ESD Cube from KV2 Audio makes UK debut at PLASA Focus, Leeds
UK – Fresh from its international launch at the recent PL+S 2019 in Frankfurt, KV2 Audio is unveilling the most compact loudspeaker yet in the KV2 Audio range at PLASA Focus, Leeds. The ESD Cube ultra-compact passive 5-inch loudspeaker utilises a unique trans-coil design for superior vocal reproduction, extended high frequency response, increased dynamic range and the lowest distortion of any comparable loudspeaker in its class. The Cube will be demonstrated alongside other KV2 products in KV2’s exclusive demo room at the show; indeed, KV2 is the only manufacturer to have such a facility at PLASA Focus.
KV2’s exclusive trans-coil AIC (Active Impedance Control) technology, already deployed in a number of KV2 products, has been taken to a whole new level in the Cube. The result is perfect phase response across the extended frequency range, meaning that the vocal imaging and instrument placement of the Cube system is nothing short of stunning.
According to KV2’s founder and chief engineer, George Krampera, the ESD Cube’s unique design makes it stand out from the crowd sonically, even though physically it is designed to blend seamlessly into its environment. “What sets the Cube apart from similar offerings by other manufacturers is the unique trans-coil technology incorporated into its 5-inch twin cone speaker,” he states. “We had already seen excellent results using our AIC technology in other, larger systems, and I was determined to develop it still further for the Cube. The results have been beyond even our own expectations with perfect phase response, increased dynamic range and the lowest distortion of any speaker in its class.”
The ESD Cube may be used as a standalone system with up to eight Cubes powered by a single ESP1000 amplifier or with the ESD1.10 single 10-inch passive subwoofer for applications requiring more low end reinforcement. One ESP1000 amplifier will run up to four Cubes and two ESD1.10s. A simple, proprietary flying bracket completes the system for a low profile look and easy installation.
Housed in a durable and stylish aluminium enclosure that is available in any RAL colour, the ESD Cube’s compact dimensions make it ideal for applications requiring discreet, high quality peripheral and/or distributed sound reinforcement including bars, hotels, houses of worship, museums, tourist attractions, and corporate venues.
KV2 Audio Europe managing director, Jonathan Reece, is thrilled to be presenting the Cube at PLASA Focus. “The Cube is our small solution to many of today’s big audio problems,” he says. “For those looking to fill an area with high quality sound without seeing the speakers, the Cube is an ideal fit. Anyone with a venue where the priority is high quality audio in an ultra-compact, discreet format with an accent on design should be talking to us, or better still, coming to visit us at PLASA Focus to have a listen. We’re fortunate to be the only manufacturer at the show to have a demo facility, so please come along and take advantage of it!”
