The POLAR column system provides a complete, customised sound solution for discerning musicians, DJs, entertainers, business presentations, schools and churches.

Compared to other models in its class, POLAR stands out with its impressive sound experience right down to the lowest bass, as well as its extremely comprehensive range of features, including an integrated mixer and Bluetooth 5.

XXL SOUND EXPERIENCE

High-quality speaker components deliver exceptionally transparent, natural sound from the deepest lows to the finest highs. This guarantees an XXL sound experience in every scenario – from discreet background music during dinner to the energetic climax of the event.

The column element of the compact POLAR 8 features powerful 2.5″ neodymium speakers with a 1″ voice coil in a curved column arrangement. Together with the high-performance bass speaker in a metal-reinforced, low-resonance plastic enclosure and the 1,200 watt (peak power) Class-D power amplifier, the system offers powerful, uniform sound and superior power reserves.

The 24-bit DSP in POLAR 10 and POLAR 12 delivers a homogeneous and low-distortion sound experience across all frequency ranges. The combination of a 1″ CD horn, high-performance midrange drivers and a specially developed long-throw bass speaker in an acoustically perfectly dimensioned wooden cabinet is driven by a generous 2,000 watts of power amp output.

TOP SOUND ALL AROUND

With its wide 120° throw pattern and low feedback tendency, POLAR is ideal for positioning on stage or in the room. In many cases, there’s no need for another stage monitor at all. POLAR can be set up without the lower column segment, making it easy to adjust the height from which sound is emitted, for example when used on a raised stage. The gradually declining volume level ensures sound pressure that packs a punch on the dance floor, a pleasantly full sound in the front rows and a conversation-friendly reduced volume at the back of the room.

When positioned on the floor, POLAR’s subwoofer, spacer and mid/high unit combine to create the ideal vertical orientation for both standing and seated audiences. When set up on a stage, it can be positioned at the ideal height without the need for the spacer.

MULTICHANNEL MIXER

The built-in multichannel mixer provides plenty of connections for a range of application scenarios: two channels for microphone or line signals and an Aux channel for pre-recorded music. POLAR 10 and 12 also have a special instrument channel (e.g. for an acoustic guitar).

All POLAR models receive audio streams wirelessly, with Bluetooth 5 providing greater range and a more reliable connection compared to previous Bluetooth versions. POLAR 8 also offers Bluetooth TWS (True Wireless Stereo), which allows two POLAR 8s to be operated as a true wireless stereo streaming system from a TWS-enabled smartphone.

POLAR 8 is extremely easy to use. The overall volume can be adjusted with an easily accessible Master volume control, while the Sub Level and Treble controls allow the overall sound to be adjusted to local conditions or personal taste.

POLAR 10 and 12 are equipped with a powerful DSP that adds straightforward and easy-to-use professional features to the systems:

  • Three sound modes (Music, Speech and DJ) and the semi-parametric Master EQ allow users to simply and effectively adjust the system sound. What’s more, five sound settings can be stored as user presets and recalled when needed.
  • When used for events in very large rooms or outdoors, POLAR can easily function as a delay speaker. Users simply set the distance from the main PA using the integrated display, and the DSP then automatically calculates the appropriate delay time.
  • The volume controls for the four channels, the master volume and the subwoofer are directly accessible in all operating situations. Less frequently used settings, such as the semi-parametric master EQ, can be changed via a rotary push-button control and the easy-to-read display.
  • The newly developed plug system connects the mid/high unit, spacer and subwoofer conveniently, securely and without wobbling. No cables required.

POLAR 8

POLAR 8 combines outstanding audio performance with straightforward handling to provide users the easiest way to get the best sound. The compact system is extremely easy to transport and delivers perfect sound quality, even in confined spaces, making it the perfect partner for small stages, rehearsal rooms, seminar rooms and garden parties. Two POLAR 8s can be connected via Bluetooth TWS in audio streaming applications to form a fully-fledged stereo system.

POLAR 10

POLAR 10 delivers everything users expect from a column sound system. It even outperforms many 12″ systems in its price range. That makes POLAR 10 the right choice for singer/songwriters, solo entertainers, presenters and applications in schools and churches.

The system comes with a padded transport bag for the column elements and a protective cover, also padded, for the system subwoofer.

POLAR 12

Especially for DJ applications where high-performance bass is constantly required, POLAR 12 with its larger cabinet volume and 12″ woofer delivers that extra kick of bass that enthusiasts love so much. But POLAR 12 is also impressive when used live with drums. The 12″ woofer with its 2.5″ voice coil can handle a greater thermal load and thus deliver higher sound pressure and headroom even for extreme level peaks. POLAR 12 is the right choice for DJs and bands who need big bass and dynamics.

The system comes with a padded transport bag for the column elements and a protective cover, also padded, for the system subwoofer.

Accessories

POLAR Wheel Board

The POLAR Wheel Board is the ideal accessory for easily transporting the POLAR 10 and POLAR 12 column systems. Handy features such as tailor-made cut-outs for the columns as well as milled holes for using tension belts to secure them, make everyday transportation of the POLAR 10 or POLAR 12 a breeze. What’s more, the slightly protruding edge of the wheel board protects the subwoofer from damage during handling.
