Overview

The V2218S also offers electric/acoustic design features not available from other manufacturers, such as an optical-limiter that provides a quicker response to potentially damaging transient peaks and preserves fine audio detail to the input signal. Also featured is a front-mounted, defeatable LED that makes it easier to quickly recognize any clipping issues. Comes with an integrated crossover with selectable crossover frequency control, level input and convenient 0°/180° phase switch to optimize the correct phase relationship of your sub for multiple speaker setups. Includes heavy-duty casters, side handles, and a sturdy 1-3/8” pole mount.

Excellent for the $$

By G3o5d

from Michigan

Pros

  • Very easy to use.

Cons

  • Covering / Finish
  • Covering doesn't hold up to "Road-Rash'
  • Very rough texture. Feels like Sandpaper.

Best Uses

  • Mobile DJs, Small Venue Bands.
  • Small - Medium Outdoor sound, (In quantity)

Comments about Harbinger Vari 18 in. Powered Subwoofer:

I bought a pair of these and have pushed them to a "Light" intermittent Clip for 1-2 hrs straight. They did NOT disappoint. Very good sound. Pushed side-by-side with a pair of JBL PRX518s and a pair of Behringer B1800D PROs. The Harbingers held their own. I would not recommend them for long-term Thumpy "Rap or Hip/Hop" music but they do very well with Thrash/Heavy Metal, Rock, Country and Bluegrass.
Definitely a good purchase. Will go back in December for 2 more . . . One can never have too many toys. :)

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By GIl

Comments about Harbinger Vari 18 in. Powered Subwoofer:

I purchased this sub for simple house parties we have with our friends. I travel from house to house with this. I have this 1 sub with 2 Eurolive 12's Speakers. Let me tell you this thing hits HARD!!!!!!! It sounds like you are at a club. Well worth the price. In the old days when I use to DJ you would have to connect an amp to your subs. Now it's built in and I love it. If you are looking for a sub to your system, for sure go for this one. It's amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comments about Harbinger Vari 18 in. Powered Subwoofer:

    I bought one of this subs around halloween earlier this year. I try it at the store and it sounded pretty good compare to some top brands. The overall sound is really high-quality for the price you are paying. Unlike other harbinger products, the sound quality is much better. If you usually play latin or pop music, I recommend setting your crossover at 90Hz, that way you get a more punchy sound. I usually play this sub with a pair of JBL Eon 315, and they are more than enough for small to medium venues. You also have to keep in mind that even thought this is a great product, if you are looking for higher quality, definitely look more into JBL or QSC. However, if you are like me who usually has a couple gigs a month I totally recommend getting this sub. One is more than enough for venues anywhere from 50 to 75 people, but if you usually play at gives over 100 people, then I definitely encourage getting two.

    What I've Been Waiting For!

    By Tommy B / MIDIMAN

    from Homosassa, Florida

    See all my reviews

    Pros

    • Excellent as Keyboard Sub Woofer
    • Excellent tight bass sound
    • Stereo inputs and outputs so you only need one

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Keyboard sub-woofer
      • PA Sub-Woofer (2 would be best for this)

      Comments about Harbinger Vari 18 in. Powered Subwoofer:

      I have been waiting for a stereo sub-woofer for my keyboard setup. Added this sub-woofer to my 2 Peavey DM 115 bi-amped speakers for a really full sound, especially the low end of the piano! Also fills in the bottom of synth passages. The castors are excellent as they lock the rotation of the wheels in addition to the wheels themselves. I have never seen castors like these before. Sometimes locking the wheels isn't enough as the cabinet will move due to the rotation of the locked castors. With these castors, when the wheels lock, the rotation of the castor itself is locked.

      Comments about Harbinger Vari 18 in. Powered Subwoofer:

      I bought this to run with a QSC KW181 when I need more bass. Let me tell you... I'm impressed. It actually held its own next to my KW181. There is a huge price difference between these two, and it makes me want to sell my QSC and buy a couple more of these. The finish is absolutely terrible. Its almost like sandpaper. Other than that I'm still wanting at least one more!

      Comments about Harbinger Vari 18 in. Powered Subwoofer:

      To preface...I have an older Harbinger sub I bought maybe four years ago, and have been very pleased with it. It's been rock solid and sounds great. The only issue I have had is the output power. It's not that it's weak, it's that I have a monster amp for the mains because I occasionally do an outside event and I had to bump up the input to the sub to get it to keep up. But it sounds great; people were always complementing me on the bass I was kicking out of my system.

      I had been wanting to buy a second sub because when my quartet would sing, I would put the single sub in the center, but that was screwing with the recording on my video camera because it was picking up too much sub with it being in the middle. So I wanted two so I could move them to the sides and use as a base for the mains. SO I bought one of these.

      Got it in, hooked it up, and quickly found out how much more powerful it is than it's older brother. Wow, I had to set the volume at half to keep it from overriding the older sub. But the new one sounded great; not only louder but fuller than the older sub too.

      So, of course, I had to buy another. Ouch!! Luckily, I got them both on sale for $100 off.
      I now have them both hooked up and an very pleased!! Plenty of power to easily keep up with all the power I can throw at my mains without smoking them (again), and the sound is great!

      The only thing I can fuss about, and others have mentioned this, is the finish. It scrapes off easily and I think these will get ugly quick when I start transporting them. But if they do, I'll sand it off and put some of that bedliner stuff on them. So overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase. I don't think there's anything better without spending a lot more.

      Pleasantly surprised !

      Comments about Harbinger Vari 18 in. Powered Subwoofer:

      I purchased the Vari 18 powered subwoofer to compliment my Harbinger V2112 powered tops. After owning the 12 inch tops, I decided to add the subwoofer. I am more than pleased with it's performance and output. Treat it the way it should be, and this subwoofer will serve you well for years. The finish is abrasive and rough, which I can look past . In conclusion, I am pleased to add this subwoofer to my collection.
