When most people consider the importance of low-end frequencies, they tend to think of dance music or maybe hip-hop, but a quality subwoofer can add depth and warmth to any music to maximize the aural experience for your audience. The active subwoofers in Electro-Voice's powered lines bring their own wattage to the table, eliminating possible power inadequacy problems with your receiver or amplifier. The contained speaker and amplifier in a powered rig are also perfectly matched to achieve maximum punch at any size.
Whether you're a DJ, a solo act or a member of a gigging band, portability is probably a consideration for your gear. The Electro-Voice ZXA1-Sub 12" Powered Subwoofer has a low-profile wood enclosure and handles for easy transport, yet the 700-watts of power make it sound like a much bigger rig. This subwoofer even boasts a high pass filter that ensures everything stays below 100 Hz, keeping it away from your main speaker amp so your mid-range and tweeter speakers can operate with greater efficiency.
If, however, you're looking for a complete package to add impact to your setup, the Electro-Voice ELX118P Active 18" Subwoofer and Cover Kit is a solid option. This compact, rugged sub delivers 700-watts of power and a 42 Hz - 100 Hz frequency response so you can rock any house show or stage. As a bonus, this sub even comes with a custom-fit cover with handle holes for easy carrying and a logo for quick identification on the road.
For a situation requiring the ultimate oomph, though, you might want to consider adding an Electro-Voice ETX-18SP 18" Powered Subwoofer to the mix. This sub handles frequencies from 28 Hz - 180 Hz, so it'll add warmth and depth to everything from vocals and acoustic guitars to a dubstep DJ performance. And with 1800-watts of power, this sub delivers impressive low-end in even large venues.
No matter the size and wattage, Electro-Voice powered subwoofers are designed to create bigger, bolder sound than you'd expect. They deliver frequencies you can't just hear but can also feel, taking your performances from flat to full and delivering an extra aural kick your audience will remember.
