KV2 step in for Last Tango23 February 2016
KV2’s EX range products have been specified for BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing superstars Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace’s final ever theatre tour – Last Tango.
The decision was made based on the results of Orbital Sound using the same products for the duo’s 2015 tour Dance ‘til Dawn.
KV2’s Truly Active range of EX loudspeakers feature amplifier topologies that are said to have been designed to deliver power through a unique LF amplifier for perfect control of the woofer, working alongside an HD amplifier implementing a discreet, classic class AB push-pull topology and an intermodulation distortion (IMD) restricting output transformer.
The main FOH system for the tour is based around the two-way EX 12 12” loudspeaker using what KV2 describes as a “revolutionary” large format NVPD 3” compression driver – the same component used in KV2’s flagship VHD range of large format True Point Source system.
Low frequency reinforcement was also handled by subwoofers from the EX range. Several EX 2.2 1000W 2×12” bass modules and EX 2.5mkII 1600W 2×15” subwoofers were deployed as well as additional EX 6 2-way 6” and EX 10 2-way 10” loudspeakers for delay and in-fill duties.
This production represents the third successful show for Orbital Sound using KV2 products, which the speaker maker hopes will continue to see KV2’s profile sit highly within the theatre industry – both touring and fixed install – in the UK and worldwide.
