The Eve Audio SC407 features a very powerful amplifier array, with one amplifier per driver. The larger woofers duplicate all frequencies up to a certain crossover frequency. The mid-range woofer picks up from there. This also means all the four-way speakers are symmetrical, as the woofers do not serve different frequency bands, but essentially duplicating the bass frequencies with an utmost preciseness.
The result? Incredible bass reproduction, a very linear response, and plenty of power to shake up your main studio control room.
The stylish grey plate in the middle of the speaker not only houses the midrange woofer and AMT tweeter, but it can also be rotated so that you can place your speaker vertically or horizontally.
The SC407 is the smaller monitor in the range of four-way systems, but it's by no means small! Two 6.5" SilverCone woofers with a specially made 1.5" voice coil extend the bass frequency response down to 35Hz and work simultaneously up to 280Hz.
An extra developed 4" SilverCone midrange unit joins these high quality bass drivers that endows these speakers with a greater linear excursion and clear and accurate midranges. The bass and mid woofers in the SC407 features a very low distortion copper cap magnet system. They combine the unique glass fibre coated diaphragms with stable honeycomb structure to deliver sound spectacularly detailed and clear.
The proprietary AMT RS3 (Ribbon System 3) tweeter houses a bigger magnet system to deliver a higher output level with virtually no distortion, even at high output levels.
Each driver is provided with its own PWM amplifier for a total short-term output power of 600 W. With a maximum output level of 116dB (SPL @ 1 m) you'll definitely be able to judge your mixes precisely, whatever their intended output level is.
As the SC407 combines perfectly powerful bass with a very transparent mid-range and crystal clear high frequencies, it is predestined to be the perfect tool for mid-to-large size control rooms, where quality and consistent power output are the most important variables.
As with every other EVE Audio speaker, you get both balanced XLR inputs and unbalanced RCA inputs for greater convenience.
With every EVE Audio speaker, you also get high resolution DSP electronics. One push knob operation and you will have access to accurate volume control and several different filter settings that will help you tailor your monitors to the way you work. And if you always avoid digital processing, we've got you covered. The DSP engine is supported with a high quality A/D converter (24bit/192kHz) from Burr-Brown, which delivers a pristine signal to the DSP section. And since the PWM amplifiers are directly connected to the DSP, no additional conversion is necessary.
Bass Port Design:
It's all in the geometry. One of the downside effects of port compression is bass distortion. As you turn up the volume, the efficiency of the port reduces and distortion will increase.
Eve Audio opted for a large rear rectangular port with no hard edges for the bass port designs. That's one of the reasons EVE monitors have a high efficiency on the lower frequencies.
The results? High sound pressures with tight and punchy bass frequencies that don't cause port distortion. Crank up the volume, and EVE will deliver a round bass. And with no holes to look at every time you glance at your speakers.
