K-array Introduces New Redline, Kobra, Python, and KMT Series at InfoComm 2012
Audio specialist Sennheiser, exhibiting at InfoComm 2012 in booth C9736, announces several new product lines from its distributed brand K-array. Manufactured and designed in Italy, K-array loudspeaker solutions offer space-saving designs and remarkable sound and performance. K-array's newest additions to its portfolio of professional loudspeakers include the Python and KMT series for professional and install applications, the KB1R portable speaker solution, and new Redline and Kobra Series models.
The new Redline series models -- KR102, KR202, and KR402 -- feature exciting updates to both the mid-hi line-array elements and powered subwoofers. The system now offers variable beam functionality and improved hardware and accessories. Each system features two channels of class D amplification housed in the subwoofer. The rear panel provides input for a balanced line signal, balanced microphone signal with phantom power, and digital signals in AES/EBU protocol. An integrated touch screen provides intuitive managing and editing of DSP controlling. Each system includes the following:
• KR102 -- Includes a pair of KMT12 (12") subs each with two channels of 1,000W matched to a KK 102 with (16) 2" neodymium speaker elements.
• KR202 -- Includes a pair of KMT18 (18") subs each with two channels of 1,000W matched to two KK102 mid-high arrays. A coupling assembly allows the speakers to be mounted side-by-side for narrow to wide coverage. (Shipping fall 2012)
• KR402 -- Includes a pair of KMT21 (21") subs each with two channels of 2,000W matched to two KP102 mid-high arrays. A coupling assembly allows the speakers to be mounted side-by-side for narrow to wide coverage.
The new K-array Kobra series now offer variable beam functionality with 2" drivers housed in an elegant and sturdy stainless steel chassis. The 50cm KK52 and 100cm KK102 are compatible with a variety of rigging accessories for vertical and horizontal line-array configurations to satisfy many different venue requirements during temporary and permanent installations. Integrating one of the Redline series powered subwoofers (KMT12, KMT18, KMT21), or KA series amplifiers, with specific presets for the KK52 or KK102, ensures excellent coverage of the entire musical frequency range. Both systems are available in black or white.
The all new K-array Python series features 3" drivers with variable beam functionality housed in an elegant and sturdy stainless steel chassis. The 50cm KP52 and 100cm KP102 provide excellent vocal intelligibility and response down to 150Hz. Both are compatible with K-array KA series installed amplifiers and KMT series subwoofers. They are available in black or white and are ideal for theaters, clubs, houses of worship, and more.
The new KMT multi-task subwoofer series features class D amplifiers, with a dedicated amplifying channel that supports varying speaker configurations, including single mid-high modules (K-array Kobra and Python series), multiple line arrays, or the passive version of an additional bass module. The rear panel provides input for a balanced line signal, a balanced microphone signal with phantom power, digital signals in AES/EBU protocol and on an XLR for ease of cabling. An integrated touch screen provides intuitive managing and editing of powerful DSP controlling. The line comprises the following:
• KMT12 -- Redline series "multi-task" powered 12" subwoofer with integrated DSP, touch panel and powered output (also to be available as a passive version in fall 2012)
• KMT18 -- Redline series "multi-task" powered 18" subwoofer with integrated DSP, touch panel and powered output (also to be available as a passive version, both expected to ship fall 2012)
• KMT21 -- Redline series "multi-task" powered 21" subwoofer with integrated DSP, touch panel and powered output (also to be available as a passive version in fall 2012)
During InfoComm, K-array will also preview its upcoming additions to the KMT subwoofer series. It will also show the KB1R powered speaker, ideal as an extension to the KB1 portable speaker system. These new products are expected to ship this fall. K-array will be demoing these and other products during exhibit hours at InfoComm in Audio Demo Room N119 (Sennheiser).
