Big clubs and venues already have fantastic sound systems, so if you're playing live a lot - you don't really need to worry about that. Obviously, this isn't going to outdo your guitar player's Marshall half-stack and if your drummer is Mike Portnoy you might want to look at something with more wattage, but you can't beat this for the money and portability house parties. This Harbinger HA120 is pretty fantastic for small bands and DJs. I bought this package with my bandmates for a few smaller house parties and small, private bar shows and it has outperformed our expectations. We generally play at larger venues where our sound technician is present and the capacity is 1200 to 2000, so we're not strangers to great sound design. The sound of the Harbinger is clean, punchy and loud. I'm the drummer in the band and I hit pretty regularly. This PA really doesn't have much trouble with that. The first day I had it, I took it to a friend's party to DJ. It performed great. If you take your craft seriously and have good quality MP3s (considering you're a digital DJ) this thing isn't going to be bad for house parties and the backyard barbecue scene. It's not the most bassy system in the world, but, to be frank.. in those situations (house parties and back yard parties) you're losing most of your bass to the elements anyway. Once people get a few drinks in them, all they'll wanna do is dance. Unless you're putting together a live venue or you really need a ton of wattage to be louder than some overzealous musicians, this is a fine system. I wish when I was younger that they had had stuff like this. Would've saved a ton.

I bought this as a cheap alternative to getting something incredible because we needed to have something to play with. Now, I definitely should have gotten the warranty because the thing didn't even work correctly out of the box. The second and third channel were broken right off the bat, the craftsmanship on the speaker outputs is flimsy, and there's a horrible EQ consisting of low and high. Nonetheless, this thing DOES get loud, but that's about the best thing about it. I honestly suggest saving up for one of the bigger and better systems than this one.

Great for the Money

By Brad

from Detroit,Michigan

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

This system works great for the money, you're not going to find anything this cheap that is this good.It has a few minor annoyances but for the most part it is a fantastic system for the money, it is plently loud, and has a few effects for the voice.

Super loud!!!

By brianneary

from spencer iowa

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

i am a drummer and bought this so i could play music live and this by far is the best system yet im running 2 mics a guitar and a ipod all at the same time! (i play guitar too) it handles it no problem. but this can over power my drums no problem and you can hear it when in my neighbors house. I have borrowed a 2000 dollar system from my church and this over powers it by far so over all its a verry good choice!

Very Impressed

By Sal Amato

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

I'am a major professional recording artist, an original member of Eddie and the Cruisers and former member of The Dupree's but above all very particular about quailty sound. When I perform live shows I have larger sound companies do my sound but occassionaly do a solo act and was looking for something small,compacy and light weight. The Harbinger HA120 is absoultely phenominal in quality sound and well worth the price.It delivers clean sound and punchy bass and more then loud enough to perform inside or outside samll gatherings. Take my work for it, I'am a perfectionest,maby the Virgo in me but this PA system ROCKS THE HOUSE !!!

A definate buy.

By Caleb

from Beaverton, OR

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

I play drums for an Alternative All Time Lowish band, and forever we'd have problems with the drums overpowering. Ever since we got this it hasn't been a problem. The sound quality is great. they get extremely loud. I couldn't ask for more expecially at this affordable price. I reccomend this to anyone with similar problems and for a low price is amazing.

Budget PA With Great Sound

By Robert Conroy

from San Diego CA

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

I bought this after selling my 300 Watt Yamaha PA, to use for small venues. It has a 4 channel mixer with an auxiliary line input too. Each of the 4 inputs have 1/4 in phone plug input plus an XLR, so low and high impedance inputs for mikes, guitar, bass, etc. The electronic delay effect sounds good. The amp is mono and minimal impedance is 4 ohms so you can hook up one speaker (8 ohms) or with both speakers plugged in 4 ohms. You can't add additional speakers or monitors to the speaker output jacks unless you wire them in series, rather than the usual parallel, to keep the speaker impedance at least 4 ohms. If the speaker impedance gets below 4 ohms, the power transistors could overheat and damage the amp. For a lower power mono PA, this is probably the best deal out there. You could always get bigger 8 ohm speakers to bring out more bass, but the ones that come with it sound ok for a small club or home jam. I've run mike, guitar, bass, keys, electronic drums, didge, and ukulele through it and all sounds great. Add a 100 watt or bigger powered woofer (it does have dual RCA line out), two speaker stands for the main speakers, and you've got a very portable kick butt DJ system.

Do not buy this!!!

