Passion & Innovation
For more than 30 years, we have been on
a quest for perfection. We want to put into
your hands a PA tailored to fit you and
your demands, a sound system that is
easy to handle and treats your audiences
to a memorable audio experience.
But your demands continue to evolve,
and so do our aspirations. Fascinating
new technologies, measurement methods
and materials beg to be explored,
understood and put to use. This journey
into the unknown pushes the boundaries
of our collective imagination, ignites our
engineers’ passion and inspires us to
aim for the seemingly impossible. And
the payoff is enduring, with products that
continue to delight you and amaze your
audiences.
This passion for engineering and HK
AUDIO’s trademark natural sound quality
is built into all our products. Witness
the latest example, LUCAS NANO 300,
perhaps the most eminent addition to the
product family. It incorporates everything
that made LUCAS a universal synonym
for smart sound reinforcement – and then
some.

Passion for Engineering
We’re particularly proud of LUCAS NANO
300. The idea was to get smaller, leaner
and lighter without sacrificing spatial
depth and volume. We looked to the
automotive industry for inspiration, where
engineers are squeezing more from less –
higher performance and greater efficiency
from smaller engines with less HP. The
trick is to combine technologies, some
of which have been around for decades,
in smart, new ways to achieve the
performance of a far larger powerhouse.
Our developers followed a similar roadmap
to arrive at NANO 300. Everything
we learned about acoustics over the
decades, combined with state-of-the-art
measuring and design methods, flowed
into its development. The result is an ultra
compact system that weighs a paltry
10 kilograms, yet delivers shockingly
persuasive audio performance. Seeing
and hearing LUCAS NANO 300 in action
is a surreal experience. You won’t believe
your ears and eyes because they’re telling
you different stories!
You will also be amazed to discover
how easy NANO 300 is to transport
with one hand. Even the subwoofers’
housing is a bit of an engineering marvel:
It accommodates a mixing console and
power circuitry, provides a transport bay
for tucking away the satellites, and even
offers a choice of two generously sized,
ultra comfortable grips!
And with that, LUCAS NANO embodies
everything HK AUDIO has been about
from day one – passion and innovation.

LUCAS
The Revolution
Lightweight Ultra Compact Active System
9
In 1998 our engineering department was
tasked to take on a tough mission: Design
and deliver a fullrange sound system that
would be easy to transport and set up,
and tuned to offer up awesome audio in
every situation. Happily for all discriminating presenters, entertainers, DJs and
bands, they tackled that task with bravura, turning up a revolutionary design that
would make performers’ working lives so
much more rewarding.
Over the course of a decade, we built an
entire family around that inceptive LUCAS.
The line gradually evolved to five end-toend solutions ranging from LUCAS Smart
to LUCAS Alpha, tailored to fit varying
venues and the most diverse demands.
This year’s release makes it six. The sensationally compact LUCAS Nano 300 has
arrived, bringing professional sound reinforcement to even the smallest of rooms.
LUCAS NANO 300
LUCAS NANO 300 takes our LUCAS
principle another step up the evolutionary
ladder with unbelievable size,
unbelievable power, and unbelievable
options. Its subcompact dimensions
and miniscule footprint will treat you
to an unprecedented experience in
convenience. Simply click-fit the two fistsized satellites into the subwoofer, and
there you have a handy, 10-kg package
with comfortable grips that you can carry
single-handedly.
LUCAS NANO Twin Satellite
The Easy-Click connector links two
satellites to create a single powerful
mono unit. A built-in filter circuit is
activated automatically. It voices
the two satellites to respond as one,
thereby eliciting the acoustics
and performance of a single larger
enclosure.
And then there’s the amazing range
of applications that it lends itself to:
champagne receptions, small pub gigs,
recording sessions, garden parties,
multimedia presentations, gaming thrills,
and so much more. You will not believe
your ears when you experience LUCAS
NANO 300 in action.
But whatever model you choose, know
this: The proven LUCAS principle always
applies. You will enjoy peerless portability,
simple setup, stellar sound, and remarkable reliability at every turn. More than
40,000 units sold tell the story - our customers love LUCAS.

