Electro-Voice launches multi-function monitors
Electro-Voice used the InfoComm 2019 show to launch MFX multi-function, passive, two-way coaxial monitors.
The MFX-12MC and MFX-15MC are 12-in and 15-in units complement the X-Line Advance line array models X1, X2, X12-128 and X12-125F, and corresponding installation versions.
They use high-output coaxially aligned HF and LF transducers matched with a new Electro-Voice-engineered Constant-Directivity waveguide and a new crossover design. Coverage in monitor orientation is 40-degrees H x 60-degrees V. The dimensions and location of the waveguide interact with the woofer to effectively create a bipole output.
A new cabinet concept with dual monitor angles (35° and 55°) allows the output to be precisely focused towards the performer.
MFX Multi-Function Monitors are optimised for use with TGX10 or IPX10:4 amplifiers from EV’s sibling brand Dynacord. Both models can be deployed in passive or bi-amp configuration and can be optimised for different uses via DSP settings in the amps. Power handling for the MFX-12MC is 400 W (continuous) and 4000 W (peak); the MFX-15MC delivers 500 W (continuous) and 4000 W (peak). Each model has a maximum SPL rating of 135 dB and 136 dB respectively.
In addition to their primary function as high-performance stage monitors, both the MFX-12MC and MFX-15MC feature an integrated pole cup (located in one of the two side handle recesses), so they can serve as short-throw main/full-range sound reinforcement for portable applications using tripods or subwoofer poles. Coverage in this orientation is 60-degrees H x 40-degrees V. Each model features four M10 suspension points. U brackets, yokes, a tilt adapter, truss clamps, stand-mount adapters and a rigging bar are available for temporary or permanent installations. They are finished with a rugged EVCoat finish (available in black or white) and 1.5 mm-thick corrosion-resistant grille.
