The Zx5 is a 15-inch, 2-way cabinet with the most elegant high-impact composite enclosure, featuring the newest generation of EV components: the all-new DXV3150, 500W, 15-inch woofer and the all-new 2-inch neodymium ND2 compression driver. The Zx5 is rated for 600 watts long-term power handling and is able of producing high SPLs whilst providing a very smooth frequency response. With two available coverage patterns (60-degrees x 60-degrees or 90-degrees x 50-degrees), two adjustable monitor angles (45- or 55-degrees) and ten built-in rigging and suspension points allowing for a variety of mounting accessories, the Zx5 fits a variety of applications: installations of individual speakers or clusters in entertainment, cultural or religious venues, as well as on stages with bands, musicians and P.A. rental companies. EV Zx5 loudspeakers are available in black and white for indoors and dedicated PI versions for outdoor applications.
EV’s commitment to innovations in loudspeaker design started in 1982 when EV launched the first professional composite speaker, the 100S. In 1984 its successor, the S-200, quickly became one of the most popular professional loudspeakers in the world, due to its unique combination of weight and performance. In 1994 EV set a new standard in performance and coverage with the Sx200, which evolved into the Sx300, which fast became “the industry standard”. Now, 10 years later, EV once again raises the performance bar in professional sound reinforcement with the launch of the Zx5.
The Zx5 is the first available loudspeaker system to benefit from an all-new woofer generation from EV, one of world’s most respected loudspeaker components manufacturers. The DVX3150 is a 15-inch, 500W continuous (2400 peak) rated woofer, utilizing a 3” voice coil, extended excursion suspension, high-efficiency motor structure and FAC (Forced-Air-Cooling) technology to provide a reliable and superior audio performance.