ELEMENTS
IT‘S ELEMENTARY!
The first scalable line array for musicians, bands and DJs
17
ELEMENTS
Audio is changing. It’s getting leaner, lighter, and
lusher. Since its inception, HK AUDIO has blazed the
trail to smarter, sleeker sound systems with many key
innovations. ELEMENTS marks yet another milestone
on that path. It is the first system to pair the benefits
of modern line-array technology with the convenience
of ultra compact portable PAs. With a few twists of the
wrist and a minute or two of your time, you can configure
anything from a petit PA for speech reinforcement to a
band-approved stage rig. And that frees you to focus fully
on what’s elementary - your performance!
E-Connect
E-Connect, a new type of integrated coupler/bus, lets you
configure your ELEMENTS rig of choice far easier and
quicker than conventional systems. Just a few minutes
are all it takes to set up an ELEMENTS system. And that’s
a promise. Simply link components via E-Connect, plug
in your signal source, and let the show begin.
Minimum Space
ELEMENTS leaves a tiny footprint on stage. What’s more,
even the most powerful 4,000-watt version easily fits into
a compact car with enough space left over for another
musician and his or her guitar.
Elegance
ELEMENTS looks as modern as it feels. The elegant
visuals not only impress the promoter, it also provides the
perfect setting for your performance.
Scalability
Line sources are very flexible when it comes varying
the number of speakers in an array to meet different
performance needs. Covering larger venues is as simple
as adding more speakers to the line. Rest assured that the
audio experience will always be compelling.
Minimum Effort
ELEMENTS sets up so easily you can even do it in your
stage outfit. The ultra compact yet extremely robust
components weigh just a few kilograms. Never again will
you break a sweat setting up and tearing down your rig!

E 435
EA 600
Mid/High Unit
Amp Module
Made of extruded aluminum and featuring
true line array technology, the mid/ high
unit delivers homogeneous, naturalsounding response, rendering voices and
instruments with astonishing authenticity.
A novel coupler/ bus combination called
E-Connect provides fast, convenient
means of linking it to other elements.
Sharing the mid/ high unit’s elegant
design, the amp module is a perfect
visual and mechanical match. Its 600watt, Class-D power amp provides plenty
of juice to drive four mid/ high units or
a passive subwoofer and two mid/ high
units.

Speaker Poles
Base
These speaker poles are unlike any other.
They enable simple, speedy setup for
smaller configurations. Freely adjustable,
they forward the signal to the top-mounted
mid/ high units via the internal E-Connect
coupler/ bus – no speaker cords
necessary.
The base accommodates the mid/ high
units, amp module, and mounting pole.
Its extendible feet ensure the mounted
elements sit on a stable, secure platform.
• Stable system base with a small footprint
• Integrated E-Connect bus
• Two parallel NL4 ports

E 110 SUB A
E 110 SUB
Active Subwoofer
Passive Subwoofer
The surprisingly handy 10" subwoofer
delivers a tight, low-ranging bass
foundation. Its 600-watt, Class-D power
amp can also drive two mid/ high units
or another passive subwoofer. Equipped
with two E-Connect ports, the sub unit
can be placed horizontally or vertically to
serve as a base for further components.
The ergonomic carrying handle on the
top panel makes it easy to tote.
This passive subwoofer is the perfect
add-on for applications demanding even
more powerful low-end response. It is
powered by a connected E 110 Sub A or
EA 600 amp module. It also sports an
E-Connect port for mid/ high units with
the amp module.

