The EKX-15P from Electro-Voice is a high-power, two-way loudspeaker that is a perfect solution for variety of portable and permanent applications.
Who says big things don’t come in small packages? Don’t be deceived by its compact footprint because under the hood lies 2,000 watts of blistering power with a 15″ SMX woofer, high-efficiency 1.25″ titanium compression driver and Intelligent DSP. The end result? Frequency response from 48 Hz-20 kHz @ 134 SPL! But your audience won’t care a wit about that; just be prepared to graciously accept the compliments on how great you sound…and be sure to tell them where you’re playing next.
Legendary EV sound and performance
Inside each low-profile, tour-grade wood enclosure are a range of unique new features that set Electro-Voice EKX-15P 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.
2000 W amplifier and 134 dB peak SPL
High-efficiency DH3-B 1.25″ titanium compression driver with convex diaphragm extends frequency response to 20 kHz
15″ SMX woofer technology using composite cone materials, flux stabilizing rings, and thermal management yields lower distortion, smooth response and high SPL
Single-knob DSP includes presets for multiple configurations and top+sub combinations (performance style, locations, and space)
Loudspeaker system performance monitoring via integrated LCD and front panel LED
SST design assures precise and consistent coverage
Designed for floor, stacked, or tilt pole mount (0 or 7.5 degrees) for portable or permanent installation
Eight (8) M10 threaded suspension points
EV Titanium Compression Driver & SMX Woofer Technology
The high-efficiency DH3-B 1.25″ titanium compression driver has a convex diaphragm driving a coherent phase device extending frequency response to 20 kHz. EV’s FIR-Drive technology utilized the latest FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filter technology to optimize transducer linearity and advanced limiter algorithms for independent peak and thermal transducer protection.
EV designed and manufactured transducers include the 15″ SMX woofer technology using composite cone materials, flux stabilizing rings, and thermal management. This transducer yields lower distortion, smooth response and high SPL. EV-patented SST (Signal Synchronized Transducers) waveguide design provides uniform coverage and directivity. Waveguides are optimized using advanced simulation software and propriety algorithms for precise control and lowest distortion.
EV Engineered Intelligent DSP
The DSP (Digital Signal Processing) menus offer extensive configurations, crossovers, selective voicing, protection limiters, EQ modes, and a lockout mode prevents casual changes to the system. Loudspeaker system performance is optimized via an LCD screen. The front LED indicates power or can be configured to indicate limit.
The enclosure is constructed out of 18-mm, 13-ply birch plywood finished with EVCoat, so you know your EV EKX PA cabinet will reliably perform time after time…and gig after gig!
