OVERVIEW

This pro-grade subwoofer punches above its weight class with its 700-watt, Class D amplifier.

Extending the ZXA1’s size-defying performance and sleek styling into the low-end realm, the ZXA1-Sub packs a 700-watt punch into a small, low-profile wood enclosure. Match this powered subwoofer with a pair of ZXA1s or other smaller powered speakers and hear just how big a small rig can sound. Weighing in at a mere 46 lb., the ZXA1-Sub won’t break your back during transport and it easily fits into tight spaces. Whether you’re a DJ looking to add a deep thump to your set or you’re a live performer wanting to give the highs and mids some breathing room, this subwoofer has you covered.

 

Take the stereo XLR outputs from your mixer and plug into the stereo XLR inputs of the ZXA1-Sub, then patch the stereo outputs into a pair of powered main speakers. The ZXA1-Sub is equipped with a 100Hz high-pass filter that keeps everything below 100Hz in the sub so your main speakers' power amp doesn't have to process the low end. Low frequencies are the most taxing aspect of any signal for a power amp, so not only will you get a perfectly tuned low end, your main speakers will operate with much greater efficiency.

  • Integrated 700-W Class-D amplifier
  • EVS-12S 12-inch woofer

        I purchased two of there to replace two Yamaha subs... the Yammies were 76lbs... the EV's are 45lbs! With a bad back- weight is a top priority for me... they are also small enough to fit in my car - with my other equipment. Nice, tight punch & pretty good volume for my needs (usually less than 150 person venue).

          Bought this to add to the sound of K10's. Will use for recorded music and live acoustic duo. I was tempted to buy two, but the one does the trick so far.

                    I bought it for my V-drum kit to use alongside a keyboard amp. It's nice and compact and sounds great. The only thing that would make it perfect would be if EV had added an adjustable crossover.

                      I do hesitate use a word like compromise, for the sound is not compromised. Yet, here we have a subwoofer at half the weight, with a tight fast acting 12" (10 - 12 respond much quicker and more accurate than larger), with its own built in crossover, simple quick connection, great handles and EV quality.

                      Need more power, just go to 2, 4 or more...
