EV’s unwavering commitment to customer needs has led to a résumé few
professional audio companies possess:
• 1934 — EV invents the
hum-bucking coil for
microphones (still a standard
almost 70 years later).
• 1940s — EV introduces
noise cancellation to
microphones; revolutionizes
tank and aircraft
communications.
• 1954 — EV introduces
• 1963 — EV receives an

• 1974 — EV develops
constant-directivity (CD)
horns. For the first time, a
loudspeaker maintains its
rated coverage angles over a
wide frequency range, for
significantly more uniform
sound quality and higher
intelligibility throughout
the audience.
It’s late afternoon, and a few men in fedoras are examining blueprints in
the basement of an Indiana tire company. It’s hot. It’s dusty.The year is
1927, and these are the humble beginnings of Electro-Voice.While the
history of EV may read like classic “rags-to-riches” pulp fiction, it is
nonetheless a real tale of American success.
Over the course of time, EV has grown into one of today’s dominant,
worldwide forces in the design and manufacturing of top-quality
products for broadcast, studio recording, touring sound, permanently
installed sound reinforcement and music playback systems. Recognized
the world over as a leader in audio technology, EV is ubiquitous in
performing arts centers, sports facilities, houses of worship, cinemas, live
music and dance clubs, transportation centers and theatres.
EV’s reputation for providing superior audio product and dedication
to innovation continues today. EV, now a product brand of Telex
Communications, Inc., shares technology with other Telex product
brands: Dynacord, Klark-Teknik, Midas and University Sound.
• 1985 — EV develops and is
the first to market N/DYM®
(neodymium-based) dynamic
microphones, with the high
output and extended highfrequency response of a
condenser.
• 1986 — EV revolutionizes concert
sound reinforcement by introducing
Manifold Technology.® In each of
four bandpasses covering the entire
frequency range, the output of four
loudspeakers is flawlessly combined
— or “manifolded” — into a single
horn or low-frequency enclosure.
The result is — in a physical package
a fraction of the size of conventional
concert rigs — four times the
acoustic output without the
drastically uneven coverage of
multiple acoustic sources “stacked”
for more output.
• 1990s — EV invents
RMD™ technology
(Ring-Mode Decoupling),
a revolutionary anodyne
to sonic distortion and
coloration. Speaker system
resolution and clarity
increases by minimizing
fundamental resonant
frequencies.
• 2000 — EV invents VOB™
technology (Vocal-Optimized
Bass), an innovative mechanical
design that significantly reduces
proximity effect, allowing for
greater vocal intelligibility and
instrumental clarity. EV also invents
ClearScan,™ a revolutionary
innovation in wireless technologies
that enables automatic, frequencyagile selection of the best of ten
UHF channels.

Ring-Mode Decoupling (RMD™)
for the best vocals you have
ever heard!
RMD™ and vocal quality: typical
loudspeaker sound is colored by many
acoustical and mechanical delayed
resonances. Occurring in speaker cones
and compression-driver diaphragms,
horn and enclosure walls, mechanical
resonances ring on after the desired
signal has stopped. Acoustic resonances
typically take place in horns when
sound is reflected back toward the driver at the horn mouth,
compression-driver loading cavities and phase plugs.
EV engineers have systematically exposed these resonances and
suppressed them one by one.We call this process Ring-Mode
Decoupling (RMD™).Typically many dB below the desired signal,
these resonances may be immeasurable by conventional means.
However, the human ear/brain combination is extremely sensitive
to such signals. RMD™ suppresses these signals and gives a quality of
sound and degree of clarity that critical listeners find breathtaking.
RMD™ and level-independent fidelity: in typical speaker
systems, as the overall sound pressure level is increased — such as
during a musical performance — the delayed resonances increase
proportionally more than the primary signal.This sends the sound
operator to the equalizers in an attempt to “fix” the sound —
ultimately an ill-fated attempt because changing the frequency
response of the system cannot eliminate the unpleasant resonances.
RMD™ suppresses resonances at their source. Sound quality is consistent
at all sound levels.
The proliferation of RMD™: our ultrahigh-performance
X-Array™ systems embody EV’s most extreme application of
RMD.™ Yet EV engineers have also applied RMD™ technology
to our most affordable loudspeakers systems. In this catalog, the
sight of the RMD™ logo is your guarantee of the best sound
quality that money can buy!

