3-Way 10" Main Monitor
For large recording and mastering studios, film and television post-production facilities, cinema applications and in-wall installations, nothing beats our main monitors SC3010 and SC3012.
Both models – SC3010 and SC3012 – feature a very powerful amplifier array, with one amplifier custom specified per driver. All drivers found in these models were completely developed from scratch to deliver a perfect balance of high sound pressure levels, low distortion and optimised directivity. Our proprietary AMT RS6 will redefine your perception of how a tweeter should perform. The RS6 was especially designed for unparalleled precise reproduction, even at high output levels, which will definitely help you take your mixes to the next level. We've also taken great care in the design of the front of the speaker, using an ultra-stiff front plate made out of a combination of rigid plywood and a special inner construction to reduce unwanted resonances. The result? Smooth directivity, very low distortion and a well defined middle and upper frequency range combined with a powerful and tight low end.
The SC3010/SC3012 systems were also built with in-wall installations in mind. When used in this manner, acoustic filter modifications can be engaged by adjusting the filter controls to "inwall". And a set of high-density quality foam is provided so that the backfiring bass ports can be physically closed, improving the quality and focus of the speaker's response.
The stylish silver module in the middle of the speaker not only houses the midrange woofer and our AMT RS6 tweeter, but it can also be rotated 90-degrees, allowing the speakers to be positioned either horizontally or vertically. This helps to preserve control room sight lines and further optimises acoustic performance.
The SC3010 is the smallest of the biggest in our range of main monitors and able to reproduce the entire audible frequency range with an ultra-low level of distortion.
One 10" SilverCone bass woofer, with an extreme long excursion, provides for an extraordinarily clean low frequency reproduction down to 29 Hz (-3 dB). Its hexagonal glass fibre layered diaphragm will easily reproduce all audio content, even at higher than usual SPL's.
The SC3010 also features our newly developed 5" midrange unit. Its glass fibre layered Rohacel™ sandwich diaphragm delivers a clear and detailed midrange frequency reproduction. Both the 10" SilverCone woofer and 5" SilverCone midrange are equipped with our very low distortion copper cap magnet system.
Exclusive to SC3010 – and its larger sibling SC3012 – is our newly developed Air Motion Transformer AMT RS6. This new AMT is 2.5 times bigger than the RS1, RS2 and RS3 Air Motion Transformer units, and it is a crucial part of the system as it helps to couple the middle and high frequencies with great precision. Our team was able to engineer the RS6 to set its crossover frequency at 1800 Hz, a very important frequency for human hearing and subsequently, music production.
Each driver is provided with its own separate PWM amplifier that is able to deliver a short-term output power of 250 W per tweeter and midrange channel and 800 W for the low-end driver. With a maximum output level of 114 dB (SPL @ 1 m), you will definitely be able to judge your mixes precisely, whatever their final intended output level is.
The SC3010 is a three-way system that combines powerful bass reproduction with a very transparent and present mid-range and crystal clear high frequency reproduction. Make no mistakes: whether you're producing your new hip-hop hit or mastering the contemporary works, the SC3010's will be there for you and they will tell it like it is. Bad mixes no longer have a place to hide.
As with every other EVE Audio speaker, you get both balanced XLR inputs and unbalanced RCA inputs for greater convenience.
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. 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. Please visit our DSP page to learn more about our DSP philosophy.
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.
A lot of attention went into the development of our bass ports. After much deliberation we opted for a large rear rectangular port with no hard edges, as these provided the best results without unwanted side effects. 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.
