Compact, portable loudspeaker with high efficiency and high output for live sound, speech reproduction, and DJ/AV/institutional use
Handles up to 300W continuous power (1200W peak)
RMD (Ring-Mode Decoupling) for increased intelligibility
1" exit DH2010A high-frequency compression driver equipped with a titanium diaphragm and convex-drive TimePath phasing plug structure for smooth and extended high-frequency response
Compression driver voice coil is coupled to the diaphragm with Electro-Voice's exclusive Resonant Drive technology, which increases and smooths the high-frequency response and reduces the amount of internal equalization required for flat-frequency response
Molded-in, constant-directivity horn with Varipath throat geometry to help the driver output to the corners of the room, areas not described in the usual specifications of horizontal and vertical coverage angles
65 x 65° uniform coverage pattern—sound quality is well maintained off-axis, even at 45° off-axis (a 90° total coverage angle)
Features Electro-Voice's PRO circuit, which prevents against accidental overdrive to the compression driver and improves system reliability—if the input power to the high-frequency driver exceeds the nominal rating, the protection circuit is activated and reduces the power delivered to the driver by 6 dB until input power is reduced to a safe level
Sturdy high-impact polyproylene trapezoidal cabinet with steel grille
Integrated 1-3/8" pole socket and four M8 attachment points enable versatile mounting and installation
Bottom-mounted rubber feet and top-panel mating sockets allow secure stacking

Really natural sounding speaker in a tough but lightweight cabinet. Versatli can be a floor wedge, stuck on a stick or flown with the optional eyebolts or mounting bracket.

I have used these for several years, and have been listening to various pairs for over 10 years. Last I knew the first pair I heard were still on the road. The enclosure is very well designed and extremely easy to carry. Electro-Voice designed the carry handle based on suitcase handle research, and they are the easiest to carry speakers I have ever encountered. I can carry one in each hand with ease. As to sound quality, these speakers are so accurate that some people don't know what to think at first. I have never found a full range cabinet that had a clearer or more accurate sound. Having installed these in various buildings, and traveling with my own pair of SX300E's I have found these speakers to be so versatile and reliable, that I rarely if ever use an EQ even in installations. These are a bargain at any price, and a great addition to any system.

Best In Its Class

I've been a JBL person for many years, but I must say that putting this speaker next to my JBl JRX112M (the same speaker configuration), blew me away. I never thought JBL could be surpassed. I was wrong. This EV speaker did it. As a pro musician for many years, I rate this at the top 3 speakers in it's class, if not the top of the heap. I love the light weight for transporting, as I have to move my equipment 5 nights per week in Las Vegas. The sound reproduction is great. It actually put out more volume at the same mixer setting than the JBL. There are two things I would like to see changed. The handles should be on top (as the JBL), not on the sides. This will make the speaker easier to grab and load into a vehicle, instead of bending over and reaching for the handle on the side. Another change I would like to see, is that the cabinet would have both Speakon and 1/4 inputs, as some mixers don't have Speakon outputs, therefore requiring you to buy an adaptor. The JBL has both Speakon and 1/4 inputs. Otherwise, this speaker is an excellent choice...
