Our take on the Electro-Voice ELX 118P

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.

Plenty of power for strong bass

Bass is all about power and cone area. Electro-Voice designed the ELX 118P subwoofer with a built-in Class D amplifier that delivers 700 room-shaking watts to a high-performance 18" woofer. The speaker also features a switchable boost mode for when you want to really push the low end.

The ins and outs

The input channel is equipped with a combination 1/4" TRS and XLR input, while an XLR line output provides signal for an additional powered subwoofer or powered speaker.

Versatility

The speaker and amplifier are housed in a seriously sturdy 9-ply wooden cabinet, with a built-in pole mount socket for mounting a speaker.  A heavy-duty 18-gauge steel grille protects the bass driver against the inevitable mishaps. If you're looking for a versatile, powerful speaker with a great heritage, the Electro-Voice ELX 118P is ready to go to work for you.
