Electro-Voice Announces Next-Generation EVID Ceiling Loudspeakers

Complete refresh of the C series plus new economy options – seven standard EVID-C-G2 models and the addition of five entry-level EVID-EC models to better address the requirements of different areas in an installation.

At the recently concluded InfoComm 2024 show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Electro-Voice introduced the next generation of its EVID ceiling loudspeakers, including the standard EVID-C-G2 series that offers seven models and replaces the existing C series as well as the addition of five EVID-EC entry-level models that further expands the previous product lineup.

Collectively the 12 new models provide mix-and-match price/performance options that can be selected to optimally address the distributed audio requirements of different areas in an installation. Configurations range from 3-inch full-range to 8-inch two-way and subwoofer models, and include dedicated models for specific applications, such as low-profile, high-ceiling/high-performance, UL 1480, CSA/ULC-S541:2016 and EN54-24 EVAC-certified models. The 3-inch entry-level model (EVID-EC3.1) is suitable for high humidity spaces and is IP45 rated. All C-G2 and EC models are UL 1480A and UL 2043 certified.

As with all EVID models, the new C and EC series models have been designed with multiple time-saving features. The new SwiftLock System (C-G2 models only) supports quick and secure attachment to the ceiling with a push-and-lock mechanism. The front-baffle wattage tap and side-access terminal blocks are designed to make adjustment and connection simpler. All models are 70/100V.

The C-G2 and EC models have the same three cut-out sizes and outside diameter sizes as the previous-generation C series models: small/7-inch, medium/11-inch and large/13-inch. In addition to ensuring a more balanced appearance, this standardized sizing makes multi-model and/or retrofit installations easier, as the same cut-out holes may be used/re-used.

All models include bezel-less magnetic grilles in a paintable white finish. This means that only the grilles need to be painted. Black-finish grilles are available as an accessory for all sizes and square grilles are available in white for the medium/11-inch size. All models have protective cloth under the grille.

Further, all models benefit from EV’s patented SST (Signal Synchronized Transducers) technology, an approach to time-aligning the low- and high-frequency transducers that allows a larger waveguide to fit inside a more compact enclosure to supply enhanced acoustic performance and pattern control for added full-range intelligibility. Shallower profiles allow the loudspeakers to fit into tighter spaces.

The next-gen ceiling models join the currently available surface-mount, pendant-mount, flush-mount and high-performance PC (Premium Ceiling) models in the broader EVID family. Various EVID models can be combined to create an optimal system design with consistent visuals and voicing throughout.

The Electro-Voice Ceiling & Pendant Speaker Calculator is free to download and has been updated to include all the new models.