E 835
E 210 SUB AS
Mid/High Unit
System Subwoofer
Our engineers developed the E 835
mid/ high unit to afford you even greater
flexibility when you want to set up bigger
systems. Loaded with eight speakers,
it can handle 300 watts at 8 ohms
impedance. The E 835 comes highly
recommended when you want to minimize
the number of mechanical connections.
The E 835 and E 435 mid/ high units’
design and tuning are identical, so feel
free to combine them.
The new E 210 SUB AS system subwoofer
comes with two 1,200-watt amps in its
engine room. Power amp number one
drives the two internal 10" woofers, with
plenty of juice left over to run an external
passive type L Sub 1200. The second
power amp delivers 900 watts at 2.6 ohms
to drive up to three E 835s (or six E 435s).
ELEMENTS INSTALL
E 435 Install Kit
Mid/High Unit
This will not surprise HK Audio loyalists
but for the record, we developed the new
Elements Install Kit to facilitate simple
and inconspicuous installation. It consists
of two modified E 435 mid/ high units,
including mounting yokes. Up to six mid/
high units (including the Wall-mount Kit)
may be combined.
You can adjust an ELEMENTS system on
mounting yokes 180° horizontally and fix
it in place quickly and easily using the two
included hex-head screws.
E 435 A INSTALL KIT
Mid/High Unit with Amp Module
The active Install Kit is basically the E 435
IL plus a powered EA 600 with mounting
hardware in place of the top mid/ high
unit. This turns it into an active array
that can power either three E 435s or a
combination of one E 435 and one E 835.

Setup Options
Background music, acoustic combos,
full-fledged bands, powerhouse DJs ELEMENTS gets the job done in almost
every situation, and with minimum effort at
that. You benefit from a throw pattern that
projects sound uniformly throughout the
audience area: Not too loud up front; not
too soft in back. It simply sounds great.
And thanks to ELEMENTS, so will you.
The setups shown here are just a few of
the many variants on the Elements theme.

cabinet, making it easy to mix and match units freely
within the series.
The active models pair phenomenal ease of use with a
practical feature set that has proven its merits in the real
world. All fullrange models come with a Gain knob, Mic/
Line switch, and a Tone Control (Speech – Music) that
adapts the cabinet’s sound to suit the scenario. Beyond
that, the active stereo x-over built into the PR:O 18 SUB A/
PR:O 210 SUB A makes it easy to set up full-fledged
systems. Exceptionally light and energy-efficient, its
digital Class D power amp features an RMS peak limiter
and a subsonic filter to provide maximum dynamic
headroom and protect the components well against
overloads. The V-Lock mains socket prevents accidental
disconnection of an optional V-Lock mains cord and
enables glitch-free operation on stage.

SOUNDCADDY ONE
The World’s Fastest PA!
The Ultra Portable Sound System with a Retracting Line-Array,
Built-in Mixer and Casters
37
SOUNDCADDY ONE
Sets Up in Seconds
Simply push on its mid/ high unit and the array rises
fully automatically, propelled by an ingenious pneumatic
lift. Another twist of the wrist is all it takes to adjust its
height to up to 2.10m. And the mid/ high unit is stowed
in the housing and securely locked down for transport
just as quickly. What’s more, the signal bus is built into
the mounting pole, so no further cords are necessary to
connect the unit.
Superlative Sound
The six 3.5" speakers in the mid/ high-range unit are the
product of over two years of joint research with a top
manufacturer who makes them exclusively for us. Their
vertical alignment is based on the line-array principal to
optimize frequency response, spread sound uniformly
throughout the audience area, and tap the power amp’s
full potential.
Profound Bass
Our engineers practically reinvented the subwoofer
for SOUNDCADDY ONE. It sports three 6" woofers
developed specifically for the world’s fastest PA. The
result is a bass foundation so rich and profound that it
will leave your audience wondering how an enclosure as
compact as this could produce it.
Power Aplenty
SOUNDCADDY ONE is home to a 600W, Class D power
amp. And with that kind of power in the engine room,
it can easily entertain up to 200 guests.
Ports Galore
The integrated mixing console accepts up to four signal
sources simultaneously. Microphone, guitar or MP3
player, SOUNDCADDY ONE is ready for just about
anything. And its tone control may be simple, but it’s
surprisingly effective. Dialing in the right sound for the
surroundings couldn’t be any easier, even for the less
technically inclined.
Made in Germany
SOUNDCADDY ONE not only looks elegant and
inconspicuous, it is also well-equipped to withstand
the rigors of daily use on the go. The well-crafted birch
ply housing is robust and weather-resistant, the wheels
are tough enough to handle even rough terrain, and the
pneumatic lift can withstand years of hard use in
a kindergarten.
Accessories
Made of water-repellant, extremely tear-resistant
nylon and tailored to fit, a thickly padded cover
comes factory-included to protect SOUNDCADDY
ONE during transport.

