The EVOLVE 50 Portable Column System is a 
three component loudspeaker system powered by a 1000 W Class-D amplifier
 and driven by Electro-Voice's QuickSmartDSP.
The system consists of a 15 mm wooden, ported,
 powered subwoofer enclosure that houses a 12” subwoofer capable of a 
functional frequency output down to 37 Hz.
The bi-directional aluminum pole’s connection 
to the subwoofer is secured using a magnet, and the column array is 
gravity-held to the sub pole. The signal is internally routed to the 
Eight 3.5" neodymium drivers in the column

coverage to ensure suitable output for sitting and standing audiences. 
The sub pole and column array come prepackaged in a carrying bag.
The processing engine allows for easy setup 
via four presets (Music, Live, Speech, and Club), three-band EQ, five 
user-programmable presets (Store and Recall settings), output delay, 
phantom power (+15V), visual monitoring of limiter status, input level 
control and meters, and master volume control to ensure optimal gain
