BEIJING — Chinese rental company LAB, the country’s first-ever L-ACOUSTICS Rental Network Agent, has purchased a K1 WST line source system from exclusive Chinese distributor Rightway Audio Consultants.
LAB’s first use of its new K1 system was for pop singer Jane Zhang at Beijing’s MasterCard Center, part of her Personal Look tour of China. A system of 12 K1s and three KARAs per side was flown, with six K1-SB subwoofers suspended behind each K1 hang in a cardioid configuration.
In addition, 24 KUDOs were used as side hangs for offstage fill and six KARAs for front fill, with a total of 12 SB28 subs. The monitor system included 16 115XT HiQ active coaxials, two MTD 108As, four ARCS and four SB28 subs. The whole system was powered by a total of 45 LA8 amplified controllers in 15 LA-RAKs, controlled using the LA Network Manager. L-ACOUSTICS’ proprietary acoustic modeling software, SOUNDVISION, was used to design the system.
LAB Technical Director Don Lo was very excited and happy to use the K1 system for the first time on Jane Zhang. “The K1 lived up to all our expectations,” he says. “It was a great system with exceptional SPL and excellent sound quality. I really love the power of K1 and we are all looking forward to using it on more shows in the very near future.”
