EV EKX-12P - Good all round performance

Paul_IP, 18.11.2017
We use the EV EKX-12P speakers as part of our rental sound systems which go out with an engineer. These are great all round PA speakers, either on their own or in conjunction with the EKX 18SP subs. We have been using a variety of other active speakers and the EV units come out best. The sound quality is very good across the frequency spectrum and we have not had any problems with background noise or hiss. One feature that is especially useful is the fact that these come in at around 18kg and so one person can mount them on the stands and their size makes them very portable. Their power is sufficient to fill most venues with audiences up to 300 and they can be mounted in pairs on a stand splitter where the working weight is below 40kg. We recommend the use of the wind up stands for ease of assembly. Some high power active speakers lose some depth and clarity of sound when used at low volume but the EVs are also particularly good in working small venues where there needs to be a limit on output volume. Great value and great quality.

Sound Good but amp build is poor

28.01.2017
Bought a pair of these and used them in a theatre environment for sound effects and vocal PA. Sound quality is good and they have a nice tone and good bass considering their size. However read on as it's not all good...

From the beginning both units had very loud fan noise leading to complaints from the audience of the first show I used them for. There was also a noticeable hiss from the speakers when using the inbuilt amp at greater than -15dB making the full power range unusable in a theatrical environment. (as we need silence most of the time)

Then during the second show I used them for one of them failed completely and I had to send them back to EV via Thomann. Thomann were great as ever but having now got them back they still have the fan noise and hiss. (but do both now work!)

I have used EV passive kit for years and had high hopes for this active unit but wish I hadn't bothered as I'm now feeling they are only fit for eBay or to languish in a cupboard. Not sure I can trust them for show again!

They would be fine for a disco but if you ever want silence, such as theatre or a wedding, then these are not for you!
