I picked these up on a one-day sale, with the idea to use them for PA mains, monitors, or DJ for small parties. While they have great highs & deep lows, the mids are lacking. Also, the 600-watt rating is Peak Power, and somewhat misleading. The actual RMS power is more similar to say 200 watts. They are a bit heavy for my old bones, over 40 lbs. Use caution when transporting, as those knobs on the back for the mixer portion are a tad exposed. While the top and bottom handles protrude out further, there is a lot of space in between.

The RCA jacks to input a music source is fine, but the rest of the mixer section is not so great. I was using them with a mixer using the XLR or 1/4 inch input. I would not push the individual channel volume, or the bass or treble pots past 12 o'clock. Push the main volume farther if you need more power. They get a bit of hiss going at higher volumes.

Overall, these are OK for a small PA for a club with less than 200 people or DJ a venue for not much more than 100 people; great for monitors (especially for drummers & bass players), and great for a back yard or other smaller house party, rehearsal studio, etc.

Great value, but for me, I need more power and have to go with more high-end (and high-priced) powered speakers.

    Comments about Harbinger VaRi V2115 600 W 15" Two-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

    Clear sound, excellent bass response, and budget friendly. These speakers will get over your drummer, keep up with your bassist, and cut through the mix quite well.

    But wait! That's not all! So I'm blasting Pantera through these, and the bass kicks come out clear as a bell, no distortion, the floor and walls are shaking, the guitars are clear, the bass is clear, there's no buzz or distortion, and I can literally feel the music through my entire body. For 500, you can be loud enough for weddings, clubs, parties, live performance, etc., with good, high quality sound.

    Comments about Harbinger VaRi V2115 600 W 15" Two-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

    I bought a pair of these on sale, with hope that they actually put out a majority of the claimed wattage. But they don't. Many years ago, my friends and I were very disappointed when manufacturers began to use "peak power" as the rating standards, rather than rms. For those who don't know, peak power is obtainable only when the unit is cranked up into pretty bad distortion. Sure enough, these speakers start distorting badly at about the equivalent of 100 watts rms. 600 watts only applies to something you never want to hear.
    A second misleading part of the ad copy is the claim that other speakers can be ganged to these units. Not quite. There is no speaker out, for example, to have one unit drive an unpowered monitor. Rather, one of these exact units can be joined to another, which saves a speaker cord, but other than that, has limited value, and certainly does not afford the versatility which could be possible with a more intelligent design.
    I wonder about the positive reviews of these speakers. Either they are fake, or buyers really have no idea how loud 600 watts are. MF would be better off and retain more customers if they would insist on more accurate product descriptions, but until they do, it's buyer beware.

      Comments about Harbinger VaRi V2115 600 W 15" Two-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

      I was in the market for an affordable speaker. I had bought two of the twelve inch version of this speaker. they sound really good. I got them on sale. I called to get another one and the sales person that helped me with this was able to give me a good deal and he gave me an extra cable at no charge. Back to the point. the speaker sounds really clear and is very loud. I haven't had to use it past half way except once which was outside. yes I would recommend it. I heard it for the first time when I got it and was pleased.

            Comments about Harbinger VaRi V2115 600 W 15" Two-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

            I am really happy with the sound, power, and clarity of this powered speaker. It has an easy to use eq and plenty of bass for most applications. Sounded good right out of the box and didn't require "break in." The cabinet is also reasonably lightweight...but not light. We used this with medium volume 5-piece band just last evening and it sounds great and has plenty of power.

            Two things for gigging musicians to keep in mind : 1) the plastic control knobs in the back are more exposed than is ideal; with heavy gigging, these knobs stand a good chance of being broken off unless you are careful how you (and your band mates) haul these. 2) They are larger and heavier than many current production 15 inch powered speaker cabinets, such as the JBL Eon series (which I also own, and is of similar power and clarity). If you are playing small venues such as wineries and small pubs you might want something easier to haul and that takes up less space.

            Overall, I am happy with the purchase and am considering the 12 inch version for smaller venues.

