New audio products are launched all the time, but rarely is one introduced that is as creative and revolutionary as the KAN200 (Anakonda). Made by Italian speaker manufacturer K-Array, the KAN200 is a 6.6 ft long (2M) flexible array speaker. It was designed to meet the needs of challenging environments where a traditional box speaker can’t be used, but also where outstanding audio performance and sleek design are still required. The KAN200 is so pliant it can be wrapped around poles, installed on curved and arced surfaces and be literally twisted into a knot. And the crisp, clean sound is stunning; very impressive that something so novel sounds so good.
Each KAN200 has eight full range 1-inch neodymium cone drivers with a 0.75-inch voice coil, providing 300 watts RMS output. Max SPL is 96 dB continuous and 102 dB peak, coverage is 160 degrees horizontal and 10 degrees vertical, and it has a frequency range of 150 Hz down to 18KHz (+/- 6 dB). For additional low end extension the KAN200 can be mated with the KMT12 or KMT18 powered subwoofers. An added advantage to using the sub is that the amplifier in it can drive up to 8 modules. While one Anakonda is a lean 6 and half feet (and only 3.09 lbs), up to 32 modules can be daisy-chained together by way of an integrated NL4 connector, creating an elegant and seamless line of audio over 200 ft long!
Two fabric socks, one black and one white, are included with each KAN200. These can be used to protect the speaker from dust and dirt, and also to conveniently change the system’s color to suit the application. Wall brackets are also included for quick and easy installation.
The application possibilities are endless.. the question is not where can you put the Anakonda but where CAN’T you put it? Front fills, houses of worship, theme parks, interactive museum exhibits.. it’s uses are limitless. And with an IP55 rating combined with it’s stellar audio performance, the Anakonda is a great option for outdoor applications as well.
From their state of the art design and production facility near Florence Italy, K-Array excels in innovative audio creations. If you’ve ever seen the television show The Voice, the judges chairs are fitted with K-Array’s 0.5-inch KZ10, an ultra miniature line array element. From that tiny half inch speaker they also offer the high performance portable Redline series, all they way up to the self powered large format KH4 Concert Series line array system.
K-Array is truly an innovative professional audio manufacturer, combining incredibly creative designs with clean and powerful sonic performance. The Anakonda is their latest creation and more than meets both of those standards.
