The Electro-Voice EVOLVE 50 packs light weight, a low profile design, and top-shelf sound into a portable PA system. This three-component speaker system pumps 1,000 watts of Class D power through eight column-arrayed 3.5" neodymium drivers coupled with a brawny 12" subwoofer. The column and sub are connected via a sturdy bi-directional aluminum pole. The EVOLVE 50 provides excellent coverage, ensuring that everyone in your audience experiences great sound. Setup is easy, thanks to powerful digital processing that's controlled by a streamlined single-knob interface. And an onboard three-channel mixer accommodates microphones, instruments, and more. Wireless control and streaming via Bluetooth rounds out the EVOLVE 50's robust feature set.

Top-shelf sound meets lightweight design

The EVOLVE 50 is powered by a lightweight 1,000-watt Class D amplifier. A column array containing eight high-frequency drivers sits atop a wooden subwoofer enclosure. Everything is connected via a bi-directional aluminum pole, which is secured to the sub by a magnet. The column array is gravity-held onto the aluminum pole, and audio is routed internally through the components. At Music Experience, we were surprised to learn that this entire system weighs in at only 60 pounds!

Powerful DSP provides easy setup and wireless control

Setup couldn't be easier, thanks to the EVOLVE 50's onboard processing engine. You get four presets that cover typical situations that you're likely to encounter, along with a three-band EQ, five user-programmable presets, output delay, phantom power, and comprehensive metering. Onboard Bluetooth technology allows you to configure, control, and monitor up to six EVOLVE 50 systems simultaneously. You can also stream music wirelessly from your smart device — great for wireless music playback, intermissions, and musical accompaniment.

Great-sounding drivers and excellent coverage

The EVOLVE 50's column array is loaded with eight 3.5" neodymium drivers, while the ported subwoofer enclosure houses a 12" driver that delivers up to 127dB SPL and extends down to 37Hz. Eight composite waveguides provide 120° of horizontal coverage and 40° of asymmetrical vertical coverage, ensuring that every corner of the venue experiences optimal sound.

What Electro-Voice Says...

The EVOLVE 50 Portable Column System is a three component loudspeaker system powered by a 1000 W Class-D amplifier and driven by Electro-Voice's QuickSmartDSP. The system consists of a 15 mm wooden, ported, powered subwoofer enclosure that houses a 12” subwoofer capable of a functional frequency output down to 37 Hz. The bi-directional aluminum pole’s connection to the subwoofer is secured using a magnet, and the column array is gravity-held to the sub pole. The signal is internally routed to the components. Eight 3.5" neodymium drivers in the column array coupled with the 12" subwoofer delivers up to 127 dB SPL. The eight composite waveguides control high frequencies with 120° of horizontal coverage, and 40° of asymmetrical (down-facing) vertical coverage to ensure suitable output for sitting and standing audiences. The sub pole and column array come prepackaged in a carrying bag. The processing engine allows for easy setup via four presets (Music, Live, Speech, and Club), three-band EQ, five user-programmable presets (Store and Recall settings), output delay, phantom power (+15V), visual monitoring of limiter status, input level control and meters, and master volume control to ensure optimal gain structure. 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.
