Big sound doesn’t need to take up a lot of space. Ideal for main loudspeaker or monitor wedge duties, the ZLX-12 offers the ultimate combination of performance and portability – and always looks great on stage. The compact, lightweight ZLX-12P was designed to give you power and performance beyond the scope of other small-format loudspeakers, making it a standout choice for smaller-venue sound reinforcement or stage-monitoring. Pound for pound, no other similarly sized composite box comes close.

Precision and Control
In the case of ZLX's uncluttered control panel, less really does mean more. Though the multiple dials and switches on other powered loudspeakers may suggest more functionality, ZLX's powerful DSP engine is accessed by a clean single-knob design with LCD display, and actually offers the most precise control and configuration available at its price point. Use the presets to optimize ZLX according to your application (music, live, speech, club) and your location (pole mount, monitor, install) and hear the difference in seconds. Smart design, straightforward operation.

Features:
•  1000 W (Class D); 126 dB max SPL; 50 Hz – 20 kHz
•  12" woofer and 1.5" high-frequency titanium compression driver
•  LCD display and unique single-knob DSP control with presets – quickly optimize ZLX to suit your performance style and space
•  Input level meters and independent amplifier control- ensure optimal gain structure in seconds
•  EV-engineered components matched with a custom-built 1000-W Class-D amplifier for best-in-class sound
•  Lightweight, 34.3 lbs (15.6 kg),  super-durable composite construction with unique hi/lo grip design for effortless pole mounting and portability
•  Patented split-baffle design for superior driver time alignment and enhanced sonic impact and intelligibility

        This speaker is a "Bang for the buck!" Very lightweight due to it's plastic based box. A single control knob/button on the back plate of this speaker is easy to use and work with. The ZLX 12" Powered Speaker Sounds great and is perfect for people looking for cheap reliable POWERED speakers.

            I believe EV has really hit the nail on the head on this one. It is perfect! The sound quality out preforms any other speaker in its class/price range.

              Comments about Electro-Voice ZLX-12P 12" 2-Way Powered PA Cabinet:

              The quality of the ZLX12P's came as a great surprise. Even as a huge fan of EV products, I was not sure what to expect at this price point. Upon hooking up these speakers I was blown away. Nothing in the price range comes close to the sound quality these speakers produce. For mobile DJ's, bands, or singer-songwriters these speakers a great portable choice. They are lightweight, and pack enough power for small and mid-sized venues. The frequency response is great, although I would suggest adding a subwoofer if you want heavy, chest-thumping bass (the EV Live X 18" powered sub compliments these speakers very well).Overall, I think the 12 inch ZLX are some of the best values in powered speakers. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

                Comments about Electro-Voice ZLX-12P 12" 2-Way Powered PA Cabinet:

                This product was incredible. I just switched over from a passive system to a powered one and this was the speaker I chose. When paired with the EV zxa1 12 in. sub, this system produces a lot of good quality sound. I kept turning up the volume and the more I did the more I was blown away. I reached an uncomfortable volume of about 105 dB and still wasn't peaking.

                Such a great product with a lot of bang for your buck.

                  Bought it at Sam Ash for a great deal. The quality Of the EV is probably one of the best investment you can have if you're looking for a great set of powered speakers. Highly recommended.
