Burnsville, MN (September 8, 2006)–Electro-Voice has launched its concert sound amplifiers: Tour-Grade. The TG-7 packs 7kW into a 2U, 33-lb. package, while the smaller TG-5 serves up nearly 4kW of output power. Tour-Grade amplifiers use a 3-step, Class-H, grounded-bridge design. The microprocessor-controlled amplifiers have a front-panel LCD screen for setup and monitoring.
EV’s TG-7 Tour-Grade amplifierAll Tour-Grade models have a rear module slot that accepts DSP and remote-control modules for IRIS-Net. The first available module is RCM26, a 96 kHz, 2-channel DSP with a dynamic range of 116 dB and AES/EBU inputs that allow the use of “zero-latency” FIR and linear-phase FIR filters, in addition to conventional IIR filters. It features the same system supervision that monitors individual components via impedance measurement–a feature found in the P3000RL. Later this year, the RCM28 will be available, allowing for CobraNet interfaces.
