Electro-Voice SX100Plus E Passive, Unpowered Loudspeaker with SpeakOn

Boost your performance with this Electro-Voice 2-way loudspeaker. It features a cast-frame woofer and wide-mouth horn in a compact, lightweight enclosure. Unpowered. Requires separate power amplifier.

Extremely powerful, efficient and accurate 2-way PA cabinets, the SX100+E, SX300 and SX500+ deliver more output than you ever thought possible from cabinets of their size.

EV's breakthrough Ring-Mode Decoupling produces ultra-clear performance by reducing unwanted resonance within the cabinet, making even slight tonal variations easy to distinguish. To produce their high SPL ratings (like 126dB continuous, 132dB peak on the SX500+), the cabinets feature cast-frame woofers with 14 lb. magnets, and large-mouth horns molded into the enclosures that carefully direct all that power into the room, and not at the wall. Specs include 60-20,000Hz frequency response.

The SX500+ was recently upgraded to include a DH2t HF driver with a 2" voice coil. This results in a smoother response in the crossover region, better high-end response, lower distortion between 1kHz and 8kHz. These unique cabinets are made of molded polypropylene structural foam that's incredibly strong for its relatively light weight. The cabinets provide a built-in stand adapter as well as threaded inserts for permanent installations. The SX100+E handles 200 watts of continuous power (800 watts peak). The SX300 handles 300 watts (1,200W peak) and the SX500+ handles 400 (1,600W peak).

Features:

- Compact 12" 2-way system
- 200 watts continuous, 800 watts peak
- 65 x 65 degrees Constant-directivity horn has excellent projection capability and allows the system to be read more used horizontally or vertically with identical coverage
- Durable polypropylene enclosure is light and very strong
- Built-in stand mount and inserts in enclosure accomodate a wide range of accessories to allow safe suspension, arraying and use as a floor monitor
- Ring-Mode Decoupling delivers smooth, accurate vocals, instruments and mids
- Sound quality remains even over a wide dynamic range

Note: Unpowered speaker, requires separate power amplifier.

"EV SX100 Super quality sound"
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Have had these for six years overall they kick ass. But if you have some heavy rock group and play really loud you will want a subwoofer for more bass. But these are not for really LOUD bands, they are for musicians who care about the quality of the sound.
Sound
Excellent sound quality, well balenced for vocals, need more bass? add subwoofer.
Features
2 way 12" woofer, clean compression driver for highs. Nice side handle easy to carry.
Ease of Use
Not to heavy, easy to put up on your pole stands. Not room acoustic sensitive, good almost anywhere.
Quality
Very high quality sound, excellent cab construction. Mine has 1/4" plugs/jacks only.
Value
Kind of pricy but worth it for musicians who are very critical of sound quality. For the truly MOBLIE musician ad Plus value.
Manufacturer Support
Have had no need yet. No experience.
The Wow Factor
Not sexy, but if your all about the sound this is it. The lust is all about how they fit in the back seat of my honda civic, Cool!
