L-Acoustics KARA II


The L-Acoustics KARA II is a modular line source loudspeaker with class leading SPL per weight and footprint.  Perfect for applications that require clarity and long throw including performing arts and large corporate and special events.

KARA II has several key features including Panflex, which when combined with the inter-element angles (ranging from 0° to 10°) a KARA II line source system can be precisely tailored to any audience geometry.  The adjustable L-Fins allow consistent coverage and SPL distribution with precise focus in four different directivity patterns: 70° or 110° symmetrical and 90° asymmetrical, steering to either the left or right.  In it’s 70° configuration, the enclosure packs a full 2 dB more than in the 110° configuration.

The speaker also features L-Vents which is a progressive vent design that drastically minimises turbulence noise which leads to an increase in output capability.

On its own Kara II can be used as a main system for vocal reinforcement and music material with light low frequency requirements or as a complement to large sound systems in fill and delay applications.  Associated with its companion subwoofer SB18, Kara II modular system can accommodate any program material requiring bandwidth, contour and output.

The rugged enclosure is made for touring. It features ergonomic side and rear handles as well as enclosure protection elements. The captive rigging system is fitted with a visual safety indication making for secured and effortless deployment.  The enclosure is constructed of premium grade Baltic birch plywood to ensure maximum acoustical and mechanical integrity and is also weatherised to achieve an IP55 rating for outdoor operations.
