USA - d&b audiotechnik has announced the introduction of a new addition to the company's exceptional SL-Series line array family. The KSL-SUB, available in both flown and ground stack (G) versions makes its debut at the 2020 Winter NAMM show in California this week.
The new KSL-SUB provides a small, lightweight format that extends the frequency response of a KSL System down to 36Hz with “exceptional dispersion control, impressive low frequency headroom and unmatched performance for its size”. This directivity-controlled, smaller format sub enclosure allows venues of all size to experience very accurate, smooth and punchy bass response, says the company.
The KSL-SUB and KSL-GSUB subwoofers operate with two forward-facing 15” drivers and a single, rear-facing 15” driver which, driven with two-way active amplification, provide uncompromised cardioid directivity control.
Measuring 100 x 90 x 45 cm (39.4” x 35.4” x 17.7”) in size, and with a weight of 82kg (181lb), the KSL-SUB delivers an output of 139dB driven by d&b D80 amplifiers.
The KSL-GSUB has a streamlined form: minus the KLS-SUB standard rigging hardware. It stands at a diminutive height of just about 45cm, easily allowing for under stage deployment. Using a new KSL-SUB adapter frame the KSL-SUB can be deployed above KSL-Tops as part of a flown array.
Completing the comprehensive System package - and designed to fit within standard sized shipping container and trucks - the KSL-SUB is available in touring carts with protective covers. The hybrid KSL-SUB touring cart allows users to leave the KSL flying frame on top of the KSL-SUB adapter frame below the subwoofers during transportation if they choose.
“The KSL subwoofers are the next step in d&b‘s continuing obsession with innovation, efficiency, performance and directivity control,” says Werner ‘Vier’ Bayer, product manager, d&b audiotechnik. “The KSL-System is growing and we will soon introduce new options for permanently-installed applications. Watch for integration-specific KSL cabinet design options and an addition to the d&b installation amplifier portfolio to be announced at ISE 2020 in Amsterdam.”
The KSL System is designed for sound reinforcement needs of all kinds, mobile or installed, from largescale arenas, stadiums and festivals to medium scale applications such as clubs, theaters, houses of worship and performing arts venues.
