Electro-Voice Launches EVC

The latest member of the Electro-Voice EV-Innovation family of installation-dedicated loudspeaker systems, the five-model EVC series is designed for small/medium-sized installations. 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; waveguides are rotatable. The Variable Intensity (VI) model features a 12” two-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.
