Anything goes, from sedate background music to accompany dinner to romping, stomping sound for the spirited high point of the event.
SWEET SOUND ALL AROUND
With its expansive 120° throw pattern and remarkable feedback resistance, POLAR 10 goes wherever you want it, be that on stage or in the room. In many cases, you can do without a stage monitor altogether. POLAR 10 can also be easily set up on raised stages and the like, simply by removing the lower column element which is a spacer to keep its directivity aligned with your audience. Loud on the dance floor, assertive in the front rows and conversation-friendly at the back of the room, POLAR 10s sound pressure gradually tapers to treat everyone in the room to a satisfying sonic experience.
Positioning POLAR 10 in any venue is incredibly simple due to the systems wide angle of sound dispersion, its homogeneous volume distribution, and its excellent resistance to feedback.
When POLAR 10 is placed on the floor, the subwoofer, the spacer and the mid/high unit provide the ideal vertical orientation for a standing and/or sitting audience. When set up on a raised stage, the optimum height is achieved by removing the spacer.
BUILT-IN FOUR-CHANNEL MIXER
The built-in four-channel mixer provides plenty of connections for many applications two channels for microphone or line signals, a special instrument channel, for an acoustic guitar or similar, and an Aux channel for pre-recorded music.
POLAR 10 also renders audio streams wirelessly via Bluetooth 5.0, which has four times the range of earlier versions.
Three sound modes (Music, Speech, and DJ) and the semi-parametric master EQ allow users to simply and effectively adjust POLAR 10s sound. In addition, up to five sound settings can be stored as User Presets, which can be recalled when needed.
For events in extremely large rooms or outdoors, POLAR 10 can be conveniently used as a delay speaker. Using the integrated display, users can set the distance from the main PA to the POLAR 10 system, and the DSP automatically calculates the appropriate delay time.
The volume controls for the four channels, the master volume and the subwoofer are directly accessible in all operating situations. Settings that are required less frequently, such as the semi-parametric master EQ, are accessed via a rotary push-button and the easily readable display.
The newly-developed E.A.S. Connect System connects POLAR 10s three main components comfortably, safely and without wobbling; cables are not required.

I decided to sell my LD Maui 28 G2's and buy a newer pair of speakers. I narrowed it down to a few choices and eventually picked a pair of these HK Audio Polar 10's. I picked them for their functionality, price point (value) and the included covers and 5 year warranty. Now that I have them I can only suggest you do too! These are great in every way. The way the columns slot into the sub is the most stable and secure yet, the ease of use is straightforward. Both the bags and speakers look and feel good quality (the speakers in particular look more modern than many other column systems). Now for the sound: You'll notice they say 2000w but not whether that's rms or peak. Well it's not rms. The Maui's were a 1000w rms and I'd wager these are just a little shy of that. They do go loud although it took me a little while to find the best configuration for them (which is to use a seperate lead for left and right speaker to achieve stereo sound). You can run the second speaker from the first speaker but the best sound is from running them seperately from your mixer (left and right channels). The bass thumps, and the mids and highs have clairty. These are big, but the subs have 2 handles and the columns pack away nicely. A pair of these will easily cater for between 150 -250 people although due to lockdown I haven't had a chance to put that to the test. For all round quality, value and performance I can't think of any other speaker that will beat these. As always I purchased from whybuynew, ordered Thursday and delivered on Friday. I'm incredibly pleased with this purchase.
