OVERVIEW

Lightweight, compact, professional low end cabinet.

Extending the ZXA1's size-defying performance and sleek styling into the low-end realm, the ZXA1-Sub packs 700-W of self-powered punch into a low-profile wood enclosure. Match ZXA1 with ZXA1-Sub and hear just how big a small rig can sound, whether you want to add a tight thump to a DJ set or give the highs and mids some breathing room in a live performance.

Take the stereo XLR outputs from your mixer and plug into the stereo XLR inputs of the ZXA1, then patch the stereo outputs into a pair of powered main speakers. The ZXA1 is equipped with a 100Hz high pass filter that keeps everything below 100Hz in the ZXA1 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.

FEATURES
  • Integrated 700-W Class-D amplifier
  • EVS-12S 12-inch woofer
  • 126 dB maximum SPL
  • Dual XLR stereo inputs and outputs
  • Pole mount for full-range systems
  • 9-ply/15-mm wood enclosure, internally braced,
  • with textured paint
  • 46 pounds, with integral handle for easy carrying

Get one today and hear your system like you've never heard it before.

    Comments about Electro-Voice ZXA1-Sub 12" Powered Subwoofer:

    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...

                  Since I now live in a rural area with few actively playing bands, my chances of performing as a front man are slim. Decided to strike out on my own and needed a system that I could handle by myself. This is a nice sounding sub that won't break my back or give me another hernia (no fun).

                    I use it for a drum sub, it does the job but I wish it had a bit more. I sacrificed power for less weight.
