Electro-Voice EVERSE 8 Battery-Powered PA Speaker

A compact, weatherized speaker with battery-powered convenience, Electro-Voice's EVERSE 8 delivers real pro-audio performance in an under-17-pound package.

The first battery-powered loudspeaker from Electro-Voice and the first weatherized model of its type, EVERSE 8 takes advantage of decades of Electro-Voice engineering expertise -- along with the latest advancements in technology -- to provide a truly portable and truly wireless audio experience at a price and performance level unmatched by current comparable products on the market.

Whether used for live music, vocal reinforcement and/or audio playback, musicians, DJs, production/rental companies, fitness/activity instructors and other professional, amateur and recreational users can all benefit from EVERSE 8's superior sound quality, user-friendliness and all-in-one PA system design a concept that opens-up real pro-audio performance for a wider range of users than ever before.

Real Pro-Audio Performance

With a maximum SPL rating of 121 dB and wide, even, 100 x 100 degree coverage, EVERSE 8's capabilities defy its compact form factor and set uncompromising new benchmarks for its product segment. Core components include an 8" woofer mounted using EV's patented SST (Signal Synchronized Transducers) port design, and a high-output titanium tweeter mounted onto a custom constant-directivity waveguide. And, as with all Electro-Voice portable loudspeakers, EVERSE 8's system reliability is verified with extensive music abuse and endurance testing.

Battery-Powered Convenience

EVERSE 8 is powered by a custom-designed high-capacity Li-ion battery pack, fully optimized for audio read more use and providing plentiful power for up to 12 hours of run time. Protection circuitry reduces the risk of the battery discharging to such a low voltage that it can no longer be recharged for example, after long periods in storage. Tool-free screws make removing the battery pack effortless. Uncompromising sound quality, unplugged.

IP43-Rated Weatherized Design

In combination with the rugged polypropylene enclosure, use of the included weatherized input cover allows EVERSE 8 to meet the IP43 rating (water resistant for splashes and light rain) when running on battery power and while Bluetooth streaming. Built-in feet with no-skid rubber pads ensure the system stays put. Bring EVERSE 8 outside for busking, marching band practice, or the backyard BBQ, or wherever a PA is needed, whatever the forecast.

Compact & Lightweight

Every detail of EVERSE 8 is designed to maximize easy lifting and transportation all while reinforcing EV's reputation for real-world durability. An ergonomically designed soft-touch handle and premium lightweight construction make it a breeze to move and mount EVERSE 8. Pack it into the optional tote bag and head out to the gig. It's the all-in-one pro-audio system you can grab to go.

Expandable Functionality

The integrated 12 V DC port provides convenient power from the EVERSE 8 battery, perfect for powering a wireless microphone system. Attach the optional accessory tray to the top of an EVERSE 8 to secure receiver hardware in place. A charging port is included for mobile devices if a top-up is needed when streaming. Place on a tripod for a longer throw, set long-side down as a stage wedge using the 55 monitor angle, or use upright with the 30 kick-back angle to project up off the performance area. For stereo setups, EVERSE 8 is equipped for Bluetooth true wireless stereo streaming. Flexible features for a truly self-contained setup,
input to output.

"Amazing little speaker that rivals the Bose S1 Pro"

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I did a comparison between the similar Bose S1 Pro and this EV EVERSE, seemingly EV's answer to the Bose in the mini battery powered bluetooth PA speaker market and I must say I was blown away by the sheer amount of power this little puppy has, as well as all the additional features not found on the S1 Pro! In comparison to the Bose, the EVERSE not only has way more headroom, but also has an 7 band EQ on top of bass, mid, & treble controls for each channel (including bluetooth) as well as far the master channel. Out of the box, the Bose definitely sounded more hi fi with a much fuller low end than the EV, however, after a few days of really dialing in the EV, I was able to get it to not only come close to the sound of the Bose, but even surpass it in terms of overall fidelity. While the Bose definitely has some other pluses over the EV, such as automatically detecting the speaker orientation including if it's mounted on a pole or not (this must be manually adjusted on the EV), the amount of adjustability and customization the EV offers is nothing short of astounding for a speaker of this size and weight. Highly recommended!

Sound
Sounds like a micro version of it's bigger brothers, but with the adjustability of it's higher end siblings.

Features
Hands down the 7 band EQ for me!

Ease of Use
For me it was not plug and play in terms of sounding it's best out of the box. While it didn't sound read more bad at all with it's default settings, it took a copious amount of EQ carving to really bring it to life.
