HK Audio Polar 10HK Audio has announced Polar 10, an affordable new columnar PA system intended for musicians, entertainers, DJs, presentations, schools and audiovisual applications.

Polar 10 comprises a subwoofer and two columnar elements. As well as their aesthetic design, the contours of the subwoofer’s birch ply housing are acoustically shaped and sized to deliver excellent audio results in combination with a specially developed 10-inch woofer sporting an extra-long voice coil. Driven by a 2kW power amplifier, this combination claims ‘rich, low-ranging bass response that packs an impressive punch even at high volumes’.

The midrange/HF column comes in two sections for easy transport. The top section is loaded with six high-performance 3-inch midrange drivers and a low-distortion, 1-inch constant directivity horn. The system performs up to 20kHz with a maximum SPL of 126dB and a 120° dispersion pattern, and is engineered to impede feedback. Placed behind the speaker or performer, it can also serve as a stage monitor to take the place of wedges in many scenarios.

The newly developed E.A.S. connect system links the three components. Simple, safe and sturdy, this smart set of couplers requires no cables. Setting Polar 10 on a raised stage is not a problem; it can still be aimed at the correct height by simply leaving the column’s bottom section – which is a spacer – out of the stack.

The system’s four-channel mixer offers two mic/line channels, one instrument channel for an acoustic guitar or similar, and one aux channel for music players. Polar 10 can also render audio streams wirelessly via Bluetooth 5.0, which has four times the range of Bluetooth 4.0. The mixer’s settings may be stored in five presets, to be accessed later as the situation requires.

The system also comes complete with a padded gig bag for the columnar elements and a padded cover to protect the subwoofer in transit.

‘For more than 20 years, HK Audio has been top of the class for powered, impressively big sounding plug-and-play PA concepts. Now we’ve transferred this knowhow into the class of slender columnar systems,’ says HK Audio Senior Product Manager, Rüdiger Forse. ‘Polar 10 is outstanding in its product class and is sure to captivate audiences and users alike with its amazingly full sound, comprehensive feature list and easy handling – and all at a remarkably sweet price. We can’t wait for the world to hear it.’
