VARIAi Modular Installation Array
VARIAi Modular Installation Array Systems are designed to be the most flexible and versatile loudspeakers available. Highly configurable enclosures and ingenuous hardware make it easy to tailor each speaker to every application.
Integrating only the highest quality components, VARIAi employs powerful low-frequency woofers and lightweight neodymium Compression Drivers, all coupled to the most advanced cabinet and waveguide designs. The result is a system that delivers the sound and performance you’ve come to expect from Renkus-Heinz.
Three Cabinet Angles for Vertical Control
VARIAi 101 full-range models are available in three vertical cabinet angles, 7.5º, 15º and 22.5º allowing vertical coverage to be easily tailored to meet shape and SPL requirements for every venue. 15º and 22.5º cabinets can be used to cover greater vertical angles while 7.5º cabinets provide tighter control.
Five Waveguide Options for Horizontal Coverage
Each cabinet can be ordered with one of five WaveGuides, choose from 60º, 90º or 120º standard WaveGuides or VARIAi's unique 60º to 90º, or 90º to 120º, Transitional WaveGuides.
Three System Configurations
VARIAi can be configured in three basic system styles:
Modular Point Source Array - For applications with large vertical coverage angles.
Modular Line Array - For applications requiring Line Array throw and performance.
Horizontal Point Source Array - For accurate horizontal coverage built in 22.5º increments.
EASE Focus II Simulation Software
VARIA101i DLL data in EASE and EASE Focus II simulation software tools allows users and system designers to quickly and accurately predict the response of the array.
Simply define the audience areas and you can easily position the array, add or remove cabinets, and adjust its height, location and angle until you achieve the desired results in the simulation.
Singapore | December, 2016 - "Complete coverage from the stall to the upper balcony level is achieved with only five cabinets per array. For this venue, the VARIAi triumphs over a traditional line array, both sonically and visually." - Chua Cong Wei, Electro-Acoustics Systems Pte Ltd
Calgary, AB, Canada | November, 2016 - "The Institute is a showpiece for us. We've always been champions of technology for learning, and in this building, we explore many different technological approaches. In the Forum, Renkus-Heinz loudspeakers ensured we could deliver an audio system that fully supports the Institute's goals." - Travis Seibel, The Sextant GroupRead More
Greenwich, CT | August, 2016 - "We chose VARIAi because a primary consideration was a high-quality, tight line array that would keep the sound off the walls and on the audience." Curtis Kasefang, Theatre Consultants Collaborative (TCC) Raleigh, North CarolinaRead More
Bay St. Louis, Mississippi | March, 2016 - "VARIAi fit perfectly in the original speaker cluster position. The narrow vertical dispersion prevented splashing on the rest of the platform, and the horizontal dispersion let me use one cabinet where I would otherwise have to use several." - Eric Ross, Engineered Lighting and SoundRead More
Lake Orion, Michigan | March, 2016 - "We chose the VARIAi for its ability to shape the coverage for the room, in both the vertical and horizontal planes. With the VARIA's variable coverage patterns, we were able to configure a system using fewer cabinets than we would have needed with a standard line array" - Bob Sullivan, Advanced Lighting and SoundRead More
Blairsville, Georgia | October, 2015 - "One reason we liked Renkus-Heinz VARIAi is that we could change the width as we went higher in the stack. With other loudspeakers, we would have had issues with sound hitting the side walls." - Jason Leatherwood, Southern A&ERead More
New Delhi, India | September, 2015 - "We have worked with Renkus-Heinz on similar projects in the past, with excellent results, and we were confident that their technology was ideally suited for this type of a challenge. Their VARIA technology enabled us to design a system that would provide very precise coverage to only the audience areas, while minimizing the sound to areas that would generate problematic reflections." - Vipul Vaghela, BAPSRead More
Homestead, FL | February, 2015 - "When they walked in, their jaws dropped. They had dealt with poor coverage for so many years, it was amazing to them – to have every corner of the room covered perfectly, and how the PA cuts off right at the platform's edge. They could not believe how much clearer it sounded. VARIA's modular design enabled us to create a system with the power of a line array, but with the pattern control to cover the room very nicely." - Robert Bernecker, SEFI ConsultingRead More
Roebuck, SC | November, 2014 - "VARIA was an ideal choice for this venue because its variable coverage pattern enabled us to use fewer boxes to achieve the same coverage. The result was a reduction in both cost and weight, as well as improved sightlines." - David Clyburn, MusicraftRead More
Jackson, MS | October, 2014 - "The VARIA system was the best option to achieve the versatility we needed. VARIA's modular design gave us a lot of flexibility in terms of system placement and configuration. And VARIA's range of vertical and horizontal dispersion angles, together with its transitional waveguides, enabled us to custom configure a system that easily addressed the multiple challenges we had to deal with in the hall." - Philip Boyd, Academic TechnologiesRead More
Los Angeles, CA | May, 2014 - Occidental College is known as one of America's oldest liberal arts colleges, with a stellar alumni list that includes President Barack Obama, actors Ben Affleck and Joanna Gleason, animator/filmmaker Terry Gilliam, athlete-turned-politician Jack Kemp, and many more.Read More
Chattanooga, TN | March, 2014 - "We set up a demo, and it was just night and day. With the VARIA array, we were able to taper the coverage and focus the sound on the seating area, without hitting all those walls and reflective surfaces." - Tracy Miller, DB Technologies.Read More
Long Beach, CA | February, 2014 - "The IC2 delivers such even sound pressure level from front to back. When we did the demo, it was set up at the far end of the arena and shot down the long way. You could walk the whole space, cover the floor, and keep it a solid 98 db SPL from one side to the other." - Andy Batwinas, ElectrosonicsRead More
Oakland, CA | February, 2014 - "Typical line arrays would only provide the right directivity in one plane. The client wanted a line array system that would provide the output and headroom for the sound they create, and VARIA fit the bill perfectly." - Rocky Giannetta, Layer 8, Inc.Read More
Long Beach, CA | December, 2013 - "We couldn't be happier with the new VARIA system. Our customer base noticed immediately. It's loud, clear, and clean, without blowing people away. Thanks to the new VARIA system, we are now known as the premiere live music venue in Southern California." -- Mike Neufeld, Owner, The GaslampRead More
Cartersville, GA | October, 2013 - "Being able to select among several boxes with different coverage patterns, and particularly being able to choose transitional boxes in between the fixed ones, makes a tremendous difference in designing a system. It's almost as if every box is custom, but you don't have to wait six weeks or pay top dollar." - Kent Morris, Principal, Cornerstone Media Group.Read More
