Eastern Acoustic Works offers the largest catalog of standard loudspeaker system products in the world. The product line consists of product series each of which is built around an engineering approach, technology platform or application requirement.
Loudspeaker Series at a Glance
EAW's extensive product line gives audio professionals a complete toolkit for solving acoustical challenges. The chart below gives a sense of what qualities each series delivers, grouped first by major application type, then by system design.
DSA Series - The original steerable array and still the best. Better sound and better control with finer resolution through the high frequency band. We pioneered this application and no other manufacturer has our experience. Includes DSA Pilot modeling, prediction and array control software.
JFL Series - Premium two-way line array system with companion subwoofer universal application.
KF Series - Classic range of ranges. Scalable range of three-way arrayable systems with additional coverage options or purpose-designed features. Includes mobile production and/or permanent installation versions of some ranges and universal application versions in others.
KF Series Line Arrays - Scalable range of three-way line array systems in mobile production and permanent installation versions. EAW Resolution design and modeling software ensures optimal performance in each application.
LA Series - Integrated series of two- and three-way mains, monitors and subwoofers. Originally created as entry-level professional systems, but used in both permanent installation and mobile production applications.
MW Series - The greatest floor monitors ever made. Coaxial, two-way systems from 6-in to 15-in LF.
QX Series - State-of-the-art, three-way, arrayable, permanent installation systems in a range of coverage patterns. Bilaterally symmetrical design delivers a new level in pattern control, and new, high-efficiency MF/HF compression drivers open new possibilities for output and coverage.
SB Series - Classic scalable range of subwoofers for all applications.
VF Series - Scalable, integrated range of entry-level professional systems with two-way mains and floor monitors and matching subwoofers.
EAW Signal Processors
UX8800 - 4-in/8-out digital signal processor to control multi-way loudspeakers, integrate multiple loudspeakers or deliver EAW Focusing settings
EAW's pioneering work in audio testing, measurement and control has yielded a range of software product to model and control EAW loudspeaker systems. Current offerings include:
EAW Resolution - model acoustic performance and mechanical requirements of most EAW loudspeaker systems
EAW Pilot - deliver DSP and EAW Focusing settings to EAW loudspeakers via onboard processing or UX Series processors
The KF Series is the largest of EAW's product series and includes several sub-series. All loudspeaker systems in the KF Series feature three-way design. Each sub-series applies three-way design to meet a particular set of requirements.
- KF760 Series - Large format line array systems. Equally useful in permanent installation and mobile production.
- KF740 - Very high output, compact line array system. Equally useful in permanent installation and mobile production. Capable of supporting high energy entertainment in large venues like arenas.
- KF730 Series - Compact line array systems. Equally useful in permanent installation and mobile production.
- KF600 Series - Medium format systems for horizontal arrays. Equally useful in permanent installation and mobile production.
- KF300 Series - Compact systems for horizontal arrays. Equally useful in permanent installation and mobile production.
- NT Powered Versions - Self-powered versions of KF300 Series. Also includes KF200NT ultra-compact system available only in self-powered version. Primarily used for mobile production.
The QX Series contains EAW's state-of-the-art, high output, three-way systems specifically engineered for permanent installation. The series includes systems that share the same enclosure while delivering a range of coverage patterns as well as a dedicated subwoofer system. The QX Series is primarily intended for large venues like arenas, stadia and large houses of worship, but is appropriate to any critical listening environment requiring high output levels, such as live music clubs, dance clubs or performing arts centers.
The QX Series technology platform features a bilaterally symmetrical design. That is, all three frequency sections share both the vertical and horizontal axes, producing idealized summation and unmatched coherency. An ultra-efficient MF/HF compression driver is surrounded by four 12-in LF cones spaced at tuned distances to deliver pattern control well into the LF passband.
The MK Series contains EAW's state-of-the-art, two-way systems specifically engineered for permanent installation. The series includes three sub-series each of which shares a common enclosure as well as three dedicated subwoofer systems. All MK Series systems feature large-format HF horns that maintain pattern control throughout the crossover region, enabling EAW's beamwidth-matching crossover technology that improves performance through the crossover region.
- MK5300 Series - 15-in LF cone with a range of HF coverage patterns
- MK2300 Series - 12-in LF cone with a range of HF coverage patterns
- MK8100 Series - 8-in LF cone with choice of two coverage patterns
- SBK Series - Originally designed as dedicated MK Series subwoofers, these three systems work well as general purpose permanent installation subwoofers.
The JF Series contains EAW's high-output, two-way systems intended for universal application. That is, a single version supports both permanent installation and mobile production. The series ranges from ultra-compact systems with 6- or 8-in LF cones through 12- and 15-in LF cones with a choice of HF coverage patterns. Self-powered versions of larger JF Series systems are available in NT Powered versions.
Microwedge (MW Series)
The MW Series contains cutting edge, two-way, stage monitor systems designed for any high-energy live performance stage, including mobile production applications like concert tours or large corporate AV events as well as permanent installation applications that include a live music component such as houses of worship that feature high-energy worship leaders, performing arts centers or live music clubs.
The MW Series - co-designed by legendary 'road dog' Dave "Rat" Levine - represents a new level of performance and functionality in stage monitor design. Built 'from the ground up', the MW Series solves many problems inherent in stage monitors that are merely extensions of a main channel technology platform. For this reason, the MW Series delivers substantially more gain before feedback compared to traditional stage monitor systems.
The VF Series applies the MK Series technology platform to a range of two-way professional systems and/or permanent installation systems at a price point that is accessible to most aspiring pro audio practitioners.
The LA Series is a high-performance, integrated line of professional systems that includes main channel systems, subwoofer systems and stage monitors.
The JFL Series brings JF Series two-way performance to a compact, easy-to-use line array module intended for universal application. JFL Series arrays can be flown, ground stacked or pole mounted (two modules maximum). Series also includes a dedicated subwoofer system.
EAW's legendary SB Series subwoofer systems range from a single 12-in cone to a mighty dual 21-in as well as horn-loaded subwoofer systems. Most systems come in versions for permanent installation (threaded mounting points) or mobile production (handles, rubber footpads, fly track and casters as appropriate).
The AX Series contains EAW's previous generation of three-way systems intended exclusively for permanent installation. Like the QX Series that succeeded it, the AX Series systems all share the same enclosure, offering a range of HF coverage patterns. The series also includes a dedicated subwoofer system. The AX Series offers many advantages of the QX Series with slightly less output but at a more affordable price.
The AX Series technology platform features a coaxial MF/HF compression driver and dual 15-in LF cones arranged at tuned distances in the vertical plane. This provide exceptional coherence and vertical pattern control well into the LF range.
The LS Series contains two dedicated, two-way, line source (column) loudspeaker systems intended for permanent installation. Complex, internal, passive filters deliver high levels of vertical pattern control.
The CIS Series contains a range of ceiling-mounted, two-way loudspeaker systems engineered for high-end commercial integration. Also includes the legendary CP621 high-performance, coaxial, two-way loudspeaker engineered to mount in 24-in square ceiling systems.
