Product Description

Lightweight, powerful, portable, and delivering on Electro-Voice’s 80-year reputation for superior sound and manufacturing quality, we present to you the pinnacle of column speaker design - the Electro-Voice EVOLVE 50.

Electro Voice Evolve 50 Column Line Array System Features

  • EV QuickSmart Mobile application: quickly and wirelessly configure, control, and monitor up to six EVOLVE 50 systems simultaneously, and receive immediate notification during critical performance conditions. Bluetooth® connectivity is available.
  • High-quality Bluetooth® audio streaming for background music or musical accompaniment. Bluetooth® connectivity is available.
  • Ultra-wide 120° horizontal coverage via custom designed waveguides and array-formed 40° asymmetrical vertical coverage means all acoustical energy is directed towards both sitting and standing audiences.
  • QuickSmartDSP provides best-in-class processing via EV's signature single-knob user interface with LCD.
  • Ideal for portable applications. Light weight and intuitive assembly via the magnet assisted sub pole make a quality performance easier than ever.
Full-Sized Performance and Coverage
The Electro-Voice EVOLVE 50 employs eight 3.5-inch full-range drivers and a 12-inch subwoofer, powered by a lightweight and efficient 1000 watt D-Class amplifier that provides 500 watts for the sub and 500 watts for the column array. This enables EVOLVE 50 to fill small and mid-sized venues with rich, clear audio while taking up a minimum of space in your performance area. Ultra-wide horizontal coverage of 120° and array-formed vertical dispersion of 40° is achieved via custom waveguides, resulting in exceptional clarity for your audience from left to right, front to back. There is no bad seat in the house with EVOLVE 50!

Easy Transport and Setup
Have you ever wished you could transport your entire PA system to and from the stage in just one trip? Well, your dream has just become reality thanks to EVOLVE 50’s ergonomic 3-handle design on the subwoofer and the included carry case for the sub pole and column array.

Assembly is also accomplished quickly and cleanly via the symmetrical aluminum subwoofer pole with integrated wire harness and connector. And there’s no need to worry about stability, because EVOLVE 50’s sub pole is magnetically locked in place by EV’s proprietary magnetic-assisted latching system.

Versatile Ins and Outs
EVOLVE 50’s angled user interface panel on the subwoofer provides easy access for patching in and making tonal adjustments. Here you’ll find two discrete Line/Mic Inputs on combination XLR/Balanced ¼” TRS jacks, each with their own level control. Input 1 has a convenient XLR Thru jack for passing its signal directly out to another destination.

Input 3 incorporates a Bluetooth® receiver for convenient wireless streaming of audio from any mobile device. It also has its own level control and features a pair of stereo RCA jacks and a 3.5mm jack for directly connecting an iPod, laptop audio feed, CD/DVD player, or just about any other consumer audio product.

Finally, there’s a Master Volume control for adjusting total system level, and a Mix Out on XLR jack that carries the line-level output of EVOLVE 50’s mixer to an external amplifier, powered speaker or recording device.

QuickSmartDSP
Setup of the EVOLVE 50 for specific applications is easy, thanks to EV's industry-leading QuickSmartDSP interface. Simply push and turn the dual-function Master Vol control to view your options via the large LCD screen. You can select from four tonal presets (Music, Live, Speech, Club) to get a head start on your sound, then fine-tune by adjusting the 3-band EQ. Store and recall your settings via five user-programmable presets to make the next gig even easier. Limiter status is also easily viewable on the LCD.

QuickSmartMobile App
Want to control EVOLVE 50 from front-of-house using your iPad or smartphone? No problem. Need to quickly configure up to six QuickSmartDSP-equipped loudspeakers simultaneously? Done. You’ll even receive immediate notification in the improbable event that your system experiences critical performance issues.

Very High Quality - Lives Up to the Hype
What is your opinion of this product?
I am very impressed by this system. It is small. It is loud and the sound quality is very good. I was surprised by how loud we were able to run the system and never came close to clipping. I used two Evolve 50's with a 4 piece band and the system, with its super wide dispersion of sound, filled the entire room and made mixing easy and fun. The system produces a good amount of low end as well. This is a great system and compares favorably to the other small line array systems I have heard.

Great PA Product
What is your opinion of this product?
I used a pair of the Evolve50's for a wedding gig at a good-sized community center - similar in size to most hotel ballrooms, maybe a bit bigger, with a high ceiling - and they did not disappoint. Crowd size was right around 300. I had a full 4-piece rock band running thru them for a couple hours and then DJ'd the rest of the night. The Evolve systems received a lot of attention and many compliments from attendees concerning both looks and sound quality. The low-end response is impressive compared to similar models and the top end is very crisp and clean. I was also pleasantly surprised at how much volume I could push while DJ'ing later in the night without any worry or signs of clipping, all while sounding great! The app is both useful and incredibly easy to use (and FREE!). Set up and tear down is even easier. If you're looking for an easy, full-sounding portable line array PA, Evolve50 is the way to go!

Great and convenient, but Don't believe the hype!
What is your opinion of this product?
These speakers are great and I love how convenient they are to set up, but I keep hearing that they are great for 200+ person events and NO they are not. These are great for 100 people or less events and really bump. Too many bodies will absorb the sound! The app that controls the speakers is amazing and very convenient especially if your speakers are clipping. They are worth it and get them, but I am giving it 4 stars because they are too hyped for bigger events and won't work great. Love them though!
