The Electro-Voice X-Line is a fully configurable linear sound reinforcement system. It is designed to allow one-person rigging while
exhibiting both flat-front long-throw and curvedfront arc segment.or J-box.orientations. X-Line., Electro-Voice.s realization of that classic J orientation, maximizes vertical-plane wave summing and eliminates the physical gaps between the rectangular enclosures at the J portion of the hang. Because such gaps separate the high-frequency radiating planes and result in non-coherent summing when the wavelengths are shorter than the spacings between rectangular enclosures, the
X-Line. simply provides cleaner sound. Four application-specific enclosures.Xvls, Xvlt, Xfil, and Xsub.compose the EV X-Line system.
Each represents a no-compromise approach that recognizes the extreme performance requirements and level-independent integrity demanded not just by line arrays, but also by many other contemporary
sound reinforcement designs.
In the two primary enclosures.the Xvls and Xvlt- the transducer components are identical, but the directional specifications differ.The vertically trapezoidal Xvlt with its 120-degree vertical included angle, is used in the J.or .fishhook portion of the X-Line. array. The five-degree
included angle on both top and bottom of the cabinet also allows the Xvlt to be assembled into multi-box arc segment arrays which are excellent for medium-format venues such as theaters or corporate events.
The Xvlt enclosure, with its horizontal included angle of 120 degrees, may also be used in an all-Xvlt array when extremely wide horizontal coverage is needed. This is the case in four- to eight-box vertical
arrays used for very large performing arts venues, large churches, or other spaces where short throw but very wide coverage is necessary.
