|HK Audio has launched its new Premium PR:O Series at Frankfurt prolight+sound 2005. The series includes the PR:O 12 full-range cabinet, which can be used as a compact PA or as part of a satellite system. The PR:O 12 M is a classic monitor for vocals and guitars, the wedge-spaded PR:O 15 X can be used as a main PA or a monitor speaker. The PR:O 18 high-power 18" subwoofer features a high-quality crossover and complementing the PRO:12 and the 15 X to a more powerful system. The PR:O 15 full-range cabinet is designed for all applications that don't require a subwoofer.
Delivering a smooth and natural sound, the core of all Premium PR:O full-range models is the new 1" driver with extremely low distortion even at high levels. Driving through a 60° x 40° horn, the driver accomplishes the systems to provide even coverage across any type of venue. The full-range models also come standard with HK Audio's trademarked DuoTilt speaker-stand mounting cup allowing the speakers to be optimally aimed at the audience. The DuoTilt is now standard on several of the company's product lines, including the new Actor DX and Elias PX.
The ergonomically shaped and positioned handgrips are recessed into the housing. The full-range models have flush-mounted threaded bushings to facilitate professional permanent installation, and the subwoofer cabinet has convenient insert points for mounting optional casters.
Test measurements carried out on the Premium PR:O range show a strikingly linear frequency response, very even impedance response, precisely controlled transient response and decay, and high SPL.
