NEW YORK—Loudspeaker manufacturer L-Acoustics will host two days of exclusive presentations and demos at New World Stages in Manhattan’s Theatre District on January 18 and 19. In particular, L-Acoustics will be showcasing its new SB18 subwoofer extension enclosure and much-anticipated Kara modular line source system, A/B-ing it in comparative listening tests against its venerable predecessor, dV-DOSC speaker system. In addition to putting Kara and SB18 through their paces, L-Acoustics will be demonstrating its smaller yet equally impressive KIVA System, as well as the company’s 8XT, 12XT and 115XT HiQ coaxial products.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for our rental network and system integrators on the East Coast to personally experience the significant improvement that Kara represents over dV-DOSC,” said L-Acoustics Regional Sales Manager Paul Shiner. “To best accommodate our customers’ busy schedules, we’re offering two daily sessions—one starting at 9:00 a.m. and the other at 2:00 p.m.—on both Tuesday and Wednesday.”

L-Acoustics has also announced two similar international events. The first will be conducted by SSE Audio Group at its shop in Redditch, England, on Wednesday, January 26 from noon to 4:00 p.m., while the second will be held at L-Acoustics’ headquarters in Marcoussis, France, on Tuesday, March 8. All demo events will be conducted in English.

The number of participants for each session is limited, those wishing to attend should RSVP at www.l-acoustics.com/demo-kara-sb18 and complete the online form as soon as possible to confirm availability.

New World Stages is located at 340 West 50th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenue at World Wide Plaza. For more info on the venue, call (646) 871-1730 or visit www.newworldstages.com.
