L-Acoustics K1/K2 System Rocks Canada’s Juno Awards

E-mail Print PDF
Solotech flew a full K1/K2 system for the 2016 Juno Awards.CALGARY, Alberta, Canada -  The Juno Awards, Canada’s most prestigious music awards show, recently aired live on CTV from Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome and featured performances by many of the country’s leading music artists, including Alessia Cara, Bryan Adams, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Dean Brody, Jann Arden, Shawn Mendes, The Tenors and The Weeknd. But it was the performance by an L-Acoustics K1/K2 sound system—provided by another Canadian original, Solotech—that seamlessly kept the music sonically clear all night long. The system proved to be an ideal solution for Scotiabank Saddledome, which is a beautiful sounding hall with a unique hyperbolic paraboloid-shaped roof offering fantastic interior sightlines. That same design poses challenges in terms of weight limitations. However, the weight-to-power ratio of L-Acoustics’ K2 allowed the Junos to enjoy powerful system performance without concern for any weight-loading issues.
