Polar 10 comprises a subwoofer and two columnar elements
Polar 10 is a new columnar PA system from HK Audio, designed for reinforcing a variety of performers and applications, including musicians and DJs, presentations and speeches. Comprising a subwoofer and two columnar elements, the system features a four-channel mixer with five programmable user presets, Bluetooth 5.0 audio streaming capabilities and what the manufacturer describes as an ‘assertive bass response’.
The midrange/HF column is split into two sections to allow added portability. The upper section features six 3-inch midrange drivers and a 1-inch constant directivity horn designed for low distortion. Tuned with a 120° throw pattern and engineered to impede feedback, it is reportedly capable of delivering frequencies from low/mid up to 20kHz. In addition to serving as a PA system, it can also be used as a stage monitor, replacing wedges if placed behind the performer. Polar 10 can also be placed on a raised stage and aimed at the correct height by removing the column’s lower spacer section out of the stack.
Meanwhile, the subwoofer’s birch plywood cabinet houses a 10-inch woofer built with ‘an extra-long’ voice coil, as well as a 2,000W power amplifier to drive it.
The system comes bundled with a padded gig bag for storing the columnar elements and a padded cover that protects the subwoofer while on the road.
