Galaxy Audio’s PA6BT Powered Hot Spot continues to be the industry standard in compact near-field live stage vocal monitoring. By minimizing the audio footprint and positioning the monitor in closer proximity to the performer, stage clutter and noise is drastically reduced for a more professional appearance and performance. The lightweight portability of Galaxy Audio compact monitors makes them ideal for gigging musicians and smaller stage venues.
The Powered HOT SPOT® PA6BT personal monitor focuses on live vocal reproduction. The need for a near-field vocal monitor became apparent as stage volumes became increasingly more difficult to control. The Powered HOT SPOT® PA6BT offers the perfect solution for many live stage and portable PA applications. The PA6BT can be mounted on a microphone stand, positioning the monitor in closer proximity to the user and reducing feedback on stage. The mic stand socket and included mic stand adapter on the PA6BT is designed for use with most mic stands. The integrated handle, mic boom mount, and built-in bracket mount points, combined with the optional MBA (mic boom adaptor), allows a gooseneck or microphone boom to be mounted on top of the unit for a clean monitor set-up.
Many performers purchase cumbersome 12″ or 15″ floor monitors, roll off the low end and crank up the volume in order to cut through the mix. The Full Range PA6BT’s front facing EQ allows the performer to boost the mid-range, and minimal distance to the performer reduces stage volume and feedback. Galaxy Audio Compact Monitors feature a small, lightweight design, making it easier to transport and is the perfect choice for audio clarity and articulation in hostile stage environments.
The Original Near-Field Compact Personal Vocal Monitor is still the preferred choice by audio professionals worldwide.

The PA6BT takes full advantage of recent improvements in speaker and amplifier technology, making it the lightest, most powerful, and cleanest sounding compact PA system we have ever offered. Features include Bluetooth® technology with its own volume control, a 155 watt NEOLITE 6.5″ Woofer, and our highly efficient 1.5″ 60 watt Tweeter. XLR pass-through on both channels 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 including tape or digital media players as well as line level instruments.
The two-way speaker system gives the PA6BT Powered Personal Monitor 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. The enhanced frequency response makes the PA6BT a great stand-alone PA system for small club gigs, lectures and A/V presentations. A simple adjustment of the 3-band EQ can tailor the response for singers who love the time-honored accentuated midrange of the classic Hot Spot vocal monitor. The PA6BT gives you the versatility you expect for diverse stage set-ups.
The PA6BT comes equipped with a built-in high-tech Class D 170 watt amplifier, designed to handle the most demanding audio environments. This proven, robust design allows the PA6BT to function both as a stand-alone powered personal monitor system or a high-powered vocal monitor designed to cut through loud stage volumes. For larger gigs that require more coverage, simply patch from the Preamp Output to the main house PA, while using the PA6BT as your onstage monitor.
The PA6BT also features a built in 18dB Compressor/Limiter circuit with Compressor and Clip LEDs. The Compressor acts to smooth out transient peaks in the audio signal, resulting in improved overall sound quality and perceived volume. The Limiter is designed to protect the woofer and tweeter from possible damage caused by amplifier distortion. The Clip LED indicates when a reduction in volume is recommended.
