Sound Reinforcement Systems
for Musicians, DJs and Bands

The Fascination of Speakers
It’s amazing: A magnet, some wire, and a paper
cone are able to render the sonic image of a voice
or an instrument. So simple, yet so spellbinding.
Somewhere in the southwest of Germany,
sometime in the seventh decade of the last
century, a young musician was captivated by this
phenomenon. And at some point his fascination
turned to ambition. Company founder Lothar
Stamer was determined that one day he would
build the world’s best sound reinforcement system.
Today we know that every application is different,
and each has its unique requirements. So you will
find a number of different sound reinforcement
solutions presented in this catalog. Although
each combines audio, transport, and handling
properties in its own way, all systems have one
thing in common – gloriously natural, clear, and
warm sound.

Experiencing Experience
Lothar Stamer’s enduring fascination with speakers
took a scientific turn in 1979. The founder of
HK AUDIO painstakingly researched the functional
and acoustical properties of horns
and documented his findings in his
master‘s thesis. From day one, his
vision put the user first. Seeking to
develop systems tailored to their
needs, he aimed high to make audio
techs, musicians, and DJs shine,
performances sparkle, and audiences
glow with satisfaction. Powerful,
versatile, and easy to handle, these systems would
put users on a sure path to supremely satisfying
audio results.
It wasn’t much later that we joined forces with
some of the world’s most distinguished speaker
companies. Speakers designed and manufactured
to our specifications have featured prominently in
all HK AUDIO systems ever since.
And everything we do is done with our eyes fixed
firmly on the prize:
To sound as true to the source as possible!

Investment in Innovation
While the world has changed in
the last 30 years, our attitude
hasn’t. Never content to leave
even a very good thing be; always
striving to inch a little closer to
perfection with each passing
day: “Typically German,” some
might say with a smile. Perhaps,
but this desire to build a better
mousetrap is what drives us. It’s
why investments in research and development flow
steadily in our company. Users downstream benefit
not only from enhanced audio properties and
performance, but also from innovative handling
designs and smarter products that make their lives
easier.
Today the HK AUDIO R&D team is made up
of many specialists. Engineers specializing in
acoustics, analog and digital electronics, and
mechanics work closely with an elite crew of audio
techs. Utility and human auditory physiology
are the yardsticks by
which they measure the
performance of every
innovation. The R&D
team has a very powerful
tool at its disposal
– one of the world’s
most advanced Class 1
acoustical measuring
chambers. This room
enables our engineers to document, analyze, and
improve our speaker systems’ audio properties
and dynamic response.

