Installed Sound Applications
With more than 20 years of experience in designing and manufacturing sound reinforcement systems for the touring and MI markets, HK Audio entered the fixed installation market with a dedicated line of cabinets and accessories at Prolight+Sound 2002. Product specialist Christian Stumpp: "After having shown the first prototypes of our new IL range at Prolight+Sound 2001 in Frankfurt, we received a lot of positive comments and inputs from contractors and installers. A lot of the feedback went into the final design of the products so that we now have a very comprehensive line to enter this market segment."
The HK Audio Installation Line is designed for all kinds of indoor applications, from bars and shops to theatres and live music venues. The IL series features eight full-range and/or mid-high cabinets, including compact 4"/¾" IL 42, high SPL IL 12.2 (12"/2"), and IL15.2 (15"/2") cabinets which can be run in stand-alone mode or in combination with one of the four subwoofers. Subwoofers range from single 12" to double 18".
"Designing the Installation Line our main focus was to obtain a very natural voice and vocal reproduction with a small range of different models and accessories flexible enough to match all applications. For example, all the CD Horns are rotatable and for the IL 12.1 (12"/1"), IL 12.2 and IL15.2 we even offer an optional 90°x40° / 40°x90° CD horn that can be exchanged with the standard 60°x40° / 40°x60° horn without the need to change the internal passive crossover. There are only two different mounting brackets or eyebolts for flying the cabinets," Stumpp comments. All cabinets feature M8 / M10 threaded inserts, speakon and binding post terminals, rugged metal grilles and are available in black or white finish.
