From the Manufacturer
The Kara modular line source element has an operating frequency bandwidth from 55 Hz to 20 kHz. This response can be lowered down to 32 Hz with the addition of the SB18 low frequency extension. Kara features a 2-way, bi-amplied design and is equipped with 2 × 8″ neodymium LF speakers in a bass-reex tuned enclosure. The HF section features a 3″ neodymium diaphragm driver coupled to a DOSC waveguide. The K-shaped coplanar transducer conguration generates a symmetric horizontal coverage of 110° without secondary lobes over the entire frequency range. The combination of coplanar symmetry and DOSC waveguide allows the system to full the 5 WST criteria. Any Kara line source can be curved up to a maximum of 10˚ for each element without breaking the inter-element acoustic coupling. The Kara enclosure is made of premium grade Baltic birch plywood to ensure maximum acoustical and mechanical integrity. The 4 point rigging system allows suspending up to 24 Kara in a single array. The Kara system is driven by the dedicated LA8 amplied controller which ensures active system linearization, intelligent transducer protection, and optimization for 3 operating modes: • The “FULL RANGE” mode for standalone Line Source arrays or distributed applications • The “HIGH-PASS” mode for lls or for Kara as a K1 downll • The “LOW EXTENSION” mode for Kara/SB18 congurations. The performance of Kara depends upon the choice of electronic preset and physical system conguration.
