ISE 2017: Electro-Voice’s reveals flying subwoofer10 February 2017
Loudspeaker brand Electro-Voice – part of Bosch Security Systems – unveiled the latest member of the X-Line Advance line-array loudspeaker family: the X12-125F flying subwoofer.
It is a dual 15-inch system is equipped with high-output EV-engineered transducers delivering 9600 W output. The X12-125F features the family’s innovative Integrated Rigging System for quick, secure and seamless deployment in arrays, and is sonically matched to the other members of the family: X1 and X2 (high-performance) full-range models, and the X12-128 ground-stacking dual 18-inch subwoofer.
The X12-125F can also be used in ground-stacked configurations, making it a versatile choice for rental companies and mobile applications, as well as fixed installations including live performance venues and houses of worship. Its very compact, lightweight 18-ply Baltic birch enclosure is finished in EVcoat for superior durability.
The company also presented the first wave of products presented under the X-Line Advance banner includes the X1-212/90, a compact 12” vertical line-array loudspeaker system that is ideal for small- and mid-sized applications including houses of worship, local/regional rental companies, corporate events, clubs, and entertainment venues.
Though it is approximately a third smaller in size than systems typically used in these environments, the X1 is designed to deliver superior audio performance and higher output—meaning fewer units are required to achieve desired results—while also making system design, transit, and setup/teardown more efficient and cost-effective.
Its feature set includes the SMX2121 12” woofer for higher output and lower distortion and new, next-generation ND2R high-performance 2” HF compression drivers, mid-band Hydra (MBH) for superior box coupling and Wavefront-Shaping Circular Hydra (WCH) for extended linear HF performance, new integrated rigging system and passive or biamp operation.
Two additional X-Line Advance products are presented at ISE: the higher-output X2-212/90 full-range element for larger applications and the X12-128 dual-18” subwoofer.
