K Series Features Tour
Rugged ConstructionUnlike typical molded loudspeakers, K Series fullrange models are made with ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) which is harder and more rigid than most traditional plastics. Used for high-pressure or high-impact applications, ABS can withstand greater temperature extremes, resist impact and stay rigid against high pressure fluctuations far better than polypropylene, polystyrene, or polyurethane. ABS is used in golf club heads, very high pressure plumbing, car body parts, helmets and other products requiring robust physical performance.
Not only is ABS tough, it also delivers acoustic benefits. An ABS enclosure will vibrate less with low frequency audio energy resulting in more and tighter bass. The stability of ABS also makes it ideal for a molded enclosure that is going to be suspended for installation applications.
Additionally, all K Series speakers are designed to withstand a rigorous series of drop tests and other abuses that make the wear and tear typically encountered by years of real-world use seem tame. Solid cast aluminum handles and an 18 gauge steel grille round out the K Series road-ready design.