Premium touring-quality sound. Install it anywhere.
Dual L-track suspension hardware and ferrite magnetics are optimized for permanent installation
and portable applications of small-to-medium size. Inspired by the most demanded features of
EV’s acclaimed X-Array™ X-Series™ touring systems, the Xi-Series™ incorporates a potent
combination of very-high-output short-, medium- and long-throw “cells,” in two- and three-way
configurations, all with EV’s unique RMD™ (Ring-Mode Decoupling).
The Xi-Series™ three-way systems may be “tripole” or “dipole” configured to extend the vertical
coverage-angle control to as low as 125 Hz — well below that permitted by the mid-bass horn
alone (about 800 Hz) and unprecedented performance in a one-box system.Tripole configuration
of the dual-woofer three-way systems provides the best directivity improvement, achieved by the
vertically spaced low-frequency sources which flank the mid-bass horn operating alone at low
frequencies and by appropriately overlapping the LF and MB sources in the mid bass, e.g., 125 to
540 Hz.The required signal processing is available in EV Dx38, Klark Teknik DN9848 and Merlin®
ISP-100 digital processors, which contain dual all-pass filters required for proper configuration
(see pages 34–35).
The single-woofer three-way systems may be dipole configured, achieved by
overlapping the woofer and mid-bass sources in the appropriate frequency ranges.

X-Array™ X-Series™ speaker systems provide world class performance
and flexibility for the ultimate in concert touring systems. Special rigging
and neodymium magnetics for very large arrays.
X - A R R AY ™ > > >
The X-Array™ X-Series™ represents important advancements in concert-sound
reinforcement technology. The design goals called for the highest acoustic output capability with the
highest fidelity in relatively lightweight, compact enclosures that were easy to array.The individual
systems, drivers, horns, enclosures, rigging hardware and system configurations were designed from the
ground up specifically for this high-performance application.
Rigging for big hangs: unique rear-hinge rigging for fast, easy and secure rigging. A 64-box hang
goes up or down in 30 minutes. Front rigging straps control vertical aiming. Mating positioning recesses
on cabinet tops and bottoms help to assemble and disassemble an array on the ground, a layer at a time.
<<< EV
Neodymium magnetics: for lighter weight and maximum acoustic output. All 12-inch mid-bass
transducers are the ND12A, for a 3-dB average increase in output. Neodymium in the ND5A-16
compression driver increases output in the upper octaves.The “A” version incorporates new
time-domain refinements that further enhance the level-independent performance of the original.

