Electro-Voice EVID Compact Sound series now available

The new EVID Compact Sound series speakers from Electro-Voice are now shipping.

The range joins the manufacturer’s award-winning EVID family of small-format installed audio products – recently extended with a number of new in-ceiling options – and promises ‘excellent sound quality’ and ‘next-generation industrial design.’

EVID Compact Sound is described as a flexible, scalable background music solution for a wide range of architectural environments including retail spaces, offices and restaurants, and designed to offer ‘an unparalled performance-to-size ratio’.

The series consists of five sonically- and aesthetically-matched models that allow complete systems to be customised ‘more effectively and more economically’ – there is a surface-mont version (pictured), a ceiling option and a pendant speaker as well. Individual models can be mixed with one another for optimal results according to application.

Common system features:

  • Users can purchase either a complete pre-packaged system or mix-and-match satellite models with any subwoofer to meet décor or installation requirements
  • Direct connection of satellites to subwoofer simplifies wiring
  • High-quality audio with acoustically balanced crossover point – eliminates localised subwoofer effect so system ‘sonically disappears’

  • Supports 100W, 70/100V, and 8 ohm audio connections

Ceiling version features:

  • Quick-install design with captive mounting tabs to fit nearly any ceiling construction
