The 7 Best Battery-Powered Wireless PA Systems

What are the overall best battery-powered wireless PA systems on the market?

A battery-powered PA system is essentially a standard PA system that can run completely wireless without being plugged in. Being a PA system, this also means each speaker has a mixer with separate channels that’s either built-in to the speaker or comes separately. All but one of the wireless PA speakers on our list use a rechargeable battery rather than wasteful disposable batteries.

This, in turn, eliminates consistent battery purchases that become costly, inconvenient, and a hassle.

While most of these portable wireless PA speakers are perfect for small outdoor events, coffee shop acoustic gigs, classrooms, street performers, conferences, and exercise classes; Many of these battery-powered PA systems can be used for larger events as well.

Regardless of the reason you have come here to find a portable wireless PA system, at least one of our top 7 picks will be the perfect choice for you and your needs.

With four 6.5″ speakers and two tweeters, the BA-330 produces a full stereo sound for just about any application. On the back, you will find a built-in mixer with 4-channels, 2-XLR, an anti-feedback feature, and a master equalizer. The anti-feedback button works surprisingly well at reducing feedback from any type of microphone. 

Of all the systems on this list, the Roland BA-330 is hands down the easiest to set up. Channels 1 and 2 are for microphones or instruments where channels 3 and 4 are stereo channels. Each channel has its own volume and effects control. You can either use delay or reverb for your effects.

You have the option to either plug this speaker directly into a power outlet or use it as a wireless speaker with its built-in rechargeable battery. On a full charge, it gives you up to 11 hours of playtime while it is not plugged in. The Bluetooth range gives you up to 30 feet. It’s incredibly light and compact, weighing 15 pounds. However, the sound quality and volume level are significantly louder than it looks.

Something I find interesting about this speaker is its exceptional versatility with four positions of sound. The best way to describe it is in the picture below, which is located on the back of this unit’s box.

As you can see, it can be used for musicians, speakers to a sitting audience, speakers to a sitting audience, or as a monitor for musicians. Each setup varies on the audience for optimal performance.

To sum up the sound quality in a few short words, a crystal clear response with an immense amount of volume. Bose hit a grand slam with this portable PA system. The rich and high-quality sound it produces with such a little speaker will genuinely blow your mind. It provides more than enough volume for most indoor or outdoor venues leaving headroom for more.

The thing that surprised me the most was the unique ToneMatch feature. In short, it automatically EQ’s the sound depending on the location or room you are at. After I use the ToneMatch, I generally need to adjust a few things very subtle or none at all. This feature plays a vital benefit to musicians or speakers who do not know much about EQ.

Overall, if you’re looking for a high-quality wireless portable PA system without a budget, the Bose S1 Pro is an incredible option. Be sure to check out the reviews.

Created in Germany, the affordable BEHRINGER (MPA40BTPRO) is a wireless battery-powered PA system that comes with a wired microphone. With two separate channels, each with an XLR and standard 1/4″ jack, you can plug-in just about any instrument or microphone.

The speaker and microphone are rather straightforward to use. You will not need a manual to set it up. This is yet another highly rated portable system with 40-watts. The foldable transport handle and wheels make it much more convenient to travel with. However, the compact design and lightweight make it as portable and convenient as it is.

Besides the portability, another convenient factor is the easy Bluetooth pairing. All you have to do is press the button labeled pairing on the back of the speaker. After that, click BEHRINGER MPA40BTPRO on your phone to connect it.

In terms of sound quality, the BEHRINGER MPA40BTPRO is clear and detailed for its compact size. In my experience, it’s best to bring the treble up to about 75% for the best sound. The low-end is decent but can be better. A downside to this unit is the poor build quality of the microphone that comes with the purchase. You must be very careful and not drop it! However, the sound quality the microphone produces is clear and does the job.

Running below $600 on amazon, the MUSYSIC M-Port PA2K 2000W is one of the ultimate battery-powered PA system combinations on the market. Since both wireless microphones coming with the purchase can connect directly to the mixer, there’s no need to purchase an additional receiver. They both produce a decent quality of sound and are great for speeches. 

With 2000 watts, this PA system gets really loud. Covering a medium to a large audience will not be a problem with this system. It has a built-in rechargeable battery that lasts up to 4-5 hours. Considering this system has five channels, you can throw a mini-concert and mic your entire band in the wilderness.

That’s unless you play in an eight-piece band. If you prefer jamming music on your phone, it has Bluetooth connectivity or SD/USB capabilities. Both speakers are not battery-powered. You must plug both speakers directly into the battery-powered mixer.

The sound quality is very good. Considering the low price for all of the gear this system comes with, I wasn’t expecting great sound quality. However, I was mistaken. The MUSYSIC M-Port PA2K 2000W produces very clear and loud sound quality. The mids are punchy, and the highs sparkle.

It does, however, lack a bit of the low. I had to adjust a bit of EQ to fatten the low end. Many people use this wireless PA system for larger events than classrooms and conferences. It’s best for speeches, musical performances, medium-sized events, weddings, or small to medium DJ gigs. Overall, I highly recommend the MUSYSIC M-Port PA2K 2000W for anyone in need of a good quality battery-powered wireless PA system.

The PRORECK FREEDOM 15 is yet another battery-powered PA system with two wireless microphones. It provides a staggering 800 watts of power. A few things I like about this system is its compression driver with a 1.35″ titanium diaphragm and 15″ Woofer. In other words, the sound is rich, clear, and full. In case the sound doesn’t fit your expectations or what you’re looking for, the EQ knobs on the back will most likely do the trick for just about any voice type.

This portable system provides roughly 30 feet of range, which is quite decent for a wireless PA using a Bluetooth connection. It too uses wheels with a pull-up latch for much easier maneuvering. The remote control works relatively well and is self-explanatory and simple to use for changing features. Unlike every other wireless PA on this list, it also comes with a mountable speaker stand.

Next up, the battery-powered Samson Expedition XP106W has an exceptionally well-balanced and clear sound. The build of this entire system can last, making your investment worth it. In terms of battery life, the unit is very well able to last for much longer durations compared to most other wireless PA systems.

Not to forget, it’s extremely loud and can hold clear audio at higher levels. I most definitely recommend this system for those in need of a wireless PA and mic to cover up to 200 people.

The bright and well-balanced sound of the Samson Expedition XP106W, in my opinion, is about the closest to a real setup it gets while remaining all wireless. In terms of reliability, the connection is robust. I experienced zero dropouts or cutouts due to signal interference while using this system. The speaker is very durable and was built to last.

An Effortless setup, only a few button presses needed. This system is our top choice if you’re in need of a portable wireless solution for vocals of any sort.
