Now available for the first time in the U.S., HK Audio offers its Elements modular sound reinforcement, which merges the benefits of modern line array technology with the portability and easy handling of ultra-compact P.A. systems. Elements enables users to easily put together a system suitable for every situation by using six easy-to-combine components. The system can be configured to support anything from an intimate speaking engagement to a multi-instrumental concert with a full 3,600W of FOH power.

Setting up the Elements system and tearing it down again is quick and easy. With E-Connect, HK’s proprietary integrated signal routing system, even the largest Elements setup is performance-ready in just a few minutes with a minimum of cabling. Due to the extremely compact and rugged design, every configuration fits into a compact car for ease of transportation.

The Elements system comprises the E435 (mid/high unit that houses four 3.5-inch broadband speakers), EA600 (amp module with Class-D power amp puts out 600W), E45 (stand is equipped with extendable feet, serving as a solid base for mid/high units, amp modules or the mounting pole), E110 SubA (portable 10-inch subwoofer that is a digital Class-D power amp providing 600W), E110 Sub and EP1 mounting pole.

Three models of protective bags are available. One model holds four mid/high units or amp modules and a mounting pole, another fits one stand and a third fits one subwoofer.

HK Audio Elements will be available at select U.S. retailers in February 2010 with these prices:
E435, $549;

EA600, $839; E45, $249; E110A SubA, $1,499; E110 Sub, $999; and EP1, $139.
