    Designed to complement the EKX loudspeaker line, the new 15-inch powered sub from Electro-Voice is a behemoth, a mammoth of low-end butt-thumpitude. And we mean that in a good way. For an installed situation (club, venue, live event), these would be ideal to carry low-end frequencies to even the most far-away, back-wall club dwellers. With 1,300 watts of Class D power on tap, you’ve got enough wattage to handle pretty much any demanding situation.

    You’d think overheating would be a problem, but EV even has that covered, too. Internal sensors and specially designed fans keep the subs running perfectly in any environment. For our tests, which included a dance hall/live venue, we were happy that the built-like-a-tank enclosures were, well…built like tanks. With the energy of a live show, you need a PA system that can take some abuse, and we’re hard pressed to imagine even the most metal of shows getting rowdy enough to damage these beef-tastic enclosures.

    At the end of the day, watts and ruggedness are great features in a sub, but it really comes down to sound quality. Can these 15-inch speakers handle earthquake-inducing bass? Simple answer? You betcha – in spades. For DJs, event producers, etc. But really we see these shining in clubs and live venues looking for PA upgrades.

    The interface is hella simple (one knob for dummies like me) and the LCD readout is great for low-light club situations. You can even position the output directionally for less-than-optimal crowd disbursements, and you’ve got two XLR outs for easy expansion (awesome for larger stage shows and festivals).
