With these Electro-Voice ZLX-15P 15" powered loudspeakers' smart DSP presets and rear LCD screens, it's fast and easy to match your PA system to any room.
The Electro-Voice ZLX-15P powered loudspeakers go above and beyond most of the other powered speakers on the market. First of all, this speaker delivers an astonishing 1,000 watts of power in a unit weighing 38 pounds -- so gigging with ZLX-15Ps is truly manageable. They also come with well-designed onboard DSP that allows you to make precision adjustments to your sound, right on the speakers themselves!

Mighty Bi-Amp Output

Each ZLX-15P is a true 2-way bi-amp design, driving 1,000 watts between the woofer and tweeter cone. The 15-inch low frequency woofer is an EVS-15K, specially-designed to deliver a low end that is tight and clearly defined, even when pushing out maximum volumes. This gives it markedly more defined sound than the Electro Voice ZLX-12P, which uses a smaller 12" LF driver.

The 1.5-inch DH-1K high-frequency transducer in the ZLX-15P is a titanium compression driver. The speakers benefit hugely from the authentic Class-D amp design in the ZLX-12P, which allows the amplifier to use power far more efficiently than an AB system, eliminating much of the heat gain common in other speakers.

Cleverly Integrated DSP Interface

The ZLX-15P comes with an onboard DSP that not only adds great-sounding signal processing, but is also incredibly simple to use. Rather than presenting an additional bank of knobs or switches, the DSP onboard the ZLX-15P is simply activated by holding down the volume knob. Menu items then appear on the LCD control screen and can be navigated by turning the knob. This read more gives you control over Mode and Speaker Location, allowing you to customize the frequency balance and dynamic range of the speaker for situations like Music, Live, Speech, or Club. It also allows you to tweak the speakers for use as a Monitor, or to specify output for a Pole or Bracket mount-type situation. Treble, Bass, and Sub outputs are also accessible via the DSP.

Versatile Ins and Outs For Any Situation

The I/O is straightforward and useful. 2 x XLR/TRS inputs, and 1 x XLR output allows you send to balanced sound to and from the speaker, so you can daisy chain other ZLX-15Ps when desired. A handy 1/8-inch auxiliary input allows you to run an external stereo supply from an iPod or similar sound source.

"All I can say is WOW!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I replaced some pretty cheap speakers with these and I don't have to say they sound better but I will. I heard these at Guitar Center next to the Mackie SRM450 and the QSC KW152s and I have to say the sound from these was better than the Mackie (at least to my ears) and it was no where close to 700 worse than the QSC speakers. The QSC didn't have as much punch on the low end (running subs really makes this unimportant) but was a bit clearer. The horn spread was a little wider all around. Considering the price of two of these was still 200 less than one QSC speaker The little bit of high end spread I'll live without and most crowds won't hear it anyways. All around I have put over 100 hours on these speakers (with 1 ELX118P) over the last few weeks that I've had them. Running them for hours on end right at the limit light threshold and no over heating or cutouts! Great cost effective speakers.

I have used these speakers in a small 20x30 room all the way to a 100x200 room and they fill the room nicely. They have very good low end, even without the subs, but run the sub and you can drive this thing till your ears ring! Highs are clean, Well it's all Clean the only thing that gets tough is over driving them with the low end up too high. It starts to clip and well run really hot. Keep the limit light off and run it for hours and everything will be great!

Well for the 500 each what can I read more say. It's not a wooden case but it also doesn't cost as much or weigh as much! The Grill looks great, they're steel and tough but the little LED on the front should have been like it's big brother the ELX with the illuminated logo. That would have made a great addition!

Ease of Use
Perfect plug and play! Just adjust the volume and let her rip!

Over 100 hours of playing and most being right at the limit with no rattles or over heating, I have seen people with speakers that wouldn't make an hour at the limit! (not meaning QSC or Mackie I'm talking lower end)

In this case I was blown away by the product I got for the money I paid! Great job EV

Manufacturer Support
I have not contacted them and hope to keep it that way!

The Wow Factor
They have a nice clean look that blends nicely in every situation. You can even turn off all the LEDs on the front if you need to. I bought them because I needed speakers and these looked great, Sounded Great and were way below my budget for mains!
