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.

Electro Voice. ‘Nuff said

What is your opinion of this product?
These speakers have been a perfect addition to my setup. So much so, that I haven’t used any other speaker since. They’ve worked in multiple settings. Sometimes I only use one when I’m playijg smaller acoustic gigs. Pristine and crisp highs while never losing the lower end that EV is so popular for. I’ll never look back at other brands again. I come straight out of my Shure Super 55 and my Martin hd28 into a boss VE8 pedal that goes straight into the speak. It works like a beast of an acoustic amp. Buy them. You won’t regret it.

"Great speaker sounding speaker for the price point."
What is your opinion of this product?
The speaker is great for small to medium sized gigs. Portable, light weight and ideal if you are tired of the heavier gear. The DSP feature is cool for fine tuning the speaker sound, but make sure that you use a subwoofer in larger applications.

Great sound
What is your opinion of this product?
This speaker was chosen over a 15" mackie thump because when I heard them both the sound was very comparable. I bought this one to pair with the original one I bought a few weeks prior. Wow the 2 speakers together are outstanding. I will be ordering 18" subs for both of them. I will review those too. Thanks Eric!!

Very Impressed
What is your opinion of this product?
After losing my gear in a fire years ago, I am starting to reinvest into myself as an all things sound business. I carefully chose this EV system after testing and comparing to other brands, and I can say for the dollar amount the EVs are quite impressive and has me very excited about what’s to come. I will continue to add to my EV system for my business. Definitly worth the dollar, and if you are a sound perfectionist like myself, you’ll be thoroughly impressed.
