Electro-Voice ZLX-8P G2 Powered 8″ Speaker 1000W

The Sonic Sequel

Electro-Voice introduced the first-generation ZLX series in 2013 to bring real pro-audio performance to a more accessible price point. Users around the world soon took notice. Afterwards, ZLX’s proven performance and day-to-day reliability quickly positioned it as the undisputed industry benchmark. Now, ZLX G2 steps up as the sequel to that success story.

Superior Engineering, Superior Sound

ZLX-8P G2 has levelled up the standout audio that made ZLX the go-to choice. Maximum SPL has increased and premium components behind the grille ensure ZLX-8P G2 G2 offers stunning acoustic performance. Also, the woofer and compression driver in the ZLX-8P G2 model are coupled to a patented SST (Signal Synchronized Transducers) ported waveguide. Therefore, enhancing low-frequency extension and delivering even vertical and horizontal coverage across all frequencies.

Smart Control And Connectivity

ZLX-8P G2 is “Powered by Dynacord” – onboard premium electronics from Electro-Voice’s sibling brand. Ultra-efficient 1000 W Class-D power amplifier modules feature an integrated four-channel, three-input digital mixer with high-quality effects. The mixer includes two XLR/TRS combo jacks and provides 24 V phantom power and Hi-Z compatibility. The mixer also includes pro features such as AFS (automatic feedback suppression), ducking, compression, loudspeaker delay settings and more.

Five system mode settings are available: Music, Live, Speech, Club and FRFR (full range, flat response). New for ZLX G2 and a unique feature in this product class, the FRFR setting offers a flat/neutral frequency response. Thus, producing accurate results when used with modelling processors and guitar cab simulators.

In fact, all ZLX G2 loudspeaker and mixer functions can be remote-controlled and monitored using the Electro-Voice QuickSmart Mobile app, available for iOS and Android. The app allows pairing and grouping of up to six Bluetooth®-equipped Electro-Voice portable loudspeakers, in any combination.

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. The durable polypropylene construction of the loudspeaker enclosure features 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, making it easier for users to hear themselves, while also facilitating access to the amplifier input/control panel on the opposite side. 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).

Lastly, a short-arm pole-mount-style wall bracket for the 8” version allows vertical mounting. Also, slipcovers are available for all model sizes.
