installation description

  • Asproulis Experience was recently appointed K-array disctributor in Greece and completed their first K-array installation just shortly after at the Thessaloniki Concert Hall.
  • Production company D:Tek needed a powerful sound with long throw to cover the entire audience with uniform coverage, specifically for Mario Frangoulis’ Stranger in Paradise, accompanied by the Symphonic Orchestra of Thessaloniki with conductor Luke Karytinos.
  • After demonstrating a K-array system for Fragoulis’ sound engineer Dimitris Bourboulis in the theater, D:Tek and K-array were quickly given the green light.
  • The system comprised of 8 Kayman-KY102 loudspeakers in LCR order. The 4 Thunder-KMT218 subwoofers leading the L-R system were ground level while a Kommander-KA84 amplifier was used to drive the center line array.
  • A Pinnacle-KR402 portable system was employed for onstage side fills and the front fill was created with 4 half-meter Python-KP52 loudspeakers powered by a Kommander-KA24 amplifier.
  • Setup and tunning had to be executed in a short time frame during rehearsals so D:Tek utilized the easy-to-use K-framework program to regulate and tune the entire system in under the one-hour window.

“What’s counterintuitive is when the system was fired up, we achieved almost impossible coverage near to far field with inconceivable output for a speaker its size. When the listening position was directly under the speaker, even then it remained flawless. The sound was full, powerful, articulate, non-fatiguing and without a single dead spot in either area. the system was simply amazing and unmatched in this type of environment. The owners were floored and in disbelief with the final outcome.”
