The Behringer Europort PPA500BT is a full–fledged PA System that can be compacted into a portable self-contained unit that looks like a bag.

When unpacked, this compact unit separates into three sections, which include two speakers and a central mixing console.

And as usual, Behringer packed this PA system with features that include Bluetooth connectivity, 5-Band EQ, feedback detection, and it even comes bundled with speaker cables and a handheld dynamic microphone.

The built-in Klark Teknik effects can expand your tone options with its 100 effects that include delay, reverb, chorus, pitch shifting and more.

Pros

The Behringer PPA500BT continues to gather positive reviews, thanks to its incredible value for money. Many are impressed by its its sound quality and ease of setup. Good reports come from users of different backgrounds, from small venues to outdoor parties, from small rooms to churches, from DJs to band practice - and they were surprised by its great overall performance. Another notable feature that was remarked on by some users is its compatibility with Behringer's wireless mics, which makes setup even more convenient.

Cons

There were a few who complained about the quality of the reverb. Others were expecting a bit more low end, but since the specs did say that it has 8" woofers, this is to be expected.

Overall

This is a great value portable PA system that anyone can benefit from, especially those who consider themselves to be non-technical and just want something that's easy to setup and move around.

This was on our recommended list until we conducted a detailed review of small PAs in September 2019 when we found there were more highly rated options which we now recommend in our guide to The Best Portable / Compact PA Systems + Battery Powered PAs.
