New modular twin
Eliminator is a 15-inch two-way, very high efficiency stage system.
Ring Mode Decoupling (RMD) for improved clarity in the vocal range
and consistent quality at all volume levels. RMD
"eliminates" mechanical and acoustical resonances in the
domain in which they occur leaving only pure, accurate sound. Unique
enclosure design has minimal frontal area while maintaining all of
the internal volume necessary for good bass. New handle design is
comfortable to lift from any angle, reducing the encumbrance of
carrying this system. The Eliminator's RoadWood enclosure is half the
weight and twice the strength of particleboard, yet weighs only 66
lbs. The tough steel grille and flush-mounted corner protectors make
it ready for the abuse of touring. A High-Q 60 x 40 degree horn can
project sound far, even in difficult acoustic environments. 300-watt
continuous, 1,200-watt short-term power handling ensures high output
capability. Genuine American-built Electro-Voice components,
including pure titanium diaphragm compression driver and 15-inch cast
frame woofer. Five-year parts and labor warranty. High performance
and high value.
