Anaheim, Cal., January 13, 2011: Making its debut at Winter NAMM 2011, and with a host of major launch events planned in key markets around the world, the new Live X series of portable powered and passive loudspeakers is certain to send tremors throughout the global musical instrument retail marketplace, bringing world-tour-proven Electro-Voice performance within reach of a wider range of customers than ever before.

Comprising three powered and four passive models, Live X sets new standards for portable sound, with the latest Electro-Voice-engineered components; lightweight, durable plywood cabinets; best-in-class SPL output, power-handling, and frequency response; and clean, stackable designs – all at a price point previously unheard-of for loudspeakers of a similar pedigree.

Each self-contained powered system features Electro-Voice-engineered components optimized for use with the integrated high-efficiency 1000-W and 700-W Class-D amplifiers. Both full-range systems may be pole-mounted or stacked with the series’ acoustically-matched powered subwoofer.
