USER'S MANUAL
K-array is the new voice that sings
aloud, "outside the choir", and whose
performance is better than any other
products.
Born on-the-road, in the PA world, where
you get no discount, you have to give your
best as fast as you can, often with a
"compressed" budget, K-Array systems
have been designed to give precise
answers to precise needs.
Driven by new generation digital engines,
with power/dimension/weight ratios that
are ten times better than any other
professional products, K-arrays can
deliver the full spectrum of musical styles
with clarity, power, punch, intelligibility
and evenness across both volume levels
and the frequency spectrum. These
systems can be remotely controlled and
come with a sophisticated on-board
software, allowing the user to shape their
performance to taste and needs. Inside
K-array systems you will find something
that only we can offer: the best in
technology, proudly conceived, designed
and produced in Italy. If they were cars,
they would be Ferrari. Don't agree to pay
for a simple brand, claim performance,
and don't believe those who maintain that
these products are only for few people,
the only truth is that K-array systems are
unique, but affordable and within
everybody's reach!

1. SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
!
CAUTION
!
• To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect the amplifier from the AC mains before installing audio cable.
Reconnect the power cord only after making all signal connections.
• Connect the amplifier to a two-pole, three wire grounding mains receptacle. The receptacle must be connected to
a fuse or circuit breaker. Connection to any other type of receptacle poses a shock hazard and may violate local
electrical codes.
• Do not install the amplifier in wet or humid locations without using weather protection.
• Do not allow water or any foreign object to get inside the amplifier. Do not put objects containing liquid on, or near,
the unit.
• To reduce the risk of overheating the amplifier, avoid exposing it to direct sunlight. Do not install the unit near heat
emitting appliances, such as a room heater or stove.
• No naked flame sources such like lighted candles should be placed on the device.
• The amplifier should be placed so that its location does not interfere with its proper ventilation. For example, the
appliance should not be situated on a bed, carpet, or similar surface that may create an obstacle for the ventilation
openings.

2. INTRODUCTION
The KL12ma features a 1000 watt 12" drive unit with magnet structure and suspension
engineered for maximum linear excursion.
Combinig the KL12ma with the middle-high speakers KR100, we obtain a high performance
ultra-slim powered two way system, called KR100S, designed for use with small to medium
wavefront systems, in both mobile and install applications.
The KR100S includes two KL12ma powered subwoofers and 2 KR100 1mt line array
satellites.
The ultra-light reflex cabinet is fitted with two pocket handles and one 35mm pole mounting
point for easy installation with every satellite speaker on it. It features large area porting to
reduce air noise. The KR100S ultra-slim satellite features a line array of 2" high efficiency
drive units with neodymium magnet structure and suspensions engineered for maximum
linear excursion and minimum noise problems. The ultra-strong chassis ensures high
resistance and durability also with hardest work conditions. All the KR100S components are
designed by K-array R&D department and custom made under K-array control quality
system.
3. VOLTAGE REQUIREMENTS
KL12ma operates safely and without audio discontinuity if the AC voltage stays within either of two operating
windows:
95-125 (voltage selector on 115 V) or 195-250 V (voltage selector on 230 V), at 50 or 60 Hz.
115-230
The device is default set to be connected to 230 V AC Power. To use the device on a 115 V AC Power you need,
before connecting it, to move the voltage selector's cover, just loosening the two screws, and to choose the correct
use voltage by the red switch. Be sure that both voltage set on the selector and AC Power have the same value .
Always close the voltage selector's cover before connecting the device to AC Power. Change the label that points
out the correct voltage in use.

6. DSP CONTROL & REMOTE CONTROL
A powerful DSP manages all the functions of the speakers. Each system can store on board 16 preset that can be recalled pushing
the PRESET button. Once the preset will appear on the lower line of the display it will become automatically available after few
seconds. If you desire to set a preset as “default” you just need, once selected it, to keep pressed for five seconds the PRESET
button. After that, this preset will automatically be recall each time you will switch on your module. It is also possible to remote each
module by an RS485 serial port. In order to remote your system, you need to set each module on a different address, so that, in your
chain, no one module will have the same address. Two rotary encoders allow you to set the desired address number that will appear
on the top line of the display. Using the remote control software it is possible to mute each system, select a desired preset loaded onboard or download a new preset pack.
For remote control operation please refer to REMOTE CONTROL AND SOFTWARE MANUAL in the next pages.
6.1 Cloner function & preset systems
It is possible to clone the entire presets bank from Speaker to Speaker without any PC connected. We will call
SpeakerA the one with the presets bank that you want clone, and SpeakerB the one that will be upgraded.
Set the SpeakerA on ID 99, will appear CLONER on the display
Keep SpeakerB on any ID number between 10 and 90.
Turn off both the speakers and connect by a RJ45 8 poles cable
Turn on the SpeakerB and after the SpeakerA
SpeakerA will start to clone, on the display will appear a cont down (00/15, 01/15, etc)
Wait till 20 seconds after 15/15
Change the ID of the SpeakerA to any other ID and turn off both Speakers
Turning on the SpeakerA check that it is on mode 16x16 and NOT 4x4.
If SpeakerA is in mode 4x4, just turn off the speaker and keep press the Preset button during the turning on
The preset are cloned to the SpeakerB.

4 . Single module control
This frame describes the state of all the loudspeakers on the net.
The colour of the little rectangles into this frame represents the
status of the loudspeakers. Each loudspeaker has three rectangles.
Here there is the meaning of the rectangle's colour.
Click once on the ID module
Two rectangles on top:
that you want control.
Both rectangles grey: the loudspeaker is not present on the net.
Temperature rectangle red: one module inside that loudspeaker is
over-temperature.
Temperature rectangle green: all modules inside that loudspeaker
have a good temperature.
Protection/Fail rectangle red: at least one module inside that
loudspeaker is in protection.
Temperature rectangle green: all modules inside that loudspeaker
are working properly.
Temperature rectangle black: if this rectangle is black it means that
the loudspeaker is not responding.
The main causes of this malfunction are
loss of power supply and loss of serial
connection between the hub and the
loudspeaker. Check the hardware. If
this rectangle is black will be black also
the Protection/Fail.
Protection/Fail rectangle black: see
Module status panel
Preset slots on the

The remaining rectangle: Is related to
the mute function; if red, the related
loudspeaker is in "mute" status.
