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
probably best 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.

what do you get? LUCAS Nano 300, a system that is
more compact, efficient and flexible than any LUCAS to
date. In fact, it’s probably the world’s smallest, lightest

you can use LUCAS Nano 300 as your
personal monitor. And the LUCAS Nano
300 Twin Set is the perfect package for
audiences of up to 100.
LUCAS Nano 300 is just what the doctor
ordered for every presentation. In most
cases, you will need only the basic
system. Simply place the satellites on the
subwoofer and you’re good to go. Or you
can use Add-On Package One to mount
the satellites on a pole or tripod for ontarget system-to-audience alignment.

system with higher sound pressure or
separate the two in a stereo rig. If the
party turns out to be a somewhat larger
affair, simply connect two LUCAS Nano
300 systems using a simple stereo cord.
LUCAS Nano 300 pumps up the volume
of your PC’s multimedia content. It
also makes a wonderful 2.1 monitoring
system. Add-On Package Two’s tabletop
tripods provide the perfect pedestals
for the satellites on your desk, while the
subwoofer can be tucked away in an
inconspicuous spot below the desk.
LUCAS Nano 300 is an excellent
alternative to the loudspeakers built into
your TV set. You can place the satellites
right next to the screen or mount them
wherever you wish on walls using the
combined tabletop tripod/ wall-mount in

Ingeniously Different Sound
Ingeniously Different Setup
Extended Sweet Spot
Featuring the latest-generation line array technology,
ELEMENTS treats audiences and musicians to an
unprecedented experience in natural sound. Listeners
enjoy a remarkably well-defined audio image at every
spot in the room. Pleasantly assertive without being
aggressive, the signal is not too loud up front and not too
soft in back.
The best cable is... no cable at all! With the ingenious
E-Connect coupler/bus, most ELEMENTS systems are
practically wireless devices, bar one mains and one
signal cord.
A Common Sound Field
What’s more, an ELEMENTS system is remarkably
unsusceptible to feedback, so it can be placed alongside
and behind musicians. No longer forced to fuss with
separate stage monitors, you finally get to enjoy an
authentic audio experience. You hear what the audience
hears. And you and your fellow musicians can intuitively
vary volume and tone to blend together in a unified whole.
Only ELEMENTS is as musically inspiring as that.
An ELEMENTS subwoofer also leaves a much smaller
footprint system than a tripod. You are free to site
ELEMENTS wherever it serves your purposes best
– before, beside or behind the band – without
having to give feedback more than
a passing thought.
ELEMENTS also relegates heavy speaker stands to
history. There’s less gear to carry and a lot less weight to
heave up on a tall stand.

Ingeniously Different Portability
Ingeniously Different Expandability
If you’re wondering why ELEMENTS components are
so extraordinarily light for units as powerful as this
and so easy for one person to carry, you need only to
look to its advanced, ultra efficient speaker and power
amp technologies for an answer. It’s this remarkable
compactness that has made ELEMENTS the first bona
fide PA to fit in an ordinary passenger car.
Do you regularly gig in pubs and clubs that hold up to 150
people? Then start out with a mono or stereo ELEMENTS
Easy Base system. Your gigs are getting bigger and you
want to be more flexible? Then opt for the ELEMENTS
Smart Base and augment it with the ELEMENTS Add-On
subwoofers and mid/high units.
Do you frequently play for 300 or more people? Then get
in on the game with an ELEMENTS Big Base rig made up
of the new ELEMENTS Plus components, and gradually
extend it to a large PA with ELEMENTS Add-Ons.
ELEMENTS is the only columnar system that can be
flexibly configured, reconfigured and extended. Why?
Because ELEMENTS – unlike other columnar systems –
is a genuine line array engineered to accommodate and
harmonize with add-on components.
ELEMENTS is small. ELEMENTS is large. ELEMENTS is
mono. ELEMENTS is stereo. ELEMENTS fits your needs
today – and adapts to tomorrow’s.
left to right:
ELEMENTS can be positioned so that stage monitors are rarely if ever needed.
Quick setup: With the built-in signal bus and ingenious E-Connect coupler, there’s no
tangled mess of cables.
One trip to the stage is all it takes to set up an entire ELEMENTS rig.
The band bus is history – with ELEMENTS, a big PA fits in a normal passenger car.
Your band is growing; your gigs are getting bigger? ELEMENTS grows as you go,
leaving all your options open.

