With only light use, this HK Lucas MAX System is in excellent condition and offers superb value for money. It has only been used on a handful of occasions over a period of about 6 months. We are happy to include a full 12 month warranty on this product. A Pair of Speaker Stands are also included in this sale as shown. It does not come with covers, but these are available to purchase separately and would be recommended...
as due to the fact that it had been moved without covers, it did already have a couple of scratches - these have now been touched up with the correct HK paint, which is a perfect match.

Is life too short for compromises? Do you want maximum sound paired with max headroom? And do you want it in a compact system that you can transport all on your own? Then look no further, because we have developed exactly what youre seeking—L.U.C.A.S MAX.

As compact as the original L.U.C.A.S, but with audio quality and headroom that put many a “big” PA system to shame, L.U.C.A.S MAX pulls out all the stops when it comes to state-of-the-art appointments. Witness the professional neodymium speakers, 2,000 watts of digital power amp performance,and the peerless patent-applied-for DDO™ technology to boot.

Praise for the preceding L.U.C.A.S models went as far as to speak of a built-in audio engineer, but DDO™ takes that notion a step further. With its ability to achieve latency-free compensation of speaker coloration and smooth adaptation to human hearing, a stable, uniform sonic image is assured for every application from subdued dinner accompaniment to cranked crowd favorites to get the party roaring—no manual adjustment required!

Control Features

1 Limiter LEDs. These LEDs indicate the active systems operating status.
Green = signal present; Yellow = limit; Red = protect.

2 Gain. This knob adjusts input levels (volume control).

3 Balance. Twist the Balance knob to the left or right to adjust the relative balance of volume levels between the left and right channels.

4 Display. The numeric display indicates the currently selected system configuration (preset).

0 MUTE System is muted.
No signal is rendered.
1 SPEECH Voice/speech setup (announcements)
This option is tuned specifically for speech applications. The subwoofers level is reduced in order to minimize stage rumble, microphone handling noise, and the popping of plosive speech sounds.

2 LIVE 1 For live applications
The Live 1 setup delivers punchy, dynamic bass with fast transient response. Speech and vocals are very prominent in the overall sound.

3 LIVE 2 For live applications
The Live 2 setup delivers deeper bass at a slightly lower level. Speech and vocals are not quite as prominent as with Live setup 1.

4 DJ 1 For playing music on CDs
The DJ1 setup is tuned specifically for playback, with strong deep bass, moderate mids, and plenty of high-end presence.

5 DJ 2 For playing music from CDs or MP3s
Like DJ1, the DJ2 preset can also be used for playing CDs, but is optimised for MP3-encoded sources to revitalize the sound with more dynamic bass, smoother highs.

5 Up/Down. These buttons switch between the five different system configurations.

6 Subwoofer Level. Twist the Subwoofer Level knob to the left to cut the subwoofers level by as much as –12 dB and to the right to boost it by up to 6 dB.

7 Ground. Ground lift button for separating the signal and chassis ground in the event of hum.

8 Input Left / Input Right. (combination XLR and 1/4" jacks). L.U.C.A.S MAX is equipped with separate left and right channel inputs that connect to a stereo mixer.

9 Through Left, Through Right. Parallel output for routing the line signal (left or right line signal) to other systems, outboard components, monitor power amps, etc., via XLR cables.

10 To Satellite Left und Right. Connect these Speakon ® outputs to the left and right L.U.C.A.S MAX satellite speakers using speaker cables equipped with Speakon ® connectors.

11 Power Switch. On/off switch for the active system.

12 Mains Input. Use the factory-included Powercon ® mains cord to connect this socket to a wall outlet.

13 Fans. These fans (see picture on the left) keep the power amp modules cool.



Over the course of the last twenty five years, the name HK AUDIO® has become synonymous in Europe with live sound reinforcement systems of unrivaled quality. Made in Germany, these systems are the product of a lifelong passion and pursuit of a vision – the aspiration to deliver the perfect sound.

