Product Description

When powerful low frequency reproduction is required, the TX2181 delivers. Ideal as the companion sub to the TX2152 in a two subs to one top ratio, with the EV DC-One handling crossover and processing duties, the TX2181 makes excellent use of its dual EVS18S woofers to provide all the low end necessary for a truly high-end professional rig. In addition, the TX2181 works as an outstanding addition to a variety of other EV loudspeaker products. With incredibly high sensitivity and excellent power handling the TX2181 doesn't require an enormous, expensive amplifier to generate high SPL. The aesthetically unique Backbone grille not only looks great, but also provides greater strength and damage resistance than simple grille block designs. Proprietary ergonomically correct handles and angled input panels make the TX2181 easy to transport and employ in a variety of applications.

A host of innovative features and patent pending designs make Tour X the most exciting loudspeaker series available today:
- Breakthrough SMX woofers achieve incredibly low levels of woofer distortion without sacrificing sensitivity
- Aesthetically unique, patent pending Backbone grille design for superior strength and damage resistance

Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (13 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Why the bad press??"
Overall: I purchased a single box for an install in a bar. As a sound guy people put a lot of faith in me to get it right the first time, and this box delivered. The bad reviews are likely from users that are under powering the subs or not using the proper processing settings. Power this with an amp that can deliver 3000+ watts, and use BOTH a high pass and low pass crossover and you'll be more than happy with the results! Plenty of low end grunt and plenty of snap when you need it. Don't power these with 1000 watts and expect it to perform.

"DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY"
Sound: They sound very boomy, even if setup and eq'd correctly Feature: Dual Speakons are a plus, finish and grill is nice. Fake wood is a turnoff. No casters and having to pay extra for them is a turn off. Ease of Use: As with any speaker cab, they are easy to use. Quality: the craftmanship looks fine. But fiberboard will crumble. Plywood would have been better. The speakers are terrible. 2 1/2 inch voice coils and they can't even handle the power they are rated at. Value: I contacted Electrovoice with my issues and they totally did nothing. I spoke with several people who all turned their backs and even stopped taking my phone calls and emails. So basically I had a brand new product with no warranty. The Wow Factor: N/A Overall: I was sold a set of subs that were suppose to be Tour Grade (why name them Tour X if they are not). Once I found out they were not what I paid for, I returned them after a huge fight. I immediately replaced them with a pro audio set of subs, from an honest company. I have owned EV products for years. I will no longer purchase anything from EV, because they cannot be trusted. You never turn your back on your customer.

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.
