HK Audio launches major new product lines at Prolight + Sound 2019
HK Audio returns to Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, Germany, for the 2019 show with two major new product family launches and an extension to the flagship COSMO integrative line array series.
LINEAR 7 is the latest, most advanced range in HK Audio’s industry-leading, made-in-Germany LINEAR series, which also includes LINEAR 3 and LINEAR 5. The five speaker models that make up the LINEAR 7 launch portfolio – including four mid/high units and one subwoofer – feature the most powerful and functional feature sets of any LINEAR product to date, pushing the LINEAR concept forward and extending the family with a line that meets the needs of future and more professional applications.
What really sets LINEAR 7 apart as the live tool of choice for pro bands, DJs and PA providers, though, is its state-of-the-art Ethernet-controlled DSP technology, which can even be used to control existing LINEAR speakers using LINEAR 7’s integrated DSP out. In addition, LINEAR 7 also offers user-friendly cardioid options – the relevant preset can selected with the simple press of a button on the subwoofer. LINEAR 7 is also Milan-ready – supporting the new and upcoming digital audio network standard for audio streaming.
Also new for Prolight + Sound 2019 is the SI series, a family of speakers tailored to meet the demanding needs of today’s installation market.
The first SI speakers – SI stands for System Integrator – to be launched are the P10i and P10j. These high-performance line-source speakers, each loaded with ten 3” high-performance drivers, are ideally suited to a wide variety of installation locations, from large rooms with long reverberation times and noisy indoor venues, to auditoriums, houses of worship and outdoor long-throw applications.
The SI line is also designed for use in voice alarm systems, is water and weather-resistant, and ready to order in more than 30 different colors, with a wide range of optional mounting accessories also available.
HK Audio first introduced the COSMO line array at Prolight + Sound 2018, and this year sees the debut of the COSMO C 6 speaker. The C 6 delivers incredible fullrange performance, and its wide throw pattern and relatively low height make it the perfect choice for venues where the first audience row is close to the stage and speakers are flown below 6 meters in height. Naturally, the C 6 combines perfectly with COSMO C10 and C8 speakers, making it the ideal option for the bottom section of a mixed array.
As well as all the new products on display, the HK Audio booth, located at Hall 8.0 A30, will feature the brand’s entire product portfolio, and the HK Audio team will be on-hand to assist show visitors around the clock.
Dipl. Ing. Lothar Stamer, HK Audio’s CEO, said: “Prolight + Sound 2019 is set to be another landmark show for HK Audio. We’re excited to launch LINEAR 7, the SI Series and the COSMO C 6 speaker in Frankfurt, and we’re looking forward to again showing the world why the name HK Audio is still synonymous with great sound, regardless of venue, occasion or conditions.”
