Kling & Freitag unveils 3 product lines
Kling & Freitag is unveiling three product lines at Prolight + Sound 2015 in Frankfurt: VIDA, system power amps and Passio Sub.
VIDA stands for “Versatile Intelligent Digital Array”. The “VIDA L” model is a scalable, controllable and full-range-compatible line array system.
Up to eight 1m modules can be connected to the integrated mechanics. Three different speaker paths are used in the VIDA L, which is equipped with 48 DSP channels and 48 class D power amps.
Here, the 6 x 6.5in driver, 12 x 3.5in driver and 32 individually controlled 1in dome tweeters are arranged coaxially on a Waveguide in an aluminium body.
The VIDA L module, which is suitable for mobile use and permanent installation, is protected by an opaque front grille. The three-way module can be extended with a cardioid module (VIDA C). The signal feed can be analogue or digital via AES 3 and Dante, with the option of redundant cabling.
Kling & Freitag will also present a new set of system power amps based on the new PLM+ and D series from the Swedish manufacturer Lab.gruppen.
The K&F D80:4, K&F D120:4 and K&F D200:4 are mainly suitable for the installation field, while the K&F PLM 12k44 and K&F PLM20k44 are specifically designed for live performances and touring. The five models cover different performance classes and come with a variety of innovations.
RPM (rational power management) provides the flexibility to assign different power to each of the four output channels - this removes the need for a bridge operation later on.
Other features include PFC (power factor correction), universal power adapters and various inputs - Dante (primary and secondary), AES and analogue.
Based on newly developed Lake core modules and K&F module pre-sets, power amps that are fitted with red front panels will be able to operate all standard K&F systems in future. The K&F system power amps for the rental and install areas will be available from early May 2015.
The Passio series from Kling & Freitag is rounded off by the compact subwoofer models, Passio SUB 12 and Passio SUB 15.
Two aspects which characterise the new systems are a passive crossover and high degree of efficiency. In addition to the combination with Passio (2 x 5in/ 1in), both models can also be operated at a reasonable cost with Gravis 8 / 12 and SONA 5 / 6 / 8 via the Lab.gruppen IPD-2400 system power amp.
The corresponding K&F pre-sets are available for download on www.kling-freitag.de and also on the Lab.Gruppen website.
Kling & Freitag will exhibit in Hall 8 on stand F 40.
