The EKX Series is the newest member of the Electro-Voice portable loudspeaker family, suitable for a wide range of sound reinforcement scenarios, including musicians, DJs, and live/club/installed sound applications.
The new series is comprised of eight models (four powered and four passive), including 12-inch and 15-inch two-way models and 15-inch and 18-inch subwoofers. EKX is positioned above the ZLX and ELX series and below the ETX series.
All models incorporate EV-engineered loudspeaker and amplifier components as well as on-board signal processing with user-friendly single-knob control and application presets. Enclosures are made of robust wood with durable EVCoat finish and include premium hardware.
— QuickSmartDSP includes processing, EV’s single-knob user interface, and intuitive menu navigation via LCD. Easy setup via four presets (music, live, club, and speech*), sub/top system-match crossovers, three-band EQ*, five user-programmable presets (store and recall settings), visual monitoring of limiter status, input level control* and meters,
and master volume control to ensure optimal gain structure (* full-range models only).
— EV-exclusive Cardioid Control Technology for subwoofers allows output to be steered towards the audience with up to 35 dB reduction on stage when multiple subs are deployed (powered models only).
— Class-D power amplifiers (up to 1,500 watts) rated to deliver up to 134 dB peak SPL via high-sensitivity transducers designed and engineered by EV (powered models only).
— Intelligent thermal management with a variable-speed fan controlled by multiple onboard sensors, ensuring superior performance and reliability in demanding environmental conditions (powered models only).
— EV-patented Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) waveguide design on full-range models provides precise and consistent coverage.
— Compact 15-mm wood enclosures with internal bracing, durable EVCoat finish, eight M10 threaded mounting points (full-range models), aluminum pole-mounts, and all-metal handles. Subs have large slot ports for low distortion and additional bass extension, and are equipped with a metal grille reinforcement bar.
