Premium PR:O PASSIVE

 

 

Professional Sound Tools for Musicians
HK AUDIO’s new PREMIUM PR:O Series sets new standards in the category of passive loudspeakers for musicians. Not only does this series offer superior sound but it also comes standard with features that until now have only been found on more expensive professional equipment. And of course the central focus, as with all products from HK AUDIO®, is the sound—transparent, dynamic, and evenly balanced across the entire frequency spectrum.
 


Professional Caliber Test Results

The quality of sound is reflected in the excellent test data of the PREMIUM PR:O components, which compare very favorably with considerably more expensive concert-sound-league products. Strikingly linear frequency response, very even impedance response, precisely controlled transient response and decay, and the unusually high SPL all contribute to a quality of sound far exceeding previous category standards.
 
Professional Components
The “heart” of all PREMIUM PR:O full-range models is the new 1" driver, which produces extremely low distortion even under heavy load, resulting in wonderfully natural sound. In combination with the 60° x 40° horn it ensures that these system provide even coverage for their intended venues. The high-quality crossover of the subbass PR:O 18 subwoofer separates out the low-frequency partials, thereby relieving the mid-range components of the bass frequencies—a major factor contributing to the quality of sound and the reliability of the entire system.
 
Professional Features and Finish
The high quality of the internal components of the new Premium PR:O Series is matched externally by the sleek new look and the finish details. The ergonomically shaped and positioned handgrips are recessed into the housing, and no parts or screws jut out to damage auto upholstery or the like.
 
The full-range models also include flush-mounted threaded bushings to make professional permanent installation easy. 
The Subbass likewise includes convenient insert points for easily mounting the optional casters.
 
The trademarked DuoTilt™ speaker-stand mounting cup is a remarkably simple and effective solution for aiming the speakers optimally at the audience in any given venue. No complicated adjustments, no shaky stands, just fast, professional setup.
