BPM 2015: Electro-Voice, Dynacord to showcase new gear

Electro-Voice and Dynacord are set to present the latest additions to their product portfolios from their joint booth at BPM/PRO 2015.

Electro-Voice will celebrate the BPM premiere of its EKX loudspeaker family (pictured), which will be displayed alongside the Electro-Voice ETX Powered Loudspeaker family as well as ZxA1, ZLX and ELX loudspeakers. Dynacord will present the Xa2-PRO system in Birmingham for the first time. Also showcased will be the brand’s Vertical Array system, AXM 12A monitor as well as the PM502, PowerMate and CMS mixers.

The EKX series is the newest member of the Electro-Voice portable loudspeaker family, and combines ‘EV sound quality and reliability with the latest technology’, presented in a lightweight, compact package designed for a range of sound reinforcement scenarios, including musicians, DJs, and live/club/installed sound applications. The EKX series features eight models (four powered and four passive), including 12in and 15in two-way models and 15in and 18in subwoofers. EKX is positioned above the ZLX and ELX series and below the ETX series. EV-exclusive features are designed to offer best-in-class performance and versatility, including EV-engineered speaker and amplifier components and on-board signal processing with single-knob control and application presets. Robust wood enclosures with a durable EVCoat finish promise that EKX speakers ‘look as great as they sound’.

Dynacord has given the enclosures of the Xa-2 system an update. Under the new name Xa2-PRO, all cabinets will have a new heavy-duty structured lacquer surface and a solid-steel front grille matching the latest Dynacord enclosure design. The front grille caters for increased stability while the structured lacquer surface provides increased protection from dust and dirt. The system offers ‘high sound pressure levels and ultimate sonic performance’ out of a compact enclosure. Traditional applications include small city open-air festivals and mobile DJ events covering distances up to 40 metres.

Electro-Voice and Dynacord will both be at booth G109 during the show from 12 – 14 September at The NEC in Birmingham.
