Electro-Voice Shows the X1-212/90 Compact Line-Array at ISE


The new X-Line Advance family of line-array loudspeakers from Electro-Voice includes the X1-212/90, a compact 12” vertical line-array loudspeaker system that is ideal for small- and mid-sized applications including houses of worship, local/regional rental companies, corporate events, clubs and entertainment venues. 

Though it is approximately a third smaller in size than systems typically used in these environments, Electro-Voice says the X1 is designed to deliver superior audio performance and higher output — meaning fewer units are required to achieve desired results — while also making system design, transit, and setup/teardown more efficient and cost-effective. 

The X1 feature set includes:
  • EV-engineered transducers
  • Enhanced Hydra plane-wave generators: Mid-Band Hydra (MBH) for box coupling and Wavefront-Shaping Circular Hydra (WCH) for extended linear HF performance.
  • New Integrated Rigging System for arraying: built-in hardware designed to enable a smaller crew to setup/teardown faster and more safely — in what they says is around half the time of a typical line-array system deployment.
  • New-look EV industrial design
  • Passive or biamp operation selected via an internal connector.

Two additional X-Line Advance products were debuted at ISE 2017. Here are the details.
