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

        Comments about Paiste Alpha Series 17" Sensitive China Cymbal:

        The ZLX12 is a great portable speaker. It has punchy bass, crispy-clear highs, and gets plenty loud. It is also extremely lightweight. This speaker also comes with a built-in DSP processor, which allows you to easily set options like EQ (manual & presets), as well as designating how it should sound based on where it's positioned (speaker stand, wall bracket, or as a floor monitor). Works great as a practice amp, floor monitor, or as a part of a small PA!

          Comments about Paiste Alpha Series 17" Sensitive China Cymbal:

          Another excellent powered speaker from EV. These speakers provide a solid punch for something of this weight and price. The built in dsp makes it very simple to tweak settings to your sepcific needs without the need for external processing. This makes for a quick,easy setup with minimal cables. I would suggest these to speakers to any band or DJ looking for a portable sound system. The 15"s give you a little more low end, and more volume than the 12"s without adding a ton of weight

              1000 Watts of peak power. I have installed these speakers in several location around the area. They sound great in clubs, churches, and even outdoor events. I love the fact that I can boost the low end and not even need a sub. Two xlr inputs and even an aux 1/8" input for ipod. The only problem I've seen with these is the led light goes out in the front.

                Great speaker for the price.
                Perfect for DJs, small clubs and restaurants, presentations or traveling musicians looking for a quick and easy setup. Reasonably lightweight for powered speakers and solid EV sound quality. Not a bad choice for those looking for a step up from the Samson "Auro" series. The back has 2 combo inputs (XLR and 1/4") as well as an LED display screen that allows you to change through different sound modes such as: Club, Live, Speech, etc...making it very versatile.

                  Presets for for mobile DJ, band, public address all built in. AND you can still add or decrease treble and bass seperately from the presets! Dual combo xlr or 1/4" with volume control plus an aux (1/8") input. XLR output to link more. Keep control for any application. Also has setting for when you add subwoofers.

No more do you have to worry about carrying extra gear to your next gig. These just plug in and are ready to bring the house down. EV has always been a leader in quality products and customer service and these certainly don't disappoint!

                      If you are looking for a speaker with great sound that is light weight you have found what you are looing for. Digital readout on the back works well and is a must for all the different applications you can do with it.

                      You will not be dissapointed with this speaker.
