VASTERAS, Sweden – January 2010 — Swedish rental company Music & Lights has joined the L-ACOUSTICS K1/KUDO pilot program and will take delivery of a system in February 2010. The company joins several of the world’s leading rental outfits in collaborating with the L-ACOUSTICS R&D team to field test the new system.
Music & Lights’ system, which will be used for arenas, stadiums and large outdoor festivals, will consist of 48 K1 line source cabinets along with K1-SB and SB28 subwoofers, 36 KUDO line source boxes and LA-RAK touring racks fitted with LA8 amplified controllers.

“We have been looking for a full-sized system for a period of time and set up a list of criteria that the new system should meet,” says Micke Ljungberg, CEO and owner of Music & Lights. L-ACOUSTICS’ long experience underlines the great importance of the company and philosophy behind the system. We wanted a long-term collaboration rather than just buying a lot of boxes, and not until we started looking at L-ACOUSTICS and K1 were all our boxes ticked. We are thrilled to join the K1 pilot program and feel confident that this will be a good investment for the future.”
Music & Lights’ existing clients had been asking for a large format system like K1 for some time, and Ljungberg was conscious something was missing with the existing speaker systems in his inventory. “What we felt was lacking was sonic performance, power, rigging and safety,” he says. “After 25 years in the business not much makes me react the way I did when I first heard the K1 system; I was really stunned by the work L-ACOUSTICS had put in. They have managed to get the frequency response to be consistent all the way to the off-axis limit point, something I’ve never heard on any system to this day. Combined with the amazing power of the system, the best and fastest rigging in the business, plus the integration with LA8 amplified controllers and the great improved KUDO system made it a done deal! New clients are already lining up and with K1 we are certain to take a new share of the market.”
