d&b audiotechnik has announced the arrival of a new addition to its familial line array, the SL-Series. The newest member of the clan will be in the world for all to see at the NAMM show in California, from 24 January 2019.
The d&b audiotechnik KSL System is the versatile, no compromise smaller sibling of its ground-breaking big sister d&b audiotechnik GSL. The d&b KSL brought to market all the recognisable benefits of its Special Loudspeaker lineage, including; full range broadband directivity, extended LF response and advanced rigging options in an accessible size and performance package. The d&b KSL is designed for sound reinforcement needs of any genre, mobile or installed, from large-scale arenas, stadiums and festivals to medium scale applications such as clubs, theatres, houses of worship and performing arts venues.
Like all good siblings, d&b KSL and d&b GSL work independently or as perfect playmates; an ideal match in terms of tonality, headroom, coverage, planning and deployment infrastructure.
The d&b SL-Series represented a significant evolution in the design and performance of line array systems. The ability to control the full frequency spectrum minimised low-mid frequency masking in the reverberant field and allowed System Engineers to reduce the overall SPL level in venues. Which greatly improved the system’s intelligibility and dramatically cleaning up the stage monitoring environment. When used in combination with the d&b NoizCalc software, Engineers, Event Managers and Promoters can benefit from powerful noise emission modelling solutions for system configurations on outdoor events of any scale.
Werner ‘Vier’ Bayer from d&b Product Management said: “The SL-Series is the latest step in d&b‘s continuing obsession with directivity control, acoustical performance and optimal workflow. The industry and the environment in which we operate is constantly evolving and this means our systems are meaningful only when they deliver value to our customers and their clients.
Premium acoustical performance for the highest quality listening experience is but one dimension. Workflow and a fully engineered system solution is another, but we are now in an era where the control of sound dispersion and the minimizing of noise is of critical value to the events and the venues we serve. The SL-Series is, therefore, bigger in more than one dimension and we are delighted to be launching the KSL System to the market.”