LINEAR 5
Superior Performance & Loudness
High-Performance Speakers with Remarkable SPL
41
LINEAR 5
With Linear 5, HK Audio has unveiled a line of highperformance PA cabinets that is sure to delight ambitious
musicians and DJs as well as discerning hire companies.
No other system competing in the class of 1" drivers
can match its SPL. The high-quality wood housings
are anything but standard. Made of tough multilayer
birch plywood and a birch/MDF hybrid, these rugged
enclosures not only stand up to the rigors of the road,
they also have excellent performance-enhancing
acoustical properties.
Top-drawer features like this usually come at a steep
price, but the Linear 5 line is surprisingly affordable — and
is exceptionally versatile: It takes just two L5 212 FA units
to set up a full-fledged fullrange system. Two stackable
Linear 5 subwoofers may be added for applications
requiring more bass. The mid/ high units can also serve as
delay line speakers in decentralized sound reinforcement
solutions. The multifunctional XA model is suitable for use
as a mid/ high unit and as a stage monitor.
Engineered by a crack R&D team that has been designing
pro audio equipment for more than 25 years, Linear 5
is made in Germany. Users expect nothing less than
flawless finishing, faithful reproduction, and excellent
specs from HK Audio. Linear 5 delivers all this and more:
Our customers also enjoy exemplary service provided by
dealers in 55 countries around the world.
L5 112 X / XA
L5 112 F / FA
The 12"/1" model is housed in a
multifunctional enclosure that delivers
highest sound pressure levels (135
dB MAX SPL peak). A switchable filter
configures it for use as a top unit (adding
long-range capability) in systems with the
Linear Sub 2000 / 2000 A. The L5 112 XA
also serves as an excellent monitor with a
plenty of gain before feedback, whereby
the rotatable 60° x 40° CD horn provides
an exemplary coverage pattern.
The 12"/1" fullrange top delivers the
most powerful bass performance in its
class. It also sports an asymmetrical horn
(60° x 90° x 55°) tuned to optimize sound
dispersion. The switchable EQ (High Power/
Small Venue) configures the cab’s dynamic
response to suit the application and
location. High Power is always your first
choice when you need maximum sound
pressure and range. Small Venue is a great
option for standard applications in smaller
to midsized rooms and for moderate
levels because it serves up a remarkably
transparent and warm audio signal.
L5 115 F / FA
Able to pump out up 1,000 watts as a standalone cabinet, the ultra efficient 15"/1" fullrange
top is, like its smaller sibling, the loudest
reference speaker in its class. And like the L5
FA 112, it is equipped with an asymmetrical
horn. Its throw pattern is optimized to provide
the best coverage. The pattern is wider up
front and grows more directed with distance,
thereby achieving greater range.

