X-Line Advance

Forward‑thinking line‑array design

Engineered to amaze

Based on the X-Line Advance line arrays for live sound, the XLAi X1i and X2i for fixed installation are #EngineeredToAmaze. Incorporating legendary EV-engineered transducers, crossovers and patented waveguide components, the compact and highly efficient two-way designs deliver high SPLs, extended high frequency response and linear low-frequency extension. The new series is an easy to install solution for virtually all kinds of mid- to large-sized venues. Combined with EV’s PREVIEW coverage prediction software and Dynacord’s high-performance IPX series amplifiers and SONICUE sound system software, specifiers get a completely networked solution with Dante audio and AES 70-compliant control.

Offering the best audio experience

Incredible sound from compact line arrays for fixed installations. The Electro-Voice XLAi install series are #EngineeredToAmaze thanks to advanced technologies and EV-engineered components. The key to the X1i and X2i’s performance? The patented HF plane-wave generator and the unique mid-band Hydra. These advanced waveguides ensure XLAi arrays outperform many larger systems and evenly cover your venue with clear, intelligible sound. X-Line Advance Install cabinets can also be hung in symmetrical arrays to achieve optimal sonic imaging.

Installation-friendly in a discreet design

Blend in with the best: Electro-Voice XLAi line arrays are #EngineeredToAmaze with simplified rigging for quick installation and a discreet design that fits with your décor. The two-way elements feature 90° and 120° horizontal coverage patterns, and all models in the range – including the X12i-128 dual 18” subwoofer – are available in black or white, and in indoor or fully-weatherized IP55 fiberglass versions. Four M10 rigging points on each side, aluminum rigging kits or watertight input covers with one-size-fits-all PG21 gland nuts are some examples of the ingenious system concept.

An integrated system made easy

Quick to set up, easy-to-use line arrays. The Electro-Voice XLAi install series X1i and X2i are #EngineeredToAmaze with simple, intuitive operation courtesy of SONICUE sound system software by Dynacord. Together with EV’s PREVIEW loudspeaker prediction software and the award-winning Dynacord IPX amplifiers, specifiers will enjoy optimized results in a complete back-end solution for mid- to large-sized venues – all with Dante audio and AES 70-compliant control.

A driving force in concert sound reinforcement since its beginning, EV is dedicated to developing products that exceed the ever-higher expectations of audiences, performers, and production professionals the world over. We channel our industry‑leading engineering experience and R&D resources towards product designs that push the art and science of sound forward, rather than following the pack.

To achieve our goal of creating a line array with the best acoustic and mechanical performance, we talked to dozens of touring professionals and combined their real‑world insight with our decades of line‑array know‑how.

The result is the next generation of our legendary X‑Line family, offering breakthrough new components that work together to surpass the performance of other leading line arrays, and all in a more compact, flexible, and faster‑to‑set‑up package
