K-array’s KGEAR introduces two new GF ultra-compact column speakers at ISE

KGEAR by K-array has added to its GF family of ultra-compact column loudspeakers with the addition of two new models: GF42 (4 x 2") and GF162 (16 x 2").

Also highlighted at ISE 2023 is the GM44 analogue audio matrix for straightforward multi-zone audio distribution.

Both models feature the same 2-inch drivers deployed in the existing GF22 and GF82, plus the same robust build quality and sound characteristics, while offering different throw and dispersion angle options.

Taking the versatility of the range a step further, KGEAR has announced the release of active versions of three models (GF22A, GF42A, GF82A) featuring a built-in amplifier with auto ON-OFF and the possibility to drive a passive speaker, plus 70/100V versions (GF42T, GF82T, GF162T) for large scale loudspeaker deployments.

The whole line (including GF82 and GF22) comes with a totally re-designed bracket system that offers even greater flexibility of installation and a cleaner look, and thanks to the new IP connector sealing cap accessories, all GF loudspeakers can now be used for outdoor applications.

Suitable for any small to mid-sized venue in applications ranging from hospitality to corporate, retail, houses of worship and more, there is now a GF solution for every situation.

Meanwhile, GM44L is a four-zone analogue audio matrix that features four stereo line inputs with gain control, four stereo line outputs with treble and bass adjustment, four zone input selectors and one auxiliary input that can be independently assigned to each zone output and mixed to the selected input channel.

A dry contact input allows users to mute all inputs except the priority auxiliary input for emergency purposes. Several GM44L units can be linked together to increase the number of outputs thanks to five link outputs corresponding to each one of the inputs (including Aux-In).

All signal connections feature 3.5mm stereo jacks to easily interact with the GA201 amplifier.

GM44L is the ideal preamp partner for the GA201 amplifier as one GM44L and up to four GA201s can be mounted in just 1RU thanks to our G-RACKMINI2 accessory, making it a suitable solution for multi-zone sound distribution and public address solution for bars and restaurants, hospitality, corporate, conference and residential applications.
