For more than ten years, NCSSM's John Freidrick Educational Technology Complex (ETC) Auditorium has served as the school's primary host venue for guest lecturers, theatrical productions and musical artists visiting the campus. When the ETC Auditorium's original sound system was finally deemed to be inadequate for the 650-seat, single-balcony theater, the school called upon local integrator John Koelle of North State Sound to design and install a new system.
Today, the venue features left and right loudspeaker arrays each comprised of eight L-ACOUSTICS KIVA enclosures flown adjacent to three-KILO hangs for extended low-frequency response. The compact system is efficiently powered and processed by only two four-channel LA8 amplified controllers.
According to Koelle, "The KIVA solution, from a design and installation point of view, provided the ideal mix of compact enclosure size, low weight to ease rigging and flying complexities, and yet very impressive output and sound quality. Despite the very compact form factor, the KIVA line arrays produce excellent coverage and output in the house with minimal setup time and virtually no adjustments to the default LA8 presets."
L-ACOUSTICS is a leading innovator and manufacturer of high-performance loudspeakers, amplifiers and signal processing devices for touring and installed sound markets. Known around the globe for pioneering and championing the modern line array loudspeaker concept with V-DOSC, the company has received numerous accolades for its K1, KUDO, KIVA, ARCS, XT coaxial loudspeaker systems and SB line of subwoofer enclosures, all powered and processed with the LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers in fulfillment of a "total system approach." L-ACOUSTICS products for the US market are distributed by L-ACOUSTICS US of Oxnard, California.
