|At Musikmesse ProLight+Sound 2003 Electro-Voice introduced the 15-inch two-way full-range Gladiator G115 loudspeaker and the 18-inch G118 subwoofer. Designed to reproduce modern dance music, the Gladiator features extended LF response coupled with high frequency and vocal clarity due to RMD (Ring-Mode Decoupling).
No additional crossovers or amps are required for a 3-way system. EV's system design allows one amplifier channel to drive the subwoofer's built-in crossover that provides the full-range output. The EV Q66 amplifier with power of up to 850 watts per channel is suitable for a stereo 3-way rig with a G118 plus a G115 on either side.
The Gladiator G115 2-way boasts a high output EVS-15FR 15-inch woofer, 60° x 40° controlled coverage, a DH2010 compression driver, 99 dB of high sensitivity and 400 W continuous power handling (1,600 W peak).
The Gladiator G118 features an EVS-18S 18-inch woofer with high power 4-layer voice coil, extended frequency response to 32 Hz, built-in crossover for use as a 3-way system, and 400 W continuous power rating (1,600 W peak).
