Network Charter

The Rental Network working principles are based on three principles as defined in the Network Charter :

  • Ensure worldwide availability with systems inventory thresholds for various rental segments
  • Offer a universal standard to ensure performance and compatibility of systems for cooperation
  • Ensure a human standard of excellence and safety through an education program designed for technicians

Inventory Threshold

L-Acoustics offers truly innovative sound systems with the highest brand acceptance. Choosing and dimensioning a main PA system is a strategic decision, and establishing a system inventory threshold is a key factor:

  • In positioning the company and gaining visibility in the rental market place
  • In generating dry rental requests from others with an attractive inventory level
  • In delivering performance (Coverage, Headroom, SPL, Directivity control, etc...) for special productions

The L-Acoustics authorized representative can analyze your rental activity with you to determine the right system inventory to optimize the return on investment.

Performance, Simplicity, Efficiency

Establishing a standard helps in delivering:

  • Predictable performance and system behavior with its optimized components
  • Simplified cross rental, easy system interfacing and fast pooling of systems
  • Maximum efficiency and safety in the field with standard electronics, cables, accessories

The "KX" system standard is L-Acoustics’ quality benchmark. It ensures that a system will perform to specifications in a predictable
manner, with the maximum protection and plug and play capability for cross-rentals. It includes the Kara (II), K3, K2, K1 enclosures, the KS28 associated subwoofer, the P1 processor, and the LA-RAK II (AVB) integrated electronics rack and system accessories.

The "K" standard is the L-Acoustics’ quality benchmark until April 1st, 2019. It ensures that a system will perform to specifications in a predictable manner, with the maximum protection and plug and play capability for cross-rentals. It includes the Kara (II), K2, K1 enclosures, the SB28 associated subwoofer, and the LA-RAK integrated electronics rack and system accessories.

The "H" standard includes the A Series, the Kiva II enclosures, and the K series not K(X) compliant.
