The XLE181 is a 2 -way using a single 8" neodymium LF transducer and two neodymium 2" voice coil compression drivers combining through 2 hydrar plane wave generators into a 120° x 10° waveguide. The XLE181 can be used in biamp or full-range modes using a sophisticated internal passive network. Designed for use in arrays of four or more elements. The XLE181 delivers full bandwidth audio with
precise, predictable coverage control. Integrated rigging with hinge points located correctly between array elements is simple to use and quickly provides uncompromised line array performance. Groundstacking is easily done by using EV's XGS-4 Groundstack Kit for XLVC.

The XLVC family consists of two full-range systems with dual woofers, two full-range systems with single woofers and a subwoofer system. The dual-woofer versions include the XLD281 with a 120° horizontal coverage pattern and the XLD291 with a 90° horizontal coverage pattern. The singlewoofer versions include the XLE181 with a 120° horizontal coverage pattern and the XLE191 with a 90° horizontal
coverage pattern. The subwoofer module is the XS212. Most applications using flown very compact elements require subwoofers integrated into the same array as the full range systems. The XS212 sub woofer arrays can be created and flown behind the XLE181 full range array using an additional grid and EV's CBEAM (Coupler Beam). LAPS modeling software quickly provides array configurations and rigging information.

X-Line Very Compact delivers unprecedented performance in applications ranging from live reinforcement to performing arts venues, to houses of worship.
