Sennheiser has signed an exclusive distribution agreement for North America with K-Array, a PA loudspeaker and amplifier manufacturer based in Florence, Italy.

K-Array's compact KH4 self-powered, two-way, flat-panel line array is said to deliver consistent, high-quality audio in long-throw applications, according to Sennheiser officials. At less than 14 pounds, and measuring 44 inches wide by 24 inches high by 6.3 inches deep, it can produce 145 dB SPL. The vertical coverage pattern is variable between seven and 37 degrees, with a 120-degree horizontal coverage pattern.

The KS4 self-powered, dipole subwoofer is also 6.3 inches deep and weighs 82 pounds. An internal DSP module controls the KH4 mid/high pack and the KS4 subwoofer. The loudspeakers may be computer controlled remotely via dedicated PC software.

"The depth of the line and the crossover into various markets makes K-Array an extremely attractive brand. It will change the production standards of the live entertainment industry, "said Vaino Gennaro, business director for live sound products at Sennheiser Canada, in a statement.

"K-Array is lighter and smaller than traditional speaker arrays," added Dawn Birr, Sennheiser Electronic Corp.'s product manager for K-Array in the United States. "The KH4 has developed a unique high-power, flat-panel speaker technology for long-throw, large-venue applications. The space-saving design and performance-to-size ratio offer significant cost savings in production, rigging, transportation, and setup for medium- to large-scale live performance events."

Other K-Array products include the Kobra Systems, the Ka line of Class D amplifiers, and the KM8 ultra-compact, high-powered line-array stage monitors. The Kobra Systems comprise the KK200 and KK50 ultra-thin, three-dimensional, array loudspeakers, which are 6.5 feet and 1.6 feet long, respectively.

K-Array will be officially introduced to the North American market at InfoComm 09 and begin shipping in June.
