As the first product developed by KV2 and continually refined over the last decade, the ES Series has become renown for its unique and versatile capabilities. Its performance has amazed audio professionals around the globe, staggered by the output and clarity of such a compact yet powerful system. The ES Series is an embodiment of KV2 Audio’s design philosophies.
A truly scalable system, it is compact and modular with all the electronics and amplification housed in separate, portable units - the EPAK2500 and 2500R. Placing the active electronics package outboard results in a lighter, easier to handle system with much more flexibility. Its compact size reduces transport costs and either ground stacked or flown it is quick and easy to setup cutting labour costs dramatically. The EPAK2500/R control unit incorporates four task specific amplifiers. Electronic crossover filters, time alignment, equalization, system protection, and level controls are all done onboard utilizing industry leading 20MHz digital conversion where required.
The ES1.0 Mid/High speaker and the EPAK2500/R make up the core of the amazing sounding, incredibly dynamic ES system. Each ES1.0 requires an EPAK2500/R to power it and the three way cabinet includes a12”horn loaded mid bass driver,6”horn loaded mid speaker, and1.75 inchTitanium compression driver. You can rotate the ES 1.0 horn assembly in order to run the system in a vertical or horizontal configuration, and couple two ES1.0 cabinets together horizontally to create a very powerful, long throw solution.
As well as driving the three way ES 1.0 cabinet, a fourth amplifier channel in the EPAK2500/R control unit is dedicated to powering a choice of ES series subwoofers. The ES1.5 is a lightweight single 15” enclosure, the ES1.8 a horn reflex, single 18” subwoofer and the ES2.5 /2.6 adouble 15”, twin asymmetrical design, available in either four Ohm (ES2.5) or eight Ohm (ES2.6) versions.
Simple to set up and use The ES System has been designed for plug and play operation. It would take a dozen or more outboard components, sophisticated measuring equipment and a degree in acoustic engineering to achieve the optimization we’ve built into the EPAK 2500/R. A multi position switch allows you to select from various subwoofer combinations, you decide which plug and play bass modules you want to use, select and go.
The meticulously designed control electronics inside the EPAK2500/R constantly monitor and preserve the relationship between each amplifier and component, delivering exactly the right amount and type of power throughout the system. When you’re able to perfectly match an amplifier with a transducer you start to unlock incredible performance that is impossible to achieve with passive systems. Total system reliability increases dramatically as does sound quality. With this kind of precision and efficiency built in, you’ll be amazed at the quality, depth, level and resolution produced by an ES system.