                  If you are a budget minded musician (just starting a band, or playing for years) it's hard to find a better value.
                  Saw them on Lyin Ted's tour used as monitors and main vocals/keyboard amps.

                        I was so taken aback & impressed after testing two of these cabs in my stereo set up that I immediately ordered an additional two speaker cabs from MF - the sale price in my opinion along with free shipping was unbeatable. I read the reviews and was aware of the RMS & mid range & other concerns expressed by some. Surprisingly I found the 42 pound weight very manageable and the cabs fairly easy to manipulate (however just to be safe I did order a pair of On Stage crank speaker stands to replace my current stands - I am in my 60's and had no problem lifting these cabs on to the crank speaker stands). I did contact Harbinger customer service for clarification with respect to the 600 watt power rating - the young man stated they were 600 watts RMS ( I didn't bother pressing the point any further ) - my guess is 200 watts RMS which is more than sufficient for my needs and the bass response (specs state down to 45Hz) was impressively clear & powerful - as far as the midrange is concerned - slightly noticeable but nothing that can't be compensated for. Also I did not hear any noticeable hissing from the horns and I did not see or hear any evidence that would lead me to believe that these speakers would fail as long as they are NOT being pushed above & beyond their operating capabilities. For sure these speakers are not going to be suited for every application but for small to medium size venues utilizing 2 - 4 cabs as needed at least with respect to my particular application I don't see any problems.

                          I love this speaker. I am a beginner mobile DJ and was looking for high quality speakers that weren't too expensive. I found these and saw that the reviews were good so I decided to give them a try. Well, reviews don't do this thing justice. The sound is clear and just one speaker at low volume is loud enough to fill my apartment.

                            I bought Two of these in 2014 and they are still pushing hard. I used them mainly for wedding events. I bought these without trying them out. they were on sale and I didn't think twice! Two years later they are still pushing hard and loud! I bought the 12 Inch version and recently purchased a 15 for a family member. I will recommend these if you are on a budget. They do sound clear and they don't sound cheap. Keep in mind this is my opinion and I never tried them before purchasing. They sound good for what i use them for. I don't link them because the settings are a little confusing. I use left and right from the mixer for an even sound otherwise you would have a hard time adjusting the volumes evenly.

                              These are inexpensive PA cabinets. Quite adequate for the small gigs. I use them personally when playing drums as my monitors. Full sound. Easy to transport. Light weight.

                                The sale price is very good for this speaker. The sound quality is nice and powerful enough for a small band or amateur use. Easy setup and use.

                                    Bought two 12s on stupid deal. I was blown away by them. I scared the hell out of my girlfriend with the bass coming out of those. The 15s went on Stupid Deal about a month later. I bought two of those. I didn't event take them out of the box and stored them. Main reason I bought these is I host a party in my yard once a year. I don't like borrowing the band's equipment because it's a hassle and it puts the gear at risk. So this stuff is ideal. I finally got the opportunity to use the 15s for the front of house for the yard party and honestly? Blown away. Used those 12s as monitors and also had a Yamaha 2x18 sub with 1000 watt amp. The sound was as good as our primary band's PA for the most part. That stuff (two subs and two front of house only...no monitors) cost 3 grand! This PA with sub and amp cost less than half that. The bass is better with the Yamaha stuff I think too. Anyway these Harbingers? Loud and proud. Best value in PA for the money. The onjy thing close on price point is Gemini. Don't waste your money. That stuff is junk. This is not. Only thing I can say is that you have to drive these harder (input wise) than other speakers to get the same SPL. Either way they have similar headroom to the old ZLX eVs we used to use. They keep up fine with speakers twice their price point. Way impressed.

                                      These monitors are reall great for the price. Ive see a lot of people's reviews on hear and it seem like the only people that don't like them aren't using them correctly. For instance someone said it saves you a speaker cord" you should not be using speaker cords you should be using balanced mic cables. Other people mentioned distortion. If your distorting them your not using them correctly. To use the speakers correctly you should keep the master volume all the way up then keep the input volume somewhere starting at noon to keep full headroom and take advantage of the full power of the power amp. You can't beat the price. I hope this helps for someone.
