You get what you pay for. To an Extent..
Pros: Easy To Set Up,Attractive Design,Decent if they are free,Lightweight
Cons: Mushy Bass,Poor Sound Quality,Weak Bass,Not EV sound,Lack Of Power

The ONLY reason I am giving them 3 stars is because of their good looks and light weight. I hate to rag on them but they just do not have the sound that is expected when seeing the EV badge. They have a mushy sound that makes it feel like the subs are just struggling and trying way too hard. I was super disappointed because after hearing the ELX115p, you would assume the subwoofer in the same line would have similar characteristics. Not at all true other than looks. The ELX 118 just can't hang in the sound quality department in comparison to a KW18. Side by side test, the KW 18 BLEW the ELX away. No comparison. Its output is very disappointing as well. It is an improvement over no sub at all but I would definitely not buy this sub if you are expecting anything more than a little bit of bass fill.

EV ELX and ZLX Line of Portable Speakers
Pros: Attractive Design,Good Power Output,Easy To Set Up,Great Sound Quality

The EV (Electro Voice) ZLX and ELX series of portable speakers (ZLX12P, ZLX15P, ELX12P, ELX15P, and the ELX118P and ZXA1 Subwoofers) are among the best sounding and constructed speaker enclosures I've ever used.  I started with the ELX15P atop a pole in the ELX118P subwoofers and was blown away by the clarity of the sound.  I ran them up to very loud sound levels and found the sound to still be clear and warm.  I've used these in 400 - 1,200 seat auditoriums, a 280 seat hotel grand ballroom, a 300+ seat amphitheater, and in city parks during open air concerts.  Just using 2 speaker/sub stacks have performed very well in all instances.  In the open air parks I found  the sound at 200' from the stage to still be loud, warm, and clear.  I have the JBL EON series speakers but find these EV boxes outperform the EONs, and cost less.  Then EV came out with the ZLX 15" and 12" boxes.  These are even less $ and weigh less but still outperform the EON speakers.  Not quite as warm as the ELX but still fantastic when matched with the ELX118 or ZXA1 subs.  Moving forward I'm using the ELX15P/ELX118P-sub stacks for my main FOH sound and the EV ZLX12P boxes for stage monitors.

Good sound, decent power, lightweight
Pros: Attractive Design,Deep lows,Good Power Output
Cons: ThermalsOverheats easily

For the price, the EV elx118p is a great sub. It produces bass that you can really feel. The crossover seems to be at about 100hz, so it's not so much of a "punchy bass" but more of a deep, thumping bass. It still has some good punch in the "flat mode," but then the some really starts to rumble the low-lows (around 30-50hz) when you switch the eq switch to low boost. I've used two of them at multiple events and have gotten nothing but positive reviews about their sound. At one high-school dance a kid came up to me and said "dude, your subs are [*]." The major flaw of this sub is that it doesn't have ample cooling for the amplifier. If you start pushing it at all, it WILL thermal and shut off. I went to [@] and bought a regular home air-circulating fan for each sub, placed it behind each subs and aimed it towards each amp, and they haven't thermalled yet. It seems that that extra airflow across the amp panel really helps them cool down. I had them limiting all night at a dance and they didn't overheat once; the fans really help.The bottom line- Good sound quality and high output for the price. Buy yourself a $15 dollar fan per sub and they'll do fine. Is a JBL PRX618-XLF or QSC KW181 better? Yes, but they are also much more expensive. You can almost buy 2 EV subs for the price of one JBL or QSC. Plus, I feel that the JBL & QSC, and other subs like them, are only a bit louder & cleaner than the EV's, which is why I still endorse the elx118p's.Also, these subs, like every sub, do much better when placed together. You get an extra 6db of output just by placing them right next to each other, ideal for dances. 6db doesn't sound like a lot, but it makes a big difference when you're talking about maxing out at 98db or 104db.

You get what you pay for!
Pros: Easy to Mount,Attractive Design
Cons: Poor Sound Quality,Lack Of Power

We just received them in and put them to test last night, initially they sounded good but you could just tell that the base was not crisp and punchy put more wobbly. Then one sub started shutting of and then after a while the second one too and we were not even pushing the gains. I also had my PRX 718s next to them and there is simply no comparison in output, sound quality and reliability. These EV subs are a super disappointment and the price I guess justifies it. The JBL are twice as much but also are twice as better. We are returning the EV today.

GREAT DEAL for the price... Clear sound!
Pros: Attractive Design,Easy to Mount,Great Sound Quality,Easy To Set Up,Ease of Use

using this product with the ZLX-12P PA speaker mounted on top...

I plan to get the 15 EV in the future.

The sub has clear quality bass, nothing crazy loud but still very efficient.

Nice sub for the price
Pros: Great Sound Quality,Attractive Design

I'm generally impressed with this sub and this line from EV in general. Good deep bass for mobile DJs. The only drawback is there is no crossover control - you can't adjust the frequencies your sub is playing. Just a volume control knob and a "bass boost" button. Still, it thumps the way I need it to.

for my MTH-1's EV recomends a x-over point of a min 160, will this sub work, in my earlier questions I stated 180 but that was wrong, sorry.
Ray on Apr 29, 2012

This Subwoofer has a Crossover Frequency of 100 Hz. So this Sub would not work with the MTH-1.