Preliminary Information*
array section—while keeping the front enclosure edges very
close together for coherent high-frequency summing. Xvlt
horizontal coverage is 120°.
The development of the EV X-Line™ systems was driven
by the need for a high-level concert touring system that
combines the sonic impact and vocal intelligibility of the
renowned X-Array™ systems with the unique coverage
pattern of an optimally configured vertical line array.
The X-Line™ horizontal pattern is defined in the conventional
sense — being the two points on the polar response where
output is 6 dB down from the on-axis maximum — and is
quite wide, 90° or 120° depending on model. The array’s
vertical pattern, on the other hand, is nominally very narrow in
the conventional sense — as little as 2° to 3°, with output
dropping rapidly as the angle off axis is further increased. In a
line array, the audience is not situated within the very narrow
nominal vertical coverage angle just noted, but instead occupies
nearly the entire quadrant below the vertical axis, to almost
underneath the array.The array is suspended so that the farthest
listener is on its vertical axis. Closer listeners fall increasingly
below this axis.With optimal configuration and location of the
array, the higher sound levels expected from the decreasing
listener-to-array distances are precisely counteracted by the
controlled, reduced output of the array below its vertical axis.
The EV engineering team set out to develop the nextgeneration line-array system, combining their years of
experience in the development of X-Array™ with the absolute
latest state-of-the-art technologies. All X-Line™ systems utilize
EV’s exclusive RMD™ (Ring-Mode Decoupling), a process
that significantly reduces the individual mechanical and
acoustical resonant modes that color the sound of loudspeakers
(see page 1).
The Line-Array Challenge
Achieving the unique directional characteristics described above
over a broad frequency range is not a trivial exercise. In
developing X-Line™, EV engineers dealt with this significant
challenge being fully aware of the physical laws involved and
producing a number of effective solutions to problems, only the
most significant of which are described here.
All three full-range systems employ newly developed
components and a time-synchronized waveguide. ND5A largeformat compression drivers cover frequencies above 1,200 Hz,
and incorporate elements that substantially improve timedomain response to provide even clearer, less colored uppervocal-range performance than the ND5 predecessor. Each fullrange system utilizes three vertically stacked ND5A drivers
coupled to the Hydra™, EV's unique vertical plane-wave
generator.The Hydra™ extends over the full vertical height of
the enclosure, combining two acoustical alignment techniques
that ensure uniform phase over the entire vertical plane of the
waveguide — producing superb summing in the vertical plane,
free of lobes and nulls. Dual, vertically stacked ND8 8-inch
transducers load into the mid-bass horn, flanked horizontally by
two EVX-155p 15-inch low-frequency transducers.The ND8’s
feature neodymium magnetics for extremely high efficiency.
The EVX-155p is a version of the highly regarded EVX-155,
optimized for location on the most “inboard” portion of the
mid-bass horn.This unique LF/MB configuration is free from
the polar lobing of other line arrays.
<<< EV®
The Optimal Line-Array Concept.
X-LINE™ >>>
X-Line™ Line-Array Touring System
While the Xfil is primarily intended for down fill, its very
broad, 120° horizontal coverage angle and line-array
configuration also allow it be used as the main array element to
cover fan-shaped rooms. X-Line™ low-frequency systems
feature two EVX-180B 18-inch drivers.They have footprints
identical to other X-Line™ enclosures and are available with
rigging (XsubF) or without (Xsub).The rigging option allows
XsubF’s to be flown next to a main Xvls/Xvlt hang.
X-Line™ rigging is an enhanced version of the tour-proven
X-Array™ X-Series™ front-strap/back-hinge concept.This
facilitates rapid load-in/load-out with a high degree of safety
and ease of use. Unlike other line-array systems, the X-Line™
provides flexible transportation options.
>>> SPECIFICATIONS
X-Line™ includes the Xvls and Xvlt full-range line-array
systems, Xfil full-range down-fill system and Xsub and XsubF
(with rigging) low-frequency systems.These are described in
more detail below.
Two full-range devices covering 40-16,000 Hz form the
foundation of X-Line™, both with frontal dimensions of 495
mm (19.5 in.) high x 1245 mm (19.5 in.) wide. Transducer
complements are identical.The Xvls is a full rectangular cabinet
designed for the upper, very-long-throw portions of the line
array where box axes are essentially parallel (straight section of
the array when viewed from the side). Xvls horizontal coverage
is 90°.The Xvlt has a trapezoidal shape with a 5° included angle
when viewed from either end.This allows the lower portion of
an array to have vertically diverging box axes to form a curved

