Electro-Voice introduced the 15-inch two-way full-range Gladiator G115 loudspeaker and the 18-inch G118 subwoofer at this year's Winter NAMM. Designed to reproduce modern dance music, the Gladiator is designed for the DJ, what with the Gladiator's extended LF response coupled with EV's great high frequency and vocal clarity due to RMD (Ring-Mode Decoupling).
The newly developed EV-Series woofers and crossover networks reliably produce very high SPLs. RoadWood enclosures, steel grilles, high impact corners, and comfortable handles complete the package.
Used together, EV's unique system design allows one amplifier channel to drive the sub's built-in crossover that provides the full-range output. No additional crossovers or amps are required for this true 3-way system. The EV Q66 amplifier -- with up to 850 W per channel -- is the perfect drive for a stereo 3-way rig with one G118 and one G115 per side.
The Gladiator G115 2-way features a high output EV-15FR 15-inch woofer, 60-degree x 40-degree controlled coverage, a DH2010 compression driver for extended HF and reliability, 99 dB of high sensitivity, and 400 W continuous power/1,600 W peak power handling.
The Gladiator G118 features an EV-18S 18-inch woofer with high power 4-layer voice coil, extended frequency response to 32 Hz, built-in crossover for use as a 3-way system, and 400 W continuous power/1,600 W peak power rating.
