Superior Electro-Voice sound quality coupled with the most complete feature set in its class - the perfect combination of performance and flexible functionality, in a very compact package
The EVOLVE 30M is designed to deliver a significant step up in all-around performance for a column system in its size/price category. It includes an eight-channel digital mixer, studio-quality onboard effects, and remote control of all audio, effects and mix functions via the next-generation Electro-Voice QuickSmart Mobile application (available via the Apple Store and on Google Play).

The system includes a speaker array, a two-piece pole connector, an array and pole backpack carry case, and a powered subwoofer - all made to pack up and assemble quickly, look great on stage, and withstand real-world wear and tear.

All this makes it an outstanding choice for solo musicians/performers and smaller musical groups and venues - or any application that needs an easy-to-use, highly portable and lightweight system with extraordinary connectivity, control, coverage and output relative to its footprint.

Mix Like a Pro - Anywhere You Go
For events such as weddings, the mixer allows the same system to support the various mics and inputs required for participants, musicians, and background music during the day, all with plenty of power to fill the dance floor for a DJ set or live performance in the evening.

Refined industrial design, professional-grade EV-engineered components and premium build quality - super-quick setup and single-trip portability in a system that looks as good as it sounds
All set the EVOLVE 30M apart from other systems at its price point. The full-range column array and its six lightweight 2.8" neodymium drivers provide ultra-wide 120⁰ coverage via proprietary waveguides; array-formed 40⁰ asymmetrical vertical coverage ensures acoustic output is directed towards both sitting and standing audience members. The array enclosure is constructed from a durable composite material and incorporates an ergonomic aluminum handle. It is acoustically optimized using four tuning ports hidden out of sight on the rear of the enclosure.

A 10" subwoofer is housed in a 15 mm wood enclosure with a high-efficiency laminar-flow vent design, for enhanced rigidity and acoustical performance. The array and sub are connected via a two-piece symmetrical aluminum pole with internal wiring and magnetically assisted latching. An advanced Class-D amplifier provides up to 1000 W of power: 500 W to the subwoofer and 500 W to the column array. The speakers are protected by a black powder-coated 18-gauge steel grille. Combined, these elements generate a genuinely impressive performance-to-size ratio in an elegant form factor that looks as good as it sounds.

Industry-leading QuickSmart DSP - optimize every detail of your sound via the control panel or via the app from across the room
QuickSmart DSP allows navigation of system parameters via an LCD with single-knob control, as well as multiple options for signal routing and inputs. Functions include four presets (Music, Live, Speech, Club), three-band system EQ (low, mid, high), seven-band graphic EQ (in Mixer mode), five user-programmable presets (Store and Recall settings), phantom power, visual monitoring of limiter status, input level control and meters, and a master volume control to optimize gain structure.

All of the above audio functions can also be controlled via the QuickSmart Mobile app - precisely adjust your system's sound from across the room, hearing what the audience hears. The fully configurable app has an intuitive, easy-to-read user interface and utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE) technology for the adjustment and monitoring of all parameters of up to six EVOLVE 30M systems simultaneously. EVOLVE 30M offers simple or sophisticated operation according to application, making great sound easy for users of all levels.

Powerful onboard mixer gives you best-in-class connectivity and control
Developed in collaboration with the world-class audio electronics engineering team at EV's sibling brand Dynacord, the integrated fully featured, fully configurable digital mixer has multiple inputs (4x XLR/TRS combo mic/line inputs, 1x XLR/TRS combo stereo line input, 1x RCA, 1x 3.5 mm stereo, 1x Hi-Z instrument input) with professional-grade preamps and mix functions. The mixer can be controlled via the QuickSmart Mobile app or via the single-knob/LCD interface.

Finesse your sound with musician-friendly features - and reduce the amount of gear you bring to the gig
Independent channel aux sends and Hi-Z and foot switch inputs are included for flexible system configuration, and a range of onboard studio-quality effects (30 presets, including chorus, delay, flange and reverb, via two FX channels) add myriad options for fine-tuning. Along with the built-in mixer, these help to reduce setup time -- and on-stage clutter -- by minimizing the need for external effects pedals and processors. The onboard effects can be controlled via the QuickSmart Mobile app or via the single-knob/LCD interface. High-resolution, low-latency Bluetooth streaming ensures excellent results for music playback or accompaniment.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
