Electro-Voice introduced two new EVID series ceiling speakers. The standard EVID-C-G2 series includes seven models and replaces the existing C series. The addition of five EVID-EC entry-level models further expands the previous product lineup.

Electro-Voice says the 12 models collectively provide mix-and-match price/performance options that can be selected to precisely address the distributed audio requirements of different areas in an installation. Configurations range from 3” full-range to 8” two-way and subwoofer models, and include dedicated models for specific applications, such as low-profile, high-ceiling/high-performance, UL 1480, CSA/ULC-S541:2016 and EN54-24 EVAC-certified models. The 3” entry-level model (EVID-EC3.1) is suitable for high humidity spaces and is IP45 rated. All C-G2 and EC models are UL 1480A and UL 2043 certified.

Aesthetically and acoustically compatible with existing EVID ceiling speakers, the company says the new models are designed to deliver an advanced combination of best-in-class sound quality, refined styling and user-friendly features that “reaffirms the EVID family’s reputation for performance and robust reliability.” Whether used for background music or announcements, there’s a combination of EVID ceiling speakers to suit every space and application scenario – a go-to solution for elevating audio ambiance and speech intelligibility in hospitality establishments, entertainment venues, educational facilities, houses of worship, retail spaces, places of business and more.

As with all EVID models, the new C and EC series models have been designed with the integrator in mind, with multiple time-saving features that will add value to every project. The new SwiftLock System (C-G2 models only) supports quick, precise and secure attachment to the ceiling with a simple push-and-lock mechanism for hassle-free installation or replacement. Elecro-Voice says the easy-access front-baffle wattage tap and side-access terminal blocks make adjustment and connection simpler than ever. All models are 70/100V.

The C-G2 and EC models feature the same three cut-out sizes and outside diameter sizes as the previous-generation C series models: small/7”, medium/11” and large/13”. In addition to ensuring a more balanced appearance, this standardized sizing makes multi-model and/or retrofit installations easier, as the same cut-out holes may be used/re-used.

Electro-Voice says all models include easy-to-attach bezel-less magnetic grilles in a paintable white finish. This means that only the grilles need to be painted, saving time when it comes to choosing or matching a venue’s color scheme. Black-finish grilles are available as an accessory for all sizes and square grilles are available in white for the medium/11” size, adding further flexibility to compliment any architectural environment. All models have protective cloth under the grille.

The Electro-Voice Ceiling & Pendant Speaker Calculator is free to download and has been updated to include all the new models.
