L-Acoustics Kara system heads to Oslo

L-Acoustics has recently seen Norwegian rental company Olso Audio invest in its Kara WST line source system.

The investment makes Oslo Audio the first rental company in Norway to invest in an L-Acoustics Kara system, ordering 24 cabinets from local distributor Scandec Systemer. Supplemented with SB18 sub woofers, the system is powered by L-Acoustics LA-RAK amplified controllers.

"Kara has a flexibility that will enable us to use the system for pretty much all venues in Norway," said Paal Klaastad from Oslo Audio. “For us the audio performance of the KARA system was never in question. As a long-time L-Acoustics user, we are confident that the sound quality is first class. The reputation of the brand ensures that the end users are also confident of the system’s performance. The scalability of the system, its integration with the LA-RAK platform and the ease of rigging and handling makes us confident that this will provide a good return on investment for years to come. We look forward to putting the system to use, and to collaborating with other network agents in Scandinavia.”

Oslo Audio’s Kara system was used for the first time at the ten-year anniversary concert of Crystal Canyon Studios, with a line-up of Kåre & The Cavemen, Ulver, Paperboys, Kitchie Kitchie Ki Me O and André Holstad. The system consisted of the 24 Kara cabinets with 12 SB118 subs and six 115XT HiQ coaxial monitors, powered by LA-RAKs.
