LINEAR cabinets have been the HK Audio ranges go-to solution for upscale performance for over 25 years now. Professional handling, richly detailed definition, ample headroom and high sound pressure levels - they set the performance bar for their respective class. And the all-new LINEAR 7 series takes it up another notch. Powerful DSPs and advanced smart connectivity not only deliver even sharper audio images. They also make gigging life a lot easier with a far more efficient workflow and a host of features that include enhanced power supply.

The latest in audio technology
Although the LINEAR 7 line's visuals and hardware appointments lean heavily on the sleek look and rugged features of the LINEAR 5 series, these enclosures come with a complement of elegantly refined details. HK Audio engineers reinvented the cutting-edge technology inside LINEAR 7 and revamped the cabinets acoustics from the bottom up. Latest-generation high-performance loudspeakers and drivers, custom-designed horns, muscular Pascal Class-D amplifiers, FIR filtering, a state-of-the-art DSP platform with awesome computing power and high-definition converters with a feature set as rich as this, the LINEAR 7 family is the precision audio tool of choice for demanding applications.

Cardioid pattern for real-world applications
While midrange and high frequencies are naturally more directional, low frequencies tend to radiate in all directions. Excessive bass levels can be quite the problem on and behind the stage. The more serious issue, though, is that promoters are increasingly making demands to limit the sound distribution range. And there is no alternative to cardioid technology when it comes to meeting specifications for low-range frequencies. With its hardware appointments and filter sets, the 18″ LINEAR 7 subwoofer provides a fast, easy way to configure effective cardioid setups.

• All models in the LINEAR 7 family feature analog balanced inputs and outputs as well as professional Ethercon ports. All devices in the system can be daisy-chained if required that is, connected in series.
• Presets are available to tune fullrange and multifunctional models to serve as standalone speakers, monitors or to be combined with subwoofers. Configuring cardioid bass setups is simple with the subwoofer's Cardio 1:1 and Cardio 2:1 settings.
• DSP Out is an XLR port that serves to integrate an added active speaker lacking network connectivity into a networked setup. This speaker's volume, filtering, limiting and delay may then be controlled independently. For example, this option brings LINEAR 7 mid/high units and LINEAR SUBs together in the same network. The same goes for LINEAR 5 LTS models and the L7 118 Sub A subwoofer.
• A Powercon mains socket connects the speaker to the power supply. The L7 118 Sub A subwoofer provides a second Powercon socket, an elegant power routing solution for larger systems.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.


Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
