OUR PART # EF500PB
Yorkville's EF500P redefines performance in a high-power professional active loudspeaker enclosure. The woofer or low frequency amplifier uses Class D switching technology to reduce overall weight of the amplifier section. This amp delivers over 650 watts to the 15" woofer. A 150 watt two-tier linear technology class H amplifier drives the 2" titanium diaphragm horn driver. This solution allows the horn to produce loud clean transients to keep up with the high output of the woofer.
The combination of amplifier technologies keeps distortion to a minimum while reducing the heat dissipation to a level low enough to eliminate the need for heavy heatsinks for the overall power stage. As an additional advantage, the unique combination of two-tier and Class D amplification has reduced extraneous heat to the point that EF500P can easily be used in any orientation, and close to walls, floors and in close arrays with multiple cabinets.
The limiters used in the input and crossover stages are a complex combination of gain reduction and sweeping filters. As the EF500P is being pushed to its maximum input / output levels, it's advanced filtering begins rolling off unnecessary subsonic frequencies. In addition the processing protects the individual components ensuring failure free operation even after long term operation at close to maximum output levels. The filter has remarkable (less than 70ms) response times, allowing the system to constantly be retuning itself to make sure the output is clean and clear at any given moment. This is achieved without negatively affecting the overall sonic quality of the cabinet. Extremely fast and accurate limiting is in place to protect the speaker components.
The EF500P has a built in mixer that allows the loudspeaker to be used directly with a microphone and / or line source. The loop output allows additional active cabinets to be driven from one cabinet's mixer stage, or a series of cabinets to be driven from one source. If desired, the end user can combine a pair of the EF500P's using the mixer inputs on each cabinet and coupling the loop outputs. In this simple example you would have the ideal presentation system with two microphone inputs, two line inputs optimized for CD, Cassette or laptop computer audio source, complete within two speaker cabinets. Many of Yorkville's active cabinets can be linked together but a maximum of three mixers can be active at any one time. (Making three mic sources and six line sources available in any three or more cabinet array). The microphone input has equalization and high pass filtering appropriate for vocal applications. The trim control allows looped cabinets to be individually adjusted in level. This is invaluable in applications where large numbers of cabinets are used such as clusters or in trade show applications or when EF500P's are used as repeater cabinets or for side fill. The 100 Hz high pass filters allows the EF500P to be used more efficiently with any active subwoofer.