You’re sure to love your ELEMENTS PA even before you
hear the first tone. Its compact, lightweight components
can be assembled almost instantly without having to
fuss with cords. And you don’t need an audio engineer
to position your PA. Set it up just behind the band, and
ELEMENTS will serve your audience as an awesome PA
and you equally well as a monitor.
And once you hear ELEMENTS there will be no doubt that
you have moved up to a whole new league of speaker
system. ELEMENTS adapts flexibly as your needs
change. Welcome to the world of HK Audio ELEMENTS.
Getting started with an ELEMENTS PA is easy enough:
Simply select the performance class that suits you best.
If you need ultra compact, lightweight components,
ELEMENTS Smart Base and Easy Base are your first
choices.
These systems are built on a powered 10" subwoofer that
weighs just 19 kg. Its on-board amp also drives the mid /
high units or additional passive subwoofers.
If you want a mightier low-end punch because you
regularly play for larger audiences, then the ELEMENTS
Big Base PA is just right for you. It features a dual 10"
subwoofer powered a muscular 1,200-watt amp. These
amps also deliver plenty of power to add more mid/ high
units and a passive subwoofer to comfortably cover
audiences of up to 500.
The mid/ high units were designed specifically to port
your music far into the audience for everyone to enjoy
uncolored, crisp and highly defined audio images.
Equipped with eight or four fullrange speakers and
offering 140 Hz down to 20 kHz dynamic range, they
deliver signals with a silky-smooth top end. The mid/ high
units’ visuals are also a treat with their stylish look of sleek
elegance. Rest assured all the attention will be on your
performance and not on the PA. Best of all, they provide
plenty of SPL for larger gigs.
The ELEMENTS ELW 1 Locking Wedge
provides a secure connection between
the various modules.

Easy Base
Easy Base Stereo
The ELEMENTS Easy Base PA gets the job
done in many live situations. It’s a great
choice if you are not planning to add on
those wonderfully flexible ELEMENTS
extensions later down the line. A mono
Easy Base PA format is the no-fuss, nomuss solution for applications where you
can do without stereo sound, for example,
presentations and speeches at corporate
events, ensemble performances and oneman bands.
The stereo version of ELEMENTS Easy
Base is ideal if your sound reinforcement
scenarios remain much the same so you
are unlikely to need add-ons further up
the road. A stereo Easy Base rig is perfect
for sound sources such as keyboards or
the master signals of smaller bands and
ensembles’ consoles.

The name says it all: The new E110 Sub
Bass AS subwoofer boasts not one but
two 600-watt Class-D power amps so
ELEMENTS Smart Base can be easily
extended with other mid/ high units or
passive subwoofers. Able to deliver 2,400
watts in total, the power amps provide
plenty of headroom to play larger clubs
or smaller open-air gigs. But even with all
that power, ELEMENTS Smart Base still
fits comfortably in a car or station wagon.
Sub Add-On
This ELEMENTS Sub Add-On consists of
two E110 subwoofers that readily connect
to ELEMENTS Smart Base’s powered
subwoofers via Speakon connectors. This
not only increases the radiating surface
area, but also boosts output power substantially. It’s perfect for bands and DJs.
Top Add-On
This midrange and top-end expansion
pack consists of two E835 mid/ high units
that increase the radiating surface area,

Do you need the headroom of a large PA
but refuse to do without that trademark
ELEMENTS sound and handling ease?
Then ELEMENTS Big Base fits the bill.
With a whopping 4,800 watts total output
power, you can drive up to four dual 10"
subwoofers and six E835 mid/ high units.
That’s enough acoustical energy to keep
several hundred listeners happy. With
over two meters line length in the largest
configuration, this rig is able to throw
midrange and high frequencies across
distances that conventional systems can
only reach with the help of multiple delay
cabinets.

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.
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.
The acoustical properties of two E 435s
are identical to those of one E 835.

