Best floor monitor wedges on the market. Too bad MF doesn't carry them anymore. What a real work horse they are. The powered monitors aren't as good as these cabinets. These are much better quality of sound with an amp over the powered ones.
I was very skeptical. I took the time to A/B these against all the others they had in house at this price point - including the standard club workhorse brands. These were by far the best sounding. All the others had uncomplementary bumps in their frequency response. These sounded the smoothest. The next step up in sound and power handling is going to double your cash outlay. Bought a pair and they're working like champs.Would like to see rubber feet on additional sides to allow you to put it in another orientation. These are not light either.I'll buy two more when I'm ready to expand.
I just bought 4 of these the other day and I was impressed when I A-B'd them against the Yamaha BR12M and and the difference was really surprising. The Harbinger had so much more low end then the Yamaha. Even against the club V series they could compete. make sure that you give them a few hours of play time when you pull them out of the box. The cones need some time to get flexible. good value for what you get.
It's hard to find a good road worthy stage monitorthat will deliver as good a quality sound as your front of house setup. As a rule of thumb your monitors should be an equivalent of your mains in order to know what your audience is hearing. Ie. similar components, Freq. response & curve, power handling, Spl etc. This not to say that you must buy the exact same brand, just know what to look for. My band runs through and E.V. mains system and well it just doesnt get any better than E.V., However we tryed to buy cheaper monitors and as a result got what we payed for. Wasted time , money , and eardrums. Although i would have loved to pick-up a set of e.v. floor mon. Money was and is the issue. After much research I settled on a set of these Harbinger's. I must say I am impressed. They are reliable, built like rocks, the components are top quality, and they sound great, especially with a bbe sonic maximizer in front. Our vocals come through loud and clear and as the lead vocalist and guitarist it is crucial that hear both my instrument and vocals. Both come through without getting muddy or colored. Our ears are no longer ringing after a show because of the poor quality of sound and the resulting higher spls cause you have to crank it to hear it. If you need good mon.'s but lack the cash then I suggest you take a look at what harbinger has to offer.
