Electro-Voice introduces EVID flush mount in-wall-speakers

The EVID FM series of flush mount in-wall speaker systems is the next generation of high performance background and foreground installed speaker systems from Electro-Voice. Comprised of the FM6.2 (6” woofer, 6” tuned passive radiator, 1” tweeter) and the FM4.2 (4” woofer, 4” tuned passive radiator, 1” tweeter), the new members of the EVID product family offer a unique combination audio quality, sturdy sealed unit construction, and aesthetically pleasing in-wall design.
All components are housed in a shallow, fully-sealed enclosure for consistent performance and sound isolation from adjacent rooms. Its low profile design also gives the FM series increased structural integrity: the specially designed ribbed back can eliminates flexing; the transformer is mounted on the back can surface, further enhancing stiffness.
Minimal enclosure depth and four-point quick mounting tabs make the FM series a streamlined sound reinforcement solution for any architectural environment, offering quick and easy installation into any wall cavity. The FM6.2 provides very high power handling in a compact package, making it suitable for larger rooms; FM4.2 provides similarly excellent performance for small and mid-sized rooms. Either 70v/100v or 8 ohm operation is standard on both models, so there is no need to buy or stock special versions. Secure phoenix-style pass-through connectors offer easy wiring and installation.
Both systems offer extended bass response relative to their compact size, and are designed to work seamlessly with all EVID series subwoofers where additional low end reinforcement is required.
For applications where in-wall mounting is not an option, a surface mounting enclosure frame for “on-wall” mounting is available in two sizes: one for the FM4.2 and one for the FM6.2.
The new EVID models are showing at InfoComm 2008 in Las Vegas, booth C3429.
