E-V 14A EDS
 E-V 14A COMPACT
LOUDSPEAKER SYSTEM
Zeclko Voice ENGINEERING DATA |
DESCRIPTION
In the decade or more since the introduction of compact
speaker systems, performance has improved dramatically
through a series of subtle refinements in materials, engi-
neering knowledge, and production techniques. The
result of this continuing advancement has been progres-
sively better sound at ever lower costs, and the E-V 14A
loudspeaker system is a case in point.
An acoustic suspension woofer must have an extremely
low free-air resonance so that the additional restoring
force of the air sealed in the enclosure will raise the
operating resonance to the desired frequency. The E-V
14A woofer has a free-air resonance of 25 Hz. A sealed,
urethane foam half-roll surround maintains precise
alignment of the cone without unnecessarily raising the
resonance,
From 1500 Hz to the limit of audibility, a special
2%-inch cone tweeter provides the sparkle and brilliance
so necessary for satisfying musical reproduction. The use
of a relatively large diameter cone maintains the
necessary efficiency down to the lower limit of the
tweeter's range. However, unlike some tweeters, the flat-
cone geometry and aluminum dome maintain wide
dispersion for complete coverage of the listening area.
A deluxe LCR crossover controls the input to each of
the drivers, and provides adjustment of high-frequency
response to match listening room acoustics. The cross-
over and all components are tested individually, and
then as a complete system, to assure laboratory standard
performance.
The attractive E-V 14A enclosure is rigidly constructed
throughout and is handsomely finished in grained walnut
vinyl on all four sides. The nameplate, which is held in
place by an adhesive backing, may be repositioned to
permit either horizontal or vertical placement.

PLACEMENT
The E-V 14A may be placed on a table, shelf or on the
floor. Generally however, the most realism will be
obtained if its height from the floor is equal to the
listener's ear level. The E-V 14A performs equally well
placed in a horizontal or vertical position.
For stereophonic placement the two systems should be
far enough apart to permit listeners to sit at the apex of
a thirty- to forty-degree angle, as illustrated in Figure 1.
A distance of six to eight feet between stereo speakers
Will, in most rooms, provide natural separation. Placing
the loudspeakers too close together or listening at too
great a distance will destroy the stereo effect, and the
sound will be essentially monophonic. Extreme spacing
between speakers or listening at too short a distance will
produce exaggerated and unreal separation. In long
rooms, the loudspeakers should be placed along one of
the short walls facing into the long room dimension.
This improves bass reproduction and provides good
stereo listening over most of the room.

AMPLIFIER CONNECTIONS
The E-V 14A has a nominal impedance of eight ohms.
Connections should be made between the right terminal
and the amplifier 8-ohm terminal; the left terminal
should be connected to the amplifier “common” ter-
minal (sometimes referred to as “O” or *“C").
Connections should be made with No. 18 or larger wire:
common zip- or lamp-cord is satisfactory, If the speaker
leads are to be run behind a molding strip or under a
carpet, TV twin lead may be used.
ADJUSTMENT OF BALANCE CONTROL
The E-V 14A is equipped with a continuously-variable
balance control to adjust the high-frequency response of
the system to varying acoustical environments. The
“normal” position, indicated on the control, should be
“HOLE IN THE correct in most instances. Acoustically “hard” or “live”
MIDDLE" rooms may require a retarded setting of the control to
900 compensate for the greater amount of high-frequency
reflection. In “soft” or “dead” rooms with carpeting,
soft furniture, and draperies, an advanced setting of the
control will normally be required. The best guide to
setting the control properly is a familiarity with the
sound of live music, That position of the control which
provides the musical balance most satisfactory to you is
correct.
