Electro-Voice EVOLVE 50 Column PA

The Electro-Voice EVOLVE 50 Portable Column System is a three component loudspeaker system powered by a 1000 W Class-D amplifier and driven by Electro-Voice's QuickSmartDSP.

The system consists of a 15 mm wooden, ported, powered subwoofer enclosure that houses a 12" subwoofer capable of a functional frequency output down to 37 Hz.

The bi-directional aluminum pole's connection to the subwoofer is secured using a magnet, and the column array is gravity-held to the sub pole. The signal is internally routed to the components.

Eight 3.5" neodymium drivers in the column array coupled with the 12" subwoofer delivers up to 127 dB SPL. The eight composite waveguides control high frequencies with 120* of horizontal coverage, and 40* of asymmetrical (down-facing) vertical coverage to ensure suitable output for sitting and standing audiences. The sub pole and column array come prepackaged in a carrying bag.

See how the EVOLVE 50 fits together in this video from Electro-Voice:


The processing engine allows for easy setup via four presets (Music, Live, Speech, and Club), three-band EQ, five user-programmable presets (Store and Recall settings), output delay, phantom power (+15V), visual monitoring of limiter status, input level control and meters, and master volume control to ensure optimal gain structure.

The Electro-Voice QuickSmart Mobile application utilizes Bluetooth(R) Low Energy (BTLE) technology for the wireless configuration, control, and monitoring of up to six EVOLVE 50 systems simultaneously. High resolution Bluetooth(R) audio streaming adds convenience for wireless music playback in breakout rooms, intermission, and musical accompaniment.

Features:

- Clean, compact design - built to blend in: Lightweight column speaker array with cable-free connection quickly secures pole to sub.
- Easy transport and setup: Ergonomically designed handles on both the array and the sub to enhance portability. Angled interface gives user easy access to make adjustments and connections on input panel.
- Real PA performance: Legendary EV audio quality via eight 3.5-inch full-range drivers and a 12-inch subwoofer, powered by a three-channel amp for high output. Cutting-edge components and tuning provide full-sized sound in a super-streamlined, plug-and-play format.
- Wide, even coverage: Custom waveguides provide ultra-wide 120* horizontal coverage and array-formed 40* asymmetrical vertical pattern control. No energy is wasted -- exceptional audience coverage and clarity from front to back.
- High-quality Bluetooth audio: For convenient streaming of background music or musical accompaniment direct from any mobile device.
- Wireless control and monitoring: With the the Bluetooth QuickSmartMobile app, you can quickly configure up to six EVOLVE 50 systems simultaneously, and receive immediate notification during critical performance conditions.
- Easy DSP presets: QuickSmartDSP provides best-in-class processing via EV's signature single-knob user interface with LCD. Easy setup via four presets (Music, Live, Speech, Club), three-band EQ, five user-programmable presets, output delay, phantom power, input level control and metering, and master volume control to optimize gain structure.

"Saving my back while vastly improving the quality of my gigs!"
Overall: Stepped up to this a big hesitantly due to the investment. Have been using 2 Behringer PA which weigh about as much as a Volkswagen for live band gigs, DJ work and Karaoke work. After a Halloween DJ gig where people were tripping over the PA stands I decided to bite the bullet. And boy am I glad I did! With clean mids and highs, deep responsive bass and very low noise (no hiss!). 1 of these replaced and easily outperformed the 2 units I was replacing. Infact, due to the internal DSP and 2 XLR inputs, when doing DJ work I was able to not use the mixer I had been for EQ and processing and plug directly into the unit with my wireless MIC and Laptop thereby saving a fair amount of time setting up and tearing down. Small venue/low volume event was fantastic due to no hiss. I really want a second one, not because I NEED it for volume but just to add to the "fullness" and spread of the sound. Also, using the Bluetooth connection to setup and dial in the sound was a fantastic bonus. While I do wish it had some effects for vocals like the Bose, but I am not complaining because at this price point that would not keep my from purchasing. More than once I have received praise from clients and listeners for the quality of sound and not since the original Bose Acoustimass units from so long ago have I seen people as WOWED but so much sound coming from something so unassuming.

"Dream array system!"
Overall: I've been a DJ since 1989 and my back, shoulders, etc can attest to the fact that speakers, amps, and everything else associated with being a DJ can take its toll on your body. I had to find a new speaker system that would provide amazing sound, would be considerably lighter than my current system, and would be easy to set up and tear down. If this sounds like you or your situation then look no further than the EV Evolve 50 array system! I honestly couldn't be happier because it easily accomplished all three requirements I listed above. My customers (weddings, corporate events, and private parties) have all marveled at how good the sound is, how loud (yet clear) it is, and how sharp it looks compared to the traditional speakers on tripods. Seriously, you will be hard pressed to find anything better that is even remotely close to this price point. FYI - I've used almost every brand of speaker over the last 29 years of being a DJ, so I don't give this praise lightly. I, like many of you, have spent money over the years on speakers that didn't last more than a few months or simply didn't sound good...even though they cost an arm and a leg! Do yourself, your body, and your customers a favor and try this system out. After all, with zZounds' amazing return policy, what have you got to lose?
