    Got two of theses man what power and clearity. Now not sure how long they will last in a gig,but they sound fantasic and with EV customer service i'm sure with any issues they will be able to help me out. Still theses are light weight tons of power and love the tec installed in these babies. I'm a mobile dj and these are going to be my mains from now on. Oh btw theses have great bass responds so won't need a sub,but of course big events a sub would only help. Anyway love theses not sure if they are better then the ev live x line possible due to wood vs plastic,but still theses are great speakers for the price.

    I've only used these a couple of times on the gig so far, but they perform well, have a pretty wide audio range, can be placed in close proximity to the players and reduce the need to bring an extensive monitoring system to every venue. Great stuff! Tommy V

      You will not go wrong with these speakers, the sound is crystal clear even at high volume and the best is the price you can get them for. I am a solo singer and is great to have access to professional sound at this price. My son and I also tried them with electric guitar and just 2 of this ZLX12P did the job for about 1000 people at a HS cafeteria, some even complaint about the loudness.

          After trying just about every amp and monitor out there I decided on the EV 112. Best bang for the buck. It has a very clean sound and can handle keyboards really good. Its compact and has plenty of low end. I have come to the conclusion that no one makes a great keyboard amp anymore. There is a bit of noise when you go full up on the volume..but its gone at about 3/4 volume.

            UPS left delivery in front yard with no one home. The box has EV on all sides of the box. Was surprised it was there when I got home. Great piece of gear, I recommend it, not UPS.

            Excellent sound, but only two channels, because of aux and line in same channel won't be able to
            balance if you use three inputs.

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

            I was looking to upgrade my powered PA speakers, going smaller & more powerful. Kept going back and forth between Yamaha DXR12's (fantastic speaker) and these ZLX's. ( I use the DXR10 for my keys monitor and love it).
            When I compared them in the store I actually preferred slightly the Yamaha's, but the extra cost made me hesitate.

            I'm the type always looking for a discount, so I lean heavily towards blems, demo's, etc. So when I saw these with the extra 15% clearance discount available I made the move. Boy, am I glad I did.

            These things rock! Ran them first with my powered sub. Strong, clear, plenty of volume for what I'm doing (live trio also using midi backing tracks). Then without the sub. EQ'd the bass up, love the low end and punch. Could for sure get by without the sub in a pinch.
            In no way do I regret not going with the Yamaha's. For the MONEY, size, & weight, these are a great deal!!

                Two caveats: I've had these for a short time so I cannot comment on durability, and I'm rating them "for the price". I've played music for 35 years and carried untold quantities of back-breaking PA gear. I have used Meyers powered cabinets and they sound AWESOME. They will also break your back and your bank account. My girlfriend can carry one of these EVs in each hand and two will fit in the back seat of a small car with room to spare. We used them as FOH for an average-sized country club room this weekend with a 5-piece band and they rocked (no subs). I used one the next night as a monitor for keyboard and vocals and I was completely satisfied. I'm sure you can buy better speakers if money is no object, but if you're like me and you actually have to live on a budget I doubt you could do better for the price. I am very happy with these speakers so far.

                  I compared these side by side to QSC K12. JBL PRX712, Peavey PVx12p, and Peavey Impulse 12D and not one of them sounded any better than the EV. This cabinet is "smooooooooth".
                  Don't overpay for your powered speaker. Look no further. This is it!!!!!
