Canada (March 19, 2021)—PK Sound has released Trinity Install line array elements—an installation-focused version of its flagship Trinity large-format line array.
Intended for performance installations and live event spaces, and available in all-black enclosures, Trinity Install’s SPL and clarity can be controlled with variable coverage in both the vertical and horizontal planes. Intelligibility is dramatically improved by directing the system’s energy away from reflective surfaces as coverage is adjusted to meet the architectural design of the venue.
The vertical angles are set during installation using a fixed rigging system, while horizontal angles are locked into one of 22 symmetric or asymmetric configurations throughout a line source. A combination of FIR and IIR filters are applied to aid frequency response in the listening area.
Horn-loaded 12” transducers manage low-frequency response. The mid-frequency band is supported by four 6.5” midrange transducers affixed to the patented Coherent Midrange Integrator (CMI). Two dual-diaphragm high-frequency transducers, coupled directly to an integrated planar waveguide, are said to reduce distortion across the high-frequency band. A 6,000 W Class D amplifier powers the elements.
The CMI waveguide combines mid and high frequencies, working in tandem with precisely spaced low-frequency apertures, allowing for variable adjustability from 60-120° both symmetrically and asymmetrically so that designers can vary the radial directivity of individual modules within the array.
“Trinity Install delivers the impact and operational advantages of our flagship array family to high-performance installs in a fixed position, with our sleek, clean, and uncompromising new all-black design,” comments Darryl Ross, Senior Applications Support for PK Sound. “The response from our network and clients so far has been very encouraging, as partners can now offer a solution for concert venues, theatres, nightclubs, houses of worship, and other live event spaces that want the full PK experience for their performers and patrons.
