F.A.Q.

Most probably the DIP switches on the rear panel of the monitor/subwoofer are set so that these functions are blocked. This switchable blocking feature is intended to prevent unintentionally losing the settings of an optimally configured system. For more information, refer to the User's Manual, in the "Operation > DIP Switches" section.

The input signal's level is too high and is overloading the monitor/subwoofer input. Please reduce the level of the signal source and increase the level of the monitor/subwoofer.

At the factory all our products receive a minimum 24 hrs non-stop burn-in time, which is part of the regular QC procedure we do for each monitor and subwoofer. We recommend giving them 24 more hours (can be spread over several days) at reasonable high volume before you using the speakers or subwoofer in a serious project.

The maximum input level is 8dBu, which corresponds to 5.78dBV (1.95Veff).
This allows the direct connection of devices with a maximum nominal level of: German Broadcast Studio Level (ARD): +6dBu; professional studio level: +4dBu; and consumer Hi-Fi level: -10dBV=-7.78dBu. When a higher level overloads the input, the red LED ring blinks, in which case the external signal level must be reduced.

* LFE = Low Frequency Enhancer

These suggestions are intended solely as guidance. The selection of the right subwoofer depends of many other factors as well.

First option:
Connect both subwoofers individually to the source (L in, R in) and one satellite to each sub (L out, R out). In that case, the volume of each subwoofer and each satellite must be adjusted individually.

Second option:
Connect one subwoofer to the source (L in, R in), daisy chain the second subwoofer (L out, R out, L in, R in) and both satellites to the second sub (L out, R out). In that case, the System Volume on subwoofer 2 (slave) should be set at 0dB. The master subwoofer (1) allows you to adjust the overall system volume. The volume of each subwoofer must be adjusted individually.

The sound emitted by a loudspeaker is always influenced by its proximity to a wall, regardless of whether the bass reflex port is on the front or rear panel. The distance to the wall affects certain frequencies — depending on their wavelength — by boosting or attenuating them.
To reduce direct reflections from the back wall, the speakers ought to be flush mounted or placed at a large enough distance from the wall. We recommend placing the monitors at least 20 cm (8 in) away from the back wall, although this value will vary depending on the shape and material of the wall itself.

Explanations:
The sound energy produced by the speaker, especially in the lower frequencies (below 150 Hz), is propagated in all directions. When a monitor is placed in front of a soundproof surface (a wall, for instance), sound is reflected by the latter. In an ideal situation, the sound energy would be doubled (direct + reflected sound), which translates in a 6 dB increase. Likewise, in an ideal situation, sound energy is quadrupled (increased in 12 db) when the speaker leans against two boundary surfaces (a wall and the floor, for example).
When your EVE Audio monitors stand too close to a wall, you can use the speaker's Low Filter to prevent the lower frequencies from being boosted.

1. No boundary surfaces 2. One boundary surface = +6dB

3. Two boundary surfaces = +12dB 4. Three boundary surfaces = +18dB

The SC3070 is a 3-way studio monitor with asymmetrical design. For this reason, it is available in two different versions for the right side and the left side of the stereo field.
For the right side of the stereo field, choose the SC3070 version whose woofer is on the right-hand side. For the left side of the stereo field, choose the SC3070 version whose woofer is on the left-hand side. In other words, the tweeter of each monitor should be placed on the inner side of the stereo field.

This setup reduces the impact of reflecting surfaces between the tweeters.In a narrow room, you may place the tweeters on the outer side of the stereo field in order to extend the width of the soundscape. However this might affect your ability to perceive the position of the signals in the sound field because of the increased reflections generated by the side walls.

The Woofer Sel switch allows you to exchange the position of the woofer and the mid-frequency driver. That way you can focus primarily on the position of the speakers in the studio. Afterwards you can set each monitor according to its individual position. And, in case you have SC305 or SC307 monitors, the Woofer Sel switch is your first step.
If the Woofer Sel switch is in the lower position, the woofer is on the left side and the mid-frequency driver on the right (when looking at the speaker from the front). If the Woofer Sel switch is in the upper position, the woofer is on the right side and the mid-frequency driver on the left (when looking at the speaker from the front).

In a stereo setup, we recommend placing the mid-frequency drivers in a symmetrical position on the inner side of the stereo field.

Yes, and in that case please put the rear Woofer Sel. Switch differently depending on the listeners position.

If the ears are below the tweeter line, the bass woofer (orange) of each monitor should be set above the tweeter:

If the listening position is higher than the tweeter line, the bass woofer (orange) of each monitor should be set below the tweeter:

The tweeter of your EVE Audio monitors should be ideally placed at the same height as your ears. If this is not possible tilt the monitors so that the tweeter is directed to your ears.

