With the advent of the new 3D digital projection formats, audio systems in movie theatres need to evolve so that the audience can be immersed in the sound field and enjoy a true 3D sound experience.

KCS is highly implicated in the development of such sound systems aimed for Dolby Atmos, Auro 11.1 or similar.


Three-way screen channel cinema sound system enhanced for large capacity theaters

KCS S-8801 and S-8802 three-way speaker systems has been enhanced for the screen channel in large theaters ; its 47 cm depth makes it especially suitable where there is a space limitation behind the projection screen. The KCS S-8801 (biamplified) speaker system includes a passive crossover to cut frequencies between mid and high frequencies. Between mid and low frequencies, this system is designed to operate with an external active crossover with cut frequency at 400 Hz. The KCS S-8802 (triamplified) speaker system is designed to operate with external active crossovers to cut frequencies both between the low and mid ranges (400 Hz) and between the mid and high ranges (1.3 kHz).

The high dynamics demanded to screen channel speaker systems by current soundtracks requires the use of threeway systems in order to ensure high SPL levels in the auditorium while keeping distortion at inaudible levels. Each of the three ways is controlled by transducers which are specifically designed to operate in the required frequency range and ensure a precise and distortion-free reproduction. This system features a bass cabinet with direct radiation technology fitted with two 15” Ø speakers. Voice spectrum in this three-way design is reproduced by two 6.5” cone speakers and 90º x 30º constant dispersion horns, improving intelligibility of dialogues as compared to conventional two-way speaker systems. The High-Frequency section has been enhanced with high SPL and low distortion compression driver with a 3” Ø Titanium and a newly designed 90º x 40º constant directivity horn giving the most natural sound experience..
