In addition to the several large venues mentioned above, the G20 Summit also used many smaller conference halls and VIP rooms at the Hangzhou International Expo Center for a number of individual leaders' meetings, smaller conferences and forums, and for hosting guests. To ensure that these small venues still have excellent sound quality and do not destroy the aesthetics of the décor, another classic series of KLING&FREITAG (K&F) speakers - E90 MKII is installed in the wall. E90MK II is a 2-way passive high-performance sound column speakers, different from the general column speakers. It is not only able to control the sound energy distribution in the vertical direction very precisely, but it is also very suitable for various difficult sound reinforcement spaces because the control of directivity significantly reduces the reflected sound from the ceiling and floor. At the same time, E90MK II also has a high level of sound quality and elegant and sophisticated design, making it the first choice for high-end conference rooms and lecture halls.
