Burnsville, MN (July 6, 2006)–Based on its XLC127+ compact line array, Electro-Voice has introduced the XLC127DVX, a 3-way, full-bandwidth line-array element featuring the company’s newest DVX 3121 12-inch and DVN2065 6.5-inch woofers. The enclosure remains unchanged, featuring integrated quick-Rig rigging along with a high-frequency section incorporating EV’s “Hydra” plane-wave generator with two ND-6 large-format compression drivers.
The XLC127DVX will be also available as an installation model: The XLCi127DVX incorporates simplified, cost-reduced rigging and is suited for permanent installations. The XLC127DVX ships as triamp-only model; a mid/high crossover network for biamp applications is an available option.
When asked why EV has updated a product that has established itself as industry standard, Christian Glueck, director, product management, commented, “Shortly after the launch of X-Line Very Compact and its 12-inch DVX woofer-equipped XS212-LF cabinet, we received customer requests about our plans to use this new, very powerful speaker in the XLC. This led us to take a deeper look at our transducer program, resulting in the development of a brand new 12-inch LF driver–the DVX3121–and a new mid-bass driver, the DVN 6.5-inch.
“Once you have listened to this new combination of components, you will appreciate why we decided to offer an ‘upgraded’ version of the world’s most successful medium-size line-array system. It’s not just about the 3 dB more overall output. The level of sonic clarity for an arena-size system reaches new heights.”
To support all current customers of the XLC127+, EV will offer an upgrade kit to turn an XLC127+ into an XLC 127DVX.
