Light weight with incredible sound!

After transporting and setting up my old PA system, my 74 year old hands would be almost too tired to play guitar. The entire iP500 PA weighs less than one of my old PA speakers. Received the iP500 (2 boxes) on Thursday and played a 4 hour gig on Saturday. No heavy amp and speakers. No speaker stands and wires. Just a simple, quick setup! Best of all, the sound was incredible and very uniform throughout a large outdoor venue. The audience noticed and commented on the sound quality. I can highly recommend the iP500. Buy it for the excellent sound quality. Enjoy the ease of setup.

Turbosound inSpire iP500

I figured another review of this system was not out of line, considering that I've been using it now for a while. This has become my favorite, go to system for most of the gigs we're doing. It's super light and easy to transport. It sets up almost in seconds as opposed to minutes. It has never, not been loud enough for any gig that I've taken it to, even though we'd been using the iP1000 or QSC powered speakers previously. I'm pairing it with the Soundcraft UI 12 mixer and that works great too. The sound is very very good! It sounds great from the very first "test" and continues to perform all night with very little, if any intervention. I may tweak a thing or two after the first song, but after that, it's good to go all night. I'm really thinking that this may be the best $500 I've ever spent. If you are considering buying this system, my advice is, do it! You won't regret it.

Crisp Clean Sound!

Received the iP500 in 2 boxes. In a matter of minutes I had the unit upacked and plugged in my guitar. Without any effects the sound was crisp and clear with a good low end without being muddy. It took a little time experimenting with the digital controls and pretty easy to operate. The tower comes in 2 pieces that slide into the base. The upper tower can also be attached to the base for a shorter unit setup. The bluetooth hooked up to my tablet without any problem and the sound is incredible! A carry shoulder bag and base cover are included. I I've have contacted Turbosound about an Adroid app for remote control as they only have an app for iPhone and iPad and the said it should be available end of 2016 or early 2017. Going to use it primarily for acoustic guitar gigs at restaurants, bars, and farmers markets. Is it as good as the Bose L1 Compact? Probably equal in sound quality and the digital/remote app probably put this unit ahead of the competition!
