collapse expand iconDescription

The Electro-Voice ZLX-8P G2 8" two-way powered loudspeaker is an absolute dynamo worthy of the legendary EV name. This compact yet powerful speaker features a completely redesigned cabinet with a 55° monitor angle optimized for stage use. Powered by Dynacord, it has a built-in 4-channel digital mixer with integrated studio-quality effects, from EQ and compression to ducking and feedback elimination. Using the free QuickSmart app for mobile, you get full wireless control and monitoring of all audio, effects and mixer functions right from your phone or tablet. With a host of user-friendly features in a durable, ultraportable package, the Electro-Voice ZLX-8P G2 un-complicates live sound for solo musicians, DJs, houses of worship, corporate events and everyday public address.

Electro-Voice ZLX-8P G2 Clear Output

Impressive Output and Clarity

This mighty 8" powered PA utilizes signature Electro-Voice sound engineering to deliver impressive output and fidelity. Patented Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) enhance coverage and clarity, simultaneously bolstering low-end reproduction for bass that's punchy and larger than life from such a compact rig. The 8" woofer provides substantial low-frequency response down to 58Hz at -3dB, while the 1.4" titanium compression driver lets recorded music, backing tracks, vocals, guitars and more slice through dense rooms with artfully represented highs up to 20kHz. Despite its small size, the ZLX-8P G2 generates a maximum SPL of 126dB, filling small- to medium-size venues with clear, powerful sound.

Electro-Voice ZLX-8P G2 QuickSmart DSP

Shape Your Sound With Advanced DSP

The ZLX-8P's built-in 4-channel digital mixer lets you dial in the perfect mix right from the speaker, with connections including a pair of XLR/TRS combo jacks, a dedicated Hi-Z input on channel two and stereo Bluetooth. QuickSmart DSP, powered by Electro-Voice sibling brand Dynacord, provides a one-knob compressor, as well as effects like reverb, chorus and delay. An auto-ducking feature reduces music volume when a vocal signal is present, and a 7-band graphic EQ is one convenient way of fine-tuning audio for live performance. With additional global and individual input presets, you can further mold your sound to the room easily.

Electro-Voice ZLX-8P G2 Wireless QuickSmart Mobile App

Wireless Control Using QuickSmart Mobile

The free QuickSmart Mobile app unlocks wireless control of your Electro-Voice ZLX-8P G2, letting you adjust volume, EQ, effects and more right from your phone or tablet. It provides an intuitive way to polish your sonics against the acoustics of any venue, and you can even group up to six ZLX-8P G2 speakers and control them all from one device. QuickSmart Mobile also includes monitoring features like channel solo, so you can hear exactly what you need as you lock down just the right mix. Bluetooth capability additionally lets you link a pair of G2 speakers for a True Wireless Stereo (TWS) setup. 

Electro-Voice ZLX-8P G2 Hassle-Free Setup

Hassle-Free Setup and Feedback Control

With practical features like Automatic Feedback Suppression, the ZLX-8P G2 makes it easy to set up and sound great. The intelligent DSP analyzes and eliminates feedback using up to 12 notch filters, so you can avoid ringing or howling, even at high volumes. The Hi-Z input is another convenience, which lets you plug instruments straight into the mixer channel without a D.I. box for quick onstage setup. Designed to deliver legendary EV sound in a compact, versatile powered speaker, the ZLX-8P G2 is an all-in-one solution for simplified, hassle-free performance.

For solo artists, DJs and A/V techs looking for premium Electro-Voice sound in a powered PA, the ZLX-8P G2 packs a sonic punch in a portable form factor. It provides the tools to shape your sound in any environment, thanks to an easy-to-use onboard mixer, comprehensive DSP and wireless operation via QuickSmart Mobile. Gear up for your next gig at your local Guitar Center, where you can take home an Electro-Voice ZLX-8P G2 powered speaker.
