The new Electro-Voice passive ZX1-Sub

The passive ZX1-Sub is the latest member of the Electro-Voice compact and lightweight ZX loudspeaker family, well suited to both mobile applications and fixed installation.

The new ZX1-Sub incorporates an EV-engineered 12-inch EVS-12S woofer operating in the 42 Hz to 200 Hz (-10 dB) frequency range, with a frequency response of 53 Hz – 125 Hz (-3 dB).

The nominal impedance of the subwoofer is 8 ohms and its maximum sound pressure level is 127 dB.

A robust 15-mm-thick internally braced wooden enclosure with two side handles, a structured coating and a sturdy steel grille ensure both reliable performance and rugged durability in day-to-day use.

The ZX1-Sub’s two recessed NL4-type connectors are wired in parallel, permitting the input signal to be looped through and making it possible to operate full-range loudspeakers such as the ZX1 together with the ZX1-Sub using a single amplifier channel.

With its compact dimensions (40 x 44 x 46 cm), the latest member of the ZX series weighs in at just under 20 kilos.

“It has never been easier to give a solid foundation to a compact PA,” says Markus Schmittinger, product marketing manager ProSound EMEA.. “The ZX1-Sub was conceived primarily for configurations involving EVID, ZX1 and EVU systems, but it will also optimize system performance when paired with loudspeakers from other manufacturers.”
