Re: Ev50 vs f1 812


Hi Tarek

In addition to my Bose gear, I also have a pair of evolve 50s. In my experience the Evolve 50 max spl of 127 is well below (almost 6db) of your F1 812 box at 132 spl. The F1 812 would be noticeably louder.

Is the Evolve 50 better? It's a great full range system for 100-200 people, the F1 system with subs would be louder and cover larger events

My suggestion would be to check on your gain structure to be sure your signal levels are correct. 

Good Luck!

Hi, Tarek.

Please see your other discussion: Jbl eon 615 vs. f1 812.

I could attempt to compare the EV Evolve 50 I'd end up saying the same thing.

The most meaningful way to compare loudspeakers is to listen to them. Looking at the technical data these two loudspeakers, I cannot make meaningful projections about the differences you can expect in a performance setting.

Re: Ev50 vs f1 812

If you keep sitting behind and close to F1, I think it is not really louder in your case.

Threfere, it should input signal issue. Are you switching it to MIC INPUT? In your case, is it better to switch it to LINE?

Re: Ev50 vs f1 812

I own both and they are completely different. The ev50 is for smaller crowds. the F1 system is for bigger crowds.  the EV can't touch the Bose in how it distributes sound.   just my 2 cents from using them both often.    The ev 50 is way easier to set up. and lighter.
