Livonia, MI (February 26, 2014)—Thunder Audio has taken delivery of its first L-Acoustics system, comprised of 36 K2 and six Kara variable curvature WST line source elements, eight K1-SB and 18 SB28 subs, six ARCS II constant curvature enclosures and 10 LA-RAK touring racks, each housing three LA8 amplified controllers.
Thunder principles president Tony Villarreal and vice president Paul Owen chose to buy the system—one of the first K2 systems sold in the U.S.—after hearing it last year at the manufacturer’s corporate headquarters in Marcoussis, France.
“In the past, we’ve always purchased large-scale systems based on the requirements dictated by a specific tour or application,” said Owen. “This is the first time, however, that we’ve taken delivery of a product purely from the standpoint of feeling in our gut that it will be a success. Given the overwhelming reputation of K1–as well as the more than 20-year legacy of K2’s predecessor, V-Dosc–we knew that getting in on the ground floor of this new system with such a stellar pedigree was absolutely the right choice for us and our client base.”
“K2 is perfect for so many of our customers, from corporate to touring to theatrical,” said Villarreal. “And, of course, the sound is absolutely phenomenal. We A/B-ed it with the other four systems in our inventory and felt that it shined above and beyond anything else. We really have a sense that this is very quickly going to become the number one requested box on the market, and we’re so confident in that fact that we’ve already put in a purchase order for an additional 48 K2 for early next year.”
