Europe HK Audio has unveiled Polar 10, an ‘affordable new columnar PA for musicians, entertainers, DJs, presentations, schools and audiovisual applications’.
Polar 10 features include a four-channel mixer with five programmable user presets, Bluetooth 5.0 audio streaming, and assertive bass response.
Polar 10 consists of a subwoofer and two columnar elements. The contours of the subwoofer’s birch ply housing are not just cosmetic; the enclosure is acoustically shaped and sized to deliver quality audio results in combination with a specially developed 10” woofer sporting an extra-long voice coil.
The midrange/HF column comes in two sections for easy transport. The top section is loaded with six high-performance 3” midrange drivers and a low-distortion, 1” constant directivity horn. The system delivers well-balanced, exceedingly natural sound, rendering everything from low-mid frequencies all the way up to 20 kHz with remarkable authority. Tuned to project an expansive 120° throw pattern and engineered to impede feedback, it gives users freedom choice when it comes to positioning the PA in venues. Placed behind the speaker or performer, it can also serve as a stage monitor to take the place of wedges in many scenarios.
The newly developed E.A.S. connect system links the three components. This smart set of couplers requires no cables. Setting POLAR 10 on a raised stage is not a problem; it can still be aimed at the correct height by simply leaving the column’s bottom section – which is a spacer – out of the stack.
Rüdiger Forse, HK Audio’s senior product manager, said: “For more than 20 years, HK Audio has been top of the class for powered, impressively big sounding plug ’n’ play PA concepts. Now we’ve transferred this knowhow into the class of slender columnar systems. Polar 10 is outstanding in its product class and is sure to captivate audiences and users alike with its amazingly full sound, comprehensive feature list and easy handling – and all at a remarkably sweet price. We can’t wait for the world to hear it.”
