Decades of innovation

If you're a musician, you know about EV. If you're not, just know that Electro-Voice has been at the forefront of live sound innovation for over 70 years. Now they've distilled those decades of experience into their Live X series of portable PA speakers.

EV ELX 112P 12" Powered Loudspeaker

The 12" woofer and 1-1/2" titanium compression driver are powered by a 1000-watt Class D amp.

Plenty of power

Electro-Voice designed the ELX 112P powered speaker to give you plenty of clean power, with a built-in Class D amplifier that delivers 1000 watts to a 12" woofer and a 1.5" titanium high-frequency driver. A built-in pole mount lets you mount the speaker on a stand or above a subwoofer, and you can use the speaker's switchable high-pass filter to optimize the speaker for use with a sub.

The ins and outs

The two input channels are equipped with combination 1/4" TRS and XLR inputs; one channel also has a set of stereo RCA inputs. An XLR line output provides signal for other ELX 112Ps or for a powered subwoofer.

Heavy-duty enclosure

The speakers and amplifier are housed in a seriously sturdy 9-ply wooden cabinet, and the enclosure's shape allows you to use it as a stage monitor as well as a PA speaker. If you're looking for a versatile, powerful speaker with a great heritage, the Electro-Voice ELX 112P is ready to go to work for you.

Electro-Voice ELX 112P

Glen from Hood River, OR on 9/15/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sonically, these monitor's are stellar! I a/b'd them against the JBL 812, Mackie 450v3, JBL eon 612 and the 812's and EV's were clearly above the rest. They sounded very musical and with the price difference of the JBL 812 vs the EV's, it was a no brainer. Also, Cory at Crutchfield was super helpful and deserves 5 stars as well. He owns a pair and has also used various other monitors and really helped me by answering all my questions. I use these for solo songwriter gigs and love that i can expand these, use 1, use 2, etc. Plus, after owning a linear array system, it is good to be back with a 12" driver that pushes air!!!

Pros: Musical, articulate, sound great at all volumes

Cons: none if you are looking for a pure speaker with no dsp or bluetooth capacity
