Meet our new L-Acoustics Kiva II system. We've found the extraordinary combination of clarity, SPL, coverage and weight has completely re defined what a small line array system can achieve and we've found a place for Kiva II on many shows where we'd previously used point source alternatives - with outstanding results!

We deployed an L-Acoustics system comprising of 12X Kiva II and 2X SB15M for the event closing performance of Handel's Water Music performed by the Bristol Ensemble Orchestra at Bristol Harbour Festival. The 21 piece orchestra performed the piece aboard the Tower Belle, which cruised the harbour heading a flotilla during the performance. Thousands lined Bristol's historic harbour and the orchestra sounded absolutely amazing through the Kiva II. With limited power on board we configured the whole system to run on just one LA8 amplifier!
