Portable compact column speaker

The Evolve 50 column speaker system from Electro-Voice offers a compact PA system solution that is easy to transport and can be set up quickly, and has been on the market since 2017. Despite having small dimensions and weighing just 26 kg, the system delivers a total power output of 1000 W and, additionally, is equipped with an integrated mixer. A wide range of connection options, including high-performance Bluetooth streaming, complete the picture. The Evolve 50 can be operated via its single-button controller and gain level inputs or, alternatively, via the QuickSmart app, which is available free of charge for both Android and iOS and allows systems of up to six speakers to be operated simultaneously.

Equipped for many different situations

The 12” subwoofer and its eight 3.5” tweeters in array deliver a uniform frequency response between 43 Hz and 20000 Hz (at -3 dB). The Evolve 50 is thus ready for a wide range of PA applications and, thanks to its four presets, can be quickly and easily adapted to a wide variety of settings. Alongside a linear “Live Mode” for solo artists and small bands, two presets are customized for playing back recorded music and a further mode is ideally suited to the amplification of speech. Users wishing to go into more detail can further shape the sound to suit local conditions thanks to the integrated EQ, and can also save their settings.

Sophisticated features

The Evolve 50’s light weight, the speed with which it can be set up, and the wide coverage angle of 120° x 40° it provides all contribute to making it a flexible, compact PA system that is ideal for small bands, DJs, and even schools and other organisations. The four operating modes, the integrated mixer featuring two microphone preamp inputs with optional +48 V phantom power to allow the use of condenser microphones, and Bluetooth streaming provide a complete package which will eliminate the need for additional equipment in many situations. Since more complex PA installations often involve synchronization issues which need to be compensated for, Electro-Voice has equipped the Evolve 50 with an integrated delay of up to 100 ms.

About Electro-Voice

Electro-Voice was founded in 1927 and has been dedicated to building sound reinforcement systems and microphones since the 1930s. The firm, originally based in Indiana, USA, is considered one of the industry pioneers and has developed many new technologies still in use today. For example, their hum-cancelling coil was not only a milestone for microphone construction, but also was at the origin of the humbucker pickups still used in many guitars. In the long history of the company, Electro-Voice has constantly expanded its offer and today sells a wide range of products for sound reinforcement tasks from entry to professional levels.

Versatile and flexible

The Electro-Voice Evolve 50’s transportability and understated design, combined with all the features described above, make this a flexible system that is adaptable to a wide range of situations – such as those that might be faced by small PA rental companies, for example. Every need can thus be fulfilled: From the simple amplification of speech through to discreet background music (which, incidentally, can be played wirelessly via the Bluetooth streaming function) and providing the right soundtrack for the dancefloor. With the app, all the speakers in a system can be immediately set to best suit the occasion, and everything is ready to go in a few clicks. Electro-Voice also offers additional accessories to further expand the Evolve 50 column speaker system’s functionality, which include a shorter line pole and a transport case with wheels.

A great sound with style
Kibrisgavin 20.12.2018
I work as a solo singer/guitarist and have two of these. To be honest one is enough as they really pack a punch! The controls are easy to master and the overall sound quality is brilliant. My old system was using Bose 802's and controller which was very good but the Evolve 50 is just another level.
I am based in Cyprus so do mainly outdoor gigs for most of the year and these cope with the big spaces very easily. Also the bluetooth feature effectively gives me 4 inputs thereby making my mixer redundant, so even less kit to carry!


Ticks all the boxes!
Kibris Gavin 09.03.2018
I bought a pair of these to replace my Bose 802's, sub and power amps/crossover rack system. Having researched them I am happy to report that they are everything and more than I expected. They are easy to assemble, light, great looking and sound excellent with a fabulous bass response. Considering their quality and cost I was surprised that the subs didn't come with covers, unlike the tops which are bagged, so had to spend extra for those. I use them as a solo act in Cyprus and they have performed well both indoors and out. I have always used good quality gear and these are exceptionally good.


Great PA
Cojo 11.06.2019
Used for a one man band it has a wonderful vocal sound. Be careful the height of the assembled pa, may not fit in low ceiling rooms. Some of my venues are very old buildings.

In jeder Lage einfach Überragend
Ilja R. 30.04.2019
Ich nutze bisher 2 Systeme um Hochzeiten, Gospelkonzerte oder kleinere Bandauftritte zu realisieren.

Ich habe mir extra einen Tag Zeit genommen, um direkt bei Thomann die "noch transportablen" Säulen-Systeme zu testen und zu hören.
Die Ev Evolve 50 ist klanglich wirklich überragend. Sehr transparent ohne die Höhen zu sehr in den Mittelpunkt zu stellen. Auch die Wiedergabe im Mittenbereich war für ein Säulensystem einfach sehr gut. Instrumente sind differenzierbar und im Stereobetrieb auch gut ortbar.
Der Bass ist druckvoll aber nicht nervig oder überbetont.
Dazu tragen natürlich die DSP-Presets und die Neodyn-Treiber Ihren teil bei.
Positiv möchte ich auch den Abstrahlwinkel von 120° erwähnen, der egal wo man sich im Publikum befindet immer einen gleichmäßigen Klang ermöglicht.

Aufbau - ist innerhalb von 1ner Minute erledigt. Keine extra Kabel vom Sub zur Säule nötig. Alle Anschlüsse gut zugänglich.

Transport: Säule ist in einer Tasche verpackt, Sub standartmäßig ohne.
Aber: Ich verpacke die gesamte PA bestehend aus 2x EV Evolve 50, Mischpult, Kabel, Mikrofone + Ständer, 19" Zoll Rack für WLAN + RockNRoller All Terrain in einer A3 Limousine. :)
Gewicht ist noch alleine zu bewältigen. Alles was dann mehr "Dampf" hat wiegt dann auch gleich fast das Doppelte.

Die Ev Evolve 50 sind bis zu 6 Systemen erweiterbar und per App zu verwalten bzw. zu steuern.
Die Eingänge können mit Phantomspeisung über das DSP-Menü versorgt werden!

Ob als Solosystem als übergroße Bluetoothbox zum Grillen oder in der Fußgängerzone für 2-3 Musikanten oder um eine Gemeinde von 500 Personen in der Kirche zu beschallen (4 Systeme), Klanglich und technisch sind die Säulensysteme über jeden Zweifel erhaben was für mich auch den Preis rechtfertigt.
