When deploying a cardioid subwoofer array, at least one KS118 needs to be facing towards the audience, and one facing away from the audience towards the stage. Consult the KS Series User Manual for deployment options that meet your space and cardioid requirements, but be sure to set the KS118 facing towards the audience to “FRONT” and the one facing away from the audience to “REAR.”
