The ESM312 is the latest – and most powerful – addition to KV2 Audio’s range of high-quality stage monitors. Aimed at large scale stage monitoring applications, the ESM312 is a very high output full-range low profile 3-way, passive monitoring solution. With two bass reflex-loaded 12” neodymium woofers, a single horn loaded 6” mid-range woofer and a 1” compression driver in a compact, elegant Baltic birch cabinet, the ESM312 is truly one of the most impressive monitoring solutions on the market today.
KV2’s most powerful stage monitor yet, the passive ESM312 requires just one amplifier channel, but delivers 133dB sustained output, and 136dB peak with very high dynamic range. A state-of-the-art 1” compression driver with a complex geometry phase plug and a neodymium magnetic structure ensures exceptionally low distortion and extended frequency response. The ESM312 also features dual 12” woofers with sophisticated voice coil technology and neodymium magnetic motor structures for a solid impressive bass performance down to 40Hz. It’s ability to reproduce vocals is quite simply unmatched by anything else available on the market, whilst its cardioid characteristics, when used in pairs, give the artist a true ‘personal monitoring’ experience whilst preventing sound spillage across the stage.
The compact, wedge-shaped design incorporates rear-mounted flip-out stands to allow for 35 or 45-degree angles as required. A specially designed acoustic fabric covering inside the grille protects against liquid spillage whilst a wear-resistant polymer coating is designed to withstand the rigours of touring and repeated stage use. An ergonomically designed recessed handle on each side panel facilitates handling and transport.