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).
The E110 sub AS is remarkably compact
and light, yet its two onboard 600-watt
power amps deliver twice the performance
of the E110 Sub A. And that makes this
subwoofer the perfect choice if you wish
to flexibly extend an ELEMENTS PA
system. Go for the optional Twin Packs
and you can run up to two subwoofers and
mid / high units for a total of 16 fullrange

This passive sub is the ideal add-on for
applications that demand even more
muscular low-end performance. It
sources its power from the E 210 Sub A
active subwoofer or EA 600 amp module.
A subwoofer with two 10" woofers
housed in a bass reflex enclosure, the
L Sub 1200’s hair-trigger response
delivers tight, punchy bass signals
ranging down to 38 Hz.
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 AS,
E 110 Sub A or EA 600 amp module. It
also sports an E-Connect port for mid/
high units with the amp module.
Sharing the mid/ high unit’s elegant
design, the power amp is a perfect visual
and mechanical match. Its 600-watt,
Class-D power amp provides plenty of
juice to drive four E 435 mid/high units or
a passive E 110 SUB and two E 435 mid/
high units.

Speaker Poles
The base accommodates the mid/ high

Its extendible feet ensure the mounted
elements sit on a stable, secure platform.
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.

Premium Pr:o
The PREMIUM PR:O series’ best-in-class acoustic
properties and features set standards for others to
follow. Its remarkably linear frequency response, precise
attack and decay, and tremendous sound pressure
certainly raise the performance bar. The audio image
remains transparent, homogeneous and remarkably
articulate across a very wide dynamic range. All
PREMIUM PR:O models come in rugged, road-worthy
wood cabinets. They not only deliver a stable sonic
image, but also stand up to the wear and tear of life on
the road. And the second generation PTC™ provides
reliable protection for high-frequency drivers.
Just 1.5 kg heavier than their passive siblings, the
active models ship with easy-to-use electronic circuitry
including a 600-watt, Class-D power amp. The powered
and passive versions’ acoustical properties are
compatible so the two are easily combined. All mid/
high units may be used as standalone fullrange cabs
and in combination with PR:O 18 and PR:O 210 SUB
subwoofers.

This 8"/1" fullrange enclosure delivers awesome
bass response and exceptionally high SPL for its
size. Its manageable format
and included mounting
hardware (PR:O 8 A only)
also make it an excellent
choice for expedient
permanent installation.
The active PR:O 8 A model
comes with power circuitry
that delivers 600W RMS
and a Speakon port that
accepts an added passive
cab.
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 feedbackresistant—frequency
response to suit very
different applications. The
PR:O 10 XA also features
an onboard power amp
and a Speakon port for
connecting a passive addon cab.
A fullrange enclosure in
classic 12"/1" format,
this cab’s balanced
sonic image, speech
intelligibility and high SPL
are impressive indeed. It is
the perfect satellite for the
PR:O 18 Sub. The PR:O
12 A also features 600W
RMS power electronics
and a Speakon port for
connecting a passive
auxiliary cabinet.
This high-quality 12"/1"
stage monitor provides
remarkably assertive
reinforcement for voices
and instruments. The
active PR:O 12 MA also
sports a 600W RMS
power amp and a Speaker
Out for another passive
monitor cabinet, so setting
up a large monitoring
system is easily and
affordably done.

Sporting a 15" woofer, this
cab delivers performance
on par with the PR:O 12,
but with even more
muscular low-midrange
and bass response. And
that makes it a great
choice for standalone
deployment without a
subwoofer. The active
PR:O 15 A model also
features a 600W RMS
power amp and a Speakon
port that accepts a
passive add-on cab.
This multifunctional 15"/1"
cabinet delivers powerful
low-end response and
high SPL. Remarkably
feedback resistant and
amazingly articulate, it will
also serve you well as a
monitor. The active PR:O
15 XA model ships with
600W RMS power circuitry
and a Speakon port to
connect a passive auxiliary
cabinet.
Housed in a bass reflex
enclosure, the two 10"
woofers pack a powerful
punch and deliver lowranging bass response
that is sure to impress
and amaze. Remarkably
compact, versatile and
light at less than 26 kg, it
is readily combined with
mid/ high units to deliver
outstanding performance
as a system. Setting up
and operating such a
powerful yet inconspicuous
rig is a piece of cake.
Boasting an 18" woofer in
a bass reflex housing, this
bin delivers a low-ranging
bass foundation. The
specially designed active
stereo x-over routes the
right frequency spectrum
to the mid/ high unit
connected via the Satellite
Out. The active PR:O 18
Sub A model also ships
with a 600W RMS power
amp and a port for active
satellites.

