Electro-Voice has shown its first powered floor monitor, the PXM-12MP, a 12-in powered coaxial floor monitor that is acoustically optimised for a 55 degrees floor angle.
The PXM-12MP features coaxially aligned 12-in LF and 1.75-in HF transducers with a 90 degrees horizontal angle.
The monitor can be installed as fill, delay or mounted on a pole, working as a sound system for short throw applications.
Subwoofers can be connected when extra bass is required, with the PXM-12MP including several x-over settings for ELX200 and EKX subwoofers.
A built-in Class D 700 W amplifier is featured, capable of reaching a maximum sound pressure level of 129dB.
Electro-Voice’s QuickSmart DSP is also included, featuring a backlit LCD panel and a push-button encoder with IIR/FIR settings. Digital three band EQ features are integrated, with different factory presets for a variety of application modes and five individual user presets.
A recessed connection panel is located on the side of the speaker for access when used on a pole, featuring two XLR/TRS combo mic/line inputs, an individual phantom power option, a stereo RCA AUX input for playback of music sources and an XLR THRU input used as part of a distributed sound system.
An XLR MIXOUT output allows the cabinet to be used as a three-channel mixer that can send the mix to another loudspeaker, with the PXM12-MP’s integrated cable management feature reducing clutter.
The monitor is also housed in a 15mm plywood enclosure with an EV-Coat, finished with a powder-coated steel grille.