L SUB 2000 / 2000 A
L SUB 1200 / 1200 A
Equipped with a sixth-order double
bandpass crossover, the L Sub 2000/ 2000
A is the perfect reinforcement for L5 tops.
Its low-end performance in the 39 -120 Hz
range is most impressive. It sports two 12"
high-excursion woofers. This speaker’s
2.5" voice coil comes with a state-ofthe-art cooling system and a dual spider
suspension to keep it perfectly centered.
A newly developed 1,200-watt, Class-D
power amp drives these speakers.
This compact and light woofer comes
in a bass reflex enclosure. It is ideal
for band PAs. The powered version
sports a remarkably efficient 1,200 watt,
Class-D power amp that can also drive a
connected passive L Sub 1200. Loaded
with two remarkably responsive 10"
woofers, it delivers tight, snappy bass with
a lot punch ranging all the way down to
around 38 Hz.

Engineered for Utmost Efficiency and Coverage
A Powered, Processor-controlled PA Designed for Stacking
49
ICON LTS
An ultra efficient rig, ICON LTS shoehorns more than
10,000 watts of Class-D power into a compact plugand-play package. The system is made up of ‘smart’
IC 112 LA mid-/high units with built-in DSPs paired with
IC 118 BA subwoofers. Our engineers designed ICON
LTS for use in venues that demand considerable SPL
such as tents, clubs and open-air stages. It is a top-notch
alternative for events where time or budget constraints
prevent you from flying a line array. The onboard ICON
system controller may be managed remotely using the
Podware PC application and a BVNet module. This lets
you track key performance parameters such as input and
output levels, the amp modules’ temperatures, drivers’
impedances, and limiter activation. You can even finetune the system to suit the venue’s acoustics without
outboard system controllers and graphic EQs. The
controller also logs the temperature and limiter values
during the last 72 hours in operation. This info is very
useful for diagnosing errors, which comes in particularly
handy for dry-hire equipment.
IC 112 LA
IC 118 BA
This horn-loaded 12"/1.4" mid/ high unit features a
24-bit/96-kHz DSP that manages the entire system. With
a focused 60° x 40° coverage pattern ranging down to
400 Hz, it renders signals with richly detailed accuracy,
sizeable reach, and high SPL. The built-in Class-D power
amp delivers 1,000 [email protected] 4 Ω to the 12" speaker and 600
[email protected] Ω to the 1.4" HF driver. Equipped with Aeroquip
tracks, the enclosure can even be flown if need be.
The IC 112 LA comes with a dolly that protects electronic
components and the rear-mounted connectors during
transport.
This ultra-efficient band-pass enclosure features an 18"
subwoofer. Its frequency response (-10 dB) ranges from
33 Hz up to the x-over frequency, with 136 dB maximum
SPL. The IC 118 BA is powered by a 2,000-watt, Class-D
amp managed by a digital controller located in its mid/
high counterpart. The amp also sends status reports
back to the controller via a networked link.

CONTOUR ARRAY
Maximum Efficiency
A Profitable Line Array with Professional DNA
59
CONTOUR ARRAY
HK Audio has bridged the gap between conventional nearfield systems and big line arrays: With CONTOUR ARRAY,
you finally have a rig that lets you deploy this technology
profitably for sound reinforcement scenarios where in the
past it simply did not pay to set up line arrays.
CONTOUR ARRAY readily scales from a small club
system to a two-meter array for larger events. Flown,
stacked or deployed as a satellite system, it does
exactly what you want it to do. Like the COHEDRA
and COHEDRA COMPACT rigs, CONTOUR ARRAY is
equipped with our Acoustic Lens technology to produce
very precise directivity and maximum efficiency in
the mid- and high-frequency ranges. The fine-tuned
combination of active circuitry and perfectly matched
speakers ensures uniform and transparent sound even at
highest volumes.
CTA 208
The CTA 208 mid/ high unit excels at
generating a stable line array wave-front
that travels great distances. Largely
impervious to the adverse effects of
wind, it is loaded with two 8" neodymium
speakers and four 1" drivers.
The combination of its HK AUDIO
Acoustic Lens and the DDO-Pro
technology in the CTA 118 subwoofer
of the same line delivers the ultimate in
natural-sounding response.
CTA 118 SUB A
The special DualCurve rigging system
offers 0° and 9° tilt angles to facilitate
both long-throw and near-field
applications: Set to 0°, the individual mid/
high units are not articulated; instead they
form a stable and remarkably coherent
wave. This maximizes frequency bundling
effects, thereby maximizing range.
This direct-loaded 18" subwoofer comes
with a DDO-Pro digital controller and two
1,000-watt PWM power amps on board.
One drives the subwoofer’s 18" speaker;
the other is configured by the controller
to drive a mid/ high unit; that is, a
CONTOUR SERIES CT 108, CT 112 or CT
115 enclosure. The CTA 118 SUB delivers
low-ranging, uniform and punchy bass
response, rendering peaks with power
and authority even at highest loads.

