Saville Audio Visual increase reliance on KV2
Over the past year Audio Visual specialists Saville Audio Visual have continued to expand the hire inventories of several of their branches with KV2 Audio products.
Having initially invested in KV2 Audio back in 2004, Saville AV have come to rely on the outstanding performance of KV2 products within the AV field. With heavy emphasis on aesthetics, detail and clarity, KV2 products match up to Saville AV’s requirements for sonic excellence at a reasonable price point.
The most recent investment came from the North East office who, following a very successful year were in a position to boost their existing KV2 inventory. Having run KV2’s powered EX 10’s for the last 8 years, the team were looking for the same high quality output, but from a lighter cabinet due to a high-profile regular contract which requires the units to be mounted from the roof.
The solution was found with KV2 Audio’s passive ESD10. Boasting the same high quality 10” driver and 1” compression driver the ESD10 offers the same tonality and exceptional performance without the weight of an on-board amplifier. KV2 Audio’s ESD top boxes all feature revolutionary passive delay and crossover networks that ensure balanced and phase coherent output whether used with KV2’s optimized ESP amplifiers or run on 3rd party amplification.
Saville North East now boast a KV2 stock comprising of 6 x active 2-way 6” EX6’s, 8 x active 2-way 10” EX10’s and one of KV2 Audio’s legendary ES Systems along with the recently purchased 6 x ESD10’s. Saville’s Michael Edwards comments “Adding these ESD10’s to our hire stock means that we can offer a KV2 solution for all applications, including an increasing number of live bands alongside our regular corporate projects”
Chris Daily added, “The plug and play nature of KV2 products is highly valued by us, as is the pleasing aesthetic appearance and compact nature of the cabinets. Since initially investing in KV2 we have obtained fantastic return on our investment.” Saville’s investment in the North East follows further investment by the Hull office last year. Already well-stocked with KV2 Audio, Hull added to their existing ES System and 14 EX10’s with a further 12 EX10’s.
Steve Ryan and Mark Green explained that KV2 is at the heart of the audio spec for their annual professional sports tour client. For the current tour they are running their complete stock of 26 EX10’s for on stage monitoring, play-back and distributed delays throughout the wide variety of venues visited by the tour.
Speaking of their continued investment Steve Ryan commented “As a long term user of KV2 audio equipment our extensive rental stock of both ES and EX series product continues to provide the excellent audio quality we require for our clients conferences and live events from the smallest meeting room to the largest arena”
With further demonstrations already arranged throughout the Saville network, Technical Support Manager Andrew Ellerby said of the continued reliance on KV2 products “We needed to replace a number of speaker systems to cater for the expanding smaller conference market. Having a number of larger KV2 systems on stock, which have performed well over the years, we tested the ESD products and found they performed very well in tests. The sonic performance of the cabinet combined with its quality of construction and competitive price point made it a winning combination”.
