imgNew York, NY (July 22, 2014)—Electro-Voice has introduced its new ETX Powered Loudspeaker family, intended for for live entertainment venues, houses of worship, and rental companies.

EV-engineered high-efficiency transducers and high-powered Class-D amplifiers, Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) waveguide design, and FIR-Drive DSP can be found in a trio of two-way models (10-inch, 12-inch, and 15-inch, all with an HF titanium compression driver), a three-way model (15-inch with a 6.5-inch MF driver and a precision HF titanium compression driver), and two subs (15-inch and 18-inch drivers) are available.

EV’s FIR-Drive utilizes the company’s latest Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter technology in an effort to optimize transducer linearity. Meanwhile, full-function DSP control is provided via a single-knob interface. An LCD screen aids system set-up and monitoring: location/application EQ presets (e.g. tripod, mounted, suspended, live, music, speech), limiter status, input level controls/meters, and master volume control.
The powered speakers incorporate 1800 W (subs) and 2000 W (full-range) Class-D power amplifiers with integrated DSP to utilize high-sensitivity, low-distortion transducers, including DVX and SMX series woofers and DH3-B HF titanium compression drivers.

The loudspeakers feature 18-mm, 13-ply birch plywood enclosures finished with EVCoat, and sport eight mounting points for permanent installations (full-range models). Custom die-cast aluminum pole cups, handles and hardware are also available. The family of loudspeakers are all designed, engineered, tested and assembled in the USA.