SOUNDCADDY ONE
Conferences, weddings, school festivities,
presentations, block parties, busking - many
occasions call for smart yet simple sound
reinforcement. Conventional PAs are often too
inflexible for such applications. Some are too
large and unwieldy; others are too complicated
to handle; most are both. But there is a perfect
solution for all these scenarios: SOUNDCADDY
ONE is the ideal sidekick bearing the same mark
of excellence that stands for stellar sound – the
HK AUDIO brand.
7
SOUNDCADDY
SOUNDCADDY ONE
SOUNDCADDY ONE not only sets up in mere
seconds. As a genuine HK AUDIO PA, it sounds as
good as it is enjoyable to use.
SOUNDCADDY ONE
Fast, faster, SOUNDCADDY ONE! No other PA
sets up and is ready to go in such a short time.
Our engineers packed everything you need in
a portable PA into this remarkably convenient
and elegant caddy. Transporting it from A to B
on its built-in wheels is an exercise in speed and
convenience. And life is just as easy once you
arrive at the venue: Simply extend the mid/highrange unit pneumatically. Then connect the signal
sources to the easy-to-use onboard four-channel
mixing console. Presto, the system is ready to go.
8
The World’s Fastest PA
SOUNDCADDY ONE’s Class-D power amp
pumps out 600 watts – that’s plenty of oomph
for many situations. This mobile miracle in sound
reinforcement gets the job done in schools and
government offices lacking a permanently installed
PA. It’s also a sweet solution for exhibitions,
fashion shows, car dealerships, churches, and
conferences. And SOUNDCADDY ONE is the
perfect companion for one-man/woman bands
and entertainers seeking a system that sets up and
tears down in a flash, but brooks no compromises
when it comes to sound.
SOUNDCADDY ONE
The mid/high-range unit features six custom widerange speakers of the same breed that deliver
such sublime sound in the ELEMENTS system.
Aligned vertically, they enable SOUNDCADDY ONE
to deliver all the superior benefits of a line array,
including a uniform coverage pattern that spreads
sound pressure evenly throughout the audience
area. Your message comes across loud and clear to
everyone in the audience from the front row to the
back. Engineered specifically for SOUNDCADDY
ONE, the subwoofer is loaded with three 6“
woofers that provide the perfect underpinning for
the lower frequency range.
9
600 W
Sets up in seconds flat. Press the top with a flick
of the wrist, and the ingenious mechanism extends
the mid/high-range unit fully automatically. Another
quick twist adjusts the system to a height of up
to 2.10 m. The mid-/ high-range unit retracts and
locks down for transport just as quickly. The signal
bus is built into the speaker pole so there’s no need
for further cords.
Versatile connections. 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 single tone control may be
simple, but it’s surprisingly effective. Dialing in the
sweet spot couldn’t be any easier, even for the less
technically inclined.
Great 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 linearray configuration ensures optimum frequency
response, spreading sound uniformly across the
audience area and tapping the power amp’s full
potential. And SOUNDCADDY ONE shines with its
remarkably articulate and exceedingly intelligible
sonic image.
Made in Germany. SOUNDCADDY ONE is no
toy. Its elegant and inconspicuous look belies its
tough-as-nails design. Well-equipped to withstand
the rigors of daily use, the birch plywood housing
is robust and weather-resistant. The hardware is
road-proof, with tough wheels to handle even rough
terrain and mechanical fittings designed to deliver
years of dependable service as an ultra portable
device.
Profound bass. Our engineers practically reinvented
the subwoofer for SOUNDCADDY ONE. It sports
three 6“ woofers developed specifically for the
world’s fastest PA. Be warned, though: It may come
as a shock that an enclosure with such a small
footprint is able to provide such a rich, profound
bass foundation.
Plenty of power. SOUNDCADDY ONE is home to a
600-watt, Class-D power amp. And with that kind
of power in the engine room, it can easily entertain
200 or more wedding guests.

ELEMENTS
„When I began developing PA
systems 30 years ago, I was an
engineer driven by the desire to
create the stuff of my dreams,
a sound reinforcement system
that perfectly matched my wishes as a musician.
The Holy Grail audio system I wanted would have
to sound great, adapt to changing demands for
size and power, and set up in no time at all. The
HK AUDIO ELEMENTS system marks a milestone
in this quest for perfection. ELEMENTS is the first
system to pair the benefits of modern line array
technology with the convenience of ultra-compact
portable PAs. With just six components, a few
twists of the wrist, and a minute or two of your
time, you can configure your system as anything
from a small PA for speech reinforcement to a
band-approved stage rig. And that frees you to
focus completely on what’s elementary—your
performance!“
Dipl.-Ing. Lothar Stamer

ELEMENTS
a powerful system with a solid bass foundation
for your DJ gig or to rock out with your band. But
whatever you want to do, ELEMENTS gets it done
faster and easier than with any other system. Best
of all, awesome audio results are assured - just like
you have come to expect from HK AUDIO.
ELEMENTS
However large your audience and venue may be,
you can put together a system well-suited for
every situation using ELEMENTS’ six components.
The beauty of it is that you get a perfect match –
mechanically, electrically, and acoustically – every
time. You may opt for just two mid/ high units for
subdued background music. Or perhaps you need

