Tech: Small, inexpensive PA system

We're looking for the least costly way to amplify our Preacher's voice during his sermon. Our "church" is a small converted barn, and there is usually a small number of folks in attendance. We have virtually no budget, so the cost will be covered by contributions. It doesn't need to be high-tech or anything like that. I have seen some small units that sit right on a shelf of the podium, and wattage output does not need to be much. Any suggestions? Thanks. pbb

Thanks for all the thread links. However, and maybe I'm dreaming, but I'm thinking of the type of unit I see sometimes at American Legion posts, and service clubs, that is just a very small unit, that sits on a shelf of their podium, and almost looks like a CB radio-type gizmo. Also, we REALLY NEED to keep the cost down, maybe under $100. Am I asking too much?? Thanks   pbb

A Radio Shack karaoke can be used as a PA with one or two mic inputs. No good at all for music, OK for voice, and records sermons onto a built-in tape deck. Cheeeeep!

Maybe you could look for something used. I have the Fender Passport 250 but they make a smaller, cheaper 150 Model that that would probably work for sermons and basic music. I think it's more than $100 but if you check the classifieds or e-bay you might find one....

First of all, STAY AWAY FROM a brand called HISONICS. If you check out ebay, you can get a small voice amplification unit for around $59.00. The unit has a belt and can be worn around the waist. These are small, but good for the money.
