Electro-Voice Rolls Out Two New Speaker Series
Electro-Voice introduced two new series of loudspeakers for installed sound. Both part of the company's EV-Innovation family of installation loudspeakers, the EVH Series and the EVF offer two-way, full-range loudspeaker systems.
EVH Series loudspeakers are horn-loaded, coaxial systems with 15-inch woofers. Designate as EVH-1152S, there are five different rotatable waveguides available, ranging from 60x40 degrees to 90x90 degrees. They use the new ND2B high-output, 2-inch titanium compression driver coupled to a ratable Constant Directivity waveguide, and the SMX LF transducers, designed for high output and low distortion.
EVH's passive crossover network employs 24 dB/octave slopes for smooth response in the vocal range, linear off-axis response, and features a protection circuit for long-term reliability. The combination of technology in each EVH loudspeaker results in smooth response to 16 kHz and pattern control down to 500 Hz, says the company.
The EVF Series comprises two-way, front-loaded, full-range systems, available with 12-inch or 15-inch woofers, a range of coverage patterns, and includes low-frequency systems. EVF loudspeakers use high-order crossover networks to integrate the new SMX low-frequency transducer with the new ND2B compression driver, offering very low distortion and exceptional off-axis response.
There are 22 threaded suspension points that can be used with optional suspension kits to create several horizontal or vertical array configurations. All models are available in three versions: EVCoat, for interior use; PI for indirect weather exposure; and FG (fiberglass) finish, for direct exposure. All versions are available in black or white.
The EVF-1122S two-way 12-inch full-range loudspeaker model has six different rotatable waveguides, ranging from 60x40 degrees to 120x60. The two-way, 15-inch, full-range EVF-1152S model also has six different rotatable waveguides available, ranging from 40x30 degrees to 90x90 degrees.
The EVF-LF models include three front-loaded low-frequency subwoofers: EVF-1121S (12 inches), EVF-1151S (15 inches), and EVF-1181S (18 inches).
