Pro features in a portable package.

Over 90 years of know-how in every box – With such an extensive track record of proven audio innovation, it’s safe to say that Electro-Voice has a deep understanding of what goes into making good sound. Where our competitors often rely on off-the-shelf components from third-party manufacturers, EV stands apart as one of the few pro audio brands to design and engineer its drivers and woofers in-house from the ground up. Our transducers are legendary for their sound quality and reliability, but it doesn’t stop there. From our invention of the humbucking coil back in 1934 to our latest patents, EV continues to push the parameters of what is possible in sound reinforcement, utilizing the industry’s most sophisticated design software, most extreme measurement processes and most grueling physical tolerance tests to take the performance of our products to the next level. ZLX encapsulates EV’s heritage of engineering excellence, making those decades of audio know-how more accessible than ever before.

Energy-efficient engineering with no compromises in performance – EV is renowned for the quality of engineering that we put into everything we make, at every price point, for every application. ZLX represents that commitment. Our products are designed and tested above and beyond industry norms to achieve the highest levels of performance with the latest transducer and amplifier technology. We stand behind the specs we publish with our products.

The “Big Wattage” numbers that most manufacturers publish to sell their speakers have little to do with what actually matters: acoustic output.

Many customers perceive high wattage ratings as a key selling point. However, EV’s goal with powered speakers – in which the internal components are designed to work together optimally to achieve the desired level of performance in a given format/class at a given price point -- is achieving sustained maximum SPL with minimal distortion – superior all-around acoustic performance at the system’s highest output capacity. The quality of our engineering means we can reach the same high SPLs with full bandwidth sound quality while using less wattage – we continuously strive to evolve energy-efficient speaker design. Many loudspeaker manufacturers boast of super-high wattage numbers, but their products simply don't sound good when pushed to their upper limits of their stated output capacity, with distortion being the main issue. ZLX will sound powerful, crisp and clean, even at its highest volume.

The ZLX12P 12-inch Two-Way Powered Loudspeaker
Delivering performance well beyond what you’d expect from a speaker of this size, the ZLX12P produces an impressive 1000 watts for a maximum SPL of 126 dB. Consistent coverage is realized courtesy of ZLX’s Constant Directivity Waveguide’s firm control of the high frequencies, while Electro-Voice’s patented split-baffle design of the ZLX keeps a tight rein on phase cancellation anomalies. Optimized driver time-alignment maximizes direct impact from 50 Hz – 20 kHz, delivering uniform response across the audible frequency spectrum.

Weighing in at just over 34 lbs, the lightweight, resilient composite-constructed enclosure features top and side-mounted “Hi-Low” grips for easy transport and pole mounting, and the black powder-coated 18-gauge steel grille securely protects the components within.

Components
Loaded with a 12” Electro-Voice EVS-12K woofer, the ZLX12P is capable of reproducing low-frequency tones all the way down to 50 Hz. The high end is handled by EV’s 1.5” high-frequency titanium compression driver, the DH-1K, and extends up to 20 kHz. The powerful 1000-watt Class-D amplifier offers an abundance of headroom yet is extremely light, contributing to the exceptional portability of this cabinet.

The Back Panel
Beneath the clean and sleek back panel lies a wealth of processing power. Use the one-touch knob (defaults to Master Volume) to scroll through and select ZLX12P’s menu options as they appear on the bright blue LCD screen. Here you’ll find handy presets that optimize the cabinet for music, live, speech, and club use. Two dual-function XLR-1/4” combo jacks with independent gain controls guarantee compatibility with the most popular plug types and just about any input level. And the 3.5 mm input jack is perfect for connecting a tablet or phone for simple audio playback. There’s even a male XLR output for daisy-chaining multiple cabinets together with ease.

Best in Class
A rugged, compact, reliable and powerful sound reinforcement solution, the versatile ZLX-12P outperforms everything else in its class. Electro-Voice boasts that ZLX are “The best-selling speakers in the world.” With such a comprehensive and advanced set of features, we’ve no reason to doubt them.

Amazing, Loud, Rugged, Light & Beautiful

Product Review

My band is using Mackie Thumps and I wanted something more for my solo dates and for my studio (as live room monitors). These DID NOT disappoint. The are some of the most natural sounding PA speakers I have ever owned, although I still have a sweet spot for my old Altec Lansings from the 70's. :) They are well made, appear very rugged and can be quite loud without distortion. In my studio, I can fill the live room (13x21) with crystal clear, loud playback with the gain at only 30%. Took my friend's advice and played some of my originals through them and actually heard some nice things I didn't on the mixing monitors or even headphones. Playing my keyboard through them gave a new reality to the acoustic piano sounds. I compared them to similarly priced JBLs, Mackies and RCF. To my ears, the ZLX12Ps are heads above all three. I bought the 2 speakers/2 cases/2 stands/2 cords package, and I am quite impressed with these little powerhouses. Can't wait to get out and gig with them. If you need a wonderful powered speaker, I don't think you go wrong with the EV ZLX12Ps. Reviews of the other pieces to follow. But before I go, some of the testing I did. I already mentioned the playback and the keyboard, but I also tested out a variety of mics for vocals and instruments though my Behring X32 and was pleasantly surprised again at the strength, character, and clarity of these speakers.

Outstanding!!

Product Review

My wife purchased one EV 12' speaker for me for Christmas. I wanted to use them when I perform live so I purchased another one. I used them in conjunction with the 12' subwoofers for an outdoor event and no one could believe that they were on 12's!! Crisp and clear output...I can't wait to use them at my next event in 2wks!!

Sound great / power rating exaggerated / Not durable

Product Review

All EV products are not created equally these days. I have a pair of the 12” version of the ZLX series with covers. The grills bend very easily (I have the factory covers and move them myself and still...) - far too easily for what is designed to be roadworthy gear. Sound is great and performance is solid - as they describe it. I will also say that the power ratings on these EV’s is suspect - not sure what criteria is being used these days but to call these 1000W RMS speakers seems quite the exaggeration. No way. More like 300W performance IMHO. One of the power lights on the grill stopped working a month after I got the cabinet. So - dunno. I use them primarily for stereo keyboard monitors and they get the job done. But be sure you know your mission before deciding on this particular product model. I have other Behringer cabs I bought from AMS which are bulletproof and less money.
