K-array: Born out of Necessity
K-array’s start began in 1990 in studio design and installation, specifically for radio and television. Its three founding partners set out to solve the problem using lavaliere microphones in Italian broadcast: they were unbalanced and therefore, would pick up hum from dimmers and power feeds. The solution was a miniature microphone with the pre-amp in the cartridge. K-array intensified its product development, manufacturing various electronics solutions branded by other companies as well as developing their own line of MI-based equipment.
By 2005, its sights had turned to live sound reinforcement. Creative solutions were required once again. The real problem with the usual approach to live sound was the cost of transporting and rigging speaker systems that were made of wood and airspace. The shear volume and weight of the traditional transducer systems was expensive and hugely inefficient.
An Array never seen before
The K-array KH4 was developed to overcome these problems with over 4000 watts of onboard power yet weighing around 100lbs, and measuring 6" deep. It was the first slim array technology speaker.
Quick to assemble and deploy, easy to transport and delivering extremely high SPL with unprecedented quality for a wide variety of performance types and venue configurations, the flagship series helped establish K-array as a manufacturer of innovative pro audio solutions.
Since then, K-array has maintained its reputation for revolutionary design by developing the next generation of touring systems as well as true line array elements for installed sound and portable systems that are highly intelligible and extremely discrete.
These cutting edge products are included in K-array’s extensive portfolio of product lines which provide ultra compact speaker solutions for medium to large-scale applications, including touring, events, installed sound, and broadcast.
