The POLAR column system provides a complete, customised sound solution for discerning musicians, DJs, entertainers, business presentations, schools and churches. POLAR 8 combines outstanding audio performance with straight forward handling to provide users the easiest way to get the best sound. The compact system is extremely easy to transport and delivers perfect sound quality, even in confined spaces, making it the perfect partner for small stages, rehearsal rooms, seminar rooms and garden parties. Two POLAR 8s can be connected via Bluetooth TWS in audio streaming applications to form a fully-fledged stereo system.

High-quality speaker components deliver exceptionally transparent, natural sound from the deepest lows to the finest highs. This guarantees an XXL sound experience in every scenario from discreet background music during dinner to the energetic climax of the event.

The column element of the compact POLAR 8 features powerful 2.5" neodymium speakers with a 1" voice coil in a curved column arrangement. Together with the high-performance bass speaker in a metal-reinforced, low-resonance plastic enclosure and the 1,200 watt (peak power) Class-D power amplifier, the system offers powerful, uniform sound and superior power reserves.

With its wide 120° throw pattern and low feedback tendency, POLAR is ideal for positioning on stage or in the room. In many cases, there's no need for another stage monitor at all. POLAR can be set up without the lower column segment, making it easy to adjust the height from which sound is emitted, for example when used on a raised stage. The gradually declining volume level ensures sound pressure that packs a punch on the dance floor, a pleasantly full sound in the front rows and a conversation-friendly reduced volume at the back of the room.

First off I want to talk about the 800 pound elephant in the room. The Polar 8 is NOT like the Polar 10 or 12. The 10 and 12 are very interchangeable in terms of function and power. The 8 on the other hand has a different use. Who should not purchase the Polar 8? Those who are purchasing their first system who can cough up the extra few bucks to get a Polar 10. Those need lots of really deep bass if they play a lot of hiphop and other modern pop music that uses 808s. Who should buy the Polar 8? Those who are looking for some side fill but don't want to lug in another set of 10s or 12s. In many cases, due to the layout of a room and number of people, the less of a footprint that a side fill can take up, the better. Those who are looking for a great appropriate second speaker or 2 for ceremonies or if they have to provide music for Dinner & Cocktail hours in a separate room from where the main dance is to. Those who have issues lifting heavy equipment. The Polar 8s can allow someone who has issues with heavy and bulky gear to actually get out there and be a dj for smaller events and yet offer an almost no compromise audio experience for their audience. Just as the Polar 12s can be of value to someone for their extended bottom end over the 10s, the 8s can be useful, it is just a matter of seeing their potential.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A 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. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • 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, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are 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

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.

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 the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new 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: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
