Harbinger Pro Audio has expanded its VARI Series of live sound solutions with the VARI 2300 powered portable loudspeakers, which offer built-in connectivity and DSP features.
The new series includes the VARI V2312 2-way loudspeaker, with a 12-inch low-frequency driver ($249.99); the VARI V2315 2-way loudspeaker, with a 15-inch low-frequency driver ($299.99); and the VARI V2318S subwoofer ($599.99), with an 18-inch driver.
VARI 2300 Series 2-way loudspeakers feature a high-frequency compression driver, a 2,000 watt (peak) Class D amplifier that delivers ample power without employing heavy transformers, and onboard DSP and mixing capabilities, packaged in a rugged yet lightweight polypropolene enclosure. The result is 126 dB SPL for the 35-pound V2312 and 127 dB SPL for the 41-pound V2315. With built-in pole mounts and angled cabinets for use as floor wedges, the V2312 and V2315 are equally valuable as front of house or monitor loudspeakers.
Each VARI 2300 Series loudspeaker incorporates a three-channel mixer featuring two mono channels, each with a XLR-1/4-inch combo mic/guitar/line input, and a stereo channel with 1/8-inch stereo aux minijack, Bluetooth, and L/R 1/4–inch line inputs for a total of eight simultaneous inputs. Onboard two-band EQ is easy to dial in, and a simple button allows users to select among four DSP voicings: Standard, Vocal Boost, Live, and Floor Monitor/Wall.
A built-in DSP limiter offers transparent dynamics control for musical-sounding system protection at high volume, and the new Smart Stereo feature lets users run a single XLR cable between two VARI 2300 Series loudspeakers and control them both from the left side.
The V2318S subwoofer offers 2,400 watts
of peak power for 134 dB of lows in an 86-pound package. It includes inputs and outputs for two loudspeakers, a switchable 90 Hz/120 Hz crossover, phase reverse, DSP limiter, and built-in locking roll casters for easy load-in.
