    Can't find anything on here or online. Nothing I really want anyway.

    What I want is a wedge.
    Which is wireless. No wires.
    No power cord - runs off a battery (2-3hr life, less than a 2 day charge)
    Receives the feed from a wireless transmitter.

    If it exists, is the price likely to be silly high (I guess it will).

    Running cables (one/two) is not a problem, was just something I'm looking into.

    Edit: no dinky toys, I'm talking 10"/100W (the current amp) or higher. Enough for several vocalists to stand 5 feet from.

    And you want this all to be built into a single box? Really you must be joking?

    How about a battery-powered amplified speaker like an Anchor, with a wireless receiver as used in wireless in ear monitors, patched into the speakers input? I think that's the closest you'll find?

    Monkey hear? Monkey do?

    Yeah, I think I'll be giving up on this.

    Monkey see on RO, Monkey try and realise he can't.

    When able, use a cable.

    Agreed. But you can go to Galaxy Audio on the internet and check out their AnySpot powered speaker...

    The AnySpot looks like a lot of other stuff I came across. It's a wireless PA system, not just a battery powered speaker.

    Build one.

    Get an automotive amp which runs off 12v and use a truck battery. Just be sure to include a protection circuit which will cut off when the battery gets down to about 10.5 or 11v. Flattening lead acid batteries ruins them.

    As always, late to the party.

    Klein & Hummel is a division of Sennheiser and K&H makes the PAS 100 which is a battery powered bi-amped fullrange speaker. It's not in wedge form, it's not 100w, it hasn't got the 10" woofer. .... Other than that, it's perfect!

    But it's the closest thing I've ever seen that gets anywhere near what you're looking for.

    Specs at a glance:
    80 watts total
    8" woofer
    1" horn
    50 watts to lows
    30 watts to highs
    Battery powered
    A variety of Sennheiser wireless options

    If you're interested you can check the detailed specs here:

    I would have no idea what they go for over there. Like most K&H equipment they're probably not cheap.

    Thanks dvdhawk, but it's another one of these "all in one" PA boxes.

    As a matter of fact I think this whole idea was daft from the start.

    I would not want to use wireless in this manner. I prefer no wireless for sonics. Now in the US I REALLY prefer wired everything as things are going to be very iffy in some markets without major re-investments in new and/or better technology.
