Electro-Voice ETX-15P 2-Way Powered Loudspeaker

Hit the road with EV's 2000-watt active PA speakers! Loaded with 15" woofers and smart DSP for limiting, EQ, delay and crossovers, they're ready for any gig.
With state-of-the-art components and innovative features, the Electro-Voice ETX-15P powered PA speaker by Electro Voice is ideal for almost any touring or installed live sound application! A remarkable 2,000 watts of power is provided by the highly efficient Class-D amp with integrated DSP. The two way design of the loudspeaker includes a 15-inch woofer and 1.25-inch HF titanium compression driver. The ETX-15P is ideal for venues, rental companies, musicians and DJs!

The low-profile, tour-grade wood enclosure houses unique features that set the speaker apart. Intelligent technology and innovative industrial design provide truly spectacular results. EV-engineered high-efficiency transducers and high-powered Class-D amplifiers, Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) waveguide design and smart FIR-Drive DSP all work together to provide peerless EV sound quality at the highest SPLs.

Intelligent technology, innovative design

EV's FIR-Drive utilizes the Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter technology to optimize transducer linearity while advanced limiter algorithms allow for independent peak and thermal transducer protection. The LCD screen provides easy system set-up and monitoring: location/application EQ presets, limiter status, input level controls/meters and master volume control.

Features:

- High-sensitivity 15-inch woofer and 1.25-inch compression driver with linear frequency response and high power handling
- 2,000 watt Class-D amplifier is highly efficient and features blower-controlled read more thermal management to work in high temperatures
- Eight mounting points for permanent installations
- Waveguides custom-designed and optimized specifically for the ETX-15P
- Forward-placed waveguide helps physically time-align the LF and HF transducers
- Placing the port under the waveguide minimizes distortion and standing waves in the speaker
- System DSP presets support easy setup via selections for type of use, crossover frequencies and top/sub combinations
- Limiters are displayed on the rear LCD and on the front-grille LED
- Boundary compensation filters mean it will sounds the same whether it is used as a floor monitor, on a tripod or suspended from a ceiling
- User-adjustable features include delay out to several hundred feet, three-band parametric EQ, polarity and multiple high-pass crossover points
- Handles, pole cups and amplifier chassis are die cast aluminum, not plastic
- 18-mm, 13-ply birch plywood with EVCoat for a great look and durability

"My experience"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
As a sound guy first and foremost, I took a pair of the EV ETX15P's out for there maiden voyage last night. I would have to say I was extremely impressed with there preformance! I spent 30 seconds a speakers making sure that they were properly set using the carefully layed out controls. With this I have only one word, WOW! I had a group of about 200 woman and these speakers cut right through the crowd all the way to the back of the room. These are some of the best speakers I have worked with in the 10 years of doing sound. My only regret is that I didn't buy these speakers sooner! Being EV I know that they will last for years to come!
