High Power Meets High Performance in This Low-Profile JBL Speaker!

People might actually notice your background music if it's pumped through a versatile full-range loudspeaker like the Electro-Voice EVID 4.2. Developed to project the sound and bass response of a much bigger speaker without being overly big, the EVID 4.2 features an innovative, compact dual-woofer design that delivers clean, full-range audio for busy, space-limited environments such as bars, bistros, retail stores, outdoor seating areas, and restaurants.

Looks Great in Installations

In addition to providing stellar sound to any space, the EVID 4.2 loudspeaker looks good while doing it, blending right in to any area -- you won't have an enormous black box eyeing you from the corner of the room. You can surface-mount it wherever you need it, aim it at your customers or crowd using the Strong Arm Mount, and even paint the exterior to better match its surroundings. Place the Electro-Voice EVID 4.2 anywhere you want consistently excellent audio performance.

Listen Up: Dual 4-inch Woofers

Even in the loudest, most challenging listening environments, the EVID 4.2 won't let you down. Its dual 4-inch woofers provide a fully fortified bass experience, while a 1-inch waveguide coupled titanium tweeter delivers controlled clean mids and highs. Full system protection guarantees superior audio output despite possible overloads or clipping. Add a subwoofer to your setup to extend the EVID 4.2's low-frequency response, and you're all set for a lush listening experience.

Not Your Standard Boxy Speaker

Electro-Voice's EVID surface mount systems are different from standard speaker fare. Instead of a box or trapezoidal system, speakers such as the EVID 4.2 are curvy, elegant, and so sleek they're nearly unnoticeable, so they integrate perfectly into a variety of themed or commercial environments. If your walls happen to be a hue other than black or white, you can paint the exterior finish of the speaker to better blend in with your decor. If you want an invisible sound system, this is it.

EVID Stands for Electro-Voice Innovative Design

The included Strong-Arm Mount (SAM) system allows you to mount your speaker wherever you need it and have the flexibility to aim it at your listeners. Making the EVID 4.2 even more versatile, its elliptical ABS enclosure is weather-resistant and can be mounted inside or out without affecting performance quality. It's also magnetically shielded and ready to go for video applications.

The EVID 4.2 is available in a "T"-designated version with an internal 70V or 100V line transformer. Note that the price of the Electro-Voice EVID 4.2 is for a pair.

Features:

- Compact full-range loudspeaker for a broad range of installation applications
- Ideal for busy outdoor venues such as restaurants, bars, patios, and more
- Vented LF enclosure
- 1" Titanium diaphragm HF driver with neodymium magnetic structure
- Coherent Coverage Waveguide
- Full-bandwidth overload protection (LF and HF)
- Elliptical weather-resistant ABS enclosure
- Paintable surface allows you to blend it in to your space
- Magnetically shielded for video applications
- Strong-Arm Mount for easy, flexible aiming
- "T" version for 70 or 100V distributed systems
- Weighs 8.6 lbs.

Product Description

The EVID42 is perfect for a variety of environments where full-range audio is needed but space is limited: restaurants, bars, bistros, department stores, and out door venues. Offering the bass response of a much larger speaker, dual 4-inch woofers make the 4.2 a phenomenal performer. The 1-inch waveguide coupled titanium tweeter delivers controlled clean mids and highs. Combine it with the 12.1 subwoofer for an amazing listening experience. Full system protection and EV's unique Strong-Arm Mount(tm) (SAM) make the EVID 4.2 a solid choice in any environment.

EVID Systems

The ID in EVID is for innovative design of high quality foreground/background music systems. 13 models comprise the EVID series. Four surface mount speakers include the 6.2 with dual 6-inch LF drivers and a 1-inch Ti /waveguide, the 4.2 with dual 4 in. LF drivers and a 1-inch Ti /waveguide, the 3.2 with dual 3 in. LF drivers with a .75 in. Ti direct radiator. The 12.1 and 12.1p subwoofers are designed to augment and extend the fullrange model's low frequency response and completes the line.

Featuring fully sealed enclosures, the FM4.2 and FM6.2 provide consistent performance when mounted in any style room and their sealed enclosures dramatically reduce adjacent room sound leakage.

Six ceiling speaker models comprise the EVID line and include the compact powerful C4.2, The C8.2 and 8.2LP high output models, the C8.2HC controlled coverage high ceiling model, the C12.2 12-inch high performance system and the C10.1 high performance ceiling subwoofer.

Surface Mount Systems With Innovation

EVID surface mount speakers are not just another box, or trapezoidal system, EVID is different. It's unique design concept combines style with audio performance for several benefits. An aesthetic design using organic curves fits into many decors and themes, it does not look like a traditional loudspeaker. This allows better integration for a more invisible sound system, while not distracting from a commercial or theme environment. All models all available in black or white, and can easily be painted the match the decor.

Ceiling Systems For Every Application

EVid ceiling speaker systems are high performance, easy to install, visually attractive systems designed for background/foreground audio support in a wide variety of applications such as retail storefronts, hotels, auditoriums, office spaces and shopping malls. EVid systems offer specific, tailored acoustic solutions for these applications through their unique design.

NOTE: Includes SAM system and hex key.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "For home theater, bar, outdoor patio, pool area, etc. speakers you won't regret buying these speakers."
Sound: You can't go wrong with EV quality speakers. They cost a little more, but they are overbuilt in every respect - from the weather resistant design to the way they conservatively apply RMS power ratings, providing a level of durability and sound quality you can't find with lesser brands. I own a number of EV speakers (as well as both modern and vintage EV mics), including SX100+ PA speakers, the ZX1s and now the EVIDs for my outdoor patio environment. I had my system professionally installed and the AV guys were blown away by the sound. You can spend less, but you won't get more. Feature: Best: Durability - sound quality. Note: If you love bass, you will need the sub. While these put out better bass than most for their size, the physics of sound coming from dual 4" woofers equates to a 6"+ woofer - certainly good but isn't going to rattle your teeth. Mids and highs are sparkling, however, and overall dynamic range is as good as a high-end studio monitor (in fact, there's no reason these wouldn't work great for that purpose). Ease of Use: The mounting system is super strong and exceptionally versatile in positioning the speaker perfectly. Quality: You cannot beat EV speakers for quality and durability at the price, and you could spend a lot more just to match it. Value: If long term durability is in the equation, you will get years and years of use from EV speakers. Manufacturer Support: I blew one of the horns in my SX 100's - my fault -- and they replaced without an issue. The Wow Factor: Very cool look. Excellent sound. Weather resistant. Overall: They won't be lost and my Dobie will ensure they aren't stolen, but if it happened, I would replace them with EVIDs again. I would also purchase them from ZZ Sounds as they have always provided excellent pricing and great service.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds has proven to me that they have the best customer service and support of any online music store. The first amplifier I received was having some issues. Obviously not zZounds' fault. Could have been faulty from the manufacturer or damaged in shipping. Using the expedited return option I had the replacement amp sitting at my door in less than 48 hours after calling them about it. Just in time for a block of studio time I had set up. zZounds seriously came to the rescue and saved the day on this one." - customer on October 28, 2014
