L-ACOUSTICS introduced the new KARA modular line source system at Prolight+Sound 2010.
Inspired by the K1 stadium system, KARA delivers the highest performance for the rental market.
The system features a compact size and lightweight enclosure complying with rigging and visual limitations and the complementary SB18 subwoofer for reinforced LF contour applications.
KARA delivers a considerable number of improvements over its predecessor: added LF resources for increased bandwidth and coherence, improved directivity control in the horizontal plane, vertical coverage capability and improved ergonomics thanks to an integrated rigging system and lighter weight.
With a horizontal directivity of 110° and a vertical inter-element variation up to 10°, KARA is configurable to match any audience geometry.
Utilizing the characteristics of Wavefront Sculpture Technology (WST), KARA delivers clarity, precision, and a unique proximity effect.
The LA-RAK touring rack and LA8 amplified controller preset library deliver an extremely advanced and precise drive system for KARA.
A wide range of system configurations to accommodate various LF contour requirements and integration constraints are available for the sound designer and system engineer, allowing high levels of creative freedom.
KARA and SB18 will undergo a pilot phase until June 2010 with a handful of rental companies which will collaborate closely with L-Acoustics’ R&D team and technical support to validate rigging, system setup and preset libraries. The system is then scheduled to ship in September 2010.
