Product Description

Samson

Samson makes public address simple with an all-in-one portable sound system that offers everything you need to deliver a professional and memorable presentation: The Expedition XP40iw.

To ensure pristine, full-range sound, the Expedition XP40iw (XP40iw) employs a 6-inch woofer and a 1-inch high frequency driver. The unit features a 40 watt Class D amplifier that is perfectly matched to the driver for high efficiency and low current draw. It provides a built-in VHF wireless microphone system that's ideal for any number of vocal applications. An internal iPod dock with level control also gives you the option of incorporating songs or other MP3s into your performance. Plus, with bass and treble control you can tweak your sound to appropriately match your specific setting and audience.

High-quality components, professional features and convenient portability make Samson's XP40iw a consummate single system solution to a wide range of public address applications, including tour groups, classrooms, conference/meeting rooms, health clubs, outdoor events and even small auditoriums.

Integrated iPod Dock

Use the integrated iPod dock to add background audio to your presentations. Plug in your iPod or iPhone to play music or sound effects that you can talk or sing over, or simply share music with friends and family. A level control lets you adjust the background volume separately from the main volume.

Wireless Mic

The included VHF wireless mic makes it easy to address crowds without sacrificing mobility. Combined with the powerful wireless microphone system, the XP40iw is the perfect solution for crowd interaction when a PA isn't available.

Rechargeable Battery

A built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery pack powering the 40-watt speaker and wireless mic makes the XP40iw supremely portable. Thanks to the lack of need for a power cable, this wireless microphone and speaker can truly go anywhere and everywhere.

In the Boardroom

With the XP40iw, your voice will command the boardroom podium with as much authority as the main stage. The XP40iw provides the perfect solution for a business professional leading any sort of presentation. No matter the application, from PowerPoint presentations to company meetings and corporate events, you can convey your ideas in a clear, concise manner and perform your job better. You can even use the XP40iw's integrated iPod dock to playback audio clips, promoting a more interactive listening experience for any audience.

In the Classroom

Students, teachers, and professors will find that the XP40iw possesses some functions unique to music education. Its built-in VHF wireless microphone system is ideal for directing large instrumental ensembles. The XP40iw will help conductors keep even their percussionists on task. Thanks to its integrated iPod dock, soloists and small ensembles can practice along with recorded accompaniment. Also, the XP40iw's audio playback abilities make the analysis of recorded music easier, as well as a more interactive listening and educational experience.

At the Karaoke Club or Coffeehouse

Though the XP40iw was designed for providing quality sound reinforcement in public address settings, the range of musical settings that can benefit from the system's features is substantial. Whether you're a singer/songwriter gigging in a small coffee shop or a karaoke diva captivating the audience in a medium-sized club, the XP40iw will ensure your sound is well suited for your space.

Wherever Your Guitar Goes

The XP40iw can also hold its own as a portable guitar amplifier. Simply plug your electric guitar and effects board into the XP40iw and you are ready to rock your hardest alongside your fellow bandmates or your favorite iPod playlist. Bring the music outdoors, as the XP40iw and an acoustic guitar are the perfect pair for a classic fire pit jam session. Wherever your guitar goes, the XP40iw goes.

By the Pool

The XP40iw's portability makes it ideal for countless recreational uses. For a traveling instructor, the XP40iw is perfect for leading exercise/yoga classes in fitness clubs. Outdoor functions pose no problem whatsoever for the XP40iw. Block parties, sporting events, and matters of crowd control now have a more practical, and still extremely portable, alternative to the megaphone. The XP40iw would be a particularly great addition to your backyard, ideal for providing musical entertainment during barbeques and pool parties.

Fabulous warm but clear sound.

I found that the battery was fully charged, but that it would not supply power.

There was no power available so I looked into renting a portable PA system.