CADIS
Top Performance Regardless of Wind and Weather
Versatile Line Array for Installation Indoors and Out
63
CADIS
CADIS was designed first and foremost to satisfy
discriminating expectations for state-of-the-art
installations in stadiums, theaters, clubs, and civic
centers. It is noteworthy not only for its extraordinary
flexibility and sonic performance, but also for the
ruggedness of its components. The mid/ high unit sports
a housing made of polyamide resin, an especially durable,
weatherproof space-age plastic. This resin also happens
to be remarkably anti-resonant; hence the units’ excellent
acoustical properties.
Inconspicuous installation is easy and convenient courtesy
of its unobtrusive yet upscale design and the handy threepoint rigging system. Black and white models are standard,
and versions in any RAL color can be special-ordered.
Simulation software and the requisite specifications
(Ease Focus 2) are included with the CADIS system.
CAD 208
CAD 115 SUB
This mid/ high unit is loaded with two 8"
midrange speakers, two 1" high-frequency
drivers with a concentric double horn,
and a 2.5-way crossover. It handles up
to 500 watts and its horns’ 100° x 15°
throw pattern reaches far and wide. Just
eight mid/ high units deliver full-fledged
fullrange performance with excellent
speech intelligibility down to the last
syllable. The rigging hardware accepts up
to 24 CAD 208 mid/ high units to cover
larger venues. In the stacked variant, up to
eight mid/ high units and two subwoofers
may be connected to the rigging frame.
Given an HK AUDIO FIRNET Controller
and a suitable power amp, the unit readily
integrates into networked systems.
This passive subwoofer sports a highquality 15" neodymium woofer. Its hairtrigger response and impulse accuracy
make it a perfect low-end complement
to the CAD 208 mid/ high unit. It may be
flown at will and deployed to augment
the bass performance of a speech array.
A CADIS system with just two subs and
four mid/ high units will serve you well as
a high-quality fullrange system for smaller
venues.

COHEDRA
A line array with plenty of coverage for
up to 50,000 spectators, the uninitiated
would say COHEDRA is certainly a big
rig. Surprise, surprise: It is far more
compact and lighter than comparable
systems. A single one-ton motor hoist is
all takes to fly a 24-unit array. COHEDRA
may be operated with and without flown
subs (CDR 210 F), although the sonic
image from a line source with CDR 210 F
units will be fuller. Nonetheless, it is this
flexibility, among other budget-friendly
factors, that makes the system such an
economically efficient proposition.
Both COHEDRA and COHEDRA
COMPACT feature the same contingent
of advanced Acoustic Lens, real CD horns
and compression chambers for midrange
speakers. The added reach, awesome
dynamic range, and fantastic fidelity attained
by these features are a boon to audiences
and audio engineers alike. And for even
more versatility, COHEDRA and COHEDRA
COMPACT can be readily combined.
CDR 208 S/T
CDR 210 F
CDR 210 SUB
This 2x 8"/1.4" mid/ high unit with 80°
horizontal directivity delivers faithful
dynamic response and greater range
courtesy of its COHEDRA Acoustic
Lens, CD horn design, and compression
chambers for midrange drivers. Equipped
with fully integrated rigging hardware with
quick-release pins, the two CDR 208 S
and T housing variants come in two forms
to curve the array in different ways while
minimizing side lobes.
This direct-radiating, flyable (2 x 10")
subwoofer has the same basic shape
as the CDR 208 S/T mid/ high units
and can be flown with the same rigging
hardware. The enclosure is sloped on top
and bottom to enable flown bass arrays
to be curved (up to 20 CDR 210 F units).
The subs may be mounted on the rigging
frame above the mid/ high units, flown
as a separate bass array, or serve as the
base for ground-stacked mid/ high units.
This direct-radiating (2 x 10") subwoofer
delivers remarkably faithful impulse
response for crisp, natural-sounding lowend performance. The CDR 210 Sub’s
compact design gives you maximum
flexibility—left-right clusters, quad blocks,
sub arrays—in configuration. A special
coating protects the speakers against dirt
and moisture.

