I'd seen people suggest Chattervox on another list but the reviews weren't
so good.

A challenge for any gear would be feedback [sound emitted from the speaker
feeding into the vocal mic...back into the system...repeat until is

This other one also got mixed reviews:


This might be more robust but also heavier:


Smaller speaker and you'll have less bass/more distortion when turned up.

Better to have some way of adjusting EQ on whatever is used to be able to
turn down the lower end bass range so you'll increase clarity and reduce
proximity effect.
