Light and Sound deploys L-ACOUSTICS KIVA at ORF-Tirol Oktoberfest

[ATTACH=CONFIG]195011.vB5-legacyid=2657[/ATTACH]Austrian rental company Light and Sound has deployed an L-ACOUSTICS KIVA WST® line source system at the annual ORF-Tirol Oktoberfest at the Herbstmesse in Innsbruck.

With more than 20 leading acts and attendant sound engineers over five days, as well as daily live broadcasts, high demands are placed on the event’s PA system. Light and Sound made good use of L-ACOUSTICS’ SOUNDVISION 3D acoustic simulation program to create a KIVA/KILO system that guaranteed optimal sound and speech intelligibility at every listening position.

The main system consisted of five KIVA cabinets and two KILO low frequency extensions for left and right hangs, with six KIVAs and two KILOs for outfill. 12XT and 8XT coaxial speakers were placed on stage and used for infill and outfill, with eight SB18 under the stage providing sub bass. The system was powered by six LA8 amplified controllers in LA-RAKs.

The system performed impeccably throughout the five day event, pleasing the sound engineers and broadcasting team with its presence, clarity and detail.

Founded in 1984 by Dr Christian Heil, L-ACOUSTICS is a leading innovator and manufacturer of high-performance loudspeakers, amplifiers and signal processing devices for touring and installed sound markets. Known around the globe for pioneering and championing the modern line array loudspeaker concept with V-DOSC, the company has received numerous accolades for its K1, KUDO, KARA, KIVA, ARCS, XT coaxial loudspeaker systems and SB line of subwoofer enclosures, all powered and processed with the LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers in fulfilment of a “total system approach.”
