The ESM312 is the latest – and most powerful – addition to KV2 Audio’s range of high-quality stage monitors. Aimed at large scale stage monitoring applications, the ESM312 is a very high output full-range low profile 3-way, passive monitoring solution. The new monitor comes with two bass reflex-loaded 12” neodymium woofers, a single horn loaded 6” mid-range woofer and a 1” compression driver, all packed into a compact, elegant Baltic birch cabinet.

KV2’s most powerful stage monitor yet, the ESM312 delivers 133dB sustained output, and 136dB peak with very high dynamic range. A 1” compression driver with a complex geometry phase plug and a neodymium magnetic structure ensures outstanding output for its size,  low distortion and extended frequency response. The ESM312 also features dual 12” woofers with sophisticated voice coil technology and neodymium magnetic motor structure for increased force, lower distortion and increased frequency response linearity. Vocal reproduction is especially well-executed by this design.

The compact, wedge-shaped design incorporates rear-mounted flip-out stands to allow for 35 or 45-degree angles as required. A specially designed acoustic fabric covering inside the grille protects against liquid spillage whilst a wear-resistant polymer coating is designed to withstand the rigours of touring and repeated stage use. An ergonomically designed recessed handle on each side panel facilitates handling and transport.

The ideal partner for KV2’s flagship VHD5 system, the ESM312 can handle the largest stages with ease.
