I think the Fender passport is overkill for a birthday party, given the typical audience size of under 30 children. However, if you want a system for larger groups, and don't need a battery operated system, it is great.

For outdoor venues, consider something that can operate on batteries. Anchor Audio has a number of portable systems that may meet your needs.

Search the Café and you will find a number of discussions on sound systems.

The Fender Passpots are OVERkill for a the normal birthday party, however, the Fender Passport PD-150 is ideal for schools shows and most auditoriums. I love this product. This unit plays stereo music

For Birthday Parties:
As for the 2nd System the Roland CM-30 (10 lbs) will serve well and it is not that expensive $150. The Mackie SRM150 is due to come out tomorrow (Hopefully) and it is $300 but weigh 7.5 lbs fits in most Lefler Tables These units play Mono not stereo, however, a second like speaker will allow stereo.

I have another question. Can I work with fender outside (no electric)?

Yes you can use the fender outside. You need to buy the fender ac/dc converter and you need to get the fender battery pack.

Both available on ebay.

There are other options but that is a good one.

I am not sure about the new Fender Passport PD-150 Plus. I read where the existing AC/DC converters won't work with it. They will work with the older Fender 150s.

As for a mixer, the Fender has it's own mixer and lots of inputs. The mixer is only needed when you have more inputs than are provided by the unit.

Since you are new to the Fender Passport, please fully understand the VIP selector. If it is on and another channel is used it will automatically shut down that second channel. It overrides the channel with music when someone wants to talk. It is a good feature if used right but for those who don't understand this unit you could think something is wrong.

The only items that need not be on the floor or table are the speakers. They should be on speaker stands. The cables are 27 feet long, so the mixer and the base unit can be near each other.

If the mixer on the floor it's a problem. I need go to mixer every time to lower the volume - no good for my back.
So what I do? Have stand for mixer?

Check out this thread for a small (not so if you use the Crate Limo battery powered 50 watt amp!) battery powered setup including battery powered wireless mic setup.

40 lbs!!! The fender passport 150 is 28 lbs, and much better and lighter.

You can take The fender Passport to Birthday Parties. Its only problem is it's weight and that extra trip to the car. It is nice to have a unit small enough to do the job and it fits in a larger magic table like the Lefler table.

One realizes this after carrying these units up a flight of stairs quite a few times.
