L-Acoustics announced the launch of the Kiva II, a new ultra-compact modular line source, adding 6dB of max SPL versus its predecessor, maximized amplifier density with 16 ohm impedance, and a new rugged enclosure material.
Despite its ultra-compact format, the Kiva II features L-Acoustics’ Wavefront Sculpture Technology (WST), giving it a long throw capability and delivering even SPL from the front row to the back of the audience. Its coplanar transducer arrangement and new K-shaped coplanar transducer configuration generates a symmetric horizontal coverage of 100 degrees without secondary lobes over the entire frequency range.
Weighing only 31 pounds (14 kg), it’s aimed at installations in performing arts centers and special events demanding minimum visual obtrusion, and particularly in L-ISA multi-channel configuration installations.
The Kiva II will make its official debut at InfoComm and it will ship in late 2016. You can see it here.
