The X1 system combines innovative new technologies and time-saving features to advance the state of high-end sound reinforcement. The compact design of the X1 enables its use in a wide variety of applications.
Mid-Band Hydra (MBH) Superior Box Coupling
The 12" SMX woofer in the X1 is coupled to an EV-exclusive Mid-Band Hydra device that effectively emulates the acoustic behavior of a double line of four 3" point sources to deliver superior mid-band coupling of the array while maintaining the efficiency, power, and bandwidth of a 12" transducer.
Wavefront-Shaping Circular Hydra (WCH) Extended Linear HF Performance
The revolutionary HF section in the X1 incorporates two new ND2R ring-exit high-output 2" titanium compression drivers coupled to a pair of WCH constant energy planar wave generators on a 90° waveguide optimized for high efficiency, uniform pattern control, and smooth, extended, linear response. The ring-coupled ND2R and WCH circular hydra eliminates wave distortion, maximizing the acoustic output of this medium-format compression driver with in?phase summation past 16 kHz.
Integrated Rigging System (IRS) Quick Setup
A captive twist-lock multi-angle arraying system designed by EV to simplify the rigging of any size of array, significantly reducing load in/out time and production costs. IRS has been engineered with the flexibility to deploy a system using the two most common methods of array set-up:
- Compression method by using a pull-up kit (Not included)
- Fixed angles locked by using secondary rigging pins (included)
- 12" SMX2121 LF and Two 2" ND2R HF transducer
- Passive, Biamp configuration
- Compact design
- State of high-end sound reinforcement
- EVCoat-coated birch plywood enclosure
