Harbinger Drops M100-BT and M200-BT Portable PAs

first_imgHarbinger Pro Audio’s new M100-BT and M200-BT portable PA systems are complete transportable sound systems. Both PA systems feature powered mixers with a variety of inputs, including stereo Bluetooth input, channel EQ and 800 watt (peak) stereo power amplifiers that deliver a big, clear, full-range, best-in-class sound and plenty of power for large spaces. Custom carry bags are also included for easy transport and storage.The M100-BT PA system includes a pair of two-way speaker cabinets, each with an eight-inch woofer and a compression high-frequency driver. Each speaker can deliver up to 118 dB SPL, with a total of 124 dB SPL for the pair.The M200-BT employs a ten-inch woofer and a compression high-frequency driver and can put out up to 120 dB SPL per speaker and 126 dB SPL for the pair.In both PA systems, the speakers can be configured as a stereo main pair or as a mono main speaker plus a mono stage monitor. Selectable speaker modes tune the speakers appropriately for either application. The speakers can be free standing or pole mounted on standard speaker stands (stands not included).The M100-BT’s four-channel stereo mixer offers plenty of flexibility, including two mono channels with switchable combo mic/guitar/line inputs and a stereo channel with a pair of ¼-inch, TRS balanced/unbalanced line inputs; a 1/8-inch stereo aux input; and stereo Bluetooth input for wirelessly connecting phones, tablets and laptops. All of the inputs are available simultaneously.Each mono channel is equipped with a channel level knob, a level knob for the built-in Echo effect, and low- and high-frequency EQ knobs (±12 dB shelving, with 80 Hz and 10 kHz cutoff frequencies). The stereo channel has a stereo level knob. In addition to the left and right ¼-inch speaker outputs, the M100-BT mixer offers a 1/8-inch stereo output-great for connecting to a recording device. A master level knob and monitor level knob complete the controls.The M200-BT mixer is identical to that of the M100-BT, with two significant exceptions. Where the M100-BT has a four-channel mixer, the M200-BT has a six channel mixer that adds two more mono channels with mic/line inputs. The M200-BT channels are otherwise identical to those on the M100-BT, including the level knobs and the mono channels’ 2-band EQ and Echo controls. The other difference is that the M200-BT adds a five-band graphic EQ on the main bus for tuning your PA system to the room.Rugged moulded PPE plastic speaker cabinets and mixer housing and steel speaker grilles and mixer panel ensure the M100-BT and M200-BT PA systems will stand up to the rigors of travel and live performance. The M100-BT weighs in at just 33 pounds and the M200-BT at 43 pounds, and with the included speaker bags with convenient hand straps and mixer bag with adjustable shoulder straps, transportation is a breeze. Both systems come with speaker cables and with power cables for their internal 115 VAC power supplies.Harbinger’s M100-BT and M200-BT are available now and here are detailed specs.last_img read more

H1N1 FLU BREAKING NEWS: Campus activity steady, vaccine news

first_imgMar 10, 2010College flu activity stays steadyThe nation’s colleges saw a very slight decrease in flu-like illnesses last week, but the attack rate stayed about the same as the previous 2 weeks, about 3 to 4 cases per 10,000 students, the American College Health Association (ACHA) reported today. So far the patterns don’t signal a third pandemic flu wave, even on a regional level. Two more hospitalizations were reported, and the vaccination level stayed the same, at about 8%.http://www.acha.org/ILI_Project/ILI_Surveillance.cfm/?date=031010Mar 10 ACHA surveillance reportIndia set to launch vaccine campaignIndia’s health ministry said the country will begin vaccinating its priority groups against the pandemic H1N1 virus next week, Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) reported today. Doctors and paramedics will be among the first to receive the vaccine. India has purchased 1.5 million doses from Sanofi and had asked the company to conduct a pandemic vaccine trial in India, which it has completed and sent to the ministry. Indian companies are also working on pandemic H1N1 vaccines.http://www.deccanherald.com/content/57311/india-likely-start-swine-flu.htmlMar 10 IANS storyStudy: 1976 vaccine may protect against novel H1N1A mouse study found that earlier infection with a 1976 classical swine H1N1 virus completely protected against the current pandemic virus, suggesting modern day benefits for those who received the 1976 swine flu vaccine, according to a study in Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses. Mice infected with either 2009 or 1940 seasonal H1N1 viruses showed partial protection, which might partly explain why older people seem to have some protection against the pandemic virus.http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/123315764/abstractMar 8study abstractlast_img read more
