The Electro-Voice ELX200 series of powered loudspeakers is a rather impressive blend of high performance and ultra-portability. Not easily achieved, to be sure - but then, EV’s veteran team of talented engineers has always gone the extra mile to offer you the highest-quality products at the best possible price.
ELX200 Series Overview
With the ELX200 Series, you’ll instantly recognize that famous Electro Voice audio quality while you enjoy versatile and accurate control of EV’s endurance-tested, proprietary components — all wrapped up in a super lightweight and very attractive package. Simply stated, the ELX200 Series does more and weighs less, making it the obvious choice for solo artists, full bands, DJs and other mobile entertainers.
Highlights The Electro-Voice ELX200-18SP is the perfect choice for extending the low frequency response of any PA system, and it’s ideally matched with their ELX200-10P, ELX200-12P and ELX200-15P powered speakers. Standing just 23.6” tall and weighing under 64lbs, the ELX200-18SP is easily transportable while fully capable of delivering up to 132 dB SPL of clean, thunderous bass ranging from 145 Hz to all the way down to 40 Hz (-10 dB). How is this even possible? Easy…if you’re EV!
The ELX200-18SP combines a high-efficiency and lightweight Class-D power amplifier with integrated QuickSmartDSP to effortlessly and reliably produce up to 1200 watts. Incorporating a proprietary transducer designed and engineered in-house by Electro-Voice (18” EVS-18L), the ELX200-18SP delivers an abundance of powerful low end with minimal distortion - the ultimate goal of any subwoofer.
Effortless and Accurate Setup
Setup of the ELX200-18SP for specific applications is easy, thanks to three presets (Music, Live, Club) displayed on the large LCD screen. These are selectable by pushing and turning the dual-function Master Vol control. You can also adjust sub/top system-match crossovers (select from 80 Hz, 100 Hz, 120 Hz or 150 Hz for Low Pass) and 3-band EQ, then store and recall your settings via five user-programmable presets. Limiter status is also easily viewable on the LCD.
The Rear Panel
ELX200-18SP features two discrete Inputs utilizing XLR/Balanced ¼” TRS combo jacks. There’s also a balanced XLR Output for each, making daisy-chaining of multiple powered speakers quick and easy. And of course, there’s a Master Vol knob for overall volume control. Simply push and rotate to navigate the QuickSmartDSP functions.
Hi-Tech Control and Monitoring
Just about everyone has a smartphone, iPad, or other tablet these days. But can they use them to control and monitor their sound system? They could with the Electro-Voice ELX200-18SP and Bluetooth’s QuickSmartMobile app for iOS or Android! Want to control your system from front-of-house? No problem. Need to quickly configure up to six ELX200 loudspeakers simultaneously? Done. You’ll even receive immediate notification in the improbable event that your system experiences critical performance issues.
