Overview

This highly portable, column-style PA system delivers an uncompromising combination of low-profile aesthetics and superior audio performance. Designed for quick and easy assembly, the EVOLVE 50 delivers up to 1,000 watts of room-filling sound virtually anywhere you need it. The symmetrical aluminum subwoofer pole with an integrated wire assembly makes setup a breeze, while a magnetic assist latch securely locks the sub pole in place.

The full-range column array of eight 3.5 in. neodymium drivers are directed using custom-designed waveguides for consistent 120° coverage. Providing the low-end punch for the EVOLVE 50 is a 12 in. ferrite woofer, which is housed in a ported, wooden subwoofer enclosure for optimal acoustic performance. A Class-D amplifier provides up to 1,000 watts of peak output power, distributing 500W to the subwoofer and 500W to the column array.

The input panel features EV’s industry-leading QuickSmartDSP interface—allowing intuitive navigation of system parameters via an LCD with single-knob control—as well as multiple options for signal routing and inputs.

The new Electro-Voice QuickSmart Mobile application utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE) technology for the wireless configuration, control, and monitoring of up to six EVOLVE 50 systems simultaneously. High-resolution Bluetooth audio streaming adds convenience for wireless music playback in breakout rooms, intermission, and musical accompaniment.

Electro-Voice quality and testing procedures far exceed the industry norm to yield efficient and effective electro-acoustic performance. The result is the creation of components that deliver an accurate, linear response at the system’s highest output levels. When applied to EVOLVE 50, this engineering philosophy results in a system that brings a new sonic benchmark to the column speaker segment, all packaged in a sleek and portable enclosure that blends into the background in any application from a classy lounge to a wedding reception.

Comments about Electro-Voice Evolve 50 Portable Linear Column Array Loudspeaker:

I've extensively used the Bose system, but needed another cheaper option as a secondary system. I bought and returned the Turbosound system(too muddy and cheap feeling) and tested the JBL system(too scooped) only to finally give the EV a listen. Wow was I blown away. The Bose and JBL both have a hifi and bright quality to the sound that may work for some people, but the EV sounds straight up like a large venue PA. It's full, punchy, and just clear enough on the top end. This is hands down the best sounding column system I have used. The Bose offers far more options in terms of inputs and effects but you are paying for that as well. This would pair well with something like the Behringer X Air mixer/Ipad if you needed more input options. The throw is pretty wide as well. It's not quite as wide as the Bose, but beats out the other options. Phantom on the two combo inputs is a plus!

The column has magnets that hold the pieces together better than other systems like the turbosound. Subwoofer isn't TOO heavy but the weight is definitely worth it for the sound. The two column pieces fit nicely into a gig bag that's provided. While it may not have as many inputs or features as the Bose or JBL, the punchy and full sound more than make up for it. Would highly recommend.

    Comments about Electro-Voice Evolve 50 Portable Linear Column Array Loudspeaker:

    I used this unit (one) last night in the same room that I have used the Fishman SA220 and two EV ZLX 12's. The difference was noticed by many. I play solo acoustic and there was plenty of power. The complains about the Fishman were that there was no low end. The unit does not have reverb so I used a mixer with reverb and compression. It's very portable. The sub is about 45lbs and the top units carries nicely in a case with the pole that is also the connector. I recommend at least checking it out.

          I bought this for my 11 year old son, but I love this little guitar. Not sure I prefer my baby Taylor over the Luna. Maybe we just got a great one, but if they are consistently this good, you can't go wrong with this as a travel guitar, beginner, or 2nd guitar.
