OVERVIEW

Concert quality sound.

The APS15 from Harbinger combines a powerful 2-way loudspeaker, a simple mixer, and 200W of power into one convenient PA system. Featuring 3 channels with balanced and unbalanced inputs for microphones, music players or instruments, a 200W A/B amplifier, and a 15" speaker with a high horn driver, you get an active PA with flexibility, powerful reach, and concert quality sound. Equally capable of serving your needs in rehearsal spaces, small clubs, installs, banquet rooms, or outdoor events, the APS15 PA speaker is easy to setup, never wants for volume, and always provides full frequency, crystal-clear fidelity. With individual gain controls for each channel, 5-band graphic EQ, and a Master Output knob, you have the control you need to get the mix you want and the ability to tailor your sound to the distinct characteristics of any environment.

It makes a great mini PA for solo acts that play keyboards and sing.

I'll keep it simple - Acoustic 3-piece - We have used these for over 3 years at over 150 performances and they are as good as the day we bought them.. Add a sub-cabinet for larger venues.. These aren't high end quality but are 1/3 the price of JBL's and they sound good enough. Just recently used them with a powered sub to run sound for a 4- piece country band at an outdoor festivel. They held up but this was a stretch of their potential.. Worth the price!

After buying these and using them frequently (at least once weekly, often times more), i can say for certain that they are a very low quality. For a 15" speaker they don't hanlde a lot of watts, they clip easily, they hiss, they sound muddy even when eq'd, and there are plenty of other better alternatives. I don't even use this as a monitor because of all of the hiss. I used to run my pair as my drum monitors, but i have since upgraded to kustom powered monitors, and they sound better for a better price
Features are good; XLR 1/4" and RCA inputs and a graphic eq, but the onboard eq doesn't help at all
Seriously low quality. i purchased these in a cheap pa package and i was sorely disappointed. The quality just isn't there, everything sounds muddy and the speakers have a pretty harsh hiss to them when nothings coming through them
They're really cheap for a powered 15", but i would invest in something a little higher quality. I upgraded to two pv215 towers and crown power amps to run them, and the sound quality is far superior, a night and day difference

    Comments about Harbinger APS15 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    We use the APS 15 PA speaker for the power output for our VOCOPRO Jamcube. There is very low noise and great sound from the APS powered speaker. My Jamcube has inputs for CD/DVD, SD & USB cards, MP3 andCDG but not enough volume output for our auditorium. The APS 15 gives very low noise with more than enough volume for our auditorium.
    This is a very good unit for the price.

    Comments about Harbinger APS15 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    I have read all the bad reviews saying it breaks up when pushed. Maybe so. I am a single act (Guitar & vocal) so I'm not really pushing it that hard. It does a fine job for my requirements. It is heavy at 46 lbs, but still a good value for the money.

      While the bass is a bit weak, the sound is surprisingly good for the money especially considering I got this at STOTD. The built in EQ isn't very helpful so just leave it flat and use your own.

      Comments about Harbinger APS15 15" Powered PA Speaker:

      Loud and clear sound. The five band equalizer works great to cut the harsh highs and overly booming lows. Everyone has different tastes and the equalizer is definitely helpful in achieving your own sound. The multiple inputs are great. They would be very useful for a one man or small group to use without needing a mixer. The only complaint I have is the heat vents are in a awkward place if you use it as a floor monitor. Overall for the price of these monitors you really can't go wrong.

      Having the 5 band EQ in this self powered unit makes it perfect for main PA or monitors in a club environment or other small venue.

        Bought item as an opened item with full warranty. The 1st speaker came with one of the speakers rattling in the casing and no power cord. I had to send it back. The second speaker soundly like there was a blown speaker. The sound was horrible, and could be turned up as load as TV. I also had to send it back. 1st and last time I order Harbinger... No more
        Harbinger for me!

        Comments about Harbinger APS15 15" Powered PA Speaker:

        I already had an APS12 that I got for free with another MF purchase (Kustom 210 unpowered monitors)so when I saw an APS15 in grade 1 condition, I picked it up. The APS15 is much larger than its 12" sibling and quite a bit heavier as well. While these are no JBL or QSC, they are also much more affordable. These units are great for solo or duet acts or for use as monitors. I have used them as satellite/remote PA for 4th of July events that needed a bit more sound reinforcement to some adjacent grassy areas around the main pavillion that the FOH mains weren't covering.

        As far as the condition of the grade 1 unit, the only damage I can find is on one of the feet. That and there was no original packaging.

        Would I pay full price for an APS15? No. I am a buyer at the discount pricing however. An APS15 makes for a good backup, although the APS12 is much more convenient size-wise. I've even used them as passive sub-woofers by placing them on top of empty Rubbermaid bins and only sending bass from the crossover/loudspeaker management rack.

        So if your budget is constrained, these can do the trick for you. Don't expect whomping bass, you'll need external subwoofers for that. But for a small vocal and keys or vocal and acoustic event, these will fit the bill.

        Comments about Harbinger APS15 15" Powered PA Speaker:

        I am a professional Audio-Visual tech of over 40 years experience in setting up all kinds of PA systems for all kinds of venues. Many have shot down this powered speaker but I have found it to be quite capapable in many many situations. The most important feature is the built in five band EQ. I usually set the lowest bass slider to the "detent" position, the No.2 slider also to the detent. The mid slider to the first mark just above the detent. The mid high band slider to half a notch above the detent, and finally the fifth slider high end to the mid or detent position. If for any reason I need a bit more bass I use the second slider moved to half a notch above detent position. The systems are suitable for small to medium venues and will provide all the room filling sound you should need. In a slightly larger than medium venue I use FOUR of these systems so I can move more air. The built in mixer for mics and line in and out is very nice and I have had great results in using all the features of this compact powered speaker system. The key here to good performance from this system is the proper use of the BUILT IN equalizer. IF you have to do a BIG venue gig then you WOULD be better off using a much higher end system for when driven to high levels this system even in multiples of six or eight is still not quite adequate. For small to just above medium venues it is just fine, especially if you can use FOUR of them.
