L-Acoustics has introduced its new Kara modular line source system. With a design inspired by the K1 stadium system, it features a compact size and lightweight enclosure complying with rigging and visual limitations and the complementary SB18 subwoofer for reinforced LF contour applications.

Kara delivers a number of improvements over its predecessor: added LF resources for increased bandwidth and coherence, improved directivity control in the horizontal plane, vertical coverage capability and improved ergonomics thanks to an integrated rigging system and lighter weight.  

With a horizontal directivity of 110° and a vertical inter-element variation up to 10°, KARA is fully configurable to match any audience geometry. Utilising Wavefront Sculpture Technology (WST), KARA delivers clarity, precision, and a unique proximity effect.

The new SB18 high power compact subwoofer is the ideal complement to L-Acoustics’ WST modular line sources and coaxial systems for applications requiring an extension of bandwidth with a flat to reinforced LF contour.

The 18-inch transducers specifically designed for SB18 combine high excursion capabilities, low thermal compression and reduced distortion. The bass-reflex vents feature a progressive profile allowing laminar airflow and reduced turbulence noise.

The SB18 design is based on a single 18’-inch LF transducer integrated into a dual bass-reflex tuned enclosure to deliver both impact and high sensitivity. Its size and damping characteristics make it well suited for compact FOH applications. The unit is particularly recommended by the manufacturer for use with Kara (either coupled/flown or stacked configurations), Kiva, Arcs and coaxial LF contour reinforcement in both standard and cardioid modes.

Also new is the LA-AES3 AES/EBU input card. First in the family of optional extensions for LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers, LA-AES3 offers one AES/EBU stereo input and one AES/EBU through port (link) to connect an LA4 or LA8 to any digital mixing desk or audio distribution network, while maintaining a fully digital signal path.
