Wharfedale Pro have started shipping the next generation of the hugely popular EVP line of loudspeakers, the EVP-NEO series. Lighter in weight with improved materials and construction, the EVP-NEO series builds on the already impressive sound quality of the EXP-X. 7 models are available in the range: the EVP-12M NEO and EVP-15M NEO are low-profile stage monitors with the EVP-12NEO, EVP-15NEO, and EVP-215NEO completing the full-range lineup. The EVP-18SUB and EVP-15SUB subwoofers provide low-end reinforcement to the range. The cabinets are now more compact and use heavily braced MDF panels for a perfect balance of rigidity and weight reduction. The handles are made of aluminium, much stronger and more durable than the previous generation. A formed powder coated grille protects the transducers and provides better resistance to dents, also giving the units a unique appearance. All models in the series are available with road-tough carpet covered or painted enclosures. A new ultra-flat HF unit on a 70x70 circular waveguide improves the high frequency response while the woofers in the full-range models now use neodymium magnets for greater power and efficiency. New crossover networks are used throughout the range with transparent thermal HF protection. A dual-angle pole mount allows for flat or 10° mounting of the full-range speakers, directing more HF at the audience and less at the ceiling, reducing early reflections. The 10° angle is ideal for audiences up to 25m deep. A combination Speakon™ / Jack parallel input/output is used on all models and is conveniently located on a recessed panel. The stage monitors have a third parallel input/output located on the opposite end allowing for neat and tidy parallel wiring of monitors along the front of your stage. The EVP-NEO range is shipping now and is priced starting at $249 US MAP.