My daughter was recently married in an outdoor setting. I've been to other outdoor ceremonies where you can't really hear what's going on due to the wind, birds, etc. There was no power available so I looked into renting a portable PA system. I didn't find one available. There were systems that required power that rent for almost the cost of the Samson, so I gambled and bought my own system. The Samson worked great. The best man sang and played his electric acoustic guitar at one point in the ceremony and it sounded terrific. We had set it up the day before during rehearsal to find the best setting for mixing the vocals and guitar, an easy thing to do.

After the DJ shutdown at 10pm at the reception, in a large barn, we fired up the Samson and played the music on our iPhones. The Samson was running on batteries until 2am with no issues, this was after being used at the ceremony.

We've recharged it and used several times since then and it's still working great. The Mic is crystal clear and has great range. The speaker, while mono, sounds like a concert speaker, if you know what I mean.

I bought the On Stage SS7730 speaker stand with it to keep it off the ground for improved sound. They work perfectly together.

I would definitely recommend this product.

I wanted a speaker system to play music from my ipod during sports practices. This works great. It's small but extremely powerful. You can connect your ipod on the dock OR I use the inputs on the back of the speaker. It fills the gym with clear loud sound. I've also used the wireless microphone to do team introductions and it works great. Well built, solid, portable and powerful. It does everything I want it to do.

I bought this unit to serve as an *Extremely* portable PA system for the heavy athletics at a small Scottish Highland Games. In my situation I will never be more than about 60-70 feet from the wireless antenna/speaker, and of course this is outdoors. I need the system to make my commentary audible for about 75-100 feet, but not more than that so that it doesn't compete with musical acts on the main stage. When I need to walk over to the area where our athletes throw the caber, I will just pick it up and carry it the 150-100 feet and set it down again and start announcing. No problem. The built-in handle is comfortable, but even if it wasn't, the thing just doesn't weigh that much.

I just got it today, and it arrived with the units battery charged, so I set it up and tried it in my back yard. With an old 9v battery in the microphone, and a completely clear line of sight to the unit, I could stand 70-75 feet away from the unit and my voice projected with no cutouts. With a fresh battery, I'm pretty sure that will go up to 100 feet. I could easily hear myself at that distance and I only had the volume up halfway. The only downside is that there's a fair bit of noise generated within the microphone, from the battery wiggling around. I think I'm going to have to tape it in there. another review that I've read said the same thing. If they solved that issue, I'd have given this unit five stars.

It took me about 20 seconds to figure out how to set up my ipod on the dock. After twiddling with the bass and treble knobs, I got a perfectly acceptable sound out of it. It's not like booming a band through a several-hundred-watt concert system, but hey....I could easily hear the music and enjoy it from 50 feet away and from 20 feet away it sounded pretty good to me.

Bought this unit for club meetings in September of 2012. After about 3 months it stopped working. It seemed to power up but no sound, nothing, anywhere. The members trying to use it tried to contact Samson without success for help. They finally just stored it and forgot it in frustration. I recently took possession and quickly confirmed that it was inoperative. Now it was out of warranty, and finding a place to get help was total frustration. Samson was of no help. It was flashing a red/green light on the back near the power switch when the power adapter was plugged in. The manual had no information as to what that indicated. The previous user had installed a new battery, which offered no remedy. I found that the battery was fully charged, but that it would not supply power.
I finally learned how to disassemble the unit, (not at all obvious) and found deep inside behind the speaker assembly, behind a cover, on a printed circuit board was a blown fuse. I replaced the fuse after a trip to a local electronics store, which fixed the unit.
This is the absolute epitome of bad design for a simple fuse replacement. Unbelievable! You should be able to replace a fuse in 30 seconds with no tools. Otherwise I would give this unit a 5. I now know that the red/green flasher indicates "blown fuse", which disconnects the battery from the unit, but not the power supply. But this unit is designed so that it will not work without a battery even when the power supply is plugged in. So if the fuse goes, you are done.

We have this at our golf course to use for tournaments and special events. It works great. The ipod feature is great and sounds wonderful. I have noticed when people talk loudly into the mic it tends to crackle a little bit. But for what we use this for it gets the job done.
