KV2 Celebrates 15 th Anniversary in 2017 KV2 Audio is celebrating its 15 th anniversary this year. In 2002, KV2 began its journey in a small cottage tucked away in the forests of Southern Bohemia near the Czech town of Milevsko. In January of 2003, the ES System was released at The NAMM Show and the company has been growing ever since. Now housed in a 9,000-sq. m. custom-built factory in Milevsko, KV2 man- ufactures everything in-house except GEORGE KRAMPERA SR. transducers, which are still imported from Italy. “We have never compromised our design principles to follow market trends,” says KV2 Founder and Chief Engineer, George Krampera Sr. Krampera was seen as a rebel for many years as he bucked the industry trends in digital technology and line array systems, but he says he’s been vindicated with KV2 being specified into more and more high- end installations. “For KV2, it is only about one thing,” he adds – “the sound.” For more information, contact KV2 Au- dio: 905-409-0973, canada@kv2audio.com, www.kv2audio.com.
