VA/VX15S

The self-powered VA15Si and externally amplified VAX15Si are ideal companions to VARIA101i array modules. The high-power 15-inch woofer delivers outstanding low-frequency impact in a design that maximizes the efficiency of this cutting edge woofer technology.

VA/VX15S


Low-frequency output extends down below 40 Hz and delivers a peak SPL output of up to 129 dB, providing a solid foundation for any musical performance.

VA/VX15S subwoofers can be ground stacked and used as a sturdy base for one or more VARIA array modules. They can also be flown as separate low frequency arrays, or flown at the top of full-range VARIA arrays, keeping the entire system off the floor.

Together, VARIA array modules and VARIA subwoofers provide a high-power, full-range system capable of handling the most demanding musical performances, especially in difficult acoustical environments.
