Electro-Voice (EV) Launches New Model in their Mid-Size Compact Line-Array Family: XLC127DVX
June 13, 2006
Orlando, Florida (June 7th, 2006): Based on the highly successful XLC127+ Compact Line Array, Electro-Voice is pleased to introduce the XLC127DVX, a three-way, full-bandwidth line array element featuring EV’s newest DVX 3121 12-inch and DVN2065 6.5-inch woofers. The enclosure remains unchanged, featuring integrated quick-Rig™ rigging along with a high-frequency section incorporating EV’s unique “Hydra™“ plane wave generator with two ND-6 large format compression drivers. The XLC127DVX will be also available as an installation model: the XLCi127DVX incorporates simplified, cost-reduced rigging and is ideally suited for permanent installations. The XLC127DVX ships as triamp only model; a mid/high crossover network for biamp applications is an available option.
“Once you have listened to this new combination of components, you will appreciate why we decided to offer an upgraded’ version of the world’s most successful medium-size line array system.”
When asked why EV has updated a product that has established itself as industry standard, Christian Glueck, Director, Product Management, commented: “Shortly after the launch of X-Line Very Compact and its 12-inch DVX woofer-equipped XS212-LF cabinet, we received customer requests about our plans to use this new, very powerful speaker in the XLC. This led us to take a deeper look at our transducer program, resulting in the development of a brand new 12-inch LF driver-the DVX3121-and a new mid-bass driver, the DVN 6.5-inch.
“Once you have listened to this new combination of components, you will appreciate why we decided to offer an “upgraded’ version of the world’s most successful medium-size line array system. It’s not just about the 3dB more overall output: the level of sonic clarity for an arena-size system reaches new heights. To support all current customers of the XLC127+ we will offer an upgrade kit to turn an XLC127+ into an XLC 127DVX.“
