Asheville, NC (May 29, 2020)—First introduced at ISE in February, d&b audiotechnik’s new KSLi System will make its North American debut virtually due to the pandemic, when it makes its InfoComm debut in mid-June.
Intended for installations, the KSLi System features the KSLi8 and KSLi12 loudspeakers, combined with (KSLi-SUB/KSLi-GSUB) subwoofers, the new 40D high performance installation amplifier, and a range of system-specific accessories and customization options.
The KSLi8 and KSLi12 are acoustically identical to the mobile KSL System, delivering the same broadband directivity control, extended low frequency response and high frequency resolution in a package designed specifically for installations.
The KSLi8 and KSLi12 loudspeakers, with 80° and 120° horizontal dispersion, respectively, sport two front-facing 10-inch drivers and two side firing 8-inch drivers, which couple and apply cardioid techniques to cause directivity with low-frequency headroom.
The new KSLi SUB can be used either flown in an array KSLi-SUB or ground stacked KSLi-GSUB.
The 40D four-channel Class-D installation amplifier is designed to drive the KSLi loudspeakers and features a 4.3-inch color display showing a range of speaker settings, device status and more.
The new d&b audiotechnik KSLi System comes on the heels of the KSL-SUB, which was introduced at the 2020 Winter NAMM show, in Anaheim, CA. A new subwoofer, available in both flown and ground stack (G) versions, the KSL-SUB is said to extend the frequency response of a KSL System down to 36 Hz. The KSL-SUB and KSL-GSUB subwoofers operate with two forward-facing 15-inch drivers and a single, rear-facing 15-inch driver. Measuring 100 x 90 x 45 cm (39.4 x 35.4 x 17.7 inches) in size, and with a weight of 82 kg (181 lbs), the KSL-SUB delivers an output of 139 dB driven by d&b D80 amplifiers.
