Yorkville EF500PB 15" 800W 2-Way Powered Speaker - Black Finish

The EF500P redefines performance in a high-power professional active loudspeaker enclosure. Utilizing the popular élite EF508 as a base, and adding a total of 800 watts of bi-amped power and advanced signal processing, the EF500P is destined to set a new standard for active loudspeaker design. The woofer or low frequency amplifier uses Class D switching technology to reduce overall weight of the amplifier section. This amp delivers over 650 watts to the 15" woofer. A 150 watt two-tier linear technology class H amplifier drives the 2" titanium diaphragm horn driver. This solution allows the horn to produce loud clean transients to keep up with the high output of the woofer. The two-tier amplifier technology isn't typically seen in a product like this, however we found the advantages (lower weight, more efficiency, higher headroom and lower operating temperature) made it a perfect choice for powering the top end.

This combination of amplifier technologies keeps distortion to a minimum while reducing the heat dissipation to a level low enough to eliminate the need for heavy heatsinks for the overall power stage. As an additional advantage, our unique combination of two-tier and Class D amplification has reduced extraneous heat to the point that EF500P can easily be used in any orientation, and close to walls, floors and in close arrays with multiple cabinets. Yorkville has found that competitive active loudspeakers with large finned heatsinks need to be operated vertically and with clearance to ensure proper heat dissipation and ventilation. Since the EF500P is ideal for flying in large clusters and in point source concert sound systems, our designers took extra care making sure that in tight clusters overheating would not be an issue.

EF500P - Mixer / Amplifier Module Yorkvile has also found an opportunity to tweak the electronics for maximum overall speaker performance and protection. Borrowing some ideas from our powerful and popular TX Series PA systems, the limiters used in the input and crossover stages are a complex combination of gain reduction and sweeping filters. As the EF500P is being pushed to its maximum input / output levels, it's advanced filtering begins rolling off unnecessary subsonic frequencies. In addition the processing protects the individual components ensuring failure free operation even after long term operation at close to maximum output levels. The filter has remarkable (less than 70ms) response times, allowing the system to constantly be retuning itself to make sure the output is as clean, as loud and as clear as possible at any given moment. This is achieved without negatively affecting the overall sonic quality of the cabinet. This ensures that the essential part of any mix, like the vocals or solo instruments, come out clean and clear when the cabinet is being operated at the extremes of power and woofer excursion. Extremely fast and accurate limiting is in place to protect the speaker components.

The EF500P has a built in mixer allows the loudspeaker to be used directly with a microphone and / or line source. The loop output allows additional active cabinets to be driven from one cabinet's mixer stage, or a series of cabinets to be driven from one source. If desired, the end user can combine a pair of the EF500P's using the mixer inputs on each cabinet and coupling the loop outputs. In this simple example you would have the ideal presentation system with two microphone inputs, two line inputs optimized for CD, Cassette or laptop computer audio source, complete within two speaker cabinets. Many of our active cabinets can be linked together but a maximum of three 'mixers' can be active at any one time. (Making three mic sources and six line sources available in any three or more cabinet array). The microphone input has equalization and high pass filtering appropriate for vocal applications. The trim control allows looped cabinets to be individually adjusted in level. This is invaluable in applications where large numbers of cabinets are used such as clusters or in trade show applications or when EF500P's are used as repeater cabinets or for side fill. The 100 Hz high pass filters allows the EF500P to be used more efficiently with any active subwoofer.

Comments about Yorkville EF500PB 15" 800W 2-Way Powered Speaker *:

You are looking at in my OPN the BEST powered 15inch speaker in its price range. This is a BIG venue speaker. It's HEAVY and will project sound beyond 99% of the competition. This speaker was released by Yorkville somewhere around year 2000 and the cabinet design hasn't to my knowledge changed.

This is not a BASS speaker though it will cover many larger venues on it own. I use these with yorkville LS800P self-powered subwoofers. This combination allows me to play ANY venue under 2000 persons and KNOW that I can rock it out.

Bottom line: When the job calls for nothing less than perfect perfomance and vocal clarity the EF500PB is the choice for me. By the way---I've had this set-up since 2002 and played over 200 shows with these speakers. You will not get bored with the EF500P.
