10” Two-Way Powered Loudspeaker
• 10-inch LF SMX woofer • 1.25-inch HF titanium compression driver • 2000 W Class-D power amplifier with integrated FIR-Drive DSP • 134 dB peak SPL
The new ETX Powered Loudspeaker family builds upon the industry-leading innovation and 85-year heritage of Electro-Voice audio engineering to offer the most advanced professional-grade products for an array of applications.
A versatile choice for live entertainment venues, rental companies, pro musicians and DJs, and installed sound, the family offers technologies from EV concert/touring systems. 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.
Positioned above the ZLX and Live X families respectively, ETX Powered Loudspeakers complete a trio of recent EV portable loudspeaker offerings—each of which was designed to bring best-in-class performance to its price point.
Inside each low-profile, tour-grade wood enclosure are a host of unique new features that set ETX Powered Loudspeakers apart, combining intelligent technology and innovative industrial design for spectacular results across all applications. EVengineered high-efficiency transducers and high-powered Class-D amplifiers, Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) waveguide design and smart FIR-Drive DSP all work together to provide peerless EV sound quality and precise coverage at the highest SPLs.
EV’s FIR-Drive utilizes the latest Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter technology to optimize transducer linearity. Advanced limiter algorithms for independent peak and thermal transducer protection.
Complete full-function DSP control via a single-knob interface. LCD screen for 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 allows for more precise configuration. Subs feature a preset for true cardioid performance.
EV-patented Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) waveguide design provides precise and consistent coverage across all system configurations. Waveguides are customdesigned and optimized per model.
State-of-the-art components deliver the legendary EV sound quality and reliability the pros trust: 1800 W (subs) and 2000 W (full-range) Class-D power amplifiers with integrated DSP produce high SPLs utilizing high-sensitivity, low-distortion transducers (including DVX and SMX series woofers and DH3-B HF titanium compression drivers).
Lightweight, ergonomic, durable and compact 18-mm, 13-ply birch plywood enclosures finished with EVCoat. Eight mounting points for permanent installations (full-range models). Custom die-cast aluminum pole cups, handles and hardware.
• Unique to the industry, with multiple design and utility patents. • Third generation (after Tour X FM and ZLX models). • Waveguides custom-designed and optimized per model. – This allows EV to design the waveguide to have uniform beamwidth response throughout the waveguide’s passband and allows a smooth transition between woofer beamwidth and waveguide beamwidth. – This also allows EV to use much larger waveguides without making the speaker larger. – This optimization also achieves a flat sound power— critical to great sound in any application. • The waveguide is placed forward in the enclosure to help physically time-align the LF and HF transducers, minimizing the need for latency correction via DSP. • Placing the port under the waveguide positions it in its ideal acoustic location in the enclosure without spacing the woofer and driver apart. The port location minimizes distortion and standing waves inside the loudspeaker. • All waveguides are optimized using advanced simulation software and proprietary algorithms for precise control and lowest distortion.
•EV focuses on creating high-sensitivity woofers and compression drivers that have linear frequency response and high power handling (competitors use smaller motor designs to save cost). •The small diaphragm, convex-loaded phase plug and tight manufacturing tolerances of the DH3-B allows for high frequency extension to 20 kHz and beyond, and the high-sensitivity design achieves maximum SPL requirements similar to competitive large-format compression drivers. •The motor designs are optimized using advanced modeling software and tested extensively, ensuring the transducers have low distortion at full output. • All ETX Powered Loudspeaker woofers use Faraday rings for significantly better vocal reproduction. •The woofers not only have high power handling but also feature a robust mechanical design to ensure long-term reliability. •EV focuses on engineering transducers with linear frequency response, minimizing the need for additional equalization.
•All ETX Powered Loudspeaker components are designed from the ground up by Electro-Voice. No off-theshelf components are used. • The handles, pole cups and amplifier chassis are die-cast aluminum, not plastic. • 18-mm, 13-ply birch plywood with EVCoat is used throughout the product line, a combination that offers best-inclass looks and durability. • In addition to industry-standard pink noise abuse tests, all models must survive EV’s proprietary 1000-hour torture test that uses real-world signals driven beyond full output.
• System DSP presets support quick and easy setup via selections for type of use, crossover frequencies and top/sub combinations. • Subwoofers include a DSP preset for “true cardioid” configuration. • Employs the same proprietary PAL and TEMP limiters developed for EV concert/touring loudspeakers. – Not all limiters are created equal: EV spends a lot of design effort on making sure its processing is as acoustically transparent as possible. – The limiters are displayed on the rear LCD and on the front-grille LED. • Employs the same proprietary FIR-Drive developed for EV concert/ touring loudspeakers. The filters are linear phase and use extremely steep crossover slopes. • Boundary compensation filters are included so that a loudspeaker sounds the same whether it is used as a floor monitor, on a tripod or suspended from a ceiling. • User-adjustable features not found on any other loudspeakers in this class, including delay out to several hundred feet, three-band parametric equalization, polarity and multiple high-pass crossover points. • The Class-D design of the amplifier is highly efficient and features blower-controlled thermal management, allowing it to work in hot environments. The fan is of a very quiet design and does not turn on under normal circumstances. • Lockout mode helps prevent casual users from changing settings.
