Product Overview

8" Coaxial Moving Audio Head w/Onboard Camera Monitoring

The KW8 Owl is a self-powered, moving audio head including a 8”coaxial transducer and a newly built-in camera to allow users to accurately focus their directivity of sound. This feature bridges the gap between AV in a revolutionary concept. 

The Owl provides up to 500W of power, 120dB of SPL and a frequency range from 60Hz to 19Khz.

It is a perfect solution for a range of applications including live ‘on stage’ monitoring, theme park installations, airports, train stations, CCTV home security, DJ effects and theatre installations, however, the flexibility of the Owl will offer an almost limitless number of solutions and in some cases reduce the amount of speakers required for one installation. 

The Owl is part of the K-array concert series but it was designed to be a completely different solution for the most ambitious projects. 

The dedicated software gives you the ability to control the movement with sound and video together allowing you to create scenes and setups via DMX, audio balanced signal and the SDI camera on board.
