EV-engineered components, Signal Synchronized Transducers(TM) (SST) waveguide design, and Class D amplifiers (up to 1500 W) coupled with QuickSmartDSP all work together to provide precise coverage and superior sound quality at high SPLs.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (26 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Incredible Sub!!! Buy It!!!"
Overall: I used this sub for the first time yesterday at an outdoor gig on a huge deck that holds a very large crowd. When I turned on the first sub, nothing more was necessary. Alone, this sub is incredibly powerful and loud!!! But with the second turned on, it got ridiculous out there! I could feet the bass vibrating the deck underneath my feet! Tight, defined bass with no muddy and sludgy sounds. This is a very responsive sub, made to be played loud, but I could barely get the sound meter to register the signal because it was already sufficiently loud! I can't wait to find out what happens when I turn them up! Did I mention that they are light weight and easy to transport? DSP makes tailoring your sound a snap. That rumble in your chest? Yeah, that would be the EKX-18SP!!! Now, stop reading this and buy it!!! And oh, get it from zZounds.com. (No, I don't work for them, own a part of the company or know anyone who does). Seriously, buy this sub!!!
Style of Music: R&B/Soul (mainly). Some Rock, Reggae, Blues & Country

"Awesome"
Overall: Was looking at the ETX 18sp, but was put off by the weight. The EKX 18sp is very manageable. I've pushed them pretty hard at a block party and they hit super hard and tight. No buyers remorse here when compared to the ETX. I can deal with a little bit less power in exchange for $500 less per, 40lbs lighter and the addition of fans. Would recommend these to any Pro DJ.
Style of Music: Rock, hip-hop,country, blues, EDM.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
