Sennheiser Electronic Corporation will introduce K-array, the newest addition to its family of distributed brands, at InfoComm 2009 in Orlando. K-array is a manufacturer of PA loudspeakers and amplifiers with global headquarters in Florence, Italy, originally established in 1990 as an acoustic research and installation provider.
K-array now manufactures very thin, lightweight loudspeakers for medium to large-scale applications, including touring, events, installed sound, and broadcast.
“K-array has already generated an incredible amount of excitement in Europe and the Middle East, and we are very pleased to bring the brand on board in the North American market,” said Dawn Birr, product manager for K-array at Sennheiser Electronic Corporation. “Installed and live sound professionals will be very impressed with the space-saving designs, easy set-up, and sheer power of the entire K-array line.”
K-array installed sound audio components range from four inches deep all the way down to half an inch, while retaining an incredible amount of power and adaptability.
Installed models include the Vyper 3D line arrays, Tornado point-source loudspeakers and the Kobra series of ultra-slim 3D line arrays.
Meanwhile, the K-array Red Line delivers clear audio for concerts, conferences, parties and other functions. The adaptable and portable PA systems are only a couple of inches wide, yet can deliver full, rich sound to an audience of 1,000 people.
The line includes the KR100, KR200 two-way loudspeakers, and KL12 and KL18 ultra-light subwoofers. The KR speakers measure only a couple inches across, and the KL subwoofers weigh just over twenty-five pounds. With adjustable coverage and extreme portability, they represent the best possible solution for event audio..
The KH series is for larger touring and other live events, consisting of the KH4 two-way flat panel line array and KH15 two-way ultra-compact line array. Both are self-powered yet measure only six inches deep. The KH4 is ideal for long throw applications, such as arenas, while the KH15 is designed for medium throw applications, such as theaters, concert halls, and churches.
The KS series is extremely portable, and easy to fly or ground stack. The KS4 “figure 8” subwoofer is also small and weighs in at less than 85 pounds.
The KA series of Class D amplifiers address all the needs of high-end applications. Each amplifier is outfitted with on-board DSP, which provides perfect signal processing for all K-array products, as well as a broad selection of dedicated presets.
Rounding out the offerings for live sound applications are the Overbass series of self-powered subwoofers and the ultra-compact, high-output KM8 stage monitor. The KM8 enables accurate reproduction of both vocals and instruments with high gain before feedback, and can operate alone or in an array of multiple units.
