The new ETX Powered Loudspeaker family builds upon the 85-year heritage of Electro-Voice audio engineering to offer these advanced professional powered loudspeakers — a versatile, compact and high-performance choice for house of worship (HOW) applications.

The professional, powered loudspeakers from Electro-Voice are designed for both installed and portable applications. They offer a breakthrough combination of intelligent technology and innovative design for superior power and performance.

Unique features include a single-knob DSP interface with LCD, FIR-Drive performance optimization and signal synchronized transducers (SST) waveguide design. Complete, full-function DSP control is offered via a unique single-knob interface. An LCD screen offers easy system set-up and monitoring — location/application EQ presets (e.g. tripod, mounted, suspended, live, music, speech), limiter status, input level controls/meters and master volume control to ensure optimal gain structure. Parametric EQ enables for more precise configuration. Subs feature a preset for true cardioid performance.

A highly versatile choice for houses of worship, live entertainment venues and rental companies, the ETX Powered Loudspeaker family features technologies from EV concert/touring systems. EV-engineered high-efficiency transducers and high-powered Class-D amplifiers, Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) waveguide design and FIR-Drive DSP all work together to provide world-class sound quality and precise coverage at the highest SPLs.

Ergonomic, durable and compact the ETX Powered Loudspeaker features a 13-ply birch plywood enclosure finished with EVCoat. Eight mounting points provide permanent installation capabilities (full-range models). Custom die-cast aluminum pole cups, handles and hardware are also included.

Three two-way models (10-inch, 12-inch and 15-inch, all with a precision HF titanium compression driver), a three-way model (15-inch with a 6.5-inch MF driver and a precision HF titanium compression driver) and two subs (15-inch and 18-inch drivers) are available. State-of-the-art components deliver EV sound quality: 1800 W (subs) and 2000 W (full-range) Class-D power amplifiers with integrated DSP produce high SPLs utilizing high levels of sensitivity and low-distortion transducers (including DVX and SMX series woofers and precision DH3-B HF titanium compression drivers).

EV’s FIR-Drive employs the latest Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter technology to optimize transducer linearity. Advanced limiter algorithms provide independent peak and thermal transducer protection.
