect unit and two cables to bring it back to the power amps.

Remember to use your pan controls if you want certain inputs to go more to either the left or right outputs.

I want to add more speaker at my paspor fender 500


Run out of the stereo output jacks into a separate amplifier and speakers. The amplifier send jack only sends signal from the particular channel it is part of. In other words to get all the signals from all the channels you would need another mixer, amp and speakers. It is easier to use the stereo out which will give you all the signals. If you only use left out or right out make note of where your panpot is set for each channel.

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.
