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.
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.
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.
