HK Audio returns to Prolight + Sound for the 2019 show with two 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 LINEAR series, which also includes LINEAR 3 and LINEAR 5. The LINEAR 7 launch portfolio is made up of five speaker models, including four mid/high units and one subwoofer.
LINEAR 7 uses Ethernet-controlled DSP technology, which can 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 be selected with a button on the subwoofer. The speaker family 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. The first SI speakers – SI stands for System Integrator – to be launched are the P10i and P10j. These line-source speakers, each loaded with ten three” high-performance drivers, are 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 colours, 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 C6 speaker. It combines well 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.
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 C6 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.”
