The SC407 might be the smallest of EVE Audio’s SC4 series of four-way active monitors, but they’re still pretty substantial. Huw Price discovers whether four really is fabulous

EVE’s SC4 series comprises two models – the SC407 and the SC408. The driver sizes may be different, but both have four drive units. Two 6.5” woofers handle the bass and low mids from 35Hz up to a crossover frequency of 280Hz. The 4” mid-range woofer carries on up to 3KHz, whereupon the ART tweeter kicks in.

Both the midrange driver and tweeter are mounted on a substantial metal plate that can be rotated to allow the SC407 to be used vertically or horizontally. The default orientation of the tweeter/midrange driver plate is set for horizontal enclosure placement.

In practice, this would be practical only on the meter bridge of a sizable mixing console or a substantial monitor speaker shelf. For vertical placement, the plate must be rotated to ensure the tweeter is above the midrange driver.

The bass and midrange woofers may be different in diameter, but the construction is very similar. Both feature EVE’s low-distortion copper cap magnet system and glass fibre-coated diaphragms formed with a honeycomb structure to be lightweight and stiff. These are called SiverCones, and they are the reason for the SC in the model designations.
