Clean sound


Quality clean sound is the key to enjoy the music. This product produces it.




I absolutely recommend this products. How it sounded & Price


This EV model sounded clean. Adjusted it to live and stay at 0db or 1db and with two EV EKX subs at 3 db hook it up directly to my mixer without the need to use my bbe 882i maximer. You can't go wrong with these products, it's absolutely satisfying with the great deal given by salesman Zack inTirrance California. It's a five star overall experience.



I would buy this product again.


The speakers I purchased have a lot of power. I Would recommend them to anyone. They are electro voice ekx18sp . Only for small events though no more than 300 people. I bought three they all work great, don't get hot. For a big event need more than 3 though. Good brand and good quality.



A friend in LOW places


I had planned to get the JBL PRX subs, and I'm sure they're great too, but I decided the JBL's are just too big to be hauling around to the various bars where my band plans to play. The size of these EV's I believe is more manageable, and I really like having dedicated subs, so our mains can focus on the higher frequencies. It's pretty cool when you feel these subs send low sound waves thru your body's core...



Drops HEAVY Bass! A must buy!


Thumps! Hits HARD! Best of course when used in a corner. Does not have bluetooth to control with your phone. Light weight to carry in and out of your vehicle.



Best subwoofers !!!


So far the best subwoofers ive had in years. Little and can pack a punch!



EV EKX 18 sp


First off this is sub #4. Was attracted to this sub because of its performance and the realitve light weight at 72lbs. Now that I have 4 subs I'm looking forward to running them in the cardiod mode. If your not sure what that is look it up on the EV site.



Yes I would buy it again.


I use the product for my music sound in church and it works very well for what I intended it for. I wanted a sound that gives bottom or depth to the drums and bass guitar in the overall music, which I got from the product.



It's a great sounding subwoofer


It's great of what it is capable for smaller halls and It does have it limits to bigger halls tho. But it sounds great to me.
