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:

It is very large and weighs in at 46 pounds. It has a sturdy handle, but I load it on a cart to move it. There are 2 XLR and 1/4" mic connections and an RCA and XLR instrument/line IN. Line out is XLR and 1/4". Each have separate volume controls and a master volume. The equalizer is a little difficult to use because of its location. It has enough volume to fill a gym, church or auditorium. The sound is very clean, up to about 3/4 volume. At higher volumes it gets a little distortion. It handles reverb and chorus pedals well. I haven't tried any others. It looks and feels road worthy. If it only had push button wheels and hideaway wings. All things considered it is a pretty decent unit. You can't get more power and quality at this price point. I looked and read reviews for a couple of weeks before deciding on the Harbinger 15". Tough, well built, lots of power, good sound, versatile.

    Comments about Harbinger APS15 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    This most recent purchase is our second pair of these Harbingers. The first pair (w/2 previous reviews) finally, after 5+ yrs of heavy duty use, developed a slight crackle in the horns at higher volumes. So we retired the old ones to home and monitor use and now hoist the new pair onto the stands.

    Honestly, I'm not sure the new ones sound quite as full as the old ones. Not sure why. Nor do they feel quite as heavy. Maybe it's just me.

    Regardless, if this second pair provides the service we got (and still get) from the original 'Headbangers', we'll be completely satisfied. ESPECIALLY on sale at 100 bux off! DEAL!

    Comments about Harbinger APS15 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    When one of my band members and the owner of our PA left the band I picked up a pair of these on sale to tide us over. I didn't have great expectations but I figured they would hold us until we could get something else. I was very suprised at the quality of the sound that these units can produce. It does take some tweeking however since with everything set flat the speakers are very bassey, but some adjustments of the Graphic EQ on the speakers and some adjustments at the mixer smoothed them out nicely. They have plenty of power for small to midsize rooms but you will have to push the inputs hard to get the most out of them. We have an outdoor gig coming up so I think we may have to add some more gear, but so far we haven't had any issues. If you are playing at lower volumes I suggest that you drive the inputs hard and turn down the master volume on the speakers to the level you need as these speakers sound better that way. Even at high volume I have not seen the clip indicator come on yet. The built in mixer on the unit is actually quite good. I did a solo gig with one of these and ran my mic and acoustic/electric guitar through it and it sounded great. Does have some issues, but overall I don't think I'll be replacing them anytime soon. 4 Stars. One major issue is the Line IN only supports either XLR or RCA connection not the 1/4" unbalanced in that is basically standard with everyone else. Since my board uses 1/4" I had to rewire one end of my cables with RCA connectors when a simple 1/4" in should have been standard. The other issue is the built in EQ is not consistant and somewhat touchy. You will have to rely on your ears not the position of the sliders to get them balanced. Once you find the sweet spot tape the sliders in place.

    Don't waste your hard earned money on other high end powered speakers when these will do just fine. I would use these even if they weren't less expensive. Save yourself some cash!!

      Big sound for low wattage speakers. I used the pair I have all of last year on an every weekend basis. They were beat and banged around from place to place and they performed way better then expected. I really didn't think they would last, but their still going strong. Of coarse I use a DRIVERACK PX with them and maybe that has something to do with it. We played some good sized venues and a couple of outdoor festivals and everything went well.

          I was uncertain about these speakers; however, after receiving them they are very good. Perfect for acoustical and mic performances. I only added a reverb and chorus pedal to my acoustic, and voila: sounds awesome. I love the extra inputs; they give you some great options for usage. If you're on the fence, like I was, I recommend taking the plunge. I'm glad I did. I would buy more--likely will--when needed.

            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.
