    Electro voice has been around for quite a while . They make PA equipment , and must have some kind of connection to the Jersey area car audio realm



    5 % equipment
    90 % install

    Like ramos said, meant to be PA/concert type speakers. High efficiency, massive enclosure requirements, high impedances and all the other things that go with not being maent for the automotive environment.

    Electro-voice has been around for more than a while...

    But, not the right type of drivers for the car audio world...

    Since all car audio threads are mostly about woofers, then you don't want to
    use EV woofers as subwoofers when you can get better woofers from other
    vendors.

    If you want compression drivers, horns, large midranges and large midbass drivers,
    the pro audio stuff will do that job with authority over whimpy car
    audio component sets. From about 1989 - 1992, my van was all EV drivers
    ranging from DH2 compression drivers mated to two HP640 horns that span
    the whole width of the van, plus four 15" EV midbass and a few EV 18"
    woofers powered by bridged Zapco amps. This was a SQL system, full range rear
    stage that is pretty dang sweet then and even today if I still had the van.
    I use a pair of DH1/HP640 horns on halloween every year to punish the kiddies
    by broadcasting high SPL effects from the garage out into the street. Just those
    two horns I can hear the sound blocks away, it's pretty nice for old drivers.

    You can install a pro type system in a vehicle and use car audio subs, it will be
    pretty cool if you know how to install such a rig. It's best to use a van though.
    You can make a killer SQL wall rear stage and when not driving, rotate your
    seat 180 degrees and you now have a front stage.

    ive seen some people use the smaller EV drivers as midbasses, not in all a bad idea if you get around the impedence problem with them.

    People here in the NY area like to load up their back deck with them. While being sickly loud, I have yet to hear an EV setup that I would say sounded good.

    It's not the product, it's the install

    impedence problem with them

    What impedance problem?

    8 homs? not ohms but homs....

    PA drivers are a bit more sensitive to their enclosure and power than do it all car audio drivers...