Get it right every time
with six elements.
A true line array - greater range and uniform
coverage all the way to the back row
Unlike conventional systems that lose 6 dB SPL
when the distance doubles, line arrays lose only 3
dB. This is why ELEMENTS is able to spread sound
pressure evenly from the first to the last row. The
longer the array, the greater the range: ELEMENTS
is the only system of its
kind to be fully scalable,
thereby achieving much
greater reach than
conventional speaker
systems.
Precise coverage pattern - for greater speech
intelligibility and less feedback
This system’s ability to project precisely at a 70°
angle means you can aim its sound right at your
audience without unwanted reflections from walls
or windows. The result is
more direct sound, a clearer
sonic image, and less
feedback.
Ultimate versatility - the only solution that adapts
to every situation
ELEMENTS adapts to suit your needs – anytime
and everywhere, with no compromises. Today
ELEMENTS is a powerful PA
for the town hall; tomorrow
it’s an inconspicuous audio
system for an elegant dinner
party; on the weekend it’s a
steel fist in a velvet glove,
pairing a mighty sonic
punch with a stylish look
perfect for a sumptuous
wedding reception. Just six elements are all it
takes to put together the perfect solution for every
scenario.
Remarkably small, light, and portable - incredibly
quick to set up and transport
ELEMENTS sets up so very swiftly: Simply plug
one component into the next and you’re ready to
go. The robust, ultra compact elements weigh just
a few kilograms. The days of breaking a sweat or
wrenching your back are over. And even the largest
ELEMENTS rig fits into a VW Golf.
E-Connect – a built-in signal bus sans
speaker cords
E-Connect, an unprecedented coupler/ bus, lets you
configure ELEMENTS far easier and quicker than
conventional systems. Simply click the elements
together (the signal bus is
connected automatically),
plug in your signal source,
and let the show begin.
21
So ELEMENTS always offers the optimum sound
reinforcement solution, a system whose elegant
visuals and splendid sound never fail to impress.
The rigs shown here are just a few of the many
setups you can configure with ELEMENTS. To
find your the perfect solution for your needs, visit

EA 600 – Poweramp
Sharing the mid/high unit’s elegant design, the
amp module is a perfect visual and mechanical
match. Its 600-watt, Class-D power amp provides
plenty of juice to drive four mid/high units, two
mid/high units and a passive subwoofer or two
subwoofers.
E 110 Sub A – Powered 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 is placed horizontally or vertically to provide a base
for further components. The carrying handle on the top
panel makes it easy to tote.
EP 1/EP 2
EF 45 – Base
The base accommodates the mid/high units, amp
module, and mounting pole. Its retractable and
extendible feet ensure the mounted elements sit on
a stable, secure platform.
These speaker poles unlike any
others: They ensure simple,
speedy setup for smaller
configurations. Infinitely
adjustable, they forward the
signal to the mid/high units via
their internal E-Connect coupler/
bus – no speaker cords necessary.
23
E 110 Sub – Passive Subwoofer
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 and
the amp module.
E 435 – Mid/High Unit
ELEMENTS
Made of extruded aluminum and engineered with
line array technology, the mid/ high unit delivers
homogeneous, natural-sounding response, rendering voices and instruments with astonishing
authenticity. A new type of coupler/ bus called
E-Connect links it to the other elements, simply
and quickly.

PREMIUM PR:O
Ultra articulate, amazingly accurate response
To achieve this ambitious goal, these seasoned
sonic “solutioneers” first painstakingly selected
and matched components, focusing on maximizing
dynamic response and minimizing the 1“ driverand-horn unit’s harmonic distortion. Then applying
all their considerable insight into crossovers they
tweaked the transitional woofer-to-horn frequency
range, to create a remarkably consistent and
harmonic audio image.
On top of all that, they engineered the loudspeaker
housings to add even more beef to the speakers’
brawny bass response. Far superior to other
cabinet material in stiffness and internal damping,
MDF renders bass impulses without energy loss,
pumping out a dry, tightly focused signal.
PREMIUM PR:O
Our engineers designed the PREMIUM PR:O line to
pack a powerful sonic punch, respond accurately,
and project a clear, finely contoured audio image
even at impulse peaks. So you can rely on your EQ
settings to deliver consistent performance even
when volume levels vary markedly.