By Jeremy Newton

from Xenia, Ohio

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

I read all the reviews on here and thought i would give it a try. I wasnt expecting anything great here, but from all the other reviews i was expexting a decent sounding set up here and thats not at all what i got. I know how to hook up audio equipment so that was not the problem, everything worked but sounded terrible. If you even think of giving it some volume it will be very loud like a factory car stereo system with no bass what so ever even with it turned all the way up and at lower volumes. I have a surround sound from walmart that cost $79.99 in my garage and in sound quality it blows this Baringer system away! Highly disappointed to say the least. Save up more money for better equipment, dont make the same mistake i made. i bought this at the dayton mall guitar center, on the plus side there employees are very helpful and great to deal with.

Great for price but damaged when I opened the box

By William Ross

from Newnan, GA

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

I have heard and read great things about this set up. I am a preacher. I bought this to help the youth group and for movies outside in a small parking lot. The sounds are great for the parking lot. I have had people use these before so i thought they would be great for the church. When I got these from the store the box looked bad, when I got them back to the church and took them out the screens on the front of the speakers were mashed in and one of the speakers was falling out. The screws were not holding the speaker in place. I was disappointed. I am taking them back as soon as I can. I did not give them a 1 star rating because I have heard them and know they sound great but this set was bad from the beginning.

Easy, Powerful, and Affordable

By Brian

from Fresno, California

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

Just bought these for DJ ing at smaller parties and blaring music in my house and I am more than happy. The speakers are fairly light weight are pretty powerful. Its easy to set up the system and comes with everything to get started. I recommend buying stands for the speakers. When the speakers are on the floor the sound doesn't travel up much and they don't seem as loud. If you are just starting, or pretty experienced, this is a great set up.

Good WHEN it works!

By Paul Portch

from Grass Valley CA

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

Purchased in late Oct 2012. Used at low volume at home for 10 days. First real use at 40% power was on 11/12/12. After two hours of performing with my keyboard, the head suddenly cut out. No overpeak warning light on either channel. Unit would work again after a couple of minutes, then cut out again after maybe a couple minutes of playing. Apparently some sort of thermal switch is being tripped, even though the unit is NOT being pushed very hard. I remember reading comments of this or another site from people who had the same problem. In fact the first unit I tested at Guitar Center cut out after only 5 minutes. As it's a 250 mi drive to GC, I am not particularly pleased with the product at this point.

Awesome Starter Set!

By James Sanderson

from California

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

I bought this as my first PA System. There was a lot to choose from, and the winning factor was portability. After hooking it all up, it is LOUD! Added bonus was AUX in. Ive played couple shows with em, and they hold there own against 2 half stack and bass and a mic'd drummer. Found speaker cases pretty easy, but hard time finding a mixer case. All in all, best starter set out there.

Not sure

By Nick

from Kansas City, MO.

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

Hey guys, I'm pending on this item. I've tried and tried again to ask their experts and still no reply. All I need to know is, if I have a 1/4" Mic cable, can I plug it into the mixer? or not, because i noticed on this close up http://static.music123.com/derivates/19/001/388/333/DV020_Jpg_Jumbo_423427_front.jpg that theres a different Input hole for the mic. Please respond my email is sicilian95@ymail.com

So Far So Good

By Cory

from Long Island, NY

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

Bought this system to get us out of a jam when our old Yamaha mixer bit the dust and it's been good to our band so far. Very simple to use and plenty of volume for small venues. Used it outside for a small show and got the job done too. Sounds great when running an iPod through it between sets. Digital delay feature is good but would've preferred reverb, but no PA systems in this price range are going to give you everything you're looking for. Bought the three-year warranty just in case. Would recommend it.

Pretty good for the money

By Jeremy Adkins

from La Crosse

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

i scream and sing in a metalcore band. I got this to use in practice and it does its job, although it does get a lot of feedback when we have 2 mics close together, but none with just my mic. i had a scary issue where all the sound coming out was badly distorted and the speakers buzzed loudly and it turned out that the power cord was faulty and i replaced it and have had no issues since, that is why i give it 4 stars. its a really nice budget setup though... the mixer could be a little less basic though.

You think just because its new its reliable

By Gregory

from Mionroe, New Jersey

Comments about Harbinger HA120 Portable PA System:

Shiny and new out of the box. it worked great. I used it sparingly, never really turning it up loud or abusing it. Ive used it maybe 12 times since I bought it last year in July. The other night in my basement practicing, got my acoustic in line 1 turned up to 4. my mic in line 2 turned up to 4, the master up half way. all of a sudden the amp goes dead, both channels, then 5 seconds later it goes on again, 10 seconds later dead again, then on, then dead, So glad this was not a live performance where I was being paid. Harbinger, Greatly disappointed in this system, Its in the shop being repaired. I would love to think the repair will fix it, this is the only amp system I have bought in 20 years that failed like this. Maybe its only good for kicking around in the basement. Dont know if I will feel comfortable relying on it for a gig in a small venue, which is why I bought it to begin with. Go for the extra bucks an buy a small Mackie or Yamaha, system. Somtimes lessons are learned hard.
