L-Acoustics Kiva IIL-Acoustics has launched the Kiva II ultra-compact modular line source, adding 6dB max SPL over its predecessor, maximised amplifier density with 16Ω impedance, and a new rugged enclosure material

Despite its ultra-compact format, the Kiva II features the company’s proprietary Wavefront Sculpture Technology (WST), giving it a long-throw capability and allowing high SPL from the front to the back of the audience. Its coplanar transducer arrangement and new K-shaped coplanar transducer configuration generate a symmetric horizontal coverage of 100° without secondary lobes over the entire frequency range.  

Weighing 14kg (31lbs.), its lines and flush-fitted rigging allow it to be unobtrusive in a wide range of architectural settings, suiting it to installation in performing arts centres and use at special events requiring minimum visual obtrusion, and especially in L-ISA multichannel configuration installations.

‘Kiva II retains the elegance of its predecessor but that’s where the comparison ends,’ explains Cédric Montrezor, director of application, Installation at L-Acoustics. ‘Delivering an extra 6dB, the new model offers an impressive peak SPL of 137db. With only a “1.5dB” price increase, Kiva ii is now the SPL-to-size ratio benchmark in its format category.

‘Beside the whopping SPL, we also bring reinforced weather resistance, a rigging visual safety check, and new rigging accessories to expand the range of applications.’

Kiva II will ship in Q4 2016.
