K-array heads to CEDIA Expo and Commercial Integrator Expo (in booth #C1308) with its redesigned Lyzard Mark II loudspeakers that marry premium audio and design with extreme miniaturized housing to create a product “naturally designed for discreet use in a variety of intimate environments such as patio settings, outdoor kitchens, balconies, rooftop decks, firepits and cabanas.” No bigger than a chocolate bar and weighing less than a pound, the remarkable micro-loudspeaker range composed of the Lyzard-KZ1 I and Lyzard-KZ14 I, offers a new magnetic snap on/off grille for a “pure, minimalist aesthetic to make integration even easier.” For outdoor applications that require the audio to be completely invisible, the KZ1 I and KZ14 I recessed versions fit seamlessly for flush mounting installations.

Housed in a 2-inch aluminum frame and updated with a recessed feature for optimal mounting are the Vyper Mark II loudspeakers. K-array’s Vyper-KV25 II fits perfectly within a private cabana, pool area, or outdoor kitchen. Moving up in size, the Vyper-KV52 II has a peak SPL of 114 dB and selectable impedance, letting users select a resistance that suits their system and listening style best. Thanks to the top-to-bottom pass-through connector system, you can combine multiple Vypers into a line of sound to your liking, making this loudspeaker line perfect for environments where outdoor entertainment is paramount such as in dining areas, patios, and rooftop decks. Despite being the largest of the line, the Vyper-KV102 II is visually discreet enough to peak at 120 dB and still ensure focused sound near the listening field and at a distance.

For high-quality distributed systems and carved entirely from a single metal block are K-array’s Tornado-KT2 and KT2C point source loudspeakers, which feature a neodymium magnet structure and a suspension engineered for maximum linear excursion. The KT2 also has a wide operating frequency range with very low distortion and comes with wall brackets for fixed installations on flat surfaces such as a pergola, or fence post. Also available in a recessed model, the KT2C in-ceiling speaker is ideal for installations where there is no option to compromise on aesthetics.

Engineered to hide from sight without compromising on high-quality audio performance, the IP64-rated Rumble subwoofers are made entirely of steel, making them extremely resistant, even when deployed outside in tough weather conditions.

Varying in size, the Rumble-KU26, KU210, and KU212 are the perfect companions for K-array Lyzard, Vyper, and Tornado speakers as the combination provides full range frequency response with prodigious output and a virtually invisible profile.

The Lyzard-KZ14 and KZ1 speakers are IP64 rated, while the Tornado-KT2 and Vyper are rated IP65, combining innovation and functionality to elevate your audio setup. These speakers’ impressive IP ratings ensure resistance against dust and water, making them ideal for outdoor applications. K-array Rumble line subwoofers are also IP64 rated and have the added benefit of being protected from some of the earth’s harshest outdoor conditions. What’s more, you can customize the finishes of these speakers and subwoofers to seamlessly integrate into any indoor or outdoor environment, making them a versatile choice for any residential or professional setting.
