The new ETX Powered Loudspeakers family builds upon the industry‑leading innovation and 85‑year heritage of Electro‑Voice audio engineering to offer the most advanced professional portable powered loudspeakers available today.
A versatile high‑end choice for live entertainment venues, rental companies, pro musicians and DJs, and installed sound, the ETX Powered Loudspeakers family features three two‑way models (10‑inch, 12‑inch and 15‑inch, all with a precision HF titanium compression driver), a three‑way model (15‑inch with a 6.5‑inch MF driver and a precision HF titanium compression driver) and two subs (15‑inch and 18‑inch drivers).
Positioned above the ZLX and EKX families respectively, ETX Powered Loudspeakers complete a trio of recent EV portable loudspeaker offerings‑each of which was designed to bring best‑in‑class performance to its price point.
Inside each low‑profile, tour‑grade wood enclosure are a range of unique new features that set ETX Powered Loudspeakers apart, combining intelligent technology and innovative industrial design for spectacular results across all applications. EV‑engineered high‑efficiency transducers and high‑powered Class‑D amplifiers, Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) waveguide design and smart FIR‑Drive DSP all work together to provide peerless EV sound quality and precise coverage at the highest SPLs.
- 18-inch DVX woofer for extended low-frequency response
- 1800 W Class-D power amplifier with integrated FIR-Drive DSP
- 135 dB peak SPL
- Special DSP preset for true cardioid performance across the full operating bandwidth
- Combo pole cup (insert and threaded) for use with the ETX Powered Loudspeaker full range models
- Removable casters
EV's FIR‑Drive utilizes the latest Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter technology to optimize transducer linearity. Advanced limiter algorithms for independent peak and thermal transducer protection.
State‑of‑the‑art components deliver the legendary EV sound quality and reliability the pros trust: 1800 W (subs) and 2000 W (full‑range) Class‑D power amplifiers with integrated DSP produce high SPLs utilizing high‑sensitivity, low‑distortion transducers (including DVX and SMX series woofers and 1.25‑inch HF titanium compression drivers).
Complete full‑function DSP control via a single‑knob interface. LCD screen for easy system set‑up and monitoring: location/application EQ presets, limiter status, input level controls/meters and master volume control to ensure optimal gain structure. Subs feature a preset for true cardioid performance.
Lightweight, durable and compact 18‑mm, 13‑ply birch plywood enclosures finished with EVCoat. Eight mounting points for permanent installations (full‑range models). Custom die‑cast aluminum pole cups, handles and hardware.
EV‑patented Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) waveguide design provides precise and consistent coverage across all system configurations. Waveguides are custom‑designed and optimized per ETX Powered Loudspeaker model.
