The KSL8 and KSL12 line array modules are specifically designed for medium to large-scale sound reinforcement. Sharing the same vertical directivity, size, footprint, weight, rigging and driver complement, up to twenty-four KSL loudspeakers can be flown in vertical columns. The 2-way active design combines ingenious cabinet geometry with forward and side firing low frequency drivers, these couple towards the front, cancel towards the rear and increase low frequency headroom. The driver compliment is completed by a hornloaded mid range and two high frequency drivers mounted to a waveshaping device.

The 80° horizontal directivity pattern of the KSL8 is seamlessly maintained down to the lowest frequencies the loudspeaker produces, while the high output capability can cover a distance range of over 100 m (330 ft), depending on the climatic conditions. The KSL12 has a wider horizontal dispersion pattern of 120° which is also maintained over the entire operating range.

The KSL System is a part of the holistic d&b approach addressing the broadest range of applications where high quality sound reinforcement and reproduction are a prerequisite. The resulting systems are based on many years of applied evolution, where a clear understanding of the tasks and requirements has been coupled with advances in available technology and streamlined to achieve optimal results. The component parts described here combine to form systems, all the elements fitting together within the d&b Workflow to deliver ease of use, predictability of results, flexibility and speed of deployment.