Model Ideal distance between monitor and listening position
SC203 0.5 - 1.5 m (1.6 - 4.9 ft)
SC204 0.5 - 2 m (1.6 - 6.6 ft)
SC205 0.7 to 2 m (2.3 to 6.6 ft)
SC207 1 - 2.5 m (3.3 - 8.2 ft)
SC208 1.2 - 2.5 m (3.9 - 8.2 ft)
SC305 1 - 2 m (3.3 - 6.6 ft)
SC307 1.5 - 2.5 m (4.9 - 8.2 ft)
SC3070 1 - 3 m (3.3 - 9.8 ft)
SC407 1.5 - 3 m (4.9 - 9.8 ft)
SC408 1.5 - 3.5 m (4.9 - 11.5 ft)
SC3010 1.5 - 4 m (4.9 - 13.1 ft)
SC3012 2 - 4.5 m (6.6 - 14.8 ft)

These values are only meant as a reference and depend a lot on the characteristics of the room. In live rooms you will be forced to reduce the distance, while in dead rooms the distance to the loudspeakers can be larger.

The so-called "stereo triangle" is the best way to place speakers in a stereo setup, i.e. the monitors and the listening position should form an equilateral triangle.

Read more about monitor speaker position in a stereo setup in our product manuals, section "Positioning > Seteo Setup".

The positioning of the two satellites should be done in the same manner as in a stereo setup (see previous question in the F.A.Q).
The subwoofer should be placed on the ground between both satellites. Considering that low frequencies are omnidirectional, the subwoofer does not have to be centered exactly between the two satellites.

Read more about monitor speakers and subwoofer position in a stereo+subwoofer setup in our product manuals, section "Positioning > Stereo Setup + Subwoofer (2.1)".

The positioning of the two front speakers and the subwoofer should be done in the same manner as in a stereo setup with subwoofer (see previous question in the F.A.Q).
Place the center monitor directly in front of the listening position, i.e. right in the center between both front satellites.
The rear satellites should form an isosceles triangle with the listening position forming an angle of 140°.

No, it is not necessary thanks to the almost quadratical opening on the front panel of our AMT tweeters. However, if available, the protection grid ought to be rotated 90 degrees.

In principle, you can, however this entails a remarkable reduction of the optimal listening spot. Place the speakers in a symmetrical position with the AMT tweeters on the outside. Avoid at all costs placing the mid-frequency driver on the outer side.

Yes, it is possible. But make sure that the heat from the integrated back-mounted amplifiers can be dissipated properly. For the bass reflex port to work correctly, there should be at least 2 cm (SC20X and SC30X) or 3cm (SC40X) of separation from the wall.

The front panel of the monitor ought to be flush mounted to the wall. That way you can avoid interferences and refractions that might negatively affect sound reproduction. Also consider that mid and low frequencies are enhanced due to the wall. Use the Low-Shelf and Desk controls to adjust these frequency ranges to your personal taste.

We recommend placing your monitors on a heavy, non-resonating surface. Make sure that the speakers sit firmly on the surface and do not rattle. Try to avoid placing the speakers on top of a shelf or on light, unfilled speaker stands that can produce unwanted and clearly audible natural resonances in the mid frequency range.

Almost all loudspeakers, including EVE Audio monitors, use permanent magnets that create a constant magnetic field. Back in the day when almost all recording studios and production facilities had CRT monitors, the latter caused interferences with the magnetic field of the speakers. To avoid such interferences, some loudspeakers were magnetically shielded by default, while some others could be shielded afterwards, even if the shield had no effect on the front side of the speakers.

With the arrival of LCD and plasma displays, all CRT monitors were banned from the studios. Thus, magnetic shielding is not necessary anymore, which is the reason why we decided not to shield our studio monitors.

Nevertheless, we can find other interference-susceptible devices in recording studios, especially magnetic storage devices, like hard disks, magnetic cards, magnetic tape machines, etc. So, we advise you to make sure that such devices are not too close to the speakers. As a general rule of thumb, the magnetic field is almost unmeasurable at a distance of approximately 30 cm (1 ft).

If you have a computer with a modern SSD hard disk there should be no problem whatsoever.

You can leave your monitors/subwoofer in standby mode (just press the button for three seconds) as long as you want. Your speakers will not be damaged in any way. However, even though the power consumption sinks to only 1 watt, do think in the environment and consider turning them off completely when not in use.

Yes, you can use a main power switcher to turn on/off your EVE Audio monitors/subwoofer together with the rest of your gear. All the settings of your EVE Audio monitors are saved when powered off. And they are automatically recalled when powered on again.

Every EVE Audio monitor is supplied with an acoustically neutral metal grille to protect the tweeter. Generally speaking, more protection is not needed in studio environments.

The connector behind the rubber cap is intended solely for service purposes. The rubber cap has no use for the user. Please do not manipulate the rubber cap to avoid any damage to the sensitive electronics behind it.

With an input voltage of 130mV (-15.5 dBu or -17.2 dBV) the sound pressure level amounts to 90 dBSPL.
