Electro-Voice ZLX12P 12-Inch 1000W Powered Speaker

The ZLX-12P has become the best choice for smaller-venue sound reinforcement or stage monitoring, thanks to its comprehensive design that excels past other small-format, lightweight speakers in both power and performance. Pound for pound, no other similarly sized loudspeaker comes close.


Less means more with the ZLX's compact, streamlined LCD control screen. Rather than clutter the back of the speaker with many dials and switches as done with many other powered speakers, a single knob is used to access ZLX's DSP engine, oferring more tone-shaping precision and configuration than ever before. Optimize your sound to the application (Music, Live, Speech, Club) and/or your location (Pole Mount, Monitor, Install). Hear the difference instantly, and never worry about struggling to get the right sound ever again.

  • LCD display with a single-knob DSP control with presets quickly customizes ZLX to best suit your performance style!
  • Input level meters and independent amplifier control ensure perfect levels in seconds
  • EV-engineered components matched with a custom-built 1000-W Class-D amplifier for best-in-class sound

Excellent reviews all over the Internet--seems to be the best value in a 12" powered speaker!
Barclay B on May 16, 2017
i use mackies for mains. I have been using eons for monitors but I'm needing to add a couple more. a friend of mine works for a production company that recently switched from eons to electro-voice and thought I'd give them a try.

Best Speaker Purchase Ever!
So i recently bought a set of these and a set of the 15". I really put them to the test playing on them every day from December 16th through January 1st at an event I was doing. I was pushing this bad boys anywhere from 8-12 hours a day with nonstop music pumping through them and NEVER once had an issue. Would recommend them to anyone in the business looking for a solid set of speakers. Decent low end for some 12" self powered's and have heard them matched up with the ext subwoofer and they sound like perfection!!

You don't need the 15" model
Absolutely fantastic product. I have an 18 inch powered EV sub, and often times I don't even bring it to gigs. You don't need to worry about low end with these speakers.
My favorite part of the product are the handles. There are 3 handles, one on the top, one on the bottom, and one on the side. It makes it super easy to carry the speaker.
The speaker is light, compact, and sounds pretty darn good.

Ample headroom, great sound
You'll be hard pressed to find a better value for a powered speaker in this price range and overall size. One of these is able to provide good coverage for a 3000 sq/ft space for speech and music and a pair made everything seamless from wall to wall. The highs are a bit harsh, but dialing them back a few dB in the menu evens everything out quite nicely. The handles make them super easy to move around and they are balanced really well no matter where you grip them.

For general use a sub isn't really needed, the low end extension is very nice and they have plenty of punch. If you're going to be doing any kind of DJ/karaoke work, you definitely want one, though. The punchy bass is addictive when you're right up on them, but quickly fades the further you get away. It'll keep your woofers happy, too, our local repair facility sees these needing replacement woofers most commonly because people push them too hard on their own. We paired these with a homebrew powered 18" and even without touching the EV's DSP settings it all sounded great. Tweaking the crossover took out what little muddiness remained and we were left with a self-powered rig whose sound handily beat our passive B-rig with the same power output and much smaller footprint. One of the EV powered subs is on our shortlist to make everything match up both in sound and looks.

You really can't go wrong with these.

I own 4 of them. Happy with purchase.
I bought a pair 2 years ago. Liked them enough and bought another set last fall. Nothing better for the money. Just used them last night for an employee party at a bowling alley. Pushed them for 4 hours just touching the "limit" mark. Easy to watch the read out and sound great. Given the size of the room, they performed really well. Dsp is simple and does what it should. Pretty light weight too.

Planning to buy a couple more
Pros: Easy To Set Up,Great Sound Quality,Small And Light Weight

Quick & easy setup, while at the same time offering great options & flexibility. Great sound from a small, light package. Excellent as mains, monitors, or as a combo rehearsal system for voice & instruments.

Great speaker, great sound!
Pros: Versatile,Attractive Design,Easy To Set Up,Easy to Mount,Good Power Output,Light weight,Great Sound Quality

We just ordered 4 of these to replace 4 older passive JBLs and I could not be happier. These have an incredible sound to them for being such a budget oriented speaker. By far the best bang for the buck, best sounding speaker in its price range. Light weight, the built in DSP is a great feature. Overall its a great speaker, and sounds a lot better then I ever expected it to. I'm impressed, my crew is impressed, and our clients are impressed. The sound this small, light weight, affordable speaker produces is great. Definitely a worthy investment.
