Electro-Voice EVOLVE 30M Portable Column Array PA System (Black)
Refined industrial design, professional-grade EV-engineered components and premium build quality – super-quick setup and single-trip portability in a system that looks as good as it sounds. All set the EVOLVE 30M apart from other systems at its price point. The full-range column array and its six lightweight 2.8" neodymium drivers provide ultra-wide 120° coverage via proprietary waveguides; array-formed 40° asymmetrical vertical coverage ensures acoustic output is directed towards both sitting and standing audience members. The array enclosure is constructed from a durable composite material and incorporates an ergonomic aluminum handle. It is acoustically optimized using four tuning ports hidden out of sight on the rear of the enclosure. A 10" subwoofer is housed in a 15 mm wood enclosure with a high-efficiency laminar-flow vent design, for enhanced rigidity and acoustical performance. The array and sub are connected via a two-piece symmetrical aluminum pole with internal wiring and magnetically assisted latching. An advanced Class-D amplifier provides up to 1000 W of power: 500 W to the subwoofer and 500 W to the column array. The speakers are protected by a black powder-coated 18-gauge steel grille. Combined, these elements generate a genuinely impressive performance-to-size ratio in an elegant form factor that looks as good as it sounds. QuickSmart DSP allows navigation of system parameters via an LCD with single-knob control, 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 and Recall settings), phantom power, visual monitoring of limiter status, input level control and meters, and a master volume control to optimize gain structure.
Developed in collaboration with the world-class audio electronics engineering team at EV's sibling brand Dynacord, the integrated fully featured, fully configurable digital mixer has multiple inputs (4x XLR/TRS combo mic/line inputs, 1x XLR/TRS combo stereo line input, 1x RCA, 1x 3.5 mm stereo, 1x Hi-Z instrument input) with professional-grade preamps and mix functions. The mixer can be controlled via the QuickSmart Mobile app or via the single-knob/LCD interface. Independent channel aux sends and Hi-Z and foot switch inputs are included for flexible system configuration, and a range of onboard studio-quality effects (30 presets, including chorus, delay, flange and reverb, via two FX channels) add myriad options for fine-tuning. Along with the built-in mixer, these help to reduce setup time -- and on-stage clutter -- by minimizing the need for external effects pedals and processors. The onboard effects can be controlled via the QuickSmart Mobile app or via the single-knob/LCD interface. High-resolution, low-latency Bluetooth streaming ensures excellent results for music playback or accompaniment.
