EV (Electro-Voice) is introducing a new line of power amplifiers, the Px Series, at Winter NAMM. Built on the rugged, dependable and high-end Precision Series amplifiers, the Px Series brings well-researched and flexible custom modules to a variety of applications. State-of-the-art audio performance with a complete safety/protection package makes the line the utmost in flexibility, whether the application is local hire, installation or MI. Unlike EV amplifier designs in the past, the Px1201 and Px1202 feature unique plug-in modules specifically designed to complement EV speakers. The Px Series is perfect for permanent installations as well as MI applications. All Px amplifiers feature modular In/Out panels for future options and inputs on XLR with slave out(s). The standard versions, Px1201 and Px1202, feature XLR and Speakon connections, while the contractor versions, Px1201i and Px1202i, are equipped with Phoenix and barrier strips.
The Px Series, with appropriate, customized modules, allows maximum performance from the FRi, FRX, Xi, Rx and other EV loudspeakers. All modules feature level control, input/signal present LED, voice-coil-protection, mode switch (FR/Mid-Hi) with status LED and Mid-EQ for customer selection between flat or dip.
The various custom modules available for the Px Series fit a number of current EV loudspeaker product offerings. The dual-channel version, Px1202, can be used in stereo or mono mode (2 x 600 watt into 4 ohms); the two front-face slots are available with modules that feature filters and crossovers specifically designed for EV loudspeakers such as the newly introduced Rx Series. The Px1202 operates two separate signals (slot A & B) or the same signal in both channels (slot A only). Available in 2-way set-up for the Rx Series, the Px1202 is the perfect companion to the Rx118S or Rx112/75.
The Px1201 is designed to be used as a mono power block (1 X 1200 watt into 4 ohms) that can generate a mono sum (A + B).
All Px amplifiers feature LPN filters, crossovers and filters, thus preventing the "sloppiness" associated with driving a transducer. Set-up proves to be a breeze; no more researching user manuals or engineering data sheets for optimal settings, and the Px Series various modules are available to provide maximized performance. With the Px, you are guaranteed exemplary sound quality, with easy, quick and cost-effective modifications possible to best suit your individual needs.
Used in conjunction with EVs new Rx Series, Px amplifiers provide total and complete modular flexibility. Positioned to bridge high-end MI with contracting, the Rx Series is portable and flexible enough to be used in many high-end DJ and small regional live performances, and is equipped and precise enough for use in many fixed installation projects where direct radiating two-ways are appropriate. With this in mind, EV Rx Series top boxes come complete as portable or fixed install "ready-to-hang" cabinets with Safe-Grip handles, standard pole mount and L-track, top and bottom. Additionally, all Rx Series top-boxes are passive or biampable with a secure external switch on the back of the box for the selection of passive or biamp mode. EV has also built high-frequency driver protection right into the crossover! With the flexibility of EVs modular Px Series amplifiers and the unique features of Rx Series loudspeakers and subs, the following are but a few of the various system configurations possible: stage monitor systems, stage systems for professional musicians, mobile DJ systems, club/disco wide angle systems, and L-C-R theater systems.
