Electro-Voice's popular, compact PA speaker is now amped.

The Electro-Voice ZXA1-90 is a compact, amplified loudspeaker system, which is designed for portable sound reinforcement applications that require maximum portability.

The EV ZXA1-90 audio speaker uses the EV8L, a high output, low distortion, 203mm (8") woofer. The woofer is paired with the DH2005, a titanium diaphragm 1" exit true compression driver. The compression driver is coupled to a rotatable 90° x 50° waveguide for smooth response to 20kHz and excellent pattern control.

The ZXA1-90 loudspeaker is powered by an integrated 800W, 2-channel amplifier module. The amplifier has XLR microphone and line level inputs, as well as an XLR line level output for daisy chaining several amplified speakers or a subwoofer. The biamplified design features steep crossover slopes and woofer excursion protection for maximum output and reliability. A switchable high pass filter allows for use with a subwoofer.

The Electro-Voice ZXA1-90 injection molded enclosure is made from high impact polystyrene for durability and light weight. The handle pocket and pole mount make the ZXA1-90 ideal for many portable applications. The ZXA1-90 speaker enclosure also features a built-in monitor angle for floor monitor applications. The bottom of the Electro-Voice ZXA1-90 features four #8-32 suspension points for permanent installation.

  • Don't judge its size

    As reviewed by Christian Calingo on 4/1/2013

    I bought a pair of these speakers to replace my 1st gen JBL EON 15 because the JBLs are getting to heavy for me after doing mobile gigs for many years. I tested this out at a local GC and I was very impressed how it sounded with its size and I compared this with other powered monitor. I paired this with the ZXA1 powered sub to add a little bit of low end and it sounds like the sub is 18". The sound is really clean especially paired with the powered sub. I highly recommend this if you are looking for smaller set with a big sound

  • Very Happy With This Product

    As reviewed by Shaun Sanders on 7/4/2011

    I have played flamenco and Brazilian styles in small venues for a number of years, and I am very picky about my sound. I've tired all sorts of configurations, but I wanted a basic, easy-to-set-up system that was lightweight and unobtrusive. After much worrying over the relatively high price tag, I finally got a Father's Day deal at GC and had the ZXA1-90 I hooked the unit up with a Behringer 1002fx. It was immediately obvious that the guitar sound coming from the ZX was excellent--I was very pleased. Despite the 8in woofer, the bass is very evident, but what is outstanding is the articulation in the mid-range; it's natural and clear, with every nuance shining through. I have yet to get the top end of the guitar dialed in (up around the 10-12 frets on the treble E), but I am still sorting out my eq options, so I hope, with the right set-up, the top end will be as warm and present as the mid-range. At my first few gigs with the ZX, I seemed to get more positive feedback than usual from clientele and venue staff--and restaurant kitchen staff are hard to impress! Plus, I am playing with more confidence because I know that I sound better to the audience. This weekend GC had another deal going, so I purchased a second ZX. I will put both units on a single stand (with a dual speaker mount). That way I will get 180 degree of spread, as opposed to the typical, directional output of a single PA speaker. This means that, because I sit next to the speaker stand at my gigs, I will have one ZX pointing more in my direction, thus acting as a monitor, and will have a very good idea of what the audience is hearing. Thank you EV. I am thrilled my new gear.
