Maximum power from below

Even though subwoofers with integrated power amplifiers are very popular with bands and for smaller PA jobs, there are still a wide variety of applications for which passive PA speakers such as the Electro-Voice EKX-18S take the lead. This 18" sub makes a convincing case with its low weight, its robust construction, and its rich, powerful sound – in particular when you need a really powerful boost in the bass range. Especially perfect for heavy music or electronic sounds, and at the same time totally easy-to-use equipment that you can use blindfold and that will thrill musicians and spectators alike. You get all of that with the Electro-Voice EV EKX-18S in its purest form, and at a more than fair price.

That extra bit of power

You are looking for a passive subwoofer for your band, as a sound engineer, or as a DJ? Then the EV EKX-18S is a real tip. Because even if you are already using really fat-sounding PA speakers, this passive 18" subwoofer gives you even more power and reserves. This is especially true if you have a high-performance power amplifier for your speakers. In addition, passive PA speakers are ideal if you want to keep your PA setup flexible and don't feel like having a tangle of cables all over the stage - simply connect a speaker cable to the input, to the next speaker via the output, and you’re done. By the way: Another advantage of passive speakers is that they do not have cooling fans as a result of their design. An advantage that should not be underestimated, especially at events where there should not be any noise between speech and music (e.g. in the theatre or during speeches).

More than just oomph

Bands, sound engineers, and DJs putting together their first sound system will be particularly reluctant to spend a fortune, but still want a convincing sound and enough power and presence in the bass range. If you then reach the limits of presence and room-filling sound with a typical entry-level setup such as two 12" or 15" speakers, an Electro Voice EKX-18S (or two) is an ideal upgrade for your equipment pool. For around 600 euros, you get a subwoofer that can handle a whopping 1,600 W peak and deliver up to 134 dB SPL. In addition, it delivers a clear and thunderous sound down to 35 Hz without any muddiness. And best of all: The EKX-18S is so flexible that it matches a wide variety of speakers, power amplifiers, and sounds.

About Electro-Voice

Electro-Voice was founded in 1927 and has been dedicated to building sound reinforcement systems and microphones since the 1930s. The firm, originally based in Indiana, USA, is considered one of the industry pioneers and has developed many new technologies still in use today. For example, their hum-cancelling coil was not only a milestone for microphone construction, but also was at the origin of the humbucker pickups still used in many guitars. In the long history of the company, Electro-Voice has constantly expanded its offer and today sells a wide range of products for sound reinforcement tasks from entry to professional levels.

Bass to the max!

Reaching the limits of your PA system is an ongoing problem? Supplementing the top units by adding the Electro-Voice EKX-18S and a solid power amplifier plus active crossover (if not already present) will allow you to easily fill locations with a capacity of over 500 people with powerful sound, no matter whether it’s playback or live music. Especially those who expect a lot of bass will have loads of fun - and impress their customers or fans. By the way: If maximum deep bass is not so important to you and you prefer to transport a few pounds less, there is also the smaller brother, the Electro-Voice EV EKX-15S - simply a bit more affordable and easier to move. But with the EKX-18S, you can expect massive bass range power with extremely easy assembly and disassembly as well as uncomplicated operation for hours on end.

Sehr feiner Sub von EV
Samba79 25.11.2018
Der Sub ist EV typisch sehr wertig verarbeitet und macht einen robusten eindruck. Damit das so bleibt, habe ich das passende Cover ebenfalls bestellt, was sehr gut passt und Bass und Transportfahrzeug schützt.

Ich nutze den Bass in Kombination mit zwei EV EKX 12. Aktuell noch an einer Dynacord L1800DSP. Da ich alle Lautsprecher auch bei Gesprächsrunden für die Beschallung nutze, kam die aktive variante mit dem zeitweise durchaus hörbaren Lüfter nicht in Frage. Dies habe ich mir bei Thomann vor Ort sehr gut anhören können (vielen Dank dafür).

Nach der ersten Veranstaltung (Party) habe ich mich entschieden, einen zweiten hinzuzukaufen und per M20 Distanzstange diese immer mit den EKX12 zu betreiben. Es entsteht ein schöner knackiger, definierter und durchdringender Bass. Kein verzerren, auch bei höheren Lautstärken - Genauso wie ich es haben wollte. Sicherlich wird der klare Bass auch durch das ausgewählte Preset für den Bass an der Endstufe unterstützt (Dynacord MARC).

Der Bass ist für einen 18"er sehr gut zu händeln und lässt sich auch zur Not mal alleine ein paar Treppen hochtragen. Bei dem Gewicht ist aber eine zweite Person durchaus empfehlenswert. Die Griffe sind meiner Meinung nach unpraktisch angebracht. 90° gedreht hätte mir besser gefallen.
Er lässt sich als Paar gerade noch so mit den anderen Lautsprechern im PKW transportieren - genauso wie ich es haben wollte. Klare Empfehlung für alle, die neben Lautstärke auch auf die Qualität des Klangs achten.
