Funktion-One Launches Highly Versatile Evolution 2


Funktion-One introduced its latest product innovations at ISE 2024 in Barcelona, including the extremely versatile, high-performance Evo 2. The latest addition to the Evo Series has evolved from the iconic Res 2, which was one of Funktion-One’s earliest product releases over 25 years ago.

Evo 2 is a medium dispersion, fully horn-loaded, 3-way loudspeaker, which features the latest Funktion-One driver technology and highly refined tuning. Funktion-One will hold short Evo 2 demos every hour on Stand 7G800, starting at 10:25am each day.

Funktion-One Founder Tony Andrews comments: “We’re very excited to introduce the Evo 2 at ISE. We’ve managed to get exceptional performance from a smaller loudspeaker. Greater precision and detail and more consistent directivity. We can’t wait for people to hear it.”

Evo 2’s outstanding performance capabilities and versatile format make it very appealing across a range of live event and install applications, including as a four-point club system or two-wide flown system for medium sized venues. Its manageable size and innovative Butterfly Plate rigging system enable quick and easy deployment. Evo 2 is perfectly suited to ground stacking for small events, flying singly or in pairs for wider coverage and larger audience areas, or used as fills supporting Vero, Evo or Vero VX systems. 

Evo 2 can easily be adapted between 3-way active (NL8 tri-amp) or 3-way passive mid/hi (NL4 bi-amp). It is available in standard Funktion-One violet finish or durable black PU coating. A foam backed grille can be added for a more discreet appearance and a custom flight case is also available.

In addition to the Evo 2 launch, Funktion-One will introduce the new Tour Rack and showcase Projection system design software at the show.

Funktion-One’s Tour Rack is a compact, shock mounted, amplifier rack that’s built for the road. It delivers a comprehensive solution for rental users in need of efficient and effective system control and amplification for Funktion-One systems. Tour Rack houses three high power 4-channel DSP-enabled amplifiers and comes complete with 3-phase mains distribution, comprehensive signal distribution and speaker output patch panels.

Funktion-One’s fast and intuitive Projection system design software assists Funktion-One users in designing and optimising arrays for smooth audience coverage and generates detailed venue specific system information. It has a user-friendly interface and feature set that make designing Funktion-One systems as straightforward as possible.

Projection produces accurate 3D direct sound prediction for Vero, Vero VX, Evo 7 and Evo 6 arrays, with many more Funktion-One products available as single loudspeakers. Projection also provides rigging calculations, kit lists and PDF exports of system designs. Funktion-One will demonstrate Projection at ISE and it will be available to download from later in the year.