VORTIS
The VORTIS series was engineered specifically to live
up to the towering expectations for today’s upscale
indoor installations. It comprises of six high-performance
enclosures. Notably, these passive fullrange speakers’
coverage pattern may be adjusted individually. Their
hallmark feature is a newly developed set of highfrequency horns with the same dimensions but different
directivities. The horns’ mouths are square so they can
all be rotated, giving sound designers and audio techs
plenty of patterns to choose from when installing these
speakers.
Three choices of horn are available for each cab:
• 60° horizontal x 40° vertical
• 90° horizontal x 55° vertical
• 60° - 90° horizontal, (asymmetrical) x 55° vertical
60° x 40°
90° x 55°
CADIS is optionally available in all RAL colors

VORTIS series cabinets blend nicely with the architecture
of both modern and classic buildings thanks to their
stylish look of subdued elegance. Fronts are covered in
an acoustical grille cloth that, like the housings, comes in
black and white and is available at short notice in many
RAL colors.
The MDF are coated with impact-resistant paint and
equipped with M10 threaded bushings for HK Audio
mounting hardware.

CPQ 10
This cutting-edge, four-channel digital
power amp delivers whopping 2,600 watts
per channel at 4 ohms, and 3,600 watts
at 2. If you run it in bridged mode with
two outputs, each delivers 7,400 watts
(at 4 ohms). But its power is not all that’s
impressive about this Class-D amp. The
great dynamic range, excellent signal-tonoise ratio, and many protective circuits
certainly sweeten the deal. It is the perfect
powerhouse for all CONTOUR, COHEDRA
and COHEDRA COMPACT cabinets.

CONTROLLERS
FIRNET
Custom-designed for HK AUDIO systems,
the FIRNET Linear Phase FIR Controller
sports two inputs and four outputs. As
its FIR filter technology, sophisticated
AD/DA converters, and advanced DSPs
attest, the experts who engineered it
dipped into a deep well of more than
ten years experience working with these
technologies.
FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filtering
technology enables total phase
linearity among components (speaker,
controller and amps). This means sound
systems render the different frequency
components of a sonic image coherently;
that is, in time and faithfully. Differences in
phase response no longer cause listening
fatigue, dramatically improving the sonic
image’s clarity and sharpening its details.
Technical Specifications
The FIRNET controller also serves to
equalize all components, including the
speaker chassis, speaker enclosures,
passive x-overs, and power amps.
The A/D converter’s dynamic range
exceeds 128 dB; the internal sampling
frequency is 96 kHz. Together, this
yields the highest definition and clarity,
which translates to a remarkably
transparent audio signal. And an
ingenious combination of RMS limiters
with overshoot functions and look-ahead
peak limiters affords loudspeakers utmost
protection.

