Electro-Voice ZLX-12 G2 Passive 12″ 2-Way Loudspeaker – 1000W

When Electro-Voice introduced the first-generation ZLX series in 2013, the goal was to bring real pro-audio performance to a more accessible price point. Users around the world soon took notice, and ZLX’s proven performance and day-to-day reliability quickly positioned it as the undisputed industry benchmark.

Now, adding to the momentum of well over one million ZLX units delivered globally, ZLX G2 steps up as the sequel to that success story. The point of entry into the Electro-Voice portable loudspeaker portfolio, ZLX G2 builds on its predecessor’s winning formula with increased maximum SPL, frequency range and durability, along with a range of ergonomic refinements.

Superior Engineering, Superior Sound

The standout audio quality that made ZLX a go-to choice for both live performance/playback and installed sound has been levelled up with ZLX-12 G2. Maximum SPL has increased and premium components behind the grille ensure ZLX G2 offers stunning acoustic performance for everyday use.

The woofer and compression driver in each ZLX G2 model are coupled to a patented SST (Signal Synchronized Transducers) ported waveguide, enhancing low-frequency extension and delivering even vertical and horizontal coverage across all frequencies – all while allowing a more compact form factor. ZLX G2 packs a sonic punch that’s worthy of the Electro-Voice name.

Passive ZLX G2 models use industry-standard NL4 connections – the two NL4 connectors are in parallel and pass through all pins. For optimal acoustics and performance, ZLX G2 is recommended for use with a Dynacord DSP power amplifier programmed with the appropriate speaker settings included in the EV Speaker Database for SONICUE Sound System Software.

Form And Function Redefined

Enclosure design, ergonomics and versatility were all a priority in ZLX G2’s development, resulting in a sleek-yet-solid blend of form and function that evolves elements of the first-generation model while incorporating key improvements to enhance the user experience. Available in black, the loudspeaker enclosure is constructed from durable polypropylene, featuring a new strengthening “spine” complete with an embossed Electro-Voice logo.

Symmetrical 55º sides allow for a steeper projection angle when the loudspeaker is placed in monitor position. This makes it easier for users to hear themselves, while also facilitating access to the amplifier input/control panel on the opposite side. A built-in “kick-back” angle allows the 12” and 15” versions to project upwards at a 23º angle in a vertical orientation. The stance of the enclosure has been redesigned to aim straight forward when placed directly atop a subwoofer (i.e., without the use of a pole).

A choice of mounting accessories is available to permanently install ZLX G2 models: a “U” style wall bracket allows 12” and 15” models to be either vertically or horizontally mounted; a long-arm pole-mount style wall bracket for the 12” and 15” versions allows vertical mounting with tilt adjustment; a short-arm pole-mount-style wall bracket for the 8” version allows vertical mounting. Slipcovers are available for all model sizes.

Perfect For A Wide Range Of Installations And Applications

In addition to portable sound for live performances and events, compact size with big performance and a range of user-friendly mounting options make ZLX G2 a great fit for installation in bars, restaurants, clubs, houses of worship, and many more applications
