HK Audio introduces the SoundCaddy One System, a PA system in a single, mobile, self-contained unit 24/01/12
HK Audio has announced the SoundCaddy One system, which they say is "The World's Fastest PA" and provides the benefits of a line array/woofer combo in a compact and portable format. Inside the SoundCaddy One are three six-inch bass speakers, six three-and-a-half-inch mid/high drivers, a 600-Watt class D amplifier and a complete four-channel mixer. HK Audio say that this is an innovative PA system which is completely self-contained, and can be used for both speech and music. Here's the details in their own words...
As a single, self-contained unit, the SoundCaddy One provides plug-and-play convenience. Easy to transport, the SoundCaddy One can be moved into position on its built-in wheels. A firm push on its top releases the mid/high array, which rises from the cabinet on a pneumatic lift. Once adjusted to the desired height, it can be twisted to lock into place.
The back panel offers access to a full four-channel mixer. The mono channels (Mic In and Combi In) are each equipped with a Neutrik XLR/Guitar combo input, a volume knob and a tone control. Next to those are two stereo channels (Line In, Aux In), each offering a Volume and a Contour control. The Combi In channel features two Neutrik combo inputs; the Aux In provides both stereo RCA jacks and a single stereo eighth-inch input. Using the XLR Line Out, a second SoundCaddy One can be connected to create a fuller stereo or dual-mono system. Recording Out (RCA Stereo) jacks allow connections to other equipment. The Bass Level control makes it easy to balance the highs and lows.
For power, the SoundCaddy One houses a 600-Watt Class D amplifier. Three six-inch bass drivers provide a tight, deep low-end sound. The pop-up line array contains six 3.5-inch broad band speakers that together deliver excellent reach, intelligibility, and an easy-to-aim 70-degree horizontal dispersion that provides deep coverage while eliminating unwanted reflections. The SoundCaddy One renders speech and music with authority and power, and can easily provide satisfying full-range sound for smaller concert venues.
The 19-millimeter birch cabinet construction features cutaway handles, integrated wheels and protective skid guards. A protective cover is included. Pricing and Availability:
