For years people have been asking KV2 to build foldback monitors that had the same sound characteristics as EX and ESD ranges. Many foldback wedges utilize on board active technology or bi-amping and external processing to achieve optimum output. At KV2 we opted for a full passive design utilizing our revolutionary onboard analog delay for perfect phase coherency. This feature does away with the need for expensive external processing and bi-amping, halving amplifier costs.
We also knew they had to be durable to handle the rigors of touring and the on stage environment of heavy feet and various liquids. A sturdy mesh grill was engineered for the range and a special acoustically neutral liquid resistant cover placed over the horn along with specially coated water resistant woofers. The resulting ESM range of monitors makes performing a pleasure delivering clarity and detail at high SPL from a robust and durable package.
