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.

    Comments about Electro-Voice ZLX-12P 12" 2-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

    Use this in recording and events sound is clear but you do have to watch your plug arrangement not to plug in the same lines near your computer or the speakers pick up sound in my case a radio station tower in the area but separate the plugs and you have very good sound. With a 15 ZLX as a monitor and a sub gives a little more thump satisfied with my set up.

              My plan was to replace my portable fender passport for individual gigs with these and a small mixer
              Then use these as monitors on our full band as I upgrade our larger system to power speakers also
              This should work!
              I have used them on one outdoor solo gig and they really have a loud clean sound
              I was surprised that after 100 ft away the sound really drops off so the don't throw/ carry the sound as far as I would have thought.
              Hopefully the 15" will better.

              Comments about Electro-Voice ZLX-12P 12" 2-Way Powered Loudspeaker:

              I'm using ZLX12p speakers for acoustic performances.

              2 of the 3 ZLX12p speakers that I've purchased have a resonance buzz, meaning, at specific frequencies the cabinet resonates which produces a buzzing type sound. For example, playing a low G, G#, or low A note causes the cabinet to buzz, even at very low volumes. Any note played outside these frequencies is full, crisp, and clean.
              I've reproduced the exact same issue using an iphone guitar app to rule-out the issue being my guitar.
              The first speaker was exchanged. I demonstrated the problem at my local guitar center which handled the exchange promptly. I tested the new one, in store, prior to leaving.

              I purchased a 2nd speaker (also tested in store prior to leaving) a few weeks later because of the great sound quality, size, and price. Last night, while performing live, I noticed the same issue with one of the 2 that I currently own. This inconsistency is bothersome. I'm hoping the warranty will cover the repair or the replacement.

              Again, I really like the speaker for a variety of reasons, but if this problem persists, I'll be forced to change to a different manufacturer. On that note, I've also experienced this same effect with a Yamaha DXR.

                I spent several days looking for a quality powered speaker that wasn't going to break the bank, and I found it.
                Very clear, good bass response and good features.
