HK Audio Polar 10 Column Speaker System

Add to Wish List
The new POLAR 10 boasts features that until today were found only on far pricier systems, such as a four-channel mixer with five programmable user presets, Bluetooth 5.0 audio streaming, and remarkably assertive bass response.

POLAR 10 consists of a subwoofer and two columnar elements. The elegant contours of the subwoofers birch ply housing are not just cosmetic; the enclosure is acoustically shaped and sized to deliver excellent audio results in combination with a specially developed 10" woofer sporting an extra-long voice coil. Driven by a muscular 2,000-watt power amplifier, this combination delivers rich, low-ranging bass response that packs an impressive punch even at high volumes.

The midrange/HF column comes in two sections for easy transport. The top section is loaded with six high-performance 3 midrange drivers and a low-distortion, 1 constant directivity horn. The system delivers well-balanced, exceedingly natural sound, rendering everything from low-mid frequencies all the way up to 20 kHz with remarkable authority. Tuned to project an expansive 120 throw pattern and engineered to impede feedback, it gives users freedom choice when it comes to positioning the PA in venues. Placed behind the speaker or performer, it can also serve as a stage monitor to take the place of wedges in many scenarios.

The newly developed E.A.S. connect system links the three components. Simple, safe and sturdy, this smart set of couplers requires no cables. Setting POLAR 10 on a raised stage is not a problem; it can still be aimed at the correct height by simply leaving the column's bottom section - which is a spacer - out of the stack.

The four-channel mixer offers two mic/line channels, one instrument channel for an acoustic guitar or similar, and one aux channel for music players. POLAR 10 can also render audio streams wirelessly via Bluetooth 5.0, which has four times the range of Bluetooth 4.0. The mixer's settings may be stored in five presets, to be accessed later as the situation requires.

POLAR 10's stylish visuals are no coincidence. Its designers shaped the column's elegant looks for it to fit right in at even the most upmarket gala event. The system also comes complete with a padded gig bag for the columnar elements and a padded cover to protect the subwoofer in transit.

This is THE best PA system I've ever owned. I purchased 2 HK Polar 10 units to use individually when performing solo, or in stereo when performing with my band. No shortage of volume and quality sound to fill any venue club/bar/hall.

I rented the Polar 10. Absolutely love the sound. Very full. The DSP options were great. The sound was consistent at all levels. Portable but built well. Still had some substance to it. Great wide sound dispersion but was able to throw the sound to the far ends of the room. I used it to DJ for almost 50 people (covid rules) and it was more than enough. I'm sure it would handle 100. I'd love to buy a pair someday for crowds of 150. Can't beat the value here. Half point off because I can't turn the top to direct sound on the fly.

I bought one of these units. I was very pleased with the speaker. Few weeks later bought the second one. Good sound, plenty of bass, easy setup , fairly light. Priced much lower then comparable units.

I own multiple speakers like Bose and QSC. But this speaker gave me a different perspective with a great price, great quality and powerful sound. I ended up trading in my Bose S1 pro. Thank you Cheryl Ireland of L&M Oshawa for your assistance.

Picked one of these up last week in Peterborough. A/B'd it with the Bose L1 and it absolutely kills it. The 4 channels and bluetooth are super handy for practice as well. You can't beat the value - and it even comes with a gigbag and padded cover for the sub. 100% would replace if lost.
