VA/VX101-7

Modular Point Source Line Array

VARIA's fully modular design enables cabinets to be easily configured as flown vertical arrays, powerful horizontal arrays, or ground stacked systems. With a range of vertical and horizontal dispersion angles and Renkus-Heinz’s unique Transitional WaveGuides, VARIA’s highly configurable enclosures and ingenious hardware make it easy to custom design an array for every application.

VA/VX101-7

VARIA101 Array Modules are built around a high power 10" Low Frequency woofer coupled with either one or two neodymium High Frequency Compression Drivers. These audiophile quality components coupled with Renkus-Heinz unique Tuned Conic Diverter WaveGuide, ensure the optimum sound quality and arrayability.

7.5º VARIA cabinets employ concealed flying hardware to hang and array like traditional line arrays, 15º and 22.5º cabinets are fixed curvature and must be tight pack arrayed. 

VA101 cabinets are self-powered with integral SA1250 amp modules. Amplifier options include RHAON II Empowered and RHAON II with Dante versions. VX101 enclosures require external bi-amplification and DSP processing.



The VA101-7 is designed using a single 10-inch Low Frequency Woofer and two 1-inch High Frequency Compression Drivers. Available in 60º, 90º, and 120º standard configurations, as well as with 60º/90º and 90/120º transitional WaveGuide options. The VA101-7 is arrayable from 0º to 7.5º in 1.5º steps.

The VX101-7 is the externally powered, bi-amplified version of the same system.
