Don't let your eyes deceive you; the SC205 might seem like a small speaker, but it definitely packs a punch. Like the name implies, it's a SilverCone two-way system with a 5" woofer and with an extended bass frequency response and astounding output level, the SC205 will easily fill your room with exceptional sound. The SC205 also comes with the convenience of threaded screw inserts on the bottom and the back. That way, you can mount your SC205 on a regular microphone or speaker stand, or use the back plate for different wall mounting options available on the market.
The SC205 uses a 5" SilverCone woofer for an extended bass response. This very stiff diaphragm is honeycomb structured and glass fibre coated. Like in other models, it's driven by a sophisticated magnet system that uses a 1" voice coil responsible for delivering a greater linear excursion. All in all, this produces a bigger dynamic range than you would naturally assume from a speaker of these proportions. The result is an unsurpassed audio transparency that, when coupled with the proprietary AMT tweeter and PWM amplifier, will surprise you with a very powerful and precise low end.
The AMT (Air Motion Transformer) tweeter is an EVE proprietary technology that follows the rule of not using "off-the-shelf" components when looking for the best possible results. The preciseness and detail in the high frequency, along with the general tightness of the bass and mid-range frequencies, will make the SC205 equally adequate for use on the road or in studio.
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.
And if you always avoid digital processing, we've got you covered. The DSP engine is supported with a high quality A/D converter 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.
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.
EVE has opted for a large rear rectangular port with no hard edges for their bass port designs. 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. With no holes to look at every time you glance at your speakers.

Comments about Eve Audio Sc205 2-Way 5" Active Studio Monitor (Single):
I bought these speakers to use for music practice of my vocal jazz quartet (like Norah Jones and Diana Krall) thinking they might also be nice for gigs at people's homes. They blow me away. Their sound quality is amazing and my bass player can't believe how good they sound for their size. I eventually bought an Eve Audio matching subwoofer to complete the set, mostly I did this for gigging.
They are not able to produce very loud sounds like my QSC K-12's and matching QSC woofer (of course this is true, you cannot fight physics). Another very minor issue is I would loose the magnetic grills on the speaker tweeters when transporting the speakers. So, I just super-glued them on. Problem solved.
Finally, I emailed Eve for more tweeter grills and the were fantastic to deal with.
I know there are a ton on near field monitors out there, I spent months deciding. I love these little speakers and you will too. Buy them, quite looking forever at all the options. You won't be sorry.
