NAMM 2014: ALL IN THE FAMILY - AudioTechnology
Electro-Voice’s new ETX family comes as a rent-a-crowd. There are three two-way models with 10-inch, 12-inch and 15-inch bass drivers respectively, all with a precision HF titanium compression driver, a three-way model loaded with a 15-inch bass, 6.5-inch MF driver and a precision HF titanium compression driver, and finally two subs with either a 15-inch or 18-inch driver. Positioned above the ZLX and Live X families, ETX completes EV’s planned trio of portable loudspeaker series – each designed to cater for a specific, market price point. Inside each ETX enclosure are a range of features combining intelligent technology and industrial design for suitability across all applications. EV-engineered high-efficiency transducers and high-powered Class-D amplifiers, Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) waveguide design and smart FIR-Drive DSP all work together to promise high quality and precise coverage at the highest SPLs. A full-function DSP control via a single-knob interface with an LCD screen allows for easy system set-up or a choice of provided presets. Waveguides are custom-designed and optimised per ETX model. ETX should ship in the Spring of 2014 – that’ll be Spring at the other end of the planet, remember.