DSM 2060
The DSM 2060 is a freely configurable
digital controller that delivers excellent
audio quality for both touring rigs
and permanently installed systems.
It features two inputs and six outputs
that may be configured individually for
FOH and monitoring applications. Up to
six parametric EQs and two additional
shelving filters are available for every input
and output.
The DSM 2060 boasts powerful fourthorder and eighth-order Hardman filters
that serve to configure x-overs. In contrast
to conventional filters with steep slopes,
Hardman filters preserve the signal’s
natural sound by minimizing phase
shifting and group delay even at maximum
Technical Specifications
slopes. This results in extraordinarily
smooth and precise transitions between
frequencies and faster roll-off rates,
thereby minimizing distortion, enabling
lower x-over frequencies, and affording
drivers greater protection.
The DSM 2060 sports high-end 24-bit,
96-kHz converters that ensure pure,
unadulterated digital signal processing
and frequency response ranging down
to 40 kHz. The controller’s flagship
feature set comprises, alongside
the aforementioned Hardman filters,
Butterworth, Bessel, and Linkwitz-Riley
x-overs with slopes from 6 to 24 dB.
Podware lets you control the DSM 2060
remotely via laptop.

PATCHBAYS & POWER DISTRIBUTOR
PB 5
PB 2
PS 32
Reconfigurable without juggling cables
and connectors, the PB 5 interfaces
all COHEDRA components. It provides
analog and digital inputs, as well as
four speaker outputs wired to individual
Speakon connectors and to NL8 multiouts. Selector switches assign the mid/
high or subwoofer signal to any power
amp channel (speaker pair). This lets you
configure any number of rack setups
swiftly and easily.
Designed for PR 8 Power Racks, this
stereo Speakon Patchbay (19", 1U)
features XLR In and Through, Ground Lift,
Phase Reverse and two bi-amp Speakon
outputs per channel (Mid/High 1+/-, Bass
2+/-), wired in parallel.
This 19", 2U power distributor offers a 32A
CEE In, a Parallel Out, nine 230 V Outs,
and three 16A circuit breakers.
SOFTWARE
EASE FOCUS 2
EASE Focus 2 software serves to generate
three-dimensional simulations of the
dispersion patterns radiated by our linearray products1 in a given room or venue.
Its side and top view panels let you quickly
and easily map out venues with complex
architecture and several different audience
areas. The Rigging menu provides insight
into the array’s total height, weight, and
center of gravity, as well as the splay
between individual mid/high-range units.
The application can also simulate direct
SPL at any given audience area. This lets
you determine the delay times, frequency
response and direct SPL at all positions
in the venue. It supports the EASE GLL
format so system-specific filters can be
factored into the sonic equation during
planning. A virtual EQ lets you optimize the
frequency response during the simulation.
EASE Focus 2 enables you to bring
different line arrays together in one
project. It includes a report generator that
can export all project-related data. EASE
Focus 2 supports the following languages:
German, English, Spanish, Italian, and
Portuguese.
Software Design Ahnert GmbH (www.sdasoftwaredesign.de) has developed special
EASE GLL files for EASE version 4.2 and
higher that take spatial factors such as
reflections and absorptions into account
to compute more complex simulations.

FIRSOFT
FIRSOFT turns your PC/laptop into a
remote control that manages and operates
up to 60 networked FIRNET controllers.
The intuitive user interface shows all
connected controllers. Providing a clear,
uncluttered and individual view of Level,
Output EQ, Delay, Channel Mute, Phase,
Speaker Setup, IP Address, Controller
Name, and Scene, it also lets you edit the
key parameters on-line and off. You can
quickly and easily group controllers in up to
six hierarchic levels to collectively adjust that
group’s parameters.
PODWARE
Podware lets you monitor and edit all
DSM 2060 and ICON LTS controller
functions on a PC or laptop. A clearly
ordered main window shows the selected
controllers with all their functions and
settings. Podware affords direct access
to gain structures, delay times, channel
assignments, and filter settings—online and
without latency. The optional BVNET module
and USB PC Interface lets you network up
to 60 controllers, whereby each gets its own
module. Podware is also a handy tool for
updating controllers’ firmware.
