Upgrade from non-weatherproof, ‘consumer-grade’ portable systems to the DragonFly! No fragile injection-molded construction, underpowered amplifiers, or heavy lead-acid batteries – the DragonFly redefines what’s possible in a compact portable PA system.

Fully weatherproof, the DragonFly can easily be transported and set up by one person.
