• KV2 Audio unveils new slimline addition to ESR family

    At ISE2023, KV2 Audio launched an addition to the ESR series with the ESR106 and its dedicated ESR2600D amplifier.

    The ESR Series was developed for a particular niche in the market requiring an all-in-one box to provide reproduction over a wide area. Typical applications include theatres, houses of worship, cultural/performance centres 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 or grandstand type applications.

    Like its siblings, ESR212, ESR215MkII and ESR215S, the new slimline ESR106 is an active-driven 3-way system. It deploys a column array of multiple 6-inch woofers for unparalleled high quality vocal and music reproduction in challenging acoustical spaces and ambient environments, says KV2. Utilising 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, the ESR106 is reportedly constructed to represent one large point source, with each part of the system positioned so that it is proportional in size to the wavelength it produces, thus the radiated power of each band remains consistent and balanced throughout the system’s overall frequency range. The discreet, low-profile cabinet incorporates multiple fixing points for external brackets and flyware. However, unlike its siblings, ESR106 may only be used vertically.

    ESR106 is controlled and driven by its dedicated – and also brand new – ESR2600D amplifier, a two channel (stereo) three-way, active control and amplification system housing all signal processing and amplification in a 4RU module, as well as providing control and crossover functions for adding external subwoofer cabinets if required, utilizing external amplifiers. In stereo mode, ESR2600D powers two ESR106s and is configurable via the front panel or remotely using the KV2 Control & Diagnostics Tool.
