Electro-Voice introduces ZX1-Sub

The ZX1-Sub

Ideally suited to both mobile applications and fixed installations, the ZX1-Sub is the latest addition to the Electro-Voice ZX series of loudspeakers.

Passive subwoofer suitable for mobile applications and fixed installations

Electro-Voice has added to its family of ZX loudspeakers with the introduction of the passive 12” ZX1-Sub.

Built for use in both mobile applications and fixed installations, the ZX1-Sub comes with a range of features designed to provide optimum all round performance.

Its EV-engineered 12” EVS-12S woofer operates in the 42 Hz to 200 Hz (-10 dB) frequency range and offers a frequency response of 53 Hz-125 Hz (-3 dB). The nominal impedance of the subwoofer is eight ohms and its maximum sound pressure level is 127 dB.

A 15mm-thick internally braced wooden enclosure with two side handles, a structured coating and a steel grille is aimed at ensuring both reliable performance and durability in day-to-day use. The ZX1-Sub’s two recessed NL4-type connectors are wired in parallel, allowing the input signal to be looped through and making it possible to operate full-range loudspeakers such as the ZX1 together with the ZX1-Sub using a single amplifier channel. Furthermore, with dimensions of 40 x 44 x 46 cm, the latest member of the ZX series weighs-in at just under 20 kilos.

Product Marketing manager of ProSound EMEA, Markus Schmittinger, is clearly impressed with the new arrival: “It has never been easier to give a solid foundation to a compact PA,” he commented. “The ZX1-Sub was conceived primarily for configurations involving EVID, ZX1 and EVU systems, but it will also optimize system performance when paired with loudspeakers from other manufacturers.”
