If you're looking for a portable powered speaker that will perform in a wide variety of sound reinforcement situations, the Electro-Voice ZXA1-90B is a fantastic-sounding and super-durable option. The ZXA1 is a more recent addition to Electro-Voice's acclaimed ZX series, and is distinguished with the addition of an onboard 800W, 2-channel amplifier module. With the amp built right in, you can cover almost any live sound situation imaginable.

Top-of-the-Line Componentry

The 2-way speaker system in the ZXA1-90B features a high-output, low-distortion, 203mm EV8L 8-inch subwoofer. The DH2005 tweeter is a titanium diaphragm 1-inch exit true compression driver. This tweeter unit is coupled to a rotatable 90 x 50 waveguide, allowing you to dial up great response and well-balanced throw at any volume level.

Built-in Amp Is Ready to Drive Any Sound You've Got

The ZXA1-90 is distinguished by its cleverly integrated 800W, 2-channel amplifier module. The amp comes with balanced XLR microphone-level and line-level inputs, as well as an XLR line-level out so that you can daisy-chain it with other amplified speakers. And when you want to connect to a separate subwoofer, a high-pass filter switch is right there to help you get the low-end balance correct.

Sound From Any Angle

The ZXA1-90 includes a pole-mounting cup for easy setup. It also features a built-in monitor angle for floor monitor applications. The Electro-Voice ZXA1-90 also has four 8-32 suspension points if you are looking to mount it in a more permanent installation.

True Durability Means True Portability

Built to endure the wear and tear of gigging, the outer shell of the Electro-Voice ZXA1-90 is made of injection molded high-impact polystyrene for a killer combination of durability and light weight portability. The front grille is made of polyester powder-coated 18GA galvanized steel to provide uncompromising protection to the system within. A comfortable carrying pocket handle is built right in.

Supreme Versatility

The ZXA1-90 was designed for front-of-house sound at clubs, concert halls, and houses of worship. Yet it works equally well onstage as a personal monitor, with enough power to satisfy everyone from the drummer to the sound engineer. Add a pair to your rig!

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (27 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "small but BIG part 2"
Sound: Sounds good as monitor, if using on full range on stands it can sound a little thin if trying to throw the sound too far. With the matching subs they sound really good. Feature: 2 channel mixer, mic and combo inputs, plus sound per weight factor, quicker set up times for smaller gigs Ease of Use: Ease of use is easy to use Quality: Made in Mexico, nice full grille, plastic cabinet, clean lines, looks high quality Value: Reliability is key in measuring its value, my first ev ever purchased was the zlx115p, from zzounds and it's been holding up well. Is it worth it's typical selling price compared to others, I'd say yes. Manufacturer Support: Yes, minor problem the menu knob fell off of zlx 115p, used email, stated problem, they sent part in mail no charge. The Wow Factor: Giving me more options to choose from, use light or heavy system and still having a great sounding rig Overall: Worth having if you have the subs, for monitors their perfect, small footprint, gets pretty loud too.

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.
