VA/VAX101-15

VARIA101 Array Modules are built around a high power 10-inch 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 articulated 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 PF2-500R DSP and Cobranet enabled amp modules. VAX101 enclosures require external amplification and DSP processing.



The VA101-15 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 wave-guide options. The VA101-15 is arrayable at 15º.

The VAX101-15 is a passive version of the same system.

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 Consulting
