HK Audio Elements Plus & Install Series21 August 2012
What is it? The latest additions to HK’s Elements range of line array systems. Details Loaded with eight speakers and capable of handling 300W at 8 ohms impedance, the Elements Plus E 835 mid/high enclosure provides greater flexibility and power than the existing E 435 model – though design and tuning are identical, so combining the two in the same system is easy. The new E 210 Sub AS system subwoofer is powered by two 1.2kW amps: one to drive the two internal 10” woofers (with sufficient power to also run an external passive L Sub 1200), the second to drive up to three E 835s (or six E 435s), delivering 900W at 2.6 ohms. The Elements Install system includes mounting yokes designed to offer “simple and inconspicuous” installation using two modified E 435 mid/high enclosures. Up to six mid/high units can be combined; it’s possible to position an Elements system at 180° horizontally on mounting yokes and fix it in place quickly and easily using the two included hex-head screws. And another thing… The E 435A Install Kit is a E 435 IL mid/high unit plus a powered EA 600 amp module (with mounting hardware in place of the top mid/high) turning it into an active array that can power either three E 435s or a combination of one E 435 and one E 835.
