Electro-Voice is expanding its Evolve series with the launch of the Evolve 50M column loudspeaker system, featuring QuickSmart Link digital audio and control technology, an onboard mixer, DSP and effects. The Evolve 50M is targeted at bands/musicians, A/V rental companies, DJs and any application where true professional audio performance is required in a super-compact and portable package.

Electro-Voice Evolve 50MAvailable in black or white finishes, the Evolve 50M uses eight 3.5-inch neodymium drivers for ultra-wide, full-bandwidth 120° coverage via proprietary waveguides. Array-formed 40° asymmetrical vertical coverage ensures acoustic output is directed towards both sitting and standing audience members. A 12-inch subwoofer is housed in a 15mm wood enclosure with a high-efficiency laminar-flow vent design, for enhanced rigidity and acoustical performance. The array and sub are connected via a symmetrical aluminium pole with internal wiring and magnetically assisted latching. The speakers are protected by a black powder-coated 18-gauge steel grille, and an array/pole carry case is included. An advanced class-D amplifier provides up to 1kW of power.

The system’s ‘M’ designation refers to its fully-featured, fully-configurable eight-channel digital mixer. Developed in collaboration with the audio electronics engineering team at Electro-Voice’s sibling brand Dynacord, the mixer has multiple inputs (four XLR/TRS combo mic/line inputs, XLR/TRS combo stereo line input, RCA, 3.5mm stereo, Hi-Z instrument input) with professional-grade preamps and mix functions. High-resolution, low-latency Bluetooth streaming accommodates music playback or accompaniment.

Independent channel aux sends and a foot switch input are also included, and a range of effects (30 presets, including chorus, delay, flange and reverb, via two FX channels) add options for musicians to fine-tune their tone.

New from Electro-Voice, QuickSmart Link makes it easy to combine two Evolve 50Ms for use with larger bands or gigs needing more inputs. Simply link the systems together via an Ethernet cable to create an uncompressed digital audio/control connection, pair both systems to a single mobile device via the QuickSmart Mobile app (available via the Apple App Store and on Google Play), and get full mix control of both systems. For applications requiring fewer inputs, but still requiring a mixer and stereo output, the Evolve 50M can be matched with an Evolve 50 via the Mix Out XLR.

The Evolve 50M’s control panel features Electro-Voice’s QuickSmart DSP, which allows navigation and adjustment of all audio, effects and mix functions via an LCD with single-knob control or via the QuickSmart Mobile app, 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/recall settings), phantom power, visual monitoring of limiter status, input level control and meters, and a master volume control to optimise gain structure.
