KV2 Audio has announced the introduction of the new ESM312, the latest addition to its range of stage monitors, equipped with a three-way, high-output design that’s aimed at serving the needs of large-scale monitoring applications.
The ESM312 is a passive syste with two bass reflex-loaded 12-inch neodymium woofers, a single horn-loaded 6-inch mid-range woofer and a 1-inch compression driver in a compact Baltic birch cabinet. It is stated to deliver 133 dB sustained output and 136dB peak with high dynamic range.
The compression driver has a complex geometry phase plug and a neodymium magnetic structure to help produce exceptional output for its size along with low distortion and extended frequency response. The woofers sport a sophisticated voice coil design and neodymium magnetic motor structure for increased force, lower distortion and increased frequency response linearity.
The wedge-shaped cabinet incorporates rear-mounted flip-out stands to accommodate 35- or 45-degree angles as required. A specially designed acoustic fabric covering inside the grille is intended to protect against liquid spillage while 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.
