KV2 Audio announced that it will be unveiling the newest member of the ESR Series, the slimline ESR106 loudspeaker and its dedicated ESR2600D amplifier based on the company’s proprietary SLA technology, among four new product debuts at the upcoming ISE 2023 show at the Fira Barcelona Gran Via (booth 7G550) starting on January 31.
ESR Series loudspeakers are designed for applications that include theatres, houses of worship, cultural/performance centers and concert halls where they are likely to be used vertically. When mounted horizontally, ESR Series loudspeakers provide coverage over a tiered seating area for stadium and grandstand type applications. (Unlike its siblings, the new ESR106 can only be used vertically.)
The new ESR106 is a three-way system deploying a column array of multiple 6-inch woofers; specifically, it’s outfitted with 8 x 6-inch woofers, 2 x 6-inch mid bass woofers and a single 1-inch high frequency driver mounted on a wide dispersion horn. It’s designed to deliver controlled coverage at low and mid frequencies to reduce indoor reflections. The low-profile cabinet incorporates multiple fixing points for external brackets and flyware.
The accompanying ESR2600D is a two-channel (stereo) three-way amplifier with signal processing in a 4RU package. It also provides control and crossover functions for adding external subwoofer cabinets if required, utilizing external amplifiers. In stereo mode, The ESR2600D powers two ESR106s and is configurable via the front panel or remotely using the KV2 Control & Diagnostics Tool.