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 100,000 and more.

Today, systems manufactured in their world-class facilities in St. Wendel, Germany, are called into service for an extremely broad range of applications. Thanks to the efforts of a 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.


HK AUDIO systems are all-inclusive sound reinforcement solutions comprising subwoofers, mid/high-range enclosures and integrated electronics. Every system was developed from the ground up for a specific application and perfected for that purpose. Though all aspects of system design are important, none is as crucial as selecting and matching components. The sonic magic to which we aspire requires components that do more than merely function together – they must act in concert, harmonising to create systems greater than the sum of their parts. These are tall orders, indeed. To fill them all, HK AUDIO engineers developed many new features and technologies. These features are then handpicked and fine-tuned to suit each system. And by gearing every system to satisfy the requirements of specific sonic scenarios, we ensure that it delivers the best possible results for its intended application.

Digital Dynamics Optimization™
Active Compensation of Dynamic Distortion
Every speaker has a specific tonal character. Like an instrument, a speakers timbre is not static—it varies as volume levels vary. A speaker also generates distortion, partial oscillations and resonances. In a nutshell, its response is constantly changing. And in a system comprising several speakers, these undesirable effects can be multiplied. This is where the new patent-applied-for DDO™ (Digital Dynamics Optimization) technology comes into play. The resulting sound is strikingly clear and natural. Furthermore, it is stable and easily controlled from a whisper to a roar.

DynaClip™ Limiter
for the bass power amp
HK AUDIO DynaClip™ technology is a dynamic limiter developed specifically to enhance low-end performance. The DynaClip™ Limiter compensates for the subwoofers slower initial transient response, audibly improving pulse behaviour. This makes the most of low-frequency energy, and enhanced efficiency translates to more power.

Opto Limiter
for the mid/high-range
Mid/high-range frequencies are a breed apart from low-end frequencies, and they require a different type of signal processing. To this end, we use a technology originally developed for high-end recording. Its soft attack ensures smoother, more musical limiting that sounds inconspicuous, even pleasant. The original signal envelope remains largely intact, yielding a more dynamic and natural-sounding response.

MultiBand Limiting
Optimized for every frequency range
Several limiters are synchronised to process all key frequency ranges. This achieves balanced dynamic response and punchy projection for highly musical sound across the entire frequency spectrum.

Optimized Frequency Response Technology
An unprecedented technology, OFR™ delivers commanding yet well-balanced sound at every level. It compensates for speaker components?? non-linear frequency response and adapts the system??s sound to human auditory response.

Subsonic Filter
Protection against Low-Frequency rumble
The integrated subsonic filter suppresses accidental and unintentional signals such as footfalls, wind, or the sound of a hand accidentally brushing a microphone. It cuts these frequencies drastically, freeing energy to better render bass impulses. Goodbye squashed dynamics and artificial sound, hello authenticity and natural sounding high/mid range response.

Digital Amping
Enhanced Efficiency and Dynamics
With an efficiency rating topping the 90% mark, digital power amps are smaller, lighter, and more compact than conventional amps. The reduced thermal load on components clearly enhances reliability. The slew rate is far faster and the attenuation factor is higher, resulting in perceptibily more responsive and accurate performance.

Easy Setup and Handling
Less Pre-Gig Stress
All HK AUDIO?� Active Systems are designed as a cohesive unit consisting of perfectly matched components. Painstaking effort is invested to ensure easy transportion and swift set up. Handling and EQing couldn??t be easier, with no complicated and time-consuming tweaking challenges to master.

DuoTilt™, MicroTilt™& MonoTilt
Making the Most of Sonic Energy
DuoTilt, MicroTilt and MonoTilt pole mounts allow sound energy to be utilised far more efficiently. The DuoTilt offers angles of 7.5 and 15, and MicroTilt and MonoTilt 10, to better aim the mid/high-range cabinets directly at the audience. Troublesome ceiling reflections are minimised; the soundscape is clearer, tighter and more focused.
