UK - A KV2 Audio system has been installed at Egg LDN, a multi-purpose venue in the heart of London’s Kings Cross.
Firmly established in the London nightlife scene, Egg LDN is now in its 15th year and has secured its place as a successful corporate venue, having hosted different private functions from intimate product launches, networking events and board meetings to themed parties for a range of notable clients.
The management and technical team at with venueEgg wanted to mark the 15th birthday with developments and upgrades, including the audio systems throughout the venue.
Having become increasingly aware of KV2’s growing reputation within the dance-industry, including high-profile installations throughout Ibiza, Ben Short contacted KV2 Audio to discuss how they might go about improving the audio system in the venue.
The initial phase was to look at Egg LDN’s ‘Middle Floor’ and the opportunity to design one of the best sounding electronic music system’s for a room of its size was seized upon.
Showcasing some of electronic music’s most exciting DJ’s and producers from around the globe, the system needed to comfortably deliver each nuance of every mix consistently throughout the space, and of course, at SPL’s demanded by a passionate Dance music audience.
KV2 Audio’s commitment to reproducing the original source in its exact form with the lowest possible distortion figures allow Egg to hit impressive SPL levels without the aural fatigue associated with alternative Club Systems, too often tolerated in similar venues.
A system comprising of four SL 4.12 mid/hi’s cover the space easily and evenly thanks to the wide 110° horizontal dispersion. The SL 4.12 runs as a three-way active mid/hi in conjunction with its dedicated stereo SL 3000 amplification and control unit.
For the critical sub bass frequencies a pair of VHD 4.21 subwoofer systems were deployed.
The VHD 4.21 system comprises of one active double 21” subwoofer that powers an additional one passive double 21” subwoofer – delivering an astonishing 14,000W of peak power from a standard 16A feed.
A pair of VHD 4.21 systems gives Egg’s Middle Floor substantial low-end, whilst remaining musical, fast and more dynamic than traditional large format subwoofers.
To further enhance the subwoofer offerings, just a single pair of ES 2.6 2x15” subwoofers were also deployed to fill out the upper bass frequencies.
Technical manager Ben Short comments, “The KV2 System is nothing short of how true club sound should be. It’s super low distortion levels result in such great amounts of Clarity. This, accompanied by that sheer power and transient response of the low end, is just to die for and leaves the audience and the artists smiling from ear to ear every time.
“As a sound engineer working with international artists on a weekly basis, it’s always a great comfort knowing that the sound system you work with delivers to such a high standard. This gives the team and myself all the confidence we need to help the artists deliver a great show. We couldn’t ask for anymore.”
