HK AUDIO

The Soundmakers

About The Brand

Over the course of the past twenty years, the name HK Audio® has become synonymous in Europe with live sound reinforcement systems of the highest quality. Made in Germany, these systems are the product of a lifelong passion and pursuit of a vision – the aspiration to deliver perfect sound.

Company founders (and brothers) Hans and Lothar Stamer began producing their own loudspeaker cabinets in 1979 in a small shop in southwestern Germany. While the production space may have been small, their aspirations were not. Soon, the reputation of their products for craftsmanship and performance spread, prompting them to expand operations time and time again. Along the way, they served as Original Equipment Manufacturer to some of the most revered international names in pro audio. Over time, they developed and manufactured professional touring systems for larger and larger venues, including audiences of 50,000 and more. Today, systems we manufacture in our world-class facilities in St. Wendel, Germany, serve an extremely broad range of applications. Thanks to the efforts of our highly skilled and dedicated team of more than 200 people, HK Audio® has firmly established itself as one of the most distinguished names in professional sound reinforcement in Europe.

The Philosophy

From the very start, our focus has been the needs of our users, who challenged us not to be satisfied with standard solutions. Our mission is to deliver the entire package—high-quality sound and hassle-free setup, all tailored not just to satisfy but to exceed the demands of typical application scenarios. In close collaboration with leading sound engineers and musicians, we have forged a host of innovative solutions over the years. These solutions, together with the new technologies that first saw the light of day in the HK Audio® labs, have proven to be milestones—key developments in pursuit of the perfect sound reinforcement system. Today at HK Audio® we create systems for virtually every type of application, from the portable active system for the solo entertainer to the touring system for open-air venues with audiences of 50,000 and more.

Quality and Environmental Protection

All HK Audio® products are designed and manufactured with the same painstaking attention to detail. State-of-the-art computer-controlled production lines with precision CNC milling and metal-processing machines, fully automatic enameling systems, and robots that carry out a wide range of production tasks are all par for the course with us. Not only does this guarantee an absolutely consistent high level of quality, but it also assures a clean and healthy work environment. Unfortunately, not everyone takes environmental protection as seriously as they should; we decided long ago to set a good example. With pollutant-free wood, water-based enamels, and stringent recycling and waste avoidance strategy, we carry our share of the responsibility for the state of our environment.

POLAR Column PA Sound Systems

POLAR 10 and POLAR 12, HK Audio’s new column PA systems, are all-in-one sound reinforcement solutions tailor-made for discerning musicians, DJs, entertainers, business speakers, schools and churches. The POLAR series punches well above its weight, particularly when compared with rival offers in its class; the system packs a mighty punch, serving up big, bold sound that ranges deep into bass territory, and its impressive feature set boasts, among other things, a four-channel mixer and Bluetooth 5.0.

POLAR’s 24-bit DSP and high-grade speaker components deliver exceptionally clear and natural sound from 38 Hz up to 20 kHz. The premium subwoofer design and 2,000 watts of high power amping ensure an XXL sound experience from whisper-quiet to massive volumes.

While POLAR 10 suits all known applications for column systems well, POLAR 12 excels in situations where high-powered bass is needed for continuous operation over long periods of time.
