Surprisingly good

By deborah dunkley

from Wake Forest

Comments about Electro-Voice ELX112 Passive 12" Loudspeaker:

I cannot rate these speakers any lower than 5 stars simply because there is nothing in this price range that comes close. I run a pro PA system and I purchased 2 of these as stage monitors because I wanted the option to use passive speakers in certain locations. All my others are active and sometimes it is not easy to run extra cabling for active speakers or I do not feel confident using an active monitor at the front of the stage - weather, drinks too close to the stage etc. I use a Crown XLS2000 to power them which is a great match and they sound really good. Clear highs, decent lows and reasonable separation. Although I haven't used them as FOH, from the comments I have read and what I have heard from these myself, I would suggest they would make a very affordable efficient PA. The only down side to that would be that the SPL is a little lower than some other 12" drivers so they would be better suited to small bands, duos etc. I have also read that the finish does not hold up well but so far I see no marks on them. However, I bought covers at time of purchase which I feel are essential to keep any piece of equipment looking good and protects your investment.

The best in class!

By Alan Lebov

from Denver, CO

Comments about Electro-Voice ELX112 Passive 12" Loudspeaker:

These are hands down the best speakers you can get for the price, period. Compare them side by side with anything in their price range and that will be instantly apparent. They are extremely clear with a warmth that only a real wood cabinet can bring. All the other brands sounded so harsh and shrill next to these. Also very tight (not boomy) bass and lots of it for a cabinet of this size. Just wonderful. Don't hesitate.

You get what you pay for!

By Chris Gomez

from Baton Rouge

Comments about Electro-Voice ELX112 Passive 12" Loudspeaker:

These speakers are EV's entry level and very affordable. While they are built nice and look good the sound is harsh and lacks warmth. While I have not done the measurements I doubt the SPL is anywhere near what it claims on the spec sheet. These are good speakers for amateur djs or to use as floor monitors, but I would not use them for serious events as FOH speakers. If you are on a serious budget these will work better than other entry level speakers, but not the quality I was hoping for from EV. Then again 'quality' speakers cannot be bought for such a cheap price. You get what you pay for.....

very smooth sounding

By Scott Harris

from Marlborough, MA

Comments about Electro-Voice ELX112 Passive 12" Loudspeaker:

I have had a pair of ELX112's for 6 months and they seem to have very flat response and can used with no EQ in many configurations. Be aware that they have no low end and require a subwoofer to reproduce anything below 100Hz. They are great for vocals and acoustic guitar, but don't bother micing a kick drum or bass unless you have a sub. If you need full range speakers look at 15's. They work very well as stage monitors, but could use some rubber feet. They are a good generic looking speaker with a spray on finish making them mix & match well with other medium priced speakers that don't have rat fur. Compared to other 12" speakers in this price range I would say that they sound more natural & musical than the Yamaha Clubs which themselves are MUCH better than those nasty sounding JRXs that many people seem to buy for the orange logo.
