LD Systems MAUI 5 PA System
The LD Systems MAUI 5 produces incredible sound quality and power for such a portable, lightweight column PA system. Featuring a built-in mixer and wireless bluetooth connectivity. The verticle height of the unit is fully adjustable to fit it with the surrounding listening audience.
The ultra compact MAUI 5 weighs in at about 11 kg while delivering 800 watts of peak power and a maximum SPL of 120 dB. Providing both sound reinforcement with extended coverage and feedback resistant monitoring the subwoofer base and 3-piece column system assembles in seconds with custom multipin connectors. The junior member of the MAUI family is most easily portable and fits onto any car seat.
The vented 8" subwoofer also houses the system's Class D amplification with overcurrent, short circuit and thermal protection, LD Systems' proprietary LECC digital processing and a 4-channel mixer. Featuring Bluetooth technology for wireless streaming and microphone, line level and hi-Z inputs which can be used simultaneously the MAUI 5 lets you connect a wide variety of sources including music players and instruments such as keyboards or guitars. Individual level controls, subwoofer and master volumes plus high shelf filtering for room correction enable a perfectly balanced performance.

I bought a pair of these having previously owned the Maui 28 G2's. So I was expecting the great sound quality but didn't think they would be any match on loudness. Boy was I wrong! Although obviously not as loud with a max output, these certainly aren't shoddy by any stretch. All the other reviews I'd read pegged them for ceremony work but in fact they are gig level. I had 1 speaker per channel coming out of my Prime 4 and redlined the mixer output, and these speakers didn't clip - at all! Not only that, they were very loud without distortion (The LECC actually works). I'll be using this pair for kids gigs and adult events up to about 150 people. I can't really emphasise just how impressed I am with the Maui 5, so much more than I expected. I ordered from whybuynew on Tuesday afternoon (after checking they had stock) and they arrived Wednesday midday. Absolute 5 star service as usual from these guys.
