CONTOUR X

Our acoustical engineers had but one mission in mind for our flagship line of point source speakers – to get the most out of these remarkably compact housings. They succeeded. The latest in high-performance woofers from industry-leading makers deliver impressive bass response.


 The 24 dB crossovers and the newly developed horns with unusually large apertures reduce the overlap between the bass and HF channels to conjure richly detailed, articulate mids. This high-fidelity audio performance has another invaluable practical advantage: the minimized distortion increases the effective maximum sound pressure level by several dB. 

The new CONTOUR X series’ hard-wearing housings are built to withstand the rigors of the road and deliver years and years of reliable service on the touring circuit. The solid birch multiplex enclosures are certainly tough enough. Painstakingly crafted at the HK Audio joinery in St. Wendel, Germany, they come with an extremely rugged PU finish and a steel front grille treated with an anticorrosive coating. And with ingress protection that is compliant with IP44 regulations, CONTOUR X speakers are very good at keeping dirt and moisture at bay. 

Everything about these speakers is engineered for the realities of life on the road. With rotatable horns, four NL4 Speakon ports with Pin Assignment switches, two different monitor angles, many rigging and mounting options, and much more, this highly practical feature set is extensive enough to satisfy the demands of diverse applications. The ready-to-go tuning is another no-muss, no-fuss timesaving feature: CONTOUR X speakers deliver professional quality right out of the box, even without a controller. 

CONTOUR X was designed from the bottom up to be an integrative part of the new HK AUDIO rental portfolio. That means the power amp racks, software and C-Sub series subwoofers are all a perfect match and seamless fit for both CONTOUR X and the COSMO line arrays. This saves you money, training time and storage space. 

Speech reinforcement, on-stage monitoring, club FOH, front-fills—CONTOUR X can do most of everything and all of it well. Practically every event benefits from having CONTOUR X on hand.
