K-array’s Unique Owl Is Most Innovative Live-Events Speaker We’ve Seen in Years

karray-owl2-0115K-array’s new Owl (aka KW8) is one of the first audio moving head speakers to market. It’s outfitted with an 8″ coaxial transducer and a newly built-in camera tool to allow users to accurately focus their directivity of sound. This feature bridges the gap between AV in a revolutionary concept. The Owl provides up to 500 watts of power, 120dB of SPL and a frequency range from 60 Hz to 19 Khz.

The Owl follows K-array’s catalog of compact designed speakers by measuring 45x40x22 centimeters and weighing just 10 kilograms. Another near invisible speaker designed to be a problem solver in the most challenging of applications, going where no speaker has gone before.

The Owl has packaging that is stylish and compact, quick to assemble and deployed with DMX, USB, SDI and audio balanced connections which guarantees easy plug and play connections, easy to transport, and delivers extremely high SPL with unprecedented quality for a wide variety of performance types and venue configurations.

The Owl will be announced and shown for the first time at ISE 2015 in Amsterdam Feb. 10 – 12. More information will be on the K-array website soon.
