"Great Low End Enhancement Without Breaking Your Back"

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was looking to add some low end to my current setup (QSC K12's) and was on the cusp of buying QSC's subwoofer. Price wasn't really an object. My concern was sound and weight. After doing my research, the name I kept encountering was "ElectroVoice." I figured I'd roll the dice and, worse case scenario, I return it to zzounds.com if I didn't like. Needless to say, the ZXA1 has found a permanent home with me.

The sound was exactly what I was looking for. When doing private functions at buildings where multiple events are occurring, I'm often asked by planners and building reps to make sure the bass wouldn't bleed into adjacent rooms. Knowing this, I wanted to add low end that would enhance my sound setup, not rattle dentures from the mouths of the elderly. The ZXA1 gave me said low end, and now the audiophile in me can't remember what life was like prior to buying this sub.

2 XLR IN/OUT, polarity invert and boost.–your typical subwoofer features. The one non-electrical feature that I appreciate the most is the weight. This thing is cake to carry and travel with, yet still packs a punch.

Ease of Use
Great sounds are easy to obtain. As you long as you have basic knowledge of gain structure, you will achieve a great end result.

Built like a brick, light as a feather. Doesn't feel cheap by any means. I don't see it falling apart anytime read more soon. A lot of times you get what you pay for, but this subwoofer truly feels like I've gotten more than what I paid for, ten fold.

As previously mentioned, at this price it's a STEAL. You want find a better sounding sub in this price bracket. Period.

Manufacturer Support
Haven't had to deal with them, but based on my research those who have had to deal with them have enjoyed nothing but positive outcomes.

The Wow Factor
Honestly, the warm bass emitted from this baby really brings the live mix as a whole together nicely. I was taken back but just how amazing it sounds and have no regrets about abandoning the QSC sub purchase.
