German firm HK Audio has expanded its portable line array systems portfolio with the release of Elements Plus and Elements Install.
The Elements Plus range is comprised of two models – the E 835 and the E 210 Sub AS - while the Elements Install line is made up of the E 435 Install Kit: Mid/High Unit and the E 435 A Install Kit: Mid/High Unit with Amp Module.
The E 835 mid/high unit (£579 UK RRP) is designed to provide greater flexibility and power than its older sibling the E 435 when you want to set up bigger systems. With eight speakers, it can handle 300 watts at 8 ohms' impedance, and is ideal for those looking to minimise the number of mechanical connections in their rig. The E 835 and E 435 mid/high units’ design and tuning are identical, so combining them is simple.
E 210 Sub AS
The new E 210 Sub AS system subwoofer (£1699 UK RRP) comes with two 1,200-watt amps in its engine room. Power amp number one drives the two internal 10” woofers, with enough power 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).
E 435Install Kit: Mid/High Unit (£749 UK RRP)
HK has developed this new Elements Install gear to facilitate simple and inconspicuous installation. It is comprised 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. You can adjust an Elements system on mounting yokes 180° horizontally and fix it in place via the two included hex-head screws.
E 435 A Install Kit: Mid/High Unit with Amp Module (£899 UK RRP)
The active Install Kit is essentially the E 435 IL bolstered by 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.
