Pure Analog Controlled Directivity Open Baffle Loudspeaker.The KC II is the first under $US2500.00 open baffle Emerald Physics speaker that runs with no DSP and can be run with a single amp. We believe it is a breakthrough in a speaker in this price range. With its new Emerald Physics designed 8” “Godzilla” point source professional driver system and Aperture bass loading, the KC II is a true 4 driver 3-way open baffle design. Open baffle presents music without the box coloration's of typical speakers. Our dipole bass/midrange presents a huge sonic soundstage that offers superb imaging with our point source midrange/tweeter design. Cutting edge sonic performance establishes a new level of realism.

 

 

 

  No DSP and Single Amp drive - Does not require bi-amplification, although it can be bi-amped or tri-amped for even better performance. 

  • 2  New Emerald Physics EP10 woofers
  • 8” Emerald Physics "Godzilla" midrange with 1" Emerald coincident (screw in) point source Tweeter
  • World Class sonic performance in a compact and easy to place package
  • Incredible imaging and soundstage reproduction. 
  • Open Baffle Bass speed and articulation. 
  • Works well in small rooms as close as 2 feet from the rear wall. 

Charcoal Black powder coated MDF is standard finish.

"Emerald Physics was, as usual, showing exceptional products at really exceptionally low prices"
“This system put many five-figure systems to shame”
"it was a sure sign of the apocalypse. Nice work, gents."
Robert Harley of The Absolute Sound said:
Perhaps the best overall value at the show was the Emerald Physics KCII open-baffle loudspeaker system ($2499) driven by the company’s EP100.2SE hybrid power amplifier. The whole system was priced at just under $6k at retail, but offered at $3799. This system put many five-figure systems to shame.
 
Best Sound (for the money): Emerald Physics KCII speaker system ($2495/pr.) driven by Emerald’s EP100.2SE amplifier and Anti-Mode’s Dual 2.0 as preamp playing CDs from a modest Marantz player. This demo featured among the most involving overall sound that I heard at the show.
