It features a highAual]ty EVtvM8B pro•lne woofer in a unque SubScorop-s•’ cabinet con- fiq;nration that combines the attributes 01 nori-loaded and ventedbox designs.

The 31+1800 may also be used with any of the Electro-Voice Stage Systems line when bi-amped with appropriate active crossover and power amplifiers USE IN MULTIPLES SHM800s may he used In multiples to increase acoustic output, A 6d8 increase tn maximum acoustic output occurs when two speaker systems are located side by side For operation at very-low-frequencies, the woofer cones mutually coup4e, acting as one system With twice the eflectjve cone area and powerhandllng capacity ct a Single system. Efficiency doubled by the Increas- ed cone area to provide more output, while the doubled power capacity provides the potenttal for an additional gain Tl maximum acoustic output Mvutual coupling occurs when the center distance hetwen woofers is less than one-hall wavelength, the woofers are spaced greater than one-half waveiength, as would occur [wc SH- were widely spaced, the levu Increase ts limned to the •nput power tncrease.

SUBPASSBAND SPEAKER PROTECTION Below the enciosure tuning frequency, cone excursion ‘ncreases rapidly, Since acoustic output also failing rapidly. there ts no advantage in driving the system with signals much below lhe tuning frequency. While such signals may be the program material. thev are often extraneous — such as from record surface irregularities or a dropped microphone. High-outpul subwoofer systems such as the SH-180C should be pro- tected with a 32 Hz high•pass filter having 12-d3-per•octave rolloff Subpassband filters are found tn many commercialiy available crossovers and equalizers, such as the Electro-Vace XEQ•3, FREQUENCY RESPONSE The SH-1800 frequency response was measured at ten feet using a tour-volt Input in an anechoic chamber. and was measured using a swept 1/3-octave pink noise Signal. No external equalization was used. POWER HANDLING CAPACITY TO our knowledge. Electro-Voice was the first- U.S. manufacturer to develop and publish a power test related to real-life conditions. first, we use a random noise input Signal because It contains many frequencies simultaneously. Just Ilke real votce or instrument program, Second, our signal contains more energy at extrernely high and IOW freql.uefiCl$S than typical actual program. adding an extra measure of reliability. Thirdl the test signal includes not only the overall i’long-term average/’ cr ‘*continuous” level — which our ears nterpret as loudness but also short• term peaks which are many times higher than the average. just like the actual program. The Ong-term average level lhe (heat) The Instantaneous peaks test mechanical reliability (cone and diaphragm excursion). Note that the. sine wave test signals sometimes used have a much less demand, tng peak value relative tc thetr average level, in actual use, long-term average levels enst from several seconds or greater. but vve apply the long-terrn average tor several hours, addno another extra measure of reliability. Specifically. the Sl+l got) IS desgned to withstand the power test described the ElA Standard RS426A. The ElA lest spectrum ts applied for eight hours, To obtain the spectrum. the output of a while nase generator (white noise IS a particular type of random noise with equal energy per bandwidth In Hz) IS fed to a shaping filter wth 6-d3-per-octave Sopes below 40 Hz and above 318 Hz. When measured With the usual constant-percentage bandwidth anaiyzer this shapng fiiter produces a spectrum whose points are at 100 Hz and 1,200 Hz With a 3dBpeructave slope above 1 ,20C Hz. Thus shaped sqnal IS sent to ‘he power arnpilter with the continuous power set at €400 watts into the 6 q ohms ElA equivalent impedance. (52 5 volte true FtMS) Amplifier clipping sets Instantaneous peaks at 6 dB above the con- unuous power, or 1,600 watts peak (105 volts peak) This procedure provides a rigorous test of both thermal and mechanical failure modes, ENCLOSURE CONSTRUCTION Intended to be used as a portable speaker system, the SH-1800 is ruggedly constructed of 3/ench vocifree plywood.
