What makes the Sennheiser KB1 special is that it is a product which was developed in an environment (K-array) that is orientated towards the "professional" sector.

Innovation Elevated to Fine Art
In this sense it fits perfectly into the K-array brand: innovation and quality. Some solutions which have been adopted are unique in the entire panorama of products on offer, and are the same as those used in stage setup during concerts (e.g. the medium-high speaker has the ability to electronically vary the height of sound diffusion); the completeness of the instrumentation: the capacity to load different presets simply and at any time from a PC, the control of entry sound through an integrated professional digital mixer, and the ability to electronically modify the extent and the coverage of the sound vertically, make the instrument versatile and applicable in any situation with notable levels of quality; the materials are those present only in concert systems of high calibre: steel, aluminium and wood are high-quality materials, used in professional level products.

The musician and their sound
With a KB1 the musician becomes the true craftsman of his or her own sound. The PC is becoming ever more part of the personal equipment of the musician. The user can connect to his or her own amplification system while interacting directly with digital sound processors mounted on board. This becomes a simple way of creating the sound which appeals best to the musician’s tastes.

The digital mixer with 4 inputs allows those with more than one instrument to produce a unified sound, either to a sound technician or directly to the public, created according to the musician’s personal artistic preferences. Input levels, EQ parameters on each input channel, multi-effects with 16 presets, compressors, regulation of an auxiliary output, a headphones output, a main output channel, parameter filters for equalising the speaker on output, are all instruments that the musician will be able to find on board the main integrated mixer.

Setup, configuration, performance
Standard connections like speakon, XLR and jack guarantee that the cabling is easy and familiar to the user. In this way, even in an emergency, the cables provided in the packaging at the moment of purchase can easily be substituted for commonly available cables of the same type.

A 12" subwoofer for bass and eight 3.15" loudspeakers for medium-high frequencies guarantee elevated performance, preserving the timbre quality of instruments and voices. The configuration using a central pole for the medium-highs makes the KB1 a true line-array from the point of view of sound emission. It emits sound pressure which remains constant even at distance and which covers the listening area which great precision and uniformity.

The presets which process the output sound enable sound optimisation for numerous types of use and varied environments. All of the characteristics which have been described so far, apart from the facility for modular integration of several KB1s as required, make the system an extremely versatile tool, adaptable as monitors, amplification for solo-artists and, if doubled-up, as a main stereo PA system for an event. A special support which comes with the kit enables the system to be used as a monitor or as a front fill, by laying the medium-high unit horizontally and varying the inclination.
