Gearhouse Durban invests in K2
SOUTH AFRICA: The Durban branch of Gearhouse South Africa has expanded its audio inventory with the purchase of an L-Acoustics K2 system. The branch has bought 24 K2 plus 16 of the manufacturer’s SB28 subs.
‘Gearhouse Group already has a large L-Acoustics inventory, including 24 dV-Dosc here in Durban, so it was the first manufacturer we looked at when we were looking for a flagship system,’ said Gary Loader, the branch’s audio operations manager. ‘The K2 proved the best option for us. As well as complementing our stock of dV-Dosc, it also made sense to invest in equipment which would perfectly complement the Johannesburg branch equipment, which includes L-Acoustics K1, V-Dosc, Kudo, Kara and Arcs.
‘The KwaZulu Natal market is quite different to other regions in South Africa, with a strong conferencing thrust,’ he continued. ‘The K2 system was purchased specifically to service events in the Durban International Convention Centre and the lightweight system is perfect for this sizeable venue and its various corporate events.’
The new K2 system has already been put to use for a number of events both in Durban and further afield. One example of this came when the K2 rig was called in to augment the Johannesburg operation’s K1 system for a November in-the-round event at the FNB Stadium where well-known evangelist Angus Buchanan hosted The Sacred Assembly.
‘Like all the other Gearhouse teams, we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality equipment and service. The K2 system sounds great, it’s compact, flexible and really straightforward to set up,’ concluded Mr Loader.
