COSMO Line Array

COSMO C 8 Top Unit – First Component of a Newly Conceived, Highly Integrative Line Array System Set to Debut

HK Audio's new COSMO line array system combines state-of-the-art audio quality with ingeniously simple handling, utmost utility and remarkable economy to provide an extremely flexible, easily configurable PA for professionals.

COSMO raises the performance bar for line arrays, setting a whole new standard for productivity and efficiency. Integrative and versatile by design, it delivers measurably higher effective SPL in the HF range than comparable systems. With horizontal directivities of 100°, 80° and 60°, this upcoming family of ultra flexible systems will provide the bandwidth needed to cover the most diverse live scenarios.

The COSMO C 8 top unit is set to debut at the ProLight+Sound trade fair. Its 80° horizontal directivity. makes it the central building block for a set of mix-and-match systems designed to provide blanket coverage for the entire audience area. With the benefit of HK Audio's proprietary Multicell Transformer technology, these speakers deliver state-of-the-art audio performance, even at high sound pressure levels. Matched 6.5", 8" and 10" speakers will feature prominently in forthcoming COSMO modules to back up the Multicell Transformer's HF performance with powerful, assertive low-midrange response.

COSMO components are not only tuned to harmonize acoustically, they are also engineered for a perfect physical and mechanical fit. Haulage and storage are exercises in convenience and utility with these space-saving enclosures. Every top unit shares the same 60 cm x 45 cm footprint so individual components are easily connected without have to fuss with hardware adapters. These units fit right on top of one another, so there is no heavy lifting, twisting and turning to be done to set up a system. The array's curvature can be adjusted in advance on the dolly, so rigging and flying a COSMO line array is as easy as it gets.

Economic efficiency in action:
  • Far fewer components cover all FOH system requirements for most users
  • More mileage and gigging time out of each component
  • Simplified storage and logistics
  • Easier handling, faster to set up and tear down
  • Much smaller footprint in the warehouse
  • A lot less training—once is enough, rather than three times for three systems
  • Better long-term investment—one system builds on the next and may be extended in small steps
  • Far lower cost of ownership, far higher return on investment  
 The bottom line: COSMO's unprecedented multi-system concept is more economical. In other words, COSMO makes a lot more business sense.
