E-V SIX
Elecho Voice EEE | OUDSPEAKER SYSTEM
DESCRIPTION
The Electro- Voice E-V SIX is a distinguished four-
way reproducer offering the finest possible listening
quality for its size and price range. The use of
four separate drivers, each handling a special
portion of the audible spectrum, permits vastly
lower distortion and wide frequency range. Care-
fully matched to the driver components and con-
structed of selected hardwoods, the E-V SIX
enclosure is a superbcombination of fine furniture
design and acoustical excellence.
The overwhelming superiority of the low-frequency
response delivered by the E-V SIX is the result of
its massive 18-inch low-frequency driver. This
unit, the largest in any system except the Electro-
Voice Patrician 800, comprises a pressure-cast
frame, a four pound, ten ounce ceramic magnet,
edgewise-wound voice coil, one-half inch thick
foam cone, and a remarkably linear suspension
which allows long, yet carefully controlled, ex-
cursions. The 250 to 800 cps frequency range is
handled by a specially designed eight-inch driver
which provides true-to-life reproduction of the
important mid-bass frequencies. A die cast
chassis, edgewise-wound voice coil and ceramic
magnet are also features of this remarkable unit.
The critical presence range from 800 to 3500 cps
is reproduced by an entirely new mid-range driver
and diffraction horn combination which utilizes the
latest in precision injection molding techniques.
Lowest possible distortion is assured through the
use ofa ring-type diaphragm rather than one of the
conventional dome types. Diaphragm breakup is
thus virtually eliminated. Ultra-precise high-
frequency response is delivered by a deluxe com-
pression VHF driver and diffraction horn. Typical

FEATURES
e Four-way system utilizes separate drivers to
obtain unequaled response and minimum
distortion
e Eighteen-inch woofer for clean bass
reproduction
e Highest quality audio components throughout
e Enclosure of select hardwoods carefully
matched to components
are the heavily chrome-plated housing and silvered-
aluminum voice coil. A four-way electrical cross-
over, with crossover frequencies at 250, 800 and
3500 cps, provides smooth transition from one
driver unit to the next. Highest quality electrical
components and etched circuit board construction
are employed to assure greater power handling
capacity and crossover-frequency accuracy.
The E-V SIX system in traditional styling, is
available in hand-rubbed oiled walnut and mahogany
finishes.

PLACEMENT
The E-V SIX may be placed at any convenient
location in the listening room. As with any loud-
speaker system, placement in a room corner
assures maximum efficiency and bass reproduction,
since the room walls are thus made an integral part
of the system, acting as the sides of a large horn,

Figure 2 - Placement For Stereo
For stereophonic reproduction, the two E-V SIX
systems should be far enough apart to permit the
listener to sit at the apex of a 309 to 409 angle as
shown. A distance of six to eight feet between
stereo speakers will, in most arrangements, pro-
vide natural separation. Placing loudspeakers too
close together or listening at too great a distance
will destroy the stereo effect, since essentially
monophonic sound will be heard by the listener.
Extreme spacing between speakers or listening at
too short a distance will produce exaggerated and
unreal separation. Inlong 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 TO THE E-V SIX
The E-V SIX system has a nominal impedance of
eight ohms. Connection should therefore be made
between the left terminal (T1) and the amplifier
eight-ohm terminal; the right terminal (T2) should
be connected to the amplifier COMMON terminal
(sometimes identified as "O" or "C"). Connections
should be made with No. 18 or larger wire; "zip"
or lamp cord is quite satisfactory, If the speaker
leads are to run behind a molding strip or under a
carpet, 300-ohm TV twin lead should be used.
ADJUSTMENT OF BALANCE CONTROL
The E- V SIX system is equipped with a unique five-
position step-type control offering precise adjust-
ment of the system to roomacoustics and personal
tastes. The action of this switch is shown in the
frequency response curves. Switch position 3,
which provides a "flat" frequency response will be
approximately correct in most instances. Note,
however, that room acoustics influence the response
of any loudspeaker system, and proper use of the
balance control will permitadjustment of the system
to any listening room. The best guide to setting
the control properly is, of course, a familiarity
with sound of live music. Acoustically "hard" or
"live''rooms normally will require a retarded setting
of the controls to compensate for the greater amount
of high-frequency reflection. In'"'soft" or "dead"
rooms with carpeting, draperies and soft furniture,
a more advanced setting of the control usually will
be required. In addition, the balance control per-
mits adjustment of the reproduced sound to one's
personal taste without the distortion normally en-
countered in amplifier tone controls. That setting
which provides the most pleasing overall sound to
the listener is correct.
CUSTOMER SERVICE
The E-V SIX system is packed to provide protection
well in excess of shipping requirements of the
Interstate Commerce Commission. If shipping
damage does occur, contact the carrier, requesting
inspection and instructions, or the dealer from
whom the unit was purchased. The E-V SIX is
guaranteed indefinitely against defects in original
workmanship and materials. Should your system
become damaged or develop faulty operation from
unusual conditions of use, please write to the
Electro-Voice Service Department requesting
return authorization and shipping instructions.
Be certain to mention the make and model number
of other components used in the system.
