PK Sound’s T8/T18 Sub-compact line source system

USA - ACT Entertainment will present PK Sound’s new Robotic Line Source System at InfoComm 2024. Comprised of the T8 robotic line source element and T18 intelligent subwoofer.

Featuring PK’s patented multi-axis robotics, T8’s output - with peak SPLs reaching 143.5 dB - is precisely controlled down to 400 Hz in both the vertical and horizontal planes. The result is a high degree of flexibility and precision in system dispersion for designers or operators in virtually any application.

Used in tandem with the accompanying T18 intelligent subwoofer, PK Cell modular touring rack and PK .dynamics control software, the T8 system delivers PK Sound’s patented remote and real-time multi-axis robotic coverage control to a wider range of users and applications in the touring and rental, performance installation, theatrical, worship, nightlife and corporate event verticals.

Integrated inclinometers and network-based Auto-Array via .dynamics software enable each T8 module to recognize its position and angle within the system, enhancing the speed, safety and accuracy of any deployment. Robotic control, onboard DSP and network data are routed through ‘the world’s first implementation of Neutrik’s DR Series of IP65-rated connectors for maximum stability’.

A pair of vented 8” Tetracoil transducers with custom phase plugs manage low-frequency response while a Dual Ring Radiator coaxial compression driver handles mid and high frequencies. This three-way, high-directivity design offers detailed and variable pattern control of frequencies from 20 kHz down to 400 Hz, resulting in significant SPL reductions between on-axis and off-axis coverage points. A two-channel VE15 1,400 W Class D amplifier maximizes headroom.

The elongated waveguide of the T8 is robotically manipulated to offer variable symmetric and asymmetric horizontal dispersion in 49 configurations, from 60 to 120 degrees, so users can shape an array’s radial directivity remotely and in real time. This enables the configuration of tapered arrays, precisely tailored to meet the unique coverage requirements of any venue or event.
