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

        These were a big upgrade from some lower end powered house brand powered speakers that I did have in my rehearsal space. They are more articulate and a ton louder than my previous speakers.

        When I bought these speakers, I had two concerns:

        1. These speakers were listed as used/open box. They were only a few bucks cheaper than brand new, but I figured that I'm not all that concerned about a scratch or two. I will put my own on the speakers soon enough. They came in their original packaging and I haven't really seen a scratch on them.

        2. At this price point, they wouldn't be a big improvement over my current, low end powered speakers. I'm not audiophile, but it's a night and day difference. Cleaner sounding and way louder, we don't have any problems using these speakers in our rehearsal space to get over our drums and guitars in our loud (probably too loud) rock band.

        At less than half the cost of the QSC K12 speakers, I don't think it's a fair comparison. For everything else in this price range, I felt like these speakers stood out for me.

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

          The Electro Voice ZLX12p is probably one of the best speakers you can get in this price range. Its is perfect for the mobile DJ in the sense that it is very light weight but still packs a good punch, even for being a 12 inch woofer. It has a micro processor in the back (which has been seen in a lot of powered EV speakers lately) which gives you the option to choose different sound presets, crossover types and even an EQ. It also has combo jack inputs in the back so that the speaker can take either an XLR or a 1/4 inch connection. Overall this is the perfect speaker for mobile applications.

              Great sounding speaker for DJ, Live Sound and Event applications.

              Built in, easy to use DSP (Digital Signal Processing) to let you create the sound your looking for.

              Great Value for under $400.

                The Electro Voice ZLX-12P is by far one of the few PA speakers that are sure to deliver quality for a low price. It is a very lightweight portable system that is very simple to use for anyone. Compared to other 12 inch systems, the controls are relatively simple as well. Built in to the system is a digital display that shows your levels along with separate functions to adjust the high and low EQ settings.

                  My favorite feature in the new ZLX series is its digital display that alerts you when your levels are peaking. A close second would be its superior portability due to the multiple handles across their rugged build. I've always wanted to invest in ElectroVoice's quality & clarity; they've made that easy with ZLX's great new price points.

                      I have a pair of these speakers and I love them. I use them in my practice space and for live performances, as well. They are relatively light-weight, loud and clear and have a small stage footprint. The different EQ settings let you dial in a specific sound and the clear LED screens make it easy to read in a dark club. Recommended.
