LUCAS Nano 300 – Too Wonderful for Words
The engineers’ design brief was dauntingly ambitious - develop the new member of the LUCAS family, but make it much smaller, more efficient and more versatile than its siblings. The HK AUDIO team succeeded with style. The first glimpse of LUCAS Nano 300 in action is so astounding that most people are too dumbstruck for words. A bellowed “wow” or a whispered “unbelievable' is the best most can do.
Small wonder that they are flabbergasted: The ultra compact subwoofer and the two fist-sized satellites astonish with an audio experience to rival that of far larger rigs.
No bigger than a beverage crate, this mighty mite tips the scales at just 10 kg. Thanks to its very comfortable grips, the system is a dream to carry. Just like that, the two satellites simply click-fit into a transport bay in the subwoofer’s housing. Made of post space age material, they weigh just 1 kg each.
It took all of HK Audio’s considerable R&D capabilities to come up with LUCAS Nano 300. In 36 months of painstaking efforts, our engineers screened nearly all legacy audio and acoustical technologies, put each through a battery of rigorous tests, and boiled the best down to fit the absurdly small format of Nano 300. And the performance that this petit package delivers is nothing short of amazing - 44 to 20 kHz frequency response, 230 watts, and up to 120 dB SPL.
THE RESULT: Probably the world’s smallest, lightest, and pound-for-pound loudest PA!
More than merely an ultra portable sound reinforcement solution, LUCAS Nano 300 is an ingeniously engineered, phenomenally versatile rig for a host of applications.
You may be an acoustic guitarist who needs reliable backup for small pub gigs. A keyboardist who needs a handy monitor. A DJ who needs a sound system for parties. Or you may simply need a near-field PA for fair events, conferences, presentations, or sales promotions. But whatever it is you need, know this: LUCAS Nano 300 always delivers clear, assertive sound and handles with ease that defies belief. And if you need a little more rig and a lot more volume, simply connect two Nano 300s. All it takes is one cord and few seconds of your time.
The mixing console built into the sub takes the notion of flexibility to unprecedented heights. With three channels onboard, handling Nano 300 is an exercise in convenience. Ports are available for all the usual audio sources, from smart-phones, notebooks and CD/ MP3 players to dynamic microphones and instrument signals. You’ll need no other outboard gear - and that’s what makes LUCAS Nano 300 a bona fide all-in-one solution for so many applications!
The subwoofer stands as a testament to our engineers’ epic development effort, the aim of which was to achieve unrivalled ease of use. Its specially designed enclosure not only houses all the system’s electronics including Class-D power amps, it also features a nifty click-fit transport bay that accommodates the two satellites.
Another ingenious design twist is the monaural power boosting option: Simply link the two satellites via Easy-Click connectors to create one even more powerful mono satellite with greater range.
And there’s a lot more to get excited about: You can do what’s best for the given application and go for the classic setup option, mounting them on a tripod or speaker pole, or locking them in place right on the sub. With the optional Add On Package No. 2’s combination tabletop tripods/ wall-mounts, you can even set the satellites on your desk or affix them to walls.
The 3/8' threaded insert integrated into the housing readily adapts to all kinds of accessories, so you can attach the satellites to mic stands, trusses, e-drum racks, and so forth. Wherever you go and whatever you wish to do, LUCAS Nano 300 goes there with you and leaves a spectacularly small footprint when it gets there.
