Top college in UK opts for Expandable Vertical Array (EVA) sound reinforcement system from Electro-Voice
November 23, 2015
- Queen Ethelburga's College equipped with new Electro-Voice sound reinforcement system
- Venue challenges solved with models from the EVA series, thanks to the large variety of dispersion angles available
- System designed by Pro Audio Centre of Leeds
Pro Audio Centre carried out extensive acoustic room simulations to find the ideal sound solution for the hall. Based on these, the perfect set-up proved to be an EVA system consisting of two hangs of four EVA vertical line array elements with a 90° by 20° dispersion angle on each side of the stage. “The speakers from the EVA series are discrete, smart and offer a great full range sound with linear, front-to-back coverage,” comments Richard Leadbitter, Manager of Pro Audio Centre. “Thanks to the large variety of dispersion angles available, we could tailor the system exactly to the needs on site. And thanks to the adjustable hang angle, we didn’t have problems with reverberation or feedback – even at high volumes.”
“ The QRx 218S subs provide such a natural sound!”
