Over 30 years ago Galaxy Audio pioneered the small PA/personal monitor category with the innovative product called the HOT SPOT. Through the years we've offered groundbreaking designs in both powered and unpowered models. The all new redesigned Galaxy Audio PA6S is the newest powered model in the Hot Spot line since 1998. While the PA6S has been redesigned from the ground up, we have kept the basics. The newly designed outer shell has kept the distinctive shape of the original Hot Spot, but with a 21st Century look. The cabinet now uses two specially designed speaker components, the new 155 watt NEOLITE 6.5" Woofer and our highly efficient 1.5" 60 watt Tweeter. 

The PA6S takes full advantage of recent improvements in speaker and amplifier technology, making it the lightest, most powerful, and best sounding compact PA system we've ever offered. New features such as the XLR pass-through on each channel allow independent control of mics without affecting the signal sent to the house PA. A –20dB Pad switch on each XLR input ensures that even the hottest signals will be accepted without overdriving the inputs. An additional 1/8” Line input on Channel 2 will accept stereo or mono signals from sources such as tape or digital medial players as well as line level instruments. 

The new two-way speaker system gives the PA6S a much wider frequency response than earlier models. This means that full range music, such as keyboards or backing tracks, will come through with solid bass and crisp highs. This enhanced frequency response makes the PA6S a great stand-alone PA system for small club gigs as well as lectures and A/V presentations. Plus a simple adjustment of the 3-band EQ can alter the response for singers who love the time-honored accentuated midrange of the classic Hot Spot vocal monitor. The PA6S gives you the best of both worlds. 

The PA6S has a built in 170 watt amplifier designed to handle the most demanding audio situations. This high tech Class D amplifier produces plenty of power to cover a wide variety of applications. This design allows the PA6S to function both as a stand-alone PA system and as a high-powered vocal monitor to cut through loud stage volumes. For larger gigs that require more coverage, you may simply patch from the Preamp Output to the main house PA, while using the PA6S as your onstage monitor.

The PA6S also features a built in 18dB Compressor/Limiter circuit with Compressor and Clip LEDs. The Compressor acts to smooth out transient peaks in the signals, thus improving overall sound quality and increasing apparent volume. The Limiter helps protect the woofer and tweeter from being damaged by amplifier distortion. The Clip LED indicates when a reduction in volume is recommended.

"After years of wishing for a small powered speaker for my small private gigs and rehearsals, my dreams have been answered a hundredfold. The Galaxy PA6S is simply the best small monitoring system that I have ever heard that is on the market today. I am able to play 6-7 note Full piano chords, organ and synth leads at sustained high levels without ANY distortion, yet maintaining a brilliant clarity that fills rooms much larger than I thought capable of.  Nothing… I mean NOTHING, gets close!  I am a Galaxy fan for Life!"

Life Saver Sand/Water Bag LSR38

The Galaxy Audio Life Saver is a unique equipment stand stabilizer that may be used in a variety of ways in Audio, Video, Lighting, and Theatre applications. Any mic or speaker stand may become unstable because of a top-heavy center of gravity, a boom extended laterally, or simply because the stand is set on an uneven surface. When filled with Sand or Water the Life Saver provides enough weight at the bottom to stabilize most mic and speaker stand applications. The doughnut shape of the LSR38 ensures that the Life Saver will stay on the base of the stand, even if the stand is pushed or bumped. The LSR38 weighs 38lbs. when filled with sand, and 22lbs. when filled with water. The durable reinforced vinyl material and easy-fill water tight design allow the user to transport the Life Saver empty, and fill with water on location. The LSR38 dimensions are: 16" O.D. x 6" I.D. x 3" Thick. The Life Saver will pay for itself the first time it prevents your expensive mics or speakers from hitting the floor. (Sand/water not included)

  • May be filled with sand or water 
  • Protects mics and speakers from damage
  • Helps keep microphone, speaker and lighting stands upright
  • Sand/Water not included
  • Unique doughnut shape keeps bag on the stand

Saddle Bag Sand/Water Bag SDB40

The Saddle Bag Sand/Water Bag is designed to help improve the stability of speaker, keyboard, mic, lighting stands and many other types of stands. Also great as a boom counterweight. The Saddle Bag is constructed of a durable reinforced vinyl. When filled with sand (not included) the Saddle Bag weighs approximately 40lbs and 25lbs when filled with water. The filled Saddle Bag will help stabilize a top- heavy stand.

Works great on keyboard, speaker, mic, lighting, and many other types of stands.

Great for: bands, churches, theater, broadcast, recording & video production

  • Dual wing design
  • Nylon handle with clip
  • May be filled with sand or water 
  • Helps protect equipment from damage and keeps stands upright and stable

Sand can be acquired at most home improvement centers, concrete supply warehouses, landscaping supply houses or a sand blasting supply company. Tip: Coarse dry commercial sand works best. Use a funnel for faster fills. Equipped with large 1-inch inner diameter plugs for ease of filling.

WARNING
1. We are not responsible for any damage caused by the use or misuse of the bag. 
2. The water bag should not be used near electrical wiring. 
3. Only dry sand should be used in a dry bag. 
4. Water should not be left in the bag for long periods. 
5. Do not subject the bag to freezing weather when filled with water. 
6. The bag is not intended as a flotation device.

    The PA6S powered monitor makes for a unique keyboard monitor when performing live club/concert gigs. When affixed to my keyboard stand via the SA-1 adapter (and KSA7575 from another mfg), I have an extremely powerful and easily adjusted source of my keyboard sound and does not add to my stage footprint. No matter who or what I have to contend with on any stage; Indoors or out, loud drummers, full-stacks of amps, with or without a sound engineer... I have a reliable and consistent keyboard amp. The PA6S does not offer the 3-D sound of a Leslie or 'chest-thumping' lows of a full-range cabinet (let the PA system handle those matters), but it is a monitor and I never have to struggle to hear exactly what I'm playing... with 170 WRMS right at my fingertips and in my face. I also discovered it to be a successful vocal/acoustic guitar monitor when used as part of my 'coffee house' rental PA system. I get lots of compliments from rental clients who have no experience with 'Hot Spot' style monitors! The reasons I selected the PA6S monitor over the competitor's models was due to several engineering/design features I felt were more desirable and my past experience in the field with other Galaxy Audio products. I have been using the PA6S personally (and as a rental unit) for several years now without any issues.
