K-array USA Dealer Feature: Reason One

K-array 4th of July 2
In its inaugural year, K-array USA has managed to expand exponentially through a network of trusted dealers and sales representatives. One such dealer that has found tremendous success with the brand has been Reason One Productions.

Founded in 2014 by Eric Shalem, Reason One is an elite technical event production and audiovisual company based in Los Angeles, California that specializes in producing goal-oriented corporate and non-profit events throughout North America. The team pulls from their various unique backgrounds and experiences to start with a 360-degree approach and finish with highly detailed finishing touches.

A perfect example of their impeccable services employing K-array was the 2019 Independence Day Block Party in Los Angeles. The outdoor street festival required even audio coverage over a long distance with only a 1’-space between the LED video wall and the truss support columns to hang a PA for the live music component of the festival.

Although the entire street was blocked off, the placement of the stage and sound system was critical to not disturb the retail stores and vendors that lined both sides of the street that were open during the event, but had to have audio coverage 230 ft from the stage.

The system was designed using EASE Focus and Vectorworks. Two Pinnacle-KR402 portable systems were flown with two line arrays on each side of the side. The systems' four 21" Thunder-KMT21 subwoofers powered the top two and bottom two Python-KP102 line arrays (a total of 8 Pythons) on each side separately and independently for greater control. In the end, the client couldn’t believe that we were able to get that much sound coverage with such little visual impact.
