The Electro-Voice EKX 12 is engineered for precise coverage and superior sound quality at high SPLs.

With its paltry 38 pound compact platform, the Electro-Voice EKX12 is just the ticket for mobile musicians and DJ’s, but is also equally at home in live club fixed installs as well.

The magic behind this active cabinet begins with a high-efficiency 1400 W Peak Class-D power amplifier that delivers up to 131 dB SPL utilizing  transducers designed and engineered by EV and continues with a proprietary 12” EVS-12M woofer and 1-inch DH-1M HF titanium compression driver.

Moreover, its QuickSmart DSP features best-in-class processing, EV’s signature single-knob user interface, and intuitive menu navigation, along with four “set-it-and-forget-it” presets (Music, Live, Speech, Club). Further still is EV’s patented Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) waveguide design that provides precise and consistent audio coverage and are custom designed and optimized per ETX Powered Loudspeaker model.

EV’s award-winning industrial design – with robust 15 mm, plywood enclosures and durable EVCoat finish – ensures that the Electro-Voice EKX 12 speakers look as great as they sound.  

Features:
  • 12-inch EVS-12M woofer and 1-inch DH-1M HF titanium compression driver
  • High-efficiency 1400 W Class-D power amplifier delivers up to 131 dB peak SPL

  • Visual monitoring of limiter status, input level control and meters, and master volume control to ensure optimal gain structure
  • Intelligent thermal management with a variable-speed fan controlled by multiple onboard sensors
  • EV-patented Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) waveguide design provides precise and consistent coverage

Comments about Electro-Voice Ekx-12P 12" Two-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

The bar where I run a weekly open mic uses a pair of these with a matching sub, the sound is phenomenal! In addition to the quality of sound, the DSP is second to none--easy to use, and extremely versatile.

    Comments about Electro-Voice Ekx-12P 12" Two-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

    1500 watts of quality sound! EV knocked it out of the park with the EKX-12P! With digital controls for 3-band EQ and a built in DSP, you can be sure to dial in the sound for whatever venue you choose to throw this at. Tight sound means that the Bass is controlled and the entire frequency is heard, though this also pairs up nicely to a subwoofer. The EQ presets are also very helpful to quickly set up for the intended use of the speakers. Great for Live Sound!

    Up There With The Best

    Comments about Electro-Voice Ekx-12P 12" Two-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

    Amazing. This EV has a huge, rich, clean sound clear across the spectrum. The built in DSP allows for a wide range of customization at the push of a button. You just can't get a speaker this good at a better price, especially with a wooden box. Great for bands, DJs, churches, and venues. Seriously one of the best speakers on the market right now at a very doable price.

    Performance at a Great Price

    Comments about Electro-Voice Ekx-12P 12" Two-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

    Never missing a step, EV has once again put out another fantastic product to add to their already impressive lineup. With intuitive controls, 3-band EQ, and a clear, powerful sound, the EKX delivers performance far beyond the competition. Get a pair of these speakers, perhaps even the larger 15", and match them with the 18" sub and prepare to be blown away.

    This is a hands-on review from Anthony @ Sam Ash Torrance.

      EV is one of the top loudspeaker companies out and with good reason! These speakers are no exception and deliver high spl, high headroom, low weight and a compact design that makes it so several can be easily transported even in a hatchback. Grab a pair or ten for a great sounding system!

        This is a fantastic speaker, 1400 watts of power is guaranteed to deliver! The DSP processing built into the speaker means no more need for racks of equipment. Add an EKX Sub with a pair of these and you have a small PA to be reckoned with!

        One of the best in the Market

        Staff Reviewer

        Comments about Electro-Voice Ekx-12P 12" Two-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

        Last year EV came out with the EKX line and it is by far their best speaker. 1500 watts of power and a 3 band EQ for tone control this speaker is perfect for any church or club. Wooden body allows for sound to have a nice sustain adding to the quality of sound you get. Even with the 12 inch speaker this guy has a great kick to it.

          Comments about Electro-Voice Ekx-12P 12" Two-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

          Amazing sound and performance. Bridging the gap between the ELX and ETX, This speaker definitely upholds the EV tradition of reliable and sleek live performance. Wooden cab and 1,400 watts, whether you're pole mounting or flying these, they will definitely handle the job. A step up speaker for someone wanting to take that next step in audio performance.
