Renkus-Heinz VA or VAX101i-15

Modular Point Source Line Array

VARIAi's fully modular design enables cabinets to be easily configured as flown vertical arrays, powerful horizontal arrays, or ground stacked systems. With a range of vertical and horizontal dispersion angles and Renkus-Heinz's unique Transitional WaveGuides, VARIAi's highly configurable enclosures and ingenious hardware make it easy to custom design an array for every application.

VARIA101i Array Modules are built around a high power 10-inch Low Frequency woofer coupled with either one or two neodymium High Frequency Compression Drivers. These audiophile quality components coupled with Renkus-Heinz unique Tuned Conic Diverter WaveGuide, ensure the optimum sound quality and arrayability.

7.5º VARIAi cabinets employ concealed flying hardware to hang and array like traditional line arrays, 15º and 22.5º cabinets are fixed curvature and must be tight pack arrayed.

VA101i cabinets are self-powered with integral PF2-500R DSP and Cobranet enabled amp modules. VAX101i enclosures require external amplification and DSP processing.

The VA101i-15 is designed using a single 10-inch Low Frequency Woofer and two 1-inch High Frequency Compression Drivers. Available in 60º, 90º, and 120º standard configurations, as well as with 60º/90º and 90/120º Transitional WaveGuide options. The VA101i-15 is arrayable at 15º.

The VAX101i-15 is a passive version of the same system.





Woodside Bible Church’s Newest Campus Opens with VARIAi

Lake Orion, Michigan | March, 2016 - "We chose the VARIAi for its ability to shape the coverage for the room, in both the vertical and horizontal planes. With the VARIA's variable coverage patterns, we were able to configure a system using fewer cabinets than we would have needed with a standard line array" - Bob Sullivan, Advanced Lighting and Sound



Georgia’s Union County High School PAC Gets Renkus Heinz VARIAi

Blairsville, Georgia | October, 2015 - "One reason we liked Renkus-Heinz VARIAi is that we could change the width as we went higher in the stack. With other loudspeakers, we would have had issues with sound hitting the side walls." - Jason Leatherwood, Southern A&E



VARIA Delivers for Bethany Wesleyan Church

Cherryville, PA | September, 2013 - From their 80-acre campus in this close-knit eastern Pennsylvania town, Bethany Wesleyan Church combines an inspirational, contemporary worship style with a broad mix of community programs.


The Church at Liberty Square Gets a Custom Fit with VARIA

Cartersville, GA | October, 2013 - "Being able to select among several boxes with different coverage patterns, and particularly being able to choose transitional boxes in between the fixed ones, makes a tremendous difference in designing a system. It's almost as if every box is custom, but you don't have to wait six weeks or pay top dollar." - Kent Morris, Principal, Cornerstone Media Group.
