Overview

EKX-15SP features high-efficiency Class-D power amplifiers (up to 1300 W) with integrated QuickSmartDSP, and delivers up to 133 dB SPL utilizing high-sensitivity transducers designed and engineered by EV (15-inch EVS-15C). The EKX amplifier incorporates intelligent thermal management (with a variable-speed fan controlled by multiple onboard sensors) which ensures superior performance and reliability in demanding environmental conditions. Powered subwoofer models allow easy setup via three (3) presets (Music, Live, Club), sub/top system-match crossovers, five (5) user-programmable presets (Store and Recall settings), visual monitoring of limiter status, input level meters, and master volume control to ensure optimal gain structure.

Adapted from their touring systems, EV' exclusive Cardioid Control Technology allows output to be steered towards the audience with up to 35 dB reduction on stage when multiple subs are deployed. EKX powered models are ideal for portable and installed applications, with lightweight and compact 15-mm wood enclosures with internal bracing, durable EVCoat finish, aluminum pole-mounts, and all-metal handles.

Comments about Electro-Voice EKX-15SP Powered 15" Subwoofer:

I use the sub with 15" ZLX powered tops to add some low end punch. So far very happy with it. I might upgrade to the matching EKX-15p tops at a later date. This sub has a tighter punchy bass then the 18" which is what I wanted and fills out the missing low end that all tops are lacking. I use the speakers in a music room for practicing my drumming and playing occasional music outside for parties at 1/2 volume. I looked at and listened too everything at the local Guitar Center and this sub sounded the best for my application/budget. If you use more then one you will get a lot of volume and bass but if you are a DJ and play heavy bass music like Rap and Dance you would be better off with the EKX-18SP. The only other 2 subs I would recommend is the EKX-18SP or the QSC KW-181. But this sub is half the price of the QSC so it fit my budget and space limitations better. Also worth noting is, the set up is super easy with the built in DSP. If you use EV tops, the DSP has a setting to properly match the sub to the tops and then fine tune with the gain, your done. So far very happy I chose the EV EKX sub. This subwoofer can be easily moved around due to its lower weight and comfortable handles. Enclosure is well built and the finish is very good and durable.

Comments about Electro-Voice EKX-15SP Powered 15" Subwoofer:

So far the sub has been absolutely flawless. I was so happy with it I went back to GC and purchased the EKX-15p tops and all I can say is I'm blown away. Music is so clear and sounds so good it is like listening to the songs for the first time. Even my family members are considering buying sets for their houses. I plan on getting a second EKX-15sp soon. 1 sub is fine for most applications but for more low end punch a second is needed or you could just use 1 18" instead. 2 15's will have more volume and spl so I'm glad I went with the 15" sub.

      The light weight will make you wonder at first, but once you hear them all those worries disappear.
      Nice punch, great definition, transparent sound.
      A pair of these with EKX12P's on top provided more than enough sound, with plenty of headroom, to fill a NYC restaurant/club with 150-200 in attendance. First was a 9 piece band, then a DJ... GREAT SOUND ALL NIGHT LONG

        Comments about Electro-Voice EKX-15SP Powered 15" Subwoofer:

        I Dj lots of weddings with these ev ekx15sp subs. I use two of these ekx15sp subs along with my ev elx112p tops. I can tell you the sound quality is excellent. The size of the ekx15sp sub is very compact at 57 pounds, I can easily fit two in my small Honda Civic. This sub is perfect for birthdays, corporate events and weddings. I wouldn't recommend this sub if you are only playing bass heavy material like rap, dub step or electronic dance music at high volume in a large hall or club. Get the 18 inch version for that type of application. This 15 inch sub version is more for low to mid size halls in a controlled setting playing a mixture of rock, r&b, motown, country, pop, etc.,. Between the ekx15sp and the ekx18sp as far as sound quality. The 18 inch is more boomy and the 15 inch will be more punchy. Overall, I feel the ekx15sp is worth the investment for those who want good volume and bass in a compact setup.

          So far this subwoofer surpasses what I thought I would need! We will see when we are in a large room, but with so much power to spare I am not concerned.

              Just wanted to update on the EKX-15SP. Still not a single issue with them and they still as good today as the day I got them. The tops on the other hand have been replaced twice for no power (told it was the DSP that failed both times). Either they have DSP reliability issues or I am just lucky enough to get the failure units (both failures were in a 3 week period). That was over 4 months ago with no issues since. I would comment that the staff at EV / Bosch are very friendly, helpful and customer service oriented so the exchange happened quick and they cover the shipping both ways for 3 years. Time will tell if these subs hold up but so far I am still very happy with EV and would buy them again although I would probably get the ETX instead as they have close to ZERO failures!
