Tour-ready full-range speaker

The ZLX 15P is a multifunctional loudspeaker with a 15" woofer, and has been a staple among versatile speakers for years. The ZLX 15P can be used as a front-of-house speaker in clubs as well as a monitor on stage, and also features an integrated DSP. No matter if a band needs monitors or an event centre requires a conference sound system - the EV ZLX 15P adapts its sound to the different requirements. In three points in particular, it stands out from the competition in its price range: Bass frequencies are reproduced comparatively well, the speaker is relatively light, and it also has three handles with which it can be carried easily to the location by one or two people. Apart from the protective cover for the cabinet, a matching flight case on wheels is also available, with which two 15Ps can be packed securely and ready for touring.

Music and voice amplification

The EV ZLX 15P comes with a 15" woofer and a 1.5" compression driver. It is suitable for full-range applications and is simply placed on the floor or on a tripod. The sound is warm and unobtrusive with soft highs. In addition, the speaker can be used as a top unit in combination with a subwoofer. Thanks to its slanted panel for monitoring, it also provides focused sound for bands on stage. The signal from the mixer is fed into the two separately controllable jack/XLR combo inputs. The sound can be passed through to additional speakers from an XLR output. After the 15P is connected to the power supply with an IEC connector, the DSP offers numerous possibilities for sound optimisation. For music or speech, with or without an additional subwoofer, as a monitor or as part of an FOH system - this loudspeaker is multifunctional.

For the audience and bands alike

The ZLX 15P from Electro-Voice can be used as a monitor or full-range speaker. The sound of one speaker alone reaches about 150 people, and easily around 200 guests in stereo mode. Entertainers, mobile DJs, and bands with acoustic instruments get a flexible speaker with proven quality. If used in small locations, the ZLX 15P provides the sound for the complete hall. Speakers can plug a microphone directly into one of the inputs for product presentations. Those who want to use the second input for music in mono will benefit from the separately adjustable volumes. This means you can fine-tune your own desired sound without an external mixer. Moreover, the EV ZLX 15P can also be expanded: If rock bands want a more powerful bass sound, suitable subwoofers are optionally available. And with the integrated DSP, the sound is optimised for the respective place of action in no time.

About Electro-Voice

Electro-Voice was founded in 1927 and has been dedicated to building sound reinforcement systems and microphones since the 1930s. The firm, originally based in Indiana, USA, is considered one of the industry pioneers and has developed many new technologies still in use today. For example, their hum-cancelling coil was not only a milestone for microphone construction, but also was at the origin of the humbucker pickups still used in many guitars. In the long history of the company, Electro-Voice has constantly expanded its offer and today sells a wide range of products for sound reinforcement tasks from entry to professional levels.

An event location and its PA

A new PA system is needed for a multifunctional stage, but not only for providing sound for an audience of 200 people. The room is sometimes also rented by bands to record their music videos, or for streaming panel shows. In addition, the sports area of the building occasionally needs voice and music amplification for courses. With two EV ZLX 15Ps placed on loudspeaker stands to the right and left of the stage edges, the hall is evenly filled with sound. To do this, the outputs of the in-house mixing console are connected to an input on each of the two speakers, which are then connected to the power supply. For video shoots, the speakers are simply placed on the stage floor. In order to also be equipped for rock bands, we recommend purchasing the appropriate ELX200-118P or EKX-18SP subwoofer, for which the DSP offers optimised sound settings.

Stay Away from the ZLX powered speakers

I own a pair of 15P and i`m not happy at all with the quality of this speakers. The first one just quit working shortly after I bought them, the lower speaker was just humming, was sent back and got it replaced by Thomann it took 10 days to get it replaced. The second one just quitted working last week that`s four months of use I use them for karaoke show`s just fridays and saturdays paired with a Tapco200fx mixer unpowered, the lower speaker was quit working while playing music I didnt had time to wait another 10 days to send it back to the warranty and got it fixed trough a local shop, when they opened the speaker the guys were amazed of the cheep stuff they found inside the magnet on this speaker is 100w very small size just the cone looks big actually this is a 150w speaker and it`s advertized as 250w with 1000W peak totaly lies. Do not buy this model if i wouldn`t see it with my eyes I will not belive EV can do this to customers.


Superb all round

Used in a small venue for all audio needs these active speakers have proven their ability to deliver believable choral and organ music alongside meeting the need for PA and disco. The install is permanent on brackets rated well above the weight on these. Listeners all comment how the clarity is maintained from low to very high volume with no need to adjust levels. Very pleased. Pros: huge vale for money, fantastic versatilty, relatively small size, great protection circuitry, good connection versatility, great sound dispersion angles horizontal and vertical so listeners up close dont feel it is too loud and furthest people say loud enough. Cons: Heavy but not too heavy, No way to fit protection to corners of what are plastic cabinets... not a big worry as they feel rugged and we have them fixed in place most of the time. No way to lock out settings from being played with - would be nice to be able to protect the levels once set either behind a cover or a key switch to keep public fingers from playing. Overall a great buy with no major drawbacks and will recommend to clients again.


EV ZLX 15P - Громко ! )
Aleksey Romanyuta 08.01.2022
More than two years of use experience. I played a lot and often .
Pros : there are no complaints about the build quality - nothing rustles or crackles ) . The sound is dense , shakes and in general , I can say about her -she is very loud even for 15"! DSP effects are quite working ! To work as a DJ - that's what you need!!! If the budget is small , but you want to have a respected and reliable brand on voice acting ) Cons : The case is very vulnerable - it gets stuck , dents , the coating is not wear- resistant , advice - buy a case for it! And by sound - it's loud, but flat and quite hard, there is not enough softness at the upper and middle frequencies. Singing in them is not very comfortable. Something like that... Good luck to everyone !


Full sound, light weight.

These sound as good as you could expect given the price, i.e. totally ok for most applications.
Compared to our older Mackie SRM450 V1 they sound slightly less powerful & a bit rounder in the high end - that´s the only negative thing I have to say about them after 24 gigs.

On the plus side:
A: Light weight, when you set up your PA yourself this can´t be over-appreciated - before the Mackie´s we had a 40 kg. poweramp & speakers the size of refrigerators ...
B: The placement of the handles makes these speakers easy to carry around as well as lifting them up on a stand/pole.
C: Easy to understand software menu on the back.
We just set them up for use on a pole, with sub´s crossing over at 120Hz, there ain´t much more to it.
D: Like a lot of modern PA speakers you can use one of these when doing troubadour-gigs, there are 2 inputs with separate level controls on the back.

Are they loud enough?
We´ve used them in rooms (& outdoors) taking 50 - 600 people & have never had to push them so far, actually the master on the mixer is usually just over 50% of max indoors.
