Precision-engineered components, high power-handling capacity, and powerful, well-balanced sound: the passive ZX1-Sub is the latest member of Electro-Voice’s compact and lightweight ZX loudspeaker family. Presenting an optimal combination of performance, portability and efficiency, the ZX1-Sub is well suited to both mobile applications and fixed installation.

A range of features make the ZX1-Sub a standout choice in its class. Its EV-engineered 12” EVS-12S woofer operates in the 42 Hz to 200 Hz (-10 dB) frequency range and boasts a frequency response of 53 Hz – 125 Hz (-3 dB). The nominal impedance of the subwoofer is 8 ohms and its maximum sound pressure level is 127 dB. A robust, 15-mm-thick internally braced wooden enclosure with two side handles, a structured coating and a sturdy steel grille ensure both reliable performance and rugged durability in day-to-day use. The ZX1-Sub’s two recessed NL4-type connectors are wired in parallel, permitting 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. With its compact dimensions (40 x 44 x 46 cm), the latest member of the ZX series weighs-in a just under 20 kilos.

Product Marketing Manager ProSound EMEA, Markus Schmittinger, is delighted with the new arrival: “It has never been easier to give a solid foundation to a compact PA,” he says. “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.”