Product Line Overview
The X-Line™ system has been proven on the road with major
live acts, and tour-inspired enhancements have brought new
levels of imaging, uniformity of coverage and level-independent
sonic accuracy.
FRX Series
The FRX Series is designed for applications where directivity control
down to 500 Hz is critical.
FRX SERIES>>>
The small components of the typical compact, aesthetically pleasing speaker system are not large
enough to control the system’s rated coverage angle below about 2,500 Hz. Unfortunately, this sprays
the bulk of the vocal range on highly reflective room surfaces, markedly decreasing intelligibility and
clarity. EV’s FRX systems are different. In a trapezoidal enclosure no taller than the typical compact
system and only a bit wider, they maintain control of coverage angles down to 500 Hz! This is
achieved by loading the 15-inch woofer with a horn whose mouth is large enough — basically as
large as the enclosure itself — to provide the control.
<<< EV
Rotatable high-frequency horns are coaxially mounted within the mouth of the LF horn. Biamp

FRi SERIES >>>
The FRi series brings premium EV components, including the DH2T compression driver and
DL-type woofers, to a new level of affordability. FRi’s fit in a wide range of venues—houses of
worship, live music clubs and discos, and sports facilities. Designed from the ground up for safe,
attractive installations, all main modules have the same 28-inch height for uniform array appearance.
Deep box draft angles allow horizontal arrays with large enough angles between box axes to
significantly reduce multiple-source interference—yet provide a near-continuous frontal appearance.
Cloth-coverable grilles with no visible fasteners complement the environment. Suspension is by many
3/8-16 threaded mounting points, 12 on full-range systems, 16 on sub. High-frequency horns are
rotatable; thus, coverage patterns can be independent of box orientation. Bypass the internal passive
crossover networks for biamp operation. Available in black (-BLK), white (-WH) and unfinished (-UN).

EVI Vari Intense Series

The EVI Vari Intense® series provides an economical solution for
permanent installations requiring coverage over a rectangular area.
EVI SERIES >>>
EV EVI Vari Intense® (VI) speakers are unique in the world, engineered to eliminate the need for a
second long-throw horn or delayed source in many rooms. In a typical room, the distance from the
loudspeaker to the last row is two or more times that to the front row, resulting in a substantial loss in
level and intelligibility at the rear.The VI horn delivers 6 to 8 dB more level to the back of the room,
overcoming the level loss without resorting to the expense and complexity of additional speaker
systems or components.
EVI systems are available in black (-BLK), white (-WH), or unfinished (-UN), ready for painting or staining.

Low-Frequency and
Subwoofer Utility Systems
UTILITY SYSTEMS > >
Electro-Voice offers a wide variety of low-frequency and subwoofer
systems for general fixed installation.
Low-frequency systems have f3’s (the point at which response is 3 dB down) as low as 40 Hz. Subwoofers
extend this response to as low as 23 Hz in the “step down” mode, which requires low-frequency EQ boost.
In general, response below 40 Hz is required for theatrical effects, full reproduction of pipe organ, and a few
special effects in contemporary music such as synthesizers and down-tuned bass guitars.
All TL systems except the TL880D and TL880P feature humidity-resistant ProWood™ cabinets covered in
paintable black wood-grain vinyl. (TL880’s are constructed of plywood finished in textured black paint.) For
all but the TL880’s, HS series flying kits are available, containing through-the-box steel tubes for vertical
suspension of up to three cabinets (see engineering data sheets for details).
<<< EV
Note: many EV speaker system lines include their own LF and subwoofer systems, including X-Array™
X-Series™ and Xi-Series,™ FRX series, FRi series and Sx-Series™. See pages 2 to 12 and 15 to 18.

Woofers
WOOFERS >>>
EV component woofers are high-efficiency designs, highly refined from
years of development and field experience.
They employ extended-length voice coils for high-impact reproduction of dynamic low-frequency
program. All models feature proprietary heat-transfer systems for unmatched power capacity and
reliability. A Flux Demodulation Device (FDD™) encircles both voice coil and pole piece, providing
an additional heat-transfer path and reducing distortion across the band.Voice coils are electrically
insulated from adjacent metal parts to reduce damage from any rubbing contact during violent
power peaks.

