Over the course of an event, the mobile DJ must often meet a number of different audio requirements with a single PA system. As well as getting the party started and the people dancing, the PA is often used for speech applications, or to play unobtrusive background music.
When the party gets really loud and energetic, LUCAS 2K calls on its superior power reserves to deliver powerful bass at high volumes – all the while remaining perfectly balanced.
LUCAS 2K also excels as a PA whenever soft background music is required – for example at celebratory dinners – offering up a full yet pleasantly unobtrusive sound.
LUCAS 2K delivers extremely natural, transparent and easily understandable voice reproduction, making it the perfect solution for wedding speeches, celebratory toasts, or any other conceivable kind of speech application.

The best way of setting up
To achieve the best possible full-range stereo sound with a LUCAS 2K system, the subwoofer should be placed centrally, between the two satellites. Used this way, the satellites and subwoofer are optimally coupled in the crossover frequency range, allowing for the highest amount of usable SPL, and the sound can spread evenly throughout the entire room.
The two satellites are aimed at the dancefloor, and very slightly turned inwards towards one another. The wide 90° horizontal sound dispersion angle means even the area directly in front of the DJ booth gets great sound, without any unwanted phase cancellation or reflections from walls or ceilings.

Basses that match aesthetically and acustically: The LINEAR SUB Family for optionally more bass
There is an ideal solution for those of you who can never have enough low end: When it comes to extending LUCAS 2K, HK Audio recommends only the relevant subwoofers from the LINEAR SUB family. This is because the L SUB basses are a perfect acoustic – and aesthetic – match for LUCAS 2K systems.
In this setup, the two subwoofers – L SUB 1500 for LUCAS 2K15, L SUB 1800 for LUCAS 2K18 – are typically placed next to each other in a mono cluster, between the satellites. This results in homogenous sound dispersion in the bass and higher frequency ranges. The satellites stand to the left and right of the DJ booth, and are aimed towards the dancefloor. This is the ideal way to enjoy the most bass-rich LUCAS 2K sound.
LUCAS 2K Features
2,000 watts of pure power
The system subwoofer contains a new 2,000-watt power amp that was designed specifically for LUCAS 2K and offers extraordinary performance.
System subwoofer with advanced DSP technology
The DSP helps tune the LUCAS 2K sound perfectly to the needs of mobile DJs. From soft to loud, LUCAS 2K delivers clear, transparent and balanced sound.
Filter presets for supreme flexibility
The “Flat” preset offers a well-rounded, balanced sound, while “Bass Boost” pushes the low-end.
Bass Boost is the ideal filter when using a subwoofer extension.
Wide-angle sound dispersion
LUCAS 2K’s satellites feature a 90 x 55° HF horn. This results in sound dispersion which is wide enough to easily cover the dancefloor, while also being narrow enough to avoid any unwanted reflections off walls or ceilings.
Simple subwoofer extensions
If the single system subwoofer is not enough for the application, or the event gets bigger as time goes on, LUCAS 2K can easily be extended using subs from the acoustically and aesthetically matching LINEAR SUB series.
Ergonomic recessed grips and MultiGrip handles
In order to guarantee the easiest system handling possible, LUCAS 2K satellites feature ergonomic recessed grips, and the subwoofers feature HK Audio MultiGrip handles.
Made in Germany
LUCAS 2K was developed, is built at, and is distributed from our main HK Audio facility in Sankt Wendel, Germany – all to the highest quality standards.
Stereo sound with zero compromise
Combining a powerful active subwoofer with a pair of high-definition two-way satellites, LUCAS 2K delivers fully-fledged stereo sound across the entire frequency spectrum and at every volume.
Robust and elegant design
Sturdy, slotted grilles made of tough, hard-wearing metal combine with elegant design features to complete the LUCAS 2K look.
