With outstanding flexibility for a PA system of this size, the 5-channel digital mixer features three channels of mono microphone/line inputs and stereo inputs, with two of the mono input channels equipped with Hi-Z connectivity for direct input of acoustic-electric guitars and other instruments. In addition to Phone and 1/8-inch mini jacks, the stereo connections support playback with Bluetooth devices as well as a wide range of input sources from instruments to CDs, PCs and smartphones.
STAGEPAS 1K mkII comes equipped with a wealth of sound shaping functions, including 1-knob EQ for optimized multi band EQ setting, industry standard SPX reverb, and the “Mode” control for master output compression settings that match various applications such as “Speech” or “Music.” Each of these functions can be set via a single knob, and have simplified many of the tough tasks like EQ and compression to get you great sound fast. In addition, the optional FC5 foot switch can also be used for on/off operation.
1. SPX the standard digital reverb
One knob operation gives you access to four types of Yamaha's proprietary SPX reverb settings—perfect for vocals and acoustic instruments. Simply turn the knob to change the reverb type and time, and then you’re ready to apply just the right amount of high-resolution effect to each channel.
2. 1-knob channel EQ
Whether turning to the left to cut unnecessary low-end frequencies for speeches, or turning to the right to emphasize the bottom and high end for band performances, this innovative equalizer can dial in the perfect sound adjustment with a simple turn of the knob.
3. “MODE” for master output
The multiband compressor adjusts optimized compression settings to suit various applications. By selecting MUSIC, SPEECH or CLUB MODE which is closest to your application, you can add a more professional edge to your sound without having to learn difficult compression/audio engineering principles.
STAGEPAS 1K mkII features “Priority Ducker” function, which can be controlled from the STAGEPAS Controller application and also turned on/off directly from the device.
An invaluable feature for applications that require both public-speaking and background music, Priority Ducker allows a microphone to take priority over another sound source automatically, just by speaking into the mic. Stop talking and the other sound source is brought back to its original level, and thus no console operator is required for this simple yet valuable function. You can even adjust the ducker attenuation of the sound source to suit your preferences.
With an all-new interface, STAGEPAS Controller is a dedicated remote control application for the STAGEPAS 1K mkII that allows users to adjust volume and 1-knob EQ or 4-band PEQ via Bluetooth during rehearsal or performance. You can also save the adjusted settings for certain songs or applications in order to shorten your setup process in the future and maintain consistency from one performance to the next, and even control the volume of multiple STAGEPAS 1K mkII units from within the application.
The STAGEPAS 1K mkII is an innovative all-in-one portable PA system that is not only capable of filling a wide area with highquality and uniform sound, but also lightweight and durable enough to be carried, and simple enough to set up in about one minute.
Simply affix the 2 spacers and speaker unit into the subwoofer and setup is essentially done, with no cables, speaker stand, or additional gear required beyond the main unit. All you need is in the package.
High-grade polyurea coating
The lightweight ABS cabinet of subwoofer features a high-grade polyurea coating to prevent wear and tear during transport. It is light enough to make the system extremely portable, but also rugged and scratch-resistant enough to withstand harsh performance environments.
Expandable STAGEPAS systems
Linking two STAGEPAS 1K mkII or a STAGEPAS 1K mkII with a DXL1K provides greater coverage area and increased output power for large-scale performances. Both stereo and mono playbacks are supported, and when set to mono, the inputs of the two linked units(*) can still be used.
* 2x STAGEPAS 1K mkII: up to six mono inputs plus two stereo inputs
* A STAGEPAS 1K mkII and a DXL1K: up to five mono inputs plus one stereo input
Fitted cover included
The STAGEPAS 1K mkII comes with its own cover which, in addition to protecting the unit, has pouches for both spacers and speaker array as well as additional storage for accessories to further streamline system setup and teardown.
An optional dedicated dolly allows for more convenient transportation — particularly useful for performers transporting additional gears and instruments. Featuring a simple, sturdy mechanism that locks down the speaker cover, the lightweight dolly enables smooth, reliable transportation
The STAGEPAS 1K mkII is ideal for duos or small music groups. Featuring an array speaker with 10 small-diameter units, its impressive coverage area offers superior performance over long distances, delivering clear, consistent audio from the front to the back of the audience. The Hi-Z inputs allows guitarists and bassists to plug directly into the mixer without a DI box, so you don’t have to carry as much equipment. Once your equipment is plugged in, you can use STAGEPAS Controller to call up previously saved settings, which reduces mixing time and gives you more time to rehearse. STAGEPAS Controller also allows you to adjust mixer levels while you play, allowing you to fine-tune as you listen to the sound. After rehearsal, you can even play background music until you hit the stage as Bluetooth connectivity lets you play back your favorite songs wirelessly from your iOS device.
If you need powerful bass to round out your sound but don’t have extra personnel or the surplus of time and energy it takes to lug large speakers and heavy gear around, the STAGEPAS 1K mkII is for you. The largest-in-class 12” subwoofer and 1100W amplifier guarantee rich and tight low-end performance while Link mode allows you to play in stereo playback, and scale up for larger events/ environments requiring higher SPL and wider coverage. Sound quality can be enhanced effortlessly with 1-Knob EQ and the MODE control, while simply turning the knob to the Club setting adds more punch and power to your bottom end. Each of these single knob functions controls multiple parameters at the same time, making it easier than ever to achieve a professional sound.
Have you ever felt totally lost after being asked to set up a sound system for your meeting? Without any audio training, fundamental tasks like connecting speakers and adding EQ to a mic can be quite nerve-wracking, but with the STAGEPAS 1K mkII, your troubles are over. Literally no PA expertise is required for first time users who can merely stick the spacer and array speaker into the subwoofer for a complete setup even without knowing the proper terminology or procedures. To adjust the microphone and get rid of feedback, simply turn the 1-Knob EQ for that channel to the left which will suppress feedback by cutting out unnecessary low-end. What’s more, the entire system is very lightweight and extremely portable so you can finish setting up and getting your mix quickly even in the presence of other people at work. The slim and stylish cabinet does not take up much space or stick out visually, giving you a lot of flexibility in choosing your set up location. The slim cabinet is also great for a range of acoustic environments, featuring small-diameter speakers in an array that broadens the directivity and delivers a uniform sound to an impressively wide coverage area.
