Kiva II offers more
The second generation of L-Acoustics’ compact Kiva line array will reportedly provide users with an extra 6dB compared with its predecessor. Kiva II also features 16-ohm impedance and an all-new, rugged enclosure design.
Weighing 14kg, the Kiva II cabinet employs the French manufacturer’s Wavefront Sculpture Technology (WST) waveguide for what L-Acoustics describes as ‘long throw capability and more even front-to-back dispersion’. The company also states that the cabinet’s coplanar transducer arrangement and K-shaped coplanar transducer configuration results in a symmetrical horizontal coverage of 100-degrees, without secondary lobes over the entire frequency range. At the time of publishing only limited information about the enclosure has been made available. However, the system offers a reported peak SPL of 137dB, is weather-resistant and will be joined by a wide-range of rigging accessories to facilitate a broad range of applications.
