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, VARIAi’s highly configurable enclosures and ingenious hardware make it easy to custom design an array for every application.

VARIA101i 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 VARIAi 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. 

VA101i cabinets are self-powered with integral PF2-500R DSP and CobraNet enabled amp modules. VAX101i enclosures require external amplification and DSP processing.

The VA101i-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 VA101i-7 is arrayable from 0º to 7.5º in 1.5º steps.

The VAX101i-7 is a passive version of the same system.