HP High-Frequency
Horns
HORNS >>>
The HP horn series is a refinement of the concept of “constant
directivity,” which in 1974 EV was the first to introduce.
For the first time, horn coverage angles were truly uniform over a wide frequency range. In the HP
series, unique beamwidth-control vanes within the horn throat form a waveguide that eliminates the
narrowing of coverage angle — beaming — that occurs in other 2-inch-throat horns. EV’s patented
Transplanar™ design provides exceptionally smooth frequency response. HP horns or variants thereof
are used throughout the EV speaker system lines.
<<< EV
Each HP horn features an integral die-cast metal throat encapsulated in the fiberglass sidewalls.This
unitized construction provides very high strength and low weight.The charcoal gray gel-coat finish
will provide years of service in a variety of environments.

Stadium Horns
<<< EV
HORNS >>>
The MH Series is designed for large-scale venues (e.g. stadiums and
arenas) where high-fidelity sound is required.
EV revolutionized the industry by pioneering the concepts of constant directivity — horn coverage
angles that are constant with frequency — and Manifold Technology®— combining the outputs of
multiple transducers into one horn.The four-digit MH series embodies both, in a set of horn/driver
systems ideal for stadiums and other large-scale venues. Because of their large mouth size, MH horns
maintain their beamwidth to very low frequencies, in the range of 250-350 Hz, reducing bass
“spillover” and increasing intelligibility. No other commercially available systems achieve this degree
of control.The large horn size also provides frequency response to 100 Hz, typically eliminating the
need for supplemental low-frequency systems.
High frequencies extend to 4,000 Hz, but most system designs are based on the coaxial “C” versions,
which include an appropriate medium-format HP horn that accepts EV two-inch-exit drivers of the
designer’s choice, extending response to 20,000 Hz. (HF drivers must be ordered separately.) Use
single drivers DH1A or N/DYM®1 or dual, manifolded drivers DH1A/2MT or N/DYM®1/2MT.
The dual drivers double HF output, important for very long throws.The N/DYM® drivers offer
the ultimate output in the upper octaves, important when contemporary music is to be heard over
long distances.The large MH horns now incorporate EV’s exclusive RMD™, for even better vocal
intelligibility and musical clarity.
MH4020AC two-way quad-ten-inch

Compression Drivers
<<< EV
DRIVERS >>>
Unlike most producers of speaker systems, EV designs and
manufactures its own compression drivers.
Compression-driver manufacture is one of the basic audio activities — a unique combination of
exacting science, art and experience. EV forms its own one-piece, geometrically optimized titanium
diaphragms to precise tolerances on proprietary machinery, loaded into phase plugs of unique design.
Lightweight edge-wound aluminum comprises our voice coils. All contribute to extended frequency
response (to 20 kHz), high efficiency and outstanding reliability.The separate components described
below and specialized variations are used throughout the EV speaker system lines.

yet is small enough to raise breakup modes well above those
of 4-inch-diaphragm designs, for truly detailed and transparent
high frequencies
• Reduces weight from 24 lb to 7 lb!
DH1A-WP and DH1A-WPX large-format
two-inch-exit compression drivers
• Weather-resistant DH1A’s
• Extended rear cover houses a 70.7-volt/100-watt transformer
with selectable taps and a gland nut for cable entry
• The DH1A-WPX omits the transformer
DH1A/2MT Manifold Technology®
large-format dual-compression-driver
summation system
• The output of two drivers is flawlessly combined by
a specially designed reflective summation path for in-phase,
coherent summation
• Increases flux density to 2.25 tesla, for enhanced
output in the highest octaves
• N/DYM®1/2MT is manifolded version
DH2A medium-format two-inch-exit
compression driver
• 2-inch diaphragm handles full power down to 800 Hz
DH3 small-format 1-inch-exit
compression driver
• Optimized for use as a supertweeter in professional three- and
four-way sound systems
• 1.25-inch diaphragm handles full power down to 5,000 Hz
• May be used as low as 1,500 Hz when midband output is
attenuated to match the lower sensitivity of the typical directradiating woofer employed in compact two-way speaker systems
• Twice the acoustic output from a single horn
• Use with the coaxial four-digit MH stadium horns
for increased HF output

