Powered loudspeakers with a built-in mixer, Bluetooth and Smart Stereo capability.

Harbinger VARI Live V2408 powered speaker delivers a wide frequency spectrum with exceptional detail and signal dispersion that can fill small- to medium-sized spaces. The V2408’s onboard Class D amplifier unleashes 100 watts of RMS power (400W peak power) through an 8" low-frequency driver and a 1" tweeter. However, the V2408 isn’t just a speaker as it includes a built-in mixer, selectable voicing (transform from a main speaker to a monitor or link up to an external subwoofer), Bluetooth playback and even a charge jack to power up mobile devices.  

A single Harbinger VARI Live V2408 is an ideal and highly portable system for singer-songwriters. The onboard mixer can manage up to five simultaneous sources, which means a solo performer can plug in a guitar or keyboard and a vocal mic, as well as deploy Bluetooth or laptop to play ancillary backing tracks. It’s not a problem if you need more inputs for a bigger group, a solo gig that requires several instruments or a multi-faceted DJ rig. Simply incorporate an external mixer by using the V2408’s balanced stereo inputs. 

Like all Harbinger VARI Live powered speakers, the V2408 allows you rock a wireless—no speaker cables needed—right-left stereo pair by linking two V2408s via Bluetooth. The feature is limited to those times when you are using Bluetooth audio as the only sound source, such as streaming a music playlist or running a DJ setup via a Bluetooth device.  

If you’re using a V2408 to amplify multiple instruments and/or vocals, you can easily connect two VARI Live speakers with a single mic cable using Smart Stereo. In this configuration, one speaker handles all of the inputs, EQ and other settings, while Smart Stereo sends the audio to a second speaker for expansive stereo sound. Whether you use Bluetooth stereo linking or Smart Stereo, an available output jack on the V2408 makes it a breeze to add a Harbinger VARI Live subwoofer to the system. 

As flexibility is one of the hallmarks of the VARI Live system, the V2408 isn’t limited to use as a main speaker. Selectable DSP voicings let you determine whether a V2408 sees action as a main or monitor speaker, and the speaker EQ is automatically adjusted to suit a conventional PA mode or a flat-on-the-floor, wedge-like position. In addition, you can seamlessly integrate a subwoofer into the system by choosing Sub Cut, which ensures an optimum crossover frequency between the speaker and sub. All three voicings can be further dialed in with the V2408’s bass and treble controls. DSP is also on hand to manage a transparent limiter for system protection.
