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.

Power mixer to a power amp.


You have two aux sends on that mixer so quite easy to use one of those to feed the external power amp. You could have one set of spkrs connected to that amp and another connected to the powered mixer. This would give you full independent control over each set.

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 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.

Could a bad cable connection make a fuse blow in my fender passport 250, or cuase any problemmwith ouput from my speakers...?


A shorted speaker cable could cause this... however, what you do is to replace the fuse BUT wire a 150 Watt lamp in series with the power input... This acts as a resetable fuse for testing. If the lamp stays lit, you still have a failure.

Fender passport 150 pro- Bought to uses for "Bike Nights" Plaing cd palyer in small retail parking lots. Volume is too low, when ever I try to put input level beyond halfway,,, I get...


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 want to connect a keyboard to the Fender Passport 500watt


Plug your keyboard into a line input. Run a cable from the stereo out put jack into a separate amplifier with a speaker e.g. a self contained powered monitor.

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.

Adding speakers to Fender Passpost 500 Amp system


If you add 8 ohm speakers in parallel then you would be running the amps into a 4 ohm load ...which will overheat and possibly damage them ...... if you wire series then the amps would be loaded to 16 ohms ...which would be ok ..but you will only develop 70 % of the total output power
IE a 100watt would be down to 70 watts
much better to add some seperate powered speakers
