Amsterdam, The Netherlands (February 7, 2020)—The new d&b audiotechnik KSLi System will debut next week at ISE 2020. Based around KSLi8 and KSLi12 loudspeakers, KSLi-SUB and KSLi-GSUB, and a new 40D installation amplifier, the system is intended to provide systems integrators with a complete installation package.
Key to the d&b audiotechnik KSLi System are the KSLi8 and KSLi12, which the company states are acoustically identical to the mobile KSL System, providing 80° and 120° horizontal dispersion, respectively, with pattern control aided by the geometry of two front-facing 10-inch drivers and two side firing 8-inch drivers, which couple and apply cardioid techniques to cause directivity with low-frequency headroom.
The new KSLi SUB, meanwhile, can be flown in an array (KSLi-SUB) or ground stacked (KSLi-GSUB).
The 40D installation amplifier is designed for fixed installation applications and is the most powerful four channel Class-D installation amplifier in the d&b range. The new 40D amplifier also features a 4.3-inch color display showing a range of speaker settings, device status and more.
The new d&b audiotechnik KSLi System comes on the heels of the KSL-SUB, which was introduced at the 2020 Winter NAMM show, in Anaheim, CA. Available in both flown and ground stack (G) versions, the KSL-SUB is said to extend the frequency response of a KSL System down to 36Hz. The KSL-SUB and KSL-GSUB subwoofers operate with two forward-facing 15-inch drivers and a single, rear-facing 15-inch driver. Measuring 100 x 90 x 45 cm (39.4 x 35.4 x 17.7 inches) in size, and with a weight of 82 kg (181 lbs), the KSL-SUB delivers an output of 139 dB driven by d&b D80 amplifiers.
