All you need are two of EV ETX-18SP and two of EV ETX-35P to build the great PA

11.07.2016
I bought two of EV ETX-18SP and two of EV ETX-35P to build the great PA.
The subwoofers have a lot of pressure and it's very easy to use them and adjust.
There are four steerable 100mm wheels on the bottom and you can drive it easy to the stage.
Two of the wheels have a locking device, so that you can stop sub where it should stand.

The front led can be configured on / off or limit display.
It is noticeable that the peak limiter flashes relatively early ( about 120 dB already ) - but this is certainly intent.
And it's really mastered the whole range. 135 dB SPL peak is here definitely not advertising promises,
but real and measured. These are real subs IMHO 50 stars for the pair and highly recommended!

Subwoofer in absolute reference class

Mike GT, 13.01.2015
At Thomann, I have the ETX-18SP extensively compared to some other subs with various top parts. Typically perfect Thomann Service :-) - and one of the many reasons, which always make a visit to Thomann always an experience. The equipment is ready for use, or is - when special requests - also just taken out of the warehouse. Simply always exemplary!

Sure, there are lots of good subs, but the EV plays in the absolute top reference class. For me personally - and for my area of ??application (requirements: top-notch at every sound pressure, compact & portabel, lowest / no fan noises in the "quiescent state") - it is even by far the best sub at all. It delivers really abyssed basses with an efficiency, quality, but also musicality, which is hard to beat - if at all. The 1.800 Watt Class D power amplifier controls the 18-inch cabinet with such effortless precision that the result can be difficult to describe - you just have to feel it.

The box has very compact dimensions and a simple elegance. From the pure sound one would assume "blind" quite a cabinet three times as large. Simply incredible.

Unboxing is also a pleasure - especially for a sub. Open the cardboard box with the wheels upright and simply roll out the sub. If the carton is only there, where it is necessary to do the loose alone. The wheels roll over well over rather uneven ground.

The operation via the built-in LCD screen is brilliant & 100% luminescent - the comprehensive manual (which covers all ETX models) is thereby a kind of three-point. Okay - for the cardioid mode, which allows for a real orientation effect from 2 subs, you can then scroll.

If the part is wired, there is a quiet crack when switching on, then there is silence. The temperature-controlled fan jumps probably only when it is really needed. Very good.

In operation, the EV is absolutely inspiring at all levels and all musical directions. The Live / Music adaptation is just as easy to play with the DSP with just one button as the configuration of a frequency correction. Even the "birth date" of the sub - sidiary is "Made in the USA" - is available. In addition, you can see the exact input levels and the status of the protection circuits (limit / temp). Top class

The front LED can be configured on / off or as a limit display. It is noticeable that the peak limiter flashes relatively early (already around the 120 dB) - which is certainly intent. Sounds like the ETX is just warm. And he really does master the whole palette - from jazz at low levels, to classical music, to hard rock. Even at moderate levels, you can feel the tremendous power of the subs - turning it up, the most hardened stomach pit is also happy. This saves then separately the walk to the hairdresser :-). 135 dB SPL peak are certainly not a promising promise, but a real, measured program.

Even I am mostly distributing it with EV top parts - but also with more cheap tops, it adds a tonic spice, which fits almost every top. Only "topless" would then be somewhat monotonous ;-)!

For me the sub of subs. 7 stars ++. Absolutely listen!

The EV cover I can also highly recommend.
