"The array has an incredibly true 120 degree dispersion pattern with little to no diminishment in the highs or midrange frequencies. It also throws very far. I don’t know how far exactly, but it hit the back of our venue with barely any coloring at all.”

Blake Smith, Bootsy Collins FOH Engineer at the Shanghai JZ Festival 2014

Electronic Beam Steering (EBS)

The ability to digitally adjust the dispersion of a line array element not only ensures the same listening experience to all audience members but, at the same time, limits the noise pollution in the areas where the sound pressure must be kept at a minimum.

The use of FIR filters is the biggest advantage of our EBS technology since it provides extremely high frequency resolution, which would not be possible using delays and traditional filters. EBS is an important component of K-array’s Concert Series and Firenze Systems and, along with other important features such as premium materials and impeccable sound quality, puts K-array products on the forefront of cutting edge professional sound reinforcement.

Slim Array Technology (SAT)

The practicality of transporting, the ease of assembly and the overall minimal footprint of the cluster are some of the advantages offered by Slim Array Technology. The main advantage of SAT is that the compact design allows for a better impulse response with respect to a diffuser with a voluminous box and controls the horizontal directivity even at medium-low frequencies where traditional line arrays elements tend to be nearly omni-directional.

As mentioned, traditional line arrays have a low directivity on the horizontal plane below a certain frequency. The SAT speakers have been mechanically designed to reduce and absorb sound emissions from the back panel. The resulting directivity looks similar to a hyper-cardioid figure. This preserves the desired directivity and produces minimal back emissions.

Another advantage of SAT is a better impulse response than that of a conventional line array element. In truth, a direct-radiating bass reflex box uses a resonant air volume that tends to reduce the definition in the low-mid range and does not allow the correct reproduction of fast transients. Instead, SAT’s compact design allows sound to exit instantaneously without resonance, generating a significant amount of sound pressure in the low and low-mid range with a fast transient response.

The combination of these two factors leads to a significantly better acoustic outcome with respect to the traditional line array elements, particularly in terms of sound definition and noise pollution outside the desired audience areas.
