Company founders (and brothers) Hans and Lothar Stamer began producing their own loudspeaker cabinets in 1979 in a small shop in southwestern Germany. While the production space may have been small, their aspirations were not. Soon, the reputation of their products for craftsmanship and performance spread, prompting them to expand operations time and time again. Along the way, they served as Original Equipment Manufacturer to some of the most revered international names in pro audio. Over time, they developed and manufactured professional touring systems for larger and larger venues, including audiences of 50,000 and more. Today, systems we manufacture in our world-class facilities in St. Wendel, Germany, serve an extremely broad range of applications. Thanks to the efforts of our highly skilled and dedicated team of more than 200 people, HK AUDIO® has firmly established itself as one of the most distinguished names in professional sound reinforcement in Europe.
From the very start, our focus has been the needs of our users, who challenged us not to be satisfied with standard solutions. Our mission is to deliver the entire package—high-quality sound and hassle-free setup, all tailored not just to satisfy but to exceed the demands of typical application scenarios. In close collaboration with leading sound engineers and musicians, we have forged a host of innovative solutions over the years. These solutions, together with the new technologies that first saw the light of day in the HK AUDIO® labs, have proven to be milestones—key developments in pursuit of the perfect sound reinforcement system. Today at HK AUDIO® we create systems for virtually every type of application, from the portable active system for the solo entertainer, to the touring system for open air venues with audiences of 50,000 and more.
