About the FireFly 

The FireFly is a highly portable weatherproof PA system optimized for maximum voice clarity and volume. Need to project music, sound effects, and voice? Consider the DragonFly – same size as FireFly but with full-range performance.

The Firefly can easily be transported and set up by one person. A clamp-on front lid and latching rear control cover makes the unit self-casing for transport, and ‘dunk-able’. A molded-in stand mount socket on the bottom of the unit and inserts on the sides for yoke mounting give the Firefly a range of deployment options. With a powerful compression driver coupled with an efficient 3d-generation horn (with an anti-resonant design for superior performance), the Firefly is capable of producing highly intelligible audio at 130 dB SPL.
