EV engineering and innovation working together for maximum sonic impact.

The EKX series is the newest member of the Electro‑Voice portable loudspeaker family, and combines legendary EV sound quality and reliability with the latest technology — all in a compact package suitable for a wide range of sound reinforcement scenarios, including musicians/DJs and live/club/installed sound applications.

The EKX series features eight models (four powered and four passive), including 12" and 15" two-way models and 15" and 18" subwoofers. EKX is positioned above the ZLX and ELX series and below the ETX series.

  • EKX-15: 1600 W (peak), 132 dB peak SPL utilizing high-sensitivity transducers designed and engineered by EV.
  • EV-patented Signal Synchronized Transducers™ (SST) waveguide design provides precise and consistent coverage.
  • Lightweight, compact 15-mm wood enclosure with internal bracing, and durable EVCoat finish.
  • Eight M10 threaded mounting points, aluminum pole mounts, and all-metal handles.
  • 90˚ x 60˚ pattern for best coverage on mid-size stages. 40˚ monitor angle with rubber feet.
