Since this prototype KF740 Zero Degree Adapter was created in early March 2012, it has circled the globe twice.That’s how much KF740 owners want to get their hands on these beauties. For about $600 per module, KF740 owners can transform their rigs to be able to create larger arrays with flat-fronted modules at the top. That means bigger rigs for bigger gigs. Official, final products are now in stock.
Produced in the USA, the prototypes went immediately to Frankfurt, Germany for use in our 16-module array hung at Prolight + Sound. From there, they flew to Australia, where Production Audio Services used them at Christian festivals Easterfest and PlanetShakers.
From Australia, they flew to Dallas, TX, USA, where Tim and Chad “It’s a Tank” Cain from Gemini LSV used them at EdgeFest (shown), the massive alternative rock festival that’s the unofficial start of the summer music season.
Tired yet? From Dallas, the prototype adapters flew to Mumbai, India. For the Palm India show, EAW’s new distribution partner VMT and the always able Mega Sound used the adapters to create an array at the professional products shoot out. Naturally, the KF740 rig won hands down.
From India, it was on to Las Vegas for EAW’s InfoComm 2012 demo room, producted in partnership with H. A. S. Productions. There, the prototypes met up with their official, final product siblings that are now available for purchase.
At this moment, the original prototype adapters are on a truck on their way from Las Vegas to Whitinsville, where they’ll become yet another part of EAW lore.
