By | News, Press Releases | No Comments

Thousand Oaks, CA – February 2017
HThe newest member of Harbinger’s MüV Series of ultra-portable PAs is the MLS800 Personal Line Array. This compact, custom configuration PA is ideal for gigging musicians, singer/songwriters, presenters, and anyone who needs a simple, portable, turnkey, sound-reinforcement solution with exceptional sound and unprecedented value. This all-in one sound system features a passive, full-range satellite section comprising six matched, 2.75-inch high-frequency drivers that are configured as a line array for precise, professional-quality audio performance.

The active, vented subwoofer section utilizes an 8-inch low-frequency driver with a 1.5-inch voice coil. The system is powered by 800 watts of Class D amplification, configured as 400W for the satellite section and 400W for the subwoofer. A built-in limiter protects the amplifier inputs. A phase plug extends the high-frequency response by guiding waves outward so they don’t interact destructively near the driver.

The MLS800 offers three input channels: Channel 1 presents a combo microphone/line input, Channel 2 sports a combo mic/instrument input, and Channel 3 provides a choice of stereo RCA aux inputs and Bluetooth wireless input-great for use with mobile devices. The onboard three-channel mixer and 2-band shelving EQ enable you to create a clear, clean, balanced mix that will fill any small venue. By connecting the Line Out jack of one MLS800 to a line input on a second unit, you can easily daisy-chain units to provide even more coverage for larger venues.

The Harbinger MLS800 tower stand-mount assembles quickly and easily, providing instant audio connections. Its column is configurable to full or half-height for maximum versatility. Built to take the stresses of travel, it features a sturdy plastic case and 1 mm steel speaker grilles. LEDs indicate power and limiter status. An included carry bag makes travel and storage easy.

Harbinger MüV Series Portable PA systems are a simple solution for anyone who needs a portable, affordable sound system for smaller performances, presentations, and rehearsals. The Harbinger MLS800 will have a street price of $699.99 is available at Guitar Center and Musicians Friend.

Flexible 14-channel mixer delivers wall-shaking power

Thousand Oaks, CA – March 2015
Harbinger, providers of powerful, affordable sound-reinforcement solutions, introduces the new LP9800 14-channel powered mixer, the newest model in the company’s popular LvL series.

A versatile solution for rehearsal spaces, gigs, and jam sessions, the LP9800 provides 800 watts of clean, high-headroom power. Drive stereo mains, split the power to handle both mains and monitors, or deliver all 800 wall-shaking watts in Mono Bridge mode-this flexible system can do it all. Each power-amp channel (mains and monitors) has a level control and a 5-segment LED input meter so you can check levels at a glance.

Line-level preamp outputs are provided for feeding powered stereo main and mono monitor speakers, so the LP9800 works great with virtually any speaker system. A pair of 1/4-inch line-level inputs let you route stereo signals directly to the amplifier.

You get 14 input channels with nine XLR microphone inputs and 1/4″ TRS balanced line inputs-each with a -25 dB pad, rumble filter, and clip indicator-plus three stereo channels with XLR mic and 1/4″ TS inputs, and a total of 14 line inputs. That’s easily enough to mix and manage sound for an entire band. Every input channel has a 3-band EQ, effects send, and aux send. Globally switched, +48 volt phantom power serves all microphone inputs.

Dual, 9-band graphic EQ lets you shape the main or monitor mix. RCA Aux In and Aux Out jacks can route break music from a CD/MP3 player, send the main mix to a recording device, and more.

A sweet 24-bit, stereo, digital effects processor delivers studio-grade reverb, delays, and various other effects, complete with a Quick Parameter control, on/off switch, and 16 performance-ready presets. The effects can be routed to both the mains and the monitors, with separate level controls. You even get a jack for an effects-bypass footswitch (not included).

The ruggedly built LP9800 is ready for the rigors of performance, too, with protective corners and covering.

“We wanted to create a versatile, high-quality, yet very affordable powered mixer that would meet the needs of casual performers and working musicians alike,” explains Harbinger Product Manager Jim Norman, “and the LP9800 delivers on all counts. It’s easy to set up and use, it sounds great, and it’s built to last. Here is an excellent solution for a wide variety of gigs and for rehearsal spaces as well.”

The Harbinger LP9800 is available now at Guitar Center and Musician’s Friend with a street price of $349. For more information, visit www.harbingerproaudio.com.
