HK Audio Unveils the POLAR 12 Column PA System




HK Audio has unveiled POLAR 12, a full-fledged active full-range columnar PA system for musicians, entertainers, DJs, presentations, schools and audiovisual applications.

POLAR 12 combines outstanding audio performance with ultra-convenient handling to provide the easiest way to the best sound. Its 24-bit DSP and high-grade speaker components deliver exceptionally clear and natural sound from 35 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.



A wide coverage angle of 120° and an outstanding resistance to feedback make it easy to position POLAR 12 in any venue. It can even be placed directly behind the performer, meaning no separate stage monitors are required. POLAR can be set up without the spacer for even more flexible positioning options, e.g. on high stages.

POLAR 12 excels in situations where high-powered bass is needed for continuous operation over longer periods of time. Featuring a larger cabinet and a 12″ woofer, POLAR 12 delivers the extra helping of low end that bass enthusiasts love so much. This makes it an excellent choice for DJs who have to pump out a big bass sound throughout the gig. In contrast to the usual bass boosting with electronic filters, the powerful bass of POLAR 12 is produced physically by the long-excursion woofer in an acoustically optimized, wooden cabinet. That’s why POLAR 12’s bass delivers higher sound pressure and headroom even when levels spike, keeping the mid and high frequencies in perfect balance at high volumes.

The onboard 4-channel mixing console offers two mic/line channels, a dedicated instrument channel, e.g. for acoustic guitar, and an Aux channel for music players, as well as Bluetooth 5.0 Audio Streaming options. Users’ favorite POLAR 12 settings can be stored in five individual user presets.

The new E.A.S. connection system makes cables obsolete and guarantees easy setup, while ensuring POLAR 12 sits securely and stably in any location, and the included gig bag for the columnar elements and a cover for the subwoofer make handling even easier.

Rüdiger Forse, HK Audio’s Senior Product Manager, says: “Like its popular brother POLAR 10, the new POLAR 12 PA system combines outstanding audio quality with easy handling, and offers features that until today were found only on far pricier systems. While POLAR 10 suits all typical applications for column systems well, POLAR 12 excels in situations where high-powered bass is needed for continuous operation, even when levels spike. The unique subwoofer design and high power amping deliver the extra low-end that bass enthusiasts love so much. With POLAR 12, you can get the party started and keep it going all night long!”
