****** Page 7 ****** 7 1.3 1.4 Electro-Voice en Precautions If an Electro-Voice loudspeaker is used outdoors on a sunny day, place the loudspeaker in a shaded or covered area. The loudspeaker amplifiers have protection circuits that temporarily shut the loudspeaker off when extremely high temperatures are reached. This can happen on hot days when the loudspeaker is in direct sunlight. Do not use Electro-Voice loudspeakers in an environment where temperatures are below OOC (320F) or exceed +350C (950F). Never expose an Electro-Voice loudspeaker to rain, water, or high moisture. Electro-Voice loudspeakers are easily capable of generating sound pressure levels sufficient to cause permanent hearing damage to anyone within normal coverage distance. Caution should be taken to avoid prolonged exposure to sound pressure levels exceeding 90 dB. Notices Old electrical and electronic appliances Electrical or electronic devices that are no longer serviceable must be collected separately and sent for environmentally compatible recycling (in accordance with the European Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive). To dispose of old electrical or electronic devices, you should use the return and collection systems put in place in the country concerned. Copyright and disclaimer All rights reserved.

System protection System protection limiters indicate when a system is exceeding recommended usage by indicating CLIP or LIMIT on the LCD display. CLIP CLIP indicates the signal to the loudspeaker is too high, resulting in a clipped signal into the loudspeaker. If CLIP is shown, reduce the input gain knob and/or the signal on the mixer or source equipment. LIMIT LIMIT protects the loudspeaker from short-term peaks which can cause distortion. When LIMIT is shown small on the screen, the limiter is active but keeps distortion under control. The large LIMIT indicates the sound is negatively affected. Reducing the output volume (MASTER VOL) is strongly recommended when the large limit indication is shown.

Input gain knob is not in the MIC position Excessive input level Installation manual en Action Verify all the electronics are on, the signal routing is correct, the source is active; the volume is turned up, etc. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. No sound Intermittent output such as crackling or distortion Constant noise such as buzzing hissing or humming No sound produced with microphone connected to INPUT 1 or INPUT 2 Sound is distorted front LED is OFF, LCD screen LIMIT is ON Correct/repair/replace as necessary. If there is still no sound, the problem may be wiring. Verify you have connected the correct cables to the amplifier. Play something at a low level through the amplifier. Connect a test loudspeaker in parallel with the malfunctioning line. If the sound level is gone or is very weak, the line has a short in it (possibly a severe scrape, pinch, or a missed connection). Using the test loudspeaker, move down the line and test each connection/junction until you find the problem and correct it. Observe proper polarity. Check all connections at amplifier and loudspeakers to ensure they are all clean and tight. If the problem persists, check the wiring. See problem 1. If noise is present, but no program material is playing, evaluate each component as necessary to isolate the problem. Most likely there is a break in the signal path. Check and correct the system grounding, as required. Slowly increase the input gain knob level to engage the microphone pre-amp. Use a dynamic microphone that does not require phantom power (+15 V). If using a microphone requiring phantom power, enable PHANTOM POWER is the DSP menu, or use an external phantom power source. Slowly increase the input gain knob level to engage the microphone pre-amp. Reduce the input level or loudspeaker level knobs to prevent limit. 2017.07 | 02 | F.01U.341.640

****** Page 24 ****** EVOLVE 50 Portable Column System Problem 6. 7. 8. Microphone produces acoustic feedback when input level is amplified DSP menu is locked QuickSmart Mobile app does not detect the loudspeaker Possible cause Incorrect gain structure or source input (mixing console/ preamp) is overdriven Incorrect gain structure MODE is set to MUSIC Microphone position is too close to the front of the loudspeaker The Menu Lock function has been turned on. Enable Bluetooth@ Action Verify level controls of the source are properly structured by using the VIJ meter indicator on the LCD screen. If the VU meter bar is solid or the system indicates LIMIT, the input or source level is too high. Reduce the microphone levels at the mixing console or input source. If the microphone is connected directly to the speaker, reduce the input level on the speaker. Positioning the microphone close to the sound source increases gain-before-feedback. See problem 6. Change the MODE to LIVE or SPEECH. Whenever possible setup the loudspeakers so the microphone is behind them. If using the loudspeaker in a monitor position, aim the loudspeaker to the back of the microphone. Press and hold the MASTER VOL knob for 5 seconds. Ensure Bluetooth@ is enabled on the loudspeaker. If these suggestions do not solve your problem, contact your nearest Electro-Voice dealer or Electro-Voice distributor. 2017.07 | 02 | F.01U.341.640 Installation manual Electro-Voice
