Visual and Sonic Elegance
Kiva is an ultra-lightweight modular line source which can be deployed with or without a low frequency extension, giving it a remarkable capacity to adjust to long throw rental production or fixed integration constraints. With its sleek, compact and passive design, this variable Wavefront Sculpture Technology line source delivers an exceptional performance to format ratio.
Deployed without its low frequency extension, Kiva offers a discreet and lightweight solution that delivers crisp sound, perfectly suited to enhancing speech and vocal programs for theater and special events, especially in environments with strict visual or rigging constraints. When deployed with the SB15m subwoofer, it delivers a full range performance that is excellent for contemporary music programs.

KILO is the Low Frequency extension of the KIVA line source array system.Operating from 50 Hz the cabinet features a single 12'' neodymium driver in a dual-chamber bassreflex tuned enclosure.
The KILO enclosure generates an omni-directional coverage pattern. The addition of KILO Elements within the line source array progressively polarizes the vertical coverage towards the front of the system (the horizontal directivity also increases due to natural dipole effects).
The 3-point captive rigging system allows flying up to 12 KIVA and 4 KILO with interelement angles from 0deg to 15deg in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations. Being entirely compatible with KIVA the line source can be built with a combination of both cabinets using the same rigging components.
The KILO enclosure is driven by the dedicated L-Acoustics LA4 amplified controller. The performance of a combined KIVA/KILO system depends upon the choice of preset and physical system configuration.
