EM Acoustics is delighted to have been awarded one of the five highly sought-after awards from the Association of British Theatre Technicians at the recent ABTT show at Alexandra Palace in London. EM’s most recent addition to their successful EMS Series loudspeakers, the newly launched EMS-41 ultra-compact passive 2-way loudspeaker, was designated Sound Product of the Year 2018 by a panel of judges made up of experienced working practitioners and industry peers.

The judges’ comments noted that, “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 4” 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.”

Seen for the very first time just weeks previously at PLASA Focus in Leeds, EM Acoustics’ Mike Wheeler is thrilled to be taking home such a prestigious award for the new baby of the family. “We were already bowled over by the reaction to the EMS-41 at PLASA Focus,” he said, “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.”
