At the NSCA Expo 2004, Lynn Martin, president of American Music & Sound (AM&S), announced the addition of KV2 Audio installed and portable live sound loudspeaker systems to its roster of distributed products for the United States. KV2 Audio produces the compact, modular ES Series and EX Series of loudspeaker systems.

Headed up by George Krampera and Marcelo Vercelli—the "K" and "V" of the company name—KV2 Audio's designers manufacturer high-quality active loudspeaker systems including the RCF™, ART Series, the Fussion™3000/1800 and numerous Mackie speaker designs. The team additionally brings more than 30 years’ experience designing rugged, high-performance, high-current power amps to the new brand.

"We are very excited to be able to address the needs of our dealers and their customers for high-quality performance loudspeaker systems," said Martin. "George and Marcelo have been pioneers in the field of active, small-venue loudspeaker technology for many years, and have now brought next-generation designs to market in an innovative, easy-to-use live sound system. It gives us great pleasure to be able to add this outstanding speaker technology to a product line that already includes Allen & Heath's industry-leading live sound mixing consoles."

KV2's Vercelli said, "We think it's a great opportunity for both companies. To team up with AM&S and the brands that they distribute currently makes a lot of sense for both of us. The guys within the distribution company see the value in our brand and certainly respect the pedigree, the technologies and solutions that we bring to the table. And we feel that we've teamed-up with a bunch of guys who understand the marketplace, the dealers and end-users as well as anybody else."

American Music & Sound also distributes Mark Bass amplification and Walden Guitars. For more information on American Music & Sound, contact Martin at For more information on KV2, visit
