L-ACOUSTICS KIVA Installed Into Vantaa Martinus Concert Hall

vantaa_martinus.jpgVANTAA, Finland — L-ACOUSTICS’ Finnish distributor, Starlike Oy, has installed a KIVA/KILO system into the Vantaa Martinus Concert Hall, a 1,000-seat concert hall constructed in 1986.

The hall is home to the Vantaa Pops Orchestra, a 40-70 piece symphonic orchestra specializing in light entertainment, rather than classical music, and including ‘pop’ elements such as guitar, keyboards and drums. According to sound designer Sepi Myllyrinne, responsible for the orchestra’s sound, it was widely perceived that the existing system at Vantaa needed updating as audio quality is of paramount importance to the orchestra. Together with Martinus’ sound designer Esa Lindroos and the rest of the audio team, Myllyrinne evaluated many systems before concluding that the KIVA system was the clear winner in terms of audio quality, coherence, headroom, coverage and flexibility. “Even after using the system for a while now I’m still impressed with its sound quality every time,” he says.

The KIVA/KILO system installed by Starlike consists of three clusters. The left and right arrays are comprised of six ultra-compact KIVA line source cabinets and two KILO low frequency extensions, with a center cluster of six KIVA. The operating range is extended down to 32Hz via two SB118 subs, while four LA4 amplified controllers power the system.

Starlike and the client are both pleased with the results. “The sound is now coherent and the coverage is even in all parts of the auditorium,” says Starlike’s Pauli Molnar. “In particular, when we replaced the four previous subs with just two SB118, the sound became much bigger, deeper, tighter and punchier. I went to the first concert after the new system was installed, and the orchestra and the vocalists sounded fantastic. The system was very transparent — almost as if there was no PA at all! Setting up was fast and easy, and, as always, L-ACOUSTICS’ SOUNDVISION was a great tool in simulating the system in a 3D model.”

L-ACOUSTICS is a leading innovator and manufacturer of high-performance loudspeakers, amplifiers and signal processing devices for touring and installed sound markets. Known around the globe for pioneering and championing the modern line array loudspeaker concept with V-DOSC, the company has received numerous accolades for its KUDO, KIVA, ARCS, XT coaxial loudspeaker systems and SB line of subwoofer enclosures, all powered and processed with the LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers in fulfillment of a “total system approach.” L-ACOUSTICS products for the North American market are manufactured and distributed by L-ACOUSTICS US of Oxnard, California.
