EAW KF760 LINE ARRAY
Eastern Acoustic Works (www.eaw.com) announces the KF760 Series Line Array, consisting of two horn-loaded, three-way loudspeaker models used in multiples to create a curved line source. Using a technique called “divergence shading,” the KF760 Line Array is designed for minimal signal processing with all loudspeakers set for equal output levels. Used together, model KF760 (medium- to long-throw coverage) and model KF761 (short-throw coverage) can provide uniform SPL and frequency response to the entire audience, from the front row to the farthest seat. Both models offer a usable 45-16k Hz range and are constructed of Baltic birch plywood with polyurethane structural foam, integral flying, and rigging hardware with captive, retractable hinges. The KF760 is about 190 pounds, and the KF761 is about 160 pounds, while their overall dimensions are the same: 14.5×45×31 inches (H×W×D).
