Electro-Voice EVOLVE 30M Powered Column PA System

With ultra-wide coverage, wireless control, and an 8-channel digital mixer built in, the all-in-one EVOLVE 30M PA system is great for events and small bands.
The Electro-Voice EVOLVE 30M is designed to deliver a significant step up in all-around performance for a column system in its size/price category. It includes an eight-channel digital mixer, studio-quality onboard effects, and remote control of all audio, effects and mix functions via the next-generation Electro-Voice QuickSmart Mobile application (available via the Apple Store and on Google Play).


See how guitarist Cory Wong uses the EVOLVE 30M to set up fast:


Highly Portable PA

The system includes a speaker array, a two-piece pole connector, an array and pole backpack carry case, and a powered subwoofer -- all made to pack up and assemble quickly, look great on stage, and withstand real-world wear and tear.

All this makes it an outstanding choice for solo musicians/performers and smaller musical groups and venues -- or any application that needs an easy-to-use, highly portable and lightweight system with extraordinary connectivity, control, coverage and output relative to its footprint.

For events such as weddings, the mixer allows the same system to support the various mics and inputs required for participants, musicians, and background music during the day, all with plenty of power to fill the dance floor for a DJ set or live performance in the evening.

Refined industrial design, professional-grade EV-engineered components and premium build quality -- super-quick setup and single-trip portability in a system that looks as good as it sounds.

Acoustically Optimized

All read more these features set the EVOLVE 30M apart from other systems at its price point. The full-range column array and its six lightweight 2.8" neodymium drivers provide ultra-wide 120 coverage via proprietary waveguides; array-formed 40 degrees asymmetrical vertical coverage ensures acoustic output is directed towards both sitting and standing audience members. The array enclosure is constructed from a durable composite material and incorporates an ergonomic aluminum handle. It is acoustically optimized using four tuning ports hidden out of sight on the rear of the enclosure.

A 10" subwoofer is housed in a 15 mm wood enclosure with a high-efficiency laminar-flow vent design, for enhanced rigidity and acoustical performance. The array and sub are connected via a two-piece symmetrical aluminum pole with internal wiring and magnetically assisted latching. A Class-D amplifier provides up to 1000 W of output power: 500 W to the subwoofer and 500 W to the column array. The speakers are protected by a black powder-coated 18-gauge steel grille. Combined, these elements generate a genuinely impressive performance-to-size ratio in an elegant form factor that looks as good as it sounds.

QuickSmart DSP

Industry-leading QuickSmart DSP lets you optimize every detail of your sound via the control panel, or via the app from across the room. QuickSmart DSP allows navigation of system parameters via an LCD with single-knob control, as well as multiple options for signal routing and inputs. Functions include four presets (Music, Live, Speech, Club), three-band system EQ (low, mid, high), seven-band graphic EQ (in Mixer mode), five user-programmable presets (Store and Recall settings), phantom power, visual monitoring of limiter status, input level control and meters, and a master volume control to optimize gain structure.

All of the above audio functions can also be controlled via the QuickSmart Mobile app -- precisely adjust your system's sound from across the room, hearing what the audience hears. The fully configurable app has an intuitive, easy-to-read user interface and utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE) technology for the adjustment and monitoring of all parameters of up to six EVOLVE 30M systems simultaneously. EVOLVE 30M offers simple or sophisticated operation according to application, making great sound easy for users of all levels.

The evolve 30m is light, powerful, sounds great. I do a solo show playing acoustic guitar & vocal while also playing kick and snare drum triggers with my feet. So, I needed at least 4 channels plus 2 more to play music during my breaks. This replaced a ton of gear in 1 shot for me. I was bringing 1) a mixer 2) a subwoofer, 3) speaker stands 4) a pair of small PA mains. 5) the power supplies, cords, and cables to hook all those up! This thing meant I wouldn't need ANY of that stuff anymore! The mixer app is a little basic looking esthetically, but it does the job well. It's simple and intuitive. The effects (reverbs etc) are pretty decent too. So I can quickly dial in EQ, compression, FX's, and levels and get on with my show. I worried if it would sound good enough, big enough, loud enough? I am a few gigs in, onenof which at an outdoor tiki bar and this thing cranks. I am happy I took the leap! I think even up to a good power trio band could do well with a pair of these and some stage monitors in most clubs.
