German pro audio technology and solution company d&b audiotechnik has introduced a new addition to its SL-Series line array family, the KSL-SUB.
The KSL-SUB is available in both flown and ground stack (G) versions and it will make its debut at the 2020 Winter NAMM show.
The new KSL-SUB provides a small, lightweight format that extends the frequency response of a KSL system down to 36Hz, allowing venues of all size to experience a smooth and punchy bass response.
The KSL-SUB and KSL-GSUB subwoofers operate with two forward-facing 15-inch drivers and a single, rear-facing 15-inch driver. Measuring just 100 x 90 x 45 cm (39.4 x 35.4 x 17.7 inches) in size, and with a weight of 82 kg (181 lbs), the KSL-SUB delivers an output of 139dB driven by d&b D80 amplifiers.
The KSL-GSUB has a streamlined form: minus the KLS-SUB standard rigging hardware. It stands at a diminutive height of just about 45cm, easily allowing for under stage deployment.
Using a new KSL-SUB adapter frame, the KSL-SUB can be deployed above KSL-Tops as part of a flown array. It is also available in touring carts with protective covers. The “hybrid” KSL-SUB touring cart allows users to leave the KSL flying frame on top of the KSL-SUB adapter frame below the subwoofers during transportation if they choose.
“The KSL subwoofers are the next step in d&b‘s continuing obsession with innovation, efficiency, performance and directivity control,” said Werner ‘Vier’ Bayer, product manager, d&b audiotechnik. “The KSL-System is growing and we will soon introduce new options for permanently-installed applications. Watch for integration-specific KSL cabinet design options and an addition to the d&b installation amplifier portfolio to be announced at ISE 2020 in Amsterdam.”
d&b’s KSL system is designed for sound reinforcement needs of all kinds, mobile or installed, from large-scale arenas, stadiums and festivals to medium scale applications such as clubs, theatres, houses of worship and performing arts venues.
