Electro-Voice cuts through noise
The 12-inch powered PXM-12MP coaxial floor monitor offers performers a clear, reliable monitor mix with high SPL capability
The PXM-12MP marks Electro-Voice’s debut in the powered stage monitor market. Created for live performances, the PXM-12MP is an acoustically optimised, high-output, two-way stage wedge featuring coaxially aligned 12-inch LF and 1.75-inch HF transducers. Its small footprint and light weight (13.5kg) make it particularly suited for applications where floor space is limited. The 55° monitor floor angle is said to allow performers to stand as close or as far away from the system without sacrificing audio intelligibility. The 90° x 90° coverage pattern means that the monitor can be used as a fill, delay or mounted on a pole for short-throw applications. It comes with several x-over settings, including settings for ELX200 and EKX subwoofers.
The built-in, two-channel, Class-D, 700W amplifier has been developed in collaboration with EV’s sibling brand, Dynacord, and reaches a maximum SPL of 129dB. The integrated digital three-band EQ features different factory presets for various application modes, as well as five individual user presets. A high-Q notch filter can eliminate feedback frequencies, while a delay function with 0.1m increments is said to provide precise adjustment when used as a delay speaker. The GuitarCab setting allows users to connect a guitar directly to the PXM-12MP via a DI box.
The recessed connection panel is located on the side of the speaker and features two XLR/TRS combo mic/line inputs, an individual phantom power option, a stereo RCA aux input for playback music sources and an XLR thru input when used as part of a distributed sound system. An XLR mixout output allows the cabinet to act as a basic three-channel mixer that can send the mix to another loudspeaker.
