Loudspeaker Company KK labs to Make Musikmesse Debut

United States
Huntington Beach, CA - March 19, 2010 - KK labs, a new loudspeaker manufacturing company established by Keith R. Klawitter, the founder of KRK Systems Inc., and Timothy Thornton, formerly VP with Apogee Sound, will make its official public debut at Musikmesse Frankfurt (Hall 8.0, E26). Headquartered in Southern California, KK labs designs and manufactures high-end audio products for the recording studio and professional live sound markets.

Musikmesse will mark the first appearance of the KK labs Raptor-12, a two-way, DSP-powered premium utility speaker for sound reinforcement applications. Powered by 1,000 watts of Class D amplification, the Raptor-12 features a single 12-inch neodymium woofer, rated at 700 watts, with a 1.4-inch exit compression driver on an 80-degree x 70-degree horn that offers smooth, even coverage.

Also on display for the first time anywhere will be the TAZ15c stage monitor. The two-way coaxial, DSP/Ethernet-controlled powered stage monitor features a 15-inch woofer fabricated using proprietary cone material with a 1.4-inch high frequency composite diaphragm.

KK labs launched at the beginning of 2010 with the DS8, a DSP/Ethernet-controlled, self-powered, 8-inch, two-way studio monitor. Founder and company president Keith Klawitter informally unveiled the DS8 at the NAMM Show in late January.

Musikmesse Frankfurt is being held March 24 - 27, 2010 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Klawitter has over 30 years in the pro audio industry, having started out in 1977 as a recording, technical, and mixing engineer. He quickly became acknowledged as an industry leader in the field of studio monitor products, and KRK Systems was frequently nominated for the prestigious annual TEC Award. Thornton, also with 30 years experience, has been active in the live sound and House of Worship markets for all of his adult life, and uniquely identifies with the needs and functional aspects of live sound in worship facilities.
