UK’S Dimension Audio Steps up to Next Level with Electro-Voice

March 9th, 2007

Dimension Audio will also become one of the first customers in the UK to take delivery of the new XLC127DVX cabinets, featuring all-new drive units. Dimension’s order includes EV XLC215 and X-subs, and a number of the new Tour Grade series amplifiers, launched a few months ago.

Located within the Crawley HQ of parent company Creative Technology, Dimension is solidly established as a unique resource within the Avesco Group, and now expanding into other market areas. Head of audio Mark Boden explains the reasons behind the purchase: “As a PA provider, we wanted to expand our services to cater for larger events, particularly targeting the live music sector. The XLC system, whilst suiting our needs now, is easy to expand. XLC is priced competitively which allows us to be competitive as we build up our business in new areas as well as consolidating in the corporate events market.“

Boden explained that “we already have line array cabinets in our inventory, but the decision was taken to add Electro-Voice XLC after a very persuasive demo by Shuttlesound! It is easy to rig, and interconnects very nicely, and, because it is so scalable, we can effectively add more cabinets to the system as the workload increases.“

Shuttlesound, the UK distributor of Electro-Voice products, packaged the new XLC127DVX additions to the XLC line with EV’s latest amplifier products, the TG Series. Dimension Audio will be using the TG5 and TG7 models, superior state-of-the-art power amps based on a three-stage class H Grounded Bridge design and intelligent switching power supply technology. In a lean and mean 2U housing, and weighing in at under 15kg, they provide an astounding 2 x 3500 watts (TG7) and 2 x 1900 watts (TG5). Both models incorporate micro controllers and illuminated LCD displays to facilitate managing their enormous capabilities. The Tour Grade power amplifiers also provide slots for IRIS-Net™ DSP modules, such as the new RCM-26, to realise transparent network control and supervision.

Dimension Audio will be one of the first Electro-Voice users in Europe to take delivery of the latest additions to the XLC range, based on the all-new DVX transducer platform: the XLC127DVX is the new main component used to create an XLC line array featuring EV’s latest DVX woofers. Starting with a minimum of four cabinets, a reasonably sized array uses six to eight boxes, with a maximum of 16 used for larger arenas. The three-way axis-asymmetric design includes a single DVX3121 12-inch low-frequency/mid-bass woofer; the mid-frequency bandpass is comprised of two 6.5“ horn-loaded DVN2065 woofers in a vertical array.

The XLC127DVX utilizes two ND6 (3“ voice-coil) neodymium compression drivers loaded on two Hydra™ plane wave generators. With a horizontal coverage of 120°, the XLC system accurately covers wide areas while maintaining excellent imaging and lobe-free coverage. The XLC127DVX is designed for triamp operation; to allow for biamp operation, an internal crossover for mid-bass and high frequencies is available as an accessory.
