EF500P - Powered Speaker - 800w, 15 inch / 2 inch - RENTAL ONLY
The EF500P redefines performance in a high-power professional active loudspeaker enclosure. Utilizing the popular élite EF508 as a base, and adding a total of 800 watts of bi-amped power and advanced signal processing, the EF500P is destined to set a new standard for active loudspeaker design. The woofer or low frequency amplifier uses Class D switching technology to reduce overall weight of the amplifier section. This amp delivers over 650 watts to the 15" woofer. A 150 watt two-tier linear technology class H amplifier drives the 2" titanium diaphragm horn driver. This solution allows the horn to produce loud clean transients to keep up with the high output of the woofer. The two-tier amplifier technology isn't typically seen in a product like this, however we found the advantages (lower weight, more efficiency, higher headroom and lower operating temperature) made it a perfect choice for powering the top end.
This combination of amplifier technologies keeps distortion to a minimum while reducing the heat dissipation to a level low enough to eliminate the need for heavy heatsinks for the overall power stage. As an additional advantage, our unique combination of two-tier and Class D amplification has reduced extraneous heat to the point that EF500P can easily be used in any orientation, and close to walls, floors and in close arrays with multiple cabinets. We have found that competitive active loudspeakers with large finned heatsinks need to be operated vertically and with clearance to ensure proper heat dissipation and ventilation. Since the EF500P is ideal for flying in large clusters and in point source concert sound systems, our designers took extra care making sure that in tight clusters overheating would not be an issue.
