EM Acoustics claimed the ABTT Sound Product of the Year award for the EMS-4, a new compact two-way passive speaker part of its EMS Series.
The product received praise from the judges, who said: “Following on from the success of the EMS-51, EM Acoustics have downsized with the EMS-41. This speaker features a compact design with a four inch driver and coaxial compression driver, producing a similar output to the larger EMS-51 but at half the size and below half the weight. This compact unit is ideal for placing discretely in positions where visual impact needs to be minimal, and the multiple connection options to the rear of the unit means it will integrate efficiently with existing infrastructure.”
EM Acoustics’ Mike Wheeler comments: “We were already bowled over by the reaction to the EMS-41 at PLASA Focus Leeds, “but this is just fantastic, especially as we were up against some pretty tough competition from very well-known brands, so it’s doubly gratifying.
“We developed the EMS-41 specifically in response to customer requests asking for an ultra-compact extension to the EMS Series to give them more options when space is tight or visual impact needs to be minimal. To have that decision – and the resulting product – rubber-stamped by such a prestigious jury makes us very proud.”
