ESM12 - The Ultimate Passive Monitor

The ESM12 is a full-range low profile 2-way, passive monitoring solution with a 12" trans-coil neo woofer and the same 3" NVPD large format compression driver found in our flagship VHD products. The ESM12 also features our revolutionary passive delay line, which dramatically reduces feedback. Housed in a professional Baltic Birch cabinet, with a protective Polymer coating and heavy-duty grill, the ESM12 can be utilized for FOH applications with the inclusion of a pole mount. Truly one of the most impressive monitoring solutions on the market today, the ESM12 is available in left and right configurations.
