The ConTour Array™ bridges the gap between conventional PA systems and large touring line arrays. Yesterday, deploying line array rigs for smaller applications was not a cost-effective proposition; today this new system is the first of its kind to put this technology to efficient use for many sound reinforcement scenarios. Local rental companies and touring top-40 bands can now get into the professional line array game with ConTour Array™.


Courtesy of state-of-the-art components and leadingedge engineering methods, the ConTour Array™ delivers superb dynamic response paired with exceedingly faithful sound reproduction. Alongside excellent audio quality, this line array is all about light weight, versatility and easy, practical handling. A highly scalable solution, the ConTour Array™ is in itself amazingly flexible. What’s more, it can be combined with ConTour Series™ speakers for even greater flexibility. When using the passive Subwoofer CT 118, there is a Contour powerrack supplied.

CTA 208 Mid/High

Able to produce a stable line array wave with great range and low susceptibility to the adverse influences of wind, the CTA 208 mid/high unit delivers the performance you have come to expect from HK Audio equipment. The enclosure is loaded with two 8“ neodymium speakers and four 1“ drivers. These highfrequency drivers are connected to two HK AUDIO Acoustic Lens HF transformers of the type featured in our flagship COHEDRA™ systems. In combination with DDO-Pro™ technology, this pairing delivers the ultimate in natural-sounding response.The special DualCurve™ Rigging System featuring 0° and 9° tilt angles facilitates deployment in both long-throw and near-field applications: When you opt for the 0° setting, the individual mid/high units are not articulated; instead they form a stable and remarkably coherent wave. This maximizes frequency bundling effects, thereby maximizing range.

 

With the DualCurve™ Rigging System, mid/high units may be articulated at a 9° angle to cover the near-field. And with that, the ConTour Array™ also provides excellent sound reinforcement for audiences up front. To set the curvature or tilt angle of the overall array, simply select the desired pick points on the rigging frame.Engineered for economy and efficiency, the entire array is easily and swiftly set up and torn down. The integrated three-point rigging assembly lets you readily connect mid/high units to fly them or to stack them on subwoofers—no tools required. Featuring neodymium components, the mid/high units are exceedingly light, and you’ll be delighted to discover that their low weight makes them even easier to handle.

CTA 118 SUB

Active System Bass

An active, direct-loaded subwoofer, the 18“ CTA 118 SUB serves as the system’s powerful engine room. All the required circuitry is on board, including a 56-bit DDO-Pro™ digital controller and two 1,000-watt RMS PWM power amps. One of the power amps drives the subwoofer’s 18“ speaker; the other is configured by the controller to drive a CTA 208 mid/high unit or a ConTour Series™ CT 108, CT 112 or CT 115 enclosure.

Packing a powerful punch, the CTA 118 SUB delivers low-ranging yet clearly defined bass response, rendering impulses with great accuracy and authority even when handling the heaviest loads. Filter presets have been devised for the various setups. They fine-tune the components of each configuration to work optimally with each other, ensuring peak system performance and reliability. Simply select the appropriate filter preset on the controller, and the integrated display will immediately indicate all information of relevance to the given setting.

The internal electronic circuitry is shock-mounted on rubber grommets, while a dolly facilitates transport and affords additional protection against damage and dirt.