German Engineering
Much of EV’s reputation in the audio community stems from EV’s reliability and
performance through time-tested rigors of the road, fixed-installation environments,
studio use, and numerous other applications. EV products are designed and
manufactured from this standpoint — high-quality products should be dependable,
rugged and acoustically exceptional.
The caliber of EV design and engineering is second to none.Why? For one, many
of our electronics products are conceived, designed and built in Germany — a
country renowned for excellence in automobile engineering, manufacturing design
and world-leading audio, among other notables. Ultimately, this translates to
increased reliability.
Absolute Reliability. EV amplifiers and electronics contain world-leading, built-in
protection systems. German design is responsible for unique thermal protection
(temperature-sensing on transformers — not only the product cooling systems)
and an extraordinary low product failure rate. In addition, proprietary EV products
are tested eight times before shipping — to ensure that if there is a problem with a
product, it will not be your problem.
Exemplary Audio Performance. EV amplifiers and electronics are tested and rated
according to musical signal — not the misleading, theoretical lab signal commonly
used by competitors.There is a big difference between continuous signal and the
kind of maximum bursts inherent to musical performance — and we recognize
these real-world situations, having built 30% headroom into all of our amplifier
power supplies. In addition, German-engineered dynamic limiters handle these
spontaneous musical peaks like no other, managing the signal peaks and allowing at
any given time no greater than 1% distortion.This ensures greater acoustic quality
and disturbance-free performance.

VOB™
EV’s unique VOB™ technology (Vocal-Optimized
Bass) provides the performer with reduced lowfrequency distortion. Critical damping of the
low-frequency resonant peak has resulted in a
microphone that replaces the “muddiness” found
in competitive models with greater warmth and
increased vocal intelligibility.With a wider range of
working distances than other microphones, this
intelligibility ensures a clean, clear, consistent sound
that “cuts through the mix.”
N/DYM Wired Mics
®
N/DYM® MICS >>>
EV was the first to use a neodymium-based magnet structure in a microphone and is the only
manufacturer to offer VOB™ (Vocal-Optimized Bass) technology.These technologies counteract
proximity effect, sibilance and P-popping, thus assuring maximum vocal intelligibility and musical
clarity.Whether used in theatrical performances, worship ceremonies, live concerts, or high-profile
speaking engagements, EV N/DYM® microphones offer clear, sparkling sound.
As part of a fixed installation, in the studio, or on the road,
EV N/DYM® microphones outperform any microphone
in their class.

STUDIO MICS >>>
EV’s Variable-D® design used in the RE20 and RE27N/D broadcast studio products was
developed to ensure true and accurate response across all frequencies without the up-close
boominess associated with “proximity effect.” As a result, these microphones
have become the industry standard for radio studios worldwide. And when it
comes to studio recording, the RE20 series and our condenser models,
RE200 and RE1000, provide you with the tools you need get the sound
you’re after when recording vocals, guitars, drums or brass.
RE1000 studio condenser microphone
• Reduces proximity effect to maintain uniform LF response
at any distance
• True condenser – high-voltage, externally biased transducer
• Exceptionally flat response
• N/DYM® technology provides wider frequency-response and
higher output
• Detailed, accurate transients
• Three switchable filters: one high frequency, two low frequencies,
and an internal blast/wind filter cover

ArraySHOW™
A powerful loudspeaker arraying software package for use by system designers to optimize
loudspeaker clusters and arrays early in the planning stages. Explicitly reveals the lobes and nulls from
multiple loudspeaker sources that compromise coverage uniformity and intelligibility. Guidelines are
included to optimize array configurations and directivity control.
• Build an array by selecting one or more loudspeakers and aim them to produce an array diagram
• Select a frequency and microphone distance for viewing directivity results in a colorful “directivity
globe” and horizontal and vertical polars
• Edit the array to optimize results
• Save arrays and quickly compare different results
