      Comments about Electro-Voice ELX115 Passive 15" Loudspeaker:

      I did a lot of research before deciding on these speakers. They met my demands better than anything else that I looked at. Power ratings, weight and the price is unbelievable.They will be used as main speaker cabs for my small P.A. On occasion they will be used as stage monitors. I am currently powering them with a Mackie 1400i in bridged mode 1260 watts at 4 ohms. Each cab is getting roughly 630 watts. These things will get ridiculously loud and sound great doing it. They have a nice bass response that I wasn't expecting. The matching subs have been ordered and are on their way. In the future I will be powering all 4 cabs with 1 Peavey IPR2 5000 Power Amp 1510 watts RMS x2@ 4 ohms. That will push 755 watts to each cab. I will not be running everything wide open so the actual power to each cab will be slightly lower. I have no doubt that these cabs will take what you throw at them as long as you use some common sense. I find myself completely satisfied with these speakers and hope to start putting some miles on them soon.

        The ELX 15 replaced some good yamahas that I had for front of the house PA set up. Big improvement on the HF and Mids. I use these with EV 181 subs and they belong together. Great price for what you get in ELX 15s. The Bass response using them alone is just fantastic. Best move I have made and EV can't be beat for sound and price. Never looking back.

        I am a mobile dj and I also dj for a newer age band, and these speakers along with my behringer subs are enough to power a whole festival. I have them hooked up to a behringer inuke nu3000 and they pound the heck out of my gigs. One of my speakers did come and had a fuzzy sound coming out of it, but I called musicians friend and the got it straightened out right away! Very happy with my purchase

        Comments about Electro-Voice ELX115 Passive 15" Loudspeaker:

        These are very nice sounding cabinets, light weight and EV/Pro quality for mid-price. I love that they are cut to double as a floor monitor or compact mains. I use them for my custom back trax; they are awesome to play along with.

          Great sounding vocals through these speakers. Very crisp and clear, but they do take a bit of eq-ing to get them just right. I use these for our smaller shows along with a pair of subs and they really cut through well. The over all levels across the sound board were cut down by a third from our previous setup. Good SPL with the right power. I power them with a Crown xs900 bridged, but becareful. Don't push them really hard.

          Comments about Electro-Voice ELX115 Passive 15" Loudspeaker:

          I have used these in an Upfront Floor Monitor Role...Filled the front stage....Drove them with an Inuke 3000 ....Can put some Bass in these and then down size the Bass Rig on the stage...Vocals cut through....Use them in Legacy By Right Band and 70x7 Sound with excellent results.......
          Straight forward features...Balanced Handles & Speakons...Could use some Rubber Feet for Floor Monitor position.
          For the price the quality is appropritae....Finish is OK, but not has "hard" as the JBL MRX line...I bought covers...
          Price and Features for a 15" Inch speaker with Floor Monitor applications or pole mount is decent....400 Watts is more than adequate for floors wedges...

          Power House!

          By Myles Gillespie

          from Canada

          Comments about Electro-Voice ELX115 Passive 15" Loudspeaker:

          Overall this is a solid speaker that is going to seriously do the job. Tested it 1st without my subs running and it sounded like there were some little ones going with it. Not muddied at all very bright and clear sound, much nicer than either my peavys or JBL's or Fender's! Mine shipped damaged to me from Musicians Friend, but nothing that affects use, just asthetics.
          No real features to speak of as it is a passive speaker and you can read the specs
          Quality on this Item is increadible! It is a birtch plywood construction with a nice spray coating for durability. looks like it should stand up to some road life.
          Increadible value compaired to the other options in this price range! I am looking at buying 2 more in the near future.

          Awesome Speaker for price!

          Comments about Electro-Voice ELX115 Passive 15" Loudspeaker:

          Great sounding speaker for the price. Running 2 on QSC GX7 for plenty of headroom. Just concerned about the slight hissing.
          Basic 15" speaker
          Worried about the grill getting ruined, doesn't seem too sturdy. Just be careful with them. Slight hissing from the Drivers, don't know if it's the amp or something else but will try with different setup to make sure. It's not noticable at a gig but it'd be nice if it wasn't there.
          Awesome price to match up with ELX118 to get a nice full range sound.

          I run the sound for my families christian singing group for the past 4 years. We just switched from a pair of 12in peavy's to the elx115's. I have the elx115's paired with a peavy sub on a 2 x 600 watt EV amp and we can blow the doors open now. Great highs and lows, extremely well built cabinets, at a good price. Only negative is the weight for traveling, but worth over looking.
