ISE 2017: EM Acoustics introduces ESP Series speakers
The range, which comprises three models, is designed for a variety of applications from small FOH duties to speech reinforcement, front fill or compact stage monitoring.
EM Acoustics used the ISE Show in Amsterdam last week as the launch forum for its new ESP Series of compact, self-powered, multipurpose loudspeakers for live applications.
The range currently comprises three models: the ESP-8 and ESP-12 loudspeakers, both with coaxial designs for true point-source performance, and the ESP-15S compact reflex subwoofer.
They are designed for a variety of applications from small FOH duties to speech reinforcement, front fill or compact stage monitoring.
The ESP-8 is an 8in, two-way loudspeaker whose coaxial drive unit arrangement provides a uniform 100-degree conical dispersion pattern with smooth off-axis response and none of the parallax effects that would be generated with separate HF and LF drive units.
The ESP-12 is the bigger brother of the ESP-8, sporting the same coaxial design in a compact, lightweight, multi-angle enclosure. Both enclosures utilise onboard class D amplification technology, sophisticated DSP processing and a universal power supply. Four built-in presets are available for different applications: stand-alone use; flat response; use with a subwoofer; and stage monitoring. A number of rigging options are also available for swift and easy setup.
Lastly is the ESP-15S compact reflex subwoofer that extends the low frequency performance of the ESP Series down to 45Hz. Integral handles, a polemount fixing and optional castors make the ESP-15 easy to deploy in a wide range of applications, whilst four presets, each with a different low pass filter frequency, enable the user to modify the characteristics of the subwoofer to suit their taste.
