Large Compact All-In-One Portable PA System

Samson's Expedition XP1000B Portable PA system is an all-in-one sound system with incredible features and tons of power that packs into a single compact design. It's the largest in their Expedition range and it's perfect for live music performances, DJ sets, parties, group exercise classes, office presentations, academic lectures and anywhere else you want great sound.

A compact PA system with dual 2-way speakers, on-board mixer and 1000-watt power amplifier, the XP1000B is the ultimate in portability thanks to a clever, lightweight design that allows you to connect all the pieces together into a single, easy to transport case.

The XP1000B's 2-way vented speakers give you a clean, powerful stereo sound. Their 10" low frequency drivers produce excellent low end punch, while the 1" high frequency drivers receive wide dispersion from 60° x 90° horns. For performance versatility, these ABS, high impact enclosures feature integrated 1 3/8" speaker stand mounts, as well as a 30° kickback design for use as floor monitors.


The XP1000B is Bluetooth-enabled, allowing you to wirelessly stream music from your smartphone, tablet or laptop. A removable 10-channel mixer with an impressive 1,000-watt (2 x 500w), lightweight Class D amplifier powers the XP1000B. The mixer features four Mic/Line input channels, each with XLR and 1/4" inputs for connecting microphones or active line level instruments. It also includes three stereo input channels for connecting external devices like MP3 players, keyboards and more. Each channel features Bass and Treble controls, and the first two Mic/Line channels have a selectable compressor to even out levels while preventing overload and distortion. The XP1000B even has a USB Wireless port for use with Samson's Stage XPD1 USB Digital Wireless System (sold separately). For precise control over your sound, the XP1000B provides 16 presets of high quality DSP effects, perfectly suited for vocals.


For larger applications, the XP1000B provides stereo monitor outputs with level control to use the system with additional powered full-range or sub-bass speakers (see the recommended Auro-D1200 sub-bass speaker below). In addition, the mixer has a Phantom Power switch to enable the integration of condenser microphones into your PA setup.


• Your Musical Voice
Though the XP1000B was designed for providing quality sound reinforcement in musical settings, the dynamic range of musical settings that can benefit from the system's features is unparalleled. Whether you're a singer/songwriter gigging in a coffee shop, a full band practicing in a rehearsal space or a DJ entertaining people at a small club or bar, the XP1000B will ensure your sound is well suited for your space. In addition, the system's speaker enclosures lend themselves perfectly to a variety of musical performances when being used as floor monitors.


• Business Professional Sound

With the XP1000B, your voice will command the boardroom podium with as much authority as the stage. The XP1000B provides the perfect solution for a business professional leading any sort of presentation. No matter the application (PowerPoint presentations, company meetings, corporate events, etc.), the unit will allow you to convey your ideas in a clear, concise manor and perform your job better. The system's Bluetooth capability is specifically relevant in such cases, its integrated Bluetooth receiver enabling you to playback audio clips in promoting a more interactive listening experience for any audience.


• Academic Accompaniment
In addition to all students, teachers and professors utilizing the XP1000B in some of the same circumstances as business professionals (presentations, audio playback), the system possesses some functions unique to music education. The unit is ideal for directing large instrumental ensembles. XP1000B will help conductors keep even their percussionists on task. Thanks to its integral Bluetooth receiver, soloists and small ensembles can practice along with recorded accompaniment. Also, the XP1000B's audio playback abilities make the analysis of recorded music easier, as well as a more interactive listening and educational experience.

• Take It Outside
Beyond producing impeccable public announcement sound quality, the XP1000B's elements of portability make it ideal for countless recreational uses. For a travelling instructor, the XP1000B is perfect for leading exercise/yoga classes in fitness clubs. Outdoor functions pose no problem whatsoever for the XP1000B. Block parties, sporting events, and matters of crowd control now have a more practical, and still extremely portable, alternative to the megaphone. The XP1000 is also sure to excite the tailgating crowd, now able to demonstrate their team spirit at a level never before possible, or simply provide musical entertainment for a classic tailgate party.

The Expedition XP1000B stands out as a complete portable PA system that is perfect for medium to large-sized musical, educational, business and recreational applications.

Add some heart-thumping sub-bass...

Although the XP1000B delivers really good, tight bass performance on its own, Samson's Auro D1200 Active Subwoofer further extends its bottom-end to give it that truly professional sound - with powerful lows that let audiences not only hear, but "feel" the bass. The Auro D1200 packs heart-thumping power in an efficient enclosure that weighs a very portable 18kgs to get it anywhere great low-end is a must.

The Auro D1200 features a 12" long excursion low frequency driver and a built-in amplifier that produces 700 watts of output power. Signal, Limiter and Protect indicators offer constant monitoring of the amplifier. Its variable low pass filter control allows you to properly tune the subwoofer for specific applications, while the system's Polarity switch can be used to ensure that the subwoofer is in phase with the rest of your PA system. The Auro D1200 also features balanced stereo XLR-1/4" combo inputs, parallel XLR outputs and a 3-position (Normal, Deep, Boost) DSP contour control.

A roadworthy design, the Auro D1200 is constructed of solid 5/8" plywood with a professional textured paint finish. The enclosure also features two large ergonomic carry handles that make transport a breeze. Easy to move and built to last, the Auro D1200 Active Subwoofer completes the full-range output of your Portable Expedition XP1000B PA setup.
