2.5-way 5" active studio monitor

 

The SC305 is the first model of our three-way system monitors, which was carefully designed to be equally comfortable and precise in a stereo or surround set up. In the latter case, the SC305 will work perfectly as a center channel, if we're talking about a smaller system.

The SC305 combines the power from three different amplifiers to deliver a very efficient, dynamic and low noise sound reproduction.

Our three-way systems are developed for critical and detailed listening, not just to deliver power and thunderous bass (although they can do it very well too).

With its moderate size and superb technical characteristics, the SC305 model has virtually no competition on the market today. Don't miss the chance and check them out for yourself!

 

Tech Talk

Our three-way systems are designed around the concept to distribute the frequencies properly between all individual components and raise the efficiency of your speakers effectively.

With the SC305 one of the woofers is delivering sound only up to 350 Hz, functioning as a kind of "bass woofer". The other woofer gives you a fuller range up to the 3000 Hz crossover frequency as a bass-midrange driver.

This means less effective physical work being made by each individual woofer, which in turn will result in less mechanical inertia and a more efficient sound transmission. Both woofers consist of our proprietary 5" SilverCone, the same that is used in the smaller SC205 model. However, due to the fact that two of these woofers are being used simultaneously, you get a bigger frequency response - down to 50 Hz.

The SC305 also makes use of the proprietary AMT RS3 tweeter, which uses a bigger front plate and a bigger internal magnet to drive the AMT tweeter with greater efficiency.

The three 50 W PWM power amplifiers won't leave you lacking any power either. All in all, the SC305 will probably be regarded as the single most detailed three-way monitor speaker in the market for its specific size and price range.

And no worries determining how to place the SC305 in your room or studio properly. Our DSP section will assist you in choosing the speaker for left and right hand side. So you will always get proper symmetry between your speakers, instead of having to move them around as usual. With a DIP switch, located on rear of the speakers these settings for room adaption can be temporarly locked.

As with every other EVE Audio speaker, you get both balanced XLR inputs and unbalanced RCA inputs for greater convenience.

 

DSP

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.

We opted for a large rear rectangular port with no hard edges for our 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.

These monitors have a clean and effortless quality that opens a sonic window on your mix without being strident or too up-front. We found them easy on the ears over extended periods and the size of their sound belies the size of the cabinet.
