Electro-Voice Launches EVC Compact Loudspeakers for Fixed Installations

July 10 2018, 01:10
The latest member of the Electro-Voice EV-Innovation family of installation-dedicated loudspeaker systems, the five-model EVC series was designed to bring superior sound quality for small/medium-sized installations with more affordable and more reliable systems than ever before. The series features unique technology including Automatic Saturation Compensation (all models) and a Variable Intensity (VI) model, all with similar voicing and looks, and matching mounting and input panel accessories.

The five base models in the EVC series - all introduced at InfoComm 2018 - are available in black and white, with coverage patterns suitable for a wide range of indoor/outdoor sound reinforcement scenarios. Three (8”, 12”, 15”) 2-way trapezoidal models are available for use in a wide variety of applications where wide bandwidth, vertical and horizontal directivity control, and high efficiency are required in a compact, cost-effective package. Two coverage patterns are available for each size, and waveguides are rotatable. 

The unique Variable Intensity (VI) model - EVC-1122/VI, pictured below in black and white - features a 12” 2-way design with a unique compound waveguide that can evenly cover a defined rectangular audience area with almost no variation in sound quality and minimal change in level. An 18” subwoofer completes the lineup for use with any of the full-range systems. 

The EVC series can serve as a single-series source to cover applications ranging from single-room dance studios to high-SPL foreground music in multi-room bars, small clubs and restaurants. They are also voiced and styled to compliment more extensive and varied installations utilizing other EV-Innovation models - EVA (line array), EVF (front loaded), EVH (horn loaded), EVU (ultracompact) – including academic, hospitality, house of worship, live performance, recreation and sports venues.

Premium-quality, super-durable EV Coat comes standard (in black or white) on all models. Weather-resistant PI versions are available for enhanced resilience against the elements, with stainless steel grilles, hydrophobic cloth and a dual gland nut cover for the input panel. Secure installation is straightforward via multiple M10 suspension points and attachment points for an optional U-bracket or OmniMount style pan/tilt wall mount.

For 70V/100V operation, the input panel has an internal landing pad for mounting EV’s high-quality TK150 audio transformer. When the transformer is installed, it engages EV’s patented Automatic Saturation Compensation (ASC), which preserves low-frequency performance while presenting a stable load to the amplifier – regardless of the number of loudspeakers connected in parallel. As a result, EVC loudspeakers – including the subwoofers – sound virtually identical, whether they are used with a transformer or without, and system electronics are protected.
