EV (Electro-Voice) is introducing the Sx600 loudspeaker, the newest addition to its line of Sx Series loudspeakers. The Sx600 series is suited for applications requiring high intelligibility sound at high SPL's in applications such as arenas, stadiums, and race tracks.
The Sx600PI and Sx600PIX are higher power extensions of the popular Sx Series of weather-resistant indoor/outdoor loudspeaker systems. The Sx600 series features a dual 12-inch two-element vertical array based on the powerful neodymium woofer developed for the professional concert system X-Array. Mid-bass and low-frequency energy is augmented by an overlapping DL Series woofer to produce vertical pattern control and intelligibility superior to conventional horn systems.
The HF section features the DH2t compression driver coupled to a molded-in 65-degree x 65-degree Constant Directivity horn using EV's unique Varipath throat geometry. An EV-exclusive "center point" SuperSAM mounting system allows 60-degrees of vertical adjustment and 180-degrees of horizontal pan with simple adjustment. The SuperSAM has been designed for a safety factor greater than 5:1. It is also engineered to withstand significant wind and ice loading. The Sx600PI's enclosure is made of a high-density polymer and features an all-weather powder-coated stainless steel grille that protects against rain, sprayed water, and dust to IEC IP 54 specifications.
The Sx600PIX features a special internally mounted 600-watt line-transformer for operation on 70, 100, 140 and 200 volt distributed line systems. At under 80 lbs (36 kg) without the mounting bracket or 98 lbs (44 kg) with the bracket, the Sx600PI/Sx600PIX is a lightweight sound solution for indoor or outdoor open air applications.