PREMIUM PR:O Active:
Even greater convenience,
flexibility, and sound
Tired of toting heavy power amp racks and fussing
with outboard controllers and crossovers? Do you
want to travel light, carry less cargo, and set up your
rig with a few effortless twists of the wrists? Then
check out the active versions of the PREMIUM PR:O
line.
• PR:O 10 X
PREMIUM PR:O
This line’s engine room is an ultra light power amp
block featuring ultra efficient Class-D technology
that delivers 600 watts yet remains phenomenally
cool. Unbelievable but true, this cabinet weighs just
a couple of pounds more than its passive cousins!
Having all the power circuitry on board means more
than mere convenience. Our engineers were able
to select and match every component in the signal
chain, and then fine-tune the circuitry to suit the
speakers for best response and reliability. Every
enclosure apart from the PR:O 12 MA and the two
subwoofers features a fully adjustable Tone Control
that adapts it to the given sound reinforcement
demands. The PR:O 18 Sub A / PR:O 210 Sub A ships
with a variable crossover.
Another passive speaker may be connected to each
PREMIUM PR:O active model (except PR:O 18 Sub A/
PR:O 210 Sub A). This is an extraordinary feature
rarely found on other cabinets in this class.
With appointments such as this and its ability
to flexibly serve the user’s changing needs, the
PREMIUM PR:O modular system stands apart from
all other ranges of speaker cabinets.
• PR:O 8 A
• PR:O 210 S • PR:O 210 Sub A
This 8"/1" fullrange enclosure delivers awesome bass
response and exceptionally high SPL for its size. Its
manageable format and included mounting hardware
also make it an excellent choice for fixed installations.
The active PR:O 8 A model comes with onboard
circuitry that delivers 600 watts and a Speakon port
that accepts an added passive cab.
Remarkably portable, handy, and versatile, this
subwoofer weighs no more than 26 kg. The two highgrade 10" speakers deliver a powerful low-end punch
and allow an outstanding small footprint. Both,
the passive as well as the powered version feature
a system crossover that makes the PR:O 210 S the
perfect low-end reinforcement for all PREMIUM PR:O
satellites.
Sporting an 18" woofer in a bass reflex housing, this
bin builds a rock-solid bass foundation for every
sound system. The specially designed crossover
feeds the correct frequencies to the mid-/high-range
unit connected via the Satellite Out. The active
PR:O 18 Sub A model comes with 600 watts power
circuitry and an active stereo crossover facilitating
combinations with powered satellites.
• PR:O 12 • PR:O 12 A
• PR:O 10 X • PR:O 10 XA
This remarkably versatile 10"/1" enclosure can serve
as a satellite, a fullrange cabinet, and a low-profile
wedge monitor. The Music/Speech knob adjusts
its finely balanced and therefore feedback-resistant
frequency response to suit the given application. All
this and an onboard power amp make the PR:O 10 XA
a very flexible sound reinforcement tool indeed.
• PR:O 18 S • PR:O 18 Sub A
• PR:O 8 • PR:O 8 A
28
A fullrange enclosure in classic 12"/1" format, this
cab’s balanced sonic image, speech intelligibility, and
high SPL are certainly impressive. It is the perfect
satellite for the PR:O 18 S. The PR:O 12 A also features
600 watts power circuitry and a Speakon port for
connecting a passive auxiliary cabinet.
Examples with mixer and external amping
150-250
200-300
50-100
Sporting a 15" woofer, this cab delivers performance
on par with the PR:O 12, plus enhanced low-midrange
and bass response compared. And that makes it a great
choice for standalone deployment without a subwoofer.
The active PR:O 15 A model also features 600 watts
power circuitry and a Speakon port designed to accept
a passive auxiliary cabinet.
This bi-functional 15"/1" cabinet delivers powerful
low-end response and high SPL. Remarkably feedback resistant and amazingly articulate, it also serves
users well as a monitor. The active PR:O 15 XA model
ships with 600 watts power circuitry and a Speakon
port serving to connect a passive
auxiliary cabinet.
PREMIUM PR:O
This high-quality 12"/1" stage monitor provides
especially assertive voice and instrument reinforcement. The active PR:O 12 MA also sports 600 watts
power circuitry and a Speaker Out for another passive
monitor cabinet, two features that make setting up a
large monitoring system easy and affordable.

Active Systems for Bands and DJs
Every note is on the money, each instrument
sounds sweet. The band is well-rehearsed, tight
like clockwork, and ready to strut its stuff in front
of their faithful fans. After all, the goal of every
band is to pull off a successful gig, play for an
enthusiastic audience, and enjoy the pay-off for all
their efforts.
But the line between glee and gloom is thin.
Among all the potential fun-killers at gigs,
the sound system is by far the most common
culprit. Hauling it demands brute force, and
making sense of what seems like miles of cable
demands patience. Often, despite an epic-length
sound check, the system still fails to deliver
decent sound. As if that weren’t enough, the
band is expected to play soothing background
music during the cocktail hour, and then kick
out the jams for a blowout bash to follow. Many
systems for bands are heavy, hard to set up, and
complicated. Racks, power amps, cords, speaker
stacks—even with all this, it only manages to
sound decent at a medium volume level. Turn it up
and the sound soon grates; back it off and it turns
thin and puny.
