Electro-Voice’s ETX powered loudspeakers for AV marketplace feature technologies from EV concert/touring systems
Electro-Voice’s ETX powered loudspeaker family features technologies from EV concert/touring systems

Introduced to the pro AV marketplace at InfoComm 2014 (booth C9708), the new ETX powered loudspeaker family builds upon the industry-leading innovation and 85-year heritage of Electro-Voice audio engineering to offer the most advanced professional powered loudspeakers available today for both portable and installed applications.

A versatile choice for live entertainment venues, houses of worship, and rental companies, the ETX Powered Loudspeaker family features technologies from EV concert/touring systems. EV-engineered high-efficiency transducers and high-powered Class-D amplifiers, Signal Synchronised Transducers (SST) waveguide design, and FIR-Drive DSP all work together to provide excellent sound quality and precise coverage at the highest SPLs.

Three two-way models (10-inch, 12-inch, and 15-inch, all with a precision 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.

Intelligent technology, innovative design

EV’s FIR-Drive utilises the latest Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter technology to optimise transducer linearity. Advanced limiter algorithms for independent peak and thermal transducer protection.

Complete full-function DSP control via a single-knob interface. LCD screen for easy 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 to ensure optimal gain structure. Parametric EQ allows for more precise configuration. Subs feature a preset for true cardioid performance.

EV-patented Signal Synchronised Transducers (SST) waveguide design provides precise and consistent coverage across all system configurations. Waveguides are custom-designed and optimised per model.

Superior power and performance

State-of-the-art components deliver the legendary EV sound quality and reliability the pros trust: 1800 W (subs) and 2000 W (full-range) Class-D power amplifiers with integrated DSP produce high SPLs utilising high-sensitivity, low-distortion transducers (including DVX and SMX series woofers and precision DH3-B HF titanium compression drivers).

Ergonomic, durable and compact 18-mm, 13-ply birch plywood enclosure finished with EV Coat. Eight mounting points for permanent installations (full-range models). Custom die-cast aluminum pole cups, handles and hardware.
