Scope out the new 2000 Watt Polar 10 from HK Audio
New to Macron Music is HK Audio and their incredibly impressive Polar Line-Aray PA systems. Unlike competitors the Polar 10 boasts a whopping 2000 Watts of power as well as combining outstanding audio performance with ultra-convenient handling. It has 24-bit DSP and high-grade speaker components and boasts all of the design and quality features that the modern day performer requires.
These ‘stick PA’ systems are becoming increasingly more popular as the Class D power amps make them light and because of their line-array design, the distribution of sound is super impressive considering the small footprint. The wide coverage angle of 120° and an outstanding resistance to feedback means it is easy to position POLAR 10 in any venue. It can even be placed directly behind the performer, meaning no separate stage monitors are required. POLAR can be set up without the spacer for even more flexible positioning options, e.g. on high stages.
While POLAR 10 suits all typical applications for column systems well, POLAR 10 excels in situations where high-powered bass is needed for continuous operation over longer periods of time. Featuring a larger cabinet and a 10″ woofer, POLAR 10 delivers the extra helping of low end that bass enthusiasts love so much. This makes it an excellent choice for DJs who have to pump out a big bass sound throughout the gig. In contrast to the usual bass boosting with electronic filters, the powerful bass of POLAR 12 is produced physically by the long-excursion woofer in an acoustically optimized, wooden cabinet. That’s why POLAR 10’s bass delivers higher sound pressure and headroom even when levels spike, keeping the mid and high frequencies in perfect balance at high volumes.
The onboard 4-channel mixing console offers two mic/line channels, a dedicated instrument channel, e.g. for acoustic guitar, and an Aux channel for music players, as well as Bluetooth 5.0 Audio Streaming options. Users’ favorite POLAR 10 settings can be stored in five individual user presets.
The new E.A.S. connection system makes cables obsolete and guarantees easy setup, while ensuring POLAR 10 sits securely and stably in any location, and the included gig bag for the columnar elements and a cover for the subwoofer make handling even easier.
