Kiva II goes Blond in SA

South Africa:

Blond Productions is the first company in South Africa to invest in an L-Acoustics Kiva II system. The purchase was confirmed by the manufacturer's distributor, DWR Distribution.

'It’s something new and something different,' said Christiaan Ballot, owner of Blond Productions. 'We started searching the market for a complete line array system, looked at what the various brands had to offer and, for us, it came down to what would service our needs best.'

The rental company's needs were for a solution that could be used to reinforce large venues with capacities of up to 2,000, while also providing the ability to be split into smaller, modular systems for smaller events. Having determined that Kiva II could be scaled up and down in this fashion, Blond Productions purchased 12 Kiva II cabinets, four SB15m and four SB18m subs, five LA4X amplified controllers and eight X8 monitors. This combination can be deployed as either a complete line array or as two or three smaller PA systems.

'Another deciding factor was the regular studio work we do,' added Riaan Rademan, head of audio at Blond. 'Because Kiva II is small and compact, it can be hung in the rig and out of sight to supply audio to the studio audience. It is a lightweight box with a punch. Easy to work with, it’s pretty much plug-and-play.'

In addition to supplying the systems, DWR’s Richard Smith also delivered training for the Blond Productions team.
