French L-ACOUSTICS Rental Network Agent Arpege has deployed its K1 system on Jean-Michel Jarre’s current world arena tour.

With branches in Paris and Nice, the rental company joined L-ACOUSTICS’ K1 pilot program in March.

Renowned for staging enormous concerts in unusual venues, Jarre’s current spectacle has been created for arenas and stadiums, featuring his greatest hits in a show merging analog synthesizers with huge video projections.

As the K1 system is behind the huge video screen used for the projections, experiments have been carried out on the left-center-right system in unusual configurations.

For example, in the Vorst national forest in Brussels, the system comprised three clusters of eight K1 cabinets and four K1-SB, with eight SB28 subs flown behind the center cluster.

The K1 system is being driven by LA8 amplified controllers mounted in LA-RAK touring racks. 

The K1 pilot program will carry on into 2009 in collaboration with a dozen companies before its official launch, anticipated to be sometime in 2010.