The two PL 112 FA and PL 115 FA fullrange models’ amps
deliver a total of 1,000 watts each, with 650 watts devoted
to the subwoofer and 350 watts going to the high-frequency
driver. A DSP-driven controller ensures these components
work together to deliver optimum performance and reliably
protects speakers from overloads. Both models can be adapted
quickly and efficiently to different application scenarios simply
by flipping two preset switches.
The fullrange models’ connector panels sport independently
variable inputs for line, mic and stereo line signals. This
means the PL 115 FA and PL 112 FA may be used for small PA
applications even without an external mixer.
The 600-watt PL 118 SUB A subwoofer also comes with
exceptional features tuned to deliver superior results. A hybrid
design with a resonator chamber delivers impressive SPL from
the lowest sub-bass frequencies up to the crossover frequency.
The built-in x-over routes bass frequencies exclusively to the 18"
woofer and provides a frequency-compensated output signal for
the connected mid/ high-range satellite.

PL 118 Sub A
A compact and comfortably portable highperformance unit, this cabinet continues
to deliver remarkable bass response even
at high volume levels without sacrificing
any of the midrange performance that is
so vital to live sound.
Although just slightly larger and heavier
than the PL 112 FA, the PL 115 FA packs
a mightier punch in the bass frequencies
and low mids. And that makes it an
excellent standalone solution for DJs
and the perfect complement to the
PL 118 Sub A subwoofer in larger setups.
This powerful 18" subwoofer delivers
crisp, tight signals. Its renders higherregister bass tones with plenty of snap
despite its remarkably low-ranging
response. It’s everything the demanding
DJ wants and larger PAs need in a bass
bin.

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.
LINEAR 5 is exceptionally versatile: It takes just two
L5 112 FA units to set up a full-edged fullrange system.
Two stackable LINEAR 5 subwoofers may be added for
applications requiring more bass. What’s more, these tops
can also serve as delay line monitors (the XA model) and
as speakers in distributed sound reinforcement systems.
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
stand-alone 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.

ICON LTS
ICON LTS is an ultra efficient rig that delivers more
than 10,000 watts of Class-D power from a compact
plug & play package. Consisting of ‘smart’ IC 112 LA
mid-/high units with built-in DSPs paired with IC 118
BA subwoofers, this rig is an excellent choice for tents,
clubs, open-air stages and other venues that demand
substantial SPL. ICON LTS is always a world-class
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. It lets you keep track of key performance
parameters such as input and output levels, the amp
modules’ temperatures, drivers’ loads, and limiter
activation. You can even fine-tune 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 in diagnosing errors, particularly
for conducting after-action checkups on dry-hire gear.
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
The ConTour Series comprises professional-grade,
high-performance speakers well suited for many
applications. Common to all models is HK AUDIO’s
trademark versatility, handling ease and old-world
craftsmanship. They raise the bar for speech intelligibility
and phase linearity. Housed in dual-purpose enclosures,
they may be deployed as FOH speakers and as stage
monitors. CT models were designed for loud rock stages.
They brook no compromises in their ability to deliver high
SPL, yet remain remarkably feedback-resistant.
For the best audio results, we recommend operating
these enclosures with a FIRNET or DSM 2060 controller.

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.

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.

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 developed 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.

The ELEMENTS Install Kit, in
combination with ELEMENTS E 435 and
E 835 units, gives you a highly scalable
line array. Engineered to deliver wideranging frequency response, its 3.5"
high-performance broadband speakers
deliver a richly detailed sonic image
across the spectrum. Its high-definition
signals render the human voice and topend frequencies with utmost fidelity and
outstanding speech intelligibility. And
courtesy of its remarkable load-handling
capacity, ELEMENTS delivers plenty of
SPL to cover large rooms.
E 435 Install Kit
Mid/High Unit
Our engineers developed the ELEMENTS
Install Kit to make inconspicuous
installation an exercise in speed,
efficiency and convenience. It consists
of two modified E 435 mid/high units and
mounting fixtures. Up to six mid/high
units (including wall-mount kit) may be
combined. An installed ELEMENTS system
swivels 180° horizontally for alignment
purposes. Once aimed, they units are
bolted in place simply by tightening two
Allen screws.

amp module is powerful enough to drive
three more E 435 mid/high units, or a
combination of one E 435 and one E 835.

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.

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.
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.
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

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.

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.

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.
