The Bottom Line
Adding a subwoofer may be one of the best investments you can make to improve your live sound, whether starting from scratch or enhancing your existing system. And it’s not just about adding more bass. Using a powered subwoofer minimizes the load placed on other amplifiers and speakers in the system, improving intelligibility and minimizing distortion. Additionally, utilizing a subwoofer isolates low frequencies, enhancing separation and increasing overall coverage of your performance area. The Electro-Voice EKX18SP is a self-powered subwoofer offering 1300 watts of efficient digital power driving an 18" EVS-C transducer. The components are top-shelf, the cabinetry and construction are ready for the road, and the exclusive QuickSmartDSP circuitry offers all the processing tools needed to sound your very best.

A Sub of Substance
The Electro-Voice EKX18SP is constructed using 15mm plywood and finished with an exclusive scuff-resistant EV Coat surface. Powder-coated 18 AWG steel grilles provide excellent protection. Deep-scoop recessed steel handles allow the EKX18SP to be moved with ease. A threaded M20 pole socket provides a solid base for elevating your mid/high speakers, thereby improving clarity and coverage. Slotted bass porting reduces distortion and provides tighter bass response. Inside, you’ll find a custom-designed EVS-C 18" bass transducer providing some serious muscle to push out those all-important lows. Lightweight, reliable, and energy efficient, the onboard digital amplifier delivers 1300 watts of power. Intelligent Thermal Management relies on multiple sensors tied to a variable-speed fan that keeps everything running cool and protects the voice coil. Input 1 and Input 2 are both equipped with individual XLR+1/4" TRS combo input jacks; an XLR output for each input is also provided for passing the signal along to the midrange and high frequency loudspeakers in your system.

Exclusive QuickSmartDSP
Accessed via the multi-function Master Volume knob and paired with an easy-to-read LCD screen, the QuickSmartDSP provides user access to sound-enhancing circuitry that ensures optimum performance in any venue. When using a subwoofer, it is important to select the correct crossover frequency. The EKX18SP offers crossover points of 80Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz, and 150Hz. In addition, there are also crossover points that were designed to specifically match other Electro-Voice portable sound products, including 12" and 15" powered loudspeakers in the EKX, ELX, and ZLX families. Other DSP options include choosing the program mode, such as music playback (MUSIC), live sound (LIVE), or club use (EDM). Cardioid Control Technology allows multiple EKX18SP powered subwoofers to be deployed in a single sound system, increasing bass coverage for the listening audience while reducing bass buildup in the stage area. Up to five custom settings can be stored and recalled on demand, while the Lock feature prevents unintentional altering of any settings. Additional menus control the LCD’s brightness, contrast, and dimming time for convenient viewing, as well as parameters for the Power LED, which can be set to indicate On or Off, or may be used as a Peak/Limiter indicator.

Keep it protected!
Protect the EKX18SP sub with a stylish and durable Electro Voice EKX18SCVR Padded Cover! (sold separately) Proudly displaying the bold E-V logo, this cover blocks dirt, dust, and the elements and helps to negate the effects of bumps and impacts. All of this while allowing access to the hand grips for easy transportation.

What is your opinion of this product?
Brilliant engineering marvel by Electro-voice! Several Club owners have told me it's one of finer sound systems they've heard in their establishment and politely asked if I could lower the DB's !
