Ev Elx Bass
The Electro-Voice ELX118P Live X powered subwoofer presents an impressive live low-end solution. It was specially engineered to operate in flawless combination with the Electro-Voice ELX112P and ELX115P powered speakers, ensuring a live sound that is precisely calibrated across the entire frequency spectrum. Weighing in at just under 70 pounds, this 18″ subwoofer utilizes a manageable and easily portable design.
The ELX118P-powered subwoofer delivers 700 watts of power from a cabinet measuring 26 x 20 x 23 inches. It achieves this size-to-power ratio by utilizing an excellent Electro-Voice Class D amplifier, which reduces the weight of the circuitry and operates at a cooler temperature, eliminating the need for additional fans.
The ELX118P’s durable 9-ply 15 mm wood cabinet is internally braced, faithfully reproducing your low-end frequencies without sounding “boxy,” even at high volumes. The remarkable Class D amplifier inside the Electro-Voice ELX118P drives the mighty EVS-18K 18-inch woofer, providing the most precise bass reproduction in the ELX line and enhancing the creation of a precise live sound. Moreover, its impressive maximum SPL rating of 126 dB makes it one of the most efficient amplifiers for its size and weight.
The controls on the ELX118P are uncomplicated. It features a single XLR/TRS balanced stereo input, along with an XLR balanced stereo output. The back panel includes a Volume Level knob, allowing you to adjust the volume easily. Additionally, it offers the option to operate in Normal or Bass Boost modes and includes a convenient Polarity Switch knob.
Overall, the ELX118P was voiced and designed as the perfect complement to the Electro-Voice ELX112P and ELX115P powered speakers. However, it can also integrate seamlessly with existing speaker setups, proving useful in any scenario where a powerful 700-watt subwoofer is required to handle the low end. It includes integrated handles for enhanced portability and a built-in pole-mounting cup for sub-satellite applications.
