EV Sentry I Monitor Components

Woofer, Tweeter, Crossover and baffle for an EV Sentry I Broadcast monitor. No cabinet is included.
Manufacturer: EV Electro-Voice
Availability: 1 in stock

Judging from the crossover layout and input transformer taps, these compontents are from the Sentry I, not the Sentry IA which was 8Ω only.   The drivers look like the SP-12 and T35, but the woofer frame is wrong and there are no markings on either driver to indicate the actual model.   

 These components were removed from a Mono monitoring setup in a TV broadcast Control Room.   All are in very good condition.   

  • Cast frame 12 inch woofer with a Whizzer cone
  • Compression Horn Tweeter and driver
  • EV Sentry 1000 crossover
  • Baffle board with grille 


Here are some of the specifications from an old EV Sentry I brochure.  Please note that these measurements include a cabinet:

  • Frequency Response: 30 - 20,000 Hz
  • EIA Sensitivity Rating: 49 db
  • Impedance: 16-150-600 ohms
