 LACOUSTICS KIVA



Product Code: KIVA

Overview
KIVA establishes a new reference in line source technology.
The system is offered as a modular package featuring the ultra-compact KIVA enclosure and the KILO LF extension.
KIVA delivers the ultimate performance with a compact footprint for fixed installation and rental production markets and complies with rigging and visual limitations in theatres, concert halls, convention centers, sports facilities and TV/broadcast studios.
Utilizing the unrivalled characteristics of WST®, KIVA delivers clarity, precision and intelligibility for vocal material with a unique near-field perception offering an incomparable listening experience. When combined with KILO, KIVA delivers an extended bandwidth with increased LF impact suited to music.
KIVA combines extremely quick set up and system integration with significant savings on storage and handling logistics. KIVA can also be implemented in pairs in distributed systems with a directivity of 30 x 100°.
The new LA4 preset library makes it sonically compatible with all other L-ACOUSTICS® systems.
