Personal PA system with a portable, battery-powerable design for amazing sound anywhere.
The Mackie FreePlay at its core is an extremely portable, personal PA system for performers, presenters and general music lovers. From the stage to the boardroom and the backyard, FreePlay delivers a full range sound with a high-output 8” woofer that adds fullness with a rich, detailed bass response. There are two combo inputs on the rear of the FreePlay to connect a balanced or unbalanced mic, instrument or line-level signal using an XLR or 1/4” connector. That means you can plug in your vocal mics, guitars, keyboards, and more.
The FreePlay is also able to sync with your Bluetooth enabled devices instantly at the touch of a button, so setting up a mic and guitar, then adding some backing tracks from your iPhone is as simple as it sounds. And speaking of sound, the overall sound of the FreePlay is true to Mackie’s long legacy of live sound performance. It’s powerful, with a full-range detail that is well suited for the variety of applications it can handle. At -10dB it has a frequency response from 65Hz to 20kHz with a maximum peak SPL of 114dB, so you’ll have plenty of juice to stand out in the crowd. Right out of the box the FreePlay sounds great, but what fun would it be if you didn’t have control over it? That’s why Mackie included a built-in 4-channel mixer with access to volume, EQ and effects for each channel right from the hardware or via the FreePlay Connect app for iPhone and iPod Touch.
Made To Be Mobile
Portability is FreePlay’s number one attribute. It’s battery operable, so it can go anywhere, at anytime. All you need is the optional rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can be purchased separately along with other great FreePlay accessories, or you can use 8 standard D-cell batteries. This, along with Bluetooth connectivity, turns the FreePlay into a free-roaming music box that can go from your backyard to the park, the beach, the gym, pretty much anywhere you go. Pairing your iPhone with the FreePlay is easy. There’s a Bluetooth sync button on the rear of the unit, just press and hold until your iPhone recognizes the FreePlay. Once paired, you can stream music from your favorite apps and control it from anywhere in the room. This means streaming music from iTunes, Spottily, Soundcloud, YouTube, pretty much anything. It’s perfect for weddings, birthdays, BBQs, Karaoke night, and more.
Perform or Present
The most common use for FreePlay will be as a personal PA system for street performances or small to mid-sized presentations. For performers, you can play along with backing tracks using Bluetooth audio streaming from your device, and you can also wirelessly control all mic levels, channel EQ and digital effects. FreePlay is also ideal for corporate events where a lightweight, compact set up is required, which is great for restaurants, hotels, schools and more. With either application you have complete control over your sound including channel levels, channel EQ and effects levels. There are 16 great-sounding effects built-into the FreePlay like reverbs, delays and choruses that are perfect for vocals and a wide range of instruments.

Comments about Mackie FreePlay Personal PA System:
I purchased this speaker as an alternative to carrying my Roland BA300. I wanted something smaller for quick gigs in tight places.
