We've had two of the ZLX12Ps for a bit over three months. Just a quick, short review. We've used them as mains for our acoustic gigs; as monitors for the front line; and as a drum monitor. They've worked flawlessly in every situation we've thrown at them. Our singer says they are the best she's heard from all of the different monitor systems we've used in the past 10yrs or so. If I had one thing to change, it would be the placement of the side handle. It's on the bottom when in monitor mode; but that is a minor issue. Other than that, these are very good. Especially in this price range.

Just got the first pair of the 3 seperate pairs ordered and only had 1 out the box for a listen and inspection so far. I did find some quality control issues, the badge had some slight rattle if I tap on the grill so I wemoved the screws and pulled the grill where I found several issues. Made in China at it's best! Of the 8 screws that fasten the LF driver in the frame, 3x were about 3/4in still sticking out and the rest were not very tightly installed, The little IC behind the badge that holds the front LED was loose and one of the 6x screws that hold the front grill on dont get tight because the plastic threads are stripped. This was a sad sigh for me to see and leaves me uncertain if these things will last a long time or fail early. The audio check I performed was only a basic test at home with several tracks sampled via ipod directly connected and with some brief high volume audio and tested on the dirfferent dsp modes. Sounded good with some powerful output and I can't wait to try these in a live performance as stage monitors as that will be the intended use.

Love it, but one thing....

By BOB

from Fairgrove, MI

Great compliment to the ZA1-Sub. I'm so glad I got these instead of the ZA1 top. They sound great. They're crisp. No complaints from an audio standpoint. However. Whose boneheaded idea was it to NOT allow them to stack? I now have to build a shelf or take up more floor space to store them. If they stacked, I could stack two of them directly on my ZA1-Sub's. Bad idea. They're plenty loud and sound great, though. Engineering, boys...engineering.

Great Speaker for live use

By Brian hutton

from Chicago IL

Im a drummer, audiophile and a studio engineer. I got to the point where i got tired of going to different venues and the sound is horrible or just not to my liking so i decided i was going to purchase a personal monitor for self use..........this speaker is awesome, light weight, very modern looking and most importantly the sound is crystal clear. great presence and it sounds very deep, great low end also. I did my first gig with this speaker. when i brought it in everyone noticed how stylish and pro level it looked and also they complemented me on how good it sounded. I used it as a monitor by my drums and it was plenty loud enough with nice tight low end. the dsp makes it very new age also. overall Im very pleased with my purchase. EV has taken it to another level!

Mike B

By Michael Baudoin

from New Orleans, Louisiana

I have DJed for over 25 years and used EVs in the past and they have always produced clean crisp sound. Im not really big on powered speakers, but I was looking for a easier rig to use for smaller venues. So I was in the market the for 12s and I was interested in the QSC K12 but not looking to spend as much. So I did some research and was turned on to the ZLX 12p as a comparison. After putting them side by side the zlx is by far extremely impressive for the price and the features they have. The overall sound quality is the best I heard from a 12" loudspeaker. So I bought a pair and I am proud to say EV has done it again. lookout QSC K12 there's a new sheriff in town.

If you're looking for a great value and great sounding speaker, look no further than the EV ZLX.

Incredible Clarity & Full Sound at Low & High Levels Great Speakers !

By Nick Lamberti

from Boston Mass

Ive been a DJ in the Boston for over 30 yrs plus and wanted speakers with great vocal clarity and a nice fat sound both low and high volume and lightweight. Ev has done it.DSP controls awesome. Thumping club sound in club mode. It is very important to have your laptop or source going in is properly equalized to get the most out of these or any speakers and you will have the best sound.I am very very pleased thank you EV !

Not bad but Not amazing

By william adams

from Portland, Maine

I decided to try these out. I have been a QSC fan for a while now. I looked at some reviews of these and decided to try it out in comparison to my K12s. These just do not cut it for me. I guess I have been spoiled by the K12s. I was barely pushing them and they got very hot, especially with no fan. If you are looking for a good inexpensive speaker this is not bad, but if you are more of an audiophile look else where.

We've had two of the ZLX12Ps for a bit over three months. Just a quick, short review. We've used them as mains for our acoustic gigs; as monitors for the front line; and as a drum monitor.

Great Boxes

By Kenny Empson

from Peculiar, MO

I have two of the 12" ZLX speakers. We use them in the full band as monitors. Then as mains when we do acoustic gigs. Features: They definitely have more features that we'll use. The quick change from Monitor to Pole mounted is great. Takes less than a minute to configure for either application. We've left every other setting on the default. Quality/Reliability: So far they've been very reliable. No issues. The quality is definitely better than the JBLs we had. What do you need to hear clearly thru a monitor? Vocals? Yep. And our vocalist mentioned on day 1 that these were easier to hear, had a better "throw" and made her job just that much easier. Digging mine, too. Look/Feel: They look pretty darned cool; well, to me they do. Lightweight, compact design; 3 handles! One person can mount these on a pole. If I had one complaint (so far) it's that the side handle is on the floor in monitor mode. Seems it should be on the top side for ease of movement when in that mode. But, at 38lbs (?) they're still easy to move. We made our own covers for them. Cheaper, better than the ones offered by EV. Guess that's my second complaint. Why don't they come with covers? Overall, we are very happy with these speakers. Highly recommended.

Clean clear and crisp

By kevin fuentes

from Brockton ma

I was always used to havin yamahas and never really changed into any type of brand til I tried this for a monitor speaker for live. When I first tried this this is by far one of the best speakers I've ever heard. I will 100% guaranteed and recommend to get this speaker. I honestly think its too cheap... I would charge 599 for this speaker
