Phoenix, February 26, 2014: Phoenix' Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) is home to nearly 15,000 instruments and objects from all over the world, providing a unique museum experience for guests of all ages. The museum features an exquisite, 300-seat music theater that features performances from a diverse range of artists including well known, nationally touring musical acts as well as traditional and eclectic acts from every corner of the globe. Designed and constructed as an intimate, world-class concert hall offering comfortable seating and state of the art acoustics, the theater hosted 193 concerts last year and recently was the first venue in Arizona to install the new K-array Anakonda speaker solution from Sennheiser.

The K-array Anakonda speaker system was installed directly across the edge of the stage as a front fill solution, providing greater definition and sonic clarity to the first several rows. The new installation helps the theater deliver an unparalleled listening experience for all its patrons no matter where they are seated, ensuring even sound dispersion and intelligibility.

"Our former front fills were point source, mounted just below the stage," comments Ted Greenbaum, music theater manager. "There wasn't even coverage and these were in the more expensive seats. So when Jerry Delgado of Sennheiser brought the Anakonda in for us to test, it was phenomenal." "Our main PA system is built into the shell and each side is pretty far away from the center of the audience and in the first couple of rows intelligibility and imaging is an issue," explains Jim Zick, technical manager for the Theater. "When Sennheiser brought in the Anakonda, which sounded great and was aesthetically attractive, I thought it would be a perfect solution to set this up right across the front of the stage."

Six Anakonda loudspeakers were daisy chained at the edge of the stage and powered by a single K-array KA40 amplifier complete with DSP control. The system made its debut one evening as renowned country singer/songwriter Suzy Bogguss sang for 300 enthralled fans. "It was phenomenal," Greenbaum recalls. "After that night, we got several emails from audience members saying it was the best sound they ever heard. Before, the front fill was lacking and the Anakonda really came through as a great solution it was the final piece to the puzzle."

Anakonda: Astounding intelligibility, flexibility:

In addition to theaters, the Anakonda is a perfect solution for a range of indoor or outdoors installations. Since each speaker element is bendable, the Anakonda can be wrapped around poles, columns, or mounted to curved or otherwise uneven surfaces. Speakers are available in 6' lengths, and up to 16 combined elements can be linked and powered from a KA40 amplifier using the Anakonda's integrated NL4 connectors. The speaker's dedicated presets support a variety of configurations, including both standalone and combination use with K-array KMT Series subwoofers.

The Anakonda, which is priced at $859.95, is available exclusively in the U.S. through authorized Sennheiser dealers.
