HK adds Plus and Install to its Elements range

AUTHOR: Inavate

HK Audio has added Elements Plus and Elements Install to its line of portable line array systems.

Elements Plus includes the E 835, a mid/high unit designed to provide greater flexibility and power than the older E 435. It is loaded with eight speakers and can handle 300 watts at 8 ohms' impedance. The E 835 and E 435 mid/high units’ have the same design and tuning.

The E 210 Sub AS is also included in the Elements Plus line up and comes with two 1,200-watt amps. Power amp number one drives the two internal 10" woofers, with plenty of juice left over to run an external passive type L Sub 1200. The second power amp delivers 900 watts at 2.6 ohms to drive up to three E 835s (or six E 435s).

The Install range includes the E 435 Install Kit that consists of two modified E 435 mid/high units and includes mounting yokes. Up to six mid/high units (including the Wall-mount Kit) can be combined. Installers can adjust an Elements system on mounting yokes 180° horizontally and fix it in place quickly and easily using the two included hex-head screws.

The active Install Kit, the E 435 A, is essentially he E 435 IL plus a powered EA 600 amp module, with mounting hardware in place of the top mid/high unit. This turns it into an active array that can power either three E 435s or a combination of one E 435 and one E 835.
